How to Protect your Family from Colds and Flu with a little help from Essential Oils

By | February 18th, 2018|Categories: Health issues|Tags: , , , |

Coughs and Sneezes spread diseases

Do you have any ‘go to’ techniques when your throat feels sore or you are starting with a cold or flue?

Maybe you start drinking many cups of tea when you first feel that tickle.

Maybe you drink hot water with lemon and honey. One of my favourites, with some fresh ginger. Or you may have some favourite herbs.

Well I have another thing you might want to add to your approach.

Essential oils are amazing when it comes to supporting immunity against colds and flu.

Winter is a prime time for viruses. Fortunately essential oils offer us powerful ways to stay healthy.

There are many essential oils that can combat microbes and support health at the same time, but you don’t need a huge collection. There are five powerhouse oils that you can make so many blends with.

TREE TREE

LAVENDER

EUCALYPTUS

FRANKINCENSE

SWEET ORANGE

You can diffuse Frankincense and Lavender throughout the day to help destroy airborne microbes, Your house will be healthier and will smell amazing.

Or make a simple inhaler with Eucalyptus and Sweet Orange

Another of my favourite blends I call:

NO ONE GETS SICK IN THIS HOUSE.

5 drops Eucalyptus

5 drops Tea Tree.

6 drops sweet orange.

This blend is great for diffusing throughout the day.

In the evening I switch to:

EVERYONE GETS A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP.

6 drops Lavender

8 drops Frankincense

4 drops sweet orange.

For children reduce the oil count. Their systems are more sensitive and they are smaller than adults.

So breathe deep and enjoy the winter.

I have another suggestion that you might want to add to your sore throat approach,

It’s a lotion you can apply to your neck, chest and throat. It’s made with essential oils that are good at calming inflammation and reducing infections: Hemlock,Tea Tree, Opopanax and Black Pepper.

1 o.z. (28gr.) unscented lotion

6 drops of Hemlock ( Tsuga canadensis)

4 drops Tea Tree

3 drops Opopanax

2 drops Black Pepper.

Make this blend in a 1oz. (30ml) glass jar. Put the lotion into the jar, then add the essential oils. Stir gently with the handle of a stainless steel spoon.

Rub the lotion into your throat and back of neck, when you have a cough , or when your throat feels sore, itchy and tickly. Apply as needed several times a day.

( Recipe courtesy of Andrea Butje. The Heart of Aromatherapy.)

Have a healthy winter!

Let me know any other hints and tips you may have.

Until the next time.

Make your Muscles and Tendons DANCE

By | January 18th, 2018|Categories: Essential Oils, Health issues, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Muscles and Joints Need Some love.

Pain makes us uncomfortable in our bodies and emotionally unhappy—no fun! It can make simply going about our day unpleasant, and stops us from getting things done.

Tendonitis is a form of inflammation  in the tendons, which are the chord-like parts of the body that connect muscles to bones. Usually caused by repetitive movements (like exercise or sitting in the same position for many hours), injuries or built-up inflammation over time, tendonitis can cause a lot of pain.

People over 40 years old tend to get tendonitis more than younger people, but really anyone can development symptoms depending on how damaged versus elastic tendons become.

It’s true that as we age, our ligaments, bones and tendons slowly weaken with everyday wear and tear, so we’re more likely to experience things like muscle and joint pain.

Comes down to experiencing inflamed tendons that are more susceptible to stress, strain, movement and tears. Despite what most people assume, this can affect people of all ages, sizes and physical activity levels, not just serious athletes or the elderly.

 

Signs indicating that you might have tendonitis include:

  • feeling pains and aches around a specific ligament, joint or muscle

  • swelling and tenderness

  • increased pain when moving or exercising

  • stiffness

  • trouble sleeping due to pain.

  • Common Areas Affected for Tendonitis.

Knees

Shoulders

Heels

Elbows

Wrists

Hips

Over Christmas I fell and sprained my wrist and the initial pain was agonising.

I grabbed my Panaway Essential Oil and the relief was amazing

 

This oil is hands down the most amazing oil to support healthy muscles and joints.

Makes most amazing massage oil.

Post-exercise pain? Sit too long at the computer? Kids have growing pains? This is the oil for you.

PanAway essential oil blend contains the following essential oils:

  • Helichrysum

  • Wintergreen

  • Clove

  • Peppermint

PanAway is extremely soothing and comforting, the perfect oil when you need a deep, relaxing massage. Simply dilute 1:5 with carrier oil, and massage away

PanAway is amazing for soothing emotional pain, too!

In Releasing Emotional Patterns With Essential Oils,  

I learned that PanAway can be used to help you cope with two negative emotions:

  • Exhaustion

  • Fear of emotions

For exhaustion, apply two drops of PanAway with carrier oil to the lower spine.

For fear of emotions, apply to the top of the legs, right below the hips.

You can also diffuse PanAway to help you overcome these emotional hurdles.

Did you know PanAway is one of the most valuable oils in the Premium Starter Kit?  http://bit.ly/2k719F3

Muscle aches can be caused by increased physical activity, stress, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration and hormonal changes.

Almost everybody has likely experienced discomfort in his or her muscles at some point.

Because almost every part of the body has muscle tissue, this type of pain can be felt practically anywhere.

Using essential oils for muscle aches is the most effective natural remedy for fast relief.

 Mix peppermint oil,  cypress oil  together with coconut oil and rubbing them on the sore muscle is highly effective.

Put 3 drops of peppermint, 3 drops of cypress and 1 tsp of coconut oil on the area then cover with hot compress for 1 minute.

 Here’s another massage recipe

Happy Muscles Massage Oil

  • 1 oz (30 ml) jojoba

  • 8 drops Siberian Fir

  • 4 drops Black Spruce

  • 3 drops German Chamomile

  • 3 drops Juniper

Make the blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) bottle.

Combine all your ingredients, close the bottle, and shake gently.

Massage sore muscles and joints as often as you like.

All of the oils in this blend are helpful for pain relief in sore muscles and joints.

Black Spruce is also useful for getting your energy flowing and reducing fatigue.

Juniper is such a joint-friendly oil. ‘The Art of Aromatherapy and Easy to Use Guide for Essential Oils’ is full of recipes.

The essential oils in this blend are also supportive of respiratory health, so if your aches and pains have shown up along with a cold or flu, you will really like the way this blend supports you on multiple levels.

Now give yourself a massage and feel better! 

Until the next time.

If you love lip balms learning a great lip balm recipe can be a game changer.

  1. Here’s my basic formula

  • I ordered a pack of 25 empty lip balm tubes (http://amzn.to/2ymPXdo )

  • 6 tablespoons Organic coconut oil or Shea butter.
  • 2 tablespoons Beeswax granules http://amzn.to/2Amk3zu

  • 30 Drops of our favourite essential oil.

  • Here’s where I buy mine from: http://bit.ly/2k719F3

    1. Simple method.

You’ll need only 10 minutes, honestly!

Melt coconut oils in a double boiler or pan with a Pyrex dish inside over a medium heat, stirring frequently until all is melted. Quarter fill the pan with simmering water.

Add your favourite essential oils.

You can also add vitamin E oil.

Carefully and slowly pour a small amount into each tube. NB Mixture will harden rapidly.

Let it cool for about and hour then use as normal.

Any extra balm left use on your feet and elbows.

Leave the tubes lying around the house.

How Essential Oils Changed my Skincare Routine forever.

By | October 28th, 2017|Categories: Recipes with oils|Tags: , , , , , , |

How Essential Oils Changed my Skin Routine. 

Hello again! Now the searing heat of summer has gone and the slightly cooler autumn days and evening are with us I thought I would share some of my all natural facial lotions and potions that I make using essential oils.

Cold weather can bring misery with it especially as we age. 

 It is so easy to develop dry or cracked skin,

Learn to give your skin the love and nourishment craving by using natural skin care with Baobab oil.

DRY SKIN SALVE USING BAOBAB OIL

This simple but powerful dry skin recipe contains a blend of natural ingredients that not only relieve dry cracked skin, but also contains an energising blend of orange and ginger oils to soothe minor aches and pains.

A QUICK NOTE ABOUT OIL: BAOBAB

I chose to include this oil in my natural dry skin salve recipe for several reasons. Not only is this versatile African carrier oil famed for its emollient and moisturising skin care properties, but it’s also absorbed quickly by skin so there is no greasy after feel. Additionally, the presence of Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids give baobab oil some beneficial anti-inflammatory properties and help to promote soft healthy skin.

INGREDIENTS:

1 oz.  Baobab 
.
5 oz. Shea nut oil
.5 oz.
  Beeswax
drops 5-fold orange essential oil
6 drops fresh ginger essential oil
1-2 drops 
vitamin E oiloptional

INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP #1:

Weigh out the beeswax, Shea nut oil and Baobab oil. 

Combine in a double boiler or microwave in a Pyrex style bowl. 

Gently heat untill of the beeswax has melted. ( Don’t use full heat.)

STEP #2:

Remove from heat then, using a dropper add the vitamin E oil along with the orange and ginger essential oils. 

Stir well to combine, then pour into a 2 oz. amber or cobalt jar.

Once the salve hardens it’s ready to use. 

Simply apply to hands, feet and other areas of dry skin on your body. 

You can also apply this salve to chapped lips.

Essential Oil Lip Balm Recipe

There is much experimentation that you can do by mixing and blending until you find your favourite essential oil recipe for lips, I’ll share my favourite with you now so you can have a base from which to get started.

Lavender-Mint Lip Balm


Melt the carrier oils in a pan whilst carefully stirring.

tablespoons Beeswax


tablespoons Coconut Oil


tablespoons Shea Butter

Remove from heat and add:


15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil


15 drops Lavender Essential Oil

After stirring in oils, pour into lip balm containers or tins. Let cool.

Purchase your lip balm containers here.

Using the best essential oils for lips allows your body to make the most of the way your lips look, feel, and even taste.

 Best Essential Oil for Lip Balm

I choose Peppermint oil s it is one of the best oils for lips because of its cooling and soothing properties. 

It promotes healing, helps with fresh breath and helps fight against cold sores. 

 Peppermint oil also works to increase circulation. It may even make your lips look a little plumper and luscious.!!!!

Frankincense Wrinkle-reducing Face cream

Ingredients

1/4 cup Shea Butter
1/4 cup 
Organic coconut Oil
8-10 drops 
Frankincense Essential Oil
5-7 drops 
Lavender Essential Oil

Using a double boiler, melt shea butter and coconut oil together until liquid. Remove from heat and let cool for about 30 minutes.

Drop in and stir Frankincense and Lavender essential oils.

Start here: Wait for mix to partially solidify (you can even put it in the freezer for up to 20 minutes to speed the process). 

Then whip with your hand mixer until you achieve a butter-like consistency.

Store in a 4 oz mason style jar 

This should keep for 6-12 months in your bathroom cupboard.

You could also add in Vitamin E oil

DIY After Shave/Oil for Dry Skin

This oil mix is great for dry skin to help repair the skin, or used instead of aftershave. 

 8-10 Drops Frankincense Essential Oil
8-10 Drops Bergamot Essential Oil
4 ml Jojoba Oil

You will need: an empty 5ml oil bottle.

Add first 8-10 drops of each Frankincense and Bergamot into an empty 5ml essential oil bottle. 

Then fill up with Jojoba oil.

Use daily, after shaving or instead of moisturising lotion. 

This mix is great especially in the mornings for the oil’s uplifting properties.

Bergamot has the fresh , sweet, citrus scent that is familiar to many as the flavouring in Earl Grey Tea.

 It is uplifting and relaxing.

Good for building confidence and enhancing your mood.

Tip: you can reuse an empty bottle of Frankincense or Bergamot or other empty essential oils bottle that will mix well with these two oils.

As you will see once you have purchased your basic carrier oils they are used for many natural potions and lotions for skin care and are quick and easy to produce. It makes them economical to produce and of course they are chemical free.

Enjoy experimenting and do let me know your favourite recipes.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil. What do YOU know about this amazing plant and what it can do for you???

By | August 13th, 2017|Categories: Essential Oils, Eucalyptus|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Eucalyptus Essential Oil.

What do you know about this amazing plant?

Eucalyptus plant is also know as Tasmanian Blue gum and is native to Australia. It is the main food source for the koala bear. It has tremendous nutritional value for wild life. The essential oil is extracted from the leaves.

It’s name is derived from Greek, eucalyptos, meaning well covered. The flower buds are covered with a membrane which is thrown off as the flower expands.

There are over 700 varieties of this plant.

This evergreen plant is able to survive the very common wild fire of Australia. It has dormant shoots inside the tree and roots which germinate only under the trigger of heat from the flames. The plant can live for up to 250 years.

A BIT of Folklore.

An early settler had his thumb severed by an axe. His father, who knew about Aboriginal folk medicine, advised that he apply a bandage of tightly bound eucalyptus leaves around the cut after it was sutured.

The Aborigines used eucalyptus, or “kino” as they referred to it, to heal most wounds they encountered. Later, when a surgeon saw the wound, he remarked how amazed he was because the thumb healed so quickly and without any trace of infection.

Reports like this spread throughout Australia. A pharmacist called Joseph Bosisto began playing with the idea of commercially producing eucalyptus in 1852. Soon after the first Eucalyptus radiata was distilled in Melbourne.


  1. Eucalyptus Research and Studies.

There is some exciting eucalyptus oil research.

Eucalyptus oil benefits are due to it’s ability to stimulate immunity, provide antioxidant protection and improve respiratory circulation.

There are over 1676 studies showing in Pub.Med alone, with some amazing results.

Research is being done on drug resistant bacterial infections like tuberculosis, lowering high blood pressure, reducing inflammation and pain, to killing leukaemia cells, HIV/AIDS

Many of the studies refer to it’s main component cineole. Eucalyptus has the highest know cineole levels of any plant up to (80-95%)

Today, Eucalyptus oils have a wide range of uses and health benefits.

      1. Cold and Flu.

Eucalyptus works as an expectorant and helps clear your body of toxins.

One of the most effective ways to use eucalyptus for colds is to put several drops in your diffuser, especially before going to sleep. This way you have the benefits all night. Add a few drops of Peppermint oil and you’ll have a great night’s sleep.

      1. Respiratory Problems

Today, Eucalyptus is used for another of it’s medicinal properites, conditions like asthma, bronchitis, congestion and sore throat. It he and allows more oxygen into the lungs.lps dilate the blood vessels.

I can personally testify that my husband has found tremendous relief from asthma and hay fever. For many years he had cortisone injections, which are know for side effects. This year I used a natural product as a roll on called Breathe Again. It only uses a selection essential oils including eucalyptus and peppermint. First year ever FREE of the debilitating conditions plus no harmful chemicals or inhalers.

It is also recommended to gargle with this oil to clear a sore throat.

      1. Wound Treatment.

Eucalyptus has antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that are effective at treating, cuts, sores wounds, bites and stings. It helps keep the effective area free from infection and acts as a pain reliever, soothes the skin and helps with blood clotting.

It kills the germs as they enter the wound.

When the oil is exposed to the atmosphere it forms a gas called ozone which is a powerful antiseptic.

Don’t forget to use Eucalyptus oil on your pets.

  • Remember to keep away from eyes and open wounds.

      1. Muscular Aches and Pains

Do you suffer from muscular aches and pains due to a variety of conditions?

Try rubbing Eucalyptus oil onto the area. It will help reduce the pain associated with the injury by reducing inflammation.

It’s great if you have overdone your workout!

      1. Hair Nourishment and Head Lice.

It is as natural pesticide and a perfect head lice treatment without chemicals or toxins. The oil can be combed through the skin. Using prescribed treatments can lead to hair loss and toxic side effects.

A few drops of Eucalyptus oil with some coconut oils give your hair a pick-me- up and wards of itchy scalp and dandruff.

      1. Helping Diabetic Symptoms.

Eucalyptus oil can remove and control the levels of glucose in your blood. This is because of the effect if has on the diameter of the blood vessels.

A great way to use the oil is in your diffuser or good results can be obtained from massage therapy.

      1. Mental Focus and Reduction of Exhaustion

In today’s world there are many mental conditions that can affect us stress, overwhelm, overactive mind,

The chemical properties in the oil cause it to be a vasodilator.

It expands the blood vessels in the body by allowing the muscles them to relax.

More blood in your brain means it can process information more rapidly.

There are now experiments in schools to help children focus more on their studies.

Some studies show increases in their performance but there still remains much more research to be done.

      1. Natural Home Remedies

  • Household Cleaner

It gives a fresh fragrance to your home and adds anti-microbial properties

Put a few drops of oil in your vacuum clean, clothes dryer, laundry, soap, toilet cleaner,

The list is endless.

  • Stain and Spot Remover

Like Lemon essential oil, eucalyptus oil is very effective at removing stains and spots on carpets, clothes,

Always test on a hidden piece of fabric first. You don’t want a bad reaction with some synthetic chemical in the fabric s!!!!

  • Hand cleaner.

Simply mix with some sea salt, epsom salt and watch the grease and dirt disappear

  • Odour remover

Simply mix with Lemon oil or Tea Tree oil for an anti odour spray.

Use on smelly shoes, stinky dog baskets etc.

As you can see the benefits of Eucalyptus oil are awesome.

By | July 31st, 2017|Categories: Essential Oils, Lavender|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Lavender is in your starter kit.

 

10 Essential Oils.

Everything you Need to Know

Lavender – No 1

This article is part one of a ten part series on the 10 Must have essential oils, all packed with useful information. The articles explain how we can use them every single day to have better health and improve our lives. I am so passionate about Essential Oils. The oils I’m talking about are Young Living 100% therapeutic grade essential oils.

I have learned a lot through using the oils myself over the years but I needed qualified and experienced support team behind me before I could offer them to other people.

Before I begin here is the DISCLAIMER

I am not trying to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease’

In this first article I’m writing about Lavender Essential Oil and all it’s incredible benefits.

Lavender is one of the 10 must have essential oils. I call it my Swiss Army Knife of Oils

There are hundreds of species around the world but French Lavender from Provence is probably the most famous.

What does it’s name mean??? It come from Latin,lavare, which means to WASH. It was one of the favourites of the Romans used in their lavish bathing routines.

So what does it do? And what can it be used for?

One of the most useful and versatile of all essential oils. It is pretty amazing oil in what it can do. Lavender is very versatile and can be used for almost anything a general cure all.

Don’t know what to use it for?? Then use It. You will have a good chance that it will work.

  • It is a known sedative and frequently used at night to help in restful sleep.

  • It has a sedative and calming action on the heart.

  • Useful with palpitations, anxiety and stress.

  • Can help to lower #blood pressure.

  • It is a great oil to use in a diffuser and breath in the molecules the lungs.

  • Lavender is generally known for it’s calming, toning and balancing effects.

  • It stimulates serotonin in the body.

  • Lavender generally helps with insomnia but it doesn’t work for everyone. If it doesn’t do the job for you then there is another oil to use.** Ask me!

BURNS

  • Lavender is amazing in the treatment of burns. Takes pain away.

  • Help alleviate BRUISES

  • Reduces scar tissue.

  • A Cistrant ( wound healing)

  • Cell regeneration.

  • Helps knit wounds together.

  • Can be used on cracked skin.

  • Useful with most skin issues.

HEADACHES

  • Works well with Migraine and headaches.

  • It is pain relieving.

  • Helps reduce inflammation.

  • Eases spasms.

  • That is why it is so incredible for headaches and can be used for migraines.

A must oil to use with children.

  • Effective with colic

  • Ear aches. A word of warning. Never, ever put oil inside the ears. Use on the bone at the back of the back of the ears Helps balance and calm children down.

LAVENDER is a great Universal oil.

MASSAGE

Lavender oil has been used down the centuries as a massage oil.

One only has to think about Romans and their lavish baths.

  • Put 7 drops on the spine and add a carrier oil.

  • Nothing more calming and relaxing than a back massage at the end of a day.

  • Great oil for elderly people.

BALANCING AND CALMING

  • Helps balance and calm emotions.

  • Acts as a mood enhancer.

  • May help with depression.

RESPIRATORY

  • Lavender is fantastic with the respiratory system.

  • Great for lungs and bronchials.

  • Restores and repairs damage deep in the lungs.

  • Disinfecting

  • Decongestion

  • Boosting immune system

Lavender is one of the best oils to diffuse into the air and everyone in the room can ingest it. I diffuse this through out the winter evenings.

It can even be used as a deodorant together with cypress and lemongrass.

I personally diffuse it in the car to help keep calm and reduce driving stress along with peppermint for concentration. ** Car diffusers are available from Amazon.

SEED TO SEAL

So why do I use and recommend Young Living Essential Oils?.

No 1 Reason is that they are guaranteed 100% pure from Seed to Seal. This means avoiding

  • Herbicides

  • Pesticides,

  • Larvicides

  • Sewage Sludge

We are all aware of Farmers spraying with pesticides, insecticides. These chemicals remain in the crops and therefore can affect our bodies when we inhale them or use them topically.

The phytochemiclas which are 70-100% more powerful in the oils. These are beneficial and have good healing properties that we have come to love. These are increased through the distillation process.

The toxic chemicals that are sprayed on plants cannot be removed. They remain in the plants and in the essential oils.

The phytochemicals that are essential to our health become more available when the plants go through the distillation process. They are 70-100 times times more concentrated in the oils, BUT so are any pesticides, herbicides, etc. So I hope you can see the importance of our Seed to Seal Guarantee

Preserve the Environment and Eco -System.

When you choose Young Living Essential Oils you are choosing to protect our land, water, soil, air.

No Animal testing.
