The Benefits of Lemon Essential Oil


Lemon Essential Oil is one of my very favorite oils. Everyone should have this oil because there are so many great things you can do with it and it is pure with no chemicals like the products that can be bought in the store. I drink 2 drops in my bottled water. Gives it a nice fresh taste and great for the body. 

Clean with Lemon Essential Oil and you will love the way it smells. I made a list below to show you some ways you can use this great oil.

Spark Naturals RELIEF Headache Blend




Spark Naturals RELIEF Headache Blend

Most of us get a headache at one time or another. They are a real pain in the neck to deal with. Literally! 

Since I am a blogger and spend lots of time on the computer I get lots of tension headaches. It used to be common for me to pop a couple of pills to take the headaches away. Now I go for the more natural approach by using Essential Oils for everything!  So many people struggle with this daily and if you are anything like me we simply just don't have time for a headache!

Essential Oils for Depression





Depression and Essential Oils

When something works for our family I feel that it is important to share it with the rest of you even if it is something simple. When it comes to Depression any help is good.

Depression is real, it is hard for those who have to deal with it and hard for those who live with someone who does. I did a post recently on Anxiety and these two usually go hand in hand.

Stop Anxiety Attacks Naturally



Stop Anxiety Attack Naturally

Nothing is worse to the person who is going through an Anxiety Attack. If you haven't had to experience one you are extremely lucky. I know because I have been dealing with them since 1998. When they first started I didn't know what it was and the doctors couldn't figure it out. We were overseas and it was the worst time of my life. It wasn't until we got back to the states that a doctor figured out that I having having Anxiety Attacks. I had no idea!

Surviving Allergy Season Naturally






Surviving Allergy Season Naturally

It's that time of year again and I know I am not the only one suffering from Allergies. I honestly have one of the loudest sneezes known to man. I startle everyone around me and there is no warning about three or four times. I inherited this from my Dad and once this starts then come the itchy eyes, the stuffy and runny nose, itchy face, sore eyes, red eyes and more......Blah!



This is a miserable way to live with all the beauty that surrounds us right now.



When these little guys start flying I am done! I have to put myself in a bubble and stay inside. Miserable! 



Now I have finally found relief NATURALLY!  Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint create a natural antihistamine that does not make you drowsy and gives you all the extra benefits of these oils.  You can apply these to the bottom of feet but the benefit of taking this internally in my opinion is much better. 


Benefits of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint




This spiffy little tin comes with Spark Naturals Essential Oils Four Pack. This tin comes with a 5ml bottle of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint plus Melaleuca. I take the Melaleuca out and save it for when I need to make "The Bomb" (a must have for when you get sick) then replace it with empty capsules and a dropper. I keep this with me in my purse for whenever the allergies decide to strike. Life saving!




When symptoms start I grab an empty capsule (size "0" and using the dropper I add 3 drops of all three oils into the capsule and drink with water. It's natural, I don't get tired and I am getting the benefit for many other things. I have it right with me when I need it. 

Where can you purchase Certified Pure PharmaGrade Essential Oils? I highly recommend Spark Naturals. Not a MLM Company and is affordable! They offer 5ml and 15ml bottles along with the great Essential Oil Four Pack. There is no need to pay high prices for Essential Oils when there is an affordable option. 


 Use the code JEDDY and get an additional 10% off.

Treat yourself to this pack. This are great oils to start your Essential Oil journey. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Geranium Essential Oil - Oil of The Month


Geranium Essential Oil - Oil of the Month 


Most of you know that I am a huge lover of Essential Oils. I have found a new company called Spark Naturals that I have been sharing with you. Their oils continue to impress me daily and the prices can't be beat. It makes so much sense, they can drop their prices because they aren't an MLM company and don't have to charge high prices to pay the down lines. These are high quality Certified Pure PharmaGrade Essential Oils. 


The other wonderful thing about Spark Naturals is that they have a Oil of the Month Club. All you do is sign up and every month you will get whatever the oil of the month is for only $15.99! This includes shipping AND it is a 15ml bottle. This is the month you will want to do this because the oil is GERANIUM. Geranium is an AMAZING oil. This is one oil you want to have on hand. 

Using Essential Oils has become a daily routine in our home. We have saved so much money by not having to go to the doctor and of course the miracle of Jeddy's Blend for our son with ADHD. You don't have to buy all the oils at once, just start slow and learn a little each time. You will not be sorry!


Here are just a few examples of how you can use Geranium Essential Oil.

Painful Monthly Cramps 
2-3 drops of Geranium 
2-3 drops of Cypress - use as often as needed

Nursing Moms - 2 drops of Geranium in empty capsule to increase milk supply

Endo Ovulation Pain - Geranium, Clary Sage, Cypress. Layer on lower abdomen

Anxiety - Put on wrists. Diffuse Geranium with Peppermint

Post Surgical Nerve Damage - 1 drop Geranium - 3 to 4 times a day on area.

Stop Nose Bleeds - Simply apply 2 - 3 drops to the nostril that is bleeding.  This may be applied external or internal using a Q-tip or tissue saturated with the Helichrysum.

Post Surgical Nerve Damage - 1 drop of Geranium 3 to 4 times a day. 

1 drop bring down Blood Sugar

Tendinitis - Layer Geranium and Basil on affected area

 Apply a drop to your moisturizer



When you place a Spark Naturals order use the code JEDDY and get an additional 10% off your entire order! (Cannot be used on the oil of the month).
