Amazed again!!! Seriously. A few weeks ago my neighbor came over to drop off some home-grown veggies. She wanted to say thank you for my husband hauling off a large tree limb from her yard that had fallen down in the Christmas Week Storm. I invited her in and we sat in my living room chatting over a cup of tea (cool right… how many people do you know who actually have a neighbor just show up with home-grown veggies and then comes in to “sit a spell” over a cup of tea… I felt like I was on the Walton’s) and as we visited she asked me what the beautiful scent was. I told her I was diffusing Thieves Oil. Her face lit up with a big smile. “I haven’t heard of Thieves Oil since I was a little girl” she told me. She went on to tell me stories of how her grandmother use to mix up what they called GreatGram’s recipes to help with whatever they were dealing with.
My neighbor is in her 70’s and as I listened to her stories I felt like I was receiving way more than just home-grown veggies. We enjoyed visiting back and forth sharing age-old wisdom that she brought and new-found wisdom I had to share. She loved my oils. We talked about each one (and I currently have 29 different oils and blends) She laughed and shared remedies she remembered GreatGram using on her and her brothers. Many of the oils I now use to help my family she grew up with as their main source of aide and healing! She was pleased to hear these oils were making their way back into our daily lives.
Several days ago she came back over but this time I could tell her face looked worried and troubled. I was outside cleaning out my car when she walked up and asked if I had a moment. She went on to explain to me how her six-year-old great-granddaughter had gotten head lice and due to some developmental issues she struggles with and a very dangerous past reaction to another OTC drug they were frantically searching for an alternative to the toxic lice treatments available. They tried a mayonnaise treatment and left it on for over 12 hours!! … but it didn’t get rid of the head lice. My neighbor was so worried about her great-granddaughter! I immediately got out my huge Essential Oils Desk Reference book and looked up head lice treatments. I found that all the oils they suggested I happen to have on hand. I mixed up what she needed and sent it with her.
It has been about a week now and she just came over again this time with tears in her eyes. She immediately hugged me and with a very broken voice explained how well her great-granddaughter was doing. There is no sign of any head lice and her great-granddaughter experienced no adverse reactions to these natural helpers. In addition her great-granddaughter’s hair is softer and more manageable than ever, and her great granddaughter keeps saying how pretty her hair smells! My neighbor kept saying thank you again and again as she headed back home with happy tears and a huge smile on her face. Three months ago I wouldn’t have had this knowledge to help her.
I am SO loving this oily life!!!!:) ~ SHARING ~ CARING & GROWING ~
