Works for me every time

Yesterday afternoon I started feeling a bit sick. I was outside taking care of the animals and I definitely was starting to not feel so good. I thought I need to just get in bed, cover up,  and put off the exercising today.  I needed rest worse than exercise right now.  My ears were feeling warm and I felt like I had a fever-my face was hot, and my stomach was feeling funny.  A few days ago I did visit some friends and they told me last week they'd been sick. Maybe I caught what they had, but I can't afford to be sick right now. I needed to nip this in the bud.

I took care of the animals, and as I was going inside I was thinking which essential oils would do the trick.  I came up with- Balsam FIr, Mountain Savory, and the essential oil blend Sacred Mountain®. These mostly conifer oils are soothing to my respiratory system. I got the bottles, and turning the lid of my container I make my homemade facials in, I put five drops from each bottle of essential oil into this shallow turned upside down top, and placed it near the intake of my CPAP machine. I thought this would be more concentrated as opposed to diffusing the oils into the entire room especially with my CPAP mask on.

I got ready for bed, put my mask on and turned the CPAP on, and could slightly smell the aromas of the essential oils. The oils would  work on my respiratory system with each breath while I slept.

Five hours later I woke up, and not a sign of any symptom I had before going to sleep. I'm writing this the next morning, and I'm feeling perfectly fine. Whatever was attacking me and making me feel sick, got the axe. Thanks to the essential oils.

 Fir essential oil natural constituents have antiseptic pulmonary properties, plus more.
 Mountain savory essential oil also has strong antiseptic properties, and a general tonic on the body, as well as anti-bacterial, anti-viral, immune-stimulant properties,  and more.
Sacred Mountain® essential oil is a blend of spruce, fir, cedarwood, ylang ylang, and pine
       essential oils. All to dilate, open, balance the respiratory system.

All without a pharmaceutical drug. Natural first for me, and so far essential oils work every time for me.

Note: essential oils need to be used cautiously at all times. They are very concentrated and could be harmful if not used properly and correctly. That goes for drugs as well.
