The Essential Oils Guide for Mums.

How can we replace harmful chemicals with Essential Oils?

Essential Oils can be used in 3 ways.

  • Aromatically – in a diffuser, on your pillow case, sprayed in the room, on your shirt collar or just simply smelt out of the bottle.Topically – placed on pulse points, souls of your feet, or rubbed into muscles, joints or affected body parts
  • Topically – placed on pulse points, souls of your feet, or rubbed into muscles, joints or affected body partsInternally  – in your water, cooking or in
  • Internally  – in your water, cooking or in a empty veggie cap. Please note that all oils are not created equal and it is due to the incredible quality of doTERRA oils that we are able to safely do this.

How to Reduce Stress, Improve Sleep and Increase Energy with Essential Oils

Essential Oils Guide for Mums,

When you are Stressed Use…….

  • Clary Calm. I call this my ‘Crazy Mummy Oil’, it promotes calming but also supports a healthy hormonal balance. It gets rolled on my pulse points and belly during ‘that time of the month’  and at the first sign of a stressful situation. Which could be just trying to get the kids out the door to school in the morning.
  • Lavender. Lavender is the swiss army knife of Oils and is great for calming when used aromatically and topically.
  • Citrus Oils. Citrus Oils such as Lemon, Wild Orange and Bergamot are incredible to diffuse in the room to lesson heightened tension.

To Improve Sleep Use…….

  • Lavender. Diffused in the room, or massaged into the soles of feet and within minutes you will be feeling calmer and preparing your body for a restful state.
  • Lavender Peace. Lavender Peace is a gorgeous blend of grounding oils (Lavender, Cedarwood, Ho Woo, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, Roman Chamomile) that helps set a calm tone and relaxes the body.  Can be massaged into the soles of your feet before bed, diffused or I even mix some with water in a little spray bottle and spritz my families pillows before bed. Lavender Peace is also a great replacement for an everyday Pure-fume.

When you want to feel energised try……

  • Peppermint. Peppermint is not only great for headaches, temperature regulation and calming upset tummies, it is also fantastic as an energiser. Diffused with Wild Orange is a morning favourite in our home.
  • Motivate. Motivate is a DōTerra blend containing Peppermint, Coriander, Clementine, Basil, Rosemary and Vanilla. It is my get out of bed and workout blend, the do the things you don’t want to feel like doing initiator!

For Calm Kids…….

  • Peace Oil.  The combinations of the oils in this blends are incredibly powerful to promote feelings of contentment, composure and reassurance when feeling overwhelmed. A perfect tantrum tamer and help to settle a restless child.
  • Lavender Peace. Otherwise known as the Chief Calmer. This is the blend that you can put in the diffuser after your kids bath time and when I am settling into slow down mode before bed. I also put it on in my kids rooms about 30 minutes before they go to bed, to set a calm tone.

To Breathe Easy try…..

Air. A gorgeous combination of Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Lemon and Peppermint that assists open up airways. Amazing for those who suffer from respiratory concerns but also during seasons of allergies and coughs and colds. This can be diffused in a room or bedroom overnight, as well as rubbed diluted on chest and feet. I also love to use Air before a workout or during times of stress when you feel like you need a reminder to breathe.

For Coughs and Colds……

  • Tea Tree. Often referred to as Melaleuca, is a great infection buster. As an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, decongestant and anti oxidant, it makes for a brilliant antiseptic. Diffuse for aromatic benefits, which helps stop the spread of germs between family members.
  • Oregano, Lemon, Tea Tree, OnGuard, and Frankincense.  This is the famous 5 used in what I loving refer to as a ‘Flu Bomb’. 2 drops of each in an empty veggie cap at the first sign of illness and it will have you sorted out pretty quick. No doctors prescriptions required.

Head tension…….

  • Peppermint. A drop on temples and back of neck and you will feel the tension dissipate. Also a great addition to your protein smoothie and homemade dark chocolate!
  • Past Tense. A roller blend containing Wintergreen, Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, Cilantro, Roman Chamomile, Marjoram, Basil and Rosemary. Apply to temples, the forehead, the back of neck and pulse points on wrists. A handy one to keep in your handbag or top drawer at work.

Focus……

InTune.  A roller bottle blend that allows you to sort through the 100 things you think you need to do and focus on ONE! Not only a winner for us as Mum’s but also for your kids, especially around Homework time.

To help reduce bloating and improved digestion…..

Zengest . Our go to for any digestive concerns. From diarrhoea to constipation, gas and bloated feelings. Also a winner after indulging in foods our bodies are perhaps not used to. Can be rolled on (diluted with a carrier oil) on our stomachs, taken in a shot glass with water or sipped on throughout the day in your glass water bottle.

To support Immune Health…….

OnGuard. This baby gets rolled onto the soles of feet at the beginning of each school term, diffused at the first sign of a sniffle or body ache and taken internally when I feel my glands start to get a little swollen and my body is giving me a gentle reminder to slow down.
Oregano. I thought it may have been great just for my Pasta sauce but little did I know that Oregano is nature’s very own Antibiotic. Considered a hot oil, it needs to be used carefully and heavily diluted when used on your skin. But can also be diffused and taken internally via a veggie cap.

Tired Muscles / Joint pain……….

Deep Blue. Deep Blue is an active person’s best friend. Deep blue is my go to for sore muscles and joints. Like most oils I use them as a preventative as much as a treatment, in other words before workouts and after. I have also found it super helpful for period cramping and my aches and pains.

Did you know that the average woman rubs or sprays approximately 750 chemicals on her body every day? 

All of these, contain chemicals and toxins that love to mess with our hormonal balance and body chemistry.

If you’re looking for a toxic free lifestyle then essential oils are the way to go.

As you usher in the new year, here is a beautiful reminder to have grace during those messy moments. 

Especially during the holidays, our life can feel a bit messy… 

…and that’s where magic happens.

It’s time to let go of perfection and be okay with the process, especially if it gets messy!

Which oil I’m using this week

doTERRA Frankincense Essential Oilften called the “king of oils,” promoting feelings of peace and overall wellness when used aromatically, while topical and internal uses provide modern health benefits.

Ways to use Frankincense:

  • Rub Frankincense and Lavender on your neck and shoulders to relieve tension and tired muscles. 
  • Add a drop to your moisturiser to reduce the appearance of fine lines and skin pigmentation. (I have personally seen INCREDIBLE results with my own skincare)
  • Diffuse 2 drops of Frankincense with 3 drops Peppermint and Wild Orange to boost your mood and energy instantly.
  • Take one to two drops in a veggie capsule daily to support healthy cellular function.

Essential oil blend I’m using as we head towards the New Year.

New Year Abundance Diffuser Blend

2 drops Bergamot 
2 drop Ylang Ylang

Directions: Add essential oils drops to a cold diffuser with water and run for 30 minutes to 1 hour each morning while you are getting ready for a new day and new year. 

Note: This blend is ideal to add to a diffuser to start your morning with positive energy and abundance. You can also add 1 drop of each to your hands and take three deep breathes to instantly boost your mood.

*Lemon essential oil has multiple uses and benefits and is mostly known as a powerful aromatic and internal cleanser. It uplifts and balances the mood.

*Melaleuca essential oil is more commonly called Tea Tree oil and has powerful anti-bacterial properties. It is renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin and it protects against environmental and seasonal threats.

* Frankincense oil (THE KING OF OILS) is considered a tonic, as it benefits all the systems operating in the body, including the digestive, respiratory, nervous and excretory systems. It also aids the absorption of nutrients and strengthens your immune system.

It’s been used for 1000s of years and is one of the gifts Jesus received from the 3 kings. Frankincense oil has been found useful for certain health conditions, such as:

• Occasional joint discomfort — Research by Cardiff University scientists found that frankincense can aid in inhibiting the production of key inflammatory molecules, helping prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue that causes these conditions. Supports respiratory health.

• Promotes Oral Health — The antiseptic qualities of this oil can help to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

• Occasional digestive discomfort— Frankincense oil can help speed up the secretion of gastric juices, bile and acids, and help stimulate peristaltic motion to allow food to move properly through your intestines.

• Uterine health — Frankincense oil regulates oestrogen production in women and helps promotes a healthy menstrual cycle and promotes uterine health. It also help regulate the menstrual cycle of premenopausal women.

Good quality essential oils are a healthier option to take rather than “over the counter medications”.

Why?

Because essential oils treat the root cause of the problem, whereas “over the counter medications” only masks the symptoms.

Effects of sleep loss on the Immune system.

SLEEP LOSS AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Recall the last time you had the flu. Miserable, wasn’t it? Runny nose, achy bones, sore throat, heavy cough, and a total lack of energy.

You probably just wanted to curl up in bed and sleep. As well you should.

Your body is trying to sleep itself well. An intimate and bidirectional association exists between your sleep and your immune system.

Sleep fights against infection and sickness by deploying all manner of weaponry within your immune arsenal, cladding you with protection.

When you do fall ill, the immune system actively stimulates the sleep system, demanding more bed rest to help reinforce the war effort.

Reduce sleep for even a single night, and that invisible suit of immune resilience is rudely stripped from your body.

Studies show that less than 5 hours of sleep, 5-6 hours of sleep, 6-7 hours of sleep and 7-8 hours of sleep that there is a clear, linear relationship with infection rate.

The less sleep an individual was getting in the week before facing the active common cold virus, the more likely it was they would be infected and catch a cold. In those sleeping 5 hours on average, the infection rate was almost 50%. In those sleeping 7 hours or more a night in the week prior, the infection rate was just 18%.

Considering that infectious illnesses, such as the common cold, influenza, and pneumonia, are among the leading causes of death in developed countries, doctors and governments would do well to stress the critical importance of sufficient sleep during the flu season.

For more on this subject I heartedly recommend you read a book by Matthew Walker ~ Why we Sleep.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Are you new to Essential Oils?

Essential oils can be an overwhelming topic if you’re trying to learn everything and anything, as quickly as possible. 😰

But with a few basic know-hows, you can get started with diffusing them in your home whilst getting the most benefits out of them! 😃

So let’s get straight into it:

1. Choose a few favourites 😍 – Diffusing essential oils becomes a lot easier if you’re not stuck there choosing between all 94 types and feeling like you have to research them all. But if you find out what you can get a hold of and which scents seem familiar/interesting to you, then take a look at the benefits and use them! This makes it so much easier for you to actually get stuck into using essential oils, rather than getting pulled into all the information that’s out there.

2. Follow a guideline – An essential oil chart is a great place to start if you’re worried about what will smell right with what when figuring out how to make blends. So stick to the guidelines and do what’s tried-and-tested until you get a gist of how it all works. Then you can get the most out of your oils without being put off by something that smells way too strong or just awful.

3. Get a good quality carrier oil 💧 or oil diffuser – All the benefits of essential oils are either from diffusing them or applying them onto your body. So if you use a good quality carrier oil, such as jojoba oil, and invest into a diffuser, you can get all the benefits you could dream of without any complicated recipes. Sure, those recipes will be useful later on but for now, just learn which essential oils are working well for you by simply diluting them before use.

4. If you’re trying to solve a specific problem, concentrate on how you feel 😌 – Essential oils aren’t one size fits all. Different oils work for different people and do different things. So if you’re using them to ease the headaches you get whilst working, to ease your insomnia or to make it easier to wake up 😴 then you’ll need to experiment a little until you find what works best for you. And if you’re doing it just to make your home smell nice, help you feel relaxed and to add an ambience to your rooms, then you need to think about what smells best rather than the therapeutic benefits.

5. Make sure it’s the real deal – There are a lot of fake essential oils out there that are diluted with vegetable oils or just don’t contain any of the real thing at all. Anything that’s casually called a fragrance oil or has more than one ingredient on the list won’t be pure, so keep an eye out for that. If you already have essential oils, then try adding a drop to some tissue paper and see if it leaves a stain once dried. If it does then it’s been mixed with other ingredients and if it doesn’t, it’s most likely pure (some essential oils are thicker than others and can still leave a stain, but this should help you in most cases). 😃

So there you have it!

These 5 tips should help you out whether you’re new to essential oils or not, but if you want to know more about anything in particular just send me an email julie@holistichealthandwellbeinggroup.com
