Healing with Essentials Oils

 Paullene Caraher

Natural oils can be used for a wide range of different reasons and there are several natural remedies out there that incorporate oils that can have potential health and well-being benefits.

For example, some people find that using coconut oil as a natural alternative to mouthwash can help to improve their oral health.

Consequently, oil pulling is an ayurvedic practice that involves swishing a spoonful of coconut oil around your mouth for twenty minutes.

It is thought that oil pulling can remove excess plaque, freshen breath and even whiten your teeth.

Just remember that if you are hoping to achieve a brighter, whiter smile, you might want to supplement oil pulling with a whitening treatment carried out by a Dentist in Naples or a dentist in your area.

The next oil sharing will be on October 3, the first Wednesday, from 1:00-2:00 p.m.

We are taking a summer break!

The June meeting brought a lot of people together and, hopefully, their pain is being reduced by the Morphine Bomb. At least 20 were there, and many made two vials, spray-bottle and/or jar for the cream. There were two recipes available:

1. Carrier oil (coconut oil, almond oil) – 10 drops of each: frankincense, copaiba, conifer (an oil from the fir/pine tree family)

2. Carrier oil (coconut oil, almond oil) – 10 drops of each: frankincense, lemongrass, marjoram

For the spray bottle: Witch hazel instead of carrier oil

For the cream: Aloe vera gel instead of the carrier oil

If you have questions during the summer, please call Paullene or Shelley. We can order oils for you or make up a vial if you happen to need it right away. We use Young Living Oils. The Young Living Company calls their process Seed to Seal because all aspects of growing the plants and distilling the oils are under the auspices of Young Living.

The sharing is in the SunBird Golf Resort located at 6250 Sunbird Blvd., Chandler, AZ 85249, on the third floor in the Navajo room. When you enter the clubhouse, you are on the second floor. Call Paullene at 602-292-7858 or Shelley Zavarella at 312-521-0451 (you can text on these phones) or email [email protected] or [email protected].

Look for the announcement in the September and October issues of the Splash and SunBird News.
