Doterra and Stye in the Eye

I am getting to the point where I don't think that I am going to have 1 week go by where I won't have some kind of ailment. So this time I have a Stye that is in my tear duct and causing a lot of pain. So what is a Stye exactly? Well a stye is when an infection occurs in the tear duct or pores along your eyelids.

Apparently I had something on my hands while rubbing my eyes due to allergies and as a result I now have this thing for the next week or so. However, if I am consistent in my application of oils I should be able to beat this thing much quicker. With this being so close to one's eyes you might think that your eye would end up going blind or something, good news that is not the case. It might be next to the eye but it wont infect the eye itself.

Stye, Infection in Eyelid
This is my Stye
So what oils does doterra have that would be of use in this matter. Well in Modern Essential there is no mention of Stye's and so I went to the next best source Everything Essential. The site says to use Lavender and Melaleuca around the eye. It also says that you can use Frankincense, which we all know is the go-to-oil. So of course I have been applying all three and let me say you really need to be careful cause if you get the oils in your eyes it will sting for few minutes. I learn this every time I apply them, unfortunately the location of the Stye is in an area that is too close to the eye so as a result it gets in my eye. If you do have this happen just apply the Fractionated Coconut Oil, that will make the sting less and will add its own healing abilities.

Doterra and Ingrown Hairs

So I was noticing one day that I needed to shave with a real blade as opposed to an electric shaver. Well little did I know that this was actually going to cause me more problems than I anticipated. I actually ended up getting an Ingrown hair.

Take a Moment and 
Visit Doterra to get more Information

Now what is an Ingrown hair, well basically this is something that affects people who have curly stiff hair. What happens is that when you cut your hair really short sometimes your hair grows in curly and in a sense actually grows back into the skin where it then gets infected. Most of the time these hairs can be removed and the infection will go away.

Now for me this did not happen, instead the infection got worse and I ended up with a puss filled sore on my chin. It was not a pretty picture, in fact I was so embarrassed I ended up wearing a band aid every day to hide the nastiness. It was also very sore and sensitive and the only relief came when I was finally able to squeeze out the largest area of infection. I will spare you the descriptive details on that.

Now hear is what I used from doterra. The Modern Essentials book didn't have anything in regards to an Ingrown hair but it did have a lot on infections. So I used whatever oils they listed that I had on hand. Every morning I would first get up and take a shower to soften the skin and open my pores as well as my usual routine. Then I got out and proceeded to empty the infection. Once I got out what could I would then apply topically Frankincense, Peppermint and On Guard in that order. I would then put a band aid on and go to work. The end of the day was pretty much the same steps minus the showering.

Now the infection is gone but this process did a workout on my face and I am left with a big hole/scar on my chin. This is another thing that I can apply oils to and a good one for scars is Frankincense but also you can look at a previous post of mine that talks about zits and scarring.

doTerra and Lou Gehrig's Disease, ALS

Wow, Lou Gehrig’s disease is only one that I have heard of but never knew what it was or how it affected people. I have done some research and I am saddened that there is to this date no current cure for the disease. There are only ways to lessen the pain and improve the quality of life for those who suffer from it. So what is Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) and what can doTerra do for those who suffer its debilitating effects.

Check out the special deals
that Doterra has this month.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is the scientific name and this disease is one that affects the muscle neurons in one’s brain and spinal column. Basically certain nerve cells in these two areas slowly die which in turn cause the ability for one to move ones arms and legs or even breathe very painful and difficult. Everyone’s case is different some progress quickly and have a limited amount of time to live, while others are able to live for decades. Good news is that this disease is rare and every year in the United States 1 out of every 100,000 people is infected. To those of you who have it or know someone who has it, My Prayers Go out to you all. What are the symptoms of Lou Gehrig’s disease? The first thing you will start to notice is weakness in one arm, leg, the face or the Tongue. Then after some time has passed you might start having weakness in either arms or both Legs.

  • Over Time, Lou Gehrig’s Disease also causes:
    • Muscle Twitching
    • Trouble use your hands and fingers to do tasks
    • Problems with speaking, swallowing, eating, walking, and Breathing
    • Problems with memory, thinking, and changes in personality.
Death often occurs as a result of Respiratory problems and problems with swallowing and getting enough food are the most common serious complication of ALS. As the muscles in the throat and chest weaken, swallowing, coughing, and breathing problems tend to get worse. Pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, lung failure, and heart failure are the most common causes of death. So what can doTerra do to help with the symptoms and possibly in the long run cure the disease. Well at the time there is no one who has used doterra that has been cured of ALS but that doesn’t mean that doterra isn’t a cure either. But there has been some remarkable relief reported from using the oils by those who do suffer from the disease. A lot of people have been using the following suggested protocols with success.

  • Oils and Blends: Balance, Frankincense, Myrrh, Peppermint, Sandalwood, White Fir
  • Essential Oils Based Products: Aroma Touch Technique, Life Long Vitality Supplements
  • Also Consider: Cypress, Deep Blue, Geranium, Helichrysum, Serenity, Thyme
Suggested Protocols:
  • Some suggested proper nutrition to strengthen the body.
    • Life Long Vitality Supplements
    • Wholesome Foods and Eliminating harmful foods and habits such as alcohol, tobacco, carbonated drinks, high sugar content, etc..
  • To Strengthen the Immune System:
    • Aroma Touch Technique as often as possible
  • Rebuilding and strengthening at the cellular level:
    • Frankincense and Helichrysum are both known for their rejuvenating properties that they have for nerve tissue.
      • Frankincense applied to the base of the neck, rubbing it up to the base of the skull twice weekly
      • 2 Drops Frankincense under the tongue, hold for 8-10 mins, swallow, twice daily.
      • During the Aroma touch technique apply both to the inflammation phase
  • For Symptomatic Relief:
    • For Pain and Stimulation use: Deep Blue, Peppermint, White Fir
    • To Relax use: Balance and Serenity
Like I said earlier these are not cures but protocols to make one’s life more livable. With that being said remember that there are miracles every day and that there is that one chance that these oils could do the most remarkable things and actually be a cure. Here is hoping and if you need sample feel free to contact me and I will send you some, just pay for the shipping costs.

doTerra Weight Loss

Ok my personal experience with weight loss is well.. not really something I deal with regularly. In fact I grew up most of my life weighing in at around 150lbs. It has only been since my first year of marriage that I have actually gained a lot of weight. I now weigh in at an average of 190 – 205lbs. Now this is a lot to me but maybe not to some of my readers.

If interested in learning
more or Shopping for products CLICK HERE

Why did I have this sudden increase, was it the food my wife was and is cooking or some other factor. Well for me its many things, I am less active(less dancing, less sports activity), I drink way more soda than I should(dr. Pepper), I am pretty sure that my metabolism has also slowed. I am some others I can’t think of but I am sure they are there. Needless to say I have decided recently that since doTerra has an oil blend that is specifically designed for weight loss that maybe I need to get back into shape.

Now remember that essential oils are designed to work with our bodies natural abilities. With this in mind you still need to eat healthy food and healthy portions exercise and yes have a good attitude about anything going on in your life for the blend to be of any use.

Part of what makes losing weight so different for each person is that most people have either a fast or slow metabolism or they eat to the point of being full. Metabolism is very important and it needs to be moving shortly after you wake up each day, this is why you often hear peoples say that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast actually jump starts your metabolism and so do drinking a glass of water before you eat it. Oils that are great for increasing ones energy are as follows:

  • Grapefruit
  • Wild Orange
  • Peppermint (don’t use if pregnant, or Nursing)
  • Rosemary (Use with caution if pregnant, or Nursing)
  • And a Citrus Blend

Special Note:
I have heard that Grapefruit is not good when you
are on high blood pressure Medication.
Is this blend okay to take?

Grapefruit as a food is very different chemically
from Grapefruit Oil. The oil comes from the peel,
not the pulp or the meat. The peel is cold pressed
and when we look at the makeup of these,
they are different. The doctor that doTerra
has on staff has no concerns, but
if you do, please visit with your doctor.
Many people like to add the oils to their
glasses of water they drink throughout the day.
The Slim & Sassy reminds people to make healthier choices.
For most it does help to curb their appetites and they welcome
the boost it give their metabolisms.

These can be diffused or combined with massage. For “on the go” metabolism boosts, carry a tissue cup or some means of inhaling the oils. The aroma alone will help provide energy during workouts and during time where you might feel sluggish.

Slim and Sassy is doTerra’s blend that is going to help with weight loss. I have decided that I am going to start using the blend while eating healthy, exercising and trying to be a happier person. I plan to take a before and after picture. I will also have a weekly report posted on here to keep followers up to date with my weight loss. I have already been exercising for the last few weeks and recording my accomplishments at a wonderful site called Tribe Sports.

For weight loss use the following:
  • Basic:
    • Slim & Sassy (Cinnamon, Ginger, Grapefruit, Lemon Peppermint)
  • Appetite Suppressant:
    • Dill, Grapefruit, Patchouli, Slim & Sassy
  • Attitude:
    • Balance, Cypress, Elevation, Oregano, Peppermint, Lavender and Ylang Ylang
  • Metabolism:
    • Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Peppermint and Rosemary
  • Fat Burn:
    • Basil, Lavender, Cypress and Grapefruit
  • Diuretic:
    • Cypress, Fennel, Lavender, Lemon, Oregano and Rosemary
As you can see there are a lot of oils that can be used in losing weight. Even just rubbing Slim & Sassy on your stomach everyday will have an impact on your weight loss. doTerra not only has this blend but they also have Slim & Sassy Trim Shakes, chocolate and vanilla flavored for those of you that would prefer that over the oil. Some people don’t really like the taste of the Slim & Sassy oil. But I hear that there are some major changes coming down the pipeline and some of those changes are going to happen to Slim & Sassy. I will keep you informed, also watch my blog for updates on my weight loss.

CAUTIONS: Slim & Sassy is safe to use aromatically, topically, or internally when used as directed. Because it contains citrus essential oils that may increase photosensitivity in the skin, it is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after topical application. Do not use directly in eyes, ears, or nose. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under doctors care, consult your physician.
