Healthy with essential oils

Paullene Caraher

The next oil sharing will be on February 7, the first Wednesday, from 1:00-2:00 p.m.

We will be making a blend for digestion problems. As we age, we find we cannot easily digest certain foods. Sometimes the food is too rich, too coarse or maybe we cannot chew as well as we did when we were younger. Oils are made from herbs, and this special blend will help the body to get back to normal.

You can make the blend or just come and listen; it is free! If you want to make a roll-on vial, RSVP and bring your $15 for the vial.

The January meeting was energetic. We had a full house with 25 people attending. Carol Dupre won the door prize which was a diffuser. One puts water and your favorite oil, and the aroma is kind of misted around the house or office. Some put in oregano to clear the house of germs; others use lavender in the bedroom for better sleep.

Shelley will bring the tested recipe, oils and vials. We use Young Living Oils. The Young Living Company calls their process Seed to Seal because all aspects of growing the plants and distilling the oils are under the auspices of Young Living. The company owns their own fields and processing plants and partners with other countries to find the best soils, growing conditions, plants and herbs for the oils. So, in our opinion, these oils can be trusted.

The sharing is in the SunBird Golf Resort located at 6250 SunBird Blvd., Chandler, AZ 85249, on the third floor in the Navajo Room. When you enter the clubhouse, you are on the second floor.
