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!

Sprains, Strains & Essential Oils

It was a scene directly from Home Alone where the bad guys are being duped by Kevin. He sets out his hot wheel cars and they rush into the room, unaware that he has set the trap, and they step on the little four wheeled monsters to fall flatly on their backs.

After 6 years of having little boys in my house, I finally relived this scene in my own home. It was bound to happen so WHY AM I SURPRISED? Instead of falling on my back, I fell forward with my knee and wrists catching the brunt of my fall. I fell so fast, that I was kind of in shock as to what actually happened. Then I noticed the hot wheel car and it all clicked. Within an hour I was sore. My entire right side of my body was in pain from my neck and back, to my wrists and on down to the ankles. My right wrist was giving me the most pain, so much so that it was difficult to dress myself, cook dinner and apply make-up for my date that evening. My husband was worried I may have fractured it. That’s when I went on the hunt for some relief from my Essential oils kit. Panaway to the rescue!3391  PanAway® was created by Gary Young following a severe injury to the ligaments in his leg. PanAway is soothing to the skin while providing comforting warmth to muscles after exercise. It feels a lot like IcyHot when applied.

The main ingredients are Clove, Helichrysum, Peppermint and Wintergreen. Wintergreen essential oil is often used for massage, and similar to cortisone. Clove contains eugenol which is used by Dentists to numb gums and Helichrysum soothes local discomfort. It’s like aspirin in a bottle without the side affects.

Uses for this amazing blend of oils include massage, injured joints and muscles, growing pain relief, back and spinal pain, head pressure and it can even be used on pets for joint discomfort.

I applied 1-2 drops of Panaway to my right wrist 6 times within a 24 hour period and by the next evening I was using my chef’s knife, slicing raw sweet potatoes. I was pain free! Even though I am a distributor of Young Living oils and believe in their effectiveness, I was literally amazed at how fast and how permanent the results were.

If you are interested in ordering Panaway for your medicine kit, please visit the Young Living website, and don’t forget to include my distributor ID :1597999
