Brindle Butts and Smelly Stuffs
I made a sale!.. I have absolutely no idea how! It's exciting though.. things have really started to turn for us financially... For those of you who don't know, two years ago, I was laid off from my $65,000.00/yr. job and have not been able to really replace that income. Needless to say things have been tight ever since. I sort of took it as an opportunity to do what I love to do... Work with Critters... and I'm going to hold onto this mindless day job as long as I can because, well.. I don't really trust the Universe THAT much... I'm really hoping to get my essential oils stuff up and running soon. I've become a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils, in my opinion, the purest essential oils available. Sure you could go to the health food store and pick up any old brand, but you never really know what you are getting. Young Living Oils are the best I have run across and they actually smell like plants! I have a domain name but all it does now is forward you to the Young Living World Website. I really hope to get to the point where the main page gives you info on using essential oils for your critters and for you! I'm actually mixing up some stuff tonight for a friend who has a cold. For all those interested in the formula (it's my own and I'm awful proud!):
  • 3 drops Rosemary Essential Oil: Therapeutic Grade
  • 2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil: Therapeutic Grade
  • 3 drops Lavender Essential Oil: Therapeutic Grade
  • 4 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Therapeutic Grade
  • 2 Tablespoons carrier oil: you can use Apricot Kernel Oil, Almond Oil or my favorite, plain old Olive oil.. avoid baby oil.. it ends up being a barrier instead of a carrier..
Blend all ingredients in a dropper bottle, shot glass, tupperware container, whatever... just make sure it's clean. To use: (Remember a little goes a long way!.. don't over do! More is not necessarily better. When I say a few drops.. I mean a few drops!)
  • Place a few drops on a tissue or a cotton ball and put in a ziploc bag. Give a sniff whenever you need to clear your sinuses
  • Rub a small amount on temples, chest or back of your neck
  • Put a few drops in a humdifier, heat vent, pot of simmering water, or diffuser to help remove germs from the environment and provide a gentle inhalant (room method)
If you wish to use this for your dog, please dilute AGAIN in two more tablespoons of carrier oil. You may place a few drops on the back of their neck to help clear sinuses and promote bacteria smashing. DO NOT put by their eyes and DO NOT use directly on cats... Animals will also benefit from the room method.
Why does this work? Rosemary is an expectorant and mucolytic, Lavender has antibacterial properties as well as being very calming and promoting cell regeneration , Eucalyptus has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties, and Peppermint can stimulate circulation and effects the respiratory system. Enjoy!

  1. I’m so tempted. But I just spend a ton of money on Lucy’s xrays, so I’ll have to wait a few weeks to build up my pennies again. I’m so tired of getting sick. I really enjoy running (okay, I really don’t enjoy it that much, but I want to keep doing it) and whenever I get sick I stop for about 3 weeks. 🙁

  2. Is there any way to buy blends, like you recommend? Or do you have to buy the singles and blend them yourself? Or if I just started with one, which would be best?

  3. You can buy blends.. I don’t know who makes what..I only know Young Living Blends … I wouldn’t know who else to recommend… if you wanted to get just one, I would say Lavender.. it has a multitude of uses… however, if you wanted one for germos I would get the Eucalyptus. Even if you got Eucalyptus and Lavender you would be really set for a while.. I use those two the most.

    The thing with blends is that there is a synergestic effect.. the effect of them all together is greater than each individual one.

    do you know someone who would share with ya? I really wish they made smaller bottles. .. they really do last very long. You could split them up.
