Concentration | Essential Oils

Concentration…. no, not a game.  A little dab’ll do ya!  Have you ever wondered just how concentrated Young Living oils are?  How potent they are?  I hear other people say I’ve got oils from such in such place and they didn’t cost as much as YL.  Have you ever heard the saying ‘you get what you pay for’?   Do you desire to have quality over quantity?  Because let’s face it, when it comes to our health, we want the best.  For ourselves, for our families, for our children.  Am I right?  You don’t choose your family physician by which one is the cheapest.  You choose your doctor based on their credentials, their reputation, their bedside manner, their willingness to go the extra mile to ensure you get the best possible care they can give you.  Trust me.  I know.  Our family doctor for the past 15+ years (heck I’m not even sure how long she’s been in our lives…) does just that.  When you can call her on a Friday night because your kid has just filled a stool full of blood and she talks you through it and meets you in her office the next day (yes, it was a non-emergency) in her coveralls and muck boots you know you’ve got a keeper.  😉  I don’t care how much it costs to see her (if we need her!) I’m there.

You should consider the same principles with your essential oils.  Using therapeutic grade oils means you are using medicinal quality products.  Would you trust your health to a perfume grade oil?  That makes absolutely no sense.  You want something that will work.  Plus, you want something that is not only safe for you, but for your kids as well.  You wouldn’t give a toddler an adult Claritin D allergy pill would you?  Why it even says on the package to consult your doctor for children 12 and under.  Know that I’m using allergies as an example here, but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to treat your child’s allergies as effectively as your adult ones?  With the same products?  Naturally.  Take for instance an ‘Allergy Bomb’ recipe.  You use Lavender, Peppermint and Lemon essential oils in a veggie capsule and you’re good to go.  You can use those same exact oils for your kids….just less drops.  🙂

Another example?  Someone ask me about teething babies this morning.  I use clove oil when I have a toothache.  Thieves is great too!  (because it contains CLOVE! and other germ killing greatness) When I need it, simply put a drop on a q-tip and get to swabbing my mouth around my tooth and gums.  Anbesol’s got nothing on clove oil.  But would I use it this way on a baby?  NO!  I’d use the same oil, but simply dilute it with a carrier oil such as coconut!

So, stop and think about all the medicines (just stick to simple over the counter for now) that you’ve purchased over the years.  One for you, then a separate one for your kid.  Adult anbesol, baby anbesol.  Adult Claritin, children’s benadryl.  Aspirin, baby aspirin.  Ibuprofen, children’s Tylenol.  Almost every product you can think of for everyday ailments have an adult version and a children’s version.

The even better part about therapeutic grade Young Living essential oils…. they are so concentrated it takes just a drop or two for an adult!  You are actually SAVING money!  Why don’t more people take time to do the math?  Not only for your wallet, but for your health.  I’m sorry, you just can’t convince me that synthetically produced chemicals that have a wrap sheet of side effects will ever be a better option for my body than a natural plant the good Lord placed on this earth.  He knew exactly what He was doing with the utmost intricate details.

Consider these cost comparisons of Young Living’s everyday essential oils, compared to the cost of over-the-counter drugs. Not only are the essential oils significantly cheaper, but they build your immune system while solely aiding in healing ALL health ailments that each one of these drugs is designed to individually target/suppress—AND they’re side-effect free! Are you ready to switch?

First we’ll start with the overall complete Premium Kit:

Okay, if that didn’t blow your mind…..  Let’s break it down.  Let’s cover each individual oil in the kit and a little comparison.   Remember, this isn’t ALL these oils can do!  They are so versatile it would take forever to compare all the uses they have.  But let’s start here:

Restless Legs | Peace & Calming

Something oily to blog about everyday you say?  Well, when you reach a certain age, yes.  There’s gonna be something almost everyday that is oil worthy.  Trust me.

I have a terrible time with restless legs.  I’ve never ‘officially’ been diagnosed with Restless Leg Syndrome but my hubs has and from what he describes it’s the same thing I have on occasion.  And it can drive you seriously batty!  It’s like having ants in your pants, you just can’t keep still, and it seems like nothing will work to soothe the constant nagging and irritation it brings.  Maddening some days I tell ya.  Maddening.

When I was surfing the world wide web one day for something else I came across this picture:

1920280_763899510294501_777220744_nand my heart melted.  Seriously.  I thought oh could it be possible that this simple little ‘cure’ could give me some relief?  These were both oils that I had on hand because they come in the starter kit I had purchased.  I’m definitely a rx med avoider.  Like, I seriously tell people I have to be dying before I want to go to a doctor or a hospital.  Don’t get me wrong, there is a need for physicians and I’m not opposed to using them when necessary.  But we do not run to the doctor in our house with every little ache and pain or sniffle.  You’ll pardon my frankness when I say people that do jump and run at the drop of a hat annoy me.  😉  There, I said it.  Suck it up a little nancy! lol

I thought I’d post this today since I was reminded once again last night just how awesome this little duo is for my restless legs.  My left one was about to send me into orbit last night.  Sitting on the couch watching tv with the family and surfin on the laptop and my left leg felt like it was going to flip me clean off the couch.  UGH.  It was awful!!!  After getting seriously perturbed when I’d kicked and jabbed my foot into the end of the sofa for probably 20 minutes I remembered……you ditz!  Go Get Your OILS!

I put a few drops of lavender around my leg and behind my knee.  Massaged a little into my calf, and then put some peace and calming on the bottom of my foot, the back of my neck and inhaled from the bottle like I could suck the juice right out of the dropper.  Seriously, within minutes my leg had ‘calmed down’.  It never ceases to amaze me how quickly these oils can work on some things.  Yes, in certain situations and chronic conditions it can be a timely (but effective!) process.  But there are soooo many things that can get a quick fix, naturally.  If you are just open to trying them.

I headed off to bed shortly after and put another drop or two of peace and calming on the bottoms of both feet, dropped some in the diffuser and hit the sheets.  I slept like a baby and was up earlier than normal this morning.  Okay, I was up earlier because the hubs woke me up when he was getting ready for work, but at least I feel rested.

What are you waiting for?

Get OILY with me!
