My new favorite…

Ok, ok… How can anyone have just one favorite essential oil? For me, that’s impossible. I have been aware of this blend from nearly day one, (I’ve been using Young Living EO’s for 15 months now) but it has now gotten my full attention and I’m not really sure why.

rcI have been told by several people that over time, your body will tell you which oil to grab for. Crazy sounding, I know, but it’s true. Listen to your body! Lately, my body has been telling me to reach this one…  R.C. !

What is in R.C. essential oil? There are nine different essential oils in Young Living’s R.C. Blend. They are listed below along with a brief description of each oil.

  • Eucalyptus Globulus – one of many eucalyptus essential oils.  It is primarily used to support the respiratory system; and to soothe muscle discomfort after exercise.
  • Eucalyptus Radiata – one of many eucalyptus essential oils.  It is primarily used to for cleansing and purifying.
  • Eucalyptus Citriodora – contains 40-80% citronellal and has several chemotypes.
  • Myrtle – supportive of the respiratory system, skin, and hair, it has been researched for its effects on glandular imbalances. It is also helpful for meditation and lifting the spirit.
  • Pine – first investigated by Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, pine is soothing for stressed muscles and joints when used in massage. Eucalyptus globulus shares some of the same properties, and the action of both oils is synergistic when they are blended.
  • Marjoram – beneficial for occasional simple nervous tension.
  • Lavender – can help you relax, wind down before bed and even ease stress. Its balancing properties create a relaxing and harmonizing environment.
  • Cypress – beneficial for oily or troubled skin. Grounding and gets things moving!
  • Peppermint – one of the most highly regarded herbs for supporting normal digestion, including promoting healthy intestinal function and gastrointestinal system comforts.
  • Tsuga – from the Canadian Hemlock Tree. The oil is distilled from the needles and twigs of conifer trees.

What a powerhouse blend … And it smell soooo good! 

Rub R.C. on your feet or chest before exercise to uplift and inspire, or massage three drops on your feet before bedtime to encourage an atmosphere of comfort. R.C. can also be used in place of Aroma Siez™ in Young Living’s Raindrop Technique®.

I especially love to apply it on each side of my nose in the morning to really wake me up and harmonize my respiratory system! Try it! It’s one of 11 essential oils in the Premium Starter Kit.

I wish you were here in person to experience R.C. for yourself. I’d gladly share it with you! I think you would agree how energizing this blend is.

This pic makes me sad.

I never go down this aisle any more. No need to. This pic makes me sad.

Countless pills being popped every day. That was me. That was my family. Thankfully I wasn’t one to take them every day, but I personally know many that do, for countless reasons. Now I’m not bashing all that man has created. There is a place for it for sure. Modern medicine has saved countless lives. In no way am I telling you to quit taking your meds!! You will never hear me advise that.

Wise words.
Wise words.

The point I’m trying to get to is this… why do we look to synthetics first? Have we as a society gotten so lazy that we just want someone to “fix” us? Sad to say, but the answer is resounding YES! We are so busy that we don’t want to address the WHY… the root cause of an issue. Most want to put a bandaid on it and go about their business. The trouble with bandaids… they don’t stick for very long and they are not a cure.

It is proven that every man-made drug causes side effects, some extremely dangerous… even deadly.  If it doesn’t kill us right away, we end up with another side effect for which we need another prescription… and then we have to deal with more side effects. A vicious cycle. Why are we ok with that?

I know this is a sensitive topic that is bound to step on a few toes. I’ve never been one to candy-coat anything. Sorry.

The answer to my question: Because we are lazy and/or we as a society want to keep our head in the sand. WE DON’T WANT TO KNOW!! (This applies to many topics… world events, politics, life choices, spirituality … the list is endless… but I won’t go there today.)

Life is easier not knowing… not having to face reality and truth. If we listen we are forced to do something with the information we have received. We can accept it and apply it… and actually DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT… or we reject it and go back to our norm.

Here’s a list of possible side effects from taking Motrin listed on the FDA’s website: List Motrin side effects by likelihood and severity.

Another list of possible side effects from Advil: List Advil side effects by likelihood and severity.

Sure the serious side effects say that are less common or “infrequent”… but what if you are one that takes them every day, or even every other day? What about the damage to your liver alone?

I found this on the FDA’s website. I did not know they decreased the maximum amount of acetaminophen in these products to 325 mg per tablet. Last I knew it was 500 mg. (See I told you I was never one to take OTC’s) Per their website, they answer the question as to why they are lowering it… they say, the “FDA continues to receive reports of severe liver injury associated with the use of acetaminophen-containing products. The greatest risk for severe liver injury happens when people take more than the prescribed dose of acetaminophen, take more than one acetaminophen-containing product at the same time, or drink alcohol while taking acetaminophen. Severe liver injury can lead to liver failure, liver transplant, and death.” 

Here’s the link to read for yourself: Questions and Answers about Oral Prescription Acetaminophen Products to be Limited to 325 mg Per Dosage Unit

Their website is actually a great resource to find the side effects of any particular med, however I still recommend further research to gather ALL THE FACTS.

My husband had a liver transplant in 2010 as a result of Wilson’s Disease, which had taken it’s toll on his liver and it could no longer regenerate. (He has had a MIRACULOUS recovery, from the hand of God. The doctors were simply His instruments. Perhaps I’ll blog about that soon as I do love to tell the story!) Any way, the doctors at U of M told us in our pre-op classes that the #1 reason for liver transplants was liver failure caused by these meds!!

And, I don’t give a rat’s hiney about recommended doses. Slight damage vs severe damage… I want NO damage done to my liver, thank you very much!

What if the person taking the “recommended dose” is on another meds?  What if that person drinks alcohol? What if they do not drink enough water? Most do not drink enough water to flush the system…. causing all organs to not get proper hydration. (I’m always telling everyone to DRINK WATER! I know I drive people nuts… oh well!)

Also, per their website, they say, “even a small amount more than directed can cause liver damage.”

They also say, “You may not notice the signs and symptoms of liver damage right away because they take time to appear. Or, you may mistake early symptoms of liver damage (for example, loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting) for something else, like the flu. Liver damage can develop into liver failure or death over several days.”

Here’s the link: Acetaminophen and Liver Injury: Q & A for Consumers

Did you know about a recent recall of Children’s Tylenol? And they “… pleaded guilty to a federal charge that it sold contaminated medication for nearly a year after uncovering the issue.” HUH? Yep. Maker of Infant’s & Children’s Tylenol, Motrin To Pay $25M For Selling Meds With Metal Particles

And the people are gently rocked back to sleep… 

Well not this gal!! Since my husband’s surgery in 2010, we have been on quite the journey towards better health! Boy have we come along way! Would I like to “unknow” what I know? Sometimes, yes! My studies and research have uncovered all kinds of things that are frightening… such as GMO’s, the food industry, how meat is raised, chemicals in everything, and so much more! But as I stated, now that I KNOW what I know …. I am forced to do something with this knowledge… which quite frankly, I believe it was God that showed me.

I am absolutely SOLD OUT on the fact that our health is a GIFT FROM GOD! I have been convicted that I need to take care of my body… the temple in which the Holy Spirit resides. Do I eat a perfect diet and exercise all the time? Um, no. I am not and refuse to become obsessed with this type of lifestyle … that would steal my joy as it’s almost impossible to avoid every exposure to toxins. We live in a contaminated world. Period. I treat myself, in moderation.

I think of this verse often when I think of my body being the temple where the Holy Spirit resides. “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.  Yes, I take that verse for what it plainly says and it is my conviction that I do not have the right to do with my body anything I please.

And while I’m on the topic of being Spiritually led to take care of our bodies, let’s talk about gluttony. Watch your toes. I warned you. Sorry, but we can’t have a discussion about better health without looking to the SOURCE!!

The definition of gluttony: The sheer defiance of reasonable and balanced behavior; habitual greed or excess in eating or drinking.

Gluttony can apply to many different areas, but today I’m just applying it to how it can have a negative effect on our health.

In my bible it says this about the glutton:

  • Prov 23:21 “For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”
  • Deut 22:20 “… This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.”

Drowsiness, stubborn, rebellious… well that certainly doesn’t sound positive does it? Here’s an online article I found on this topic, which I wholeheartedly agree with: Gluttony: Sin of Lust and Greed.

Benjamin Franklin said of man’s proneness to overeat, In general, mankind, since the improvement of cookery, eats twice as much as nature requires.”

I should have said this earlier in this post. I better say it now. I know that having a weight issue is often a side effect of certain health issues and or could be an inherited concern. I get that and do not condemn it. If I come across mean-spirited or judgmental, I apologize. That is not my intent.

What I am hoping to convey is this:  We can all do better! We should all WANT to do better. We can all do something! Doing something is better than doing nothing. We can all make better choices! No one is force feeding us.

Self inflicted obesity, pain and misery is… well…  that’s just plain sad! I don’t want any one to have to live like that. All I can do is pray and try to help. That is the reason for my blog. It’s not to simply talked about essential oils. Sure the oils can help, but you have to address other areas in order to get the most benefit.

We live in the age of information. It’s at our fingertips! If you are reading this, you have no reason to say you didn’t know better. Back in the day, before computers, yes there were books on these topics, but still … most of us didn’t know. We took the “professionals” word as gold. We did as we were told, blindly trusting. Well that day is gone!

I was that person. I was blind.  I did as I was told, not questioning anything. I looked to synthetics first. We ate fast food often. We drank pop by the case per week. I bought frozen, mass produced, prepared and packaged food from the local bulk warehouse and really believed I was doing a good thing. After all, it tasted good and saved me time. I’m so thankful my blinders have been RIPPED OFF!

And if you come back with this comment … “Well, you gotta die of something!”… I will delete it and block you! Now I’m being harsh, I know. But seriously… don’t say that!! I have heard that way too many times and it goes right through me! Yes, we will all die!! A fact, no doubt. However, Lord willing, we can die in good health, of natural causes. We don’t have to give in to the “norm” and do what everyone else is doing. I know my days are numbered, but if I can help it, I don’t want to die in agony I brought on myself.

Stop eating it!
Stop eating it!

What if there was something that you could do to feel better than didn’t involve crap food and synthetic meds? Would you try it? Are you willing to make changes? I hope so.

Since my family has focused on diet, food quality, exercise (we still are not consistent in this area because of busy schedules.. an excuse, yep. I’m guilty and own it.) … and we have been using Young Living Essential Oils and other products for over a year now, we have been amazingly healthy!!!

Let me say this… I will ONLY use essential oils from Young Living. They are of the utmost highest quality and frequency! What to learn more about that? Get your hands on this book by Dr. David Stewart, The Chemistry of Essential Oils. It goes into great detail about the chemistry off essential oils. Simply fascinating!! Don’t buy the lie that all oils are the same. They simply are not! I have not used or purchased OTC’s in over a year now nor am I on any prescribed meds at the age of 47. Coincidence? I think not. The oils AND life style changes work!!!

Make Your Own Soap!

Hey everyone. Today I’m going to tell you how to make this liquid handsoap. It’s so easy! In fact, I have no reason to claim as to why I put it off for this long. “Why, Wendy, why?” I ask myself that often.

Any way… I’m sure glad I saved these foaming soap dispensers! You can buy them online on Amazon or visit your local Bath and Beyond store… or you can save them or ask your friends or family to save them for you. If you do that, be sure to show them how simple it is to make their own… lol… then maybe they will do the same and stop using the BAD-FOR-YOU chemical-filled soap from the store!

This recipe is real simple. You probably won’t need to write it down.

  • 2 Tablespoons of liquid Castile Soap (You can use Dr. Bronner’s. I found this brand on Amazon; great reviews and it was a little cheaper.)
  • 8 to 10 drops of whatever Essential Oil that floats your boat! (I only use Young Living, and today I’m using Thieves! Great germ killer!)
  • Top with water! This dispenser is 8 oz.

Now shake & use! That’s it!! Nice foamy soap that smells great!! I told you this would be simple! … and a great savings too! I’m all being frugal, except for when it comes to a few things… and that would be food, drink, personal care products, health products, and my ESSENTIAL OILS!

Other essential oils I might use in the future when I refill my soap dispensers would be Rosemary, Orange, Lemon, Purification, or Lavender. I think Thieves with Orange, Rosemary with Orange or Lemon would be great combos, or Lavender and Lemon too! Looking forward to trying these combos next time!

If you do not have essential oils, I can help you with that! Learn about Young Living’s HIGH standards and distillation process here: SEED TO SEAL

Visit my page Let’s Get You Started!  After that, we will get you plugged into our online private groups for additional education, training and support… as we really want you to know how and to feel confident in using your oils! I also love to send special welcome packages to all I introduce to Young Living. If you have any questions, just let me know.

I can’t wear perfume anymore

Since I starting using essential oils a little over one year ago, I can’t wear perfume any more. I threw it all away, including all the Bath & Body lotions & potions too! (TOXIC!! But that’s a blog post for another day.)

I have noticed that my “sniffer” has changed it’s “smeller”… lol! Corny, I know, but seriously… I can no longer tolerate artificial fragrances, including most candles. Not bashin’ the candle-lovers out there! I was one too! But now they just highly irritate me and send my sinuses into orbit!

There were a few essential oils I could NOT stand when I was first introduced to Young Living. Over time I have realized that the oils I hated I now LOVE!! … or at least like a whole lot better! One such oil – Cedarwood. I cringed when smelling it and at that time agreed with a few people I know when they described it as “cat pee”. However, after reading in several essential oil reference books on the amazing benefits of Cedarwood… I kept trying it, mixing it with Orange EO or Lavendar EO.

Guess what…? I LOVE CEDARWOOD NOW! It’s deep and earthy, like fresh cut wood in a forest. I just adore it! I’ve heard it said that if you despise an EO you probably need it. I would say I agree with that.

So… what’s a gal to do about smelling good? What does one wear if they can no longer wear or tolerate perfume? Make your own!

I got these super cool green (my favorite color) glass roller ball bottles in bulk on Amazon. Click here to see the bottles I ordered. Good to have on hand to whip up all kinds of blends for many different needs! FCO stands for fractionated coconut oil.

Yes, I made my own fragrance today. I typically use Young Living’s JOY blend as my everyday perfume, which I ADORE, but I was looking for something different, something new. So I came up with this concoction.

I call it my “Feel Good” Fragrance. I know, not real original. I was in a hurry to label it as I didn’t want to get it mixed up with hubby’s seasonal mix.

I must say, it REALLY smells good! My 18 yr old daughter loves it too! And it’s so much more than just smelling good here too! Another huge bonus to using essential oils vs artificial fragrance!

I’d love to go into great detail on everything I’ve learned about each Young Living Essential Oil I put in this fragrant blend… but I’m not legally able to do so. I highly encourage you to get your hands on some good reference materials and look up the benefit of each on your own.

What I can say about each oil is this:

Ylang Ylang is extremely effective in calming and bringing about a sense of relaxation. It may also help with releasing feelings of anger and assist with getting rid of negative feelings. In addition, it has a long history in skin- and hair-care products—particularly in Asia, where it is used to promote luxuriant hair.

Frankincense includes the naturally occurring constituent boswellic acid, and has a woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma. Diffuse Frankincense during meditation for grounding and purpose. Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin, and is excellent to use for massage after activity. (Oh my, this description doesn’t do this oil justice! Please know that NOT all EO’s are the same!! Many are adulterated with synthetics, watered down, and not distilled correctly and the FREQUENCY is not at it’s highest, such as with Young Living’s. Do your own research!) 

Vetiver has a heavy, earthy fragrance similar to patchouli with a touch of lemon. Vetiver oil is psychologically grounding, calming, and stabilizing. One of the oils that is highest in sesquiterpenes, vetiver was studied by Dr. Terry Friedmann for improving children’s behavior. Vetiver may help when coping with stress and to recover from emotional trauma and shock.

Orange essential oil includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene, which aids in maintaining normal cellular regeneration.  Did you know that Orange Essential Oil contains 85-95% limonene? It has the highest level of d-limonene next to grapefruit oil! (A great topic to read up on!) Orange EO has calming effects and may be used for feelings of peace.

Use Essential Oils for perfume to improve your emotional and physical well being! Imagine if you could wear (or make) a perfume (or cologne) that was non-toxic to the body and actually could help you manage your stress level, or help you feel more confident. Well… you can make your own! If I can do this, so can you! Have fun with this! Try different combinations. Let the oils speak to you!

*** update 7/2/15 – I added 5 drops of Ocotea EO for good measure, plus I love it’s fragrance… and it’s soo good for my body! … and… I had to make my daughter her OWN rollerbottle because she would not stop asking for mine several times a day! She says she’s addicted to it!

About OCOTEA: Extracted from an Ecuadorian tree, ocotea has the highestlevel of alpha humulene of any Young Living essential oil, which is a compound that helps aid the body’s natural response to irritation and injury.* Ocotea also has natural cleansing and purifying properties.

Today’s personal care products, such as our soaps, hair goods and household cleaners, are simply synthetically made products that further pollute our bodies and our planet!

Did you know that approximately 98% of the essential oils produced today are for the perfume industry?

Yes, so by simple math, that leaves 2% for medicinal or therapeutic use. Perfume grade oils are cut with solvents or distilled through a solvent extraction process to save time and money, so all their therapeutic effects are lost.

And this is why you will hear me say over and over… all essential oils are NOT the same! I did about three months of research before making my choice.

I would LOVE to be the one to share Young Living Essential Oils with you! To get started, CLICK HERE! I highly recommend the NEW Premium Starter Kit! If you have any questions, please ask!

My dog had a “episode”

RosiePosieSee this sweet dog. Her name is Rosie (aka Rosie Posie) and she’s been with us one year this month. Rosie is a purebred Australian Shepherd and she turned 10 yrs old this past January. Her previous owner passed away and the daughter worked too many hours and didn’t feel it was right for Rosie to be alone all day. It was a fluke that I came across the rescue post… or was it? I like to think it was meant to be! The decision to adopt a senior pet is one of the best we’ve ever made! Yes, that’s my plug for pet adoption/rescue! Do it if you can!

Back to what I was saying… yesterday Rosie walked, or should I say, wobbled into the kitchen and appeared disoriented and scared. I knew instantly she was having “convulsion” activity. We’ve seen this before. Over 15 yrs ago we had a retriever named Zeke that suffered from this. I’ve learned alot since then!

I instantly asked my daughter to grab my Frankincense Essential Oil.  I don’t know if I applied it right, but it worked! I put several drops in my hands and rubbed it on her rear paws. Then as I laid on the floor with her I put my hand near her nose so she would gently inhale the oil fragrance. I had my hand about 6 to 8 inches away as I know a dog’s nose is super sensitive. She tolerated it surprisingly well, in fact, I believe it calmed her down in addition to stopping the convulsing.

Why did I use Frankincense? 

Well, I’ve studied essential oils for a year now… the same length of time I’ve been with Young Living. Frankincense is known as “the big guns”. What a power house of an oil! I have several reference books and have studied at great length. I suggest you do the same!

I have many reference books. If you would like to know what books I refer to, please contact me.

And why did I apply Frankincense to her paws?

When essential oils are applied with pressure to the reflex (or vita-flex) points, electrical impulses are released. These impulses carry the essential oils up the nerve pathway and into specific areas of the body. This in turn releases energy to support the systems of the body. (Looking at this Vita Flex chart I now notice the spot  for application concerning the brain. Rosie got all points yesterday.)

Vita-Flex points work for us humans too! Have a runny nose? Apply a few EO’s to your feet, focusing on the toes! Crazy? I know! But it works!!

In my studies on Frankincense I have learned it is the Essential Oil of choice for any kind of brain disorder. What a fascinating oil that God has given us!!

Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil
Young Living’s Frankincense

Frankincense has a molecular makeup that includes sesquiterpenes, that are able to cross the blood/brain barrier. These sesquiterpenes stimulate the limbic system of the brain and other glands within the brain, promoting memory and releasing emotions. (This oil has also been a huge relief for me concerning my own emotional needs!) Frankincense slows down and deepens the breath.

The therapeutic properties of Frankincense oil are antiseptic, astringent, carminative, cicatrisant, cytophylactic, digestive, diuretic, expectorant, sedative, expectorant and more.

You can do your own research on Frankincense. Personally, I only use and recommend Young Living Essential Oils (YL’s is proven to be the highest frequency because of their Seed to Seal process! Essential oils are not all the same! Don’t buy that lie!) because of their integrity and commitment to purity. Visit Seed to Seal to learn more…. and you’ll see why I will use nothing but Young Living! “Seed to Seal” – It’s not just a slogan.

Young Living’s latest blog post about essential oils and pets: Essential Oils and Pets: A Quick How-To

As for Rosie’s activity we witnessed yesterday… my plan is to apply the Frankincense a few times a week, maybe every other day… and wait and see. I’ll keep you posted as to if she has one again… or maybe she won’t?

Rosie – you are only 10 yrs old and we love you so much!  We knew our time would be limited with you from day one, but know this… we will do our best to keep you healthy so you can enjoy your golden years to the fullest.
