Nighttime Relaxing Diffuser Blend

Bergamot is one of the brightest, sunniest important oils I know … however it’s likewise a little bit shy when it comes to being out in the sun; you see, it’s a phototoxic essential oil. Phototoxicity is a light-induced response to a photoactive material, as well as direct exposure to solid sunshine (UV light) after using the oil. What to do? Stay out of direct sunshine on the areas where you put the oil for…

9 Outrageous Oils To Make Your Life Explode

  1. “3 Wise Men” – Really?? Are there that many? I’m not so sure. The Bible doesn’t even say there were three of them back then either. However, if this is true, then they are some pretty awesome men, because it “supports emotional equilibrium as it soothes and uplifts the heart.” Teddy bears and chocolate usually do that for me, but those are far less potent than this essential oil blend. It got me…

Clove Essential Oil

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. When I get irritations on my mouth, I put helichrysum essential oil to help it, but I put Clove essential oil to get rid of the irritation. This has been used successfully inside the mouth for bothersome issues as well. I don’t…

Procrastination

The urge to put off, ignore, postpone those things we need to do. My dentist knows about that, I was supposed to go in for a checkup in April, and I finally did it last week. I knew it was the right thing to do, but I dragged my feet like a teenager asked to do just about anything. Procrastination happens when our will gets paralyzed because we don’t do what we know we should…

Be Nice To Your Liver

plush-liver-toy

Your liver is a very important organ in your body. According to WebMd.com “The liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines. The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.” Young Living Essential Oils…

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

frankincense display

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…

Snap Out Of It Recipe

Peace & Calming

I’m willing to take a stand when it comes to the notion of Peace & Calming® as a major part of my ninja mom arsenal to create an environment of harmony, agreement, calm, serenity, composure, cessation, order, pacification, reconciliation, truce, unity, congeniality, contentment, hush, lull, quiet, relaxation, repose, rest, stillness, and tranquility (I do so love thesaurus.com.) Is there anyone out there who would be opposed to these qualities in their life? Kids, teenagers, dogs,…
