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…

Blood Sugar Wars

And none of it is any fun, although it may turn our lives upside down. NingXia Red is part of any serious Ninja Mom’s arsenal against physical chaos. We do not have time for physical chaos, we have enough chaos generated by…

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…

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,…

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…

Teenager Attitudes Reversed!

Yup, you saw that right…attitudes reversed, mom of teenagers experiences relief…. film at 11:00 pm.  A Young Living Distributor with 3 teenage boys, all with special challenges, Sylvia was wayyyy past due for some respite from her daily circus of teenage attitude along with the other all-too-familiar traits of Planet Teenage Boy (PTB) citizens. The air was tense, the parents were tense, the teenagers were busy eye-rolling, nit picking at each other, not listening (“Huh?!”),…

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…

Snap Out Of It Recipe

swirly color

You may have noticed my Oil A Week isn’t quite posted this week.  Bummer week, still wishing I could put Abundance Blend on my fig tree out back and create a money tree, cuz we got a dead car, fried electrical wiring in the kitchen, and RIP to my digital camera as well.  So I’ve been strictly following this Snap Out Of It protocol which I invented: 1.  Smear Clarity oil all over my face…

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,…

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….

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…

Mold Relief

cleaning with essential oils

It’s bad enough we have to deal with dirty stinky socks, moms draw the line at the nasty intruder– mold.  You keep rubbing it out, scrubbing it out, and it still manages to creep back like some ugly black death plague invading your home.  The really twisted thing about it is they say mold doesn’t hurt anyone until it’s disturbed.  As in, removing the nasty stuff! I’m so thankful for Thieves, it’s my right-hand man…

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender slices, it dices! A boat load of uses in one little bottle of oil. After being in the sun too long, even teenagers find it useful. When mom’s have “had it” and need a major break, we diffuse it or put some in the bath, and restore our sanity.  Everybody loves it so much, Young Living has a whole Lavender Signature Series of soap, shampoo, conditioner to keep that wonderful smell surrounding you daily….

Peppermint essential oil

One of the oldest and well known oil for soothing digestion, peppermint may also support normal digestive efficiency (the whole ability to poop normal thing.). Jean Valnet MD studied peppermint’s supportive effect on the healthy liver and respiratory systems. Awesome for the Morning After The Night Before. I personally can attest that ants do not like it!  I put it on the metal threshold of my sliding glass door and the ants stopped their marching…

Basil Essential Oil

Absorbing all the information about essential oils can seem overwhelming. So I am starting a weekly series on a different essential oil each week.  Even at a weekly pace, this series will take more than 2 years to complete!  That is my point of this whole website. Nobody learns about everything overnight. One step at a time, experimenting with different oils which seem to fit you and your family’s needs, and you will soon find…
