I have been blogging and Facebooking about my experiences with Essential Oils. With the colder weather settling in, we're on the cusp of fending off pretty much every sort of cold and sickness that you can imagine.
See just below because I have an offer for $20 off the Thieves Oil + a Nebulizing Diffuser Just below valid only till Tomorrow at 5pm!
Have you heard the story behind Thieves Essential Oil
? If not, I encourage you to take a closer look.... Thieves is designed from a combination of oils that was originally used by a group of (you guessed it) thieves who pillaged graves during the Bubonic Plague, yet somehow never seemed to get sick themselves. This blend of essential oils protected them. Crazy right?
We will be using Thieves to help boost our family's immunity to get through these next few months. We also use Thieves for a variety of purposes here around the house, including but not limited to helping my son with his braces, which can be very uncomfortable they also give him canker sores from time to time, Thieves to the rescue! My husband now carries a small bottle with him for periodic headaches. I love adding to a cup of tea with honey too. I honestly wouldn't dare run out of Thieves, we all love it.
As it turns out, the best type of diffuser to use for this kind of oil is a Nebulizing Diffuser
(this is different from the vaporizing diffusers I use typically.) No water is used in here, hence nothing to spill. (With two boys and a dog, this is a big win for us)
This is the least expensive of the nebulizing diffusers (there are fancier ones, but this is the one that is coming home to me...:
"Young Living's Essential Oil Diffuser gives you the benefit of diffusing essential oils throughout your home or office. Diffusing is a simple and effective way to use essential oils. With Young Living's innovative air pump, oils are dispersed in a micro-fine vapor, allowing them to remain suspended in the air for extended periods of time. The diffuser disperses the oils without heating them so they retain their therapeutic benefits. When inhaled, the oils are easily absorbed through the lungs. Depending on the oil used, diffusing can cleanse the air of odor, calm overactive children, and support respiration.*
Because I really, really want you to try this for yourselves, for Today, Thursday the 29th and Friday October 30th only, I'll offer a discount on pairing the YL Essential Oil Diffiuser with a Bottle of Thieves Essential oil.
Buy both products together for $83 <-- That's a $20 savings off retail prices! As an added bonus, if you're local to me here in Franklin shipping is free. If I have to ship it to you, I'll send you a Paypal invoice. All orders must be placed and paid for by 5pm EST on Friday October 30th to qualify.

The starter kit is loaded with value already - it includes a spectacular array of oils as well as a diffuser to enjoy the oils aromatically.

We've had a lovely summer, but all good things must come to an end. The boys are back to school, and I am too! I love my job, but sitting in the front office as you can imagine, I'm exposed to pretty much everything that comes through the front door. I've got my Young Living Essential Oils to help me get through it, and I'm excited to share a few tips that have been working for our family.
The turn of seasons often leads to a nasty cold at my house. I was fighting one off last week, and the other day Jack woke with a junky cough. I oiled up his feet before school hoping to prevent it from progressing into a full blown sickness. So far so good, but I'll be using this the next few nights....
For kids you can add it in a base of carrier oil and apply to the bottom of their feet. Adults can add to a carrier oil in an empty vegetable capsule and ingest. The Lemon, Frankincense and Thieves are all included in the Starter Kit.
Be sure to head on over to my Facebook Page
where I've posted about the yummy Thieves Tea recipe!
Let's talk stomach bug. Gross right?
Where there are kids, there is often the stomach bug. Here's my advice: You can use Peppermint
to settle an uneasy stomach (even carsickness!) Add a drop to your palms and deeply inhale, you can also rub a drop directly on the stomach. DiGize
applied to the stomach does wonders for Jack and I. Peace and Calming II
can be used to alleviate the cramps that can accompany the stomach bug. As an added bonus, you'll be thrilled to find both Peppermint and DiGize included in your starter kit!
Fall pollen has been a beast lately. My older son is especially sensitive to ragweed. YUCK! To help him I've been diffusing Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint in his bedroom at night night. You can also give this in an empty gel capsule as the "allergy bomb" - 3 drops each Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint along with drops of your choice of carrier oil. As a bonus all three of these oils are included in your starter kit!

I honestly TRY to make healthy choices, but sadly there is one thing I'm really bad at. Like hopelessly bad about. Luckily my Young Living Essential Oils
are helping me to make healthier decisions for myself. You can see what I'm working on in this quick video:
I've been working hard to make water my new healthy habit. By the way, did you know that the ideal amount of water to drink is half your body weight in ounces each day.
Just remember that if you're going to spike your water that you need to put it in a GLASS water bottle. The oils an actually break down the plastic, and you clearly don't want to drink that!
I'd also like to remind you that this isn't carte blanche to go taking any oils internally! Young Living's Seed to Seal process
"guarantees a genuine, pure essential oil that has the highest therapeutic efficacy." With that in mind, please don't head right out and start ingesting any other oils that you may have in your collection as I can't speak for their safety.
You should only ingest oils that are labeled GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) or which have been certified as a Food Additive by the FDA. You can find this information on the Young Living Website for each individual product, on the label of the bottle or I'd be happy to look it up for you. I also have and LOVE an App for my iPhone called the Reference Guide for Essential Oils. It's a great resource for more details on any oils you have in your collection or are considering adding.
If you're already an oiler, what's your favorite?
I do love Grapefruit in my water, but I'm running low till my next order ships.
I'm off to go refill my bottle I'm not quite yet at half my body weight in ounces for the day!
As always I'm not a doctor, so I can't diagnose, treat, or prescribe you anything, all I can do is share with you what we've done and what works for our family. Have a great day, and go drink some WATER!

I happen to be notorious
for overdoing it in the sun. So I've just prepared ahead and mixed up a little after sun soothing spray
to have all ready. Lavender is an amazing skin soother, and so incredibly gentle. When we recently went to Florida I had a little dry skin upon my return, just where I missed the sunscreen on one shoulder. The Lavender Essential Oil
took the itch right out
and my skin cleared up quickly.
To be ready the next time, I have paired 1 oz Pure Aloe Vera Gel with 1 oz of water and 10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil in an amber spray bottle. This little concoction is staying cool in the fridge. It will be a perfect relief the next time that I've got a little bit too much sun.
It will also be a perfect relief if I (somehow) manage to stay sunburn free but feeling hot and tired from the sun. You can also use this healing spray for minor cuts and abrasions. Love my lavender!
