It’s Thursday which means it’s almost Friday and the first weekend of 2018. Who’s ready!? As soon as my back feels better as I think I must have slept on it wrong Tuesday night and warms back up, I will be I hope. Anyways, back in June, I started getting these breakouts which okay are normal, but after treating them with various Essential Oils, as usual, they still kept coming back. I decided to share what I finally had to do, so, let’s get started with “Required Scripts So Young Living to the Rescue…”
**Caution: the photos in this post are real and true pictures I took of myself. They are NOT pretty by no means. Also, I don’t have makeup on and I don’t wear makeup.**
They would come back, get worse, go away some, and then come back with a vengeance. Since I am stubborn to take prescriptions, I kept treating them myself, but finally, at the end of October, I went to the dermatologist. Results? Stress and hormonal. Really? I know it had been an extremely stressful year at between trying to pass the Core TEXES Test and things with my sister but I knew something else was going on and it was not stress or hormonal.
After visiting a doctor I go to regularly, I was referred to another who of which right away seemed to know exactly what was going on agreeing it wasn’t because of stress or hormones. Reluctantly, I agreed to take the prescriptions which were Bactrim and Bactroban. Basically, I have some type of bacteria that has to be killed from the inside out. I’m sure I could have eventually found a mixture of the Essential Oils and I would have kept trying if it wasn’t for my dad continuing his put down of nothing was working.
Don’t get me wrong, the Essential Oils I was using were working just working too slow for him. Looking back, I really should have done a good body cleanse diet such as the Cabbage Soup Diet, but since we were going back and forth between here and Dallas, it just was happening. So, here’s what I did end up using.
- Young Living LavaDerm Cooling Mist
- Young Living ImmuPro Chewable Tablets
LavaDerm Cooling Mist:
According to Young Living’s website, their LavaDerm “[p]romote[s] healthy skin […]. It’s made with skin-loving ingredients such as aloe, Lavender, Northern Lights Black Spruce, and Helichrysum to gently support healthy-looking skin. Its mild and gentle formula lightly moisturizes while also soothing and rejuvenating skin. Incorporate its refreshing feel and calming aroma into your nighttime routine or use it as needed throughout the day. The compact and convenient design of this skin moisturizer spray makes it easy to store wherever you need it, whether in your purse, travel bag, bedside table, or office desk.”
I decided to pull this out when the two medications I was using causing me to itch so much I thought I was going to die! One caused me to have hot flashes so to speak; which since for once it got super cold here, I didn’t particularly mind so much. Unfortunately, the ointment one was just causing me to itch really bad.
Thankfully the itching stopped so I could sleep, though I thought. Sadly, since it was cold outside and we had the heater on in the house, my hot flashes were not allowing me to sleep. The LavaDerm helped some with there being Lavender Essential Oil in it which is great for sleep, but not enough. So, I started using another Young Living product.
Young Living ImmuPro Chewable Tablets:
According to Young Living’s website, “ImmuPro™ has been specially formulated to provide exceptional immune system support when combined with a healthy lifestyle and adequate sleep to support the body’s needs.”
I started taking this back in the summer no thanks to the tests I was trying and finally passed but stopped since I didn’t need it so much anymore. Needlesstosay, I LOVE this stuff! It certainly helps me sleep when I need it most. I don’t take it every night so much anymore since I’m off the pill script, but at least I have it for when I do need it.
Getting Better and Why I Decided To Share:
I decided to share this only because it shows medications have side effects. Taking a prescription that causes someone to be comfortable wearing no sleeve tops in temperatures below 50 degrees is just wrong. Remember I’m prefer hot beachy weather and my blood was not made for temperatures below 70 degrees. Using Young Living Essential Oils keeps those side effects away.
With that said, I will always try to find a single or several Young Living Products to help me before resulting to taking a prescription. HOWEVER, for things like this, surgeries, and various other things I will ALWAYS take what is prescribed to me. All I want it to live a long healthy life and I believe Essential Oils will give me that. This bottom picture was taking December 18th. The photos found in this week’s “Random Tuesday” post were taking Christmas Day.
There you go! Though I reluctantly decided to take prescription medication, I still found myself to have to use my Young Living products. Since becoming a member of Young Living’s family in 2014, it has been life-changing. With already knowing a little about essential oils in general it was an easy switch.
