It’s an Oily week! Starting with Correct-X

Each day this week we are going to take a minute and go over a few different oils. These are going to be oils that my family keeps on hand and uses daily!

I love to share my oils. When friends or family tell me they aren’t feeling great, I go right to my Modern Essential Oils book, check out the symptoms and give them the oil that I feel would be best for that.

A coworker of mine said he took a snowboard to his shin, so I had some Correct-X on hand, gave him some and asked him to use it consistantly over the weekend. The pictures below are from applying it a couple times a day. The picture on the left is on Friday, a day or two after it happened. The picture on the right is on Monday when he came back to work. Not completely gone, but you can certainly see the difference in it!

A little bit about Correct-X:

Primary Benefits

  • Frankincense, Helichrysum, Melaleuca, Cedarwood, and Lavender soothe and purify skin
  • Bisabolol is known for its calming effects and ability to promote healthy-looking skin
  • Similar to the natural oils found in skin, Jojoba provides optimal hydration, helping to improve the texture of skin
  • Phellodendron Amurense Bark extract is used to condition the skin.

I know it’s a little graphic. But I swear by Correct-X. Get you Correct-X today!IMG_0657.JPG

Sore Throat? Tis’ the season!

Sore throats are horrible! They hurt, they make you feel lousy and frankly….they are just plain annoying!

What I love about doing essential oils is the ability to share! I love sharing them! I love when a neighbor calls up and asks for my opinion on what their family should do about a sore throat, cough or any other annoying illness that comes up.

I have found a great gargle that works for that crazy sore throat. Here is your recipe for the day….you ready?

1 drop of Melaleuca

Benefits:

  • Renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin
  • Promotes healthy immune function when used internally*
  • Ingest to protect against environmental and seasonal threats*

1 drop of Onguard

Benefits:

  • Supports healthy immune and respiratory function*
  • Protects against environmental threats*
  • Supports the body’s natural antioxidant defenses*
  • Promotes healthy circulation*
  • Energizing and uplifting aroma

1 drop of Lemon

Benefits:

  • Cleanses and purifies the air and surfaces
  • Naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion*

Put it into a small glass of water and gargle it all the way back in your throat.

This will help take away that pesky pain in the back of your throat!

Ear Infections….does your family get them?

Do your kids get ear infections or ear aches? Have YOU ever had them? I’m not discrediting how it is for kids, but it is so painful for adults too! I, all of a sudden started giving more sympathy to my kids when they got ear aches. Luckily for us, I can always catch and start to help treat ear infections when they first come by putting a little bit of Melaleuca on a cotton ball and putting it in the ear that hurts. Normally by the time my son wakes up in the morning, his ear is feeling so much better.

I have a great recipe for a roller bottle too, which I am in love with! Now the awesome thing is….I found these amazing labels that I use for my Rollerbottles that help remind you of the main ingredients in them, and because essential oils can be overwhelming when first starting out, they also remind you of good places to apply them! Amazing right?!

When I first started out using oils, I was told “less is more!”. You don’t have to use a whole bottle of your essential oil to create different recipes. Most recipes only take a few drops of each oil when you are creating them. Fractionated Coconut Oil is key to keep on hand! That is what I use for all of mine.

For this recipe you will use the following:

6 drops of Basil

6 drops of Lavender

6 drops of Melaleuca

Fill the rest of the 10ml bottle up with Fractionated Coconut Oil

You can pick up the stickers here

They have even created cute names for them so that you remember EXACTLY what this blend is for!

I think I’ve mentioned this before, I LOVE ESSENTIAL OILS! If your child wakes up in the middle of the night with an ear ache, go right to your oils and grab the rollerbottle you’ve already made up! Super easy! Remember, you can start getting oils today! Let me know when you are ready.
