When you get a bug

Oil Drop Bottle_full

There is something so fascinating about learning about new bug strains that show up on the radar.  A Facebook friend stated:  “just one more thing to have to worry about.”   For me, I don’t worry; instead, I feel empowered and ready to combat whatever new bugs comes our way.  I don’t need to wait for a vaccination or need to worry about going into public places for fear of catching something….all I have to say is keep your Protective Blend handy.  The contents of the Protective Blend are powerful, effective and safe.  The combined essential oils in this formula helps to support healthy immune function.  I’m grateful to have these compounds in my arsenal and I realize the cost savings for only pennies per drop.




A Gift Fit for a King


The Bible documents the use of Frankincense as early as 3000 B.C.  Considered a “holy” oil in the Middle East, frankincense has been part of religious ceremonies for thousands of years.  It’s reported that wisemen brought the precious gift as they sought the newborn Christ child on that first Christmas.

Considered to be more valuable than gold, frankincense was sometimes referred to as “liquid gold”. Even today, the rarety of frankincense makes it one of the most expensive essential oils.

Much of the world’s frankincense comes from the gum resin tears extracted from trees in Oman, India, Somalia, Yemen and other areas of North Africa, which is then steam distilled into oil.  However, the best oil comes from Oman.

Like all essential oils, frankincense brings a complexity and synergy, through its many beneficial compounds and structures.  Researchers have discovered that compounds, identified as sesquiterpenes, stimulate the limbic system, the emotional center of the brain,   as well as key glands.

No wonder the rich aromatic scent of this unique essential oil is calming to the senses, emotional state and overall sense of well-being.

As you consider gift giving this season and if you’re wanting to give the priceless gift of health and vitality, consider giving this valuable gift to loved ones this holiday season – after all, it’s a gift fit for a king.

Juniper Berry Essential Oil Revisited

It is always exciting to learn about new essential oils.  I’m particularly excited about the new Juniper Berry oil.  I have experienced it and found many natural health benefits that I’m anxious to share.  Derived from the coniferous tree, Juniper Berry essential oil has a rich history of traditional uses and therapeutic benefits. Juniper Berry acts as a natural cleansing agent, both internally and externally.  Juniper Berry supports healthy kidney and urinary function and is very beneficial to the skin. Its woody, spicy, yet fresh aroma has a calming effect that helps relieve tension and stress. When diffused, Juniper Berry helps to cleanse and purify the air.



Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.

Internal use:

Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
