Everyday Essentials – Grapefruit EO

April 4, 2014 in Essential Oils, Everyday Essentials by Kelly

Welcome to Everyday Essentials, a new weekly part of my blog where I’m hoping to spread a little education about using essential oils and how they can be incorporated into your everyday life. Essential oils have been a daily part of my life since October 2012 and have truly changed the way I view and deal with illness, allergies, asthma, hormone imbalances, headaches, sleeplessness, anxiety, fatigue and many other road blocks that keep my family and I from living living fully.

Grapefruit EO

Grapefruit EO is the oil of honoring the body. It teaches true respect and appreciation for one’s physical body. It supports those who struggle with or are caught in patterns of mistreatment of their physical body, like severe dieting,and judging one’s weight or body type. At the root of these issues is the belief that one never looks good enough. Grapefruit EO helps curb emotional eating because it encourages a positive relationship with your physical body based on love, tolerance and acceptance and reminds us that no amount of food can fill a hole in the heart… only love can do that. Grapefruit’s uplifting and stimulating fragrance is helpful with depression, eating disorders, fatigue, jet lag, headaches, PMS, and stress. Balancing and uplifting to the mind, it may also help in relieving anxiety. I love adding a few drops in my water, and I typically rotate between Lemon EO, Wild Orange EO and Grapefruit EO in my water each day.

Everyday Essentials – Lime EO

March 28, 2014 in Daily Drivel, Essential Oils, Everyday Essentials by Kelly

Welcome to Everyday Essentials, a new weekly part of my blog where I’m hoping to spread a little education about using essential oils and how they can be incorporated into your everyday life. Essential oils have been a daily part of my life since October 2012 and have truly changed the way I view and deal with illness, allergies, asthma, hormone imbalances, headaches, sleeplessness, anxiety, fatigue and many other road blocks that keep my family and I from living living fully.

Lime Essential Oil

Lime EO is an oil for the heart, giving our soul a zest for life. It helps cleanse issues of the heart and encourages us to look at our inner motives. It instills courage and cheer and reminds us to be grateful for the gift of life. It encourages balance between the heart and the mind and helps to clear discouragement and depression. Lime is anti-rheumatic, anitbacterial, antibiotic, antiviral, anti-mucus, reduces fever, and is a disinfectant. Lime is great for the skin, specifically acne and plays an important role in weight loss. It is extraordinary for the respiratory system. It aids the lymphatic system and is known to help with the recovery of insect bites. It also reduces muscle spasms and cramps.During studies, Lime EO has shown to help in the absorption of iron; however, more study is needed before a firm conclusion is drawn. One of my favorite ways to use lime is to add a drop or two to salsa or to make a veggie dip (recipe here).
