An Oilers Musings: Cold Remedy Tea, Peppermint to the Rescue, Bug Spray Kills Ants, Purification really Purify and Dragon Time for Ladies :)

Hello Fellow Oilers,
Our family is headed down to LA for a week vacation to celebrate my Dad’s birthday and spend time as a family together as well. Thus the delayed post.:) This will be my only post for this week and next week I will post toward the end of the week.
So once again here is another weeks musing of discovering and benefiting from Gods amazing gift of essential oils!

Sunday/ Monday: During and after church I really felt like I was coming down with the cold/flu everyone has been having in our group. So immediately when I got home I started the tea kettle up and turned on the diffuser with some Thieves. Before bed I had 5 cups of essential oil tea. Here is the mixture I made up and always turn to when feeling sick.
Essential Oil Tea Remedy
Coffee Cup filled with hot water
1 drop Thieves
2 drops R.C
3 drops Purification
4 drops Lemon
1/8-1/4 cup honey

Sometimes I will add some more Thieves and RC if I feel like I would like it to be more potent. It is all personal taste.:) Let me know if you try it or have another tea mixture you rely on when you are feeling poorly.
I didn't go to sleep until 3:30am that night, or morning I guess.:D Some friends were spending the night and we girls had a sleep over; need I say more.:) Anyway I was sure when I woke up in the morning I would be horribly sick, but to my relief I felt surprisingly well and energetic.

Next time you are feeling run down and listless try my tea remedy you won’t be disappointed.:) 

Tuesday: My neck was really out, which led to a very painful headache on the verge of a migraine pain. So as always I forgot about my wonderful oils which I sell and write and talk about all the time, and I didn't even think to put it on until the evening when my dear sister suggested it. I quickly remembered as if I am so unknowledgeable in this area.:P Anyway I finally got the peppermint and rubbed it on all the trouble spots and within 30 minutes I had a lot of relief. Peppermint is a life saver!

Wednesday: We were doing a project that consisted of sugar cubes and of course they were found out by sugar ants and then the sugar ants found our cat food.  As we were cleaning up the ants and the mess my sister Abigail brought the Bug Spray that I had made for camp and sprayed it all over the ants, they all died or deserted within five minutes!!! You can find the recipe here! I was so ecstatic to find out that it works for ants too.:D

Thursday: My Mom had a really painful ingrown toenail. So I got some Purification and she applied it to the area, within a couple hours she said the pain was completely gone! The same day my sister badly bruised a small section of her leg. Once again I applied Purification and Lavender and two days later she only had a tiny bit of bruising! Yeaahhhh!!!! I love Purification! It is great for bug bites, scrapes, bruise’s, minor infections etc.. Purchase Purification; in your next Essential Reward order, you will not be disappointed.:)

Friday: I was having a bit of a rough time with my nerves and hormones, basically I spent half of the day crying.:) My Mom brought me Dragon Time and I placed a drop under my tongue and within 30 minutes my nerves were back and had a much better countenance and a good rest of the day. I am loving Dragon Time, I have used it probably 4-5 times when I am having a “woman moment”J  Have you tried or used Dragon Time ladies? 

Please leave any thoughts, comments or suggestions below!!!
Have a blessed week!
Happy oiling,

"Life Saving Oil Stories" from our weekend vacation!

Well we are back from vacation! We had such a lovely time, it was one of the most relaxing and productive vacation we have had in a long time. It was so nice to get away from internet, blogging, social media, school, chores, ordinary life and just time to reflect on God's grace and mercy to us.:)
Ok, so back to oils! Well they basically saved my life.....

One of our dear friends started losing her voice from all the dust and altitude change of the camp, she also had some jet lag. She didn't believe in essential oils either so I did my best to prove her wrong.:) I made her some fantastic tea. I added some R.C, Raven, Lemon and Purification along with some honey with one of our favorite tea blends! I didn't get to try it but from her face it was clear it wasn't as pleasing to her taste buds as I thought it would be, but in the morning her voice was much better and she never lost it again!!!

I personally enjoy volleyball and hiking but I am not naturally athletic or good at it, but I am a pretty determined person and rarely give up or in.:) So I managed to bruise my finger and majorly scrape my arm. I was trying to climb up a big rock/boulder, so as soon as I got home I applied lavender to the bruise. Then to the scrape I applied Clara Derm and Animal Scents Ointment. Both of them healed beautifully and stopped the pain.

Our final vacation day was full of hiking and lake activities. So I decided to go on the longer hike for the first time which I was super excited about and so I made sure to pack lots of essential oils. I took Peppermint, Lavender and Geranium. As well as some bug spray and sunscreen. 
We used sunscreen right from the start. Then one of our dear friends is a diabetic and she was a having some blood sugar trouble on that day. So her ankles were swelling and she quickly went up to another shoe size within 30 minutes.On our breaks during the hike I applied Peppermint to her ankles 3 times. By the time we were getting ready to head back her foot had already reduced in size and the pain was almost gone. Praise God!

As I mentioned in a previous post I made some Thieves Hand Sanitizer for the trip. The last three days of the trip we lost all the water supply for our toilets and shower and had only about 4 bathrooms for the whole camp(around 150) so we ran out of soap and sanitation very quickly.:) So I used the hand cleaner practically every day and defiantly more then once!

This by all means are not all the life saving stories but defiantly the major highlights.:)
I hope to have encouraged you to use your oils more often and in every life situations!

Blessing on your day,
