Are you one of those parents who runs to the doctor with the first sign of a cough, or do you research and try to find a natural remedy first?
We are part of the second group of parents.
Many of you know that I decided to be gluten free in early 2014, and in the Fall we started investing in essential oils to promote our family's wellness. We generally try to exhaust our natural resources to find a solution before we'll make a doctor's appointment, unless of course it's a serious wound or other type of accident or emergency.
I have especially enjoyed learning about natural remedies since our youngest son, Taz, has had so many respiratory problems. It is such an great thing for me as a parent to know that I am helping my child without the adding chemical drugs to his body that could potentially damage his system further.
Natural Remedy Online Resources
We have been so thankful to have access to essential oils here in Mexico. And we have found there is a great wealth of information online to help us know how to use them. I know not everything you read is truth, and discernment and personal research is advised regardless of the topic, but I have found several people to learn from whom I trust. For instance,
- This app has been a great source of education for us. I love that you can search by oil, blend, or topic.
- There is free access to Young Living's online users guide
- We are part of several different essential oil user's groups on Facebook where people share personal testimonies and experiences. (Let me know if you'd like to be added.)
- And (with discernment) Pinterest also offers a host of information, posts and recipes for natural alternatives. Click on the image to follow our Natural Health board on Pinterest:
