Testimony to Healing

As a small intro, my name is Petey and I am Melanie’s other half. I am excited to join my wife in this journey of sharing the knowledge of oils that we have been so blessed to find over the last few years. I was definitely a, self admitted, long term skeptic of essential oils when Melanie started her journey because I was stuck in a singular mode of thinking that our modern/mainstream way of living was all we needed.  I now think as a whole, people are really starting to wake up to the fact that there are different ways we can protect our health rather than consuming so many toxic chemicals or pharmaceuticals. A perfect example of that is essential oils and our “Heal” roller blend recipe.

Melanie shared our mutual “Eureka” moment with oils after our daughter was born via repeat cesarean. If you haven’t read that post, or need the “Heal” roller recipe, check it out HERE.

The thing that I noticed through that experience was how quickly the redness was receding from her incision area after using this healing roller 2 times daily. Normally after surgery, you see that puffiness stay for a while in the scars. In fact it can be a big issue for athletes, if the incision is in a bad spot (from experience). Watching her heal so quickly is what cemented me as a believer and I really dove into all this “hippy” stuff even more after I saw her results.

We definitely don’t want to keep this liquid gold secret to ourselves so even before this blog we told all our friends and family about oils and our personal stories using them. That is what happened with this next story.

Recently my father got awful news. He went in for what he thought was going to be a routine stint for a partly blocked artery. The plan was that he be out of the hospital by the afternoon, and my parents would be out in time to see a movie. Well that procedure didn’t go the way they hoped, and it turned out he needed emergency open heart surgery, triple bypass. The doctor said 99 out of 100 people would have had a massive heart attack in his condition! So needless to say I was a mess, In Arizona, 1,100 miles away frantically trying to find a way home in time to see him. It was the fastest 12 hour stretch of my life trying to move everything around to get out to Texas. While I was running around packing, my amazing wife remembered to make our “Heal” roller for my dad and the scars he would have post surgery. She thankfully packed it in my bag. After the surgery and a short few days post op, my dad’s chest scar looked amazing already. The surgeon had done a masterful job. But the leg that they had to get the vein from… not so much. It looked terrible. Well see for yourself:

The Dr felt bad but they were having an issue getting the vein from his right leg, so they “quickly” went into his left leg to get a vein. Well this scar didn’t heal so well, constantly giving him issues. He used the hospital surgical soap as directed, but it was still puffy, irritated, not fully closed, and itching. He was reluctant to use the roller at first, as it was somewhat against the doctor’s direction. But thankfully,  my mom talked him into it. The results were even faster then my wife’s. The next morning, after the 1st use, both my mom and dad noticed a large reduction in the redness and swelling and a short3 days later it was a totally different scar!  Here take a look:

To see and hear my dad get a full personal display of what these oils can do for their life is one of the more gratifying experiences i’ve ever had. My only hope and prayer is that someone else out there will read this recipe and use it to improve their own life. Trust me you will not be disappointed. Take back control of your health with these natural healing oils that have been used for thousands of years and continue to bless lives today.

Plants Heal

One of my biggest “Eureka” moments with oils was right after having my second child. My birth story with my 1st was not the beautiful experience that a 1st time mom hopes for. We ended up in an emergency cesarean after 24 hours of labor and my Dr. delivered a 10.3 lb angel of a baby boy. Thank the Lord that everyone was healthy and happy but it also left me with a hard recovery and a big scar.

When we found out I was pregnant with our 2nd child, we already knew that it would be a repeat c-section. By this time I had introduced oils into our home and I was bound to have a different experience with my surgery recovery. I searched the knowledge of fellow oilers and I was gifted with this amazing roller recipe:

10ml Glass Roller Bottle

30 Drops Helichrysum  – Key Ingredient For Healing & Circulation

30 Drops Frankincense – Great for Skin in Many Ways & Anti-Infectious

30 Drops Juniper – Nerve Support, Cleanser & Diuretic

30 Drops Lavender – Anti-Inflammatory &  Skin Cell Renewal + 10000 more reasons

Top it off with a Carrier Oil

This is a very strong recipe. I would normally only have 30 drops in a 10ml roller for an adult’s every day use. I knew I would need a super roller so I ordered all of these oils and had it ready before our scheduled delivery.

I was in the hospital for 4 days postpartum and I did not use the roller during this time. I wanted to give my incision a little time to close up before introducing the oils. *Just as a disclaimer, the doctors and nurses did tell me not to put anything on the incision and you will probably get this same advice. I am not a doctor so please come to your own decision.*

Around day 5, once we were home, my husband helped me apply the roller AROUND the incision but not ON it. We did that at least twice a day for about a week. Once I saw a noticeable improvement, I started to apply the roller AROUND and ON the incision and continued applying at least twice a day. Preston and I definitely knew this was a world of difference in healing from my first experience but the validation came on day 14 when I went in for my 1st post operation check up at my Dr.’s office.

The nurse practitioner (who I hadn’t seen before at the practice) examined me and then checked her chart. She had a confused look on her face so I asked what was going on. She asked me “How long ago did you have your baby?” I told her “2 weeks.” She then said “There is no way. Your incision healing looks like it is at least 6-8 weeks post surgery.”

WOW guys! I literally giggled on the exam table and was so excited to tell her about the oils I have been using to help with the healing. She eagerly listened and said that she would have to share that with her other patients. I found out later that all of the nurses in the practice found out about my super healing incision from her.

This recipe can be used for all kinds of wound healing and scar appearance reduction. I have passed along this gold to others who have also used it with success (read Petey’s post about his dad HERE)

I hope that you can find as much happiness and gratification with this recipe as we have. Enough to giggle 🙂

My Oil Journey

final-0067-e1538787952225.jpg

I could throw statistics and graphics and studies at you all day that would convince you of the high quality, care, and perfection that goes into these oils… but I am not going to do that right now. (There will be some of that in later posts.) Right now I am going to speak from the heart of a mamma who just wants to do well by her kids, her husband and sometimes, most importantly, herself.

This world is scary! There is new information coming out every second about how that seemingly innocuous item sitting on your nightstand can now cause you cancer and kill you by the time you are 50 or how that one staple in your pantry is for SURE the cause of childhood development delays and OMG you have been feeding it to your toddler since practically birth…. there will always be something on the internet to place the fear in your soul that you are doing this all wrong. First of all you are not. Secondly, some information can be good and fruitful and fulfilling to our lives. This was oils for me.

I sat by watching my friends post about these little potions for what seemed like years but was probably just about 8 months or so and was envious of the mass of knowledge and expertise they must have to know what to do and how to incorporate them into their lives. My eyes were open to this world and I wanted it badly but was intimidated and quite frankly financially strapped to “jump into the oily life.” Christmas was coming around the corner and I decided to combine all my wish list items to just one, a Young Living Starter Kit. That was what I wanted from Santa in 2016. Why Young Living? I now know all sorts of answers to that question, but at the time I had a friend who I trust with my life who swore by them and that was enough for me. Geesh she is a smart one! It’s not often you hit the jackpot on the first try but that’s what this was for me. The quality, oh the quality you guys!

At first when I cracked open that Starter Kit I felt a bit lost because I didn’t think I knew enough to use them properly or concoct the various recipes that I needed to use to see a difference. What if I “did it wrong” or “used too much” or… or…(insert here). I am sure most of you have had that feeling or are currently feeling it right now. Don’t fret! There is a whole community of oily friends that are your instant BFFs when you start down this path. I am a part of a few great, heaven sent, groups on social media that lift each other up and share their infinite wisdom, experience, and Top Chef quality recipes. You too will have access to these amazing library of people if you join me in this journey. I have never been led astray and I learn something new every single day by searching in or asking the people of those groups. I also have armed myself, and those who purchase a kit through me, with additional resources of recipes/tricks/tips to use the first 11 oils of the kit and more. Don’t let this be the reason you don’t introduce these amazing potions into your life. I am here! This blog is here!

I started out right away making rollers, trying different diffuser recipes, applying on every body part and taking veggie capsules internally. Using oils in a way to support my family’s overall health, sleep, and mood. Ditching and switching products in my house. I had several “Eureka” moments early on that fueled my fire to take this seriously, research, and dig in. I truly believe that until you have a moment like that with an oil or a product you won’t really understand the hard truth that what we have been putting in our bodies is mostly crap and we actually can use pure God provided plants to help us with almost anything. I want you to have that moment too.

In this blog I will share my Eureka moments with you, pour out the knowledge that I have acquired from others and pass on all that I can to help inspire you on your own journey. Hopefully there will be a laugh or two along the way.

This is just the beginning my friends.
