Athletes Foot natural remedy

Tinea pedis or athletes foot is a fungal infection of the skin that infects the feet. This fungus loves warm moist environment to which many feet are subject. A good way to start with the healing process is to keep the feet dry and stay out of tight shoes.

tea-tree-essential-oilEssential oils are a great way to help you get rid of the infection and here is how:
The single oils used for this treatment are tea tree & lavender or tea tree, peppermint & mountain savory. Existing Young Living Blends : Melrose, Thieves, Purification, ClaraDerm

Athlete’s Foot Natural Remedy:
First Athletes foot blend :
8 drops of teat tree 2 drops of lavender
Second Athletes foot blend : 8 drops of tea tree 4 drops of peppermint 2 drops of mountain savory

You can either dilute the blends with some vegetable oil (50/50) or use them directly onto the feet.
Apply 5 to 7 drops of your blend onto your toes and around your toe nails making sure you cover all areas. Repeat this daily until the the infection has completely cleared. This is a very efficient way of getting rid of Athletes Foot without having to use heavy chemical products.

Peppermint Essential Oil

If I had to choose just two Essential Oils to carry with me at all times I would without a doubt pick Lavender and Peppermint essential oil.

Peppermint is your best friend when it comes to helping you cope with indigestion, stomach ache, nausea, headache,mosquitoes and much much more!

If ever you are suffering from any digestion related pains or discomfort applying one or two drops into your palm and massaging your stomach will bring relief within minutes. If you need a little extra help especially for nausea put one drop into a small glass of water and drink it, this will produce a great cooling effect in your stomach and you will feel much lighter.

To counter a sudden headache I suggest drinking a large glass of pure water then putting one drop of Peppermint Essential Oil in your palms, rubbing them together then cupping your mouth and nose and inhaling deeply through your nose, exhaling through your mouth. This is a strong oil and the fumes might burn your eyes a little, just make sure to not rub your eyes with your oily fingers!

On a hot summer day you can easily cool off or stay cool by applying a drop or less of peppermint essential oil behind your ears, on your chest and the back of your neck, the cooling effect will be immediate.

Adding  a drop of Peppermint Essential Oil to your favorite Natural Lemonade is also a great way to feel refreshed and invigorated on a warm day.

With peppermint essential oil you can also:

  • Relieve pain to bumps & bruises by applying Peppermint essential oil immediately to the injured area.
  • Reduce fever by rubbing a few drops of Peppermint oil on the bottoms of the feet.
  • Ease nausea, morning sickness or motion sickness by massaging several drops of Peppermint oil on the abdomen and soles of the feet.
  • Relieve a headache by rubbing a drop of Peppermint oil on the temples, forehead, and back of the neck. Caution: keep peppermint oil away from the eyes and never, ever put essential oil in your eyes!
  • Improve alertness and concentration by placing one drop of Peppermint oil on the tongue and rub another drop under the nose. Keep a bottle in your car for long drives; in your desk drawer at work for that mid-afternoon slump!
  • Enhance concentration and improve recall by diffusing Peppermint oil in the room while studying.
  • Relieve nasal and sinus congestion by placing a drop of Peppermint oil on the tongue and inhaling into the nose.
  • Flavor food with peppermint oil! See great naturally-sweetened Peppermint Brownie recipe below!
  • Kill aphids on houseplants by adding 4-5 drops of Peppermint oil to 4 ounces of water in a spray bottle. Shake well and spray the plants.
  • Curb the appetite and lessen the impulse to overeat by inhaling peppermint oil.

A word to the wise : Peppermint is very very strong, this is an oil where the rule ‘Less is More’ really applies! When using peppermint oil make sure you never use more than 2 drops. If ever the cooling effect is too strong for you dilute the essential oil with vegetable oil, NEVER USE WATER as this will only spread the oil and not dilute it.

Always use Therapeutic grade Essential Oils – Buy Young Living Essential Oils

Natural Remedy for Seasonal Allergies – Essential Oils Testimonials

As long as I can remember my allergies have held me hostage from doing anything outdoors without being miserable. As a child, my grandmother would give me Benedryl and have to close the windows if someone was mowing the grass, of course it would knock me out. As I got older there were various medicatios that I hated to take because of the way they made me feel.
At long last, I found a natural remedy for seasonal allergies with Young Living Essential Oils! At the beginning of the season, I take 4 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of lemon and 1 of peppermint in a capsule 3 times a day for 3 or 4 days (I can feel when I am up to par!) and that will do me for the season! If I feel effects of the pollens in the air, I do it again for a couple days and I am good… actually I am GREAT! I have owned a convertible for the past year, never in my lifetime did I think that would even be an option!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, many good stories in our family!

Spring Essentials for strong immune system and less allergies

The sun is out, flowers are blooming, life is coming back in full force. For some though this means allergy and bug bite season is starting. Spring is meant to be spent outside enjoying the colors and natures re-birth.
To help you enjoy spring and summer I have made a list of some of my personal Spring Essentials. I hope this will come in handy.

Allergy relief:

My favorite oil/blend to help calm allergies is RC:

This blend is composed of 3 types of eucalyptus, lavender, marjoram, peppermint and is perfect to soothe the respiratory system and provide sinus relief. I recommend putting one drop in the palm of your hand and cupping your nose and mouth and inhaling deeply a few times a day or when needed. You will feel a difference right away.

Bug bites:

Prevention: For those evening bbq parties I would recommend putting a few drops of any of the following on your wrists, ankles, behind your knees, elbows and neck:

Lemongrass: On top of aiding the circulatory system and being a strong antioxidant, Lemongrass is also a great mosquito and bug repellent.

Lemon and Peppermint would also be a great combination. A word to the wise, Peppermint is very strong so less is more. Avoid using Lemongrass or Lemon if you are going in the sun as these can stain your skin.

Bug bite relief:

For those itchy bug bites I recommend using Lavender alone or Lavender and Peppermint together. Another great solution for bug bites is Purification.
On a side note, Lavender essential oil is a powerful antibacterial and can be applied directly to cuts and scrapes to help disinfect and heal the cut.

Read testimonials on bug bites from everyday oil users here.

I also recommend adding NingXia Red to your daily regimen, it now comes in individual packs that are easy to take with you and have on the go whenever you need it.  NingXia red is a natural infusion of Whole Ningxia wolfberry puree, Blueberry juice, Pomegranate juice, Apricot juice, Raspberry juice, Organic blue agave nectar, Grape seed, skin, and stem, Lemon rind, Orange rind.  Needless to say it is one of the highest antioxidant and natural energy boosting drinks on the market today. It’s pure health and life in a bottle!
