Good Afternoon!!

The month of May has brought a mixture of weather which has brought bugs, allergies and even fungus.  Yuck!

How can you combat all of these without using toxic chemicals?

Easy!  We use essential oils!
There are so many oils that can help to repel pests like mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, mice, ants, spiders….etc.
Did you know that equal parts of Lemon Lavender and Peppermint can help with that stuffy nose and clogged sinuses caused by pollen and dust?

It’s true.  A 10 ml roller bottle of this blend, when applied to sinus areas and reflex points twice a day, can last 10-12 weeks!!
With a Wholesale Membership the oils for this 10 ml blend would be $2.72 plus about a dollar for the roller bottle (sold at many online locations).  Keep in mind this roller ball will last for 10-12 weeks when using twice per day.

Much more economical than typical over-the-counter support for allergies.

Contact me to learn how you can enjoy a wholesale membership – there is no obligation to order monthly or to sell anything.

To make your 10 ml bottle therapeutic and a dilution that is safe and effective for long term use you will need the following:

1 – 10 ml roller bottle (can be found at many places on-line)

6 drops DoTERRA Lavender Essential Oil

6 drops DoTERRA Lemon Essential Oil

6 drops DoTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil

 

Fill remainder of bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil (or other carrier oil – be sure it is an oil that has small molecules that absorb into the skin easily and help to absorb the essential oils. Avoid vegetable oils)

 

Did you know that Melaleuca (tea tree oil) is a powerful anti-fungal essential oil?  There is also a wonderful Cleansing blend that is already blended for purchase that can destroy odors in one use!  I’m not kidding here.  2 years ago our dog got sprayed by a skunk, twice within weeks of each other.  We used just 2 drops of the blend in ONE dog shampoo and the smell was completely gone!  Imagine what it can do for smelly shoes, gym bags, pet odors and more!  It can help with fungal growth as well, like shower stalls, window frames, washing machines.  And again, no toxic chemicals or ingredients.  You mix the blend with water and vinegar and spray on areas you wish to clean.  It’s that simple.

Soft Scrub for Bath, Tile, and Toilet
Make in small batches and store in an airtight container. This is enough for two to four applications. This soft scrub is excellent for getting rid of soap scum, removing stains, and brightening your tile and toilet. To use, just apply and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then scrub. Once done scrubbing, take a wet cloth and wipe clean.
Ingredients:
3/4 rounded cup baking soda
1/4 cup liquid castile soap
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vinegar
Editor’s note: Liquid castile soap is a vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores. Dr. Bronner’s is a popular one. Look for unscented. This scrub is also great to use to help clean your kitchen sink, refrigerator, or tile floors.
Directions:
  1. In bowl, combine baking soda and castile soap.
  2. Add water and stir.
  3. Add vinegar and essential oil. The consistency should be a soft paste.
  4. Store in airtight container.
  5. Add ingredients directly to partially drained bowl. As it reacts, scrub toilet.

Editors note:  You may want to look for witch hazel that is alcohol free if you will be spraying this directly onto the skin.
