I am enjoying learning more and more about the incredible qualities that Oils have to help us to overcome so many different aspects of our health.
I am a great believer in alternative ways of helping us to use the great gifts which we have been blessed with here on this planet. There is so much we can enjoy here on this amazing planet. The history of the Essential Oils from the beginning of time. We see right through history worldwide the uses for healing and for beautifying and making our food taste great too.
Essential oils for Dogs. my favourite pet loves Lavender and Peppermint rubbed on her. Helps her to relax
The more I learn of the benefits of these Essential oils the more convinced I am that they are the way to go to help people fight of infections and even prevent infections.
By using the oils myself on a daily basis as a complete body oiling after my shower with Lavender and other mixes of oils I find that my body fights off anything that the world may through at it. As LAVENDER has a great deal of properties which I am just now learning about it is amazing just what a little power house it is.

Do not just take my word for it, of if you doubt my word then I would recommend you look for yourself and test it for yourself. check out here for more information regarding the oils and their great properties which can help you.
Recently I have been reading more and more about the benefits of the Essential Oils not only for ourselves but also for animals.
I am a great believer in using the best gifts that God has provided us and when we consider our make up and how He created us it makes sense to take a good hard look at what is available to us. I have been treating my precious pouch with a combination of Peppermint and Lavender with a base of pure extra virgin Olive Oil to help her with a tummy ache and also she can get very stressed. My furr baby is nearly 12 and has had a very interesting life so far.
While living in Spain I discovered a great way to protect me dog from Fleas, Ticks and other nasty parasites that crawl about their flesh. I am introducing it to you here because it is a WellBeing item which does work and has worked for my dog for many years. I highly recommend you take a good look at the product and get back to me. Pet Protector. I have recently returned to the UK and am starting to promote is in the Uk and will be taking it with me on my travels.
I also will be taking with me my own mixes of my oils to share with others. The combinations I make work on my dog and hopefully will be able to help others. However to see more about the Essential Oils I use on myself and my animals please click here.
Peppermint essential oil provides a familiar, recognisable scent, but Peppermint is so much more than just a nostalgic, fresh aroma. This oil can be diffused to create a stimulating, focused atmosphere for daily tasks. You can also apply it topically to create a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, which can be very soothing after hard physical activity. We recommend using Peppermint essential oil aromatically or topically anytime you want to add a pleasant variety to your routine!
· Cools fatigued muscles after physical activity
· Produces a focused environment when diffused
· Provides a refreshing experience when mixed with your favourite shampoo or when applied to skin after a warm day in the sun
· Creates an invigorating and refreshing experience when inhaled
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. It is great for winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that make it just as beneficial for boosting stamina and energy. Lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. The French scientist René Gattefossé was the first to discover these properties when he severely burned his hands in a laboratory explosion.
I am at the moment looking at ways to help myself deal with depression. Afterall, we are all struggling to deal with major issues which have not been been self-inflicted, circumstances beyond our own control.
I have been looking into the various combination of oils which can help eleviate stress and my personal favourite combination at the moment is Lavender and Abundance which does seem to have a very calming and relaxing effect on me.
I can understand that there are a various degrees of depression and reasons for being depressed. Mine when I started to look back to my childhood as part of my own healing process of prayer and deliverance it was really quite a shock to me to recognise just how much damage is caused because of ignorance and lack of knowledge and understanding on our own personal behaviour can have on other people.
As children we are subjected to the whims and personalities around us. As adults the feelings we had as children are still there and undealt with until we find we can no longer cope with given situations.
I personally have found having relationships a real struggle because of the events of my own childhood experiences. I am not making excuses, just am aware of the challenges it throws up when you start to understand your own emotional barreness and in some cases could be seen as frigid or even down right uncaring.
However, when taking everything into account and searching for an answer I have found that bringing everything out in the open to yourself helps you to face the issues and move on. Prayer to me is the only answer. Having a relaxed environment in order to face the inner demons that keep us trapped makes it much easier to focus on getting things organised in our minds to face the truth of ourself.
I personally do have a history of Reactive Depression brought about by my reacting to circumstances around me which cause me a great deal of stress and anxiety.
I do praise God that through prayer and relaxation and preparedness to face oneself has a great benefit as it allows you to forgive and forget the past and move on. Only once you start the process of facing yourself.
I have lived for a long time with these self same feelings and for me it nearly killed me when I was 21. Sadly in those days there was not much help for me as the internet did not exist and neither did a lot of self help books to help you overcome.
I have found this little book which may help you to find a way to deal with your own anxiety. I pray and give my fears and anxieties and fears to God which has helped me since I was 21. So if you are interested in finding a long term permanent solution to your fears, then please read my other blogs which may be of some help to you.
In the meantime here is the little book I meantioned for your benefit.
For the great feeling of relaxation and peace I recommend Lavender as it often has helped me in a whole different ways, as a young girl my daughter would go into my garden and pick the lavender flowers for me to make me a tea which always help me. Especially when I was feeling really stressed as I was suffering with a problem with my wisdom teeth at the time and found the tea really soothing. Now I use the oils in my foot massage in the mornings and a roll-on which I have put together for my own use.
I really like the quality of their oils and use them in my own diffuser at home and am preparing one for my car.
I think he looks delightful.
