It was in December 2016, and Khaleel was warded due to bronchiolitis.

It brought me back to all the times Khayla was warded due to the same reasons, and I was so worried that history would repeat itself. Furthermore, our family has a long history of asthma and eczema from arwah Mummy’s side, however, that did not stop me from looking for ways to help improve my family’s health.

I have been hearing about essential oils and how they can play a role in our health, mood & well being but I was skeptical to try them because I thought how on earth can inhaling or applying oils help anyone, right?
I was introduced to the person whom I bought my first essential oils from a.k.a mak minyak through a friend of mine. From day 1, she was very helpful as I asked so many questions before I actually decided to proceed with my purchase. She still is very, very, very helpful! Hehe.

The first oils I bought were Frankincense, Peppermint, Thieves, Lemon, RC and the Dewdrop Diffuser (including Lemon & Lavender) and I got them delivered right to the hospital where Khaleel was admitted.

My first Essential Oils purchase!

How do these oils work?

I am actually planning to write a separate post on this but in short, when we inhale these oils, our nerves send signals to the limbic system of our brain (center of memory & emotion), other areas of our brain & our lungs. When applied topically, they are absorbed into our skin & bloodstream & go to work. As a result, improved wellness! InshaAllah.

Soon, I realised that the more I read about essential oils, the more I am intrigued.
Similarly, the more I use them, the more I want to use more. Haha.
Little did I know that this will be the beginning of an exciting journey!

My brand of choice for essential oils is of course Young Living. I will share with you on the reasons on why I choose Young Living in a separate post, InshaAllah.

Among the staple oils in our house are:
1. Thieves – for immune support
2. RC – for respiratory support
3. Stress Away – as its name suggests, for my sanity. Haha.
4. Digize – for digestive support
5. Lavender – to calm & sooth after a looong day.
6. Lemon – immune, respiratory & effective house cleaner.
7. Peppermint – energizing, gives me the zest I need to start my day.

I make sure my kids get ‘oiled’ everyday now. Heck, even I get ‘oiled’ everyday too.

It took me over a year to have the confidence to share my experience with all of you.❤
Alhamdulillah, I’m so blessed Allah chose me to use these amazing oils and to share them with you.

Have you heard about essential oils prior to this? Do share. 🙂
