Get your body into balance  

 I’m excited to offer aromatherapy treatments with a bio-survey process called Galvanic Skin Response testing using  

Technology.  This testing measures the body’s imbalances and selects the proper therapeutic-grade essential oils that will assist the body back into balance.

Clean Green with essential oils

Don’t think that essential oils can only be used for aromatherapy or massage therapy-they have so much more to offer!

While going about your daily household tasks you’ve probably stopped to consider the effects of artificial flavoring in foods or the synthetic compounds in your household cleaner. More than likely you’ve wondered if these mystery ingredients are even safe to use in your home.

Essential oils can eliminate these concerns when you incorporate them into your daily household routine. Replacing man-made synthetics with natural, plant-based essential oils removes questionable ingredients from your home and adds countless benefits. Whether you use essential oils to infuse your favorite dishes with flavor, clean your home without harmful chemicals, or supplement your existing first-aid kit with plant-based solutions, they’re sure to safely and naturally enhance your experience.  

“Basically, if you trace any chemical back to its origin, it all comes from nature at some point, the key is in the extraction process.” 

Essential Oil of the Week

THIEVES

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Thieves®  

 Thieves® is a Young Living Oil blend created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities and contains clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. 

TIPS

I like to put a couple of drops of Lemon, Citrus Fresh, Purification or even Lavender on my A/C filters each time I replace them.  It cleans the air and leaves a wonderful scent! Shelton

Household cleaner:
Fill a spray bottle with water and a squirt of dishwashing soap.

Add 3-5 drops each of lavender, lemon, and pine essential oils.

Shake well.

Floor cleaner:

Add 1/4 cup white vinegar to a bucket of water.

Add 5-10 drops lemon, pine, spruce, melaleuca, or Purification essential oil.

Fighting dust mites:
Recent research has shown that eucalyptus essential oil kills dust mites that live in bedding.  Add 25 drops of eucalyptus essential oil to each load of laundry for an effective dust mite deterrent.

Hot tubs and saunas:
Use 3 drops per person of lavender, cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, thyme, lemon, or grapefruit to disinfect and freshen the water.

For saunas, add several drops rosemary, thyme, pine, or lavender to a spray bottle with water and spray surfaces. This water can also be used to splash onto hot sauna stones.  

Kitchens and bathrooms:

Mix into 1 quart water: 2 drops rosemary, 4 drops lemon, 3 drops eucalyptus, and 4 drops lavender.  Shake well and put into a spray bottle. Shake again before using.  

Window cleaner:

Mix in 1 quart spray bottle: 1 cup White Vinegar, 10-15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil, water.  Mix vinegar and water in spray bottle.  Add essential oil.  Shake and use.  

Stain Removal:

Use a drop or two of lemon essential oil on stains.  Let stand and rub off with a clean cloth or throw into laundry cycle.  

In the Dryer:

Instead of using toxic and irritating softening sheets in the dryer, toss in a dampened washcloth with 10 drops of lavender, lemon, melaleuca, bergamot, or other oils added.  While the oils will not reduce static cling, they will impart a lovely fragrance to the clothes.
