I've read some of your blogs and noticed that some of you are plagued with worry and panic attacks, depression and those things that Zoloft, Prozac and Cymbalta try to fix.
I have panic attacks, nightmare where my kids are being killed, depression, worry, and sleepless nights. (I think that is all) About two months ago I was feeling really down and was looking online for something that would help me, but wasn't a prescription.
A little back ground ..... In 2007 I got mononucleosis for the first time. And I had it bad. I ended up having to quit my job because I couldn't even work part time. Well since then I have been sick with a lot of stuff that there isn't an answer for and half of the prescriptions that I have been on I have had adverse reactions to. So I was looking for something that would help me, but not give the "adverse reactions."
I was looking at herbs when I found Aromatherapy. And I really started looking into it. Now the site that I found was saying that just the smell of something could lift your moods. And me being almost desperate for help thought I would try it and see what happened.
So the next time I was in my local walmart I looked for essential oils and a warmer. I think I spent 10 bucks on the warmer, the candles and the oils. That was 56 days ago.
I haven't had a nightmare. I haven't had a panic attack. My depression has improved. The worries will pop into my head then pop back out. I sleep better. I feel better.
Every night before I go to bed I put a little oil in the warmer, light a tea candle, then go to bed. Most of the time I don't even smell it, unless I leave the room then come back. But even then I just smell it for a second.
I asked hubby if he is noticing a difference in him and he thinks so. Now I'm not saying that you should stop taking any meds and start doing this. Or that this will fix all you problems. What I am saying is that it has helped me out a whole lot. And that it's simple, with no side effects, and CHEAP!! The oils I get are only $.83 a piece! And I had to get a new bottle of the Jasmine last week. so they last a while. I use Jasmine, and Rose, and White flower & Jasmine.
I don't remember the sites that I visited, but there are tons of them.
I hope this can help some of you.
Have a great day!
