Sinus support

SInus blend

Do you ever feel like your sinuses could use a little help? I have been feeling that way this week, so I dug a little and found this recipe to try as a home remedy.

 

Sinus Blend

  • 20 drops Lemongrass
  • 20 drops Ocotea
  • 20 drops Idaho Blue Spruce
  • 10 drops Copaiba
  • 10 drops Eucalyptus Blue
  • 6 drops Peppermint
  • 6 drops Release blend

There are several ways to use this blend.

  • Apply a few drops topically over the sinus areas on the face and down the sides of the neck below the ears.
  • Place a few drops in an inhaler tube and sniff periodically.
  • Add a few drops to a Neti Pot sinus rinse solution and use as directed.
  • Rub a few drops over the vitaflex/reflex points on the feet that correspond to the sinuses.
  • Add a few drops to boiling water and place a towel over your head to make a tent and breathe deeply.

Smile! It’s a breath of fresh air!

Cedarwood — A breath of fresh air!

Cedarwood

Sometimes I go to my oil cabinet and just pick an oil. As I sat down to write I remembered being drawn to Cedarwood this morning. It is one of my favorite oils. I really can’t tell you why, but it is! Perhaps it is because I always think of how good it made me feel when I used to have trouble breathing. Within minutes after applying Cedarwood and breathing it in deeply, my Oxygen saturation would jump dramatically and soon my lungs would relax and I would feel so much more calm!

What essential oil were you drawn to today? How did it make you feel?

Dust Allergies

Dust Mites be gone

Are you allergic to dust? Actually, if you are, you probably already know a lot about dust mites and their itty-bitty poop droppings, which are actually the problem! But did you know there is a natural and safe way to control and eliminate dust mites in your mattresses, carpet and furniture?

A 2014 study conducted in Thailand is very interesting. The researchers used a 2% solution of Clove essential oil in a 95% solution of ethyl alcohol. They concluded that Clove oil is “effective against all stages of live mites including mature and immature mites, larvae and egg stages when direct contact is made.”

Clove oil is a scent I enjoy. It is one of the ingredients in Thieves Spray. So I got to thinking that Thieves Spray would be a simple way to deal the death blow to those nasty mites!  So easy and safe, yet effective! Of course you could also make your own Dust Mite Spray with clove oil and alcohol. I prefer using grain alcohol like Vodka, because it is safer than rubbing alcohol.

So if you have a dust allergy, here are some ways to incorporate clove oil into your cleaning routine!

  • Try adding Thieves Household Cleaner to the washer when laundering bedding.
  • Dust with a solution of Thieves Household Cleaner instead of using commercial dusting products.
  • Clean your carpets with Thieves Household Cleaner.
  • Add clove oil to the carpet shampoo.
  • Spray your mattress once a week with a few sprays of Thieves Spray.
  • Diffuse Thieves or Clove oil in your home regularly.

Can you tell I love Thieves? Well, these are just a few ideas that come to mind. Perhaps you can think of others.
