I have been busy testing out oils for you all and I have a few new favorites. But first, if any of you would like a list of oil uses emailed to you, let me know. It is a couple hundred pages of symptoms so you can look up what oils you would want to try. They are great reference pages. You can go to the Forever Green link on the right to look up the oil price or email me. I can mail out of state also. Forever green also has some great packages right now to save on oils. I love the first aide kit that has 7 oils in it. It is a great starter and saves you almost $40. They have the Eucalyptus on back order right now but it should be in this week. Now, on to my new favorites.
We have a few children with wart problems in my house. We see a dermatologist and can't seem to get rid of them. There are a couple different oils for warts, depending on the type of wart, but for the general raised wart, lemongrass is working for us. You want to put it on the wart 2 times a day and it is best if you put it on a cloth or gauze and cover it so it maintains saturation. I made the mistake of putting it on a band aid and covering it. The finger turned orange from the band aide. I would recommend a clear band aide or something else! I have even just been putting the oil directly on the wart and not covering it and they are still shrinking daily. I am sure this is a slower process but works for the lazy person. I am impressed, and... it smells great!
I am sure many of you are up at night with little ones with croup, coughs or general congestion. It is the time of year. I also have a child with asthma so anything regarding the chest is an issue for us. I have decided to take my son off all asthma medication this year as it is very hard on the liver. However, since asthma has landed him in the hospital a good 4 times a year, this had to be a gradual process. It has taken me two years, but we just kicked the last of the meds and he is asthma free. He has been for two years. I owe it to liver cleanse, vitamin B, Spice of Life and exchange. You need to keep them healthy to begin with so if they do sink to the asthmatic level, they don't sink so low. Boost them up. Hopefully this eliminates the problem altogether but if they hit the low, exchange is a good blend for lung issues. You can also make a tea with peppermint, lemon, eucalyptus. One drop each. Add warm water, a little honey and sip. For the little croup kids, you can ever so tenderly go rub some exchange on their chests and throats when they are sleeping to help them open up. You can also use eucalyptus and even across the bridge of their noses. I hold my hand above their nose for a bit so they can inhale it. It works great. Infants can use this but weaken in a bit in some coconut oil.
Lavender is a great calming oil. It has so many uses, one of the most versatile of them all. It is an antiseptic, calming oil to help with anxiety and depression, headaches and migraines, hypertension and earaches. Great for throat infections, bronchitis, asthma, sinus congestion and provides allergy relief. Helps stimulate production of gastric juices and aids in digestion. I love it for its calming effects. Put a few drops in a bath, rub some on the soles of the feet of the little colic child or toddler who needs to relax a bit. It will help the asthmatic calm down in an attack. It is great for headaches especially when mixed with peppermint and rubbed on the forehead and the back of the neck. It is a natural insect repellent and helps with bites and stings. It is a great oil to have on hand.
I am placing an order this week if anyone is interested to save on shipping. The cost is as follows:
