My husband is even more skeptical than I was about essential oils. He would not let me use them on him because he already knew they wouldn't work.
I recently purchased a diffuser. I couldn't afford a name brand one, so I just purchased mine off of Amazon. I love it! It changes colors, you can keep it on one color, or you can turn the light off. I find it relaxing watching the colors change, but that's just me.
Anyway... Back to the story.
My husband has horrible allergies. He has tried most allergy medications with no relief. So I look up online what oils would be good for allergies. I ended up purchasing Breathe and Purify (at this point I already decided it would save me money to sign up the membership). I finally get them and I immediately open them. I have to smell everything when it comes to oils!
He gets home from work and his eyes are watery and he is sneezing like crazy. He goes upstairs for something and I put a few drops of Breathe and Purify in the diffuser. He comes back downstairs and he wanted to know what that smell was. He liked it. I told him they were some new oils I got. He started doing homework and within a few minutes I noticed he wasn't sneezing anymore. He hadn't sneezed in quite some time. I asked him how he was feeling and he said he felt pretty good.
He went back to homework and I turned the diffuser off. It wasn't long and he was sneezing again. I then walk back over to turn the diffuser back on. A bit of time goes by and he isn't sneezing. I looked at him and said how are those allergies. He stated that he felt relief. I had a huge smile on my face and he wonders what I've been up to. So I told him what was in the diffuser and he was in disbelief. Now we keep Breathe and Purify on hand.
