I've also been finding that it has other side benefits as well!!! That's the beauty of using essential oils -- they help the body in numerous ways -- physically as well as emotionally. Even if you take the oils for one reason, you may find that they have other health benefits for your body.
Nausea and Anxiety
Last month, I started to develop a canker sore. I looked up which oils would be best to use to get rid of a canker sore at Everything about Essential Oils (i.e., Frankincense, Lemon, Lemongrass, Melaleuca, Myrrh, On Guard), but didn`t get around to using any of these oils on the canker sore because it started healing almost immediately, likely as a result of the Slim & Sassy water that I was drinking!
I've read that essential oils can act as an expectorant, causing the lungs to expel phlegm and I really find that's happenning in my body. It happens shortly after I drink my Slim & Sassy water and even after I handle any of the oils (like after I put essential oils on my son's feet). It's fascinating because before I started the essential oils, I didn't even know that I was congested! I wonder if over time, my environmental allergies may subside as the mucous production in my lungs settle down with time.
