What a week it has been! I think at this point we’ve all seen Sue Murray’s post go viral with over 700,000 shares. I’m writing because I wanted to share some lessons from her experience with you. But first, for those of you haven’t heard let me catch you up to speed…
Sue, new to essential oils, diffused them at home. On the 4th day of using her new oils she noticed something. Her cat, Ernie, was noticeably ill. After a Google search that said the eucalyptus oil she was diffusing can be fatal to cats, she quickly rushed her cat to the vet. The good news in all this is Ernie is being nursed back to health and Sue took the necessary steps to give him the care he needs after that experience.
Personally, I’ve used Essential Oils to help my family, with no problems with our pets.
Here are my golden rules when it comes to oils and pets:
- Don’t apply oils, neat or diluted to cats. They self-clean and will ingest potentially toxic amounts of them
- Dogs can have pre-diluted blends applied, and can really enjoy the stress relieving benefits of pet safe blends
- If you are diffusing oils DO NOT shut pets off in a room with you (maybe you shouldn’t have buster in bed with you while you use a sleepy-time blend) Even diffused oils can end up on your companions coat
I typically use oils to help keep my family healthy, and it seemed intimidating at first. Stories like Sue’s can be extremely worrying. Let me tell you all about how I started using oils like a pro.
I used to be just like Sue, and this is how my family started using oils safely.
If you’ve got kids or relatives in school you might get the same reoccurring nightmare that I get. I cringe thinking of when my family gets its first running nose because I know it could be the beginning of ‘flu season’. And what does that mean? That means coughing, sneezing, restless nights, missed school…the list goes on.
This year, I got lucky though.
One day I had a house full of kids coughing, sneezing and dripping (with who knows what) while my husband was tied up at work. I could feel myself starting to get some aches and I knew I had to spring into action quickly. I’ve had a neighborhood friend who I could always depend on for help, so I asked her to keep an eye on my kids while I ran down to the pharmacy for an armful of medicine. She was happy to help as usual and said she’d have a surprise for me when I returned. I thanked her and hurried off.
When I returned she reminded me that she had been using essential oils for years as home remedies for just about everything. She’d been so nice to help out I felt obligated to listen, so I nodded nicely. In the back of my mind, I told myself that that sounded nice, but I had grown up in a home where my parents had just rushed us to a family doctor if someone at home started to get sick. I mean, I do believe that there are real alternative medicines out there, but for some reason I had thought essential oils were more for making your house smell good and refreshing, not for any real medicinal purpose.
She handed me this small bottle and said, “You’re going to love this”..
She told me to rub a few drops on my feet or chest. I’m sure the look on my face wasn’t very convincing but I thanked her for the bottle and her time before she left.
(I almost forgot to mention that she instructed me to use just a little at first because some are more sensitive to this powerful oil)
IN LESS THAN AN HOUR, I COULD ALREADY FEEL THE EFFECTS.
I felt like I had a bottle of magic and I quickly gathered my children and did the same for them. It worked for them too!! As soon as my husband returned home for work (and before he could raise his usual objections) I applied the oil to him as well. I just couldn’t believe it. Within days, our house was restored to its usual order 😉 It was free of aches, sneezing, coughing, and complaining children (well maybe just complaints about being sick)
It wasn’t until a few weeks later that what I had stumbled onto really started to sink in. I’d woken up with a sore throat one morning and didn’t think too much of it since I was preoccupied going through my mental checklist of things I must do to get kids off to school. I was about to brush my teeth when I saw that little bottle from my neighbor next to my sink. I quickly used this little bottle and by the time everyone was out the door, I felt unbelievably new. Normally that sore throat would have turned into the usual aches, fever, horrible sleep, etc…but not this time!
Who knew something so little could do so much?
THAT IS WHEN I BECAME 100% CONVINCED
I don’t play close attention to all the news about our national healthcare crisis, but I am very aware, as a mother, about the cost of doctor visits and medicine. Clearly the cost of medicine has gone insanely high and I can’t stand the thought of having ‘pharma’ companies getting disgustingly rich off our countries family’s dependencies on pills. I guess that’s probably why my face scrunched up a little when my neighbor handed me a bottle of oil. We’re all just so ready to take a pill to make us feel better. I also think my face showed plenty of disbelief because I had always thought that essential oils were there to make your house smell great. I had no idea that it could have medicinal or therapeutic qualities.
I did a bit of searching about essential oils (probably because I had more time now that my family wasn’t sick all the time) and found out that plenty of other countries use essential oils for medicinal purposes. For example, in Japan essential oils are used regularly and you’d probably be shocked to find out that Japan has nearly 50,000 people currently living over the age of 100. That’s almost as much as the US but they’re one-third our size. Seems like they’ve got something in healthcare figured out!
So here is what makes essential oils so special. Essential oils are the highly concentrated essence of plants. Plants are earth’s readily available source of antioxidants, antimicrobial, vitamins & minerals, phytonutrients and much much more. Scientists have become experts at generating super concentrated, highly potent, powerhouse drops of oil.
SO HERE IS THE NAME OF THE INCREDIBLE BOTTLE
The tiny but highly potent bottle is called Terra Pure™ Blend. It contains pure extracts of clove, cinnamon, lemon, lime, eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint, spearmint and oregano. According to them, this product has been formulated specifically to boost your body’s natural immunity as well as eradicate germs, viruses and other toxins in the home.
After doing a bit of research, I found out that they are just a small group of people who are extremely passionate about the powers of essential oils. They were frustrated by the poorly crafted oils of competitors and decided to make a name for themselves in the industry. Apparently many essential oil competitors just don’t have the same strict adherence to product purity. You’d be shocked to find out how many oils out there contain remnant solvents, contaminants and impurities.
This company is so dedicated to product purity that they created an internal grading system for oil quality. It’s call the 100% PURE Promise. They’re now even backing that PURE Promise up with 3rd party testing and making sure their oil passes a very strict GC/MS test. This product has literally changed my family’s life as well as change how I look at medicine. From what I understand, they plan to roll out many more essential oils but the overnight success of their immunity blend has them 100% focused on making sure product goes out the door completely pure.
I think one of the neatest things that they’re doing is offering an Immunity Blend kit where you can get both the concentrated little bottle, but they actually send out a pre-diluted roll-on bottle that makes it super simple to apply this amazing oil to your kids.
This product is very popular so I recommend you pick up the Immunity Blend Kit RIGHT NOW, while it’s still available.
Terra Pure™ Essential Oil Blend
I’ve been told that they’re offering a trial of the Immunity Kit for a limited time. Now, it seems silly to me since I’ve already seen the effects of this super powerful oil. But I guess they just want to spread the word by offering a risk free way to see for yourself if this oil can really work for you and your family. After you purchase the Immunity Kit, you’re going to see a 100% pure coconut oil that you should use to dilute the concentrated immunity blend product. The price they’re offering for such a quality coconut oil is super cheap.
I can’t wait for your questions and feedback!
Thanks to Terra Pure™, I have my family back! ? ? ?
P.S. I think I should mention this because when I did my research of essential oil companies I found a ton of MLM’s out there. This is a retail company only. No distributors or membership fees needed. They just want to sell direct to their customers.
P.P.S. Some of the oils in the immunity blend are highly concentrated so make sure you follow their instructions for diluting the Immunity Blend for kids under 12. If you’ve got children under 6, you should ask a doctor first.
UPDATE: OK, someone from Terra Pure™ read this article and sent me an email to clarify a few things. He wanted to make it clear that the trial bottle is only temporary until they get a larger base of happy customers and more positive testimonials about Terra Pure™. He also said the three-bottle package is only available at that website, and not anywhere else. Also, it is formulated in a GMP certified facility using 100% natural ingredients. I hope that clarifies any questions you have. Better get them at these prices while you can!
