Lavender Oil, a natural alternative to pesticides

Essential Oils For Things that Bug You Around the House
by David Stewart, Ph.D., R.A.

Among the many chemicals in our industrial environment that get into our systems and make us sick are the pesticides we use in our own homes. We use them because they are toxic to the creatures that bug us, but forgetting that they are also toxic to us.

Sometimes the toxicity is immediately apparent: we get a headache, get sick or feel nauseous from the fumes or other contact. Sometimes the toxicity is subtle and can accumulate resulting in chronic complaints and disorders (including allergies, cancer and miscarriages) that can be serious and even deadly overtime. Sometimes we even put poisons on our pets to deal with ticks and fleas, not realizing that these substances are not healthy for us nor our animals.

 

 

~^~How to Use Oils for Pest Control

As YLEO distributors, we don’t need poisons to kill pests. We
can repel them (and even sometimes kill them) with substances
that are not only harmless to us but are actually healthful
to us. To the right is a list of oils that will solve most of your
pest problems around the house.

And how do you use them? One way is to get a pistol-grip squirt
bottle. Mix a few drops of the oil with some water, shake it up,
and start firing. If you have bugs on your plants, like aphids on
your roses, you can squirt the leaves and drive the bugs away
with no harm to your plant. You can do the same with the other
pests. As for ants, you can smear a line of peppermint or
spearmint across your kitchen counter or floor and the ants
won’t cross it. If you already have a line of ants invading your
house, just draw a line of oil across them and they will turn back.
It is fun to watch. And as for flies, you can knock them dead
right out of the air with one shot from your pistol grip.

~^~A Brown Recluse Experiment

Seeing how squirting a peppermint-water spray would kill flies
in mid-air, I wondered what pure oil would do. So I did an
experiment on a brown recluse spider. I captured a live one in
a jar and carefully placed one drop of peppermint on one side.
The pure peppermint repelled the spider who crowded to the
otherside to avoid the oil. When I tipped the jar to force the
spider to fall into the oil, it merely squirmed and got away,
still repelled by the oil, but not apparently harmed. Then I put
a drop of water with the oil and tipped the jar so that the
spider slid into the water and oil together and, instantly, it
shrivled up died.

Conclusion: The oil alone is an insect repellant. Combined with
water, it is an insecticide.

~^~Safe Insect Repellants

As far as repellants go, when you go into the woods and fields,
put a little lavender around your ankles, wrists, and waist-band
and you won’t have to worry about chiggers or ticks (or Lyme
Disease of Rocky Mountain Spotted Tick Fever). Lemongrass,
sage or thyme would work, too, but might irritate your skin so
put it on your pant cuffs and shirt sleeves.

As for your pets, you can put oils such as Purification, around
their necks and backs, but watch to keep oils from around their
eyes.

So there you have it. Non-toxic pest control.

Essential Oils Bath Products: Thieves Soap

Theives oil and the Theives line of products continue to be one of the most popular categories offered by Young Living Essential Oils. The reason is the results people are experiencing with them. Personally, Theives oil, Immune Defense and Thieves cleaner (for everything including vegetables) are in the must have category.  In the colder months when colds and flu seem to be more prevalent, Thieves oil and cleaners are a great first line of defense. 

A question was raised in the  forum about Theives bar soap and it’s effectiveness as a facial soap.  Here are the answers: 

“I have two bars of Thieves soap in the bathroom.. One in the shower
and one at the washstand. Use both daily, no other facial cleanser seems needed.
.. I use the Thieves bar soap for everything. It is my morning 
face soap. I think it works great. I think it cleans really well…..
 I use either ART moisturizers or Sandlewood Face Moisturizer after
washing, so dryness has not been a problem at all. I would totally
recomend getting it. …. The Thieves bar lasts a good 3+ months for me.
I love the Thieves bar soap. ”

Essential Oils and Essential Oil Products For Shingles Part 2

Theives

I recently had shingles and used Thieves oil mixed 50/50 with V-6. It worked great! I had relief within 10 minutes. I never had any more pain with them after I used the Thieves one time and never had to take any of the pills or creams that are prescribed for shingles. By the time I went to the doctor to make sure that was what I had, they were already drying up.

Lavander and Oregano
Last year I came down with shingles and initially I used lavender to
cool down the “flame”. But it was oregano that helped the most!
Internally and externally.

Ravensara, Melaleuca and Lavender

The main thing new we did was to apply essential
oils directly to the Shingles. The main EO we used was Ravensara, but I
also remember using some Melaleuca and Lavender. The Shingles
were completely gone in about a week.

Oregano, Chamomile, Lavender, Bergamot, Geranium, Regenolone

About two months ago, I had severe pain in my lower left side for 2
days. Although the pain subsided, it left a numb feeling in my
side. I rarely visit the doctor, but had no idea what was going on
so I did. Much to my surprise, I was diagnosed of having early
stages of Shingles. I had one small rash about the size of a
quarter. I immediately mixed the #2 recipe in the EODR for Shingles
and begin to apply twice a day (10 drops R. Chamomile, 5 drops
lavender, 4 drops bergamot, and 2 drops geranium in V6 oil) the
itching was minimum and the following rashes were about a tenth the
size of the first one. I had about 5-6 spots in all. I read that
some people used Oregano, so when I ran out of #2 recipe, I tried
it. WOW did it burn, had to follow up with V6. Several days later
(from the dr. visit) the itching subsided and the rashes became sore
(similar to a bruise.) I started applying Regenolone a couple of
times a day. A week from the time that I was diagnosed; I had no
itching and no pain only the sores. I continued to use the
Regenolone for about another week to help heal the sores.

Essential Oil Blend Palo Santo For Bone Rejuvenation

The constituents in Palo Santo are similar to Sandalwood. Having from 62 to
68% of limonene. Palo Santo has been reported to help with depression.

Using a combination of Palo Santo and Frankincense for pain and for bone rejuvenation (including Idaho Balsam Fir) may shorten recuperation time. You can combine
Frankincense with Palo Santo for pain relief, emotional release, and spinal
stenosis. Palo Santo can also be worn as a perfume to release negative
energy.

The following is what one person wrote about her experience with Palo Santo:

“Having had the wonderful opportunity to go to New York to hear Gary in April
I was lucky enough to come home with the magical Palo Santo oil. I bought it
because Gary mentioned it was good for bone regeneration. I had broken my
wrist in 2001 and it did not heal right. I subsequently developed RSD (reflex
sympathetic dystrophy). And the rest of the story follows:

In July I had an appointment with my primary care physician. She handed me a
print out of my bone density scan, which showed the baseline from 2004, and
the June 2006 results. The scan was taken three months after I started Palo
Santo. My doctor told me how very impressed she was with the 2.5% improvement in
my spine and the 3.3% improvement in my left femur…..”

Essential Oil of Sandlewood For A Dry Cough

The following testimonial on the help for a dry cough using the essential oil of Sandlewook, may help others:

“I occassionally get a non-productive cough that seems to originate in the throat. Several members of my family have a similar thing. It is most irritating. Drinking water does nothing for it. Nor does lemon water or RC. Through the years I have tried anything recommended and simply had to let it go away on its own.

Then at convention about 3 years ago, a friend told me about Sandlewood. One drop on the throat is all you need.”
