starting the year off healthy

This past Fall I got a bit of cold or sinus crud and immediately started on a regime of oils.  My hubby, having a weak immune system, decided it couldn't hurt.  So far it has been amazing.  We never got down enough to just laze around and didn't miss any work.  Flu has been all around us and we still keep oiling it up and staying well.  These oils are a blessing and I wish more people would take them seriously.  After all God gave us all we would need to live on his Earth, so why not do it his way.  If you would like to learn more about living without constant medication and discomfort, let me hear from you.  I love to talk about the Oils.

Is the Cheap Stuff just as Good as Young Living

Are you still skeptical about spending so much on quality essential oils?  Here are some things to think about while standing in the Department store health aisle.
Oils are made from leaves, roots and other plant parts that must be harvested correctly by many people over several days just for a small amount of the oil.  It takes a lot of the plant, sometimes up to a ton of leaves, roots or plant parts to make just 1 bottle of oil.  It takes about 60 lemons for one bottle of essential oil and you only need one drop for a good dose of limonene which is good for so many ills.  this doesn't even include the effects of processing; which Young Living only uses one distillation near the site of harvest for the purest oil.  When you really think about it.  Could the cheaper companies afford to sell a quality product so cheap.

YL oils are full of high quality, potent oils that can pack a lot into one drop of pure health.  When used wisely, one bottle can last a long time and still provide the best care, compared to its counterpart, that has been overprocessed or maybe even adulterated.

Don’t skimp on your health.

You Deserve the Best Oil or A Fresh Cup of Coffee

If you like a good cup of coffee, (or tea in my case) you know what the best is and don't want to settle for anything less. That's how Young Living oils are, the best.   If you are on the fence about oils and the cost, think of this.  When you make a good pot of coffee, you have a good quality coffee, with good water, then brew it once and there's the cup of coffee you wanted.  If you can't get the good coffee, you settle for what you can get, but it's not the good cup you really wanted.  If you run more water over the coffee to get another cup or two, the coffee will be even less than it was.  Young Living are the best,  they choose the best plants in the best environments and go through one distillation, to provide the best oil you can get.  What's left is sold to other companies who usually run it through more processing to get what they can out of it.  You deserve the best cup of coffee and the best oil that can give you the best health.
If you're interested in starting the New Year off healthy, let me know and I can get you started.

An Oily Community

I just attended a Facebook event hosted by Tina Alvarenga, who was sharing some oil info.  She was so enthusiastic and pointed out one very important part of The Young Living community.  We are a Community.  There are lots of FB groups for YL and everyone is so willing to share and help with any question you have, and I've had some doozies. LOL  I love having like minded friends who don't have to be right here to be in touch.  If your intersted in joining a group of people who want to help make your life healthier and more natural just ask, everyone is welcome.

My own Guinea Pig

My last post was about beginning my oily journey.  This episode is about trying to heal my family without going to the dr. (first edition)
I got the sinus crud a couple of weeks ago, along with everyone else at work.  I looked up oils that would help.  I started gargling with Thieves oil, mixed a batch of honey with basil, peppermint and lemon oils to take for the congestion.  then my DH came down with the same stuff.  As a cancer survivor he has a low immune system, but has doubted the power of oils, so just blows my suggestions off, until now.  He followed my regime along with slathering a potion of oils with coconut oil on his chest and around his nose. 
2 weeks after my first symptom I feel much better and he is on his way.  We're still trying to clear his chest, but the initial misery is gone, with no prescriptions involved. 
This stuff is the Bomb.  It stopped a fever blister in its tracks.

I feel like an old hippy

A few years ago, I was suffering from severe sinus issues.  The headaches were awful, many turning into migraines.  I was going through my months perscription in 2 weeks.  I was miserable.   As I tutored a friends granddaughter she shared a small container of something she had mixed up.  Since I had a corner on the vics vapor rub, and it smelled similar I figured why not.  I was amazed how much relief I got.  I could use it as often as i needed with no side effects.  She shared more of her "potions" and I was hooked.
I ordered the expensive kit and was so excited when it came in.  Unfortunately, the excitement passed as I realized I had no idea what to do with all the cute little bottles.  Being the skeptic that I am I soon decided that I could get the same stuff for a lot less cost.  So I did what anyone did, I bought online or at the health store.  The scents were very similar so I was happy and still had money in my pocket.  Until, I did some reading about oils and learned the hazards of them along with benefits.  I talked to alot of "oilers" and collected lots of info.  Then it happened, I started getting bad headaches and the cheaper oils were no help.  The final straw was when my DH came in and asked if I was painting. "of course not".  "Well, it smells like turpentine in here"  that was it.  I started eliminating some of the cheaper oils.  and eventually forgot about using them all together.  
There came a day at school, as a teacher, I was having some serious stress issues and my students were out of control.  My first "oily" friend came to my rescue and I have been hooked with great results.  
I hope you follow me as I learn more about essential oils and continue my journey to a healthier me.

homemade soap

Well, I did it.  I've been wanting to do this for over 20 years, but the idea of working with lye scared me off everytime.  I know me well enough to know how haphazard I can get when tackling a serious task.  But here it is, lye and all.  I can't believe how easy it was and now I can't believe I waited so long.  Have you ever been scared to do something you REALLY wanted to, but fear stopped you?  Don't let fear win!!!  You will regret the time you wasted.  So go for it, whatever it is. You'll be glad you did.  Now how's that for a bunch of old cliche's.  JUST KNOW IT'S TRUE!
