Right after Thanksgiving my family and I started to feel under the weather. It was not until the next week that we had a hunch of what we had as we lost our smell and taste. My younger boys got it back within a week. My older children, the husband and I, nothing. It was so frustrating as I love diffusing the essential oils around the holidays. I realize there were still benefits to diffusing even if I can’t smell it, but it still was so sad. So, I started looking on my essential oil community page as I remember sharing a post about “Smell Training.”
What is Smell Training?
This is where you retraining the brain with 4 specific scents while thinking of those smells.
I started with these oils in this order. Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus and then Rose.
I put a few drops of my doTERRA oils into separate glass jars, just enough to “smell” them.
Then I did little bunny sniffs, where you take little puffs of smell for 20 seconds. Remember to be thinking about that smell.
Then take 30 second break and start with the next oil.
Do this at least 2x per day.
It was so cool when I started to smell the lemon, then the clove, then the eucalyptus and finally the rose.
Now to work on my taste, as that did not come fully back. I could taste sweet, salty but that was it.
It was perfect timing as I just started a 30-day Program with several wholesale customers detoxing and cleansing to kick of January. I started to notice the first few days of the detox that my sinus area started draining and it felt less “cottonballish,” I know that is not really a word, but it is the only way I can think to describe it. A week into our cleasnse group my upline ended up hosting a call with a cross line doTERRA friend who is also an ER doctor. He not only recommended the cleanse that our group was doing but also had another great discovery. That one of our supplements was helping people get their smell and taste back, and it was only taking a week to two weeks for most. I was on it!! I had to try it and sure enough everyday my smell and taste improved even more. So, I had to share it and tell others.
Here is a video, if you ar more of a video watcher.
