Household Oil Uses

Greasy, Burnt Tuesday Evening.

Hi! Does anyone have stainless steel pans!? I love my Al-Clad cookware but man oh man those nasty stains they receive. And yes, before I start to hear it from you guys, I have yet to fully learn how to correctly heat and cook with my pans to where they show no residue. I admit it. Ok, now that’s out of the air I can continue =) LOL….

Well, it happened. I browned my chic thighs in the pan over the stove and then put in a blend of brown sugar, honey, thyme, garlic, basil oil, oregano oil, along with some salt and pepper. I then placed the entire pan into the oven to finish cooking.

This dish is unreal YUMMYYYYY but the sticky stuck-on mess the brown sugar, honey and grease leaves behind is a nightmare. That is…unless you have Lemon Oil.

I do not use BarKeepers cleaners, as I was referred to do, bc I just plain out do not trust any chemicals on my cook wear. Also along with dishwasher detergent, but that’s another story. So I would always sit there and try to just scrub and scrub the mess off and it never would come 100% off and shiny.

So as I sat there over the sink scrubbing and scrubbing, I had an epiphany. DUH. Lemon Oil. O.M.G. WHY have I never thought of this before. If it can take off stickers, and cut through grease and is used for cleaning, and is in the Thieves Household Cleaner, then it must work. Well, make a long story short, it did.

I literally did not even have to use a sponge. I used a paper towel. Check it out.

Sunday Morning Gospel….Oily Style

bible

Did you know there are over 200 verses in the Bible that mention the uses of the oils in  plants God has provided?

WOW. I am consistently amazed in Gods power. I mean come on, he knows what he is DOING!! hehe

“Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail.  They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary.  Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”  Ezekiel 47:12 (KJV)

These Essential Oils are one of Gods ahhhhmazing creations and his gift to us! How would anyone not want to partake in this gift!?

oil vs drugs

God has GIVEN us these Oils. He has provided us with these all natural remedies. So many of us have not accessed these gifts and have shoveled right ahead to man-made medicines. God wants us, our families and our children to remain in the healthiest aspect possible which is why he has gifted us such gifts!

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed,and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so.  And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. Genesis 1:11-12

This is powerful. His plants are powerful. His oils are powerful. HE is powerful…..oh, and I love him.

To reap the benefits of these plants and their oils, they HAVE to be pure. They have to be clean of synthetic chemicals. They have to be harvested and distilled under strict guidelines. There is only ONE oil company that provides such circumstances. And yes my friends, that is Young Living. They have a strict Sead to Seal process that monitors and controls every aspect of producing these oils, so you know and can trust the oil you are using is the top of the line, purest therapeutic grade available. Majority of companies sell these ‘Therapeutic Grade’ oils adding additives, fragrances, etc… But there is a difference. YL owns their own farms unlike other oil companies that subcontract the harvesting. Yikes! The thought of ingesting and topically applying these oils from a 3rd party gives me the chilly willies!

seed

Ahhhh, Sunday morning Gospel. I love starting Sundays right. It makes the rest of the week feel invigorating and content.

…and on the 7th day, God rested. AMEN! He deserves a rest!

Hope everyone has a blessed week and look forward to hearing your feedback! Let me know if you are interested in partaking in one of Gods gifts and I will lead you on the right path to healthier family living. This is a lifestyle change you will never look back with regrets.

XoXo.

Elishia

Friday Night…Lights? …or Oils?

%22PANAWAY v1.1-2

…..Ahhh Friday Night Panaway

You know you’re a mommy when it is Friday night, 9:30 and content to already be in bed.

Drummmm Rolllllll PUHLEASEEEEE

I have crafted my firsts, of many I’m sure, pain creams! I was so excited to start this venture, I was shaking with impatience until my mason jars came in. Thank you Amazon-Prime. I have seen a few different recipes, so I started with the ‘main’ one that I have seen on more than one site. And, ta-da! It was so simple, the only problem I ran into was I am now almost out of PanAway and I’m starting to get anxiety about getting another one here fast! hah! #oilobsessionproblems But, I have decided to wait until I put in my big order on May 15th. It is DEF one of the more expensive oils, but So worth it.

photo 1

Here we go! I purchased this HUGE jar of Organic Coconut Oil at Cosco for $17. What a steal! I then spooned out one cup of the oil into the mixing bowl.

photo 3

…Then, I dropped in 20 drops of PanAway, 20 drops of Peppermint, and 15 drops of Valor (aka chiropractor in a bottle).

Whipped them all together and BAM! A light yummy smelling consistency.

I then spooned them into 3 eight oz mason Bell jars which were $10 for 4 jars. It only filled them up 1/2 way, but I needed to portion them out to 3 different people and I did not have enough PanAway to make more at the moment. eeeek! #dontremindme

Next, I cut different fabric patterns and glued them to the lid. Took a black Sharpie, wrote ‘Pain Cream’ on the top and sealed them up ready to be distributed!

The consistency of the ‘cream’ is more of that an oil. It is awesome! A little bit goes a longgggg way. When you rub it on your skin, it melts causing a little tingling, coolness factor. The Peppermint drives it down into the muscle faster being that the Peppermint causes oxygen to flow into your muscle fibers.

One is going to my father for his hip joints that are constantly sore due to him being 71.

Another is going to my Aunt Diane that just had knee replacement surgery to rub over her sore recovering knees.

And the other is going to Breydan’s teacher who is a marathon runner for her muscle fatigue and soreness.

This cream can really be used for any sort of aches, pains, muscle tension, tension headaches, overused muscles, etc…

Wahoo! The joys of Friday Night Oils!

I may sleep well now knowing I am helping friends live a healthier lifestyle, oh and I am sure this Lavender on my neck doesn’t hurt 😉

Monday Morning Edition.

Whats that song… “..easy like Sunday morningggg”, wait, lets change that. “..easy like Monday morningggg” that is better!

sunrise

Couch sitting, feeling relaxed from the Lavender I basically poured over my neck last night, sipping my coffee, baby still asleep but starting to wiggle (which means I better hurry!), inhaling this Joy from the silent diffuser and taking it all in. What a BUSY but wonderful weekend and once again, I could not have made it through without the use of my oils. How I lived without these, I have yet to know.

Ahhhh, Thieves. I will probably blog a lot about this oil. But until you try it, don’t knock it! It is the BEST!

thieves

Saturday, Lee started getting a dreaded canker soar on the top back of his throat. He had it a month ago too and it got so bad, his glands were swollen trying to fight the virus. I told him “We are NOT letting it get that bad this go around! Now come here, bend back, open wide and let me drop this Thieves on it.” we applied it twice a day, and would you know, it has not gotten worse, but actually its almost gone! Wow. Usually they last 2 weeks. Nope, not this one! I promise you, I swear by Thieves!

With Breydan going to Busch Gardens on Sunday, which by the way he rode his first roller coasters and all of them at that and loved them, I could not wait for him to get home to rub Thieves all over the bottom of his feet to fight off any picked up germs from all those nasty handles at Busch! yucky, haha! He waits on the steps for me after his shower. “mommy, put oil on my feet” hah! I do not even have to tell him. Love it!

I also added a few drops of Thieves to my dishwasher last night! I had raw Chicken parts on a plate and a few utensils before cooking, so I figured I would add a few drops to fight off any extra bacteria the cleaner did not pull. Oh, and it smelled yummy while it cleaned. The best way to describe the smell is like a Cinnamon Clove paradise.

I have been using Gentle Baby Blend on Paris every night. He also sticks his feet out to me before I put his jammies on him for his oils. It is SO cute, and I know it helps him relax his little hyper body. He sleeps like a baby! wait, I think that is also an old saying!??! Welp, It works.

The list can go on about the oils I use everyday. I started with the Started Kit, which contains every-day oil uses and the diffuser, and it seriously has changed my life! I am willing to answer any questions any of you have about them to the best of my ability.

Everyday-Oils-Kit2

If you have never used Essential Oils, this kit hosts the best assortment of versatile oils. I wish I could GIVE them away to everyone I know!

The sharing of these oils only comes naturally. I am excited not to use medicine, because guess what?! There’s and oil for that!

..no seriously, there is. Name an ailment, I can get it covered.  =)

 

Time to go get baby Paris! My workday has just begun.

Not a day goes by….

Welp! Here we go!

I’ve decided to start a blog about how I am OBSESSED with Young_Livings Essential Oils. Not a day goes by, where I am not thankful a friend named Lauren deemed me into the direction of ‘trying’ essential oils.

Over the past month since I’ve purchased my Essential Kit, I have discovered more and more uses of these powerful, therapeutic oils. There are SO many things I have started using them for that I decided, instead of raving to my husband about daily testimonials, I would like to share with others so that they too may benefit!

*Note please* before I get started on a few past testimonies, I am NOT here to ‘sell’ to you, although I am a ‘distributor,’ I am just here to spread the amazing occurrences that has happened in my daily life with these oils, in hopes you may benefit in such natural healing as my family now does!

First off, I am a little obsessed with having healthy options, either in food, or in medicine, or anything that may be toxic. I do ALOT of research daily into such products, so when I came across Lauren’s post on using the oil to help her children ward off the stomach bug, I was immediately intrigued. I needed some of that good stuff! I looked into the company, I read blogs, and I asked her 743892748923789 questions (sorry Lauren!). Nothing but positive was found and I was impressed.

Ok! now let me share with you a few different instances that have just absolutely blown my mind.

I received my Kit, along with a diffuser for our home and quickly put it all into action. Now there are quite a few testimonies, so Im going to make this past month short and sweet…..

Thieves…ahhhhh my favorite. How I lived without this oil, I have yet to figure out.

Image

There are SO many uses for this oil it is unreal. Daily, I apply this oil to the bottoms of my feet to help ward off colds and flu. *this is the one Lauren used on her girls to fight off stomach bug* I had had some fillings I needed replaced from when I was younger, so I went to the dentist, he fixed them, and I was left with 2 sore upper teeth. Ouchie! I went home and took one drop and placed it neat onto my gums above my teeth, and within 5 seconds, it was completely numb helping me to feel absolutely zero soreness. I was HOOKED!!!!! The clove oil in this blend is considered a ‘hot oil’ so it numbed it right up along with fighting any traces of infection that may have been present. I used it every couple hours and boom, my teeth were 100%.

I also diffuse Theives when Breydan gets home from school, to kill off any bacteria or viruses that he may have wanted to bring home to share..how sweet Brey!

*Yikes, so much for short and sweet! sorry! ok, these next are…… =)

Peppermint: Aww, my number 2 choice of Fav.

Image I rub on my temples  or neck for headaches. The cooling sensation is an amazing relaxing experience! I have used it in my ice water, but use a straw! The oils naturally float on top of water! I have used it for Lees sinus problems. I have used it on Paris’ feet for a fever reducer. It helps fight my random bouts of nausea. and diffusing it is so invigorating! My go-to oil for everything.

Now we have Valor Oil: One of Young Livings Top Seller

Image

This is what they call the ‘chiropractor in a bottle’. I personally use Valor on my jaw twice a day to help my TMJ, and on my husbands big toe to help his snoring. There are also many uses , as with each oil, I am just still a little new to this one!

So, this list can go on and on…. I literally can be here all day typing everything I use the oils for, so I am going to just limit this next little part to a few incidents I have had and where these oils came into action!

  • I had a tiny vertigo attack, and if you have ever had this, you understand. phew, it is NOT a good feeling. So i researched the best oils. I immediately dropped 2 drops of Frankincense under my tongue, layered the oils Lemon, Frankincense, Lavender on the bone structure behind my ear, along with in front, down the sides of my neck, and placed peppermint on my temples as a cooling calming effect.  Felt and smelled amazing along with giving me an instant boost of calmness.
  • In the airplane ride home from Miami, Breydan, Lee and I, all applied ‘Stress Relief Roll on’ to our wrists as we flew through a horrific storm. It helped keep us relaxed as we probably looked crazy sniffing our wrists!
  • I was having an upset tummy, So I applied ‘DiGize’ to the outside of my stomach and intestines, and i kid you not, in 10 min, I did not have ONE cramp, or nasty feeling in my stomach for the rest of the evening. Now the smell on this one is not very pleasant, so I added a little peppermint under my nose to counter act the scent.
  • Breydans teacher said today that she was having Vertigo, almost to the point of the spinning sensation, so I grabbed my oils, told her I was on my way, and oiled her up with the same recipe I used on myself and can not wait to hear how she felt for the rest of the day!
  • I bought two cute picture frames from TJ max. and of course, they put the price stickers RIGHT on the glass. I dropped one drop of lemon, let it sit for 2 minutes and used my fingernail and it came right off! No more harsh chemicals of Goo-Gone. Yuck!
  • While gardening in the yard, I was bit by something that made me itch like crazy. One drop of Lavender, the itch was 100% gone, I could barely believe it worked so fast.
  • I slept wrong the other night causing me not to be able to turn my neck. I applied ‘Pan-Away’ to help the inflammation. And of course, it helped as the day progressed. Lee also applies this to his muscles after an intense workout at the gym. It smells like Icy-Hot, but it is all natural! So crazy!
  • I just bought Paris a sandbox, and I took a cotton ball with a little water and then applied ‘Purification’ around the bottom and top edges of the sand box to keep the bugs from crawling up and into his sandbox, and as of yet, we have not had one measly bug enter his sand! So awesome!

These are just a glimpse of how these oils have officially changed my life. I know this first blog was a little lengthy, but I just felt I had so much to catch you all up on!

The bottom line is this…. Knowing these are all natural, safe and effective therapeutic grade essential oils, that will not cause harm to my family, yet we can reap amazing benefits is just enough to make me feel halfway sane in this toxic world we live in.
