Home is Even Sweeter with Essential Oils!

I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for Spring! This morning I left our home early to be at church for worship team prep. Palm Sunday. The week before Easter. The dawn was quiet and lovely and hushed and fresh with hope. I think sometimes the earth knows exactly what the celebration is all about. Plants start pushing up through the quotes about spring joy motivation living well after cancer essential oils binghamton vestal johnson city owego endicottearth and some, like the daffodils pictured here, are just about ready to burst open.

“Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easter that maketh the leaf and the flower come out.” – Bertran De Born

The things that bring you and me joy? We need to focus more on those things. For me? This time of year is especially about focusing on the Joy-Giver, Jesus.

When I’m thinking about other things that bring me joy, essential oils are on the top of that list. I love helping people discover ways to pursue life and wellness with less chemicals. Being able to diffuse oils while I write this little blog post is joyful (I have Lemongrass diffusing – yummy). Yesterday I made my very first batch of body butter with cocoa butter, shea butter, beeswax and Frankincense and Lavender oils to share with a friend. Sharing the goodness of natural products gives me great joy, too.

What do YOU do this time of year to make your home sweeter?

8 Amazing Facts About Essential Oils

8 amazing facts essential oils healthy natural living

I’m always looking for natural ways to support my well-being. Surviving cancer has taught me many things, and one of the most important things is that we need to take care of our bodies. One way we can do that is using natural (100% pure) products. Essential oils makes sense for my lifestyle. The more I learn, the more I realize how important they are for my personal goals. I came to the conclusion that Young Living is a logical and important next-step for me and my family after finding help for symptoms from chemically-induced menopause in 2011 from going through chemo and radiation for colon cancer.

I believe there are other women who may have gone through a similar challenge and need to hear what I have to share.

So now I am incorporating essential oils in our home and loving these plant-based alternatives to chemicals. I want to share a few facts with you about essential oils and Young Living.

#1: Essential Oils Support Every System in the Body

In humans, essential oils provide support for every system in the body – from the endocrine system, to the circulatory system, to the muscular system. They support brain health, a healthy weight, are wonderful for supporting your emotional health, and are even great for sprucing up your libido! If you’ve gone through chemo and radiation, you understand the challenges these medical treatments can cause in the name of saving one’s life – let alone menopause! The uses for essential oils are endless.

#2: Essential Oils Are NOT New

Some of the oldest cultures on earth used essential oils. The Egyptians used essential oils for beauty and embalming and they were used in communal bath houses in Pakistan and Rome. There are 188 references to the use of essential oils in the Bible. Today, essential oils are considered by many to be the leading edge of natural products. Old things do come back in style!

#3: Essential Oils Can Be Used in Different Methods

Oils can be applied to skin (topically – this is the way the English typically prefer), diffused in the air (aromatically – this is the way Germans tend to enjoy), added to your bath, and Young Living’s Vitality line can be added to food and drink (the French tend to use essential oils more in cooking). When I was in a hospital bed after surgery to reconnect my colon a friend came to pray for me, visit, and massaged my feet with lavender essential oil. It was a lovely and refreshing blessing when I was feeling very low. Today? I love  Lemon Vitality oil or Lemongrass Vitality oil in my water bottle with a few drops of stevia. Water is so important to our bodies – and this is a great way to drink more water!

#4: Essential Oils Are POWERFUL!

Essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant. They are distilled from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, fruit, rinds, resins, and herbs. Oils consist of over 100 different natural, organic compounds.

#5: essential oils Are Absorbed Easily by the Skin

When they are applied to skin, they are absorbed easily and carried by the bloodstream to every cell in the body within minutes. They can increase oxygen uptake, enhance absorption of nutrients, enhance longevity, and help our bodies detox. Inhaling therapeutic grade oils can uplift our mood and increase our feeling of peacefulness and well-being.

Tests have shown that essential oils reach the thyroid, liver and heart in three seconds when inhaled. They were also found in the bloodstream in 26 seconds when applied topically. A normal and healthy body metabolizes essential oils in about 3-5 hours.

#6: Essential Oils Are Very Concentrated

60,000 rose blossoms provide only 1 ounce of rose oil, making it one of the most precious and expensive oils on the market. However, Lavender is abundant – 220 pounds will provide 7 pounds of oil. The amount of plant material required for distilling explains why some oils are more expensive than others. And yet, since we only use a small amount of essential oils at a time, even oils that are expensive are often considered to be very economical. They last a long time!

#7: Purity Is highly Important!

In the United States there is no true rating system for essential oils. The closest we get is an FDA requirement that in order to label a bottle of essential oils “pure” or “therapeutic grade,” the contents of that bottle must contain at least 5% of essential oils. When using essential oils as a natural alternative to support health and wellness, purity is absolutely critical. 95% of the world’s essential oils were created for industrial use. Many of the oils found on the market and in local stores are of low quality. You will want to know the source of your oils. That’s one reason I trust Young Living.

Young Living offers a Seed to Seal Guarantee – and this spoke volumes to me as a cancer survivor. Young Living grows their own plants, owns their own fields, works closely with partner farms who abide by the same policies, and controls the entire process from planting all the way through until bottling. If I am going to go the extra step of using essential oils in my home, I want to be using the very best. The Seed to Seal Promise means each plant is hand-weeded (oh my heart… all that weeding?!), there are no pesticides used, no chemicals, and no weed killers. The plants are harvested at their peak and vigorously tested. They go directly from the farm to my home! You can read more on Seed to Seal here.

#8: Essential Oils Offer Incredible Health Support

Using therapeutic grade essential oils and oil-enhanced products every day can help us lead happier and healthier lives. God did not create us to just survive – He created us to thrive and live life to the fullest! I feel that essential oils add an exciting natural resource in my personal wellness tool-kit.

How to Choose the Best Juicer for a Cancer Patient Budget

Well, obviously, a “FREE” juicer is best for any budget! What are the options for a cancer patient or health enthusiast considering the best juicer for their wallet?

veggie juice vegetable juice carrot juice beet juice apple juice greensBoth times I’ve been diagnosed with cancer I was kindly given the use of a juicer. Each time I used a different brand of juicer. One was a Champion juicer that a dear friend loaned to me, and one was a Jack LaLane juicer that belonged to my mom and dad. There are other options which tend to be more expensive and if you can afford those, go for it! The two juicers I’ve used tend to be affordable and did the job I needed at crucial times in my life.

Here is my experience with each juicer.

The Champion Juicer

champion juicer jack lalane juicer nutribullet juicing raw foods veggie juiceThe Champion is just that – a true champ at juicing. Champion juicers run between $250 and $295 and have a full 1/3 horsepower, heavy duty General Electric Motor. The juicer works great, easy to use, and has a number of attachments to help you make other items such as, “Frozen Sorbets, Sherbets, Baby Foods, Fruit Sauces and Nut Butters.”

The juicer can be a challenge to clean due to the removal of parts. The Champion juicer also needs to have olive oil placed on the mechanism after each use to ensure smooth operation. However, cleaning and oiling are well worth the effort to gain the benefit of fresh veggie and fruit juices!

The Jack LaLane Juicer

jack lalane juicer nutribullet champion juicing raw foods juices veggie juice vegetable juiceThe Jack LaLane juicer packs a powerful punch in a small and affordable juicing machine. The juicer is available in both plastic (PBA free) and stainless steel models and the price ranges from $69.95 to $120. I obtained the first Jack LaLane juicer in October of 2012 from my parents. It has lasted until the writing of this blog post (January 11, 2017) and has been replaced by the gift of a new Jack LaLane Fusion Juicer effective tonight. The older model still works just fine and I’m happy to be passing it on to a family member who would like to start juicing.

Like the Champion juicer, the Jack LaLane juicer requires cleaning, but I have found the Jack LaLane juicer much simpler to take apart, clean, and put back together. One tip my parents gave me was to place a small grocery bag in the area to collect pulp. When you’re read to clean out the juicer, simply pull out the entire bag. You’ve just saved yourself one step in the cleaning process!

What about the Nutribullet or Ninja blenders?

Last weekend I went shopping for a new juicer with my mom and sister. I was surprised to find that the only options in a major department store were a Nutribullet or Ninja blender in various styles. The salesperson was very helpful but was puzzled when I asked, “Do you have any juicers?” She pointed to the blender display and said, “Sure, right over there!” When I explained I meant a true juicer, not a blender, she asked, “Oh! Why, what’s the difference? We haven’t had the plain juicers in awhile because these are so popular.”

I shared that I could not drink five pounds of pulp each day (ie, Nutribullet or Ninja blenders), but I could drink five pounds of carrots juiced each day when I was on the cancer recovery plan. The juicer provides the liquid and no pulp. The blenders are ideal for one smoothie a day but the juicers are crucial for healing and wellness plans requiring juiced vegetables and fruit in higher quantities. We need those fresh enzymes in large quantities to help our immune system!

So what’s the best juicer for the cancer patient budget?

  1. Free! Ask friends and family if they have a juicer they are not using. Chances are, someone has one sitting in their kitchen or stored away and they would be happy to loan it to you.
  2. The Jack LaLane comes in at a lower price and still works like a horse. The Champion provides great extra options making it versatile. Choose which one meets your goals!

Have you used a juicer? Which one do you prefer, and why? I’d love to know! I’m getting thirsty. Time to go make some juice!
