Immune Strength Essential Oil for Fall

Starting to prep for the fall and winter “sickie seasons” by restocking some of my favorite oils from Rocky Mountain Oils. One of the top oil blends I like is Immune Strength, which we use on the kids’ feet and diffused in the air if we start getting ill.

They have some new fall scents out that sound like they would smell wonderful running through our diffuser at home. Check them out here!

Cure Everything With 10 Essential Oils

Nice article outlining uses for various essential oils…

Essential-Oils-For-Feet-Lavender

I love essential oils. They have so many uses- for our skin, our health, even cleaning our homes. It can be a little overwhelming with all the choices out there as to what oil to use for which ailment or issue. So I wanted to give you a few basic ones that we should all keep in our medicine cabinets at home. And if you want to read all about oils and how they are made and what their benefits are, go here!

Medicinal

Wintergreen- It has the same chemical properties as aspirin so it’s great as an alternative to all your OTC painkillers due to it’s anesthetic abilities. Put one drop behind your ears, or on your temples, neck or any other part of your body that needs pain relief. However, just like aspirin, it is possible to use too much so take it easy when using this oil.

Best Essential Oils to Help Ward Off Bugs & Ticks

Rocky Mountain Oils posted an article about the best oils to use to help combat a variety of pesty bugs and ticks. We have Bug Off as well as a variety of other oils such as geranium and thyme that I have mixed in a spray bottle. The kids like it if I add a little bit of vanilla as well. So far so good! Check out their website here.

Bugs, Away!

 

Lemon Balm Tea

At our old house we had lemon balm growing. I loved the smell of it when we accidentally mowed over some of it, but I never really took advantage of using it the way I could have! After moving to our new homestead, I realized that I had missed out on all the good properties of lemon balm, and found some plants on sale last year at a garden sale. They came back up very nicely this year in my herb garden off the side of our deck, and now after reading this lovely post from The Simple Times, I look forward to utilizing this fragrant and useful herb!

Rocky Mountain Oils – Kids Kits

I’ve recently been drawn to Rocky Mountain Oils after reading up on the company itself, and reading some research done by folks who spent their time researching EO companies, using the same kind of criteria I would have if I had the time and energy to do so! In the end, it seems that RMO and I will be a good match. With that said, I have just ordered a new diffuser for our home, and their “Bug Off” EO for the kids. I also just noticed they have a Kid’s Kit of several oils diluted properly for use in a roller ball dispenser on children, and it’s on sale right now…

Un-Oatmeal Cream Pie Recipe

This is another recipe I would like to try, namely for the frosting recipe! My friend Jenny at Au Naturale Nutrition posted this a bit ago and I’ve been meaning to try it. I don’t have all the ingredients yet but I’m hoping to get to it in the near future. Reading her post made me aware of some things I didn’t know about oats for instance. I’m not totally gluten free but if this is as tastey as it looks, and the kids like it, I think it could be a great treat!
