Stop the Faucet

kleenexSo this was me for the past 3 days. Blowing my nose nonstop. Banned to the couch to sleep elevated. Desperate for sleep. Desperate to stop the constant running faucet on my face, that was a nice shade of pink, painful to the touch, and now covered with dry peeling skin. You know what I’m talking about. Oh it’s so miserable!

I was desperate to avoid using synthetic remedies. I don’t do that any more!! I threw them all out. I hate the side effects and possible harm to my body! Some of them gave me night terrors and left me feeling “high” for days! No joke! Personally, I don’t know why anyone would pay good money to feel that way, but that’s none of my business! 😉

I did everything I could think of. I do use Young Living Essential Oils, and normally they help me return to normal rather quickly. But this time was different!

So… two Kleenex boxes and a roll of toilet paper later… it hits me… NASAL SPRAY! Normally I’m not one to use it because it always burned my sinus cavities terribly. I searched for a recipe to make my own! This is what I came up with.

I found an old saline nasal spray bottle (2 oz) of my husband’s, washed out of course. (You can get a nice nasal misting bottle at your local health food store or on Amazon.) I first added a pinch of Himalayan salt. Why?  Well, the salt will help oils absorb better in the water solution and not sit on top of the water. You will still need to shake before each use though. Also, he salt to this solution will moisturize the mucosa and supports its natural regeneration, making it more difficult for the bacteria and viruses to nest and develop into an infection. Why Himalayan salt? Because it’s REAL salt with the minerals our body needs. I do not recommend the useless white table salt for this recipe. (You may wish to research the benefits of Himalayan salt vs the pretty white table salt.)

I then added 6 drops Lavender, 4 drops Frankincense, and 3 drops Tea Tree oil – all of which help to support a healthy nasal and respiratory system, and can help with seasonal relief as well. Think spring! Next I topped it off with distilled water. You want water free of any impurities, especially since you are spraying it into your head!

Recipe below.

Let me just say this……… WOW! Oh. My. Word. My nose was doing the happy dance! Why did I not do this sooner!!?? I must be a glutton for punishment and suffering!! With the first use I immediately felt 50% better. BONUS: It did not burn! It was comforting and soothing. I sprayed again just before bed. I actually slept… with my mouth shut… and no need to stuff my nose with tissue to stop the “running faucet”! TMI, I know.

I learned the hard way. Don’t do that! Make this up and get ahead of it! From now on I’ll just spray once a day, every morning, as part of my morning routine. Think preventative maintenance. It’s smart, says the gal that went through all that!! <kicking myself still>

Oh.. by the way, Lavender and Frankincense are in the Premium Starter Kit! I would recommend purchasing Tea Tree Essential Oil as a future purchase.

LIGHT BULB!! This just popped in my head! If anyone reading this blog post purchases the Premium Starter Kit through my link from now, 3/31/16 to 4/15/16, I will send you a bottle of Tea Tree Oil FREE! That’s a $34.21 retail value! You might want to jump on that before I rethink it! J/K! Killer deal, seriously! I just really want you to try this recipe! 😉

Here’s the above recipe:

I’m lovin’ the new kit!

If I weren’t already with Young Living, I’d sign up and get this kit TODAY! No joke. Seriously, this kit is perfect, in my opinion, though I was crazy about the kit available when I started.

This Premium Starter kit has the addition of Copaiba, R.C., and DiGize! No longer in the kit is Tea Tree, Citrus Fresh, and Joy… though… in the event of an out of stock oil, Young Living will substitute with one of these oils – Tea Tree, Aroma Ease, Lemongrass, Citrus Fresh or Orange. No sense in holding up your kit on one oil! Sensible decision I feel.

You also get a rollerball, literature, sample packets, oil bottles to share a sample with others, 2 samples Ningxia Red, and the fabulous Dew Drop diffuser (I’m crazy about this diffuser! They are all nice, but this one I like especially after having tried a few others. Very easy to clean!). Diffuser choices are good!

And the design… wow!! Well thought out and SO beautiful! I don’t want to take it out of it’s box now. It’s so pretty!

You get all that is pictured above for $160 plus S&H. Oh, and access to a simply fabulous group of like-minded people, here to help you on your healthy changes journey! We offer unlimited support, private forums, continuing education, webinars, online classes, your very own wholesale account to save 24% off all future orders, and more!

Label Makeover!

Oh, and let me take a moment to say this… I LOVE THE NEW LABEL DESIGN! Thank you, Young Living! Now I can see how much precious oil I have left!
