Something is definitely in the air, and I’m not talking about L-O-V-E. Viruses and bacteria are knocking people down like pins in a bowling alley. It seems like everyone I’ve talked to this week has contracted a bug. Some have been put on steroids and told it takes THREE WEEKS to recover. NBC ran a news story highlighting a frightening rise in whooping cough in the Northwest.
It’s time for another educational post on Young Living Essential Oils. Protect your family with some basic products. Essential oils can be your secret weapon against all the nasties in the air. Why? They kill viruses and bacteria; boost the immune system; energize the body. Young Living is the trusted brand I’ve been using for twenty years. Here are two basic products that should be in every medicine cabinet.
Purification is a citronella and melaleuca based blend that is cleans surfaces and enhances the body’s natural immune system. It has a pleasant smell and can be applied before heading out into crowds. Rub it on the neck and hands. A couple drops in bath water adds a therapeutic boost to the cleansing process. Use daily and especially at the first sign of illness. See Product Details.
Thieves is a “hotter” blend that contains clove and cinnamon oil. The blend is named for robbers of dead bodies during the Black Plague in Europe. According to legend, the thieves could strip corpses of valuables and not fall ill themselves. After they were arrested, they revealed themselves as perfumers who knew the protective power of essential oils. The Young Living product is based on that centuries-old formula. Pleasantly pungent, Thieves delivers the one-two punch to germs. Product details.
Essential oils can be used on small children. If there is a sensation of burning, apply some hand lotion to dilute. Rubbing oils onto the bottom of feet after a shower will deliver the benefits to the whole body. Oils can also be used in diffusers or simply inhaled by placing some drops in the palm of the hand and inhaling the fumes.
