F.L.O.O.T

One of my first wow moment with oils was when I had been suffering with a gripey tummy for a week and having tried everything had resigned myself to going to my sisters 40th (already delayed by lockdown) and not being able to eat or drink and feeling rather nauseous the whole time. In desperation I messaged my friend, an aromatherapist, and she told me to take these 5 oils in a vegetable capsule. I did without holding much hope and only realise later, having eaten, drunk and danced all night that there was no tummy pain or nausea in sight. 

This combination is particularly good for colds, flus and other viruses. I always have a rollerball of this made up and for my eldest son, who won't take calpol or paracetamol, this has been my trusty friend in the middle of the night when his temperature is high and neither of us have had much sleep.

Doterra oils are certified food grade (not all of them) so these are the only ones I use.

On Guard Oil Blend

I'm not kidding when I say I use this all over the house. A blend of cinnamon, wild orange, rosemary and eucalyptus these are powerful antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and can be diffused into the air and used to clean and purify household surfaces.

Citrus oils are also very uplifting so what I love about this is when I diffuse it when we are under the weather it does give a mood boost. You can also gently inhale straight from the bottle. 

You can mix 3-5 drops with 250ml of water and use to clean countertops and other surfaces but I use our cleaner concentrate to clean pretty much everything in the house. I also love using the toothpaste at night (I use one with more whitening ooomph in the morning) and I add drops of On Guard oil with four other oils (lemon, tea tree, frankincense and oregano) to make a 'flu bomb' which helps the bodies natural defences against cold and flu viruses (and tummy problems!) 

I carry the On Guard spray in my handbag to use as a hand and surface sanitiser on the go - you know when you get on a train and your kids basically want to lick everything, well this helps with that.

Snow Moon

🌕 The full moon for February is usually call the snow moon but can also be the ice moon, storm moon or hunger moon.

❄️ Its full moon in Aquarius thought to be an unconventional and trailblazing sign so if you are planning or journalling this full moon it's time to put your most creative and inventive ideas space. Time to think about the idea you've had but have always thought 'it will never work'. Its also very passionate so basically get thinking about something that excites you.

🌕 If you have crystals its time to super charge them in moonlight. Pop them on a windowsill - I always remember looking after my friend Katie's house when she was away and finding crystals on every window frame.

❄️ Write a list of all the things you're worried about people you'd like to forgive, burn them and release them (this can continue as a ritual as the moon wanes)

🌕 The full moon is a time of balance, it's a time to focus on the 'harvest'. Pay attention to all the things you've manifested so far and all that's yet to manifest. A full moon bath is perfect to focus on abundance and a time to relax.

Air Blend

Not as glamorous as some of the other oils I use but this one is used a lot in my house. Designed to open and soothe the tissues of the respiratory system it also has antiviral and can help with anxiety, asthma, bronchitis, congestion, and coughs

It has a really fresh and uplifting smell including bay, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, tea tree, and lemon oils.

I often diffuse this either on it's own or with Purify and On Guard for extra oomph. I have also made up a rollerball (see below) which I roll on the boys chests and backs when they are blocked up, have a cold or cough. It genuinely makes a difference and it's so nice to avoid the more chemically alternatives.

  • Can be applied on the chest, back or bottoms of the feet
  • Diffuse into the air or apply to the palms of the hands and cup over the nose and mouth and breathe deeply.
  • Inhale from the bottle
  • Drop 2-3 drops on the floor of a hot shower and inhale whilst showering
  • Ashtma/Bronchitis - diffuse or inhale from bottle
  • Coughs - add 8 drops to 5ml fractionated coconut oil in a small roll on bottle and apply a small amount on the chest, back and forehead
  • Congestion - 3-5 drops to a small bowl of hot water and inhale

It may not be the most exciting oils but it's one I would definitely not be without - great for all the family.

Frankincense

 One of my favourite and most-used oils. Created through steam distillation of resin Frankincense has been used for thousands of years in cosmetics, perfumes, skincare and medicines With a rich, deep, warm scent and blends beautifully with all oils.

🌳 Focus energy, improve concentration. It eases hyperactivity, impatience, irritability and impatience.

🌳 Is great to diffuse during yoga practice and can enhance spiritual awareness. In religious ceremonies it was used to help communication with the creator.

  • Arthritis: Can be massaged into joints affected by arthritis (with coconut oil)
  • Depression: Can be inhaled directly from the bottle, applied neat to the temples or diluted with coconut oil for massage or diffused for depression
