The Atkinson house has been hit by the plague--the plague of virus after ear infection after stomach bug.
13 weeks y'all.
We have been sick for 13 weeks in a row! That's 8 ear infections, 4 head colds, 2 stomach bugs, 1 ruptured ear drum, and 1 raging fever virus.
No partrich in a pear tree needed.
And I am done! We had been dabbling in essential oils-just dipping our toes in really-but now we are diving in. We are gathering oil recipes for kids, adults, cleaners and household products alike. We will test them (safely) and report back when we find what works. But we are definitely in!
Now I'm not saying I'm anti-tylenol or over the counter meds (I still love my modern medicine) but if we have a headache I will try the oils before breaking out the medicine cabinet. It's more of a "we will use what works" be it medicines or be it oils.
I don't think oils are cure alls, but I do see the natural properties behind some of them that could help us in health and everyday life. I have also witnessed trial and errors by others and have seen (when used correctly) the benefit oils can be for ones health and wellness.
So send on those recipes! I will be starting with my recent Pinterest finds but I'm open to suggestions!
