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!

Hello!

Question:  When Mom wants what’s best for her family and the family doesn’t get it, what’s a mom to do?  

You are ready to infuse your home and family with the goodness of pure essential oils and have got a vision for how much healthier you would all be if they would embrace your new passion with you.  

But they don’t.  At least not yet. 


Rather than going head to head with your family, what are some less combative ways to get them on the oily train with you?  


Here are a few suggestions:


  • Diffuse.  When you diffuse essential oils the whole household benefits.  I recommend using something uplifting and not too “strange”, like lemon or orange essential oil, and when they warm up to it a bit try getting their input to choose what they would like.  

  • Trade out soap and shampoo.  Using essential oils infused soaps and shampoos is an easy way to help your family derive the benefits of essential oils and to hook them on it.  Just give it a try.  Try our Valor bar soap for the bath and Thieves Foaming Hand Soap for the sink.  KidScents shampoo is great for the younger set (I use it, too!) Or choose a more adult one for you & Dad or the teens.

  • Vitality oils in your recipes here and there. Just add them last so they are not heated at high heat, and remember just a drop will do! (The essential oils with the white "Vitality" labels are approved for internal/dietary use!)

  • Trade out your vitamins.  Essential oil infused vitamins and supplements are absorbed better by the body!  Try chewable MightyVites for the kiddos.  

  • Have remedy’s ready for when someone has sore muscles or boo-boos - - a quick way to get them to become a believer is when they experience the relief for themselves!  

  • One more - - Thieves Household Cleaner - - make up spray bottles of this concentrate for whenever spills and splatters happen as well as for regular cleaning.  Not only will you be avoiding the toxic chemicals in other cleaning products but you and your family will benefit from the essential oils as well.  And they will be getting used to the natural plant scents rather than the synthetic fragrances of other products.


If these tips are helpful to you, ask me how to get more tips like these so you can infuse your home and family with the goodness of essential oils.  And feel free to browse the O. f. O. online store here.

Happy Oiling!
