So, I always hesitate to blog because I know that every post is likely going to involve essential oils, and I don't want to sound like a broken record with my constant 'Essential Oils are Greats.'
But, they are great, and their simple and accessible nature have made them a natural fit for our family on so many levels. Of course, I feel really great about the company's ethics and the financial opportunity it has offered us is something I truly feel our Creator has given us unexpectedly. All this on top of the fact that we've found huge relief from illness and ailments, stress and more than anything a deeper connection with creation and scripture. These tools are SO effective and helpful and such an intricate part of our history, even our Bible studies have been deepened. To read and smell at the same time? Our sense of smell is so powerful and if all we ever used them for was diffusing I'd STILL be as passionate about them. They de-odorize, lift the mood, calm, soothe and even kill airborne viruses, bacteria and break down toxins. How do I diffuse them? In a cool mist diffuser like the Aroma Lite. Or a diffuser that works through vibration and makes the oils linger for longer by breaking them down into even smaller molecules like the Aroma Ace. (this my online shop and you can shop for these products with me**) Essential Oils are great.
I wish e-smell technology was available so you could get a better idea...
That's not all, oh no. That's not all. We use them with our animals, with our garden, in our cleaning and our baking. We use them internally for fending off the flu and dealing with digestive issues and allergies, but probably even more regularly we use them topically.
In the last year a few folks with very severe cases of Poison Ivy have asked me for assistance and so I created a remedy that has offered immediate relief for everyone who has tried it. Poison Ivy is miserable, and somewhat unavoidable if you like being outside. But, there IS an antidote that will stop the itching and help the infected area heal quickly! I am going to divulge this secret recipe so that you might be better equipped for the season ahead. Essential Oils are great.
Essential Oils for Poison Ivy Relief
- 1 4oz Mason Jar
- Coconut oil
- 10 drops doTERRA Frankincense (the 'miracle oil')
- 10 drops doTERRA Lavender (the 'soothing oil')
- 10 drops doTERRA Melaleuca (the 'anti-germ oil')
Simply fill the jar with coconut oil, add in the essential oils and mix until combined. You can also add all ingredients to a blender and whip until you have a nice creamy consistency--this only works when coconut oil is solid and it will melt to liquid as soon as it's warm enough. Apply to the infected area as frequently as needed! Essential Oils are great.
**I'm so grateful if you shop with me, but I'm also hopeful you'll consider membership so you can take advantage of getting the oils at wholesale, and even get them free. I'm always offering a special or two for new members, so ask me if you're interested! Free book Anyone? As Wellness Advocate #330704 I'm excited to share the very real opportunity to add income to those interested, and I'm almost as excited about the financial relief people are finding as I am about the oils themselves! I'm also coining the phrase 'community marketing' because 'network marketing' has some stigma that even I have to continue to get over, but all I've found in sharing is an opportunity to connect more with people and create an even larger community of friends that all just happen to love oils. I'm good with that. Really good, actually. Essential Oils are great.
