Switch & S-t-r-e-t-c-h

Hello!

Did you know that many of your ordinary products can be upgraded and switched out with better options that are safer and healthier for your household?  I wanted to go through that list and highlight one or two substitutions available for each one. 

With each switch, you are building a healthier lifestyle.*  Whether you switch all at once or one step at a time, you can know you are making progress that will pay dividends in your and your family's health as time goes on.  And it does not have to break the bank : )

Here are some options for what we call transfer buying - -  merely switching up products you are already buying elsewhere with better alternatives that in many cases last longer because they are concentrated so a little goes a long way, like the Thieves Household Cleaner,  also the bar soaps which I've been happy to find last and last.   (Valor bar soap is my favorite!)


I am seeing more and more products touting essential oils in their ingredients all over the place.  But I caution you that (1) the essential oils are likely not pure and may have toxins from cheaper processing methods and (2) adding essential oils to products can increase the body's absorption of that product.  This can be a good thing if there are only positive ingredients in the product.  But if the soap, facial wash, or air freshener has ingredients that would have a more negative effect then the addition of any essential oils can contribute to problems.  So be careful when you buy and use products that claim to contain essential oils.

Are you ready to make some switch-ups? Contact me and I’ll be happy to help you set up your order to get the most bang for your buck.  

Happy Oiling!

Essential BRAIN!

Essential BRAIN!
Hello!
I was chatting with a long-time friend whose adult son recently had a brain tumor removed, remarkably similar to our experience two years ago with my now 15-year-old son and comparing photos of our sons' brain tumor scans.  I was again thrilled and amazed at God's goodness in getting both our sons and families through such an experience.  And both emerged having amazing testimonies to share!   

As mamas, we are both concerned with ongoing brain health and healing of these guys.  I am grateful for the doctors, surgeons, and medications as needed to keep seizures away, and that gradual healing is occurring.  But what else can a mom do in our everyday life to support the brains of our families?

Enter essential oils.  (You knew it!)  Now I am still learning and researching and you can too!  However, I want to pique your interest a bit and share some things I have found out about how essential oils can benefit the brain.  (CAUTION:  I do not recommend using off brands, only the purest, highest quality essential oils around anyone with a brain injury due to their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier.)*

Because the molecules of essential oils are so very small, they are more easily absorbed through the skin and also are able to cross the blood-brain barrier.  Inhaled, they go rapidly to the brain through the olfactory system.  

The sesquiterpenes found in many essential oils are oxygen-carrying molecules which can be an important benefit for brain health.  
A few that are high in this constituent are:  
(Frankincense is one of the essential oils included with the Premium Starter Kit which also includes a diffuser and other goodies! This kit is such a great value and a popular first purchase when opening a wholesale account, a great way to save even more from the start!) 

Certain essential oils and particular blends are useful for supporting many brain functions such as focus, memory, and promoting a sense of calm.  I particularly like the blend, aptly named Brain Power™,  which is pre-blended and ready to use with kids or adults.  Diffusing or making up a personal inhaler are good ways to use.  Or you can just drop a couple of drops in your palms and then cup your hands to your mouth and nose then inhale deeply a few times.  That's it!  Easy Peasy.  

If you'd like to know more about how you can get started with any of these brain-boosting essential oils I'd be happy to tell you more.  Just hit the contact button and I'll get back to you asap!  You can also browse the O. f. O. online store here.

Happy Oiling!

Even More than Oils!

Even More than Oils!
Hello!
One of the problems with our standard American diet (S.A.D.) is the prevalence of modern wheat, wheat flour, and wheat products that are inferior to the wheat of yesteryear.  Plus in the U.S. most are "enriched" with questionable ingredients  - - after being overly processed in such a way as to remove much of the nutrients.   

Today, many people have learned that they seem to do better without wheat gluten or with less anyway.  (While people with Celiac are required to avoid gluten entirely, some deemed merely gluten-sensitive may do well when they decrease their overall gluten intake to smaller amounts in their diet than the norm.)  

Check out this video on the Einkorn wheat, an ancient grain grown in France which you now have access to!
