Essential oils – more than smelling good.


Over the course of my life with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), I have continually sought ways that some of my own personal struggles can be relieved. I know that living gluten free will help with my digestion, staying active can help with physical challenges and remaining positive is so important. In addition, I have been introduced to the way that essential oils can play a part and help to ease the emotional and stressful things that are bound to come up in life.

Let’s talk about how essential oils have helped me and could help a person living with MS or other challenges. I am currently a student at an online university and frankincense oil has helped me with studying during my “best” hours. Using oils helps me increase my productivity when I read and helps to keep my thoughts clear when I am writing. Besides keeping my focus while I’m studying, I have yet to take a test without diffusing an essential oil. I diffuse oil in my office which helps to keep my focus in check. When I go to bed at night, I am never without lavender oil diffusing in my room. It helps to take my mind from all of the day’s activities, easing me into sleep. Before I fall asleep, I often find myself over-analyzing the details of the day and focusing on my own challenges and limitations. Besides smelling amazing, essential oils have helped me to achieve peace and acceptance before I fall asleep. I stay asleep longer without those pesky thoughts I am sometimes awakened by – the “what-ifs” in life.
I value the things I have faced, especially those things that can help me to manage this disease. I have learned that with a positive outlook and embracing the wealth of information out there, no matter how simple it may seem, I am capable of living happily with Multiple Sclerosis.
