I’ve had quite a few requests for the recipes and instructions to make some of our amazingly effective essential oils blends…
as well as our famous Honey Spice Throat Drops…among other things.
If you’ve ever wanted to know how to use essential oils to start taking care of your family’s heath a bit more–naturally…
or even if you’re just a bit curious about the oils and what they can do for your world–I have a new place you’ll love. It’s called Gracious Rain Essentials. Not so totally new, perhaps. But if you’re a subscriber to Gracious Rain, you may not have ever noticed the tab that will take you there and we don’t want you to miss all the fun!
Oh, I do hope you’ll come visit. In fact, I’d like it to be one more place that feels friendly and warm…
kinda like home.
Laura gave us each a roller of Peaceful Child last Christmas–it’s incredible…and better than that–it works! Just a tad on the bottoms of a couple of little feet, and it’s calm, smooth sailing from there on. I love these oils!
Message me if you want more info.
Yes, yes. I’ll admit it. The hall cupboard was a mess. This is the top shelf and all the things you want to keep from the little people. Cleaners, bug spray, and umm…game pieces…apparently.
Second shelf was, sadly worse because with our newly acquired love of a more natural approach to healthcare, well…things on this shelf just got kinda stuffed in and neglected.
The first step was to gather and throw away everything that was old, outdated, expired or otherwise deadly. The bag was huge…trust me. I would have taken a picture of it but it sincerely embarrassed me. So, instead I snuck it out and dropped it in the trash. Next, I put all the old lotions and perfumes in a bucket and tried to figure out if I wanted to keep them or not. I looked up “perfume and lotion disposal” on Google and found that this calm, non-assuming little bucket holds “toxic, hazardous waste” and that I wasn’t suppose to dispose of it in the regular trash…it was that bad. Funny that it doesn’t say anything like that on the labels. It just tells me how to apply it to my FACE. yikes.
It was amazing how much space there was once all the crazy, nasty, old stuff was gone.
There was plenty of room for the cough drops, and light bulbs and nail polish and chap stick.
And best of all–I saved a nice, cozy spot for my oil box, smack-dab in the middle. Where we can all get at it.
Just as it should be.
Well, I got a few more Essential Oils and since the concocting of potions is quite addicting– I made a couple more. I was asked by a few people on Facebook for the recipe–so I’ll just show you how it’s done.
First I picked up a six pack of 4 ml roller bottles from My Oil Business.
Next I took my new oils–Eucalyptus, Cloves and Lemon–
and dripped the exact number of drops in the bottle.
Next I took the roller cap…
and snapped it in.
You may have to screw the black lid on top to snap the roller down all the way.
I always make labels for the caps so I can decide each day what scent I’m drawn too.
Makes the bedtime ritual soothing and smell so good, not to mention keeping everybody healthy. We love these oils!
More recipes coming soon. :}
People are steadily moving towards a more holistic approach to wellness–but when it came to essential oils–I was skeptical.
First of all, I expected them all to smell like cheap cologne, and secondly, who wants to walk around with oily fingers all the time? What a pleasant surprise to find the scent of Wild Orange, Peppermint, Grapefruit, Lavender and Citrus Bliss–just to name a few. And because they are Certified Therapeutic Grade Pure, each one absorbs into the skin immediately. Huge, huge plus.
With a basic kit and within 24 hours…our family had solved half a dozen little problems and ailments in our own household, and all, with just a drop or two of these doTERRA oils.
Sore throat, tummy ache, sniffles, cranky toddler, cold sore, test anxiety, throbbing knee, fussy baby, headache–all relieved in minutes…seconds even. Fast, easy and very relaxing.
Now then, with all the scary events having to do with Hurricane Sandy and all those poor folks on the east coast, the focus has really taken a shift at our place. We’ve given a lot of thought as to just how prepared–or not–we’d be in an emergency of our own. What I’ve discovered is that along with having a 72 hour kit for each member of the household, essential oils will be an incredible addition as well.
Here are the top 3 reasons to have doTERRA Essential Oils in your emergency preparedness kit~
1) To help with injuries and other adverse health issues.
2) To help with emotional upset, severe stress and trauma.
3) To help with hygiene, cleanliness and prevention of infection.
Sounds like a good idea–right? Of course it does!
So, I’m excited to let you–my readers–know about a wonderful FREE class on how to bring your Emergency Preparedness to a whole new level. If you’ll be anywhere near the Orem, Utah area next week, I hope you’ll join us Friday November 30, at AromaTools 1351 W. 800 N. in Orem, from 7 to 8:30 pm.
