Nature has given us everything we need to survive although most of us have forgotten this. I've gone back to the basics because five years ago I looked like a walking medical case. Western Medicine has never worked very well for me. My internal and external organs are extremely sensitive to chemicals, additives and yes, even medications. I had hives all up and down my body constantly -- I went to doctors, specialists, everyone and they could not help me. It wasn't until I started hearing about essential oils and how chemicals affected some people that I knew this was a message meant for me. That same week I threw away and gave away all personal care products with chemicals in them - shampoos, perfumes, makeup, toiletries, lotions, etc and went out and bought organic and natural products. Within a week my skin had completely cleared up! I was amazed and I haven't had any issues since then except for medication allergies -- which I am now also switching out for Essential Oils and more natural solutions.
There is an essential oil for every medical condition out there! Some like the convenience of western medicine or knowing that they went to someone to get treated. Others of us like to treat ourselves and know we are doing so in healthy and organic ways. In fact, 90% of Doctors have admitted that they would NOT take most of the medications themselves or even give them to their family. They would seek alternative methods. But if everyone used Essential Oils, there would be very little need for Doctors :) However, this does not mean you should go and throw away everything in your medicine cabinet. It needs to be gradual and you need to figure out what works best for you if you intend to take this step.
I have had several people ask in the last week what they can do naturally for dry and itchy skin and also for a dry and itchy scalp. These are common winter issues. When the climate changes from warm and humid to dry and cold our physical bodies experience these symptoms. My remedy for this is quick and easy and also feels like a special treat -- there is nothing better in my life than a nice hot bath! So why not feel like you are in a spa while taking care of these uncomfortable symptoms?
Draw a hot bath and after it has run use a melon baller to spread coconut oil into the water. I like to use the larger end of the melon baller and I fill it twice running it all over the bath water. I then rinse the tool off by mixing the oil in the water for a minute.
Next add 10 drops each of DoTerra's Melaleuca Essential Oil and Eucalyptus Essential Oil. Swish the water one more time to mix everything up and its time to get in!
Try to stay in for at least ten or 15 minutes -- the longer the better because your skin is absorbing the oils. Lay your head down in the tub and let it rest with your hair underwater for at least a minute or two.
When your hair dries it is going to feel oily but this is good because all of those oils are seeping into your pores and healing your skin. Allow your hair to dry with the oils in them at least overnight. When you get up the next morning, take a shower and wash your hair as you normally would. You will notice that your skin feels incredible and your head no longer itches. If the symptoms come back, repeat. You can't overdose yourself on essential oils. You can use them as often as you like!
Also, in case you didn't know a coconut oil bath is a natural way to shave arms and legs ladies! I have not bought shaving cream in over two years and the coconut oil bath works better than any shaving cream or gel I ever tried!
By the way, if you are interested in DoTerra's products, would like more information or to place an order you are welcome to visit my website or to contact me personally to place a wholesale order! DoTerra's Essential Oils are #1 Internationally because they are purely organic. Many of their oils can even be ingested which is virtually unheard of with other companies! I believe in their products and use them every day and I would recommend them to everyone!
