Just making some salve today because I am out and I seriously use it for everything. Its my lotion, deodorant, anti-aging cream, healing stick, diaper ointment, chapstick, headache relief, the list is long. What makes it so special is this coconut oil
I have tried other great coconut oils but this is my favorite and now I can’t go back to the other ones I was using. Each coconut that these organic, family farmers use are handpicked so only the best are used. It has a different taste than any other oils I have had, but I like it, it tastes less processed for some reason. I also put it in or on my food whenever I can. I give my kids a tablespoon a day, on a spoon or in their smoothies and they don’t have a hard time taking it. I know you know how great
coconut oil is for you so I won’t go into that but each oil is processed so differently and in my opinion this is the best I have found! Gold Label Coconut Oil is made by a very unique process. Most other brands of organic coconut oils have been cold expeller pressed in a machine that squeezes the oil from the coconut while controlling the temperature so it doesn’t heat up and “cook” the oil. The Gold Label coconut oil is made by hand. This is from the Tropical Traditions website:
“The fresh coconut meat is shredded (wet milled), and then cold-pressed using the water from inside the coconuts to make coconut milk. The milk is then allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water. The oil is then filtered from the curds (coconut solids)
If you have been wanting to try coconut oil but don’t know where to start, I recommend Tropic Traditions!
Oh man, Flu season. This year it has people practically running for the hills. I myself am considering taking my kids out of school for the worst part of it! (which hasn’t even hit yet!) A few things that our family has been doing is OnGuard and Oregano from DoTERRA, children’s pro-biotics, Emergency C packs, cod liver oil and starting tonight, honey and garlic which my 7 & 5 year old actually LIKE! I know it sounds like alot but it really isn’t if you spread it out throughout the whole day. I diffuse the OnGuard in my diffuser, rub it on the kids feet at night, give them a Vit C packet in the morning, pro-biotics and cod liver oil after lunch and then the honey and garlic before they brush for bedtime. And I take the OnGuard and Oregano in capsule since Oregano is so strong. So far we haven’t gotten any colds or the flu this year and we are hoping to keep it that way.
The reason we use On Guard is because it is known as the “Protective Blend” to ward off infection, viruses, bacteria and mold. Even more impressive is that multiple medical studies have been done with DoTerra’s essential oil On Guard that PROVED On Guard killed MRSA, and H1N1. Now even Vanderbilt hospital emergency department uses Doterra’s Essential Oils because of what they can do.
Oregano oil is often described as one of the strongest known anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation with nearly the power of morphine as a painkiller as well as used for respiratory ailments such as colds, flu, sore throat, asthma, bronchitis. It can also relieve congestion, loosen phlegm, and quiet coughs. Because of its strong antibacterial, antiseptic, and antiviral properties, it is often used for candidacies and fungal infections i.e. yeast overgrowth. And has been demonstrated to be 99% effective at reducing airborne bacteria. Since it is so potent it is recommended to be diluted with a carrier oil if applied topically or internally. It is most effective if taken internally via a gelatin capsule
So the best results come from taking 3 drops each in a capsule 4x daily. Normally, I only do it 2x a day, but now since flu season is upon us I will try bump it up to 3-4 times a day. It seems like alot but I would rather do that than go get a shot or be sick in bed for 8+ days!
It seems like I am doing more and more posts on the oils from DoTerra and that is because THEY WORK! I have noticed people are so skeptical about using natural products found from nature and I am not sure why. I know it is probably easier just to go to a doctor who knows what prescription drug to give out and then just go pick it up and take it, no questions asked. But recent evidence shows that they are not working as effectively against common infections anymore and can have serious side effects. I urge you to try something different and take control of your own healing and health, it is not as daunting as it seems if you start with these oils because you will notice a difference and be pleasantly surprised. If you have ANY questions or comments, please let me know, I would LOVE to help you!
