Healthy Habits with Essential Oils and Ice

Relieve It orNot

I love magnifying essential oils by using ice packs or hot water bottles to drive in my Young Living Essential Oils deeply. Here are a few quick Healthy Habits for Using Essential Oils with Ice Packs or Hot Water Bottles:

* Put essential oils on area first (learn whether or not you can use them NEAT (undiluted)  or along with your favorite carrier oil (diluted with massage oil like almond, jojoba, etc)

* Put ice pack, baggie or hot water bottle in some type of thin, protective cloth to create a barrier between the essential oiled surface (skin) and the pack/bottle/baggie. Essential oils are designed to pull out toxins, therefore if you put the pack/bottle right up against the oiled surface it will pull out the toxins and possible leach them into your skin.

* Using a thin cloth such as a pillowcase or bandana amplifies the cold, whereas a thicker material like a washcloth or towel subdues the cold sensation.

* The essential oils can bleach/stain cloth so use material that you don’t mind having altered.

* If you are using “hot” oils (cinnamon, clove, etc) realize that it might be too uncomfortable to use them with a hot water bottle. Check and be sure if they need to be diluted before applying to ANY skin surface.

* If you are sensitive to cold/cooling sensation you might want to dilute the oils and/or use a thicker cloth to mute the sensation somewhat.

* Even if you use an icepack with a cloth covering (see my picture) it is still a good idea to use another barrier cloth. I’ve learned this the hard way and had the oils make holes in nice, new ice packs 🙁

Remember: If you are a Young Living Distributor/Wholesaler and not a doctor/licensed healthcare professional, we are not allowed to give medical advice for using essential oils.

Depression the Whispered Killer

Depression the Whispered Killer

My friend Jenny Thrasher Landon is an amazing soul who takes one of the worst events of her family’s life and helps others with a message of hope and support for those who suffer from depression and suicide. Thank you for being in my life Jenny and thank you for sharing your wisdom as well as your heart ❤️

Message from Jenny June 2nd 2016 …

“June 2, 1999 … 17 years ago I lost my dad to suicide. Depression killed my dad.

While blood pressure might be known as the silent killer, Depression is the whispered killer … Whispered with judgment by those who have never experienced it … Whispered with embarrassment by those who have been touched by it … Whispered with fear by those who know it intimately, who are scared by the power it holds, scared that no one understands, and scared that no one can help.

According to the International Suicide Statistics, 1 person dies by suicide every 40 seconds, resulting in over 2,000 deaths a day. We have to start seeing and talking about depression as a serious life threatening illness. As I know it, depression is the result of an imbalance in the body. My dad’s imbalance was first triggered by a steroid treatment he was receiving that was intended to save him from the perils of Sarcoidosis. When I became suicidal, my imbalance was triggered from having my first baby.

Not everyone can pinpoint the trigger that lead to their imbalance which resulted in depression, or even worse, suicide. The good news is that you don’t have to understand the trigger to treat it. I am alive today and I’m able to share my story thanks to the results of receiving acupuncture. It was not a quick fix. It took going every week for a number of months, but it gave me my life back.

Acupuncture didn’t numb the pain and it didn’t mask my symptoms. Acupuncture balanced the energy in my body restoring my ability to think clearly and to feel at peace. I don’t live with depression even though it nearly took my life. I am healthy, happy and truly blessed.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, please talk about it and please explore alternative treatment options.”
