Recent Oily Successes...

I have been delinquent in posting much recently...where do the days go?? I wanted to share some of our recent oily successes because they have been many in recent days and weeks! It always excites me when oils wow me time and time again. Here's a list of just a recent few...

  1. We found a wart cure!! Our boys for some odd reason seem to struggle with persistent warts and we have tried a couple of the recommended oils to try and get rid of them (Frankincense, Oregano) and have not been successful. I read that someone tried a layering of Melrose, Clove, Purification and Thieves. It was a pain to layer 4 oils on each wart so I added the 4 oils in equal proportion into a roller bottle. We began applying the combo to the warts before bed each night. I am so thrilled to say that after about a month and a half 3 warts have been dissolved!! 
  2. Both of our boys have always been early risers - up until recently, my oldest son would frequently be awake before 6. Within the last month, I have used a combination of Cedarwood and Stress Away at night on him for his sleepy-time oils. He has consistently been sleeping until 6:45/7 am! An hour of extra sleep for him has been such a wonderful thing for both him and us!
  3. I have discovered that Lime is another great grease stain remover.
  4. We took a nature walk in a wooded area by our house on Friday and before we left I spritzed everyone with Purification mixed into some water in a spray bottle. Our woods are known for being infested with ticks. We managed to come home without any ticks or bug bites - a big plus! Ticks freak me out!! 
  5. We have a terrible problem with gnats in the spring and fall when we want to have our windows open. The gnats are so bad that it is impossible to keep window open. I used the same Purification/water blend in the spray bottle and sprayed my screens. I have been able to keep my windows open as much as I please!! 
  6. My five year old was consistently complaining (particularly at night) about his legs hurting. I figured out that he may be suffering from growing pains so I looked up growing pains in my reference book. Sure enough, there was a recipe using a layering of Wintergreen, Cypress, and Peppermint, followed 5 minutes later by PanAway. I applied it each night before bed and he stopped complaining. He did remind me each night to be sure I applied it:-) 
  7. My hubby had been sleeping terribly for several nights (he didn't mention it so I didn't think to oil him up!) and last week he asked me to oil him before bed because he was desperate for some good sleep. After a couple nights he told me: "Man those oils are awesome - I have been sleeping so incredibly well the last couple nights". Oh how I love Cedarwood!
I am so thankful for oils!!
