8 Kinds of Awesome

Helichrysum is full of awesomeness. It’s in one of my favorite blends,  Deep Relief. A little bit earthy, a little bit herby, its invigorating aroma can chase away the sluggish energy in a room. And that’s just the start of the dozens of ways this essential oil is a multitasking all-star. Helichrysum flowers are sometimes called Immortelle, or the Everlasting Flower, possibly because of the way its essential oil can smooth the appearance of fine…

Clove 3524

Here is one of my favorites especially for blocking irritations of the mouth and lips. Clove is the natural blocking agent used for dental work before humans synthesized it into a chemical compound.

This has been used successfully inside the mouth for bothersome issues as well. I don’t…

Vetiver Essential Oil

 Vetiver Essential Oil: This ninja mom puts vetiver essential oil on her big toes every day to fight that nasty nemesis………Uh, I don’t remember, I got distracted. Adults & ninja moms can suffer from this lousy problem, it’s not limited to fidgety elementary school kids. We just show it differently, since we can’t get up and run around the classroom a lot. Feeling “scattered.” Hard to concentrate (never mind the toddler jumping all over you…

We carry negative energies on our liver. Kinda makes sense, since the liver is the place that cleans out all the “junk” from our bodies. Release essential oil blend is good for exactly that – releasing – anger and frustration from the liver to support normal emotional well being.  Release blend is one of the most powerful oils supporting emotional well being. I would be remiss if I didn’t pass on to you what I learned…

Any mom with teenagers can recognize the teenage need for emotional support and stability. As I like to say about the mood swings: “Are we up, or are we down?” Here is a tried and true method for keeping on top of that emotional roller coaster called adolescence. Chocolate chip cookies are also highly recommended.

Di-Gize Blend

Nothing can trash a great outing with kids like tummy complaints. Di-Gize essential oil blend is the standard I reach for, whether it’s kids, myself, or a friend.  My kids knew which oil this one was when they were little (right up there with Peace & Calming, another ninja mom lifesaver.)  Di-Gize blend is my starting point, as in “put this on while I figure out if there’s anything else I wanna use.”  It’s been…

Abundance Essential Oil Blend

abundance blend stylized

Abundance Blend is a good-stuff magnet. Our thoughts and intentions enhanced by fragrance create a positive environment called the “law of attraction” which basically means you are open to good stuff and good stuff is attracted to you. The shift in our hearts and minds toward a sense of abundance and gratitude rather than scarcity is a powerful working force in our lives. Most people tend to live from a sense of never having enough,…

Melrose Essential Oil Blend

Melrose essential oil blend

Melrose essential oil blend is my go-to solution for maintaining a wellness lifestyle. This blend contains four essential oils with some heavy duty properties that support normal, healthy body functioning. Melrose is my knee-jerk answer when it comes to mastering a wellness lifestyle.

Forgiveness Blend

forgiveness

Forgiveness is one of those oil blends that I would dump all over everyone I could, much as I feel the need to dump Common Sense blend on every passing teenager. As I get older, I’ve become more aware of all the “garbage” of hurt feelings, misunderstandings and offenses rolling around in my emotional baggage. I don’t care what airline you fly on, this kind of baggage costs too much for what its worth.

Trauma Life Blend

I carry Trauma Life Blend around in my purse every day. No, I’m not a hysterical person, and I don’t live in a war zone or in eminent danger of any particular kind. Be careful how you respond to the word “trauma“.  The word originally implied “unpleasant experience which causes stress.” (dictionary.com)  Having teenagers constitutes trauma.  My kids will certainly tell you that an upcoming oral report or exam constitutes trauma.  When my kids go…

Frankincense Essential Oil

For spiritual awareness, prayer, and meditation, Frankincense essential oil stands alone in its power. This makes sense to me, as people from different religions have highly valued and respected it for thousands of years. Not only is it amazing in spiritual uplifting and strengthening, it’s also used by quite a few ninja moms for the appearance of incredibly soft, smooth, skin. Frankincense essential oil is my go-to oil that I use as a layer along…
