The oil and crafting journey...
Updated: Mar 11
Its silly isn't it? To ramble on about me and my journey? No. Well ok. Sometime shortly after Eric and moved to Rolling Meadows in 2008 I went to a essential oil class and wanted to live without so many chemicals and use the oils derived from plants in daily life. I became very intrigued about how to help myself and others 🤔
I healed myself from a sinus infection with essential oils during a very bad springtime allergy bout. Oregano and Tea Tree Oil in a steam pot and ingested cured my sinus infection. I thought WOW 👏 this is amazing. I continued on my path of discovery.
So I am all in with the oils and stop using household cleaners and am paying more attention to not using products that have 20 letters in the description 🙃.
I create a polish and use less expensive oils to make a counter cleaner. I use baking soda to clean the tub, sink and toliet and vinegar and water to clean floors. I start using oils in some baking and cooking such as peppermint brownies, cilantro oil in the salsa and basil oil in spaghetti. I make my own homemade toliet wipes.
Invited to several oil classes and learning about what oils work best for me and getting into sharing with people. I was kinda being pushed into selling and having classes. Emotional response oils were introduced and I had a few people over and we made inhalers and customized rollers for each person. It didn't really take off like I thought it would.
We would face a horrible foot injury for Eric and I really had a hard time working at all and caring for him. We had a disabled roommate as well. I abandon hopes on having a stable oil teaching business. My work was volatile with personnel changes and us moving again so I had to quit driving so far and continue to use my oils personally and share where I could. I would make gifts for people with oils in them and continue to make homemade bug repellant and cook with them. I would also face a horrible foot injury that is just now calmed down enough to make life somewhat easier.
