Cleaning up

December 21, 2013


We have had a doozy of a belly bug around here the last few days. Beginning on Tuesday eve, Big kiddo began to feel crummy and so it all went downhill.
Now there is being under the weather and then is being under the weather with small rambunctious boys. My idea of being sick is curled up in bed peacefully sleeping, or on the couch knitting. Yeah, this is not my reality anymore. Hubby and I took turns on who was sicker to manage the boys while the other slept – and let me tell you – it was rough!!

Once everyone, ahem me, was feeling better it was time for some cleaning. Time for a new batch of Healing Oil, some air purification and some serious dishes.


I love this healing oil recipe – its somewhat similar to the popular Thieve’s Oil but adjusted for our life and purpose. I use this for air purifying by adding a few drops to a small simmering pot of water and letting it go for 30 minutes or so. I also rub a diluted version on my and my kids feet to help colds and bugs. I love this stuff!!

Here is my formula for Healing Oil
1Tbsp clove essential oil
1Tbsp bitter orange essential oil
2.5 tsp cinnamon essential oil
2 tsp eucalyptus essential oil
2 tsp rosemary essential oil
Carrier oil of choice : I love sweet almond oil for this

Mix all oils together and place in small dark colored glass bottles. I like to keep one diluted by 50% and one bottle pure. Just remember that some of these oils are hot on the skin and will warm up little bodies. Dilute by 75% for small kids.

Wishing health and light for you all this winter day!!
