Hi guys! Some of you may know that I love essential oils. I was hesitant at first because seriously how can a smell cure what medicine didn’t even help? Last summer I jumped on to the young living bandwagon and I haven’t looked back. Now yes young living is one of those paramid things where you try and get more people below you to make more. But you don’t have to do it as a business. You can just enroll and reap ths benifits of doscounted oils. I want to tell you about my favorite oil. Lavender oil.
I’ve been a long time fan of lavender essential oil. I first tried it about 5 years ago, my anxieties were so bad it was painful I was signed up to volunteer at a summer camp with church I didn’t want to go back on the medication* so I thought I would try essential oils. Lavender oil is soothing, and can lull you to sleep, calm anxious nerves and it has a ton of bacteria killing abilities.
I’m not going to lie I didn’t love the smell of it, and it took a bit to get used to it. Once I did, I loved it. It smells comforting and soothing.
I started using it by rubbing 2-3 drops in my hands then running them through my hair. I’d also taken a bit of felt and glued it to the back of plastic BFF necklace my niece gave me. I also put it in my diffuser and let them comforting smell soothe me to sleep.

Where do I get it?
I purchase my oils through young living. They don’t reccomed using oiles from like the grocery store since the FDA doesn’t check them so there’s no way to know know what you’re getting is pure and safe. Young living has a seed to seal promise. Where they gurantee that it’s pure and safe.
