everyday oils; the blends

third post about essential oils and how amazing they are!!!
if you need to catch up, you can read a basic intro HERE, and a post about a few of the more common single oils HERE.
last week-ish, i did a post about the 4 single oils that come in the "everyday oils" kit from young living. there are 5 blends in this kit as well, which i'll go thru in this post.

let me first share with you what i've been able to use essential oils on since i last posted:
sunburn (lavender)
knee pain and inflammation (frankincense and peppermint)
bug bites (lavender)
stinky shoes (purification)
scrapes (lavender)
headache (peppermint)
muscle pain in my lower back (valor, panaway, peppermint)
mouth ulcers (thieves)
help with sleep (peace and calming)
stomach ache (di-gize)

im sure there are other things that have come up that i cant think of right now.
some of the oils listed above are unfamiliar to you. i'll get more specific below.....

if you have any questions about specific oils in these blends, please let me know. also, there are some safety and application guidelines that i'm not listing just for the sake of time.
when people order from me, i go over how and where to apply the oils they are purchasing. i'll also say again, i only recommend the use of Young Living oils due to the quality and purity of the product. please do not go to a store and purchase the oils you see listed to use in the ways i have typed here. you may hurt yourself or someone you love.

i'll probably do a couple more posts over the next week or so (one on just lavender and one on just peppermint), but this is the bulk of what i wanted to get out there. i just got in the mail a few new oils, one of which im using on colby for his asthma in the hopes that he can stop his inhaler and nasal spray. i'll share as needed on that.

i also ordered a book i'm really excited to start (i may go do that now!) called Healing Oils of the Bible. i'll share some info from that, too, as i feel led.

if you're in this area, and interested in attending an oil class, please let me know. i'm hoping to have one in the next few weeks. it will basically be the info you've been reading here, but its different, i think, to actually hear it live, and have the oils in front of you to smell and use.

as always, let me know if you have any questions. i'm happy to help!!
