As many of you know by now, I moved 2,300 miles across country to a brand new state to follow the calling God has placed on my life. I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to move and start fresh! However, driving 2,300 miles over the course of 3 days can be exhausting and stressful. Not to mention, the little bit of sleep I was getting in between.
I suffer from migraines whenever I strain my eyes or have a lack of sleep and the road was NOT very kind to me for this! We drove mostly at night to avoid heavy traffic. Many nights, we would stop around 6pm, grab 4-5 hours of rest (if that some days) and get back on the road. Trust me when I say, I am SO THANKFUL I remembered to pack my oils in an area of the car where they were easily accessible! They definitely saved me on the road.. here's how!
Whenever I would get a migraine, I would pull over at a gas station or rest area to apply Peppermint Oil to the base of my neck and along the sides of my temples. I would then apply a small amount of Lavender Oil to the base of my neck over-top of the Peppermint. I would then inhale the remaining oils on my hands by cupping my hands over my mouth and taking a few deep breaths in. This helped tremendously with the migraines!!
When I would find myself becoming tired, I would pull out the Lemon Oil and Peppermint Oil. I added 1-2 small drops of each in the palms of my hands, rubbed them together, formed a cup over my mouth and breathed in deep. This would wake me up and help me to feel refreshed.
I felt myself becoming a little sick and congested from entering and exiting a multitude of temperatures, weather conditions and climates so I made sure to keep my OnGuard Oil Blend on my neck as well as the little's. At night, I rubbed Oregano Oil into the bottoms of my feet, topped with Frankincense Oil. Lastly, I rubbed a bit of the Breathe Oil Blend on my chest and I kid you not when I say, NONE of us got sick. Not a single person.
The last thing? You know all of that *yummy* gas station food you come across in each state? You know.. those hot dogs that have probably been sitting there all day but the kids are screaming they're hungry and you HAVE to get back on the road? Yep.. those. Gas station food definitely did NOT agree with me on the road however, thankfully I had my DigestZen Oil Blend and it SAVED ME so much! No indigestion, no upset stomach, no nausea... just smooth riding. All I had to do was put a bit of the oil around my naval area and I was good to go.
When I arrived, my husband was sick with body aches and flu like symptoms. I gave him an AromaTouch massage using Lavender, AromaTouch Oil Blend, Oregano Oil (on the foot bottoms) and Peppermint down his spine. He woke up the next morning feeling completely healed and good to go. He's now a 100% believer and helps share the word with our neighbors as well!!
When I say these oils are a lifesaver, that's a complete understatement. I don't know what I would have done without them!! There are sooo many other reasons why I absolutely love them and will continue to spread the word about them but this was something I just had to share because I know many of my readers travel!
If you're curious why these blends worked or if you have any questions about what could possibly work for you and your family, please email me or leave a comment below! I would love to have the opportunity to help you and your family. <3
