Physical Ailment


by Penny Keay

Heart burn and/or indigestion is caused from spasms in the stomach or esophagus that allows gas and acid from the stomach to move up towards your throat.

This painful burning sensation can be very uncomfortable.

Hiatal hernias can also contribute to this very painful malady.

There a several oils found in herbal teas you can use to help your stomach, relieve inflammation and help to prevent infection.

Oils can be used singly or blended and inhaled as needed.

Suggestions include Lemon, Fennel or Melissa (Lemon balm) may give relief.

You may prefer to play it very safe, we suggest you just buy herbal teas.

The essential oils are still in the teas and are very effective and safe when consumed in this manner.

Emotional Concern


by Penny Keay

There are many causes of anxiety. Fear of the unknown and apprehension can be causes; some that come to mind include going back to school, or starting school, whether preschool or all the way to college; moving; stressful events at home or work.

Health concerns can cause tension and disturbed sleep.

Occasionally anxiety can even bring on a Panic attack. Where you feel your chest tighten and heart beat quicken, and breathing can be affected. Panics like these are extreme.

Chronic anxiety though can weaken you immune system leaving you open for more and susceptible to diseases.

The best way to avoid anxiety is trying to change the things that give you stress. This is not always possible. So the next thing is trying to make things less stressful.

Using essential oils can help you prepare mentally for uncertainties by allowing you to relax and strengthen you emotional stamina. During times of stress, take time to relax and rest, to help calm your nerves.

Essential oils known to help reduce anxiety include

Bergamot, Cedarwood,Chamomile, Clary Sage, Coriander, Frankincense, Geranium, Jasmine, Juniper, Marjoram, Neroli, Orange, Patchouli, Rose, Rosewood, Vetiver and Ylang ylang.

Try this Quick and easy Anxiety blend to help relieve an anxiety attack.

Neroli - 3 drops
Vanilla - 2 drops
Geranium -2 drops
Rosewood - 2 drops
Ylang ylang - 2 drops
Frankincense - 1 drop
Rose Otto - 1 drop

Mix in a small glass bottle, blend. Place several drops in a personal inhaler or on a tisse to prevent or alleviate attacks.

We do not suggest inhaling directly from the bottle as you won't get the full benefit of all the essential oils in this blend.

Health and Beauty

Dry Hair

by Penny Keay

The hot summer sun, wind, coloring and especially bleaching, hair dryers and blowers, curling or straightening irons can all cause damage and drying to the structure of your hair.

There a few essential oils that will stimulate your bodies production of the natural oils from the sebaceous glands to help restore hair to its' natural oiled condition.

Using Geranium, Lavender, or Juniper may help to stimulate your sebaceous glands. So adding these to your shampoo (one or any combination) will help.

Other oils that can also help include:

Carrot seed, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Myrrh, Palmarosa, Peppermint, Sandalwood, Thyme, and Vetiver.

Again, adding a drop or two to your shampoo or conditioner can help. Another method is to add a drop to your brush and brush through your hair.

Smelly Garbage Bins

by Penny Keay

After removing the garbage from the bin. Rinse/wash with a solution of hot water containing 2-3 drops of Eucalyptus or Tea Tree.

Both of these oils not only deodorize but will suppress the growth of molds and mildew.

They also kill other germs too!

Don't forget to add 1 drop to the bin every now and again!
