My Return to Recordings

Unfortunately, at the beginning of November my family was hit with the Coronavirus and I ended up testing positive. I was blessed to be able to stay home and ride it out. However, I have had a lingering cough that is almost gone so therefore, I was not able to do any recordings. I am back now and ready to get recording again!!!

Young Living and Thieves Essential Oil

I first learned about essential oils through Young Living years ago. I knew two people who had different health issues and they found relief with the oils helped them. I was a new mom and wanted to use more natural options in our lives. That was back in 2005. Since then I have been exploring different oils, uses and have gotten certified not only as a Clinical Aromatherapist but also in different types of concentrated courses.

What I have come to learn is there are plenty of other reasonable priced options other than Young Living . Please stop using them now. I have been comparing different companies and they are by far the most expensive. If you are not sure if a company is legit or not you can send me a message and I can do a little research. I have also written another post on what to look for in oils and I now carry oils here that you can purchase. If you don’t see an oil you are interested in let me know and I can get it for you.

One other thing that I am grateful to Young Living for is being able to learn about Thieves oil and all the wonderful ways to use it. However, Young Living makes the blend for you and you are paying for that service. Here I have included what oils are in the blend so you can just make it on your own.

This blend of oils got the name from 4 thieves from Marseille who stole valuables from the sick and dying during the bubonic plague and they never got the plague. The thieves were caught and the punishment was death but the judge said he would spare their lives if they shared their secret, so they did. There are many variations but the most recent versions usually include Clove, Cinnamon bark, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Lemon.

An easy recipe is 40 drops of Clove, 35 drops of Lemon, 20 drops of Cinnamon, 15 drops of Eucalyptus and 10 drops of Rosemary. All these need to be pure essential oils, which I do sell. You mix them all together and keep in a small dark glass bottle kept in a cool place or in the refrigerator.

I add some to a spray bottle with water and some vinegar and use it to clean all my counters. I use it in my diffuser. There are so many uses for this and if you just search up Thieves oil you will get many. At Healthline they have a lot of great info. Please let me know your favorite uses and where you get your oils from.

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Essential oils were first introduced into my life when I had my first son. A desire to use more natural products that were better for all of us became prevalent. I knew so many people who were suffering from cancer and I truly began to believe that all the garbage we were eating and putting on our bodies were affecting our health.

As the years went by I began trying to treat different issues each of us were having with more natural remedies. I was diffusing oils for sleep, calming oils and just good smelling oils. When my children didn’t feel good I would rub different oils on their chests and soles if their feet. Now that they are a little older I decided to take some classes and educate myself more on all the different oils and their benefits.

In August I got certified as a clinical Aromatherapist. What is an aromatherapist? An aromatherapist is a practitioner of aromatherapy or inhalation or bodily application (as by massage) of fragrant essential oils (as from flowers and fruits) for therapeutic purposes (taken from Webster dictionary). In many states aromatherapy is not regulated and anyone can say they are an aromatherapist so you want to make sure you really look at where your information is coming from. There is so much information on essential oils that I feel like I am only scratching the surface. So please try to make sure any information you are reading about essential oils is from a reliable source.

I also want to say that when I began learning about oils I only knew of Doterra and Young Living. These are mass market companies and you will pay so much more for oils than most other places. STOP buying from them but look for a reputable oil company. Now in all companies you will have oils that cost a lot more than others. That is because of the process of obtaining the oils and how much of the product is used to yield the oil. Pure Rose oil for example is very expensive because you need 2000 lbs of rose petals to make 1lb of essential oil.

So how do you know if you are buying from a legit place or not? There are a few tell tale signs. What kind of container does the oil come in? You want a dark glass bottle to help the oils last longer. Is there a tamper proof lid and an orifice reducer inside to keep air out and allow a drop out at a time? Is the botanical name of the oil written on the label. You want to make sure the botanical name of the oil is written somewhere so you know what you are buying. Lavender is known as LAVENDULA but it can be different types such as LAVENDULA angustifolia (this is true lavender) or LAVENDULA latifolia (this is Spike lavender) or Lavandin, which can be made synthetically. Each of these lavenders have different properties so knowing the botanical name is important.

You also want to smell and feel them. If they are not pure oil you may be able to smell an additive to it or it may feel oily which means there is an additive. Essential oils do not actually feel oily. Another way is to take a white piece of paper. A pure oil will not leave a mark but an oil with an additive will leave a ring from the additive.

These are the basic ways to tell what quality oil you are buying. One last thing is that there is no medical grade oil. An oil is either a pure oil or it is not.

I will post a lot more about aromatherapy and essential oils and I hope you will join me in learning all about these great natural products that can help us in our everyday lives.
