I’m SO sorry I was unable to host class last night. Truth be told, I’ve been having an extremely hard time with my 12 month-old and sleep lately. A couple of times this past week or so she’s woken up around midnight and will be WIDE awake until 3-3:30 tossing and turning and I just don’t know what to do. I’ll try to hold her, rock her, feed her a bottle, bring her into bed, diffuse or topically apply SleepyIze, and she’s just so restless! Tonight, every time I tried to put her down she would cry uncontrollably, also waking up my toddler. If you have any tips, HELP! She did just start walking (developmental leap?), is eating like there is no tomorrow (growth spurt?), and her lateral incisors are cutting through. Trifecta of storms?!
ANYWAY, I planned on chatting about immune support, amazing fall diffuser blends, and cleaning with Thieves. Now, I’m typing it on my laptop in bed in the pitch black as the baby sleeps on me!
* Just a quick disclaimer—I’m not a medical professional, and not making any claims that these oils can treat, cure, or heal a disease. As always, I encourage you to consult a medical professional before use! *
These are three of my favorite oils when it comes to immune support AND fall scents! Combine them in the diffuser together, or on their own, not only to fill your house with spicy fall scents, BUT ALSO for the added benefit of their immune supporting properties.
CLOVE has a spicy, warm scent that is instantly familiar because of its association to fall and winter holidays. To produce clove essential oil, the flower bud and plant stem are steam distilled, and the rich, strong oil that results from this process contains eugenol, which is a natural anesthetic and antiseptic.
NUTMEG also has a warm, spicy aroma that is energizing and uplifting. It is steam distilled from the fruit and seeds of the evergreen tree indigenous to Indonesia. Nutmeg oil has many health benefits, including cognitive function support, immune support, and powerful antioxidants.
CINNAMON BARK is warm and comforting and can support healthy digestion and help maintain a healthy immune system.
Have you tried this trio of oils before?! Trust me, you’ll want them in your collection, especially for those fall diffuser blends!!
THIEVES (INCLUDED IN STARTER KIT)
When I think of any change of season, including fall, I immediately think of Thieves. Whether you have been using oils for a long time or are brand new to this journey, Thieves will always be one of your go-to’s for “immune support, cleansing to the digestive system, and general wellness support.”
Thieves dates back to 15th century during the plague. Legend has it that thieves rubbed this blend of oil on themselves to avoid contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and sick. When the thieves were captured, they were asked to share their secret to staying immune in exchange for a more lenient punishment. What was in it? You guessed it! A blend of highly potent oils that was appropriately dubbed “Thieves”. Thieves is a combination of cinnamon bark, clove, eucalyptus radiata, lemon, and rosemary.
Suggested uses include:
- Making a Wellness “Tea”: cup of hot water + glob of local raw honey + 1 drop of Thieves essential oil + juice of lemon OR 1 drop of Lemon essential oil. (If my throat feels funny I’ll also add 1 drop of Copaiba essential oil.) And by the way, these are all starter kit oils!
- Diffusing 6–8 drops to help cleanse, freshen, neutralize and purify air. Customize your Thieves experience by adding a few drops of Orange, Tangerine, or Nutmeg essential oil.
- Creating an “immunity” or “wellness” roller with Thieves and a carrier oil, and apply to the bottoms of feet in the morning for immune system support.
R.C. (A PREVIOUS STARTER KIT OIL) is a powerful blend of Spruce, Cypress, and three types of Eucalyptus oils (E. globulus, E. radiata, and E. citriodora). Place a few drops in a hot bath or shower. The warm water will calm and soothe you, and the oil will diffuse with the steam for an invigorating and empowering experience. SERIOUSLY, such a great oil to have on hand!
RAVEN (INCLUDED IN STARTER KIT) is a cleansing blend of Ravintsara, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Radiata, and other essential oils. Raven creates a cooling sensation when applied topically to the chest and throat.
EUCALYPTUS RADIATA is steam distilled from the leaves of an evergreen tree native to Australia that is part of the Myrtaceae plant family. Eucalyptus Radiata is loved for its fresh, sharply clean aroma. Diffuse it to promote a stimulating and rejuvenating environment. You can also turn your shower into a spa by putting 5–10 drops of Eucalyptus oil on a warm, damp washcloth and placing it in the shower just out of direct contact with the water before showering. It will create cooling, Eucalyptus-infused steam!
BREATHE AGAIN ROLL-ON is a convenient roll-on applicator that combines Peppermint, Myrtle, and Copaiba with four different types of eucalyptus—including Eucalyptus Blue grown on Young Living’s Ecuador farm—to create a powerful, invigorating experience. Keep it in your car, purse, pocket, or bag and simply apply it as needed under your nose or on your head, neck, or chest to awaken and invigorate your senses.
SNIFFLEEASE (KIDSCENTS) is a rejuvenating and refreshing blend formulated just for kids. Diffuse in children’s bedrooms at night or during nap times. You may also use this blend to create essential oil-infused tissues. Remove tissues from their box. Pour 3–4 drops of SniffleEase onto a cotton ball, and seal the cotton ball with your tissues in an airtight container for 24 hours. Remove tissues from airtight container and replace in box. Repeat as needed to refresh scent.
INNER DEFENSE is an essential oil supplement that reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support. The liquid softgels dissolve quickly for maximum results. Take 1 softgel daily (a.m.) or take 1 softgel 3-5 times daily when needed.
The BEST part is, you get this for FREE if you spend 190PV on Essential Rewards in the month of September. I knew I didn’t want to look back and regret not getting this if I started feeling under the weather this fall, so I had to have it!
Lastly, I’ll leave you off with some delicious smelling fall diffuser blends! 🍁🍃🍂
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
Happy oiling 🙂
