When Life Throws You a Lemon - Yes there's an oil for that.

Well, we all have those seasons don't we - - those time in life where things just aren't going as we expected.  

When life decides, you know what, you don't have enough going on, so let's just throw an extra lemon or two in there.

Well, that's what's happened to me these past several months, and seeing that December was the last time I've blogged on here, makes it even more evident to me.  But, life goes on. Sometimes, you have to take a step back, rearrange some priorities, rest a little, and regroup and continue to march on.

But during those lemon-filled seasons, there are essential oils that can benefit, and I wanted to share some of those with you in a fun little way.  We know that laughter is often the best medicine, so take a look at this Must Have Monday video and get a few ideas on what oils might be best for you.

Until next time, blessings and keep Living The Oil Life!

Tired Tootsies Foot Soak

Have you ever had one of those days? You know - - the kind of day where you are so exhausted that you can't even feel you're exhausted? And, if you aren't careful and don't take care of yourself, you may just end up knocking yourself out of the race for a few laps.

Well, recently I had one of those days. Or, should I say week. You see, we have been doing a ton of moving, rearranging, painting and cleaning in our children's ministry. And, we aren't finished yet. We are slowing down and the big physical stuff is almost through, but we still have a bit to finish. Now, I am not in tip top shape and, to be quite honest, have been facing some health issues that have kept me from being the push-my-limits type of person that I can be when I need to be. Plus, I can't imagine how those who are in great shape and doing 100% more than I am are actually still walking. I'm pooped. But, after my Tired Tootsies Foot Soak, I was much better and was ready to do a little decor/prop shopping before heading back to the church for more work before spending time with some amazing kids.

I love my oils and I love to try all kinds of different recipes when it comes to foot soaks. Because I really want to be sure I stayed in the race I decided to use Young Living Thieves and Rosemary essential oils.

THIEVES is an amazing blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils. It is a definite staple in my oil cabinet and helps promote a healthy immune response, and may support overall wellness, and I love the strong cinnamon aroma it has to it. Along with supporting my natural defensese and the cleansing abilities of Lemon oil, the Eucalyptus Radiata was perfect for helping to relax my exhausted muscles.

Although Thieves oil blend contains ROSEMARY essential oil, I like to add a few extra drops because it is of my very favorite aromas. Most of the time, Rosemary oil can promote and energizing atmosphere. However, at just the right time, it can also have a very relaxing aroma that helps an overactive mind unwind. And, this was just the right time. On top of that, Rosemary is also beneficial to the skin (and hair). Many times I will run some Rosemary and Cedarwood oil through my wet hair before blowdrying.

Adding approximately 4 to 5 drops each of Thieves & Rosemary to about a 1/2 cup of EPSOM SALT  was perfect. Epsom salt is wonderful as a mild detoxifier, can sooth achy feet or muscles, and help to soften rough skin. To help the oils saturate into the salt, I like to mix them together and let them blend together for about 20 minutes before using.

Now, what's that bottle in the Mason jar, you may be wondering. Well, I found that if you make a little fizzie bottle bomb of the salt mixture and drop it in your foot soak or bath just when the aroma of the oils is beginning to fade, it will release a little more oil. This helps to make your soak or bath last a little bit longer. Here is a little DIY video I did explaining it.

20 minutes soaking in my Tired Tootsies Foot Soak and I was ready for a good night's sleep and ready to face another few laps in the race.

What are some of your favorite oils to use in a foot soak? Comment below and share them with us. I always love to try new recipes, and I'm sure I'm going to be needing another soak very soon.

Until next time, keep Living The Oil Life.

Blessings,

A Little Tummy Trouble Got My Oily Journey Started

Welcome to my little corner of the web, and thank you for stopping by.

I often get asked, "How did you get introduced to oils?"  It's one of my favorite things to talk about, because it totally rocked my world.

First a little back story, I'm on dialysis (have been for on and off 23 years but more about that in another post).  With dialysis, you often experience many unpleasant issues, one of those being a little tummy trouble when you over-indulge in some of your favorite foods.  Usually, when this happens, one of two things happen, neither of which are pleasant.  One, I usually end up getting terribly sick.  Or, two, I usually have to leave wherever I may be and go lie down or suffer somewhere out of sight, as to not be visible for any pity-partyers.

So, fast forward to three years ago, to a night that changed my life. I was at a dear friends home, and we were celebrating some type of holiday.  I don't remember which one, only because we celebrated a lot at her house, and they tend to run together when I think about it. Well, my dear friend always makes sure that we are very well fed and the spread she provides is always amazing. This night was no different. I ate and visited, ate and played a game, ate and played with the kids, and ate some more. Well, needless to say, my tummy, although very satisfied with all the amazing food, started to be very disagreeable. I was feeling extremely nauseous and knew that I was on a quick downhill run for having to end my party time. That's when my wonderful hostess (who knew me and my tummy troubles very well) said that she had something that she wanted me to try - something that might really help me.

She then gave me this little brown bottle of liquid and said, "Rub a few drops in your hand, inhale it deeply and then rub it on your stomach."  Well, you can imagine the look on my face when I said, "What?! Rub it ON my stomach?"  "Trust me," she said.  So trust I did....I rubbed a few drops in my hands, inhaled deeply and...."eeeewww, it smells like black licorice" I winced.  She laughed and again said, "Trust me, just rub it on your stomach."  So, I hesitantly did was she said and then went and sat down to finish a movie we were watching, expecting to have to leave because my tummy was ready to go.  BUT, to my surprise, within not even 10 minutes the pain and nauseousness was COMPLETELY gone.  I mean completely.  And, I was able to start enjoying that amazing spread of hers again.

DiGize & DiGize Vitality

So, what was that little brown bottle of amazing liquid?  DiGize Essential Oil from Young Living.  And since about two weeks after that night, I have not gone without it.  I keep a couple of bottles at home, so I never run out.  And, I keep a smaller bottle with me at all times for those moments when my tummy decides it wants to try and pick a fight, or in case someone I am with may need a little help.  DiGize Essential Oil is an amazing blend of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli oils that create a unique spicy aroma that is very close to black licorice.  

As a topical/aromatic oil Digize can be applied directly to the chest, writs or abdomen to help calm an upset stomach or it can be diffused in the office, at home or in the car to promote a relaxing and calm atmosphere.  And, if you're like me and sometimes need that little extra support, there is also Di-Gize Vitality oil.  The same amazing oil blend offered as a supplement in which you can add a few drops to a capsule, water or juice to help support a healthy digestive system.  And it's safe to use with your children and pets.

I'm so thankful for DiGize essential oil blend for keeping my tummy happy and for my dear friend, Minita, for caring enough to share her oils with me that changed my life.  If you're ready to begin using essential oils in your family's everyday wellness support, I would love to not only help you get started but walk alongside you in your journey towards wellness, purpose and abundance.  I would love for you to message me or visit LivingTheOilLife.Com for more information.

Thanks for stopping by, and until next time, keep the Living The Oil Life.
