Seasonal Discomfort

Seasonal Discomfort

It's that time of year again!  And boy am I glad these oils with me!  I am on vacation in Ft. Myers, Florida.  I live in Lansing, Illinois. There, here - it's Spring everywhere, and trees grass and flowers are doing what they are created to do.  I love all of the new growth and flowers, but sometimes, my eyes and sinuses do not!   This was one of those days that I had to pull my contact lenses out of my eyes because of all the little minuscule particles floating about and landing on them.  But I carry these 3 oils around with me, and because of such, wearing glasses for a day is about the only mis-step in my day!  

Yep, I carry a mixture around of this with me. I call it "LLP". Clever name, huh? ;)  Ya, well, I did not make that up - it's what all oilers call it!  I have a few of these made up and sitting around the house. I force my kids to carry them too lol!  They are 18 and 24, but they still listen to Mom!  

This is how I make mine:  I take a 5ml bottle (one I have "upcycled" from an empty Young Living bottle),  add 5 drops each of YL's Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint.  To make it even stronger, sometimes I add 5 drops of Copaiba as well (warning- this REALLY makes it strong!).  Then I fill it up the rest of the way with a carrier oil of your choice (such as grape-seed, fractionated coconut or olive fatty oils) and pop on one of Young Living's roller tops.  Viola!  Apply to the back of your neck, behind your ears, your wrists, or even on the sinus area under your eyes.

Diffusing LLP is also WONDERFUL!  In the Young Living Home or Dewdrop Diffuser, I add 2 to 3 drops of LLP.  It smells fabulous!  I diffuse it every class, and everyone always leaves feeling relaxed, refreshed and happy.

Would you like to have me do a class for you?  I can do a live in-home class for you if you are local to me, or I can arrange one over Facebook.  Just ask!
