Diffuser, Yoga Sunday

Arrow

The Pose of the day is the ARROW pose! To illicit Balance in all areas of life. Straight, Strong and Focused.

As you start the pose follow the mantra and Finish with “I dare to be strong”.

1. I am straight as an arrow

2. I am long and focused

3. I fly through the air

4. I dare to be strong

I have worked through some Out with/In with statements and focusing on positive energy this week. My favorite for this pose, “Out with the stress, In with the peace”.

The oils I was drawn to before this pose were Passion and Peace. I rolled them on my pulse points on my wrist and neck and rubbed them in to increase blood flow.

Peace is an emotions blend also called the Reassuring blend. It helps fight emotions of anger, depression and grief as well has illicit happiness and is uplifting.

Diffuser, DIY, Individual Oil

Feeling Gross!

IT HAPPENED! My 9 month old was crawling around on the floor at the doctor and the next day he was sick! We used his open airways blend (Cardamom, Frankincense and FCO) and diffused breathe, but on Sunday he secured my fate by sneezing his green snot all over my eyes and mouth! I really hate calling in sick because in my line of work there are more people affected then just me.

Menthol containing Essential oils are starting to have some supporting research showing they have a positive effect with inhalation on “mucus clearance in chronic airways obstruction.”

Menthol containing Essential oils are : Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Breathe, Deep blue and spearmint!

So for today’s post I will outline what I did to make myself functional and feeling better in 3 days!

Breathe Vapor rub stick on the chest and feet to open my airways!

On guard throat drops: AMAZING!

On Guard beadlets

Diffuse on Guard and breathe with serenity

Apply motivate and cheer in the morning and as needed through the day

Drink Starbucks citrus defenders and Lime water with raspberries

Use Elderberry drops (Thanks to my colleague Becky!)

And Lastly the use of my home made eucalyptus shower melts!

Here is the recipe!

To make your own shower melts you will need:

1 1/2 cups cornstarch
20 drops Breathe essential oil
20 drops eucalyptus essential oil
1 Tablespoon Witch Hazel (optional)
Food Coloring (optional)- DID NOT USE!
Water – 3 to 4 tablespoons to start, more will likely be needed
ice cube tray or silicone molds
medium size bowl
mixing spoon

 

Step #1 – Add your cornstarch, essential oils, witch hazel and food coloring to medium sized mixing bowl. Stir. It will be very powdery and clumpy.

Step #2 – Add water, starting with 3 Tablespoons. Mix well… it will start as a dry, crumbly mixture. Add water a few drops at a time and mix well. Then a few more drops and mix some more. Repeat until you get JUST past the crumbly point and the color is mixed in. If the mixture gets too wet, add a little more cornstarch.

Step #3 – Spoon the paste into the ice cube tray or silicone mold. Gently tap / shake to work out the bubbles. Freeze for at least 1 hour.
