You see in 1998, after many many years of constant pain and debilitating sleep and cognitive issues, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
Western Medicine could only do so much
The medical world gave me pills that dulled my senses and made the pain more tolerable but did little to make life easier. I spent much of my life in bed. There was no such thing as a social life.
After my diagnosis I felt relieved that at least I knew what was wrong... but devastated that western medicine didn't have a cure.
Searching for an Answer
I took my search for help online. Many forms of alternative therapies beckoned but I zeroed in on the benefits offered by the herbal and aromatherapy worlds. I connected with aromatherapists and herbalists around the world asking for their advice and possible pathways towards health that I could take.
Ever grateful for the help I received
I am ever grateful for the help and guidance I received from these wonderfully generous and wise souls.
Finding the formulations that worked for me
With the information they gave me I was able to put together a number of essential oil and herbal concoctions to help me deal with
- the muscle and joint pain i was experiencing. (St John's Wort & Calendula Rub)
- a potion that helped me sleep (Deep Sleep Pulse Point Potion)
- essential oil blends to help my thinking become sharper. (Focus Pulse Point potion)
Slowly, steadily I improved to the point I was able to work again.
Moon haven was born
Moon Haven was born out of my appreciation of the natural world and my drive to share what I had learned.
So for me the study and use of essential oils is not a past time but something I cannot live without.
With wonderment and so much appreciation
