Why I’m a believer in essential oils

My name is Shelton Ray and I am a Certified Aromatherapist.  I have created this blog to use as a way to share information about how essential oils have changed my life both physically and emotionally.  I have now incorporated them in to my everyday life and am enjoying the benefits of these wonderful oils.

Why I’m a believer…..

Ten years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I was fortunate that it was caught early and no radiation or chemo was necessary, but both breast had to be removed.  I decided to have reconstruction surgery at the same time.  The doctors used my latissimus muscle for reconstruction.  About a year later I started having jaw pain.  I went to the dentist thinking I had a bad tooth.  The dentist actually said I needed a tooth pulled.  Of course I didn’t like that idea so I put it off.  Then I started having sinus pain.  After going through three rounds of antibiotics, I started having shooting pain from the back of my neck to the top of my head.  All of these pains were on the right side.  I finally made it to a neurologist.  I was told I had TN (trigeminal neuralgia) and there was no cure for it, only pain management.  A lot of people have this but I think mine started because the muscles in my back were rearranged.  I went to physical therapy for 6 months and it actually made it worse.  The doctor gave me different pain medications to try.  I tried acupuncture, micro-current, a chiropractor; pretty much anything to keep it under control.  I didn’t want to take pain medication except for ibuprofen.  I took about 6 to 8 a day.  This went on for over 6 years.  Finally it flared up again and I went to my chiropractor.  He had an aromatherapist who had just started working with him and suggested I spend some time with her before an adjustment.  The aromatherapist used PanAway, which is a Young Living Essential oil blend that included wintergreen, helichrysum, clove and peppermint.  She massaged it on all of the areas of pain.  I got up from the table completely pain free.  I became a believer and decided to buy the oils so I could treat myself when I felt the onset of the TN.  I have been able to manage it ever since with the oils.  I haven’t had an ibuprofen or any kind of pain medication since.
So that’s my story and have decided I can’t help but share it!  I’m now certified in Clinical Aromatherapy.  I use the essential oils in my everyday life for cleaning,
insomnia, stress relief, headaches, muscle aches and on and on.  I look forward to sharing my knowledge, experience and real life stories of how these oils can enhance your life.
