Calm Down and then Some!

The aromatic smell of lavender can do so much! This powerful scent can settle a baby, help you relax, calm an ADHD child. This is one oil I diffuse regularly in the classroom. I have seen the most active child settle after diffusing this! It is a wonderful oil to use during yoga and meditation!

The Nose Knows

I have not found an appliance I have been more in love with! Love my Keurig, microwave, hair dryer, Crock Pot and Magic Bullet, but none hold a candle to my Home Diffuser!

Never heard of a diffuser? Neither had I before July 2013 until I entered the world of essential oils. And now I CAN NOT live without one! This is what it is! It combines a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy that safely releases essential oils into the air to eliminate odors and create a spa-like atmosphere. Sounds glorious right? Well let me tell you it is! What one product can take you back to your childhood, put you to sleep, help you when you are sick? None… The key is in the nose!

diffuser

The olfactory system includes all physical organs or cells relating to, or contributing to, the sense of smell. When we inhale through the nose, airborne molecules interact with the olfactory organs and, almost immediately, the brain.

Molecules inhaled through the nose or mouth are also carried to the lungs and interact with the respiratory system. Thus, inhaled essential oils can affect the body through several systems and pathways.

Interaction with the Limbic System (Emotional Brain)

During inhalation, odor molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, one of which is the limbic system, which is commonly referred to as the “emotional brain.”

The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance (Higley & Higley, 1998). This relationship helps explain why smells often trigger emotions. Knowing this, we can hypothesize how inhalation of essential oils can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects!

“Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived.” Helen Keller

So, depending on the oil you place in the diffuser the reaction of the body is different.

Once taking 2 different sleep medications now just Cedarwood Oil, Peace and Calming Oil (tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli and blue tansy), valerian root and melatonin I can get a great night’s sleep. This was something I once thought an impossibility without a script! Natural products allow me to function daily with a clear brain. two years ago I would have NEVER believed this to be possible.

I now have 3 diffusers! One in my bedroom for sleep, kitchen for the common areas and in my classroom (my home away from home).

CAUTION: I had someone who had heard me talk about my diffuser and they ordered one online. Within a week theirs had broken and they wanted to know how long mine lasted. All I can say is Young Living’s diffusers come with a 1 Year warranty. I would NOT be buying mine online from Amazon or from Whole Foods as I like that I can return it within a year if it were to break. I can say my first two diffusers, that are over a year a still going strong. My latest one the Bamboo Diffuser used EVERYDAY!!

From the scent of Christmas with cinnamon and orange to sleepy scents like cedarwood, Peace and Calming and Lavender to waking up with Lemon and Peppermint I will NEVER be without one of these handy appliances again. Addicted? YES!!!!!

Peppermint-Energy Booster and Then Some

As I stumbled into the world of Essential Oils I quickly came to learn that one single oil can target so many ailments. Peppermint is the BIG DADDY of them all when it comes to what it can do for a body!

My first success and or course surprise came when I had a bellyache. I rubbed JUST A DROP of this oil on my belly and within a few minutes my tummy began to settle!! Say What? A DROP? Well you know I had to repeat that little experiment again a few days later and BAM! Tummy ache gone again. Living with Lymphocytic Colitis is like a roller coaster and this oil helped slow down that roller coaster. So I set out to explore the uses of this magical little oil.

Peppermint

Check it out!!!! Really QUITE Unreal!!!! So many uses! This is what I found!

Peppermint oil uses are widely varied as the oil is versatile non-toxic non-irritating oil. Here are some of the peppermint oil uses from head to toe.

Being antiseptic in nature, peppermint oil massaged on the scalp helps to remove dandruff and head lice in addition to its usual soothing cooling effect.

For relief from headaches, inhale a few drops of peppermint oil sprinkled onto a handkerchief or dabbed on your wrists.

Applied to your face, peppermint oil keeps pimples away making blemish free healthy skin.

To relive nasal congestion from a cold, rub peppermint oil on the chest or add a few drops to a vaporizer.

Get rid of toothaches and bad breath when adding a couple drops of peppermint oil to your toothpaste. The oil has also been used in the treatment of gum disease.

The menthol in peppermint oil will help clear the respiratory tract. Acting as an expectorant it provides relief during a bout of coughs and colds, along with more serious asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, and tuberculosis. The oil has also been used for vertigo and fainting.

Use peppermint oil for indigestion by adding a few drops in a glass of warm water and drinking it after your meal. The oil helps to ease bowel spasms, dispel gas, Cholera, irritable bowel syndrome, colic, morning sickness, diarrhea and nausea. As well as being the best antidote for an upset stomach.

The cooling properties of peppermint oil benefit by removing muscle pain. It has also been used to treat rheumatism, aching feet, menstrual pain, and neuralgia.

Many skin problems such as inflammation, itchiness, scabies, dermatitis, ringworm, and sunburn can be helped with a peppermint oil treatment as well.

Peppermint oil is also used topically to treat stress. At the end of a grueling, long and tiring day, treat yourself to a soak in the bath or shower after applying some drops of peppermint oil to your body. The energized results are due to the refreshing properties of the oil.
