Virgo Essential Oil Blend – March

Virgo Essential Oil Blend – March 



I have been using Essential Oils for years now, and with that experience, I have created my favorite blend, which is made perfectly for Virgo’s. Virgo born people are hard workers, which in turn makes them very stressed out. They are positive most of the time, so uplifting scents are a big part of this special Virgo blend, made by me. It was developed throughout a year of trying out different scents to see which ones most affected me. If you are a Virgo, and you enjoy essential oils, this Blend will calm you down, keep your spirits up, and make you feel good. 

1. Frankincense



2. Patchouli 



3. Tangerine




4. Ylang Ylang 




5. Orange






I found this “Virgo” Blend of essential oils online and knew I must share! It’s already made so those of you who don’t have all the ingredients listed above, Thai might be a great choice.

Essential Oils for Pain 

Essential Oils for Pain



I’m a big time advocate for alternative help when it comes to pain. I have chronic back from tumbling as a gymnast and cheerleader. My back went out on me when I was just 17. Many years later, I struggle with chronic pain. I have medication, but I don’t want to use it if I don’t have to. I enjoy using essential oils to help alleviate my pain. If you are in pain, there is an essential oil that can help! 


Here is a list of essential oil’s for different types of pain, for varying pain such as: bone pain, circulation, inflammation, muscles, ligaments, and viruses



Young Living is the best Essential Oils carrier in the business! I love their oils so much more than other brands because of the ingredients it’s made from, and the concentration is much higher than other brands, leaving you needing to use less drops, thus saving you money. Not to mention their scents, I’ve always felt like their scents were much stronger than other brands that I have tried before. It is a little bit more expensive of an essential oils line, but for all of the reasons I listed above. Below is a pain Cream created by Young Living. I am going to try it after I purchase Valor, that is the only Oil I don’t have from the list.

9 DIY Shaving Cream Recipes for Men and Women

9 DIY Shaving Cream Recipes for Men and Women

I have searched ingredients in so many different shave creams, and what I’m about to share are the best, most natural recipes for a natural homemade shave. It’ll feel better than with other shave creams because of the healing ingredients that don’t strip your skin, but rather put nutrients back in, adding elasticity to the skin and leaving your body feeling oh so good afterwards. A lot of the essential oils used in these recipes are natural healing oils that keeps razor burn away, and your skin looking spectacular. You’ll make your mate especially happy with your smoothness, too. An added bonus if you will.

Essential Oils for Grief

Essential Oils for Grief

“Essential oils can provide a great sense of support and relief when we are grieving. Despite what some may think there is not an oil that works for all grief and for everyone.”





 

“Grief is something that we all experience at one time or another. It seems that the words loss and grief are tied together. Grief has many faces. Loss of a loved one, loss of a pet, loss of a friendship, loss of a relationship, loss of a job… actually loss of anything that is important to you.”

“When we are in grief we usually feel it in our heart, and so it makes sense that the chakra that is most affected is the heart chakra. We hear people say my heart hurts, my heart has been ripped open, my heart is empty.”

“Essential oils can provide a great sense of support and relief when we are grieving. Despite what some may think there is not an oil that works for all grief and for everyone.”

“The first thing to do is to look at the cause of the grief. Grief over loss of a mother is quite different than loss over a job. So we always look at the vibrational relationship for the grief when choosing essential oils to help.”

Essential Oils for Stress

Essential Oils for Stress

Spring is on its way, well it’s already here in Florida, and it’s supposed to brighten everything up. But sometimes it’s impossible to get away from the yelling of the kids, your boss at work, your partner bickering at you, hey, things get stressful. Essential Oils are a great way to relieve stress by either wearing them or diffusing them. I am a member of Young Living, so I can get discounted prices on oils and more. Young Living is the best essential oils company that I’ve ever researched or heard about. Their bottles are filled with much more potent blends and that allows you to pour less, and make it last longer. Plus, from what I’ve experienced, their oils have have a stronger scent to them. 

Here are 15 Essential Oils for Stress:








The “Stress Away” Blend is probably the best and most relevant blend of essential oils for your stress. It’s not cheap, but it’s  not too much also.  It costs $39.14 for non-member price. Members pay just $29.75. And there are 6 ingredients in it. If you were to buy all of them, it would most likely cost that much, at least. The Copaiba is $56 per bottle, just for that one ingredient. I’d look into this one if you’re having stress. Hell, for anyone, because we all get stressed out at some point. Right? 

  • Have you ever diffused? What is a diffuser? 
  • Essential Oil Diffusers, Also Known As Aromatherapy Diffusers

Diffusion is the process of dispersing essential oils so that their aroma fills a room or an area with the natural fragrance. From the simple to the elaborate, many different methods exist for diffusing essential oils into a room. Three easy methods exist which can be done with things you probably already have in your household. In addition, there are numerous diffusers and diffusing devices available for purchase. Young Livig is just my personal preference.

Essential Oils for Autism

Essential Oils for Autism

 “More and more we are hearing about essential oils and the benefits of using them. Some time ago, I remember reading a thread in a private autism parents group. The gist was divided; half were for essential oils, half thought it was just another waste of time. Some parents even had the misconception that people were touting essential oils can “cure” autism.”

“Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) symptoms are severe mood shifts from periods of highs with energy and activity (manic) to lows with lethargy, sadness or hopelessness (depression). These moods swings are more severe than the normal ups and downs many experience in life.
Symptoms of this disorder usually begin in the late teenage and early adult period of life (15-25) and equally effect males and females. There seems to be some connection between having this disorder and a history of it in one’s family. Although this condition is thought to be a long-term illness many report that with proper help they are living comfortable and productive lives.”

“Diffuser Recipe: Use appropriate number of drops from your recipe in your diffuser by following the manufacturer’s guidelines.”

“Inhalation: Use your desired recipe and rub 1-2 drops on your hands and inhale. You can also inhale directly from a bottle, but be aware that oxygen can affect the oils, so only keep them open to the air for short periods of time.”

“Bath Oil/Salts: Add about 15 drops of your chosen recipe in your bath. Mix well and use normally. For bath salts, add 10-15 drops to 1/4 cup of baking soda or Epsom salts and allow to sit overnight, add to your bath and enjoy.
Massage Oil: Take 8 drops of your recipe and mix it with 20ml of carrier oil (ex: coconut oil).”

“Air Freshener: Fill a spray bottle with either 1.5 ounces of distilled water and or 3 ounces of distilled water. Then, add 30-40 drops of your chosen recipe. The aroma can change after the air freshener has had time to sit so it is best to make in small batches and use within 48 hours. Shake the bottle once before each use. Spray lightly in the chosen room. Be careful not to allow the air freshener mist to fall on your furniture, as some oils may stain.”
