so, what ARE essential oils anyway?

WELCOME to my series on ESSENTIAL OILS and what they are, how they are extracted and why Young Living is the leader in this industry, including their process that guarantees the oils are the highest, purest quality on the market. Have you just simply wondered what in the world “ESSENTIAL OILS” are? well… Essential Oils are “volatile liquids created by aromatic plants that help the plants sustain it’s life.” {??}   Essential oils are literally the “life blood” of a plant. They are an ‘oil-soluble substance’ that can be extracted from a plant that helps that plant defend itself from insects and environmental conditions as well as fight against disease. The oils of a plant are over 50 times more powerful than the herb, and their molecules are small enough to enter the blood stream through the skin. Inhaling oils can cause them to penetrate the blood/brain barrier, which is causing some revolutionary research into autism and developmental delays, as well as helping many families naturally control a child with attention issues. Use of essential oils for healing dates back to Biblical times. There have been essential oils found in Egyptian tombs that still posses the same compounds as oils distilled properly today–meaning a PURE Essential Oil will not have an expiration date… but diluted or adulterated ones will. I wrote about why I prefer to learn about natural methods of healing to try before heading to a medical practitioner… but I must caution anyone who also wishes to do so to consult their doctor before trying alternatives to Rx, especially if you are currently taking an Rx for a specific...
Why buy a starter kit?

Why buy a starter kit?

I have had a few inquiries along the lines of: “Why would I buy the starter kit if I just want to try 3-4 oils?” So, I have to tell you WHY the Premium Starter Kit is the BEST deal for getting started with oils… because I can {almost} guaranatee you that once you see how well those 3-4 oils you want to try work, you’ll want to know what more can do!! *First you get a widely varied selection of oils that is actually valued at over $150 already… and they are the most commonly useful oils, hence the collection name of “Everyday Oils“! *Then! you also get access to wholesale prices for future purchases {{which is 24% less than retai}}… so that will save you money on replenishing the oils you love! *And then… the diffuser itself is over $100. It is a great tool to kill germs in the air if you feel a cold coming on or just for allergies… or if something starts smelling… hey, life happens! Now, to put all of that in perspective of purchasing only 3-4 oils to get started… {I am not factoring in tax or S/H as that will vary from order size to location; and some sizes vary. The kit comes with 5ml bottles while MOST refills are 15 ml… I’m not geting that nitty-gritty right now} You or a loved one has pain, arthritic or some other, in joints or your back, etc: The oils in the most common pain cream are {10 drops of each in a coconut oil base}: PanAway [a blend] {$43}, Valor [a blend]...

AAAhhh—CHOO!

Well, Hello SPRING!! Finally… Though I know there are those in cooler climates that still have yet to feel like it’s coming. Friends from the north are still posting about snow falling in April! Around here, we have a few people in our house that react to seasonal allergies with swelling, itching, watering faces… some it effects asthmatic reactions. It’s truly nothing to sneeze at-HAHA. Well, for several years we have combat these reactions with OTC meds. When we added local honey to our diet things did get a little better… but sometimes the pollen is literally overwhelming to our repsiration! This year we began using some resources from God’s creation: ESSENTIAL OILS! After just a few times of being amazed by the wonder of this trilogy of oils… I am no longer surprised… but I am still in AWE of our God and how His creation holds the remedy for so much of what sin has brought to our bodies. My husband ingests a single blended drop in a capsule with carrier oil or rubs a properly diluted blend behind his ears and across the bridge of his nose. When y babies get sneezy or runny-eyes and I rub these [properly diluted] oils over their necks and behind their ears, sometimes across their nasal cavity on their faces… within minutes their sneezing is gone and they are breathing normally again [and they smell yummy :)]. I do the same for me as my children… I have ingested the oils like my hubby, but applying topically is more potent –and I enjoy the immediate relief! the fragrance does not bother me. I have...

a new endeavor

In addition to learning to eat healthier, I have been trying to learn about HEALING healthier… …less pharmaceutical medicines and more natural remedies. In beginning this journey, I have become a believer in Essential Oils as a source for natural healing… and I have also become an Independent Distributor for Young Living Essential Oils.  I believe in the quality of the oils from this company and could not recommend any others. I have used a few singles and blends since receiving my starter kit about 2 weeks ago and have been AMAZED at how well they work. If you would like to know more, please feel free to contact me.   Personally, we have used the “Allergy Trio” of peppermint, lavender, and lemon to treat our spring allergies… and it seems to have worked as well as {claritin} or {allegra} or {benadryl} without any of the possible side-effects that come with using OTC meds. Many of the oils can be taken internally, but my preferred and the most potent for myself is to apply topically in certain places on my body. There are several blends and recipes for pain relief, and using the citrus oils are a wonderful way to help detox your body… though I would add that a diet change will also help in maintaining a cleaner body! I hope you will enjoy my journey of learning about a healthier body…and I would love to know that you stopped...
