I started drinking coffee (mocha lattes) for the first time in my life because I was dealing with a lot of fatigue. At first it helped a lot, but after a few weeks, I needed more and more, and never felt the energy boost that I initially had when I first started drinking it.
I knew the caffeine consumption had been a mistake--I was getting headaches every time I went more than 24 hours or so without it. I dreaded quitting, but the cost was killing me, and it didn't even help me stay awake anymore. Since ibuprofen never helped with the pain of a caffeine headache, I knew I'd have to wean off gradually over weeks, which I wasn't thrilled about.
Then I started taking Young Living oils, and one day when I couldn't get coffee and felt a caffeine headache coming on, I decided to try Lavender. I keep a little keychain holder with 8 essential oils in it, so when the Lavender worked on my headache fairly quickly the first time, I decided to keep using it, and see if I could go cold-turkey on the lattes.
I didn't even have to use the Lavender very often, and it was very effective. It was best when I used it immediately, as soon as I felt the pain coming on. I'd put it on my forehead, behind my ears, and on the nape of my neck. It worked great! 48 hours later, my caffeine addiction was pretty much broken.
Now I have a latte on a rare occasion, when I need a boost, instead of using it like a drug. It's not healthy anyway, and it's outrageous to pay $5 for coffee...and now I can use that money for more oils! And people say they're expensive. Ha. I've saved money by not having to buy new spray cleaners, pain medication, etc.
