Why We Love Essential Oils Part 1: Charlie’s Potion

Friday, May 5, 2017

I know, I know. You’re rolling your eyes and thinking, “OMG! Anooooother one of those potion pushing oil reps!” But seriously. Stop! If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 73 times this week alone–I have ZERO desire to get rich selling oils. (I mean, I would love to get rich blogging, but that’s a post for a different day). My best friend is passionate about her Young Living oil business and I love seeing that fire in her! Me, though? I’m just passionate about using oils as a natural source of healing for myself and my family…if I sell something along the way, cool. 🙂  I had a whole different blog post slated for today, but when our usual morning routine was disrupted by snot and barking I decided now is the time to start sharing some of our favorite uses of Young Living essential oils. *PLEASE note that nothing posted here should take place of the advice of your medical professional! I’m a third grade teacher–not a doctor!’

Let’s start with today’s ordeal. My boy was barking, frogging, dripping and feeling a little spinny! ‘Tis the season I suppose–blooms and rain and farming, oh my! My Charlie is 7 and is in LOOOOOVE with lemon essential oil!  I mean, who doesn’t love that sweet, citrusy smell?! Little does he know that it actually has a lot of  “crud” killing properties as well! He’s home from school today and asked me to run him a bath and diffuse his lemon oil. Who am I to argue?! We got that boy some bubbles, the diffuser, 3 drops of his lemon oil and mama also added a few drops of her secret weapon for these snorky days: RC. RC is an amazing blend all on its own! Full of multiple forms of eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, pine, marjoram, cypress, myrtle; it’s packed with great ingredients that smell fantastic too! We will keep this up throughout the day and I have no doubts that little mister will be back to his ornery self in no time!

Charlie’s Snork Potion (Diffuser Blend)

5 drops RC Oil

3 drops Lemon Oil

*Charlie says this is best if diffused in your small steamy bathroom while soaking in a bubbly tub. I’m confident it will work elsewhere just as well! 😉

I’m sure we aren’t the only family dealing with seasonal “snork” right now! If you want to try out this little “potion” or are interested in purchasing a starter kit through Young Living, I’ll be your girl! No pressure, though. 🙂 (Order a kit in May and receive a bonus–a bottle of tangerine essential oil!)
