Melbourne Weekly SOUTH EAST review

In this weeks Weekly Review a little article about Reiki appears.  A couple of months ago I gave reporter Jane Hone a Reiki treatment and I'd kind of forgotten about it until I got a call to say the review was going to appear in this weeks issue.


I like Jane's humour and hopefully it will bring some Women to the clinic that may not have thought about having a Reiki treatment before.  I'm so happy that they mentioned I see children as well -- it's a growing thing -- I am seeing more and more children and I love seeing how well they respond -- total heart love.

3 Oil Thursday


Oregano

Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional health practices for its cleansing and immune-boosting properties.* The primary chemical components of Oregano are carvacol and thymol, both in the phenols group, which possess cleansing and antioxidant properties.* Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin. One drop taken daily can help maintain healthy immune function; Oregano can be taken more frequently when seasonal threats are high or as needed to further boost immunity.* In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano supports healthy digestion.* Oregano also acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends and can help support healthy respiratory function when taken internally.*

Uses
Take one drop daily to maintain healthy immune function.*
Add one to two drops to a veggie capsule to support healthy respiratory function.*
Put one drop in place of dried oregano in spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or on a roast.
Put 10 drops in a 16-ounce spray bottle with water for a surface cleaner.

Statements with asterisks refer to internal use.  All others refer to aromatic or topical use. 


Peppermint

The peppermint plant is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint and was first described by Carl Linneaus in 1753. A high menthol content—like that found in the doTERRA Peppermint essential oil—distinguishes the best quality Peppermint from other products. Frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene, Peppermint also helps to alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function.* Peppermint continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils.

Uses
Use a drop of Peppermint with Lemon in water for a healthy, refreshing mouth rinse.
Take one to two drops in a Veggie Capsule to alleviate occasional stomach upset.*
Add two to three drops to your favorite smoothie recipe for a refreshing twist.
Place one drop in palm of hand with one drop Wild Orange and one drop Frankincense and inhale for a mid-day pick-me-up.

Statements with asterisks refer to internal use.  All others refer to aromatic or topical use.


Fennel

Fennel can grow up to six feet in height and has delicate, feathery leaves. The history of Fennel use dates back to ancient times when Roman warriors were said to have consumed Fennel to make them strong and ready for battle. Fennel is best known for its distinct licorice aroma and taste, yet its ability to promote healthy digestion is equally noteworthy.* Fennel may help support the health of the lungs and respiratory tract and can be added to water or tea to help fight sweet tooth cravings.* Fennel is also known for its ability to promote healthy metabolism, liver function, and circulation.*

Uses
Take internally to support healthy respiratory function.*
Put a drop of Fennel in water or tea to help fight sweet tooth cravings.*
Add to desserts for an additional depth of flavour.

You can purchase all of these through my online store or email to find out how you can get them at a wholesale price.

The first 3 are:


Description

Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus plants, requiring special climate and soil in order to thrive. Italians have used Bergamot for years to reduce feelings of stress and to soothe and rejuvenate skin. In Greece, the unripe fruits are used as sweetmeats, eaten by the spoonful as a dessert or with coffee. Bergamot is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to help with anxious and sad feelings. It is also purifying and cleansing for the skin while having a calming effect.

Uses

Diffuse in the classroom, at work, or at home when stress levels or tension is high.
Apply to the skin while showering and inhale deeply to experience its calming aroma while enjoying its purifying skin benefits.
Change regular tea to Earl Grey with the addition of Bergamot.

Description

A member of the Pelargonium genus of flower species, geraniums are grown for their beauty and as a staple of the perfume industry. While there are over 200 different varieties of Pelargonium flowers, only a few are used as essential oils. Uses of Geranium essential oil date back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used Geranium oil to beautify skin and for other benefits. In the Victorian era, fresh geranium leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired; in fact, the edible leaves and flowers of the plant are often used in desserts, cakes, jellies, and teas. As an essential oil, Geranium has been used to promote the appearance of clear skin and healthy hair—making it ideal for skin and hair care products. It also helps calm nerves and lessen feelings of stress. Geranium is also known to naturally repel insects.

Uses

Use in an aromatherapy steam facial to beautify skin.
Add a drop to your moisturizer for a smoothing effect.
Geranium is great for both dry and oily hair. Apply a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner bottle, or make your own deep hair conditioner.
Diffuse aromatically for a calming effect.


Description

Vetiver, a member of the grass family, is grown for many reasons. Unlike other grasses, the root system of Vetiver grows down, making it ideal for helping to prevent erosion and providing soil stabilization. Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. Due to Vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, it is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. It can also be rubbed on the feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. When taken internally, Vetiver can support a heathy immune system.*

Uses

Add 1–2 drops to tea or hot drinks during winter time to promote immune-supporting properties*.
Use as a massage oil to calm emotions.
Take a warm bath with a few drops of Vetiver essential oil for deep relaxation.
Diffuse with Lavender, dōTERRA Serenity®, or dōTERRA Balance® to calm emotions and lessen stress.
Use a toothpick to help get the desired amount out of container if Vetiver is too thick to get out of the bottle. A little goes a long way.
