Organic Salves

image

There has been a lot of excitement about Spark Naturals new salves. This week we are featuring our base salve. If you love using salves in your natural healing protocols but don’t have time to make salves, we’ve done it for you. Our base salve is made of organic virgin coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic extra virgin olive oil and vitamin e. It’s the perfect foundation for mixing with any essential oils or blends.

To add your eo’s you will need to melt down the salve so it’s liquid. It’s important to not get any water into the salve so use either of these methods.
1. Place the salve into a warm oven until melted (use a low temp).
2.Place the salve inside a glass measuring cup and when place the measuring cup into a pot or skillet and slowly melt on the stove.

When your salve is liquid add 30-40 drops of essential oil or blend and stir well. Do not place the lid back on your salve until it has cooled completely.

Our Base Foundation Salve is our featured Item Of The Week and the price is discounted 10%. You may also use Coupon Code~ jeanne and SAVE an additional 10%

Essential Highlights: The Citrus Kit

Essential Highlights-Citrus
Citrus oils are energizing, uplifting and invigorating. They can be a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. They can help with depression and winter time blues. I strongly encourage you to diffuse these “sunny” essential oils if you are experiencing cabin fever.
WILD ORANGE is a cheerful oil and very useful for mood elevation and generally well received by children. It can help relieve stress and is often used quite successfully to help children sleep. It can also help with constipation (apply to the navel). Wild Orange is also delicious added to smoothies, chocolate and pancake batter.
LEMON is a very fresh oil. It’s a great oil to diffuse in your kitchen because it’s great for eliminating odors. Do you want to get rid of cigarette smoke odor? Try lemon oil. Its anti-bacterial properties make it perfect for cleaning surfaces. Simply add lemon oil to a water filled glass bottle. It’s great for removing gum from your child’s hair or used as a natural gunk remover. One of my favorite uses is a quick swipe down the side of my nose to stop it from running.
GRAPEFRUIT is a bright oil that can help awaken your senses. It’s a great oil to add to your washcloth and leave on the shower floor,allow the heat of the shower to create an aromatic start for your day. I really think you’ll love the energy. Because of it’s high vitamin C content it’s great for immune support which is another reason to diffuse it when everyone is stuck indoors during the winter. It is also quite helpful with mental exhaustion.
LIME has an intoxicating citrus scent, I just love it. It is very uplifting when diffused and an oil you definitely will use in the kitchen. Use it in all of your lime inspired recipes and add it to your club soda. It’s also beneficial to help with colds,coughs,asthma and can boost the immune system. If you don’t have a diffuser add a drop into the palms of your hands with a carrier oil and inhale.
The CITRUS KIT is on sale during the month of February and when using COUPON CODE: jeanne you will double your savings to get 20% off
If you have any questions about the kit or citrus oils, please ask!

Ginger

Ginger (large)(blog)
Ginger oil is warm and soothing and I think best know for it’s ability to squash morning sickness, nausea, and motion sickness. To use it as a digestive aid you can take it internally, apply it topically or diffuse it. Because of it’s antiseptic and carminative properties (a preperation intended to either prevent formation of gas or expel it) it’s wonderful for treating food poisoning and intestinal infections. I highly recommend diffusing ginger when dealing with chronic or severe nausea.
Ginger is one of my favorite oils and i use it daily for it’s anti-inflammatory properties.  I was having inflammatory pain in one of my knees and was using one drop each of lemongrass and ginger oil topically on my knee. I was definitely feeling improvement in my pain but I was looking for no pain. I knew that I needed to fight the inflammation from the inside out. It was then that I began to add one drop each of lemongrass and ginger in a quart of water daily, and in 3 days I was nearly pain free. I would make 2 suggestions if you are interested in this protocol. If you have pain that is moderate to severe you may need more ginger and lemongrass. Also, if you don’t want to drink the essential oils in your water, add them to a gel cap.  If you don’t want to use oils internally then by all means use it topically with a carrier oil. I really think you will love the warmth that you will have with these oils. If you’d like to add some additional pain relief, use peppermint oil also.
If you are looking for a warm, spicy and energizing diffuser blend try blending ginger and grapefruit oil. You can also blend them to make a body spray!
Grapefruit Ginger Body Spray
1 cup water
2 T alcohol free witch hazel
5 drops Grapefruit Oil
2 drops Ginger Oil
1 drop Vetiver Oil
Mix together and put in a glass spray bottle. Shake well to combine and before using.

THE ESSENTIALS FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY

OOTM 2015-February
Cedarwood is a soothing and grounding oil, which may help you to relax and overcome stress. It is a mood elevator and can help with focus and mental clarity. It has a sedative property and may help with insomnia. Inhaling Cedarwood can induce the release of seratonin which is converted into melatonin in the brain. Diffusing Cedarwood or applying it to the bottoms of your feet may help with your rest. Try adding it to the diffuser with either Lavender or Frankincense oil.
Cedarwood is wonderful for oily skin and can help relieve itchy skin and inflammations. Make your own facial toner with about 10 drops of Cedarwood added to 1 ounce of alcohol free witch hazel.
Cedarwood is also beneficial for hair loss and can be used to treat alopecia areata. You can see the research here http://sparknaturals.blogspot.com/2015/01/research-alopecia-areata.html
If you are experiencing thinning hair try adding some Cedarwood to your shampoo bottle.
Cedarwood is a must have during cold and flu season! It’s an expectorant and can eliminate coughs and removes phlegm from the respiratory tracts and lungs. By stimulating the loosening of phlegm, you also protect your respiratory tract and overall health from toxins and conditions that excess phlegm can cause.  Blend it in a roller bottle with your favorite carrier oil and apply it to your chest and throat. It also gives relief from headaches and  red and watery eyes.
Here are a few diffuser blends using Cedarwood, enjoy!
