Benefits of Clary Sage

clary sageAn especially inviting, softly floral and sweet oil! Clary Sage can have a deeply soothing effect on nervous tension in both men and women.

Well known for having a natural affinity with the female reproductive organs,  Clary Sage is strongly Yang and thus helpful for balancing excessive Yin states.

Clary Sage is known to be especially helpful for relieving premenstrual tension in women.

It has a balancing effect on hormones!

Clary Sage has a reputation for easing painful contractions during labor and birth.

Traditionally Clary Sage has been added to Geranium essential oil to help regulate and relieve female complaints associated with hormonal imbalance, such as irregular menses, menopausal symptoms, headache, nausea and depression.

Stimulates lucid dreaming and clear insight through your intuition!

A stimulating, regenerative and revitalizing oil excellent for treating nervousness, weakness, fear and depression.

Promotes long lasting tranquility, warmth and aliveness.

Clary Sage nourishes your soul, dispels negative thoughts and emotions and helps you get through challenging and difficult circumstances.

Clary Sage promotes healthy circulation and is helpful in balancing circulatory conditions like high blood pressure and varicose veins.

Clary Sage is especially helpful for relieving stressful or tense physical and emotional states.

Use in a hot compress to relieve menstrual and intestinal cramps, as well as stomach, liver and gall bladder conditions.

May be useful for relieving migraine headache.

According to Ayurvedic Medicine, an ancient system of healing practiced in India, sweet aromas such as Clary Sage are used to regulate and pacify both Vata and Pitta imbalances. Symptoms of Vata imbalance are premenstrual syndrome, insomnia, nervousness and anxiety or worry. Symptoms of Pitta imbalance include feelings of frustration and anger, tendency to emotional upset and over reaction, high blood pressure and an inability to relax and go with the flow.

CAUTION: As Clary Sage can make some people feel exceedingly woozy and faint please avoid using it with alcohol, or when driving or needing to focus. Because of its hormonal effects avoid Clary Sage during pregnancy, or when nursing unless under the direct supervision of a qualified professional aromatherapist. Due to its estrogen-like effect it may cause complications with conditions sensitive to estrogen.

PLEASE NOTE: There are many cheap, synthetic copies of aromatic oils, but these are not recommended for therapeutic use. For best results purchase the highest quality oils you can possibly find. Use certified organic essential oils, or oils that have been tested and are pesticide free, such as DoTERRA you can find Clary Sage at my online DoTERRA store http://www.mydoterra.com/meganrreaux

DIY Bug Spray

doterra-insect-repellent

 

Summer is here, and along with that comes those pesky mosquitos! I live in Southern Louisiana, so I know all too well about them! The problem with popular insect repellents is that they are full of harmful chemicals. Below is some info on this popular chemical additive that is in most insect repellent products.

DEET (also known as N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide ) is an additive in many insect repellent products used to repel biting pests. Sounds great right? Prevents bites, so what’s the problem?

 

Well it’s not all that pretty. DEET has also proven to be harmful when consumed, inhaled, or used in excess. You better believe those toxins and pesticides in bug sprays are absorbed and eventually enter the bloodstream potentially creating awful side effects. Have you even read the warning labels on a can of bug spray? The EPA clearly states: “Do not apply to eyes and mouth, and apply sparingly around ears. When using sprays do not spray directly onto face; spray on hands first and then apply to face. After returning indoors, wash your child’s treated skin and clothes with soap and water or bathe.” And the Centers forDisease Control: “Do not allow young children to apply insect repellent to themselves; have an adult do it for them. Keep repellents out of reach of children.”  SCARY!

Here is an easy DIY recipe for all natural bug repellent, that works!!

What you will need : DoTERRA’s Terra Shield Essential Oil

Distilled Water

A Spray Bottle

Directions :  Add 15-30 drops (depending on the size spray bottle you use) to a spray bottle, and fill the rest up with Distilled water and spray away!!

You can find Terra Shield on my online DoTERRA store here                                             http://www.mydoterra.com/meganrreaux

 

DIY Lavender Bath Salts

Homemade-Lavender-Bath-Salts-Recipe  

I made these as favors for my baby shower! They were a hit, plus very easy to make.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED :

DoTERRA Lavender Oil ( you can find this at my online DoTERRA store here, http://www.mydoterra.com/meganrreaux )

Epsom Salt I used the big container of the Walgreens brand

A mason jar or any other container you would like to store them in

 

DIRECTIONS : mix one cup of Epsom Salt with 10-15 drops of Lavender ( it will give you about 2 uses) VOILA! That’s it! Of course, I used the whole container of Epsom Salts and about 20-25 drops of Lavender because I was making enough for about 20 people.

Now, go run a hot bath and enjoy!

Diaper Bag Makeover

diaperbagmakeover-300x202

doTERRA recently released a “Diaper Bag Makeover” in their latest edition of doTERRA Living Magazine. I LOVE IT! My 10 month old has been cutting teeth, and you know what comes with teething? DIRTY DIAPERS. I made the diaper cream that is listed below. It takes minutes to make, and after applying it to her before bedtime, she woke up rash free!

Homemade Diaper Cream:

1/2 ounce bees wax – you can find beeswax here ( http://www.walmart.com/ip/Murray-s-100-Pure-Australian-Beeswax-4-oz/10451913 )
3 1/2 ounces doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
2 drops each: doTERRA’s Melaleuca Essential Oil and Lavender Essential Oil
(1) 4 ounce glass jar – (Tip: Use a Baby Food Jar!)
Spoon or stick for stirring

Put the beeswax into the glass jar and place in the top portion of a double boiler. Gently melt it over simmering water, stirring until smooth.

Slowly add the Fractionated Coconut Oil

Remove from heat and add essential oil. Stir, then let cool. Label your cream and done!

Tip: If it’s too firm, reheat and add more coconut or olive oil.
