Here are some oils I reach for when I need comfort & support… After using the oils for awhile, I found I no longer have the need for over the counter remedies that often have ingredients that are harmful to our bodies. I just love how pampered I feel!
Those Winter Blues & Discomforts…
At first sneeze, I prefer to put a half drop of Melaleuca on my fingertip by covering the bottle with my pinkie finger and putting the bottle upside down. The amount on my finger is good for both sides of the inside of my nose. This is kind of strong for many people, so try at your own risk.
Tea to Boost Breathing Function
Add 2 drops of each oil to steaming cup of water: Oregano, Melaleuca, Lemon, Peppermint. Breathe the steam. See how it opens up breathing?
I use this when ever I feel those seasonal issues knocking… Supports healthy immune function while protecting against environmental and seasonal threats. It’s cleansing and rejuvenating.
3 drops each: Melaleuca, Oregano, Protective Blend and Lemon in a capsule 3 times daily.
For powerful cleansing properties especially in the throat while supporting a healthy immune system and promoting healthy cellular growth, the honey eases the flavor! (this is extremely helpful when needing to sing in the early morning!)
1 tsp RAW honey – preferably local; 2 drops Frankincense; 2 drops Myrrh
Place all on a spoon and swallow. DO NOT follow with water. This quickly provides the comfort I need! Makes my throat feel strong and capable! It’s a little nasty in taste. For my “littles” I use 1 drop Protective Blend and 1 drop Lemon in place of the Frankincense and Myrrh.
We have not used store bought deodorant since I found this recipe! It’s great! We just scoop a tiny amount onto our fingers in the morning and rub on our pits. This recipe lasts for several months. It would not work for a stick deodorant as it becomes liquid in the warmer months. But you may only require using a few drops of your favorite essential oil mixed with water or Fractionated Coconut Oil.
If you prefer a spray deodorant, simply add your favorite essential oils to some Witch Hazel or pure water in a spray bottle. Be sure you use a glass spray bottle.
All Natural Vapor Rub
This recipe allows for variance in the amount of essential oils so you can make stronger or milder versions. Mix all ingredients well and pour into glass jar. Mixture will solidify as it cools. It’s so comforting to rub on chest, throat and back for support when dealing with environmental threats. Rub on bottoms of feet and cover with socks or rub a little under nostrils.
Caution: Only certified pure Eucalyptus is gentle and safe enough to use on children under age two.
