This past November I came down hard and fast with the flu – I’m 99% sure that it was the flu because I’ve had it in the past and you cannot forget the feelings and symptoms of the flu – they are terrible!
So, I need to go to work, I need to take care of my baby and get him to and from daycare, I need to make us dinner, take care of the 2 dogs and the house. I had no family available to help me during this time and my husband was also gone. I could have reached out to friends but they’re super busy and most have kids or are pregnant and I was not trying to get any of them sick. Thankfully, one of my babysitters was able to pick up and drop off my son which was a HUGE help.
I knew instantly I had to get better ASAP if I was going to be able to get back to work and back to taking care of my baby. I quickly got my stash of essential oils and went to work.
I started by taking my capsule of Lemon, Frankincense, Thieves, and olive oil with a glass of water. Then, I went back to my room and ran my dew drop diffuser with Thieves and Purification. I put 2 drops of Thieves on the bottoms of my feet and then went to sleep. A couple hours later, I woke up and it was still running. This diffuser by the way runs for 4+ hours, and is more than just an aromatic diffuser. The Dewdrop also functions as a humidifier and atomizer in one simple-to-use product. (If you want to know more about this diffuser or any of Young Living’s diffuser’s, let me know, as I have a comparison chart I can share with you).
I repeated this process non-stop. I took the capsule 3 times a day, when the diffuser ran out, I added more and ran it again, and I rubbed 2-3 drops of Thieves Essential Oil (EO) on the bottoms of my feet 3 times a day. I drank a lot of water and POM Wonderful too (gotta stay hydrated!). Another thing I did was I made Thieves Tea. This recipe calls for the following:
- 1 mug of hot water
- 1 tablespoon of honey (try to use a local honey if you can)
- 2 drops of Lemon EO or Lemon Vitality
- 2 drop of Thieves EO or Thieves Vitality
*note – you can use either EO or Vitality, it does not matter in this case. I am just listing both for awareness.
Stir and enjoy!
Within 24-48 hours I was fully recovered. What over the counter meds do you know get rid of the flu or flu like symptoms within 24 hours, to where you’re up and getting back to the grind? None, that I am aware of. To be honest, even if there was an OTC medicine, I probably wouldn’t use it. I just like knowing what is going into my body and my house and I know that with Young Living Essential Oils (YLEOs) I am getting 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.
