Back in October I found myself in a desperate situation with Anna Kate’s eczema. I had gotten lax about checking it because she usually will let me know when she needs help with it. One day I caught her scratching and said, “hey, let me see what you are scratching.” Y’all, I about had a panic attack right then and there…… Her legs were purple from mid-thigh to mid calf, covered in sores and those purple sores were hard and painful to the touch. I knew right then she had infection and the beginning stages of cellulitis. What did this mean for us? Another round of steroids and an antibiotic that may or may not work considering she has taken them so many times. This could be the time that her body decides it will be immune to one that works. Left untreated this could cause blood infections and a list of things I am not willing to speak out loud. Knowing the side effects of the steroids and not knowing the long-term effects, I longed for something that I knew I could do without pumping her full of chemicals again. I got on the phone with my friend whose husband is a nurse practitioner and asked them what they thought. She introduced me to a company called Young Living that day and I am incredibly grateful for it.
Crystal had me order Melrose Essential Oil and Rose ointment to treat her legs. I wish I had before and after pictures of Anna Kate’s legs, but I just wasn’t thinking. She would most likely kill me for posting those pictures online anyway, haha. I started applying the Melrose oil like a massage to her legs. I put equal parts Melrose to Grape Seed Oil (found in the cooking section of the health food store or here on Amazon). I let it sit on her legs for about 10-15 minutes and then applied the rose ointment. I kid you not, I could tell a huge difference just over night. We did this 3 times a day until it was gone. By day four, it was almost completely healed.
I am truly amazed by the power of the Melrose Essential Oil. Not just any Melrose, but Young Living’s Melrose Essential Oil. It is 100% therapeutic and is safe to ingest. This is not just your cheap essential oils found at whole foods and other health stores. It’s pure and unadulterated. Why did this work so well? Well, Melrose has antibacterial, anti fungal and antiseptic properties. Any situation where tissue needs to be regenerated, Melrose is your friend. It is great for the tiniest of cuts to major wounds. Just tonight I put it on my 5-year-old who cut her hand on a rose thorn. I reach for this now instead of Neosporin.
The Rose Ointment is a skin protector. It helps to seal in oils after they are used or to heal dry and cracked skin. My kids reach for this first thing when they have chapped lips.
So here is our substation list from over the counter to all natural.
I could not be happier with the results and I feel so much better knowing we are putting something that is actually beneficial on her skin. No more stress over what the negative long-term effects will be. Thank you Jesus for your plants. You knew what you were doing when you spoke them into existence and I am truly thankful.
Okay so y’all, I must say, I am not a doctor and I am just telling you what has worked for me. This post is just for information and not for treating or diagnosing an illness…I am not that good. I am just SO in LOVE with Essential Oils I wanted to share what they have done for me and for my family. Okay, enough legal mumbo jumbo.
