muscle-painRelieve It Essential Oil for Occasional Deep Tissue Pain

This is another oil I’m trying this week as it came up on a Zyto Scan I did for someone and I found out it is the “go-to” oil for occasional deep tissue pain. It is an extraordinary blend of:

Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita) is cooling to the skin. It blocks discomfort and enhances the other effects of the oils.

Spruce Essential Oil (Picea mariana) relaxes body and mind and soothes muscles. It is grounding and emotionally releasing.

Black Pepper Essential Oil (Piper nigrum) is  that is good for  tissue discomfort.It is supportive of the digestive system and is useful topically for soothing muscle discomfort following exercise.

Hyssop Essential Oil (Hyssopus officinalis) has purifying properties.

Apply on location and anywhere there is deep tissue pain. Alternate with PanAway when there is bone discomfort

Relieve it!

Surrender to the Deepest Sleep You’ve Ever Known

Surrender to the Deepest Sleep You’ve Ever Known!

My husband was shocked at the results when I first tried my new Young Living Essential Oil Surrender!  He was having trouble shutting his mind off and, therefore, he was waking up at 2 a.m and not able to go back to sleep.  I always like to try one new oil in my order each month and I was feeling I needed to experiment with some new oils for a restful sleep.  I had researched Surrender and decided to try it.  The first night in the diffuser, we slept so soundly and much later than normal. Same thing the second night.  I felt it was truly clearing out some negative emotions for me during the night and I was able to work through some things stuck in my mind, if that makes sense.  How this works, I don’t know, but it does.  I’ve never had experience with the oils emotionally before, so this was a first.  Then I read this:

“Surrender Essential Oil is a blend designed to balance and calm the emotions; and release controlling or unfocused behaviors. Many times when we tend to be overbearing and committed to our ways so we become one sided and can’t see what is in front of us; even if it is an opportunity or a solution to our problem. Surrender oil will help us relax and clear the mind so we can be more open minded and see our way through.”  Source: www.experienceessential-oils.com

Wow! I had no idea an oil would really do all this, but if you study the oils in this blend, you can see the design in mind.

Spruce Essential Oil – for muscle tension and emotional release.

Lavender Essential Oil –  Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy.

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil has a warm, sweet, herbaceous scent that is relaxing and calming for both mind and body. Its gentleness makes it especially valuable for restless children. Soothing to all types of skin, it is used extensively in Europe in skin preparations. Roman chamomile is also beneficial when added to massage oil for relief of muscle discomfort after exercise.

Mountain Savory Essential Oil  provides support for the immune, nervous, and circulatory systems.

Lemon Essential Oil -has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant. It is delightfully refreshing in water and may be beneficial for the skin. Lemon may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons. It is purifying and uplifting.

German Chamomile Essential Oil – has been used to support the body’s natural response to irritation and injury. This oil contains chamazulene, a compound studied for its ability to help the body’s natural inflammatory response. Soothes and clears the mind.

Angelica Essential Oil – In Germany, angelica was historically referred to as the “oil of angels,” in part because of its ability to calm anxiety, restore happy memories, and bring peaceful sleep. Traditional medicine practitioners used angelica as a stimulant, digestive tonic, and expectorant. Helps to release and let go of negative emotions.

You can use this oil without dilution and apply it topically to your ears, wrists or the vitaflex points of the feet.  Directly inhale it or diffuse it, as I did, for a restful sleep!

Surrender!

Grounding Essential Oil

grounding-essential

Grounding Essential Oil

The name of this oil really describes its effects on your mind, body and spirit. This oil has been really helpful to me on this emotional rollercoaster ride of sitting with a parent in end stage kidney failure and walking through the stages of letting go with the other parent.  Personally it aids in a restful sleep for me.

This oil will stabilize and calm a person upon first application. This is a good oil for those who are simply in denial of their own true reality. Many times this happens because we just don’t know how to deal with the emotional aspect of what we are going through, so we get paralyzed and can’t move forward. This oil can help.

It contains 7 essential oils blended together to stabilize emotions and bring a sense of calm as it reaches the nervous system.

  • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
  • Spruce Essential Oil
  • Cedarwood Essential Oil
  • Juniper Essential Oil
  • White Fir Essential Oil
  • Pine Essential Oil
  • Angelica Essential Oil

Documented Uses for Grounding Essential Oil Abuse, anger, balance,  clearing, confusion, despair, disappointment, grounding, overwhelmed, panic,  rejection, shock, spacing out and transition in life.

Application:  This oil can be applied undiluted.

Apply several drops (2-4) on ears, throat, back of neck, wrists or temples or on the vitaflex points of the feet

Inhale or diffuse

So if you need a little “grounding”, this oil is for you!

Texas Hospital Trains Nurses Using Essential Oils

Essential Oils in Hospitals

I find it amazing that physicians now are encouraging and training nurses and other health care professionals to use essential oils. This is a fact being played out in hospitals across the United States, aromatherapy treatments do have a legitimate role in modern medicine. In a recent article written and published at NurseZone.com by Debra Wood, RN, she states:

“At Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital in Texas, for instance, nurses have learned to tap the healing art of aromatherapy to lower patients’ stress levels and their own.”

Susan Shield, MBA, RN, NE-BC, director of the cancer program at Harris Methodist and certified clinical aromatherapy consultant and instructor states in the article:

“We see reported decreases in the use of pain medications.”  “Patients tell us they seem more relaxed. In people who are not verbal, we see decreases in agitation and decreases in muscle twitching.”

Some of Harris Methodists nursing supervisors heard about aromatherapy at a conference led by international expert Jane Buckle, Ph.D., RN, and critical care nurse. She was brought to the hospital to train 15 practitioners. The hospital drafted guidelines for the use of essential oils and their therapy.

I predict we will see more and more traditional medical professionals turn to aromatherapy through essential oils in exponential numbers. Why? Because it works. I am so grateful that I have discovered essential oils at this point in my life. Essentials oils have been around for centuries and their uses and success have been documented way before “modern western” medicine noticed their extraordinary benefit.

Not only do patients experience benefit from the aromatherapy, but the nursing staff on duty when the oils are diffused all saw a decrease in their stress levels. I will share one more insight from this article from Susan Shields in the benefit of helping cancer nurses using essential oils to help start IVs.

“There are chemical components in the essential oils, like pepper, that are vasodilators,” Shields said. “We dilute it in a carrier oil and apply it to the skin. About 15 minutes later, the veins pop up. It also deadens the skin somewhat.”

My journey has just begun with essential oils. I thoroughly find great delight in helping others find a solution to their pain, and other ailments through essential oils.

Zyto Scan for Essential Oils

Do you ever wish that you could be more in charge of your healthcare? More than being careful about the foods you eat? Are you overwhelmed by all the different choices for essential oils and supplements? Want to quit wasting money on supplements your body may not need?

I am excited to introduce the Zyto Compass technology into my essential oils journey!

I have shared with many that I have been on a year long search for answers to digestive problems that have plagued me most of my life.  A year ago I ended up in the ER, after which I was past to 4 different doctors and given thousands of dollars worth of tests, only to have exhausted the expertise of two specialists who no longer answer my questions and who have been unable to find a cause for the problems.  Enter the Zyto Scan!  Through this amazing technology and the personalized recommendations made for my body, I was able to identify some simple deficiencies that were causing digestive issues. I studied the suggested oils and supplements and did further research on how these deficiencies affected the digestion and came up with three vitamins my body must be depleted in. Once I started replacing those vitamins and using the balancing essential oils suggested by the Zyto scan, my symptoms disappeared and for the first time in many years I feel a balance in my digestion. For me, it was spot on! I have had every kind of bloodwork done over the past year, but these deficiencies were not identified. This technology seemed to hone in on the need at the moment and for me it was life changing! I knew then that this would be an important tool in my quest to educate people who want to take charge of their health.

Amazing Benefits of Coconut Oil

coconut oil essentialThe first experience I had with Coconut Oil, other than occasionally using it in a recipe, was using it as an ingredient in making soap. Adding this oil to your soaping making recipe provides a positive antioxidant action in the body. Meaning, coconut oil helps to stop the damage to other healthy fats and tissues in our body. It helps us look a little younger and helps to keep the body from aging so quickly.

Not only is coconut oil a great alternative in the kitchen, but it provides additional benefits for our skin and hair as a moisturizer. One 2005 study of 120 babies showed that a coconut oil massage is safe and has health benefits for infants.

Dr. Oz shares that there is an enormous amount of benefit to coconut oil. From reducing cholesterol to balancing weight.

From this article

How does coconut oil help with our use of essential oils?

We use coconut oil as a carrier oil — Below is a great explanation:

Carrier oils are useful when working with essential oils because it is sometimes necessary to dilute a neat oil. One example is when applying to the skin.  Powerful, highly concentrated essential oils may cause skin irritations.  Another use for carrier oils blended with essential oils is that they are often applied during massage, acting as a needed lubricating agent when working larger areas and muscles.

from this article

From this same article there are other practical uses for coconut oil for the essential oil user.

With no double bonds, there is no oxidation. Thus, fractionated coconut oil is a carrier that never goes rancid. It basically has an indefinite shelf life and is in a perfectly clear liquid form. Other advantages of fractionated coconut oil are:

· It is odorless and colorless. It won’t stain and easily washes out of clothing and sheets.

· It absorbs into the skin while reducing essential oil evaporation.

· It is excellent on skin; a natural and very safe moisturizer, softener and safe, non-irritant lubricator.

· It leaves skin smooth with no greasy feeling.

· Low production costs make it cost effective.

· It can be mixed with other, more expensive, carriers to increase shelf life. It can also be used to create different cream textures.

· It does not aggravate skin problems or clog pores.

· It is fully digestible and considered an excellent and healthy cooking oil.

· It is truly one of the best multi-purpose carrier oil products on the market.

In closing, a good quality coconut oil should accompany any essential oil cabinet.

Pepsi One Contains Potentially High Levels of Carcinogen

essential oils detoxMy journey to living a healthier lifestyle including cutting out soda. The artificial sweetener was enough to make us stop, but now this recent report by Consumer Reports state that cans of Pepsi One may contain high levels of a potential carcinogen called d 4-methylimidazole (4-MeI).

The article states:

Knowing that 4-MeI is often used in the artificial caramel coloring that gives soda its brown hue, Consumer Reports tested 81 cans and bottles of popular soft drinks purchased in New York and California between April and September 2013. The researchers then retested any brands that initially tested as containing over 29 micrograms of 4-MeI per can or bottle.

An essential oil detox every so often certainly would help in ridding your body of the chemicals that you ingest.  I will be posting my suggestions for the best essential oils to use for detoxing.

Essential Oils for Weight Control

essential oils for weight lossEssential oils for weight control

So two days in a row now I have weighed in the morning and then in the evening and I found I had lost weight during the day. This has never happened to me! You weigh more at the end of the day after eating, right? The first day it was one pound less and today I was two pounds lighter in the evening.

What is happening? I have been taking 1 drop Lemon Essential Oil and 1 drop Grapefruit Essential Oil with a few drops of olive oil in a capsule each morning. Now I have been cutting calories and exercising, but this added regimen seems to have helped get me off high center. You know the “lose one pound, gain two back “merry-go-round”.

Lemon Oil can help boost your metabolism helping your body burn more calories and emulsify fat.

Grapefruit Oil reduces appetite and decreases fluid retention.

I have not been hungry, but I may add peppermint to the mix next.

Peppermint Oil can help reduce appetite and curb cravings—a key component to weight loss.  It is also filled with nutrients, including vitamin A and C, omega-3 fatty acids, and minerals including potassium, manganese, iron, magnesium, calcium, and copper.  Not only does it promote weight loss, it also nourishes your body.
