Avoid bloating with essential oils

Bloating is very common complaint, caused by too much liquid or gas in the stomach. It’s good idea to consult your doctor to make sure nothing is wrong, but if there is not a medical problem, diet and natural remedies can reduce bloating.

Over eating is very common reason for bloating. It can add gas to your intestines. Processed foods like pies and crackers can give problems easily. Also bananas, peas and cabbage. Reasons behind problems with digestion can be celiac disease (familiar to me!), lactose intolerance and constipation. For some people adding good bacteria to their gut helps a lot. For women their period can cause bloating either before or during.

Problem with digestion

  • Eat often and in peace, but lightly
  • Avoid fizzy drinks
  • Avoid mixing proteins, fruits and starches in the same meal
  • Rub oil to your stomach that has few tea spoons of sunflower oil mixed with two drops of black pepper, ginger and peppermint oil.

Bloating caused by periods

  • Try food that has vitamins E and B6 and magnesium in them
  • Avoid caffeine, sugar and salt
  • Rub your calfs and upper thighs with upward motions and lumbar region and stomach clockwise.

Mix to your massage oil:

  • Few drops of juniper berry, rosemary and lavender mixed with 5 table spoons of grape oil.

Make up tricks with essential oils

I am always on a look out for the perfect mascara! Those who know me, know that I am quite the mascara snob. Here are couple of recipes I have got from Ange Peters.

Tip number 1.

Add a drop of doTerra lavender or rosemary essential oil to your mascara for strengthening your lashes and better their condition. Put a drop or two to your mascara and shake it well. Also move the mascara wand up and down couple of times.

Tip number 2.

Add a drop of doTerra peppermint oil to your lip gloss the same way as lavender oil to your mascara or mix it together in another place. Your lips should get fuller. Make sure that you don’t have cold sores or cuts in your lips since peppermint essential oil is strong.

Getting rid of ticks with essential oils

howtouseessentialoils

Ticks, they ruin the summer day very easily! How to get rid of ticks, before you need to be pulling them out and worrying about lyme disease? My inspiration for this post came from my own midsummer festivities. We were in a beautiful place, that had high grass and low trees with leafs. Luckily nobody got a tick from our group, except our friends’ dog! Our neighbor’s little boy, who is the same age as my son, got a tick from his trip! There are a lot of ticks on the coast.

How do you repel the ticks with as little toxins as possible? I get chills of the idea of showering all those chemicals on to my little boy. And I don’t want those either. You will get a good tick repellent (works also well to other bugs) by mixing some carrier oil (for example olive, coconut and jojoba oil) to lemon, eucalyptus or peppermint oil. Just mix two drops to the carrier oil and rub it into your skin. If you want to make a mixture add 20 drops to a small bottle of oil. Remember to apply it to your skin often enough! I know people who take a little bit of essential oil to their hands and quickly wipe their legs and arms. For kids, seniors and people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to dilute the essential oils. Remember to cover your skin with clothing, especially when working in the bushes or kids playing there.
