Most of my scheduled classes this month are private in home classes.
At this point in time, I do have an introductory class on the 28th at 1 pm at Inner Health Spa on 5th Street in Springfield, IL. This class is a Diamond Club event. For you, this means if you bring oils into your home at or within 3 days of the class, you will get a bonus free bottle of Grapefruit oil. But there is an added bonus. I will have someone there who is offering a free Zytoscan to those on my oil team and those who join that day. Only $10 for everyone else. A Zytoscan guides you in the direction of the oils you need to balance your body. A balanced body is a healthy body. Remember, our bodies can heal themselves, but they need the correct input signals to do so. Oils are complex chemistry that can provide those signals.
I still have nights and weekends open for those who would like one-on-one, small group sessions, or who would like to host a class. Send me a message and we can talk details including how you can get free oils for hosting.
Internet classes are always a great option as well!!!
Basil is such an intriguing oil. I chose it for this month's newsletter because I used it just last night to help my toddler with ear pain. Is there anything worse than hearing a tiny little voice say 'it hurts' when pointing to their body? I think not. But I helped him with a drop of basil oil on a cotton ball and placed in his ear with the oil side facing inwards. And a little extra rubbed around his ear. Within 5 minutes he had stopped whimpering from pain. Within 20 minutes he was fast asleep. We did it again today twice just in case, but no more 'it hurts' from him!
Random facts about this neat herb is that is it considered sacred in the Hindu cultures, believed by many to be a favorite of their gods. In some cultures, basil is a sign of love and devotion between young couples. Hmmm. Never thought I'd get a Valentine's theme from our favorite 'go to' for ear pain in the little ones!
As with most essential oils, basil has been studied for its efficacy against strongly drug resistant bacteria. Spiritually, it is thought of an an 'oil of renewal' and can be found in many blends to assist with adrenal fatigue.
The oils are as versatile as we are different from each other. If you find an oil doesn't work well with one application method, try another. For example, a common sleep and relaxation blend works wonders for me when I use it topically, but keeps me restless if I diffuse it. Or if you want to stick to topical and the bottom of the foot doesn't work, try the back of the neck or spine. Remember to follow instructions for dilution and use. If the oil doesn't say for internal use, do NOT take it internally.

In the United States, $ = Points for oils. Some supplements do not carry a full point value. Beyond this promotion, there are no monthly or annual purchase requirements. You don't even have to put together newsletters ;)
