When I fell pregnant at 20 with Tigah Rose I had a horrible pregnancy, I was sick, run down, constantly exhausted and couldn’t keep a thing down which resulted in shingles.
Shingles is an extremely painful viral disease that causes severe nerve pain and attacks the immune system, since then I get them on my face and spine up to 4 times a year, every time I get them I get migraines for weeks and not much can help it besides meds.
I had never thought to use natural therapies or essential oils and can honestly say I probably wouldn’t have if the absolutely gorgeous Amy hadn’t reached out to me and offered to send me an introductory kit to doTERRA oils. After a quick chat Amy asked what I really would like to work on and when I mentioned I had shingles and migraines she knew exactly what could help and sent me a blend called Past tense along with lavender, lemon and peppermint oils.
I have been taking meds for the past three weeks for the migraines caused by shingles on my face so the day they arrived I excitedly opened the box up to a beautiful hand written message explaining how to use the past tense along with the oils, I followed the directions and rubbed a little past tense on my temples and neck and shoulders as well as rubbing a small amount of peppermint on the roof of my mouth, made myself a peppermint tea and decided not to take meds.
I didn’t have a headache all day!
I was shocked and wasn’t sure if it was a placebo effect but I didn’t care, the next day I did the exact same thing as well as using the slightest amount of lavender when the kids had gone to school and for the first time in longer than I can remember I napped for an hour….I napped! It felt glorious and I am certain it was the lavender oil that helped calm my forever racing mind.
We used it in my room last night and my toddler slept a full 12 hours! I am taking this as a win and will keep you updated but for now I am definitely on team essential oils!
If you would like to try them I definitely recommend talking with Amy Innes from Amyinnes.com she was unbelievably knowledgeable, she has a truly beautiful story to tell and genuinely wants to help women transform their lives. You can find her on Facebook and Instagram ❤️
