Using essential oils on elderly or more mature user

Hi folks!

From many of my blog posts, many of you would notice, i often posted a lot about using essential oils as it has becomes part of my lifestyle; and i have becoming officially an "oiler", the common term used for people who use essential oils (eo) in their daily life to support their wellness.

Ever since the first time, i applied the oils for my son after he was discharged from the hospital at five months old due to respiratory conditions, i have been very eager to learn more about how these natural therapeutic oils from plants created by the Creator from above could help in the wellness of my entire family. And i chose Young Living for their Seed to Seal process; as I only want the best and purest brand to be used for my family. I have bought other brands previously but truly gasp at the ingredients listed which has very little percentage of essential oils and majority contains of alcohol and even sugar cane!!

I bought books on eo, attended eo talks, learning from many hard-core oilers and even registered for intensive course organised by Center of Aromatherapy Research and Education. Yep, i love learning and sharing what i have learnt and implemented! 

During the last 2017 YL Summit, where there are 14 days and more than 6 free topics each day shared by very well-respected speakers in the world of essential oils.

I love learning and gaining new insights from all these experienced and awesome speakers and i try to make time for it despite my busy schedule. Albeit, i only managed to catch a few while i was driving, eating my meal, doing my housework. Learning enriches my life...and all these will come in handy when times need it.

Being a mom of 3 and a daughter as well...besides being very passionate on all things children, one topic which really stood out to me is topic on elderly as i see how my own mom has been aging a lot, so is my mother-in-law and in general many of the people who used to care for me. They are all progressing into the "senior" citizen" group and experiencing changes, both physically and mentally.

Last weekend, i was performing raindrop massage for my close friend's father who is half-paralyzed on his left side from stroke. As i apply the oils for him (a shy yet independent uncle), it reminded me of my own grandfather who has passed away. I am glad to hear that his pain is gone after the raindrop session and he asked if i could massage his left hand too, and i gladly do it for him. I felt really glad and grateful to be able to provide some relief for this uncle.

So, here's a post both for my own reminder as well as to share with all of you out there who are keen to learn about the Dos and Don'ts when using essential oils on elderly folks (in general above age of 50). Bear in mind, everyone is different, some folks might be veteran oilers (like the uncle i mentioned above who is blessed with a very filial daughter who provided him with all the oils to support his health) which are pretty fine using it as per normal user.

Also, i managed to screen capture one of the crucial topics both to elderly men and women on hormonal support shared by by Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton who is a Chiropractor by trade.

Now, here are the six keypoints i managed to capture.
EO for Mature and Older User (>50) by Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton, a Chiropractor

  1. For older folks, their skin is thinner- dilute the eo and be caution in using hot oils (i felt we can apply the same principles we used for children when we are applying oils for very elderly folks)
  2. Support the gut as less enzyme are produced in their gut ( eo like Digize, Peppermint, Thieves, AromaEase came into my mind) Dr. Bob shared about using Peppermint, Digize and YL supplement like Life 9 for probiotics 
  3. Blood sugar support- Slique tea, ecotea are great choices for this
  4. Circulation - as older folks are not moving that well compared to their younger self; thus if we can make them able to move better, thus improve their blood circulation)
    Movement is key; movement is Life. Stay active by using the products like:
    Frankincense - circulation, skin
    OrthoSport - before activity; use on joints and muscles
    Ningxia Red- anti-oxidant; blood flows easily and thus the cells no need to work too hard
    Surfurzyme - great for liver support
  5. Hormonal balancing for older folks
    Valor- very helpful for men to help them staying grounded and balanced (i.e.,less grumpy)
    DHEA is very important to help other hormones work and being distributed properly

    Other oils that support hormonal health for both men and women:

  6. Bones, Muscles and Joint
    Frankincense, Deep Relief (support muscle), Copaiba(structure) , wintergreen (joint support)
Go slow, be consistent, use the oil daily. Incorporate as a healthy lifestyle. May this brings much agility, hope, health and fun for elderly folks. And all of us(with blessings from above) would be walking on this "senior citizen" path someday too!

Contact me or leave me a message if you like to learn more about Young Living essential oils. I am more than happy to share with you. You can also easily purchase the oils at wholesale price from here.

Thank you for reading and sharing my journey in using essential oils for wellness. May you received abundance blessings and good health daily too!

My trusty aid to calm a child and continue to have fun

Hi folks! 

I would like to share this incident happened quite sometime back and it happened again recently which I thought it might benefit others so I like to share it here.

Once, I brought my kids, my in-laws as well as my niece and nephew to go cycling at Tmn. Tasik Titiwangsa. Out of a sudden, barely 10 minutes we arrived, my niece complained of tummy upset. Then my mil quickly asked me to apply my "oil" for her (as she often see how I used to apply essential oils for my children for all sorts of ailments). 

While Digize or Tummygize are the two best oil for tummy discomfort, I only carry Lavender eo with me (those who knows me would know I love and always carry around my eo first aid- lavender with me everywhere I go!). So I just make a prayer and apply on her tummy as well as her chest and let her inhale the remaining lavender eo on palm. Voila, the oil managed to calm her down and she no longer feels pain in her tummy and was able to continue having fun with the rest of her cousins ❤️

So tis incident further proves to me that eo with its high frequencies and lavender being eo with calming effects is my all-round first aid oil to have around! Yep, sometimes when we don't have the best "oil" for the situation, just say our prayer and make the best intention and trust the oil do its work.

And if you are wondering where I get my Young Living essential oil, you can actually get this from here.

Try to get the membership and buy it at wholesale price(it's more worth it!) rather than paying at retail price or buying elsewhere. You gained more than just wholesale will also get some promo and free oils from their loyalty plan. So it's killing two birds with one stone! 

As a mom of 3, I often look for best bargain to gain the most benefits of the money spent. So feel free to contact me if you wish to find out which if the promo items that worth to invest!

Cheers and have an awesome day!

Best travelling aid ever

Hi folks!

I just returned from a short trip from a country that has all sorts of yummy "fried" food. You can see fries 🍟, fried food and potatoes pretty much everywhere.

It's so easy to be overeating or indulge too much of these yummy but not too healthy food while travelling. My throat felt itchy after eating too many salt and pepper tofu(last trip was too much of pizza πŸ•)

Luckily i always carry around my small sachet of Young Living Lemon essential oil while I travel. It never fails πŸ‘ to sooth my itchy throat while traveling and getting over-heaty from the food I ate.

Reliving the love for Marvel's Spider-Man

Hi folks!

Which are the Marvel character you are most fond of or remember most now which your kids would most probably recognize as well if not a big FAN too? Oh yes, for mine is definitely Peter Parker, the Marvel's Spiderman! 

Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can...... (yes, now can you recall that catchy tune!)...

Now, good news for Spiderman's fan,he brand-new Marvel's Spider-Man animated series is set to premiere on Disney XD (Astro Channel 617) on October 14, Saturday, and available On Demand.

Peter Parker is a normal teenage boy who lives in Queens, New York with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. He is a shy boy, but highly intelligent and excels in science at his school, Horizon High. 

With the principal and found of Horizon High, Max Modell

No doubt this series will be a hit with my children as they certainly can relate better to this new series whereby the famous wall crawling superhero is a 15-year old schoolboy called Peter Parker. 

In this series, Disney XD brings Spider-Man closer to audiences in a series of comedic videos featuring Malaysian kids who imagine a world with their friendly neighborhood superhero.

In the series, after the death of his Uncle Ben, Peter devotes his life to honor his wise adage - “with great power comes great responsibility”...i love this quote and it is apt and great lessons for kids. Using his newfound abilities, he becomes Spider-Man by night, and vows to protect his family and friends from danger.

The series is filled with action, drama, humor and heart going back to the basic elements that we older fans would enjoy as Peter Parker gets schooled in the art of becoming the hero that audiences know and love as Marvel's Spider-Man.

From 1 October, fans can tune in to Disney XD and Disney Channel to enjoy the fun videos. It will also be available on Disney Channel Asia’s social media platforms (YouTube: Channel Asia; Facebook: Channel Asia).

Now, here is my little Marvel's Spider-Man fan, getting all ready to use their superhero power to accomplish their great responsibility! Now, are you getting excited to check out this new series too? Don't forget to tune in Disney XD Astro Channel 617 on 14 October folks!

Hope you have a spidey and spectacular weekend!

Making the switch

Hi folks!

I just can’t help falling in love with Thieves collection..

The first one I have fallen in love with is the Thieves essential oil which gives our immune system the extra boost, added to manuka honey, it just soothe my sore throat and ulcers.

Next, thanks to my friend who recommended the Thieves Household Cleaner. The first time I used it to mop the floor on CNY eve before my “balik kampung” a.k.a. back-to-hometown trip, 4 days later when i returned home, I am being welcome with the nice lemon and thieves smell once I opened the door..what a pleasant surprise and love at first “scent” for me

Subsequently, I went on to try the following Thieves series each month as I redeem them with my points:
  • Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier- great for travels with kids especially!), Thieves spray(my frequent aid-on-the-go) 
  • Thieves Laundry Soap- yey no more chemical smell on the clothes and bedsheet! 
  • Thieves Dental floss- my daughter’s recent addition to her dental care regime) 
  • Thieves Cleansing soap- it helps with my skin rashes and more economical for savvy momma, 
  • Thieves Dish Soap - friendly on my hands, I can finally wash my dishes without wearing gloves and safe for kids to help out too! 
and last but not least...the latest addition to My Thieves Try-out collection

Thieves Fruit and Veggie Spray- great for My On-the-go kitchen. Now I don’t have to worry when I am cooking and eating out without my Fruits and Vege cleaner

What’s more the best thing is, I got these for FREE!

How? ‘Cos YL rewards their members with generous PV points rebate(10%, 20% and 25%!) on top of their purchase of YL products at wholesale price. This is certainly another great incentives and great way to ditch the chemical laden products in my family and opt for a more friendly version

Does your local supermarket reward you with free gift of your choice for purchasing your household cleaning supplies? Are you thinking to ditch the chemical laden products at home and switch to a chemical free home for your family? Just give me a buzz if you are interested to find out how you can do so and be rewarded too! As a mom of 3, I often look for best bargain to gain the most benefits of the money spent. So feel free to contact me if you wish to find out which if the promo items that worth to invest!

Alternatively, you can also easily sign up online as member and enjoy the oils at wholesale price here.

Try to get the membership and buy it at wholesale price(it's more worth it!) rather than paying at retail price or buying elsewhere. You gained more than just wholesale will also get some promo and free oils from their loyalty plan. So it's killing two birds with one stone!

Folks, make the choice to live a chemical free home starting from the ones we used daily. Each chemical ditches is an awesome you can give to yourself and loved ones at home! Will you make the switch for the health of you and your family too?

Cheers and have a chemical free day!

Chemicals and Choices We make

Hi folks!

When I read about the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 in California requires that the Governor revise and republish at least once per year the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.  

Seriously, if we wonder how these days people are not as healthy as before despite the advancement in medical and healthcare. Does anyone realised how many types of chemicals we are exposing ourselves daily from the day we wake up, brush our teeth, clean our face, shower and drinking and eating from plastic made of BPA material, etc.

Check out our household products, skincare or even processed/junk food we have at home whether they appear in this Proposition 65 list of chemicals.

Time to take a close look and ditch the chemical that is adding the burden into our body detox system. Try to use glassware and not to reuse or even reheat the food in plastic containers. Reduce the dependent on canned and processed food and go for whole food as much as possible. Note: It's also a reminder to we can balance between health over convenience sake! Make the right choice!

Go now, take out the common toothpaste,  containers, or skincare and check on the list. How many can you identify:

Sadly, many medicines are also listed in the list.

Now can we do ourselves a favour by ditching the chemicals in our daily life and stay clean as much as we can to reduce the burden we are adding on to our body detox system?

I have since changed to use glassware more than plastic containers. It is cheaper in the long run πŸƒ 

Also, I have switched to chemical free toothpaste, skincare, laundry soap, washing detergents and trying to avoid the convenience products like canned and processed food.

Still got a lot to work on I must say as our family members are so used to all these food and products. But as a mom we must make the right choice for our family! Hopefully we are able to include more of the good and none of the bad starting from our home 🏠 

Cheers and have a chemical free life!
