Slough Off Summer with these Fall Body Scrubs
Sugar & Spice Body Scrub

Add above ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Store in a covered jar to use all over your body for extra exfoliation, concentrating on rough patches like knees and elbows. Rinse and towel dry.

Citrus Salt Body Scrub
This powerful mineral will help relax the muscles and skin, while increasing blood circulation. Contrary to what many people think, salt is not drying. Sea salt is great for healing skin tissue and replenishing hydration, effectively balancing moisture and releasing water retention.
Combine the sea salt and oil, mix well in a bowl until the salt is saturated with oil. Then add the drops of essential oil and mix. Store in a covered jar and use as needed all over your body. Rinse and towel dry.
Pumpkin & Spice
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon jojoba, almond or olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. This scrub needs to be used at the time of mixing, so don’t store to use later. This scrub is best applied to dry skin. I prefer the following order for application: 10-20 warm water bath soak, towel dry, scrub, and then shower to rinse off.

Natural Disinfectant Spray
Make it Yourself
From flu outbreaks to deadly bacterial infections, health scares seem to dominate the news these days. In response, you may go searching for products that claim to eradicate bacteria, viruses and other germs.
However, not all of these disinfectants are effective against every type of bacteria or bug. And although we may think these products are keeping you healthy, the truth is that some of them may actually be harmful to both your health and the environment.
There is a common misconception that antibacterial soap, in particular, is effective in eradicating all germs. Although antibacterial soap may kill some bacteria, it is no more effective in doing so than regular soap, and does nothing to fight viruses like colds or the flu.
In fact, many health experts advise against using antibacterial products, as most contain a potentially harmful ingredient called triclosan, which some researchers say is an endocrine disrupter. Moreover, overuse of these products has led to antibiotic resistance and the rise of so-called superbugs.
Make Your Own Disinfectant Spray
Your first line of defense
Disinfect Surfaces – especially doorknobs. Cleaning your doorknobs, refrigerator handles, faucets, and toilet handles with a disinfecting spray can help guard your family against viruses.
Why I chose these Essential Oils;
Rosemary is anti-microbial
Eucalyptus is a germicide
Vodka sterilizes
Orange prohibits bacteria growth
Lavender is anti-viral
1/2 cup Vodka
1/2 cup Water
15 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
25 drops Orange Essential Oil
15 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
15 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Mix all ingredients together and add to a spray bottle. Shake the spray bottle frequently while cleaning.

To Disinfect: Spray any surface that is frequently touched in your home.

If you don’t drink alcohol, you may not have vodka at home. Do not leave it out of this spray. It will help sterilize all your surfaces. Get a super cheap bottle from behind the liquor counter. You only need 1/2 cup.

These Essential Oil Blends were specifically put together for use in the home, to disinfect,and be anti-viral, and germacidal.
Clean Air to help during illness, flu season, and just purify the air around the house.
Clean Bath because Essential Oils are naturally antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial, they naturally energize, deodorize, clean and refresh.
Clean Dishes to help prevent the spread of disease.
Clean Glass
Clean Laundry I use it because it is a natural antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial, and I want my laundry deodorized, clean and refreshed.
Multi Clean  naturally antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial, they naturally energize, deodorize, clean and refresh.

Cold and Flu Season
The rise of resistant strains of bacteria, fungi and viruses has become a widespread problem because of overused antibiotics.  Time and time again, medical science keeps bumping into the truth that pure essential oils have benefits that drugs can’t duplicate.

Got a headache? Use peppermint essential oil. Simply apply a drop or two to your temples, forehead and the back of your neck. You may want to dilute the oil first in a carrier oil, like coconut or almond oil, because it can be very strong around your eyes.
Speaking of eyes, watch out for those. Ouch! If you do get essential oils in your eyes or other mucous membranes, dilute with a carrier oil, not water.
Sore Muscles? Peppermint is great for relaxing sore muscles and can help soothe inflammation. Use 3 drops of peppermint essential oil in 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and apply as needed.
Having a hard time breathing? Drop 4-6 drops of peppermint essential oil in a cup of very hot water, carefully inhale, your sinus' will thank you!

Make your own Vapor Rub

Put beeswax in a double boiler and heat until melted.  Add coconut oil and olive oil.  Mix until coconut oil is liquified. Remove from heat. Add essential oils and mix well. Now pour into jars right away.  Let vapor rub sit overnight to let the essential oils infuse.  Place a lid on rub and use as needed. Rub on chest, back and the bottoms of feet to relieve congestion and coughing.

Try massaging Grapefruit Essential Oil on your lymph nodes
when you notice you’re getting sick.
Grapefruit Essential Oil  is used with great success to combat muscle fatigue and stiffness while stimulating the lymphatic system and thereby clearing the body of toxins.

Add a few drops of grapefruit essential oil to the water in a cool air humidifier – not only can this boost your immune system, but it will also kill germs in the air.
Respiratory Rescue was specifically blended for;
  • Tuberculosis
  • pneumonia
  • upper respiratory problems
  • viral infections
  • asthma
Respiratory Sinus Relief is another good one for;
  • Allergies
  • Colds
  • Bronchitis
  • Flu
  • Cold sores
  • Sinusitis
  • Sore throat
  • Mucus

 . . . An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
In short, giving the body what it needs and keeping a constant supply of nutrients will help ensure that the body can resist any pathogen it encounters. Remember 1 teaspoon of sugar reduces your immune system by 1/2.
I always start with putting oregano in a carrier oil, on the bottom of my feet.
Boil 1-2 cups of water in a large pot. Remove from heat, add 5 drops each of thyme essential oil, rosemary essential oil, and oregano essential oil.  Put face directly over pot with towel covering your head to hold in the heat. Breathe in the steam as long as you can, aim for 15 minutes. This will help loosen congestion and kill viruses and bacteria in the lungs, bronchials or sinuses. Alternately, you can use 1/2 cup vinegar in the steam. It won’t smell great, but it will help fight the illness.
Sinus Pressure? Try this. . . 
Humming can relieve Sinus Pressure.  Did you read that right? Humming? Yep, humming purportedly helps ease sinus congestion. Although you’ll have to do it for at least one hour straight to make any difference.
Since humming produces an increase of airflow in your nasal passages, as well as the level of nitric oxide, the combination of the two helps reduce your risk of a sinus infection. Whenever you feel your allergies flaring up or a common cold coming on, start humming a pleasant tune to keep a sinus infection at bay.

Honey as Medicine
Did you know you can use honey as medicine?  If I had to choose only one medicine I could have in stock, I think it would be honey. These days, specialty wound-care centers might agree.

Honey has become a staple for those hard-to-heal wounds, such as diabetic leg ulcers, burns, even wounds with gangrene. It kills bacteria resistant to other antibiotics and actually heals tissue, nursing the skin back to health. Not only that, but it can decrease the pain.

How Honey Prevents Wound Infections

  • It seals the wound from outside contaminants.
  • It’s a mild acid. Most bacteria can’t grow well in that.
  • It has a low water content. Bacteria don’t like that either.

How Honey Kills Bacteria

  • It dries them up. The high sugar content dehydrates bacteria.
  • It produces hydrogen peroxide. When diluted with, say, body fluids, enzymes in the honey create a small amount of hydrogen peroxide. Enough to kill bacteria.
  • Its enzymes create antibacterial chemicals we’re just beginning to isolate. Some types of honey produce more of these chemicals than others. Some don’t produce much at all.

How Honey Heals

Honey has been shown to speed up the growth of various body tissues. It helps form new blood vessels, collagen, and the epithelial cells that cover the underlying tissue. The way it does this is:

  • It seals in the good tissue fluid containing enzymes and proteins that promote healing.
  • It provides nutrition to the tissue.
  • It decreases inflammation and swelling in a yet unknown way.

Some studies have suggested honey even decreases scarring.

Honey for a Hair Mask
I like to make a coconut and honey paste for the health of my hair. This is what I call my little miracle for my damaged hair.
1 Tablespoon of coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of honey
8 drops of rosemary essential oil
3 drops of peppermint essential oil
I mix it all up then smoosh it on my hair, the rosemary and peppermint stimulate the hair follicle while the coconut and honey nourish the hair shaft. I leave it on at least 1/2 an hour. Cover with plastic cap. Sometimes I may use a hair dryer for a little heat, or not. Then shampoo as usual. My hair has never felt better.
