Ditch Sugar Cravings With Dill Essential Oil.

 Ditch Sugar Cravings With Dill Essential Oil.
"Rats given sweetened water in experiments find it significantly more pleasurable than cocaine, even when they’re addicted to the latter, and more than heroin as well."
Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!

Many adults eat much more sugar than necessary, so reducing added sugar intake is a healthful idea for most people. Some people may wish to take it a step further and cut sugar out of their diet entirely.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that adults in the United States get about 15% of their calories from added sugars alone. This sugar intake does not even include natural sugars, such as those in products such as fruit and milk.
Excessive sugar consumption has links to several harmful health conditions, including:
  • obesity and metabolic syndrome
  • heart disease
  • type 2 diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • chronic inflammation
  • nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • dental plaque and cavities
Reducing the amount of sugar in the diet can help a person reduce their risk of these health conditions.

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: DILL 
Dill is a powerful essential oil for feeling “full” after a meal. The problem with sugars and carbs is that they make us feel more full compared to, say, a kale salad. Dill makes your healthy meals and snacks feel more satisfying because it stimulates the brain's satiety center!

//historical uses of eucalyptus//
Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia. As an ingredient in many products, it is used to reduce symptoms of coughs, colds, and congestion. It also features in creams and ointments aimed at relieving muscle and joint pain.
In it’s native Australia, Eucalyptus Blue was recognized as the most disinfecting of all eucalyptus and was traditionally used as a to fight off colds and flu.
Topical ointments containing eucalyptus have been used in traditional Aboriginal medicine to support wound healing. Various uses of eucalyptus have spread to other traditional systems around the globe, including Chinese, Indian (Ayurvedic), and Greco-European systems over the past centuries. The French government planted eucalyptus trees in Algeria in 1857. In just five years the trees turned a once marshy land where they were planted, into a drier region, which ultimately reduced the mosquito habitat, giving the eucalyptus the name “fever tree.” The trees went on to be planted in other areas. During the 19th century in England, eucalyptus was used in hospitals to clean urinary catheters. Many studies later revealed that eucalyptus oil contains substances with microbial properties, confirming the British use as a cleaning agent.






//historical uses of peppermint//
Peppermint leaves have been used as a remedy for indigestion since the Ancient Egyptians, and the ancient Greeks and Romans valued it as a stomach soother as well. During the eighteenth century, the herb became popular in Western Europe as a remedy for nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, respiratory infections, and menstrual disorders.
Peppermint was first listed in the London Pharmacopoeia in 1721. In modern times it appears in the British Herbal pharmacopeia as a remedy for intestinal colic, gas, colds, morning sickness, and menstruation pain.









//historical uses of myrtle//
Myrtle occupies a prominent place in the writings of Hippocrates, Pliny, Dioscorides, Galen, and the Arabian writers. It has been prescribed for fever and pain by ancient physicians since at least 2,500 BC in Sumer.
Myrtle's effects are due to high levels of salicylic acid, a compound related to aspirin, and the basis of the modern class of drugs known as NSAIDs.
In several countries, particularly in Europe and China, there has been a tradition for prescribing this substance for sinus infections.




//historical uses of copaiba//
On the Rio Solimoes in northwest Amazonia, copaiba resin is used topically by indigenous tribes as a wound healer, to stop bleeding, for skin sores and psoriasis, and to treat gonorrhea. Healers and curanderos in the Amazon today use copaiba resin for all types of pain, for skin disorders and insect bites, and to cool inflammation.
In Brazilian herbal medicine systems, the resin is used as a strong antiseptic and expectorant for the respiratory tract (including bronchitis and sinusitis), as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic for the urinary tract (for cystitis, bladder, and kidney infections), as a topical anti-inflammatory agent for all types of skin problems.

Copaiba resin was first recorded in European medicine in 1625 and has been used there since in the treatment of chronic cystitis, bronchitis, chronic diarrhea, and as a topical preparation for hemorrhoids. In the United States, it was an official drug in the U. S. Pharmacopeia from 1820 to 1910.

HOW TO USE BREATHE AGAIN:
 Apply generously to chest and neck as desired.

5 Best Essential Oils For Sleep

5 Best Essential Oils For Sleep
I know ...you're busy. You run all day long tending to your family, working a job, or running a business. You fall into bed each night exhausted. 

BUT THEN.....

You lay awake with your mind going ninety to nothing. You toss and turn and in the morning you feel like you worked all night in a salt mine.

I've been there. I have tried many things to help me sleep better over the years. Some things worked, some didn't.

Until now.

Sleep deprivation is becoming a public health epidemic as more people struggle with not getting enough rest. Not getting enough sleep is linked to car and work accidents. Insufficient sleep leads to depression, weight gain, metabolic issues, premature aging, low-grade inflammation, mood swings, and reduced quality of life. 

Did you know that you can die from sleep deprivation before you starved to death?  It takes about 2 weeks to die from starvation while 10 days without sleep could kill you.

Many factors can affect your sleep:
 
  1. 24-7 access to technology
  2. Work schedules
  3. Stress 
  4. Sleep disorders
Cortisol is the primary stress hormone. This is the fight or flight hormone that gives our bodies enough energy to survive dangerous situations. When cortisol level increases it triggers a release of amino acids from your muscles, glucose from the liver, and fatty acids into the bloodstream. this is then secreted throughout your body, peaking in the morning and dropping at night to help us get to sleep.

BUT...

Our busy lives are so full of stress, poor diets, and lack of good sleep that this "natural" timeclock is disrupted and our cortisol levels are high all day long.

High cortisol levels  have been linked to:
 
  1.  Adrenal fatigue
  2. Hormonal imbalance 
  3. Elevated cholesterol
  4. Elevated blood sugar
  5. Heart disease
  6. Decreased Sex Hormones
  7. Mood swings
  8. Depression
  9. Weight gain
The good news is there are EASY steps you can take to improve your sleep. A good healthy diet, of course as well as avoiding stimulants, keeping your blood sugar stable, and exercising will help support a more restful night's sleep. 

Using therapeutic grade essential oils is another easy safe way to help you sleep like a baby.

Essential oils don't just smell pretty they have tons of amazing properties. Each oil has its own set of organic compounds that make that oil unique. Many essential oils have several different chemical compounds, so one essential oil can be good for many different things.  Some contain antioxidants that create an unfriendly environment for free radicals that come from outside the body. Tobacco, smoke, toxins, pollutants that damage your body's cells and DNA by altering their chemical structure are all free radicals. ( No wonder we have trouble sleeping!)

Essential oils can provide oxygen to the cells. They support the circulatory, endocrine, digestive and nervous systems. They can increase energy, help with stress, mood management, improve focus and help you relax and sleep.

It's almost as if God knew what he was doing when he created plants and trees!!


 I only use Young Living essential oils. They are the biggest essential oil company in the world and the leader in the industry. Young Living is the only company with the Seed to Seal Promise. A good quality therapeutic essential oil makes all the difference. Buying a bottle of cheap oil gives you cheap oil. You will NOT get the same results.

Would you like Essential Oils course notes sent to your phone? Text EO101 to 406-400-9546 and I will send it right over.

How do you use essential oils to help you get a good night's sleep? Well, there are three ways you can use essential oils.

At night I usually diffuse essential oils and put them on my feet and wrist. Remember everyone is different. What works for me may not work for you. BUT these 5  essential oils or blends I have found to work for many people. So experiment a little and find what works for you.

 If you are interested in learning more about Young Living Essential Oils, Look around my website, there is a ton of information here. http://marieinmontana.com/

Here we go. I am so excited to share these. It has made such a BIG difference in how I sleep.#gamechanger

Lavender

Known as the swiss army knife of essential oils. It is very calming. Studies show participants who diffused Lavender oil at night ranked their sleep 20% better than the placebo group. You can use it by its self or mixed with another oil.


CEDARWOOD

AHHH, relaxing, soothing Cedarwood. It helps the brain to STOP processing. It stimulates the limbic region of the brain which is the center of our emotions and memories. The limbic system is only activated by the sense of smell. This is why essential oils can be so powerful. 
 I am working on a webinar about essential oils and the limbic system. If you are interested in that comment below and I will keep you updated. It is fascinating!!




I use Cedarwood and Lavender together on my feet or diffuse them or both!




Vetiver

I have only recently started using this and it is my new favorite. I have been using it by itself with a carrier oil but you can blend it with the Lavender and Cedarwood too. Vetiver comes from the Vetiver plant in India. It can calm your nerves with its earthy smell and it helps to relax the nervous system. 



 Vetiver is a very thick oil so you have to warm it a little to get it to come out.  I carry it in my pocket or.....



** NOTE- Just like anything else there are safety guidelines to follow with essential oils. There are some oils you have to use a carrier oil with when applying to your skin.  I use a carrier oil with just about every essential oil. I like how it feels and feel like it absorbs better and makes the essential oil go further.

A few carrier oils you can use are: 

Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Jojoba Oil
V6 from Young Living

FRANKINCENSE

I always say if it's good enough for Jesus, its good enough for me :)

Frankincense has a sweet, warm balsamic aroma that helps to refocus the mind, overcome stress. It helps clear the mind to get a good night's sleep.
STRESS AWAY BLEND
 
Stress Away is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Vanilla, Cedarwood, Lavender, and Ocotea. It helps to relieve daily stress and anxious feelings, promotes relaxation, and restores equilibrium.


Many more essential oils can help you get a good night's sleep. The best way to find out what works best for you is just to experiment.
