I love getting my hands dirty in our yard. We have a lot of yard, so it is a lot of dirt and a lot of work! I often get on a roll and keep working as long as possible but that means I end up with a horribly sore lower back and tons of bug bites and a hand that I can barely un-fist from all of the weed pulling and pains in the most random spots from squatting and lifting and pulling. Who needs a gym membership when you have a big yard, can I get an amen??
After I come inside and drink a huge glass of water with a couple of drops of Wild Orange oil, I prep myself for my post-yard work essential oil routine.
Deep Blue oil and rub: ahhhhh just thinking about it makes my muscles relax. This is comparable to an icy/hot situation that you can get at the pharmacy but it is so so so much better because it is all natural! It is a delicious smelling soothing balm to my sore and achy body. This has a blend of wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, blue Chamomile, helichrysum and osmanthus. It comes in an oil or rub. I use the oil straight on the most painful spots like my hand or wrist and use the lotion for a larger area like my low back.
Frankincense + Marjoram: These two oils together are magical for relieving the pain deep inside that I can’t reach with my Deep Blue oil. I put a few drops of each into an empty veggie cap and take them internally and the relief is almost instant. Frankincense is the most power anti-inflammatory oil that you can get. Marjoram works to relax muscles and eliminate spasms.
Purify: this blend works for those pesky bug bites behind the knee, on the ankle, everywhere that can just drive me crazy. This blend is made up of lemon, lime, pine, citronella, melaleuca (tea tree oil) and cilantro. These oils work together to clean your skin and help pull out the toxins from the bug bite and almost instantly take the sting and itch away. I also use lavender oil as well if it needs extra oil lovin’.
