Wild Orange Saves the Day!!

I am currently coaching 2 First Lego League teams.  The Galileogo Geeks (8th graders) and the Galilego Geeks v2.0 (6th graders).  We meet on Tuesdays & Thursdays after school.  As you can imagine it is a bit crazy! My 8th graders are very diligent and focused because they know what they need to do to be successful.  However, my rooky 6th graders are less focused and more busy :)  I have had times where I have come home feeling like I had just come from Crazy Town.  Yesterday, I decided to really put my oils to work!!  I took my Lotus Diffuser and Wild Orange.  (I had read that Wild Orange is a sedative and tonic :))

I can honestly say it was the BEST day ever!  Half of the boys were hovering over the diffuser just breathing it in.  They loved it.  While they breathed it all in we had the best conversation on being a Team, Gracious Professionalism, and coopertition.  That was a first!  Then we got a great start on writing our skit for our presentation-that was real progress!  Then, they successfully participated in a wonderful team building activity.  I have a couple of grandparents who have been coming for the last 3-4 times and as they were leaving they said, "Wow, that is the best they have ever done!."  Hooray for wild orange!! It was a GREAT day for all.

As you can imagine I will be taking my diffuser and wild orange to every practice!!

Slim & Sassy Skinny Wrap

Slim & Sassy Body Wrap!!

I recently came across this on the doTERRA Diamond Club site. It was too great to not share!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: I recently read a suggestion that I thought beneficial... instead of using plastic wrap made of who knows what...use muslin cloth.

I got the recipe from Becky Cox.
5-10 drops S&S
1 tsp FCO.
Combine the two ingredients and rub on "problem area" ( Make sure it is completely absorbed ) then wrap area with regular old plastic wrap! :) Leave on for 20 minutes to as long as the person would like! It detoxes! Its running like wildfire on my team! I have a gal who l lost 4 inches from her first wrap! I teach the regular class intro, and while I am teaching I have a few IPC's wrapping new guests! That way they are feeling it tingle and working as I teach about essential oils. Then I focus on the individual ingredients found in Slim and Sassy and the benefits that they are receiving on top of inch loss! * just remi…

Roller Bottle Remedies

Lately, I have really enjoyed using different roller bottle recipes on myself & my kids. They make oil use quick & easy and less messy. You know the experience, where you are so excited that your kids are taking care of their own health, yet they are dripping and dropping oil clumsily all over the place :) 
Here are some great roller bottle solutions:

Bloody Nose Remedy with Essential Oils

Yesterday my daughter Elsie got a really bad bloody nose.  In fact, it kinda freaked me out.  Usually, when one of my kids gets a nose bleed it doesn't last long-a tissue later and it is all cleared up.  With Elsie, she was literally dripping for about 5 minutes from both nose holes. Yuck!  After 5 minutes with no stopping in site, my mom energy kicked in and sent my to my wonderful "Modern Essentials" book! 

For nose bleeds: Combine 2 drops cypress, 1 drop helichrysum, and 2 dropslemon in 8 oz. (1 cup) ice water.  Soak a cloth in the water, and apply the cloth to nose and back of neck. I am here to report that it worked! From the time it took me to take my son to scouts and back it had completely stopped without another occurance! Wahoo!

Also, since her clothes were covered with the red stuff, I quickly put them into a bucket of cold water and a tbsp. of the new On Guard Cleaner Concentrate. After a wash...stain free clothes.
