essential oils; how you can use them to shorten your stomach virus and disinfect

As a Mama Bear to three young boys disgusting things and events are part of the

territory.

Like farts

Boogies

& Stomach Viruses !

Besides supplementing the boys daily with high quality Whole Food Vitamins it is also

vital to incorporate Essential Oils.

Before I get started on my go to oils for a stomach virus it is important to point out that you have to be extremely particular when choosing what oil company to buy your oils from.

NO 

All oils are not alike.

Some things to look for are make sure they are CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade

Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial oils available in the world today. For an oil to be CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade the oil must be:

  • Pure and natural, with aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants
  • Free from fillers or artificial ingredients; no dilution of active qualities
  • Free of contaminants, pesticides, or chemical residues
  • Rigorously tested for standards of chemical composition
  • Cross tested using mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to ensure exact purity and composition potency
  • Sourced by a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to ensure correct species, growth in ideal environments, and that raw plant materials were carefully harvested at the right time

In our home we not only diffuse but also take these Pure Oils internally which is another reason why it is so important to get high quality.

I start to diffuse oil blends such as

The Protective Blend

This blend has Wild Orange Peel, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils in it. All the oils mentioned have vital germ fighting qualities and are also immune boosting. That is the beauty of Essential Oils they serve multiple purposes.

Next, I grab Roman Chamomille Oil and Ginger Oil

Ginger is most often used in sweets—gingerbread and ginger snaps being two examples. ( which you can also use your oils for cooking if they are CPTG ) Studies have been conducted on Ginger for its common effect on joint health;* however, Ginger is best known as a digestive aid and for helping to ease occasional indigestion and nausea*. Ginger essential oil can also be applied topically or inhaled to help reduce feelings of nausea.*

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.

Cautions

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children.

Roman Chamomile grows close to the ground, reaching only up to a foot in height. It has gray-green leaves, flowers that resemble a daisy, and smells like apple. The plant has been nicknamed the “plant’s physician” because it has positive effects on plants growing nearby. Ancient Romans used the oil for courage during war. While the most common use of chamomile is in teas, Roman Chamomile can also be found in face creams, drinks, hair dyes, shampoos, and perfumes. Roman Chamomile has a calming effect on the skin, mind, and body.* It soothes body systems.*

I kid you not If I diffuse this oil or rub it on the boys feet they go from crazy to calm within seconds.

The Roman Chamomile soothes upset tummies almost instantly.

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.

This week as the virus ran rampant throughout our home I would spray lemon oil mixed with vinegar on every surface.

Because the oils are concentrated usually a few drops is all it takes.

Another Stomach virus oil I use is Lavender.

Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume; it is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities which continue to be Lavender’s most notable qualities. Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to promote a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.

Uses

  • Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet at bedtime.
  • Keep a bottle of Lavender on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations.
  • Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining Lavender with water in a spray bottle.
  • Take internally to reduce anxious feelings.*
  • Use in cooking to soften citrus flavors and add a flavorful twist to marinades, baked goods, and desserts.

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.

I know this can seem like information overload, but I assure you once you get into a routine of using oils in your day to day family life it becomes second nature when viruses arise.

I finally would like to point out that Peppermint, Cardamom, Germanium and Spearmint oil have upset stomach calming effects.

My boys instinctually know to ask me for an oil instead of running to the doctor when phsyical ailments arise and that makes me proud. Somtimes whether stomach flu or common cold we need to give our bodies a fighting chance in this immune destroying culture we live in. And as usual I will bring it back home to the point and purpose of everything I do.

God

When you don’t pump your body full of synthetic garbage on a day to day basis, you can actually see Gods handiwork in your health and give him all the glory..

Lets not forget that we are ” Fearfully and Wonderfully Made”  Psalm 139:14

And God has made our bodies machines that CAN and WILL fight off infection if given the correct aids and nutrition.

Yes modern medicine has had many advances in past centuries, but in the last few decades I have seen more destruction, than healing in the hospitals and medical industry.

After all HEALTH CARE is really SICK CARE

No I do not claim to be immune to sickness because my families diets are just that great, but I can say from experience the natural remedies we use daily shorten, if not minimize them.

We eat junk food,

ice cream

and pizza.

All in moderation folks 🙂

I hope this post was able to help you with your essential oil knowledge and as always feel free to email or contact me via social media with any questions !

Happy Monday Friends!
