How I Got Started with Essential Oils: My Story

Yesterday I shared with you an amazing opportunity to get an essential oil kit + freebies valued at over $369 for just $150. Many of you have already taken advantage of that promotion, but I know that some of you are still on the fence.

This week I will be sharing everything that I know about essential oils and how much they have already impacted my life. For starters, as promised, I want to share with you how I got into all this, so here is my story!

The Awful Jaw Pain

jaw-painEarlier this year I was at rooming with a good friend of mine at a conference in Las Vegas. A few days prior to leaving for the conference I had some dental work done and less than 2 hours after arriving at the conference I felt an all too familiar pain in my right jaw. My first thought was “oh no, what terrible timing, this conference is going to be a complete nightmare”.

You see, a few years prior to all this I had some similar dental work done and it resulted in a jaw pain that I’ve never felt before in my life. It lasted for weeks and numerous trips to my dentist, doctor and even a specialist provided no answers or relief. I tried strong pain killers and even those wouldn’t touch the pain. I was absolutely miserable and the worst part was that all I could do was just wait it out. Those next couple of weeks were nothing short of awful. It did eventually go away, but it was after basically missing out on a few weeks of life.

So, I’m sure you can understand why the pain in my jaw was quite concerning, especially since I was out of town at a conference that I had spent a lot of money to attend. Now, here is where the story turns…

The Relief

After getting up to our room I told my friend Rachel about this pain and my history with it. Her first question to me was if I’d ever tried essential oils for the pain. Of course I hadn’t, but was willing to try anything at that point. That’s when she then pulled out a few small bottles of Young Living Essential Oils, placed a few drops of each in my palm and instructed me to massage it into my jaw. What happened next was amazing…instant relief. Like I said, I had tried some pretty strong pain killers for this same issue with not even a hint of relief, so I was pretty amazed that something as simple as Essential Oil could do so much. Each night of the conference Rachel gave me a few more drops and slowly but surly the pain subsided and finally went away altogether, in just a few days. What a blessing!


How I Got Started with Young Living

Over the next couple of months I didn’t think much about those amazing oils that Rachel introduced me to (one of those out of sight, out of mind things ;)), until she shared on Facebook that she had a few oil samples to send out and asked if anyone would want to try some. Yeah, I jumped on that one pretty fast! She sent me Young Living Thieves (now my favorite oil), Lavender and Lemon. After trying out these three for a variety of health, wellness and even cleaning uses I knew I was hooked and decided to order the Young Living Premium Kit.

Now here I am, using essential oils to replace prescription medicines, household cleaners and even to relieve stress. Even for the short time I’m been using them so far they have already made a tremendous difference in my life. With as many toxic, cancer causing products that there are on the grocery store shelves these days, it is so refreshing to know that I’m able to use Young Living Essential Oils to make a positive impact on my health and the health of my family.

    What oil did you use on your jaw? I have TMJ pretty bad and some relief sounds pretty darn good 😉

      Hi Jen! I used PanAway and Lavender on my jaw pain. They are both included in the starter kit. Young Living also has something called a blended oil called “Deep Relief” that I’ve read has helped many with TMJ. Here is one review that I read online:

      For over 20 years I’ve had a problem with my jaw. I have even had my jaw broken surgically. In all these years I have never been able to completely open my mouth and the TMJ pain has been terrible. I have tried everything from narcotics (legal) to massage with no real relief. On a whim, one day I decided to rub deep relief on the outside of my cheeks. truly, within minutes the pain was gone. I have been doing this for over two months now. I stopped for one day to test and the pain was back by that evening. I love this stuff. I use it every morning midday and at night before I go to bed. If you have any problems with TMJ please give this a try.

      Deep Relief will be part of my next order with Young Living (I can’t wait – it has SO many pain relief uses). I gave some PanAway to a friend that is dealing with a sensitive tooth just last night and she was able to eat ice cream for the first time in months. :)
