Most of you know, I was diagnosed with MS last September. I was experiencing many symptoms before my diagnosis, but we weren't sure what was going on. I started looking into the oils and other ways to improve my life (supplements, yoga, diet, etc). I drastically changed my diet last year and began the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. Many of the mamas talked about the oils and supplements. So, I started researching as much as I could! I wanted to know the details, what they helped with, how to use them, etc. I started seeing a few friends post about the oils, specifically Young Living and so I began asking questions and I bought my first oil: Peppermint!
Y'all, peppermint helps with so many things in my life! Mainly headaches and stomachaches! I start getting a headache and I reach for my peppermint. I rub it all over the back of my neck and upper shoulder area, as well as my temples (careful not to get in my eyes! That would burn!!). Within a few minutes, I feel the icy refreshing feeling and the headache going away. If my headache lingers (like a migraine), I place an ice pack on my head, and apply more peppermint and lay on the bed for 15-20 minutes and my headache goes away! I have done this several times in the past 4 months and it has helped me every time! I only use ibuprofen now when I am out and cannot get to my ice pack at home. I literally bought a 40 ct of Advil in early December and just now ran out. I was having to use Advil on a daily basis before my peppermint oil arrived!
