Monday is Essential Oil Only Day, again, at Pedal Pushers

Posted on January 29, 2017 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (0)


 

The average person applies 300 chemicals to their body every single day! Products intended for personal “care” are, in fact, body pollutants. So are fabric softeners & dryer sheets, air freshener plug-ins and sprays, and candles. Then, include all that stuff with unpronounceable names on the labels of the bottles in the cupboards under our sinks: dish soap, kitchen counter cleaner, tub scrub…

Those toxins are breathed into our bodies while, at the same time, they’re being absorbed by our skin… it’s a horrifying realization.

And even though so many of them are known to cause asthma or endocrine disruptions, health and safety data only exists for 15 percent of all the chemicals that we’re constantly in contact with.

 

Did you know that there’s a better way?

From the beginning of time, essential oils have been used in over a million ways. From cleaning anything, to any kind of personal care product; in cooking, for air freshening, for mood-lifting, for immune-system support, in pet care, for wellness enhancement and in nutritional supplements…an endless list.

 

Eliminating lethal poisons from your loved ones lives is easier, cheaper and, most importantly, way more fun than you would expect. It smells really nice, too.

Come to a free one-hour class on Monday and get started! Let’s do it together.

 

Classes are at Noon, 3 pm and 6 pm.

Essential Oils at a Bike Shop??

Posted on November 27, 2016 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Here's one reason that you'll find

the planet's finest essential oils 

at Pedal Pushers:

When your bike's seat bruises your behind, a little bit of lavender and copaiba can help ease the angst of climbing back on for another rejuvenating ride. If the "d'area" of discomfort is somewhat, er, substantial, add a dab of coconut or olive oil to help spread your essential oils around.

Dietary-grade versions of these essential oils are available, and recommended, if you would rather roll on the safer side.  

In the unlikely event that the oils cause stinging, or any other discomfort, just add more carrier oil.

Both of these soothing essential oils are in stock today at Pedal Pushers. 

Go to our "Links" page to find more information about these incredible oils, including how to order!

My New Year's Miracle

Posted on January 29, 2016 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I finally got sick.  That dreadful bug that's got everybody that we know actually got me, too, and now I can't boast obnoxiously about my heroic health to everyone who is suffering around me.

I have rarely felt so hopeless and blue and absolutely pathetic. Sleepy time lasted at least 12 hours each night, and I was so absolutely bummed out.

Really, really sick.

 

But now I feel amazing again, and I’m grateful for the lesson in empathy.

We'll see how long that lasts.


 

Young Living's R.C. Oil blend  is what at last returned relief to my joyless life, and so it is today's  Essential Oil Du Jour.

After more than a week of constant, phlegmy coughing, my lungs and ribs - my entire torso, actually - ached endlessly, and on that last night of misery, my throat was raw and throbbing sore, too.

Before shuffling off to bed, thinking that maybe it was time to see about some antibiotics  (bronchitis? Something more severe? Oh, crap), my Beloved rubbed a few drops of R.C. (cut with some coconut oil) (for the first time since this flu bought me, for crying out loud) (what the heck was I waiting for??) onto my entire back and sides. 

I did the same all over my ribcage and sternum, and then tried a little Peppermint with coconut oil, and then, a little bit later, a drop or two of Panaway, on my neck, hoping to help my sore throat.

 

Probably a total of 8 drops of RC were used, and even less of the other two essential oils, and yet, the next morning I awoke to the most miraculous feeling of total wonderfulness, to put it mildly.

It's impossible for me to properly describe it, and I honestly still can not believe how different and how well I felt the next morning. The word "miracle" falls short.

R.C. is a blend of ten different essential oils, and is one of the Essential Oils included in Young Living's awesome Premium Starter Kit.( FYI: You’ll find all three of the essential oils that I mentioned in your Premium Starter kit).

Eucalyptus globulus is one among several eucalyptus essential oils. Its primary use is to support the respiratory system. It helped my body combat any infections that might have grown in my throat and lungs. It also soothed the muscle discomfort.

Eucalyptus radiata or, Black Peppermint Oil is another eucalyptus essential oil, is  used as an expectorant and an anti-inflammatory.

Eucalyptus citriodora  helped my body with the decongesting and disinfecting of my sinuses and lungs.

Myrtle Essential Oil helped relieve my sore throat and the chest.

Pine Essential Oil was first used by Hippocrates in the support of the respiratory system.

Marjoram Essential Oil is another essential oil supportive of the respiratory system, and the antispasmodic properties in this oil helped to relieve my cough.

Lavender Essential Oil is relaxing and grounding, and I was able to sleep.

Cypress Essential Oil helps with blood circulation and lymph flow.

Peppermint Essential Oil is one of the most highly regarded herbs for nasal and lung decongestion.

Black Spruce is the tenth ingredient in the R.C. blend, and one that also supports the respiratory system.

 

And, from now on, we will always have a bottle of RC in our house, and there will forever be one in my purse, for sharing.

Forever.
