(The Help Me Oil Newsletter)
As we finish out the summer and head towards fall, let’s make sure our bodies are well-equipped to handle that transition. It’s oftentime during these cooler months that our bodies fall below the wellness line. Here are a few healthy habits you can adopt to help boost your immune system naturally.
- Eat more raw fruits and green vegetables.
- Get outside and enjoy some fresh air and sun.
- Get adequate amounts of sleep.
- Limit processed sugars.
- Increase water intake.
- Get quality vitamins, minerals, and pre- and probiotics daily.
Speaking of good-quality supplements, be proactive & stock up on these fall must-haves…

When: Thursday September 30: 6:30 - 8:30 (Please be on time)
Cost: Chat is free! Bracelets are $6 each. Mask sprays are $3 each
The September Oils chat will be similar to the August chat. We will start promptly at 6:30 and we'll devote about 45 to 60 minutes to learn anything you want about our oils, CBD, personal care, cleaning or supplement lines. Got oils you have no idea how to use? Take them with! I'll teach you whatever you need, and we can also learn from each other! After the chat, you can stay and make bracelets and/or mask sprays. You know - because those dreaded things are not going away any time soon..... so if you have to wear one, why not enhance that experience! Life is tough right now, so wearing a diffuser bracelet for your favorite oils will make each day just a little sweeter!
KEEP THESE FUTURE DATES IN MIND: October 21, Elderberry workshop. October 28: Oils Chat (last one of the year). November 18 and 19: Make and take! (More info in next months' newsletter. Dates subject to change)
Did you know? Young Living has an entire line of essential oils that are safe for ingestion called the Vitality Line. They are the exact same oil as the “regular” bottle, just a different label - to help you know which ones are safe to ingest. Not only are they backed by Young Living’s Seed to Seal quality commitment, they are all non-GMO certified. If you don’t like swallowing capsules, you can try them in drinks, yogurts, smoothies, etc. Check them out!
These are such an incredible new way to use essential oils! An Aroma Ring is a soft silicone ring that fits comfortably on your nose or on your ear to deliver persistent aromatherapy for up to 6 hours. They currently come in two scents - Lavender and AromaEase. Lavender’s fresh, floral aroma provides balancing properties that help calm the mind and body, fight occasional nervous tension, and bring feelings of peaceful relaxation. AromaEase combines the aromas of Peppermint, Spearmint, Ginger, Cardamom, and Fennel into a breath of minty refreshment and rejuvenation. These would be perfect to wear under a mask (if you wear one) or even just during your regular everyday activities.

That's it for this months' tips and recipes. As we head into fall, my prayer for all of us is that we not only do our best to succeed at wellness, but that we somehow learn to live together even though we are not all in agreement on, well, anything. We NEVER agreed on everything, but our society now can't seem to handle it, and is like a parched forest in a lightning storm right now. Compassion for differences and prayers for patience is key. Receiving this kind of peace is not only critical for living amongst each other, but it's also critical for health. It's ok to feel passionately about your truth, but it's never ok to disagree in anger and hate.
Gardening Tips in just in time for....Mums? Well if you are like me, you are still out in the yard daily, so this will still come in handy. Bookmark this post or save the images so you'll have it ready next Spring as well! Using "plant based" on plants is the way to go!
This may be a bit of a repeat if you follow me on Facebook in my private customer's group, or on my public group Essential Oil Online Classes, on Instagram, or on Telegram, but there are a few extra tips in here as well! I do all of these methods on some of my classes in a way to cover everyone's preferences. To teach you all I have to reach you all 🤣
Here is a tip you have not heard recently: Save the water your next batch of produce that you cleaned with the Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak. (if you soaked in a bucket) Then pour it over anything in the garden! It helps with bugs and its a great "meal" for those plants!
It’s no secret that bugs can totally ruin your garden plans. From eating your plants to taking a bite out of you, they can really dampen any gardening dreams!
You could use insecticides or sprays made from harsh chemicals, but certainly at a cost to you and the environment. They can lead to bioaccumulation of toxins in your body (and even in your plants) that are linked to chronic illness and disease!
So besides the tip above, here are few DIY ideas to try!
Some bugs are the kind you WANT in your garden. Here are a few oils to ATTRACT what you need.
But what about things that like to dig up your garden? Such as your dog, cat, or squirrels etc. We want to keep them at bay without harming them, so here is a trick:
If you’ve been around the garden scene a while you’ve heard of companion planting. And if you haven’t heard, let me enlighten you!
Some plants play well together; others do not. This is because every plant has certain nutrients that it uses from the soil for growth and fruit production. Also, plants excrete certain byproducts back into the soil that can either help or hinder your harvest!
If you grow two types of plants next to each other that both rely strongly on nitrogen for growth, they will compete and overuse the nitrogen in the soil and starve each other out! Corn and tomatoes are an example of plants that don’t play nice.
Conversely, if you plant two types of plants next to each other that eat different nutrients they will work together to promote each other’s growth. A good example of this is tomatoes and carrots. They work together in the soil. Therefore, plant them next to each other and it will result in a more bountiful harvest.
So what does this have to do with essential oils? Well, essential oils are made from plants so consider using oils in place of your companion plants. For example, if you are looking to plant Lavender next to Green Beans, grab your Lavender essential oil instead. Create a “Companion Spray” to use on the soil and leaves of the plant using this guide. Add 10-15 drops of the corresponding essential oil to a 4 oz. glass spray bottle. Top with distilled water; shake before each use. So easy!
Did you know that some plants self-pollinate? Fruits like peppers can stand alone and produce fruit. Not every plant does that. Lots of them need the help of cross-pollination between male and female plants!
Know who helps with that?! POLLINATORS!
Bees and butterflies are some of the friendliest insects you can get into your garden! Without them you’ll have measly harvests and be disappointed that all your hard work didn’t result in the delicious produce you wanted!
Pollinators are attracted to the smell of flowers and luckily some of our wonderful essential oils are distilled from flowers… so convenient!
Create a spray using essential oils to spritz on the flowering buds of your garden to encourage pollinators to come in and get the job done!
WEEDS and FUNGUS:
Ahh weeds.... at least you are good for helping us exercise! And as temping as perhaps grabbing the Round-Up may be, you know deep down inside that you really don't want to breathe that in, get it on your fingers or toes, or on your pets. You finally get MOST of those things under control, and then you notice that some plants that you over-watered and under-sunned and somehow got a plant fungus. Here are a few tips! I like to add vinegar to the weed recipes. Just be careful when using around your grass when using vinegar:
TIME TO HARVEST!
Your work is done, and now it's time to enjoy some of the fruits (or flowers) of your labors!
If you don't own our exceptional Fruit and Veggie Soak, why not make your own?
Aren't oils fun? I love all of the uses! Let me know how all of these ideas work out for you! Before I sign off, here are a few last minute ideas for you! Labels for these sprays, and a Chicken Cook spray for those that raise chickens for organic cage free eggs 🐣

And did you know?
Lemon Vitality: Supports your digestive, immune and respiratory systems.
Lavender Vitality: Supports the cardiovascular and nervous system.
Because our bodies cannot manufacture vitamin C, we can benefit by consuming this powerful antioxidant daily. Conveniently, this one comes in a tablet and a chewable. The tablet is great for adults and older kids that can swallow pills. The chewable could be used for the younger kiddos, especially with the upcoming school year. Each one has their own unique amount of vitamin C - the tablet contains 1440% of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin C per serving and the chewable contains 170% DV per tablet. The ingredients in Super C play a role in normal immune and circulatory functions, help to strengthen connective tissues, and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.
