Lavender The Healer

Bee enjoying fresh Lavender flowers

Lavender is one of my favorite oils, it will heal a burn in no time. Protect your pets from fleas, relieve a migraine and help you sleep. Promotes tissue regeneration and speed wound healing for burns. Antiseptic, antifungal, relaxant and anti-inflammatory. Great for respiratory infections, high-blood pressure, PMS, skin conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis, scarring, and stretch marks), burns, hair loss, insomnia, nervous tension.

Calming and relaxing, both physically and emotionally. Documented to improve concentration and mental activity.

Apply directly to skin without dilution, inhale directly, diffuse, or take as a dietary supplement. Put on your pets to repel fleas and to calm their spirt.

I want to add an update to this post, the picture below is my finger just a few hours after I burned it on my curling iron. I was getting ready for work and was curling my hair and I dropped my very hot curling iron. When I reached for it I burnt the entire length of my finger, it blistered and was red and inflamed. It ached so bad and was so puffed up I couldn’t bend it.  Immediately I put lavender on it, the sting went away, and within a few hours this is how it looked!!!

Thieves Essential Oil


Thieves has the most interesting story. Here is your history lesson: It was created based on research about a legend of 15th Century thieves who rubbed oil on themselves to avoid getting the plague while they robbed the dead and dying. When apprehended the thieves were offered a reduced sentence if they disclosed the formula of the oils, herbs and spices they used to protect themselves.

The ingredients:

Clove: antimicrobial, antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral, and anti-infectious

Lemon: amplify immunity and promotes circulation

Cinnamon Bark: powerful antiseptic, strongly antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory

Eucalyptus Radiata: anti-infectious, antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory

Rosemary: antiseptic, antimicrobial

You will find many young living products in the thieves line. Mouthwash, hand sanitizer, laundry soap, household cleaner , disinfectant wipes, toothpaste, throat lozenges, mints, dish soap, veggie wash, and dental floss.

For headaches, put one drop on tongue and push against the roof of your mouth.
