Deep Blue – After The Workout

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.

Insect Bites & Stings Treatment

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.

Life’s Essential Oils

Lets start off with my story and how I started using essential oils. After an injury to my knee I was going to physical therapy 2 times a week. I had asked my physical therapist what type of over the counter pain rub she thought was the best. The first words out of her mouth were doTerra’s Deep Blue, then she named a few other over the counter name brands. A light went off in my head, I knew my friend had started selling doTerra so naturally I contacted her to see if I could purchase some of this Deep Blue magic.

Not only did she get me some deep blue she also helped my husband who had a bad cough and suffered from cold endused asthma. So she mixed up some of the oils in some honey and viola! No more cough, this magic cough syrup also helped him with his asthma and now he hardly ever has to use his inhaler, he just takes a bit of the cough syrup when he starts having a hard time breathing. Now I am not claiming that his asthma was cured but it sure helped. Well needless to say I was hooked, I signed up immediately and that is my story in a nutshell.
