Hiccup Help

Who doesn't get irritated by hiccups? They always come at the most inopportune time and sometimes prove difficult to get rid of. Good news! There's an oil for that! Place one drop of Peppermint essential oil under the tongue at the base of the tongue (where the tongue connects to the bottom of the mouth). You will be pleasantly surprised to find that your hiccups will be gone. We have tried this remedy countless times on our boys as well as ourselves, and each time, it has worked. When we let our boys apply a drop themselves, often, they would put it on the bottom of the tongue but more toward the tip of the tongue. Each time they did that, the oil did not stop the hiccups. As soon as

Delicious Broiled Grapefruit

Our family tried this awesome, healthy recipe for dessert after dinner this week. It was a HUGE hit even with our company, one of whom does not like Grapefruit! The cinnamon essential oil and honey mixture takes the sour bite out of the fruit, and to my pleasant surprise, it doesn't make the grapefruit overly sweet. It's a perfect balance, and the fruit melts in your mouth! Give your immune system a boost and enjoy this tasty treat!

The Transforming Power of Essential Oils

In the last year, I have gone from a huge essential oil skeptic, to a desperate-to-try-anything-user, to an avid user, to an excited promoter and educator of essential oils. If that isn't a transformation in and of itself, allow me to share about the transformation essential oils have made in our son who struggles with Autism, Bi-polar, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and ADHD. Back in March 2014, our son was really struggling with his Bi-polar. He was rapidly cycling, we had him at the highest level of Risperdal (1.5 mg daily), his mood stabilizer, for him to function without falling asleep multiple times a day, yet we were contemplating hospitalizing him. Desperate to keep him out of the

As the winter wears on with the ups and downs in temperature and the days of seeing the sun few and far between, you may be feeling as gloomy as the weather, and your immune system may be struggling to catch up with the constantly changing weather. The good news???? There are oils for that! Try diffusing 3 drops of Invigorating Blend with 3 drops of Protective Blend!

Natural Focus and Concentration Support

As a mother of a child who suffers with ADHD and a special needs pediatric nurse with patients who suffer with ADHD, I understand first hand how problematic the symptoms can be and how toxic the drugs used to treat the symptoms are. I am happy to have found essential oils that we use topically or aromatically to help my son be more focused and calmer and help him stay on task so that he can be more successful in school and at home. Currently we use a wonderful Focus Blend which is made up of the following essential oils: Amyris (West Indian Sandalwood) Patchouli Frankincense Lime Ylang Ylang Sandalwood My son applies the oil to the bottoms of his feet targeting his brain center (reflex point
