I ran into a guy recently whose daughter was suffering from laryngitis and he felt like he was coming down with the same thing. So I looked up which essential oil might be good for laryngitis and had him rub a drop of frankincense oil on his throat (the outside, not the inside!) as an experiment to see if it would help. It did! Within a day his symptoms stopped and he never got what his daughter had.
Now, I’m not here to say whether or not he would have come down with something worse without the oil. I’m the world’s biggest skeptic, so I’m constantly experimenting with the oils that I sell to prove to myself that they really do work. And I’m constantly surprised and delighted that they DO. I have a stack of reference materials to guide and direct me in the use of which oils to apply to what problem, and I’m always careful to tell people how to use them.
Another friend is recovering from a surgery on his throat, so I recommended that he try the frankincense. But someone had given him some oregano oil for a problem with his arm and he had a bad reaction to it and had to wash it off, so he didn’t want to try any other oils. I have no idea whether the oil he used was pure, or if it was recommended for his problem or how much he used. But now he’s afraid to try anything else. I wish he had talked to me before trying it. There are a lot of people out there who don’t know what they’re doing, so I try to err on the side of caution. I don’t know everything about essential oils, but I have access to materials and people that give me guidance when I need it. I’m willing to admit when I don’t know something, but I’m willing to do the work to find out rather than just guess and hope for the best. I think for that reason, people are more inclined to trust me.
I’ve seen great success with the oils helping some with psoriasis, pain of arthritis, the pain I sometimes get from giving a lot of massages, and I’ve recently sold some oils to a guy with some knee tissue problems…I’m anxious to see the results of that. The oils have been especially helpful with emotional issues–anger, stress, frustration. There are some oils whose smell just brings on a sense of calmness. They are truly amazing.
Try them sometime. Be sure to ask about the quality of the oils you are buying. Make sure that they are ISO Certified, 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils.
