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…

Orange Essential Oil

I love essential oils that are versatile like orange. It slices, it dices! Furniture polish to alert teenagers with smooth skin, stress-be-gone to bug offender. This stuff is good. It also happens to be budget-friendly. Have you noticed how many cleaning products on the market use orange oil? With pure therapeutic grade essential oil, I have control over what else I mix with it. I don’t mix with chemicals that I can’t pronounce, or nasty…

Harmony Essential Oil Blend

Well known for balancing and grounding properties, Harmony essential oil blend is my favorite to diffuse in order to calm the troops, establish world peace, and reduce cranky siblings from getting on each other’s last nerve. The spruce essential oil in Harmony blend is suppose to be the same frequency as prosperity—bring it on! Some have suggested applying it to sternum as well as inhaling this blend directly for a similar effect.

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…

R.C. Essential Oil Blend

I tried to find out what R.C. stands for in R.C. essential oil blend. Couldn’t find anything. Maybe it stands for Really Cool, which it is.  R.C. blend is my go-to oil for any normal, healthy breathing that I want to do as a part of my wellness lifestyle.

Release Blend

release anger

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…

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…

Angelica Essential Oil

angelica plant

Angelica essential oil (Angelica archangelica) has soothing qualities that are relaxing. In Germany, angelica was historically referred to as the “oil of angels,” in part because of its ability to calm, restore happy memories, and bring peaceful sleep. Useful for normal, healthy digestive and respiratory support. Angelica is rejuvenating and energizing for ninja moms, particularly following having a normal, healthy childbirth. Emotionally, angelica essential oil can have a grounding effect for persons prone to being…

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,…

Grounding Essential Oil Blend

Grounding essential oil blend is an excellent aroma when working with people who are hurting emotionally, including yourself. This essential oil blend causes a sense of confidence to cope with reality in a better way.  I used it myself in grad school, when I knew there would be emotionally intense topics such as domestic violence and child abuse. The Grounding blend helped me stay in touch with myself, balanced and centered, even though I was…

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. If the potential for grossness is there, you know what I mean, kid stepped in what after falling down? Just because it “looks” clean, doesn’t mean it is, as ninja moms know…

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…

Clarity 3321 bottle

Be Alert. The world needs more Lerts. The world definitely needs more alert moms, and alert teenagers would be a huge blessing to society at large.

As beautiful as this is, it is also crucial that all drivers are alert and awake at…

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…

Valor Essential Oil Blend

I noticed another Young Living enthusiast/ninja like myself gushing that they wanted to “smear Valor all over myself.” This is not particular to Valor Blend at all, I find that often the concept of smearing [insert YL oil here] comes bursting out of someone who has experienced the amazing-ness of these oils. It is our deep desire for more of that which is good, excellent, exquisite and extraordinary. I could write books on the technical…

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,…

PanAway Essential Oil Blend

Moms with teenagers are surely aware of the extreme need to make the overabundance of pans go away. Some might say that Young Living came through once again for desperate housewives suffering from too much cookware, but they would be wrong. Apparently, anything that supports our bodies in response to the word “ouch” is considered medicinal and regulated by the FDA. I must be under that jurisdiction, as when any “body” in my family cries…

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon Vitality* is one of those can’t go wrong essential oils, put a drop in a pitcher of water and drink it right up. It supports normal, healthy memory, if I could only remember that part. The fragrance of lemon essential oil promotes clarity of thought & purpose, as well as being invigorating and enhancing to my mood, and that’s a good thing.  Make lemonade with it using Blue Agave (Item No. 3221) natural sweetener….

Helichrysum Essential Oil

Even when other oils are indicated topically, I make sure I have at least one layer of helichrysum on it. Some European scientist guys studied it for supporting normal circulation and skin. I love it on my skin.  Helichrysum supports normal healthy liver function, which makes sense as it is a detoxifier. The liver does a lot of important stuff, so a happy healthy liver makes a happy healthy me. By supporting my liver and…

Purification Essential Oil Blend

This is my favorite oil to carry with me when going to any hotel, along with an empty small spray bottle. I put water in the spray bottle, put in about 10 drops of Purification, shake it up, and spray away that eau de hotel. I’ve watched enough news programs to know that I don’t want to risk what may be lurking on the bedspread, walls, closet, etc. around my family. I spray them with…
