It’s the time of year where most of us are run down and sick. I’ve committed myself to sharing what I know about essential oil remedies. So here is what I give my family when any of us are under the weather. I use a blend of essential oils that we call “The bomb”.
|It’s a combination of various essential oils that help boost the immune system. I use Doterra’s On Guard, Frankincense, Lemon, Oregano and Melaleuca essential oils. I’ve researched Doterra and I love their essential oils. You can use it two ways, either ingest it by putting two drops of each oil in a gel capsule, this is something I recommend for adults only. Make sure you eat something fatty when you ingest the oil. You can eat some eggs, yogurt, something fatty to dilute it. Take the gel capsule three or four times a day and within two days you will feel better.
For children and my husband who refuses to ingest the oils, I put 6 drops of each oil in a roller bottle and I add fractionated coconut oil to the rest of the bottle. I role it on feet, back of the neck, and down the spine.
For babies and toddlers, use 2 drops of each oil and fill the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil, roll it on the bottoms of the feet, in the back of the neck and down the spine every couple of hours.
You can buy both the gel caps and roller bottles from amazon.
Try it, you’ll love it.

They are no longer little girls, soon they will blossom into lovely young ladies.It’s our job to empower them to grow up feeling secure in themselves. Powerful girls learn to take action, making positive choices about their own lives and doing positive things for others. Here are some ways that many parenting experts say will help us raise powerful girls….Encourage her to pursue a passion.Let her have a voice in making decisions.Let her solve issues on her own rather than fixing things for her.Encourage her to go beyond her comfort zone, to take physical risksEncourage your daughter to participate in team-building activities or join organizations that rely on teamwork.
Having close friends that are like-minded and most importantly kind is an important part of her growing up. Help them foster positive, loving relationships. Let her know you love her because of who she is, not because of what she weighs or how she looks.
.Allow her to disagree.Make time to listen to her on a regular basis.Listen more, talk less.Limit your daughter’s exposure to the media and popular culture.Talk with her about her body and sex in ways appropriate to her age and your values. Yes, it’s really time to do that!Keep her active.
Be the person you want her to be. Love yourself so that she can love herself too.Help foster and flourish her relationships with a powerful women in your family, like an aunt or grandmother.Most importantly, don’t forget to stop and really enjoy this special time with them. Enjoy them!
