With my monthly little lady showing up, cramps are at an all-time high! I hate cramps. Don’t you hate cramps? I’m sure everyone hates cramps. When my time of the month shows up, I always find myself lathered in lavender essential oil and, with the amount that I put on, the bottle ends up practically empty and my soul smells like lavender. My freaking soul, I tell you! I am like a walking lavender garden on the week of my period. It’s not to say that lavender doesn’t smell good but that’s not the way essential oil should be applied, I learned the hard way. This Essential Oil Cramps Roll-on is so good you’ve got to bow down, unless you have cramps and cannot move for the life of you.
Anyhow, I’ve been trying to figure out how I can relieve myself of the pain that my monthly friend causes. When a woman gets her period, cramps are no joke! There’s no time to entertain the thought of Midol or Advil, especially in our house. After researching all the essential oils that can contribute to the healing of cramps (of any kind), I came across a few essential oil that we already had it on medicine cabinet. As always, I was out on a mission to find some healing!
I can tell you for sure that with this Essential Oil Cramps Roll-on I am Essentially Healed, pun intended of course. I grabbed all the essential oils I needed out of my medicine cabinet and my mission again! A little bit of this and a little bit of that with a hint of this and a hint of that. It’s like there’s little fairies running around our house at all times with little ideas. They come and whisper great ideas into our ears and set us on a mission. God sent, of course!
At the end of the day, that’s what Essentially Healed is all about, little fairies with ideas that bring you all the goodness I have to offer. Although I don’t entertain the thought of taking over-the-counter medications, I do enjoy entertaining the thought of magic little fairies running around our house with ideas better than the ones on Pinterest.
