This is a phrase that I learned from a good friend of mine Wade Fields when our kids were young and I used it all the time at the dinner table. Now I find that I use it on myself sometimes when talking about essential oils.
It may come as a shock to you but I don’t find all essential oils to have a pleasing aroma. That being said I do find that they all have amazing benefits to support my body that outweigh my reluctance to use them because of their aroma (except patchouli I just can’t)
Today I’d like to talk about an oil that I think smells like turpentine…Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil. (Actually the chemical compounds are Terpinen-4-ol, γ-terpinene, α-terpinene so it makes sense it smells that way) Funny thing is my daughter loves the aroma of melaleuca I mean LOVES it! She can’t get enough of it and I’m glad because it has some amazing properties and uses.
dōTERRA Melaleuca essential oil is renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin. If you get occasional skin irritations, I’m 44 and I still get those skin irritations…ugh, apply 1–2 drops of Melaleuca essential oil onto affected area. For an added cleansing property, I love to combine 1–2 drops with my facial cleanser.
Guys you can apply 1-2 drops to your skin right after shaving it will help a ton!
Not only is it best for cosmetic care, dōTERRA Melaleuca works great when cleaning hard surfaces. Add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces in your home to protect against environmental and seasonal threats.
Now, one common New Year’s resolution is to exercise. I love going to the gym! I pick up the weights, pick up some good habits but there are some things that you REALLY don’t want to pick up while you are there. So, let’s talk about taking care of your feet. Treat your feet to some tender love and care by trying this Melaleuca foot balm. It feels great on your feet and you are helping to protect against both environmental and communal threats 😉
So next time you want to Yuck someone else’s yum you might want to do a little research and find out the benefits or positive reasons why they love it. If you don’t want to do the research yourself then send me a message and I will find the good things and write about them for you.
What could be better than that?
