I began using essential oils in late 2010 as I began delving into living a more natural life style. I started out by simply wanting a less expensive, safe way to keep my home clean for my babies. I began mopping my floor with melaleuca essential oil, vinegar, and water. It was so great to get rid of the chemicals (and the headache that came with them!!)! Next, I began using them to help with diaper rashes on my babies, and before I knew it, they had become an integral part of my life; so much so that I don't leave home without them!
I feel so empowered as a mother using our essential oils (and other home remedies) to keep my family in optimal health. To have a way to support our bodies in such a powerful way is so comforting to me. I also love using them to uplift my mood when stress gets the best of me. They have become such an important part of my life and I love sharing their benefits with others. Their safe and proper use is a top priority for me!

Why use essential oils?
Maybe you're already on the path to healthier living or maybe you're just getting started. Either way, the products you use in your home and on your body are just as important as the foods you eat! Essential oils are powerful, concentrated plant essences that can be used to brighten your mood, clean your home, ground yourself in the present moment, and everything in between. They're also powerful immune supporters and can be used to promote health and wellness.
How do you use essential oils?
Therapeutic grade essential oils can be used 3 different ways: aromatically, topically, and/or internally. I like to use my favorite essential oils on my wrists to boost my mood throughout the day. I also love diffusing them in my house to cleanse and purify the air, as well as uplift the environment in my home. Occasionally, I dilute them and use them internally to support my body when needing extra immune support . It is always important to dilute essential oils, especially on children, and to be educated on their safe and proper use.
Support your immune system
Essential oils can be used to clean counter tops and doorknobs, or diffused to purify stale air. Additionally, essential oils can be used topically or internally as directed to boost your body’s own natural defenses. Used aromatically, essential oils can also reduce stress, which is a key contributor to weakening the immune system.
I use a Protective Blend to support healthy immune function. A combination of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary essential oils offer a fragrant, natural, and effective alternative to synthetic options for immune support. Protective Blends are one of the most versatile blends. They are also safe to use on counter tops, as a non-toxic way to cleanse surfaces, or to clear the atmosphere by diffusing.
Frankincense is also a powerful immune enhancer. It can also be used to support a healthy response to the stresses of life, promoting a sense of calm. It has a relaxing effect on the body and is very uplifting to the mood.
Lemon offers many benefits. Not only is it a mood uplifter, but it is also a very powerful immune supporter. Some of the therapeutic properties of lemon include: anti-bacterial, anti-biotic, antiseptic, anti-viral, astringent, diuretic and disinfectant.
Oregano is often described as nature’s most potent antiseptic. Jean Valnet described oregano essential oil as one of the strongest known anti-inflammatory substances and can be powerful in reducing inflammation and thus, pain.
Melaleuca, commonly know as tea tree oil, is an ingredient of many soaps, creams, lotions, deodorants, disinfectants and air fresheners. It is one of the most powerful immune stimulant oils. It can be used to fight infections of all kinds, and is helpful in clearing the skin.
Reduce your stress and anxiety
In today’s culture we deal with many various stresses that can whittle down our immune system and make it difficult to function. Stress and anxiety have become common place for many people. Calming blends have been shown support our mood, emotions, hyperactivity, attention, panic, stress, and anxiety.
