We all collectively as photographers deal with some of the same job “issues”. Whether it be pre-shoot nerves, staying up late to finish galleries for clients or fatigue & aches from a full day of shooting. Sometimes our jobs can be hard on our bodies and it is nice to be able to get some relief. Most of the time I catch myself reaching for coffee and ibuprofen in the mornings. My story goes back before WPPI. I was having some of these issues and kept hearing of these essential oils and how they were helping people. Like most, and maybe even you right now, I wasn’t convinced. I not only wasn’t convinced but I didn’t want to shell out any money on something that I didn’t know would work for me. On the way to WPPI, the week before, I had an ear infection. I had received my course of antibiotics but the infection didn’t die off quick enough. I rode a full day of flights with an ear throbbing and feeling pretty green. While on the plane, there was a girl using her essential oils, which again sparked my interest. Time and time again I kept seeing people’s success for themselves and family members all by just trying these oils. I went on not wanting to “risk” buying them for about 6 months before I finally took the plunge. For me personally, I decided all the hype and the health benefits would be worth trying. I have been using oils now for 3 months and am constantly surprised about what they can be used for. I am apart of some AMAZING support and informative groups, since I am still learning all the in’s and out’s! I wanted to write this article up to show you how they can help you and with ONLY using the kit oils!
FRANKINCENSE – Emotional support and use when feeling unbalanced. Great to help with fatigue! Scars and wrinkles also are no match.
JOY- Having a rough emotional day and needing a pick me up, this is definitely a must use!
LAVENDER- Needing help to relax and calm my mind from business issues. Added benefits for my family: relaxing for the kids, soothing leg cramps, bug bites and sores.
LEMON- Use this in water for cleansing, awakening and added flavor. Also use this for diffusing for my sinuses after being out in high pollen from a shoot. Every spring and fall my allergies are horrible and being in the weeds doesn’t help with my problems. Added benefits for my family: cleaning, soothing bug bites and even gum in the hair!
PANAWAY- LOVE THIS! I have joint health problems and this helps almost immediately. I also use this for tension headaches and it has taken my migraines down to just manageable headaches.
PEACE & CALMING – I use this with the lavender on days I can’t turn my brain off. This is like a sleeping pill, diffused. This is one of the oils most people start out wanting to try for their kids, since it has such high success!
PEPPERMINT- Another MUST have. I use this when I am just starting to get a headaches, have an upset stomach and feeling just off. I also have found relief with my sinus pressure with peppermint. Added benefits for family: Coughs & colds have been stopped dead in their track with peppermint at night. Battles fevers. Also used for belly aches.
PURIFICATION – I use this for bumps and cuts from sessions! Mosquito bites are no longer issues! I also was getting ear discomfort from my sinuses and used this in front of my ear for relief. Added benefits for the family: cleans and purifies the air from sickness, helps with bites. Acne. Sore throats.
THIEVES – Great for cuts and bites from sessions! Also helps keep me fight off the back to school sickness. Added benefits to the family: Combined with peppermint it is completely knocking out coughs & colds! Disinfectant to ward off more bad germs. I had a dental filling and used this to help with the ache & pain.
VALOR – I use this with my headaches on my neck and combined with the peppermint is great! Also a good one to diffuse with joy to have a pick me up. Great to ward off fatigue.
