Handling Panic Naturally
Five girls and one baby all crammed in the back of a strangerâ€™s mini-van.
It made perfect sense.
We needed a Lyft to our Young Living training, and it would only be a fifteen minute drive.
I jumped in the back thinking nothing of it. Iâ€™ve been a mom for 8 years. This was hardly my first time riding in a minivan. No big deal…
Then it happened.
It was 95 degrees that day in Utah, and the back of that van was both hot and stuffy.
I started to feel it coming on:
Quick, shallow breaths.
â€œCould we get more air back here, please?â€
â€œOh, yeahâ€¦this van doesnâ€™t have great air conditioning, especially in the back…â€
â€œCould we roll down a window or something?â€ Then I whispered to my friends, â€œIâ€™m starting to freak out a littleâ€¦I feel like I canâ€™t breatheâ€¦â€
The window rolled down. It got hotter.
â€œHere, take some Peppermint.â€
â€œI donâ€™t have car sickness. I just donâ€™t handle cramped spaces well. Then add in not breathing great and heatâ€¦â€
â€œJust take it. Put it on the back of your neck, then cup your hands and breathe it in.â€
Not exactly being in a position to argue, I did it assuming it wouldnâ€™t help but knowing it couldn’t hurt.
I’d never used Peppermint as a calming oil…
I couldn’t believe it.
Almost immediately my body cooled (I applied it where my brain stem is), and when I breathed in the left over oil from my cupped hand, everything in me started to relax.
I could breathe…
…and think straight…
…handling panic naturally.
It finally made sense why one of the docs at a Young Living workshop said Peppermint was the most complete oil. He said to always carry Peppermint and Lemon oil wherever you go.
All I know after that experience is: plane, train, or automobile, this girl will always have her Young Living Peppermint essential oil on her!
