Traveling with Essential Oils
by Cheryl L. McClure
Recently I took a trip to Utah and I experienced a drastic change in climate that affected me in ways I had not expected. Salt Lake City is a beautiful place to visit and my friend and I rode the TRAX rail system, each day to get to the convention center from our hotel. We arrived Tuesday afternoon and by Thursday afternoon my face was red, my sinuses inflamed. I felt as though I was going down, like the Titanic, feeling miserable, I could hardly breathe through my nose. It was simply a case of my body reacting to the climate differences. From humid Texas to dry Utah!!
Here’s a concept - listening to your body. Do you listen to yours? Especially, when you are rocking along in life and something changes in it, do you recognize the differences?
Did you know that Inner Defense basically contains Thieves in a gelcap? Per the YL website, it “reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function”. Just what I needed to fight back. I began taking dosages that night when I got back to the hotel. The instructions say “Take 1 capsule daily in a.m. or take 1 capsule 3-5 times daily when stressed.”
I was desperate and wanted to make sure I could go to the farm the next day, so I took additional doses during the middle of the night as I was not sleeping well and kept thinking, I want to go to the farm tomorrow!!!! I didn’t go way overboard but realizing that the way oils need to be reapplied for effectiveness, I thought this would increase my chances of fighting off the reaction.
