In Sickness and In Health

For those that follow me, you know that I was struck with a cold on Sunday that had me down and out yesterday.  Even this morning, I felt pretty miserable, but only for a couple of hours.  During that time, I continued to use my essential oils.  I've been pretty consistent using them since the symptoms started.  Along with my essential oils, I also took a pain reliever this morning for a pesky headache.  After a while, I felt good enough to go into work!

After feeling under the weather for a couple of days, I jammed to some favorite music on my drive.  It's so nice to feel like myself again!

In reflection, I can't say whether or not the essential oils helped.  There are a ton of people around that are sick, with way more than just a cold.  Did the essential oils help to reduce my symptoms, or did they do absolutely nothing at all?  I don't have an answer in this specific case.  What I can say is that I hope they made an impact.  I am always on the lookout for a natural remedy versus a prescription or over the counter medication.  Regardless of what contributed to my return toward health, I am thrilled that I am feeling better!

(Also, much, much love to my hubs and daughter for taking such great care of me.)

Be open to what comes.
