How Important Is Sleep To You?

sleep

One of the issues that really “wakes” people up to talk about is sleep. Many factors contribute to a restful sleep that allows your body to get time to recover and regenerate itself for another day. Many people struggle to get that sleep on a consistent basis and are willing to try just about anything to get assistance in having better sleep. Unfortunately many products meant to assist in sleeping can leave a person dependent on such aid or drowsy long after they need.

Do essential oils help? Absolutely!

Having said that you need to know which oils will help with sleep. This is where it becomes more complicated. Have you heard that Lavender is a great oil to help you sleep better, only to find out it actually kept you awake? This is because Lavender is a great help to aid in sleep, but it only works for half of the people. Is Lavender oil the oils to help you sleep? How can one know?

Lavender22

Before we can specify which oils will help YOU sleep better, it’s important to understand that there are two dominant nervous system types: Sympathetic dominant or a Parasympathetic dominant. Everyone has both of these running in their bodies, but we tend to be dominant in one of them. Our Master blender and Certified Clinical Aromatherapist has formulated with great care TWO blends for sleep, one for each nervous system type. So which one will work best for you?

Which Type Are You?

It reveals itself when we get really stressed, when you are really, really stressed, or have had a very bad day. So that we can identify which nervous system type is dominant for you, imagine that you have had the worst stressful day. We are talking you just found out you are being foreclosed on, lost your job, found very concerning health news, had a loved in an accident… that type of stuff. Feel that stress rising?

Under this major stress factors one will generally tip their hand as to how they are wired. You will either have the fight/flight instinct kick in or you will have a great desire to nestle down and rest. The Sympathetic type is the one that under such stress will need to get up and work, exercise, move, go, go, go. The Parasympathetic type under such stress will want to get a blanket, snuggle down, possibly eat, and lay low. Now that you hopefully know we can look at the oils that can aid with sleep.

Now ask yourself these questions:

Am I the kind of person that when I am really stressed out I want to walk or run it off or work it off or go punch something, also you tend to get an upset stomach, gassy, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation when highly stressed, reading a book for 3 days straight and ignoring everything else would drive you nuts. Then you are sympathetic system dominant, and the RELAX blend has the essential oils that will relax your system so you may sleep better.

OR

Am I the kind of person that when I am really stressed out I want to snuggle up and rest. You feel like snuggling down, sleeping, resting, pulling a blanket over you and you may want to eat something and just nestle down, cocoon in. You also tend to hold onto emotional things and not let them go. Reading a book for three days straight and ignoring everything else would delight you if you had the right book. Then you are parasympathetic dominant, and the RELEASE blend has the essential oils that will relax your system so you can sleep better.

Do You Know Which Type You Are?

If you are Sympathetic dominant, the RELAX blend will work best for you. RELAX Blend are the oils that work best in calming the mind for a better sleep of the Sympathetic type. It has the oils of Frankincense, Ylang Ylang, Neroli, Petitgrain, Sweet Orange, Blood Orange, Sweet Marjoram, Red Mandarin, and Vetiver. Any of these single oils can aid with calming and help with a more restful sleep. If you are one that wakes up in the middle of the night and can’t turn off your mind, then you will want to consider this blend in quieting the mind and allowing you to get back to sleep as well.

The RELAX blend is also the blend to help calm and focus your mind. Works great for kids in school who have problems concentrating. It calms and focuses the mind and is physically calming, great to use any time of day.

Relax 8-10-16

If you are Parasympathetic dominant, the RELEASE blend will work best for you. RELEASE Blend are the oils that work to calm and relax the Parasympathetic type. It has the oils of Lavender, Balsam Fir, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and Cypress. This blend of oils allows one to release emotions that may stir one up and make it difficult to calm down to get that restful sleep needed.

The RELEASE blend can also aid your body to release very low-frequency emotions like anger, hate, frustration, anxiety, rage, etc. so you can have calm peace. It is powerful enough to release these low-frequency emotions from the cells of your body so you can enter into calm. This combination can emotionally calm you and let your physical body get the rest it needs. We have many body workers who love to use this blend as a finish to their therapies. It works to calm a person and works for emotional release. A really useful and beautiful blend. This blend is also a great choice for a massage!

Release 8-10-16

It is highly recommended to use Spearmint essential oil with either blend you choose. If you first inhale Spearmint essential oil for about 5 to 10 minutes, emotionally it nurtures and calms your inner child. Then inhale the Relax or Release blend for about 5 to 10 minutes.

SpearmintUSDA

 

 

What’s the Application for Enhancing Sleep?

These are so easy to use! The application is simply to inhale the essential oil. Place 2-3 drops of your oil on a cotton ball and breath deeply for 5-10 minutes RIGHT before you are ready to lay down on your pillow and lights out. You can also place the cotton ball next to your pillow to continue to breathe the oils throughout the night. If you wake up and feel the smell is too strong simply throw the cotton ball on the nightstand or ground.

Need to calm your inner child?

Many times stress can be a factor in preventing a restful sleep or make it difficult to go to sleep. We have seen great things happen if you first calm yourself before using one of these blends. As adults we are not always able to express ourselves and how we truly feel. This by many is considered our “inner child”. Sometimes that little person inside us is raging and is very upset. Consider breathing in either Spearmint oil or Mandarin red oil to help calm your inner child. Place a couple drops of one of these oils on a cotton ball and breathe them deeply for 5-10 minutes. Both of these oils also help to calm the inner child, and is also great for kids!

Need an energy clearing to make your space more peaceful?

One more thing to consider before getting ready to sleep. We have energy all around us, and sometimes there may be an energy in our bedroom that is negative, stagnant, or unsettling. If you have kids they sometimes sense this energy and express concern or fear. They just are sensitive to the energy around them and don’t like it. CLEAN & CLEAR Blend was formulated to clean air and surfaces as well as clear energy. Simply mix a few drops of the CLEAN & CLEAR blend with water in a mister bottle and spray the room, bedding, pillow, and yourself before going to bed and feel the energy lighten and dissipate, and you will feel the difference.

Essential oils can absolutely aid with a better more restful sleep. No two people are the same so don’t get stuck if one oil doesn’t help. Just keep playing with it until you find your oil or blend that helps you relax, calm and sleep better.

Try one of these TODAY for better sleep TONIGHT!

“Therapeutic Grade” vs. Organic = NOT the Same Thing

100% Pure Therapeutic Grade is “THE BEST”. It’s what you want to look for in essential oils……..WAIT A MINUTE! Even though we’ve all heard this, let’s look at this a little closer to see if it’s really true.

A fisheye image of a confused geeky-looking woman.

 

 

 

Is therapeutic grade really the best sign of quality with essential oils? Is this the sign of quality you want to be looking for in essential oils? Are there any regulating bodies that govern the use of therapeutic grade? The answer to all of these questions is NO.

 

 

 

The first thing you should know is that ANYONE with ANY product, no matter how diluted or adulterated, can use the term “100% pure therapeutic grade” right on their labels. It’s true. This term is completely UNregulated, which means anyone can use it regardless if they’re selling good products…or not. You could even go down to the river and scoop up some mud in a jar and sell it as 100% pure therapeutic grade mud. Regardless of if it’s really beneficial for the body or not, you can label pretty much any product you want 100% pure therapeutic grade.

100% Pure Therapeutic Grade

  • So if ANYONE can use this term
  • and it is completely UNregulated is it a REAL sign of quality?
  • The answer is NO.

Is there a standard for essential oils that IS regulated? One that you can have trust in to verify the cleanliness and quality of essential oils? YES. It is the USDA certified organic. 

USDA Certified Organic

  • NOT everyone can use this term (you must be USDA certified and compliant)
  • This term IS highly regulated
  • So is this term a REAL sign of quality?
  • The answer is YES.

USDA round

 

 

 

 

Can anyone say they are “organic”? NO. The USDA stepped in to protect the consumer and actually owns the word “organic”. At first this seems wrong, but if you understand WHY the USDA did this then it makes a lot of sense. They did this because there were, and are, so many companies out there claiming to have organic, clean products but then selling non-organic products for a premium organic price. Basically lying to and deceiving consumers into thinking they’re getting a better quality item than they actually are. So to protect the consumer from dishonest companies, in 2002 the USDA made it illegal to claim to have organic products unless you can actually prove that you really have organic products.

Because of this, companies can no longer put organic, certified organic, or anything leading consumers to believe a product is better than organic (no such thing) on their labels, literature, or marketing materials. They did this to prevent companies lying and misleading the consumer. If companies have organic products, they have to actually prove it to the USDA – which then proves it to the consumer – with the USDA certified organic seal. Once they prove they actually have organic products then they can put the USDA certified organic seal on their labels. These are the companies that are doing it right, and legally. Support them! They are going through the federally required steps to show the consumer they actually have organic products.

really organic2

Let’s look at some common myths on the subject:

Myth

Myth:

The USDA does not certify essential oils.

FACT:

Does the USDA certify essential oils? The answer is YES, of course they do.

Myth:  

So-and-so company has organic oils, but they can’t get certified organic oils from outside the USA, so they can’t put it on their labels.

FACT:

You absolutely CAN get certified organic essential oils from outside the USA. Purify Skin Therapy sourced MOST of their certified organic essential oils outside of the USA. Companies are perpetuating this lie because certified organic essential oils can cost up to 7 times more than non-organic oils, they could get them if they wanted to, but most companies don’t want to pay more for certified organic oils. It can really cut into your profit. So-and-so company wants people to believe their oils are organic, but unless they’re willing and able to prove it through USDA certification…don’t believe them. If you really want to be a savvy consumer and not be fooled: Look for the USDA certified organic seal on the label of your bottle. That way you know for sure you’re getting the highest quality clean essential oils from the best sources all over the world.

Myth:

USDA certification really doesn’t mean anything.

FACT:

USDA certification guarantees you that the plants used to make the oil come from nonGMO seeds. It guarantees you that the plants were raised according to National Organic Standards and that no toxic or synthetic biocides are used on the plant. It guarantees you that the plant is harvested and handled according to strict standard for organic products. This is the quality the other companies want you to believe they have – but they can’t prove it. The USDA proves it and guarantees you are really getting this quality.

Compass concept with the needle pointing a word. Conceptual image over white for achieving competitive excellence

 

Purify Skin Therapy has raised the bar in essential oil quality, and now you are guaranteed you’re actually getting the quality you think you are. Most of our clients will tell you: You can smell the difference!

 

Purify Skin Therapy now offers:

  • 44 individual USDA Certified Organic essential oils

The Chakras are the Body’s energy centers. They are where your body pulls in energy from the ambient energy all around us. The Chakras then use that energy to power our bodies physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Anciently, many different cultures have taught about energy centers in the body that need to be energized, charged, and balanced in order to maintain a healthy, balanced, vibrant life. Modern science is now capable of verifying that these energy centers actually exist, but they don’t understand the impact of them to our overall health.

So what if the chakras aren’t balanced and working? Then your physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies don’t get the power they need to function properly. Most people suffer from this deficiency, which is a tragedy because balancing and energizing your Chakras is so easy to do with our powerful Chakra blends. By using these powerful Chakra blends you can support, boost, and stimulate your entire physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies to function on a higher more balanced level. You will feel the difference these amazing oils make. 

We are actually very energetic beings that go through this life literally surrounded with energy. Just like fish swim around in the water we are constantly surrounded by energy. Have you ever felt negative energy? Have you ever felt positive energy? Have you ever felt energy being sucked from you? Have you ever lacked energy? Look around at all the people around you and notice that they all have different energy, it is constantly changing, and so is yours.

Your body is a complex weave of physical systems,

emotional reactions, and spirit energy. All of this

is powered and supported by your body’s energy centers: the Chakras.

Chakra Box Sticker

There are seven main Chakras found on the body, and several more above and below the body. Each Chakra has an area of the body that it powers and governs. When you are balancing and energizing these Chakras life is good, upbeat, and you are physically healthy. When a chakra becomes unbalanced it can result in mental, spiritual, and physical imbalances that affect your health. 

Did you know:

Using high frequency of essential oils to balance your body’s

high-frequency Chakra energies

is one of the fastest and easiest ways to help pull the Chakras into balance? 

We really want you to understand the Chakras, how they work, and how you can balance and energize them with Purify’s powerful Chakra Oils. We have created a Chakra training video, taught by a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist. It goes into great depth about each of the Chakras, what they are doing, and how to balance them with essential oils. It’s a free video. Check it out here.

Here’s a very basic, quick summary of each of your Chakras:

The Root Chakra is RED and is the Chakra that “roots” you to earth energy. It is grounding and supporting. All the basic necessities to live (your right for nourishment, your right to warmth and shelter, your right to be loved, your right to belong) reside in the root chakra. The Root Chakra also governs over the Elimination System.

1root2

The Sacral Chakra is ORANGE and it is your center for pleasure, emotions, relationships, and joy! This is your body’s fluidity and happiness. Creativity, play, sexuality, and enjoyment of life come from this energy center. The Sacral Chakra also governs over the Urinary and Reproductive Systems.

2sacral3

The Solar Plexus Chakra is YELLOW and it is your body’s power center. It controls your body’s energy, power, and will. This is your body’s fiery source of power and strength. Your desire and your will manifest here. The Solar Plexus Chakra also governs over the Digestive System.

3solar3

The Heart Chakra is GREEN and is the center for love, compassion, forgiveness, and openness. This chakra helps you connect to people, and love and cherish people and relationships. The Heart Chakra also governs over the Circulatory and Respiratory Systems.

4heart3

The Throat Chakra is BLUE and is the center for communication, speech, and your power to express yourself. It is your voice and your ability to express your opinions peacefully and powerfully. The Throat Chakra also governs over the Respiratory System.

5throat3

The Third Eye Chakra is INDIGO and is the center to see things and to see things clearly. Your 6th sense, your intuition reigns here. The Third Eye Chakra also governs over the Limbic or Emotional System.

6thirdeye3

The Crown Chakra is your connection to Divinity. Your connection to your Powerful Creator. The Crown Chakra is intense high frequency energy that connects you to your higher power and the Universe.

7crown3

Hopefully you can see that if there is a system in your body that you are having trouble with it simply may not have the energy to do all that the body needs it to. This is why we have created the Chakra oils. They were formulated with the intention of balancing and energizing that specific energy center on the body.

Purify Skin Therapy’s Chakra Oils are intricate, powerful blends, formulated specifically for each Chakra. They help to pull the Chakra into balance and are quite effective. You simply have to try them to believe how powerful they are. They can have a huge impact on your overall health and on your physical health. Check them out here.

Cold and Flu Season ~ Have You Been Sick Yet?

ache3

Have you been sick yet? Anyone in your house been sick? With the seasons changing we are seeing more people asking us what to do when they start getting sick.

Essential oils can really give powerful assistance to and support the body when it’s being invaded by germs. It is difficult to explain everything essential oils do to assist your body with illness, but we will be sure to hit the highlights.

Let’s first discuss how often you will need to treat yourself. For illustration purposes imagine that the germ (a bacteria or a virus) that is invading your body is a small spark of fire. Fires are started by a small spark, they then begin to grow slowly, but as they grow suddenly the fire gets bigger and bigger and it grows faster and faster. Ever felt this with illness? This is because illness starts with a small exposure to a germ, but that germ gets busy really fast and starts propagating a full blown infection, literally overnight!

germs1

It may start with a little tickle in the back of your throat, and then that tickle turns into a scratch in your throat, then your nose and ears may start to feel clogged, your lymph in your neck may then swell, and in no time your whole body is feeling the effects of that germ’s infestation.

So how do you use essential oils to combat these pesky, illness causing germs? Attack them as soon as you start feeling ANY symptoms coming on. And by attack them, we mean use essential oils to help keep them at bay. For example, if my throat gave me the first sign of an illness symptom: a little tickle, a scratchy feeling, a cough; then I would immediately treat that tickle with a drop of essential oil. That may be just enough to put out that “spark” before it becomes a fire. If it doesn’t go away within a few minutes I would again use another drop and finish putting out that “spark”.

germs-no-no

If a person has an illness that is a full blown “fire” then one drop of essential oil will be like putting a bucket of water on a forest fire. You may not see any difference. You would have to be much more aggressive with the essential oils and treat more frequently. The nice thing about all of our premium essential oil blends is that they come with a full sheet of instructions on exactly how to use the essential oil blends to aid you in the best and safest way possible so you can feel confident in using these essential oils to help you win the battle with the germ.

The best way when trying to get over being sick you will want to focus on three main areas: throat, lungs, and your immune system. To do this, we have three main immune boosting blends with their variations for age-appropriate persons using the oils.

Really, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3

FIRST is the age appropriate Throat Care blend that was formulated with all of the best essential oils to assist the body in killing off pathogens in the throat and to help ease coughing. We give you seven different ways you can use this blend on the instruction sheet, to stop the illness in the throat where it gains strength. You can combine several of the different uses at the same time to give an extra shot of knockout power. Some people have completely avoided getting sick by using this oil early on in the invasion process.  We have a KIDS Throat Care blend and the adult version simply called Throat Care blend.

Kids Throat Care 8-10-16

SECOND, use the age appropriate Immune blend of essential oil. The Immune blends were created using all of the best essential oils to assist, boost, and strengthen your immune system. Of course, we also have age appropriate Immune blends. We have BABY Immune, KIDS Immune, Immune, and MEGA Immune. The nice thing about the Kid’s Immune and Immune is they are both safe to use daily as a preventative. This is great if you are around people you know are going to be sick or sending your kids into an environment where they will be susceptible to germs. For a preventative, you can put it on the soles of the feet in the morning before heading out, but that’s all in the instruction sheet of how to use these powerful immune boosting blends.

THIRD, if you feel that germ and its infestation have moved to your nose, throat, or lungs you will want to add the age appropriate Respiratory essential oil blend to the fight. The best application for this blend is to get those powerful aromatic molecules up into the air and breath those molecules all the way from your nose, down your throat and deep into your lungs. This will take 5-10 minutes breathing this oil from a diffuser. All of the best oils to get the garbage out, fight the germ, open you up, and boost your immune system are in this Respiratory blend. Again, because we here at Purify Skin Therapy practice safe and age appropriate aromatherapy, we have the KIDS Respiratory blend and the adult Respiratory blend.

Headaches No More

ache2

OH, MY HEAD!

Have you ever experienced that dull ache or even worse that mind blowing throbbing that won’t stop? The pain is real and you can’t wait for it to go away. We want you to be aware of some different holistic ways you can tackle these painful and even debilitating headaches.

Many are unaware that a mild headache can be your body telling you that you’re dehydrated. That’s right, in the afternoon when you experience a mild headache the root cause may be you need a big old fashion drink of WATER. Especially children who are experiencing headaches, this may be all they need. We have often had kids complain about headaches while at school and ask if they got a drink of water, and 100% of the time it is NO. So, remember to stay hydrated.

glass-water

People experience headaches that can be caused by a variety of reasons like tight muscles, tired eyes, lack of sleep, tension, emotions, hormones, whining people, or just life. For these headaches, you will want to consider a blend of oils formulated for just this situation. We have the perfect blend called Headache Relief Serum. formulated for you by a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist.  It is made from only USDA certified organic premium therapeutic grade essential oils, and that is why it works SO GOOD. 

Headache USDA

Purify Skin Therapy’s Headache Relief Serum works on any kind of headache: cluster headaches, stress headaches, tension headaches, migraines, etc. Application is so easy because it comes in a handy roller bottle that you simply roll the oil blend around your hairline. Yes, roll it around your hairline by starting at the forehead and rolling down to the sideburn, over the ear, around the back of the neck, up over the other ear, around the sideburn, and back up to where you started. You can then gently massage the oils up into your hair and scalp. Careful at this point not to get these oils into your eyes, you will want to wash your hands. Almost immediately you will feel it working with a cooling, tingly sensation, and within minutes your headache is melting away.

Headache Relief Serum is good for more than just headaches and migraines! Because there’s a lot of organic Peppermint in this blend, it can be stimulating. It can be used to “wake you up” if you are getting drowsy in the morning, afternoon, driving, in a class, church, or any other time you want to be awake and alert.

More severe headaches can be the result of hormones or chemicals in the body. Many experience migraine headaches as a result of these conditions. We have an oil that will greatly help with the headache of this kind called Clary Sage.

Clary Sage USDA

The application is to place 2-3 drops on a cotton ball and breathe deeply for 5-10 minutes as soon as you feel it coming on. We have even had people put 2 drops on half the cotton ball and shove it right up each nostril to breathe. This gently helps with the hormones and can calm that severe headache. This can also be combined with the Headache Relief Serum at the same time applying it in the halo described above.

As with trying to assist our body in being healthy and strong, consider what you are putting in your body as well as what you are putting on it. Use only USDA certified organic essential oils to guarantee you’re getting the cleanest oils with no toxic residues.

Diffusers 101

What Everyone Should Know About DIFFUSERS

Image4

Diffusion is one of the best applications when it comes to using essential oils. How do you tell which of the hundred diffusers available is the one you want. We want to help you see some of the options and look at the pros and cons to different types of diffusers. Remember that when you are diffusing essential oils your objective is to get those tiny aromatic molecules up into the air so that you can breathe them in and get them into your sinuses, throat and lungs to aid your body. Cost is always a factor, but you also want to consider the benefits when making your decision. Diffusion is the safest way to use essential oils and is one of the most effective uses of your oils.

One of the easiest ways to diffuse the oils that has no cost is simply placing a few drops in the palm of your hand and rubbing your hands together. Once you do this, cup your hands over your nose and breath in through your nose. Take your hands away after inhaling and close them so the oils stay and exhale through your mouth. Continue this process until the oil is gone. This application is best for occasional use or for emergency relief of respiratory constriction and allergies. If you have ever done this you know that very quickly the smell will change and go away quickly. This is because your hands are also absorbing the oils. The main drawback to this method of inhalation is that you will have to continue to reapply the oil to your hands and repeat to get enough into your system and you would have to use too much straight oil on your skin, not recommended.

url2

The next applicator you want to consider is a cotton ball. Placing one to two drops on a cotton ball allows you to get those molecules into your system. Being on the cotton ball allows the oils to stay there and not be absorbed into your hands. Keeping the cotton ball in a zip lock bag allows you to continue to breathe off the cotton ball throughout the day as needed. A good application would be to breathe deeply for 5-10 minutes or until your body says to stop (listen to your body, it will let you know that you have had enough). The cotton ball will hold the oils enough to be effective for one day if you follow this application. This is very economical and easy to do.

Another applicator using this same concept is aromatherapy jewelry. You place a drop or two of oil on the aroma ball and enjoy the oil throughout the day. It will last a day giving you the benefits of the oil. Some companies have used this same concept of placing a pad in a cover that can be placed in your car or other convenient locations. These can all be economical and extremely useful. The amount of oil you get throughout the day will be relatively small. This is very helpful with oils that are being used to aid emotions. You will need more if you are treating illness.

The next jump up in diffusers would be very common models that combine water with your oils to get them into the air. Some of these are very beautiful in their design and features. These can be very quiet and you can see the vapor coming out. Remember that most of that vapor is water with a hint of oils. This is very cost effective and can give a room a nice hint of the oils you are using. Consider when using this type of diffuser that when you combine water and oil they do not combine, they repel. They do interact with each other and they are deteriorating your essential oil exponentially. If you are using this type you will likely need to rinse out  the diffuser at the end of each day. This type is again great to get constant small doses assisting with emotions, but these types of diffusers don’t put out enough oil to really be beneficial when you have an illness.

The last diffuser type would be a nebulizing diffuser. This type of diffuser does not combine the essential oils with water, but instead uses the essential oils straight. It has a motor that pulls the oil up and throws it into the air in a very fine mist without ever heating the oils. Consider what we said in the beginning that our objective is to get those tiny molecules up into the air. This method is the best when dealing with illness because of its ability to get more essential oils into the air where you can breathe them into your lungs. Those molecules are released into the air and are then able to be inhaled directly into the respiratory system. These diffusers often have timers of run and rest options and you can control the output. Many have expressed concern that you will “burn through your oils”. Yes if you just let it run it will waste oil. We would suggest sitting with the diffuser in very close proximity to you and breathing deeply for 5-10 minutes or until your body says you have had enough. Then turn the machine off until the next application. When you have an illness, doing this three to five times a day is incredibly beneficial, and little oil is wasted with this method. Because it is throwing straight essential oil into the air you can very quickly smell the strong smell of the oil in a larger area. This is the best diffuser when trying to “clean and disinfect” the air and room with oils. The drawback of this type is the motor has a soft humming sound and they are more expensive than all the other styles.

Image11

Please consider what you are trying to accomplish when diffusing. When you realize what you are trying to do the type of diffuser should become very evident. A caution is that any diffuser that “heats” the oil to get the molecules out need to be avoided because it deteriorates and alters the oil.

Purify Skin Therapy offers you the highest quality nebulizing diffuser on the market. It is a more expensive investment, but it is so worth it! Our diffuser comes with a LIFETIME guarantee AND a FREE bottle of our Respiratory Blend, one of the best essential oils to diffuse. Click here to read more about what it comes with.

10 Reasons Why You Should Have A High-Quality Nebulizing Diffuser In Your Home

1. Relaxation, Stress Relief, and Sleep

One of the best and most well-known uses for essential oils is their ability to help you unwind at the end of a hard day. While there are several other methods for getting your soothing oils from the bottle into your blood stream where they start to work their magic, the diffuser is by far the easiest and longest-lasting of them all. Keep one at the office to help you relax on your lunch break. Have a diffuser ready to go with the push of a button when you get home from work in the evening. Set one on the bedside table to help your mind and body relax so you can sleep better at night.

2. Elevating and Uplifting

Just as a diffuser can help you to de-stress, they can also be used to create an energizing uplifting, elevated mood. This is not only great for when you’re feeling sad or depressed. You can use your diffuser to inspire high spirits during the holidays, to set a positive atmosphere for business meetings and social gatherings, to help you get moving on a slow morning, or even to create a romantic atmosphere for that special someone in your life.

3. Annihilate Illness

Using a diffuser in your home or office is a great way to keep cold, flu, and other nasty illnesses at bay. Many essential oils are powerfully anti-viral and anti-microbial and when introduced into the air in micro-vapor form, the organic compounds within the oils come into direct contact with airborne pathogens before they can invade your body. Essential oils can also be used to boost and support the immune system.

4. Breathe Easier

Essential oils are great for reducing inflammation and congestion in clogged airways to help you breathe more easily. If you are prone to allergies or other breathing disorders, try diffusing essential oils in the room (or rooms) of your home where you spend the most time. Just remember to keep a box of tissues handy as your nose and sinuses begin to open so you can also avoid that mad dash to the bathroom!

5. Pain Relief

While most people will tell you to apply essential oils directly to the body for pain relief, you can also use a diffuser to extend their effects. This method is an excellent way to combat persistent pain such as that caused by headaches, sore joints, and overworked muscles.

6. Improve Healthy Brain Function

Using essential oils in a diffuser is a highly-effective way to super-charge your brain cells. This effect works on multiple levels. First, many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities – meaning that they are soothing when you’re stressed, but they can also give you a pick-me-up when you’re feeling down or sluggish. By leveling out your mood, the oils in the air will help you to focus. Also, there are several essential oils which are known for their powerful ability to balance the body’s hormones. With regular use, these oils can actually help to heal the underlying causes responsible for hampering cognitive function.

7. Safer Alternative to Candles, Incense, and Synthetic Plug-Ins

If you have pets or small children, burning candles or incense can be a potentially hazardous practice. Plug-In air fresheners introduce dangerous and highly toxic synthetic chemicals into the room which mess with your body’s normal  functions! You definitely don’t want those synthetic, toxic chemicals or their harmful effects. With an essential oil diffuser, you can reap the healing holistic benefits of aromatherapy with no worries of toxins – when you diffuse Purify’s USDA certified organic essential oils.

8. Repel Insects and Rodents

Whether your problem is mosquitoes, house flies, fruit flies or moths, you can use essential oils in your diffuser to deter these critters from entering your home. Rodents aren’t fond of essential oils either…especially peppermint.

9. Keeps You Cool

(While it might make you appear more eco-savvy to your friends and family, that’s not the kind of ‘cool’ we’re referring to.)

In the heat of the summer months, running the air conditioner all day and all night is a surefire way to send your electric bill through the roof. Instead, try diffusing your favorite crisp, cooling minty essential oils in the rooms where you spend the most time to help you beat the heat.

10. Saves Money

So far we’ve covered the top nine reasons that owning a diffuser is an investment in your health and well-being, but it’s more than just that. With all of the versatile uses for essential oil diffusers around the home which ultimately lead to less doctor visits, lower electric bills, fewer cups of coffee, and better productivity; you will soon discover that this handy little device is a money-saver as well!

Lemon Essential Oil: WARNING! What You Need to Know

Did you know that your Lemon (and all other citrus essential oils) must be USDA certified organic or you shouldn’t use it?

It is critical to:

ONLY USE CERTIFIED ORGANIC CITRUS ESSENTIAL OILS!

lemon square111

WHY?…because when citrus trees are sprayed with the pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and chemical fertilizers in conventional farming,really organic2 those toxic and poisonous residues that are left on the peel – 100% of those poisons go straight into that NON organic essential oil!

Don’t be fooled into using lower grade, toxin laced NON organic citrus oils. Make absolutely sure the USDA certified organic symbol is on your bottles of Lemon (and all other citrus essential oils). If the USDA certified organic symbol is NOT on your citrus oil bottles – then do not use that oil on or in your body.

“You must obtain an organic certification for citrus oils if they are to be used internally at all.”
-Dr. Jean Valnet, French Medical Doctor, World Famous Aromatherapist

“Organic plants are grown without the use of chemicals. When taking oils internally, it is important to use only those of certified organic quality.”
-Shirley Price, English Aromatherapist

“Many aromatic plants are grown with pesticides. Pesticides can cause a reaction that has nothing to do with the essential oil. Expressed essential oils from citrus plants are most likely to have high levels of pesticides, so always use organic citrus peel oils.”
-Jane Buckle, Registered Nurse and Aromatherapist.”

Organic oils are obviously the best because of the complete absence of unwanted chemicals such as pesticides or artificial fertilizers.
-Shirley Price, English Aromatherapist

What does certified organic Lemon Essential Oil do? It works a LOT better than NON organic lemon oil, to be sure! To watch a video all about what Lemon essential oil can do click here.

Bathe Like You’ve Never Bathed Before!

relaxing-bath_400x300

Oh how I love to soak in the tub!

So relaxing and pampering. A good soak is seriously my favorite thing, especially in the fall when the weather starts to get chilly.

When I was younger I used to love bubbles in the tub, but now I have something SO much better….ESSENTIAL OILS!

10 TOP pack USDA clearwith USDA

Using essential oils in your bath exponentially increases the benefits. You get the health and healing benefits of the oils you use and you get the emotional, energetic, and spiritual benefits of the oils. Trust me, if you haven’t bathed with fine essential oils, you have yet to truly experience the bathing process!

Over the years I have tried many different combinations of oils in my tub. About 10 years ago I created a mix that to this day I simply cannot get over! It is by far my favorite smell of oils when it comes to my bath, and I never get sick of it, in fact, I crave it all the time!

It’s this blend that I’d like to share with you. It’s fairly simple and straightforward, but OH THE SMELL is so heavenly! It really only uses 3 essential oils:

Rosemary

Rosemary USDARosemary is stimulating for the brain, supports healthy brain function, boosts the immune system, relieves headaches, relieves muscle aches and pains, it brings you up and makes you feel happy if you’re down and blue, and the ancients used Rosemary to drive away evil spirits and attract good helping and blessing angels into their homes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eucalyptus radiata

Eucalyptus radiata is one of the more gentle and yet lovely floral eucalyptus oils. Simply a dynamite eucalyptus smell! It’s incredibly good for the immune system, great for the skin, opens up the respiratory system and boosts the function of the respiratory system, brings down fevers, anciently used for epidemics, it’s highly antiseptic which means it kills pathogens, relieves muscle pain and tension, wound healing, okay…what doesn’t eucalyptus radiata oil do???

EucalyptusUSDA

German Chamomile

German Chamomile is the beautiful dark blue, almost inky chamomile that has a deep, earthy apple/herbaceous smell. Chamomile, GermanGerman Chamomile is my favorite, and it too is good for just about anything. It’s a wound healing agent, boosts and supports the immune system, phenomenal for the skin, Chamomile is a calming, soothing oil that will help all your stress simply melt away.

 

Okay, I could go on and on…but you can see, all three of these oils are good by themselves, but when you put them together they create a smell that is nothing short of heavenly. It’s such a healing smell, and relaxing…it’s just hard to describe…but it is something you really should experience.

So I created a blend for you! I call it (wait for it……!!!!!)  

BATHING OIL

Bathing Oil 8-10-16

This is the perfect combination of these three amazing oils, created just for you, so you only have to buy one bottle. It comes with instructions on how to use it, but basically, you just mix about 10 drops of this BATHING OIL blend into a good natural mineral sea salt – I prefer the Dead Sea Mineral Sea Salt we import from the mineral-rich southern shore of the Dead Sea in Israel.  Mix that together really well and then add that fragrant mix to your warm bath water. It’s just that simple to get all those amazing benefits! ENJOY!

Oh, and I have to tell you quite possibly the best thing about this blend. It’s almost 1/3 of pure German Chamomile, an oil that by itself costs $70 (yes, it’s an expensive but very useful oil!). So this blend should be upwards of $35, BUT I have kept the BATHING OIL at only $19.95. I have had many people in my business tell me that I must raise the price of this oil blend because I’m losing money on it, but I won’t do it. I want everyone to be able to experience this amazing blend and all its benefits, and at a really great price,  — and it’s my favorite smell — so it’s pretty much my gift to you! (You’re welcome! 😉 )

Bathe before bedtime and sleep better, completely safe for your kids too. There are also many other ways you can use this oil blend. Because it’s 100% pure essential oils (and high-grade ones at that!) you can use it on the soles of your feet as an immune booster, you can diffuse it, the uses are endless.

Bathe like you mean it my Friends!

~Holly
