10 Essential Oils everyone should have

Article By Darby Line LMT, CCA.

Based on 10 years of using essential oils and the advice of experienced oilers, here’s my list of “must-have oils” that every home should have. Remember, of course, these are therapeutic grade essential oils–not “recreational fragrances” which make up the majority of fragrant oils on the market. There is a HUGE difference! For therapeutic results, always always always use therapeutic grade oils! My choice is Young Living Essential Oils–some of the best on the planet!

VALOR. Young Living’s beautiful, multi-purpose blend is a fantastic first oil to apply immediately to bumps and bruises. Also, apply daily to the soles of the feet or wrists to help balance your energy and ground you.

PANAWAY: Young Living’s pain relief blend that has immediate results for many things (like a heavy can dropped on a toe!).

CYPRESS. A single oil distilled from the branches of cypress trees. Can help stop bleeding when applied on exposed skin away from the bleed–NOT directly on the cut (example: for nosebleeds, apply to inside of upper arm).

PURIFICATION: an outstanding blend for insect stings and bites, and for scrapes; also repels insects. It purifies the air when diffused.

THIEVES: This powerful antimicrobial blend of oils is available in several forms including a handy purse-size spray (great for purifying an area like a toilet seat), hand purifier (so much healthier than the others out on the market!), and of course, the oil itself. Apply to the bottoms of your feet for a boost to your immune system.

LEMON: This antiseptic oil can help bring a fever down with repeated doses on the spine or inside the forearms. It’s a gentle oil, safe for children. 2-4 drops would be plenty for an infant. To help a sluggish digestive system, add 5-6 drops to a glass of water and drink it down.

LAVENDER. A favorite with many people, lavender is calming to the nervous system. It is excellent for minor burns and sunburn–my first choice for either! You can mix 20 drops of lavender in 4 ounces of aloe vera juice and use as a spray on sunburn.

PEPPERMINT. “Cools the body, stimulates the brain, soothes digestion.” It can help bring down a fever, relieve bloating and gas, and keep you alert. It relieves headaches, clears sinuses, helps with smoking cessation, and has been clinically shown to help with IBS. And, a few drops in water it can also decrease appetite.

FRANKINCENSE. A great boost for the immune system, this ancient oil elevates mood and helps with depression, and supports “the connection between heaven and earth.”

PEACE & CALMING. To help with sleep; to relieve stress; to calm hyper kids and animals; any situation where peace or calming is needed–this oil is the best!

Many thanks to Dr. Peter Minkey, whose presentation at Young Living’s 2010 Convention inspired these comments and provided invaluable information on the topic of “The Family First Aid Kit” of essential oils.

Remove Ticks safely from pets and humans

Spring is here! It is time to enjoy walks in nature with your family and pets!  I have found a safe and fast way of removing ticks from you or your pets using essential oils.  Once you get home from your walk make sure to check yourself, your family and pets for ticks. If ever you do find some follow these simple instructions:

Apply a few drops of Purification essential oil onto a Qtip.

Expose and dab  the Tick with the Qtip until it safely backs out of the skin.

Pick up the tick with a kleenex and flush it down the toilet.

This may take a few seconds to several minutes.

Clean the tick bite with Purification Essential oil and you are good to go!
