5 Remedies for Common Back-to-School Issues

back-to-school

As our children are getting ready to head back to school, we as parents may be dreading some of the typical issues that come with that – lice, ADD and ADHD, focus, fear and all those bugs that they like to bring home and share – coughs, colds and stomach bugs.  We have a natural alternative for these issues that are as easy as A, B, C.

Lice

The most common remedy for lice (pediculoisis) and their eggs (nits) is lindane (gamma benzene hexachloride), a highly toxic polychlorinated chemical that is structurally very similar to hazardous banned pesticides such as DDT and chlordane.  It is so dangerous that Dr. Guy Sansfacon, head of the Quebec Poison Control Centre in Canada, has requested that lindane be banned.

Essential oils offer a safe, effective alternative.  A 1996 study by researchers in Iceland showed the effectiveness against head ice of the essential oils of anise seed, cinnamon bark, thyme, melaleuca (M. alternifolia), peppermint, and nutmeg in shampoo and rinse solutions.

Melaleuca Alternifolia 2

Head Lice Recipe:

4 drops thyme

2 drops lavender

2 drops geranium

Combine oils in a glass jar (never plastic).  You may apply single oils or blends neat or diluted, depending on the oils that are used.  Add 1 tsp. of oil recipe diluted 50/50 to shampoo and massage onto entire scalp.

Cover with disposable shower cap and leave on for at least ½ hour.

Rinse well using 1 cup of Thieves Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash massaged into hair and scalp.  Leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing out.

Note: whenever diluting Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils use organic, cold-pressed olive or coconut oil.  If you use something else it will prevent the YLEO from absorbing properly and penetrating the cells to provide their therapeutic effect.

 

ADD/ADHD

Terry Friedmann, MD, in 2001 completed pioneering studies using essential oils to combat ADD and ADHD.  Using twice-a-day inhalation of essential oils including vetiver, cedarwood, and lavender, Dr. Friedmann was able to achieve clinically significant results in 60 days.

Researchers postulate that essential oils mitigate ADD and ADHD through their stimulation of the limbic system of the brain.

Because attention deficit disorder may be caused by mineral deficiencies in the diet, increasing nutrient intake and absorption of magnesium, potassium, and other trace minerals can also have a significant, beneficial effect in resolving ADD.

Vetiver 3651

Recommended oils are: (singles) Vetiver, lavender, cedarwood, sandalwood, cardamom, peppermint, frankincense; (blends) Brain Power, Peace & Calming, Clarity, Ruta Vala, and Tranquil Roll-On; (supplements) MultiGreens, Master Formula HIS or HERS, OmegaGize, Mineral Essence, NingXia Red, Power Meal, Balance Complete, Essentialzyme and Detoxzyme.

Application and Usage:

Inhalation:

Diffuse your choice of oils for ½ hour 4-8 times a day as desired.

Put 2-3 drops of the desired oil in your hands and rub them together, cup your hands over your nose, and inhale throughout the day as needed.

Put 2-3 drops of oil on a cotton ball or tissue and put it in an air vent in your house, vehicle, hotel room, etc.

Topical:

You may apply single oils or blends neat or diluted, depending on the oil or oils being used.

Ingestion or Oral:

Each bottle of Young Living Essential Oil states on the label whether or not it can be digested.  If it says “Dietary Supplement” on the label, follow those guidelines.  Young Living Essential Oils are the only brand that is safe to ingest.  Do not use any other brand you may find in a health food store, etc., as they will state on the bottles “do not ingest”, “for topical use only” or something similar, letting you know there is something other than essential oils in that bottle.

 

Focus

We want our children to be able to focus and learn, and Young Living Essential Oils have the ability to help with focus and concentration.

Some of the single oils suggested are: Cedarwood, cypress, juniper, lavender, lemon, basil, helichrysum, myrrh, orange, peppermint, rosemary, sandalwood, and ylang ylang.  Some of the blends are: Brain Power, Clarity, Highest Potential, Common Sense, Awaken, Gathering, Dream Catcher, and Magnify Your Purpose.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Did you know that if a person smells peppermint (or other essential oil of choice) while they are studying something, and then are able to smell that same smell when they are taking a test, it will help them recall the information they were studying when smelling that same smell?  Aroma helps with memory recall – think about how many times you have smelled something and been reminded of a childhood memory.  Peppermint is usually not an offensive smell to anyone, so having your child put a few drops on their wrists on test day (or any day) will typically not offend anyone.

 

Fear

Fear can be very debilitating to anyone, especially a child, and prevent them from learning.  Essential oils have the ability to enter the limbic system, where emotions are stored, and clear out negative emotions.  Some of the essential oils that will help with overcoming fear include: (singles) Palo Santo, cypress, Roman chamomile, geranium, juniper, myrrh, spruce, orange, sacred frankincense and bergamot; (blends) Valor, Present Time, The Gift, Release, Hope, White Angelica, Trauma Life, Gratitude, Highest Potential.

Highest Potential

Use your oil of choice and put 2-3 drops of the desired oil in your hands and rub them together, cup your hands over your nose, and inhale throughout the day as needed.

Oils may be applied topically.  You may apply single oils or blends neat or diluted, depending on the oil or oils being used.

 

Avoiding Colds and Stomach Bugs

Keeping your immune system built up will help you avoid catching the latest bug or cold making the rounds.  A great essential oil for not only keeping your immune system strong, but also helping to eliminate cough, colds and stomach bugs, is Thieves Essential Oil blend.  When applied topically on the bottom of the feet daily, it will keep your immune system built up and help you avoid catching what everyone else is dealing with.   Diffusing it at home on a daily basis will keep the whole family healthy – it only needs to be diffused a few hours a day.

Thieves Essential Oil Blend

If you do end up catching a cough or cold, add a few drops of Thieves to a small glass of water, gargle with it and swallow if desired.  You can also put a drop or two under the tongue, but since Thieves does have a spicy flavor, most young children may not like this, so applying to the bottom of their feet would probably be best for younger children.

Other great options for coughs and colds are: (singles) eucalyptus (E. globulus), eucalyptus (E. radiata), peppermint, myrrh, goldenrod, ledum, spruce, ravintsara, cedarwood, marjoram, hyssop, copaiba, and Idaho balsam Fir.  Some recommended blends are: R.C., Breathe Again Roll-On, Raven, Thieves, Melrose, Peace & Calming, and Exodus II.  Recommended supplements include Inner Defense, ImmuPro, Super C, Super C Chewables.  Young Living also has Thieves Hard Lozenges, and Thieves Soft Lozenges, as well as Thieves Spray, that would all help.

Oils that would help with stomach issues include: (singles) ginger, oregano, mountain savory, clove, lemon, peppermint and nutmeg.  Blends would include: DiGize, Juva Flex and Thieves.

Please note, all the citrus oils, including bergamot, are photosensitive, so please, if applying topically, make sure to avoid sunlight for at least 12 hours, or apply on an area that will be covered by clothing, or on the bottom of feet, otherwise you risk getting a severe sunburn quickly.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email.  I look forward to helping you with your family’s back-to-school needs.

23 Ways to Use Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender

Lavender is grown on 3 of Young Living’s farms in France, Idaho and Utah.

“If you are struggling with personal health challenges that seem overwhelming, essential oils are just what you need. Young Living Essential Oils are the purest essential oils I have found worldwide.” Teri Williams, International Cover Model, Author, and Health Lecturer

Whispering Springs Farms UT

Lavender Oil is often referred to as the universal oil, because there is such a multitude of uses for this oil, such as cuts, bruises, burns, headaches, and insomnia. I recommend that you keep a bottle of lavender in every room in your house! The following “fact sheet” is from the Essential Oils Desk Reference Guide, published by Essential Science Publishing:

LAVENDER (Lavandula angustifolia)

ACTION: Antiseptic, analgesic, antitumoral, anticonvulsant, sedative, anti-inflammatory. Lavender is beneficial for cleansing cuts and wounds and is ideal for skin care, since it prevents the build up of excess sebum, a skin oil that bacteria feed on. Lavender has also been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects.

TRADITIONAL USES: The French scientist René Gatefossé was the first to discover lavenders ability to promote tissue regeneration and speed wound healing when he severely burned his arm in a laboratory accident. Today, lavender is one of the few essential oils to still be listed in the British Pharmacopoeia.

INDICATIONS: Burns (cell renewal), sunburns (including lips), dandruff, hair loss, allergies, convulsions, herpes, headaches, indigestion, insomnia, high blood pressure, menopausal conditions, nausea, phlebitis, tumors, premenstrual conditions, scarring (minimizes), skin conditions (acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and rashes) and stretch marks. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.

OTHER USES: Lavender is a universal oil with many different applications. It may help arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, convulsions, depression, earaches, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, hives (urticaria), insect bites, laryngitis, nervous tension, respiratory infections, rheumatism, and throat infections.

“My son had problems for years being able to fall asleep. He would lay there for hours it seemed. He had gotten into the habit of taking something over the counter before bedtime each night. He is 21 yrs old with a mind of his own, and I was really worried. One day, I asked him if I could put Lavender on the bottom of his feet at bedtime and he agreed. He slept like a baby and now he uses it every night. He no longer takes anything else!” Regina Danley

Lavender Feature

A few idea’s of the multitude of ways to use your Therapeutic Grade Lavender oil:

  • Rub Lavender oil on the feet for a calming effect on the body.
  • Rub a drop of Lavender oil on your palms and smooth on your pillow to help you sleep.
  • Put a drop of Lavender oil on a bee sting or insect bite to stop itching and reduce swelling.
  • Put 2-3 drops of Lavender oil on a minor burn to decrease pain.
  • Drop Lavender oil on a cut to stop the bleeding.
  • Mix several drops of Lavender oil with Young Living’s V-6 Vegetable Mixing Oil and use topically on eczema and dermatitis.
  • To alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, place a drop of Lavender oil on the end of the tongue or around the naval or behind the ears.
  • To stop a nosebleed, put a drop of Lavender oil on a tissue and wrap it around a small chip of ice. Push the tissue covered ice chip up under the middle of the top lip to the base of the nose and hold as long as comfortable or until the bleeding stops (do not freeze the lip or gum).
  • Rub a drop of Lavender oil over the bridge of the nose to unblock tear ducts.
  • Rub Lavender oil on dry or chapped skin.
  • Rub a drop of Lavender oil on chapped or sunburned lips.
  • To reduce or minimize the formation of scar tissue, massage Lavender oil on and around the affected area.
  • Rub 2 4 drops of Lavender oil over the armpit area to act as a deodorant.
  • Rub a drop of Lavender oil between your palms and inhale deeply to help alleviate the symptoms of hay fever.
  • Rub several drops of Lavender oil into the scalp to help eliminate dandruff.
  • Place a few drops of Lavender oil on a cotton ball and place in your linen closet to scent the linens and repel moths and insects.
  • Place a drop of Lavender oil in your water fountain to scent the air, kill bacteria and prolong the time between cleanings.
  • Place a few drops of Lavender oil on a wet cloth and throw into the dryer, which will deodorize and freshen your laundry.
  • Put a drop of Lavender oil on a cold sore.
  • Diffuse Lavender oil to alleviate the symptoms of allergies.
  • Spritz several drops of Lavender oil mixed with distilled water on a sunburn to decrease pain.
  • Drop Lavender oil on a cut to clean the wound and kill bacteria.
  • Apply 2-3 drops of Lavender oil to a rash to stop the itching and heal the skin.

FRAGRANCE INFLUENCE: Calming, relaxing, and balancing, both physically and emotionally.

Remember, only Young Living essential oils will give you these amazing results because they are the only pure, therapeutic grade essential oil brand available.

I hope you try lavender in some of these ways soon.  Enjoy.

Xiang Mao Exotic Essential Oil

Young Living Founder and CEO D. Gary Young has a passion for traveling the world in search of new essential oils. One of these new oils, Xiang Mao, was discovered high in Taiwan’s southeastern mountain slopes and is grown by the aboriginal Paiwan tribe. Commonly known as red lemongrass, Xiang Mao means “aromatic grass for rapid enlightenment” and is a rapid-growing clump grass that can grow up to 6 feet tall.

Xiang Mao

Xiang Mao was traditionally used to freshen household air, enlighten the mind, and moisturize skin. It was also used in folk medicine for its calming effects and to promote relaxation. Xiang Mao’s benefits and versatility make it ideal for many everyday uses.

Xiang Mao Benefits:

  • Useful as an all-natural way to clean
  • Keeps skin moisturized and fresh and may support skin in addressing blemishes*
  • Adds a hint of lemon taste to your favorite beverages

Ways to Use Xiang Mao:

  • Diffuse or apply a drop of Xiang Mao to your temples to support positive meditation and promote calm and relaxing feelings. It may also be used for a daily boost of encouragement.
  • Diffuse Xiang Mao alone or with Dorado AzulCitronella, and Myrtle to create a powerful, pesticide-free, natural, and safe insect deterrent. (Additional essential oils that could be used with Xiang Mao for an insect repellant include PatchouliCedarwoodMelaleuca Alternifolia, and Eucalyptus Blue.)
  • Use the above-mentioned oils to create a natural bug spray that is safe enough to apply directly to your skin. (Use 10–20 drops of each oil in a base of distilled water or drop the oils into standing water around your yard and home to help prevent mosquitoes.)
  • Mix Xiang Mao with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex and apply to your feet following a warm bath to encourage relaxation.
  • Use this oil as a cleansing agent to help purify surfaces. Add it to Thieves® Household Cleaner or add 20–30 drops in a small spray bottle of distilled water and use it on countertops. For furniture polish, use the same mixture, adding ½ cup olive oil to protect and nourish wood furniture.
  • Use Xiang Mao in Young Living’s Bath & Shower Gel Base for a clean, refreshing aroma at bath time.
  • Make an all-natural soap with this new single oil.

How to Use

Topical: Apply 2-4 drops directly to desired area. Dilution not required except for the most sensitive skin. Aromatic: Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily.

Ingredients

Cymbopogon citratus† (Red lemongrass) leaf oil.

I hope you enjoy this amazing exotic oil soon.

Hope for PTSD

PTSD-In-Vietnam-Vets

According to the Mayo Clinic website, symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, can start within months of a traumatic event, or may be delayed and not appear for years after the event.  We have all come to realize that people suffering with PTSD can have significant problems in social or work situations, and in their relationships.

The symptoms of PTSD are grouped into four types:

  1. intrusive memories
  2. avoidance
  3. negative changes in thinking and mood
  4. changes in emotional reactions

These categories of symptoms are described as follows:

1.    Symptoms of intrusive memories may include:

  • Recurrent, unwanted distressing memories of the traumatic event
  • Reliving the traumatic event as if it were happening again (flashbacks)
  • Upsetting dreams about the traumatic event
  • Severe emotional distress or physical reactions to something that reminds you of the event

2.     Symptoms of avoidance may include:

  • Trying to avoid thinking or talking about the traumatic event
  • Avoiding places, activities or people that remind you of the traumatic event

3.    Symptoms of negative changes in thinking and mood may include:

  • Negative feelings about yourself or other people
  • Inability to experience positive emotions
  • Feeling emotionally numb
  • Lack of interest in activities you once enjoyed
  • Hopelessness about the future
  • Memory problems, including not remembering important aspects of the traumatic event
  • Difficulty maintaining close relationships

4.  Symptoms of changes in emotional reactions (also called arousal symptoms) may include:

  • Irritability, angry outbursts or aggressive behavior
  • Always being on guard for danger
  • Overwhelming guilt or shame
  • Self-destructive behavior, such as drinking too much or driving too fast
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Being easily startled or frightened

The intensity of these PTSD symptoms can vary over time, can become more severe when stressed, even what most people would call normal stresses in everyday life.  The symptoms can be triggered by specific events that remind the person of what they went through; eg. if they hear a car backfire or fireworks, it can cause recall of combat experiences; or hearing a news report about a sexual assault can bring back memories of the assault they went through.

The most common events leading to the development of PTSD include:

  • Combat exposure
  • Childhood neglect and physical abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Physical attack
  • Being threatened with a weapon

Many other traumatic events also can lead to PTSD, such as a house fire, living through a natural disaster, mugging, robbery, car accident, plane crash, torture, kidnapping, life-threatening medical diagnosis, terrorist attack, and other extreme or life-threatening events.  Also the loss of a loved one, or a divorce can also cause PTSD.

Post-traumatic stress disorder can disrupt a person’s whole life: their job, relationships, health and enjoyment of everyday activities.

Having PTSD also may increase a person’s risk of other mental health problems, such as:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Issues with drugs or alcohol use
  • Eating disorders
  • Suicidal thoughts and actions

For the multitudes of people suffering from PTSD, each are unique in what they are going through, but there are a few issues they all have in common that need to be addressed for them to have any hope of returning to a normal life – sleep, dealing with the hate and anger they feel, and being able to focus so they can work and function with their family in appropriate ways.

Men and women that have served in the armed forces have the VA that they can turn to; others turn to their doctors and hope that their insurance will cover the costly medications and therapy.

But there is a surprising alternative…

In late 2013 retired Master Sergeant Jess Johnson, of the U.S. Army Special Forces, met D. Gary Young, founder of Young Living Essential Oils.  Sgt. Johnson started his Army career at the age of 18 in Vietnam, serving as a medic on the front lines with the 101st Airborne Division, leading their M.A.S.H. medic in charge of triage.  He served for 30 years.  Even after retirement he volunteered and went to Iraq 11 times.

“I met Gary Young seven months ago — his oils work! For the first time in 45 years, I now sleep a full eight hours and no longer experience the nightmares. So powerful!”

Sgt. Johnson had been dealing with PTSD for 45 years, which only became a medical diagnosis in 1980, prior to that it was classified as “stress response syndrome”.  For 45 years he had been unable to sleep a solid 8 hours at night without waking up throughout the night with nightmares.  He typically woke between the hours of 3 and 5 am, as that was the time he was on radio watch in Vietnam, when he was expected to be on high alert should any situation arise.

He had been trying to deal with his PTSD by continuing to serve in the U.S. Army, by helping veterans when they came home, hoping it would also help him with his own symptoms, but nothing was helping – he was still unable to sleep through the night without nightmares, had major anger issues and emotional outbursts that affected his family life, etc.

When Sgt. Johnson met Gary Young in late 2013 and heard about the essential oils, how they could help with emotional trauma, etc., he wondered if it could help him with his PTSD.  He began using the essential oils Gary Young recommended, both some single oils and some specific blends, and, as Retired Master Sergeant Jess Johnson shared at the 2014 Young Living Convention in Salt Lake City in late June 2014, he was able to sleep for a full 8 hours without nightmares after just one week of using Young Living Essential Oils.

Spring Cleaning is upon us and here is a great way to clean your kitchen, disinfecting it with all-natural ingredients that include Young Living’s Essential Oils, and receive the benefit of enhancing your overall well-being by improving the cleanliness of your home with Young Living’s Thieves® products?

With check lists, helpful hints, and cleaning recipes, you will achieve a clean home in no time. By adding an additional 30 minutes to your usual cleaning regimen, you will experience the Thieves difference in just a week.
