Men’s Cologne

I made Jesse some new cologne today using my essential oils. Here’s the recipe:

I found this recipe on the Young Living blog, as a suggestion for Hong Kuai. hong-kuaiWhen I order oils, I always want to have at least two uses for the oil.
Ainsley ended up scanning for this oil, and as I was researching it to find more ways to use it, I found cologne.  Hong Kuai can be used as an emotional tool to boost confidence. Ylang ylang balances the male and female energy in the body and Idaho Blue Spruce can help boost testosterone in men. Not a bad trio to use as a cologne!

Killing Head Bugs With Essential Oils

You know that dreaded feeling; the moment you realize your child has a head full of bugs. Ahhhh! I secretly wished that we would be able to dodge that bullet as a family, like entirely. I mean, I wash my kids’ hair for goodness sake! How did this happen? killing lice with essential oils
Well, regardless of how clean we think we scrub their heads, it turns out bugs like a clean head. Go figure. This is what I found crawling through my four year old’s head. I could see it as I sat next to him eating my dinner. Nice right? In traditional mamma monkey fashion, I instinctively picked it off his head and started combing for more. When I found the second and third one, I started freaking out which led to a swift buzz cut.12485_10154347645530273_6653311468769641878_n
After we removed all of the live adults, I felt a bit better, but then it dawned on me that they lay eggs. Oh geeze! I didn’t have the first clue how microscopic those little devils could be, or how long it would take to kill them. (Newbie here.) As my husband turned to Facebook for advice, I turned to my Essential Oils Desk Reference; the encyclopedia of oils. Thankfully, there is a protocol and I had most of the oils listed for bugs. That’s when I started feeling some relief. I didn’t have to run to the store and buy a special shampoo, I already had an arsenal on my counter-top. AND, I didn’t have to worry that I was soaking my four year old’s brain with hazardous pesticides.

“The most common remedy for lice is lindane, (gamma benzene hexachloride), a highly toxic polychlorinated chemical that is structurally very similar to hazardous banned pesticides such as DDT and chlordane. It is so dangerous that Dr. Gary Sansfacon, head of Quebec Poison Control in Canada has requested that lindane be banned.”


What I appreciated about our Facebook community was that no one suggested we use the bug shampoo. Either they understand my level of crunchiness, or they understand the caution when using pesticides. Either way, they all had some really helpful solutions that were all natural and easy. Things like:

  • Running the stuffed animals through a hot dryer cycle
  • Put all of the bedding and pillows in a trash bag. Squeeze the air out and tie it tight. Leave this for a few days to suffocate the vermin.
  • Mayonnaise or Coconut Oil all over the head will suffocate them
  • Tea tree shampoo
  • Vacuuming the car and the cloth seats
  • Boiling all of the hair brushes and combs
  • Treating all members if the family (infested or not)
  • And the best- BUZZ CUTS

That flower pot sitting on the mattress is my diffuser from Young Living. It pumps essential oils and water into the air and can cover up to 1000 square feet.

Basically, I did all of these things, with the addition of essential oils. I vacuumed the car and then sprayed the cloth seats with oils. I also coated my sons’ heads with coconut oil and essential oils for the following 5 days. I ran my diffuser, (essential oils and water) in their bedroom to disinfect the mattresses. Only one son was infested, but they share a room so I treated both boys.

So which oils did I use? The Essential Oils Desk Reference recommends:

  • Melaleuca Alternifolia- otherwise known as tea tree oil. I didn’t have this single oil, but I did happen to have Melaleuca in a blend called Melrose.  3378

Melrose also contains rosemary, clove and Niaouli.

I keep this on hand for blemishes, skin conditions and ear aches. It’s also very effective for killing bugs!



  • Lavender- known as the Swiss Army knife of oils. It covers just about everything3575.

Outdoor sneezing, all skin conditions, rashes, bug bites, minor burns, & sleep aid!




  • Geranium- I didn’t have this single on hand, but I did have the blend called Joy.3372

Joy has 10 singles in it, including geranium. It’s included in the Starter Kit and is commonly used to combat feeling blue. When you know what’s in your bottles, blends are helpful because more than likely you will already have what you need.


  • Cinnamon & Rosemary- these oils are combined in the blend called Thieves.3423

This blend is highly effective against viruses and bacteria of all sorts. I did dilute it with coconut oil when I applied it to my son’s head so that it wouldn’t burn.

Click here to read more about what Thieves did for my family.

Other essential oils listed: peppermint, nutmeg, & thyme. I didn’t have any of those, but I trusted that the ones I did have were enough. After I applied the oils diluted with coconut oil, I covered our heads with shower caps. For the first night, we all slept with this mixture and the shower cap on our heads. For the following days, I applied the oils during the day, 3-5 times per day.Lice2 Lice1He wasn’t overly excited to wear the shower cap, but once we all were fashionably sporting one, he warmed up to it.

After 3 days of treatment, all of the little eggs were gone. They turned black and died. I did have to pick them out one by one in mamma monkey fashion, but it felt good to know they were dying. On day 3, my good friend came over who is an elementary school nurse to check all of our heads. She didn’t find any eggs on anyone’s head. Success!  I have heard of stories where it takes weeks to get rid of head bugs, but not with the oils.

As the new school year approaches, I’m planning on stocking up on my oils. They are multifunctional and for me, it’s a no-brainer. I also have started thinking along the lines of prevention. There’s a few stories about kids attending parties where everyone walked away with head bugs except the ones with lavender on their scalps. It’s a natural deterrent, and Young Living makes a wonderful lavender shampoo. Perfect for the upcoming school year!5100 If you are interested in purchasing some for your family, feel free to send me an email and we can chat, or you can use my online order form.

The “How” of Aromatherapy

Why do essential oils work and how do they work? I think this is the most common question for new users. It felt like I was buying a bunch of bologna when I first heard about aromatherapy. It’s hundreds of years old, but I didn’t really believe in it until I understood the science behind it. I’m a facts girl though, can you blame me?

Just like a drug user will snort their toxic substance of choice for a quick high, smelling essential oils will deliver the molecules of the oil into the body. The membranes in the nose are very thin, and the oil molecules are very small, making them easily absorbed into the blood stream.

2133231Once the oils are in the blood stream, they can begin to reprogram your cells by cleaning the receptor sites on the cell directly. These oils are called Phenols for short. Other oils, called Monoterpenes can reprogram the mis-written DNA codes in the cells. THe last job that some oils have are to rewrite the DNA so that they function the way God intended from the beginning. It’s really fascinating the science behind these little guys! An oil will only restore the body back to the factory settings, it will not “change” the function of the cell.

The other fascinating fact is that they are able to cross the blood brain barrier.
This is the reason why essential oils can be used effectively in cases of Autism and ADHD. Unlike pharmaceuticals, they go the extra mile so to speak, so smell away!

Sneezing, Itching & Essential Oils….. [A Follow Up]

In February, I started researching the congestion caused by outdoor irritants  because they are such a big deal in our house. Catch up and read the first post, and then come back to hear the results. Can I just emphasize how bad the spring time season is for us? Here’s a picture of my husband’s back after he had some testing done. Those big red hives are from tress, grasses and weeds. Not pretty.IMG_0161SO, needless to say we dreaded Springtime. For years, I have done all of the yard work because Jesse is just simply miserable when he mows grass. In the past, he would usually start mowing the front yard, and by the time he reached the backyard his eyes, nose and wheezing had begun to make him so miserable he would stay inside for the rest of the day. Going a day without over the counter meds was unheard of- until now. The oils work!!

Since March 1st, we’ve been using a few different oils and supplements to combat them. The Recipe Bomb:  3 drops lavender + 3 drops peppermint + 3 drops lemon + 3 drops Idaho Balsam Fir + a vegetable capsule //once per day. They look like this… capsuleYou won’t actually taste the oils going down, but you will when you burp them. This particular recipe mainly tastes like peppermint so it’s not really a big deal to us. What’s been really great about this is that we can take more than one of these per day if it’s bad, unlike the over the counter meds. I can also rub more lavender on my face, sinuses or roof of the mouth if necessary. We went on a day trip camping recently and Jesse didn’t get bothered by the outdoors at all. We were outside for 8+ hours. And just this weekend, he mowed the lawn for me!!! (My love language is acts of service so this was a very big deal to me.) I had actually forgotten to make him his recipe bomb and remembered about halfway through the backyard. He didn’t seem uncomfortable at all, and didn’t complain for the rest of the day about any symptoms. AMAZING, considering his “tests” above.

I should also mention a few other things that we have been doing to combat this season. First, we focus on the symptoms, and in tandem we also focus on the causes. I’m convinced that the causes for our issues are in our digestive system. So we have added a daily dose of probiotics in the form of kombucha to help heal the root cause. He has also been taking Sulfurzyme, which is a supplement from Young Living.Sulfurzyme Sulfurzyme is a targeted product to aid in proper digestion. It supports the immune system and liver with a few key ingredients. Sulfurzyme® combines wolfberry with MSM, a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies every day to maintain the structure of proteins, protect cells and cell membranes, replenish the connections between cells, and preserve the molecular framework of connective tissue.* MSM also supports the immune system, the liver, circulation, and proper intestinal function and works to scavenge free radicals.

Friends, the more I learn about the liver and it’s functions, the more important it becomes. I do realize that some of you may be reading this searching for answers for a child’s issues. Only 1 of my kids is able to swallow a capsule, making the recipe bomb and Sulfurzyme not viable options for us. For my other 2 kids, I apply the lavender to their noses, sinuses and if they are up for it, the inside of their mouths. It’s a natural anti-histamine so it is working to counter the natural histamine response. Lavender can be diffused throughout the house, and Sulfurzyme is also sold in a powder form to be added to food. Mainly, we are focusing on getting more probiotics inside of our bodies. Kombucha has become part of the daily breakfast regimen and if I can sneak some more in, than I do throughout the day with other probiotic foods. Here’s an amazing potato salad recipe my upline posted. We’ve eaten it twice in 1 weekend. Yumm-o

So there ya go! As promised, a follow-up for all of the sneezy-itchy-outddor irritant sufferers. Please note that I do not promote products I have not personally tested first. Neighbors, friends and family have been my willing guinea pigs and to them I say, thank you!

Sneezing, Itching & Essential Oils

Springtime irritants are a big deal at our house. Each year as Spring hits, my husband and I have the same disagreement over the open windows. I love to smell the fresh air, and let in the outdoors to feel the gentle breezes, but he has a reaction to the outdoors, and prefers the house to be locked up tight. Everyday, when I sneak in my open window time while he’s away, he always asks me after work if I had the windows open because his body can tell. It’s a loosing battle, as 4 out of the 5 of us have serious seasonal issues with the outdoors. Hundreds of dollars spent on medications, tissues, and indoor activities (movies) to escape the sneezing, itching, watery eyes drama. This year I plan to take a new approach for relief.3575 3578 3614The Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint recipe bomb. I have read testimony after testimony of these 3 oils working together to bring full relief of sneezing, itchy, watery eyes for others and I am so excited to test it out on my family in a few weeks.

Simply fill a vegetable capsule with 3 drops of each Young Living essential oil and ingest as often as needed. I did some math on the recipe bombs vs. the over the counter meds and here’s what I found:

15 ml bottles of  Lavender + Lemon + Peppermint = $74.00  Vegetable capsules = $10.00

For $84 you will have 84 recipe bombs to combat springtime ($1 per capsule)

For most suffers, this cost is approximately equal to what over the counter brands cost. Add in the cost of tissues, eye drops and nasal sprays and it is well worth the investment. The best part about essential oils is that you do not need to worry about over dosing. I often find my meds stop working and I’m wishing I could take two doses during a highly effected  week. Most of the testimonies that I have read stated that after a 2 week regimen of recipe bombs, people were able to stop using the essential oils altogether or decrease in frequency. This is good news for sufferers.

And for kiddos who can’t quite swallow a capsule, all of these oils can be applied externally for the same benefits. Swipe lavender inside the cheeks and nostrils to alleviate symptoms. Also try applying the oils to the vita flex points on the bottom of the feet. Oils can be added to a teaspoon of honey to be taken internally, or passed through a diffuser for aromatherapy benefits.

I plan on posting an update in a few months to follow up this post to let you know how it has worked for us. If you would like to stock up your medicine cabinet before the Spring season hits, please consider using Young Living oils. They are the only brand I will endorse for internal usage as they are 100% pure, therapeutic grade oils. As always, feel free to email me with any questions, or to try a sample!
