Getting It Down to Size

It’s a new year and many people make resolutions. I’m normally not one of them, but this year I am. Resolution: to have less pain by being stronger in health. If you know some of my journey, it’s not some abstract thing and this post isn’t either. Let me explain.

Weak core strength lead to overworked back muscles which lead to painful right hip muscles. Add a bad movement and, BAM: inflammation so bad I was having trouble walking. Enter my newest blend!

This blend got me through the Christmas holidays!

The main oil is Lemongrass. It contains limonene, which is a compound that has been shown to reduce inflammation. The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy also list it’s benefits as: gastrointestinal disorders, exhaustion, acne, and insect repellent. Plus, it smells great.

I then chose Rosemary essential oil as it’s known as a pain reliever. Preliminary studies support its pain relief benefits and suggest that it may be more effective than acetaminophen.

Next was lovely lavender. Lavender essential oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. (It also helps heal minor burns,  scratches and bug bites.)

Last, but definitely not least is Frankincense essential oil. Since the benefits of this incredible oil is so long, I’m including this link, but the main benefit is regulation of healthy inflammation responses.

I hope this blend will help you as much as it helped me. Wishing you all a beautiful start to a new year!

Fresh and Clean Even the Morning After

I was in pain. No matter what I did, my mouth hurt. To be specific, the gums in the upper left of my mouth. The dentist recommended I use that super strong antiseptic mouthwash. You know the one, the one that grays you teeth if you even look at coffee. And since I can’t whiten my teeth due to my gums, I wanted to stay faaaaar away from that antiseptic mouthwash!

What I did instead was make my own mouthwash with Essential Oils, baking soda and an old marmalade jar. It’s so good that when I rinse my mouth before bed, my teeth aren’t fuzzy the next morning!

Here’s the recipe:

Directions: put a pinch of baking soda in a 250 gram jar. Drop the Essential Oils into the baking soda (to aid in dispersion. Then fill with distilled water. Shake before use and store in the refrigerator. (Lasts about 3 weeks in the fridge.)

If you have any questions, just let me know. Happy swishing!

Pain Bomb-My High Heels Did Me In

I went out to a Girls’ Night Out a few nights ago. I wanted to get dressed up so I put my high-heels on. The ones I never wear. The next morning my back was not pleased.

A few days later, a friend mentioned this wonderful blend: the Pain Bomb (also known as the Morphine Bomb). So I tried it. Wonderful!!

Here’s my recipe. I’ve seen blends with double the drops I’ve used, but Essential Oils are plants based medicine and I subscribe to the “less is more” way of thinking.

Got strong pain? Blend up a Pain Bomb roller. You can thank me later 🙄.

Knowledge

The Learning Continues

Just a quick note. I’ve been learning more about Essential Oils and reconnecting with the concept of holistic living. The learning part is going well, but I’m realising how toxic a world we’ve created. The holistic living part…er…um…got the concept down. The doing is where I’m struggling.

I’ll leave you with a quote from an EBook I’m reading. Come with me on the Other Path.

Beauty, DYI

Healthy Face, Health You

My journey to getting healthy thru DYI with Essential Oils goes another step. I’ve actually been using this facial toner for a few months, but didn’t post the recipe because I didn’t believe something so easy and inexpensive could work. I’m happy so say, my worries were unfounded. This Toner cleans beautifully and is gentle on my skin. Add that it fights wrinkles and is easy to make – it’s a win-win. Happy DYI-ing!

Mama, FLOOM me please

Yesterday was the first day of school for my son. As the prior week progressed, his sniffles got worse & by Friday he had a cough. What’s a Mama to do? Why FLOOM of course!

FLOOM is an acronym for the oils in the wonderful blend that supports your immune system:

  • Frankincense
  • Lemon
  • OnGuard
  • Oregano
  • Melaleuka (Tea Tree Oil)

Below is the recipe for adults. For children, use 1+2+2+1+1 drops.

Our whole family started FLOOMing on Friday evening by rubbing the blend on the bottoms of our feet morning & evening. By the first day of school, my son was still a little tired, but sniffle free! Since I try not to use Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuka) for more than 3 days in a row, we’re taking a break, but will FLOOM again at the end of the week.

Next time you feel something coming on, get an immune system boost and FLOOM!
