I hope this is finding all of you well during our early cold/flu season! I think we are on the final oil that comes in the Everyday Oils Starter Kit - finally. I guess it has been nine months of emails. Hopefully you aren't getting tired of me, heh. If you are, please always let me know and I'll take you off the list, no hard feelings! If you'd like to access the previous emails - that discuss the other 8 oils that come in the starter kit, you can do so here: http://mamalovesoils.com/category/monthly-oils and I hope you'll find all kinds of useful information on this blog as time goes by. I'll keep posting helpful info and ways that we use our oils at my house as well as ideas from friends and other oil users.
Back to PanAway! This oil is pretty incredible, it is one that you can feel the affects of within minutes of using it. It is an oil blend, and it should be used on areas where you feel pain or have inflammation. It contains Wintergreen, Peppermint, Helichrysum, and Clove oils. One of my favorite ways to use this oil is in combination with the Deep Relief roller. Ahh. Talk about relief. So the ways we've used this in our house are:
-Simon has growing pains that wake him up in the middle of the night. I like to dilute it a little bit when I put it on my kids, so I use a little bit of V-6 and mix it with PanAway and rub it on his achy leg (it is usually just one leg at a time that is bothering him). It calms him down almost immediately. It always seems to be the middle of the night when this occurs, so I keep it handy.
-PanAway has worked wonders on Shane's back and mine. I threw my back out earlier this year for the first time ever and it was one of the worst things ever, which I'm sure many of you know if you've had similar complications. I have a new appreciation for how debilitating that can be now. Anyway, after applying Valor to the afflicted area, I rubbed PanAway on and then a lot of times would apply a damp towel and a heating pad on top. The heat and moisture help to drive the oil into your system more effectively. Since it is also an anti-inflammatory it helped with swelling as well. I put the Deep Relief roller on top often when doing this combo as well. Shane has had back problems for years and even had surgery about 10 years ago, so we use these oils on him much more frequently than me. His back flairs up from time to time and he asks for all of these things now.
-PanAway is amazing for headaches as well, you can rub it on your temples and/or pair it with Peppermint and rub both on your temples - just don't get them too close to your eyeballs. I like to lay down for a bit with my eyes closed while the oils work their magic.
-It is a great tool for achy muscles after a hike or workout. If you have muscle strains or pulled muscles you should use this oil!
-I have neck and shoulder pain a lot and use it to ease that pain as well.
-I have a good friend that has horrible jaw pain too and she uses PanAway and Valor on her jaw.
-It is great for bruises and cramps as well.
-PanAway will actually stimulate quicker healing by the induction of oxygen into the tissue site.
-It is great for Arthritis, Rheumatism and it promotes healthy circulation.
-Great for bone pain too - which I guess is what growing pains essential are, in Simon's circumstance for example.
This is an amazing oil for pain relief and if you try it even once I think you'll agree!
I have more books in stock $20 each if you need one or know someone that does - they make great gifts! 🙂
Speaking of gifts - we've got some special stuff going on this weekend. Julie will be coming for a visit again so we're having a spa night in addition to a gift idea night (where we'll even be making some oil related gifts) - so if you are interested at all, please let me know as soon as possible, if you didn't get the information from Anna, I can forward it on to you. Just let me know sometime in the next couple of days if you are interested in one/both of these events - (gift ideas or spa night). The gift ideas are a great inexpensive way to make a lot of things at once with your oils. Plus who doesn't like bath salts/bombs right?
Finally my order goes through on the 7th if you'd like me to add something to my order for you. If you need/want more information on anything please let me know and don't forget about my blog, you can share it with others - www.mamalovesoils.com - lots of info (too much probably).
Oh and one more thing if you place an order of 225PV or more this month you get a free 15ml bottle of Frankincense! Yum!
Be healthy and stay warm as we move into the chill...and holiday season. Oh and don't forget oils make amazing gifts! Let me know if you need anything or have any questions!
