I’m not a stranger to the world of essential oils, and as I navigate this journey with Trigeminal Neuralgia, I’ve decided to add these aromatic elixirs to my daily regimen. It’s my way of being proactive in staying as healthy as possible, especially at the cellular level. After some diligent research and soul-searching, I’ve chosen a selection of essential oils to weave into my daily life: Frankincense, Stress Away, Valor, Idaho Balsam Fir, Peppermint, and Peace and Calming.
Today was much like yesterday on the Trigeminal Neuralgia front. As the afternoon sun stretched its warm fingers across my world, I felt the familiar sensations of phantom pains. An earache whispered its presence, and a gentle headache settled in for a visit. It’s moments like these when I turn to my oils, take a few Alieve, and ensure I don’t forget my prescribed nerve pain medicine. I’ve come to understand that stress is a contributing factor to these unwelcome intrusions, and this afternoon delivered more stress than I would have liked. It’s a reminder that I hold more stress in my body than I’ve realized in the past.
In the midst of these challenging times, I find solace in the journey I’ve been on these past few years to find peace. It’s led me to a deeper love for all things nature. There’s something profound in the quietude of the forest, in the gentle streams flowing over smooth rocks, and it doesn’t end there. The serenity of a starlit sky, the embrace of a gentle breeze, the vibrant colors of a sunset – all of these elements are reminders of the world’s enduring beauty.
In moments like these, I’ll lean even deeper into the things I love, drawing strength from the gentle caress of nature and the comforting aroma of essential oils. It’s my way of forging ahead, aware that even in the face of adversity, there’s a wellspring of beauty and solace to be found in this world.
As the sun sets on another day, I look forward to whatever tomorrow brings, knowing that every day is a gift, and every moment is an opportunity to find peace and healing.
