Makeover Your Cleaning Cabinet with Essential Oils

One of the many reasons I love essential oils is that you can do SO much with them!  They are very versatile and extremely safe. I especially love how I can CLEAN my house with them in an all-natural way, avoiding all of the nasty toxins found in the large majority of commercial cleaners. You can makeover your cleaning cabinet, too, and experience how simple it is to have a green, clean home. We’ll be featuring LOTS of cleaning recipes coming up, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s a few of the main staples to use to makeover your medicine cabinet naturally: Essential Oils – Kill bacteria, germs, fungi, and mold. Baking Soda – Scrubs, whitens, deodorizes and cuts grease. Liquid Castille Soap – Vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores (Dr. Bronner’s is a popular brand for unscented). Vinegar – Kills germs, cuts grease, deodorizes, and dissolves mineral deposits. Borax – Disinfectant. Kills germs, bacteria, fungi, and deodorizes. All the amazing essential oils that work great for cleaning, such as cypress, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, lime, marjoram, melaleuca, peppermint, and SO many more. I’ve found that when I use these natural cleaners, I get MUCH better results than I ever did with my commercial cleaners. I also had never noticed the yucky film all my commercial cleaners left behind after use. Now, no film and my cleaners are so pure that I even feel great about my children helping out with the cleaning. It’s...
Healthy Can Be Simple with Essential Oils

Healthy Can Be Simple with Essential Oils

It can be totally overwhelming to try to apply all of the masses of information about health, especially taking care of any not-fun ailments that can come around. However, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming… it can be SIMPLE by using essential oils to support your health goals!! Our family has been using essential oils for the past 4.5 years now for anything that comes up. I am a mother of 5 young children, so before using them – even in spite of using great herbs and homeopathic remedies – my kids were getting sick all of the time, spreading it to one another. I felt like we needed a punch card at the doctor’s office (1 sick child visit free for every 10 visits!!! yay!!!). However, when my husband changed jobs and we no longer had insurance, I began taking essential oils MUCH more seriously. Since that time, we haven’t needed to take any of our children to a sick child visit… for 4.5 years!  I am not exaggerating at all. I never thought we could live this way!  It’s an incredible blessing!  We are healthier than we have ever been before and it’s so DARN simple. LOVE. Now, I want every person and every home to enjoy the liberation my family enjoys daily! I’m teaching a fun {free} online class, “Healthy Can Be Simple with Essential Oils,” next Thursday, August 15, where you can learn powerful tips and tricks to use essential oils successfully as natural remedies and solutions for you and your family!  I would love for you to join me if your family could use safer,...
Best Natural Remedy for Burns: Lavender Essential Oil

Best Natural Remedy for Burns: Lavender Essential Oil

This week my 6 year old son got a BAD burn on his fingers.  Before essential oils, I would have been FREAKING OUT. Now, I can stay calm because I have the BEST natural remedy for burns in my medicine cabinet: lavender essential oil! My son’s finger tips were black from the burns.  Immediately we put on pure lavender essential oil to take the heat from the burn out.  Then we put on pure peppermint essential oil on top to cool everything off and make my son more comfortable. This + distracting him for a bit with a fun superhero show on Netflix provided IMMEDIATE relief. Phew! We have used lavender essential oil for burns many times.  It’s an oil we like to keep close to the kitchen, just in case. With lots of little kiddos running around, we can’t be too prepared for accidents. 😉 Just last week my 4-year-old was trying to “help” me cook tortillas on the skillet & she burned her arms on the skillet edge.  Right away we put on lavender & she stopped crying & there was no sign of a burn on her arms afterwards. Years ago I burned my hand really badly & put on a burn ointment from the health food store that was supposedly “100% pure.”  However, putting it on made my burn MUCH worse, making the pain nearly unbearable.  Pure lavender isn’t supposed to do that.  When I learned about how lax the FDA standards are for something to be packaged as “100% pure” I was nervous to use natural remedies, especially on burns, again. Every liter of...
Helping Your Baby “Breathe” with Essential Oils

Helping Your Baby “Breathe” with Essential Oils

I’m sure I’m not the only mom who has been up in the middle of the night with a sick baby who is so distressed from the inability to breathe through their nose.  It’s heartbreaking to see them struggle to just eat! Recently all three of my kids came down with colds and I began rubbing Breathe essential oil blend on their chests, as well as OnGuard on their feet.  It helped their stuffiness during the day, but then my 6 month old began waking in the middle of the night so congested and upset.  The only way to calm him down was to nurse him, but he couldn’t breathe and nurse at the same time! Image Credit I had the idea to swipe some Breathe on my breast, above his nose, so that he had no choice but to breathe the vapors in through his nose.  Brilliant!  Within a couple of minutes I could hear the mucus loosening up and he was able to suck it down his throat, (yep, gross, but we’ve all been there!), and breathe easily while he calmed down and happily drifted back off to sleep.  If you bottle-feed, you can put the oil on the index finger of the hand that is holding the bottle and have the same effect. I am so grateful to have the gift of natural remedies in my home.  When it’s the middle of the night, your baby is screaming, and you’re trying your best to soothe and help them, grab that bottle of Breathe (or peppermint!), and let nature work!
