Ministry of Oils


I have Ulcerative Colitis.  It's a Chronic Illness.  It's an Autoimmune Disease.  It's an Inflammatory Bowel Disease that can cause Cancer and some days, it's debilitating.  There is no known cause and no known cure.  But this isn't a "poor me" story.  I got over my diagnosis 15 years ago and instead of letting my disease determine how I live my life, I took control. 

I mean, as much control as I can.  Food used to be my enemy, but I've learned what to avoid.  Eating clean is essential.  Most things in moderation, are fine.  Unfortunately, my number one trigger for a flare-up is out of my control.  STRESS.  If you've got a life, you've got stress.  I thought I could control my stress, but every time a train passes in the middle of rush hour and I'm late, I can't help but feel a sharp pain in my abdomen.  

Life hands you lemons and it's how you deal with them, that determines the outcome.  I've also taken a natural approach to my healing process.  I'm prescribed some pretty strong medication that I have to take when I can't get control of my flare-up, but other than that, I believe in natural remedies.  Did you know Turmeric is an awesome anti-inflammatory?  I take a capsule everyday.


I also use essential oils to help treat my Colitis. Specifically, the pain pack by Ministry of Oils. Some of my symptoms include abdominal pain, nausea, and a whole slew of autoimmune side effects like joint pain, mouth sores, fatigue, etc. Essential oils have a ton of healing qualities, not to mention they smell amazing.

Ministry of Oils come in a glass vile and are 100% pure essential oil. There are unlimited possibilities on how to use the oils. Like a vaporizer. You can use it in a warmer or candle, electric diffuser, even a DIY mothball. You can also inhale the oil by steam, spray or even in a sauna. My favorite method of application is through topical application. Just like perfume, I dab just a tiny bit on my wrists and neck every morning to immediately start benefiting from the oil’s medicinal purposes.


Essential Oils are: Therapeutic Grade Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and fruit of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, therapeutic grade essential oils play a role in plant pollination and provide protection against predators and disease. Citrus plants such as lemons, limes, oranges, and tangerines, store their oil in the rind of the fruit and this is where the fruit gets its scent from. -Ministry of Oils

Now that you know all the health benefits from using essential oils and know that there are alternative methods of healing besides medication, I highly encourage you to try out your own custom pack of oils. They’re affordable and you can take them anywhere with you. I even diffuse my mint oil in a terracotta pot that hangs from my rear view mirror of my car. Everyone gets in and says, “ohmigod, your car smells amazing”. And I have the confidence that I’m healing my body while I’m driving.
