Tuesday Tidbit

tt

Hello Everyone! Happy 2019

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I decided to take December off from a lot of social media, and keeping up with the bare minimum. This enabled me to have time to rest, I hibernated a lot in December! I was working a lot in my new business.

For those of you who missed it, my husband and I went into business together. This has also been a fantastic shift. We love the time we are spending working together. Our family time has increased and we are now working with the kids on work ethic. They also have been helping the family by working!

Balancing schedules has been the largest shift in going 100% self-employed. I have had to really take a look at the time I have and make things a priority.  The Tuesday Tidbit has a large audience and taking the month of December off allowed me to see what my schedule is able to accommodate.

I am not able to do weekly tidbits any longer, but I can do a few of them a month.

The tidbit is made to have information in seven minutes or less! Essential Oil education has been the foundation of the tidbit, and at times we talk about personal development. Sometimes, we talk about stones or crystals… each week has been so much fun engaging with the audience.

You can find my tidbits on Facebook.

There is an event up so you can RSVP and get notifications. Make sure to FOLLOW the page and TURN ON your notifications. The replay is always there as well.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE TIDBIT.

Journaling Challenge 2019

I am so excited about 2019!

There is always something refreshing about a new year. One of the things I attempted to accomplish in 2018 was to journal. I did well for about a week and then…well…things got “busy”. So this year when I purchased a new journal for 2019, I asked myself “How can I get through the entire year? What needs to happen?”

Well, first thing is setting the intention, then go out and find support. So I decided to just randomly ask on Facebook who would be interested in this concept for 2 weeks? Closed group, and we hold each other accountable. I was shocked to see so many people respond, at this point I knew I was on to something. So I created the group.

I would like to personally invite you to join the CHALLENGE. Click here to join the closed Facebook Group.

I look forward to creating this new habit for 2019 alongside like minded people. I thrive in a group setting, and I am thrilled to see what happens! Happy 2019.

Essential Oil Mishaps & Solutions

Mishaps 1

This blog topic came up in a Facebook thread. One of our team members posted about a mishap with her oils. I knew that many of us avid oilers have had mishaps with our essential oils. Most were accident, lack of education, just learning how to use essential oils….and some were just down right comical.

I decided to reach out to my team to learn what some of them have encountered while using essential oils. The comments begin to pile up, and I have to go through them the next morning. I realized that we have all been here. The purpose of this blog is to make you giggle a little bit, learn some of the tidbits of oils gone wrong. Most importantly, I want to share with you some solutions to these OILER problems.

First of all I always want to teach the safety guidelines of using essential oils. Click the link to read the guidelines. Another piece of education I offer on this site is our Beginners Guide. This guide goes over many of the basic use of essential oils. I have found the easiest way to get these guidelines to others is on the website. People can watch and learn at own pace, come back later if they have questions.

So…. What kind of mishaps have happened to our OILY crew??

“Putting too many oils in the diffuser”

Solution: You can either dump it out and start over…or I have in the past taken half the water out and put in a mason jar… add new water to the left over water in the diffuser….use the mason jar at a later date diluted or add to a different diffuser that day.

“Too much Lemon oil in my water”

Solution: Less is more. You can do the same principle above, putting half your potent lemon water in another waterbottle…. or dump. Remember ONE drop is all you probably need. The oils are concentrated… One drop of peppermint is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea.

“I didn’t wash my hands, and rubbed my eyes”

Solution: Grab a carrier oil. Most people use coconut oil, you can put a little coconut oil on a q tip and place next to the eye, hold in place. The essential oils draw to the coconut oil, and let the eye flush. This advice is of course is for small incidents, larger accidents can be dangerous….and likely avoided by hand washing after dispensing. Make sure to wash you hands after application.

“I decided to use essential oil hand sanitizer for deodorant. OUCH.”

Solution: Don’t use hand santizer for deodorant 🙂 , All jokes aside, when oils trigger a response from the skin… DILUTION IS HUGE. As mentioned in our beginners guide and essential oil safety guidelines, dilution is needed for safe application of essential oils. Now perhaps, the sanitizer diluted may of worked without the burn. Add more carrier when in doubt.

“I used too many drops and my skin was on fire”

Solution: More Carrier oil. Keep putting the oil on the area that is hot. Eventually it will calm down…but for now keep adding the carrier oil. DO NOT USE WATER. It will make it worse. Your best bet is to keep using carrier oil to cool the skin and dilute the oils.

Being a new essential oil user can be intimidating at first. Just remember that less is more…and I hope some of these tips help you in a time of “oops”.

So do you have an essential oil mishap? Message me. I would love to add to this blog.

Thank you team OILsome for sharing your stories with me. Xoxo
