One of the main reasons for starting a blog on our website was to share with everyone all of our favorite recipes, cooking tips and essentials that we use every day on "The Farm." About 6 months ago I was introduced to the concept of using Essential Oils for our health, in our everyday cleaning and also cooking. As a family we have greatly benefited from utilizing them in so many different ways, that I had to share a few of my favorites.
My father has suffered from seasonal threats throughout his entire life. He was constantly clearing his throat, especially during peak season. My Dad now takes 1 teaspoon of local raw honey with a few drops peppermint, lavender and lemon essential oil, in the morning and evening. His throat clearing is completely gone and he is off all of his other medications. What a blessing this has been for him.
Living on "The Farm" we also have our share of bugs and my kids are constantly getting cuts and scrapes!!! Anytime my kids get a bug bite or an owie, I put a little lavender and/or melaleuca on them. It immediately stops the itching and takes the inflammation away. Now, my kids run to me asking for some oils to put on their ouchies.
Lastly, I have looked for a dryer sheet for the longest time that are free from chemicals and that work well, but have been unsuccessful until now. I now use 4 wool dryer balls in each dryer load with a few drops of my favorite essential oil on them. Lemongrass and Lavender are my two favorite smells, but there are so many to choose from. I also love to put a few drops of Purify or Lemongrass in the actual washer, especially with my stinky work-out clothes. Our clothes come out smelling amazing and static free, but most importantly free from all of the chemicals that are found in dryer sheets.
