So my education of essential oils continues. Recently a friend told me about how Lemongrass helped her with her plantar fasciitis. If you have ever had this believe me you want anything that will help you for the reason your feet literally hurt just to walk on them after you have been sitting is even worse. So since I suffer from chronic plantar fasciitis I thought I would give it a try.
I put a couple of drops on my instep and heal and it was weird I thought at first nothing was happening and then the pain just started to go away. Now this is in no way a cure, but let me tell you the relief you get from using the Lemongrass is heavenly. When your feet hurt it is hard to try to get through your day because your mind is on what can I do to relieve this constant pain in my feet.
Here is a little history on Lemongrass I found interesting:
Lemongrass has been used for infectious illnesses and fever, as an insecticide, and as a sedative to the central nervous system. Lemongrass helps with circulation, improving digestion, improving eyesight fevers, flatulence, headaches, clearing infections, repairing ligaments, waking up the lymphatic system, getting the oxygen flowing, respiratory problems, sore throats, tissue regeneration and water retention.
So as you can see Lemongrass is a good oil to have in your collection. Remember if you would like this or any other essential oil products visit me at Life’s Enhancing Oils or contact via facebook @LifesEnhancingOils or simply private message me.
* Modern Essentials, eighth addition, 2016,*
Yesterday was my first day at water aerobics let me tell you it is a workout. I do believe that the instructor was a bit sadistic. No not really but I know that every muscle in my body was worked and since I am not in top shape, my muscles let me know who was boss. As I was driving home I could feel my muscles getting more and more stiff. By the time I arrived home I had a hard time even getting out of the car ( you can laugh ).
So after a nice hot shower with my favorite doTERRA products, I headed straight for my Deep Blue oil and topical cream. After wishing I had a vat of this magical oil / cream that I could just soak my whole body in I settled for a just using like a lotion and rubbed it all over my tired sore body.
If you like to work out or have Arthritis doTERRA’S Deep Blue should be your go to topical pain relief. It will not cure your Arthritis however, it sure does make it bearable especially if you are exercising.
So if you would like a sample of Deep Blue or would like to purchase a tube, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my web page https://www.mydoterra.com/lifesenhancingoils.com
Today I worked out in the yard most of the morning mowing, weed whipping, pulling weeds and watering. I don’t know about you but I am always filthy grass and dirt everywhere and cannot wait until I can come in and jump in the shower.
If you haven’t noticed I love my doTERRA products but even more so when I really just want a hot shower. To me there is no better smell then that of doTERRAS salon essential shampoo and creme rinse. But I also love the body wash as well. Then I know this sounds crazy but I wash off with the Serenity Bath Bar mainly because it relaxes me.
Then I saved the best for last, after I get out all dried off I treat myself to doTerras Body Butter. This like the shampoo and creme rinse it has the best citrus smell and makes your skin feel silky, soft and soothing to tired body.
If you would like any of these products that I have mentioned or are interested in receiving samples please contact me at email@example.com or https://www.mydoterra.com/lifesenhancingoils
So today I was thinking about what I was going to blog about today when my husband came home with his shirt off. Well I thought he was hot but in reality he had been stung by a wasp. He had the windows down in our vehicle and one flew in and stung him not once but twice before he was able to pull over and take his shirt off.
I had sent a text to a friend of mine asking what type of oils I could use for his bites. She responded with these instructions:
- First make sure the stinger is removed
- Apply 1-2 drops of Purify. This will draw out the poison and start to ease the pain. Apply 2-3 times for a few days
- Next apply 1-2 drops of Lavender. Lavender will help with inflammation and pain. Apply every 15-30 minutes as needed.
Well it was a success! After about 30 minutes I looked at his back and the welts were almost gone! The swelling had gone down so was the painI did a second application and honestly cannot believe how well this worked my husband says it doesn’t hurt anymore.
These two oils are a must have in your first aid kit they are so versatile in their uses.

The second class is Summertime Essentials
Whether it is the sun, pesky mosquitoes, chlorinated hair, seasonal allergies, or BBQ festivities, it is important to focus on your health and avoid the toxins in many of the most common summertime products such as:
Chemical-laden sun lotion
Unnatural bug repellent
Questionable body scrubs
And so much more!
On Thursday, June 29th at 6:30 pm MDT, I am hosting Summertime Essentials, which is a Facebook Class focused on preparing you for a healthy summer filled with fun.
There is no reason to suffer from too much sun exposure when you go to the beach, it is absurd to stay away from camping due to bugs, and you should not even think twice about swimming in chlorine in order to cool off.
But it is important to enjoy all of these activities while staying healthy and avoiding many of the most common summertime products which are filled with harmful ingredients.
