ESSENTIAL OILS DO NOT NEED TO COST AN ARM AND A LEG!
Many who have been in the shop over the summer know how much I love Copaiba Oil. A recent study quoted by the National Insistent of Health demonstrated that one of the major components of the oil is a potent anti-inflammatory - one of the strongest anti-inflammatory essential oils; it is also gentle - well absorbed by almost all people. Gentle, reduces inflammation, well absorbed.....Thinking Hemorrhoids anyone??? Copaiba has also been used for generations as effective pain reliever and wound healer too. I keep it in my purse at all times. This oil is a perfect example of my favorite lesson: Oils need NOT be expensive to be powerful. At $10 a bottle this packs a punch!!!
BACK TO LICE? NOT WITH TEA TREE OIL!
Back-To-School & Ultra-Resistant Lice is in the news.....resistant to conventional treatment that is. According to the Today show, "head lice, long the bane of parents and kids across the country, are becoming a much worse problem: Strains of the pesky parasites that are resistant to most over-the-counter treatments have now been found in at least 25 states." (http://www.today.com/health/super-strains-lice-spread-25-states-new-report-finds-t37631)
Essential Oils yet again might be the answer! One study by the NIH showed tea tree oil was effective against head lice with 100 % mortality at 30 min and 1 % concentration. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22847279)
KEEP YOUR COOL!
Did you know that you can extend the shelf life of your EOs by up to 5 years just by keeping them refrigerated? Many oils, like citrus, tea tree, and lavender oxidize quickly and do not last more than a year if kept in home closets. Simply put them in a Tupperware-style container and pop them in the fridge to keep them fresh and extend their usefulness! At Josiah's Oils, we cold-store your oils from receipt from the distiller, so they are as fresh as possible the minute you get them. No sitting on shelves or in a storage room as they would degrade and not be a fresh as possible for your family!

Ever wonder which essential oil repels which insect effectively? Here's a list of the most common pests and their best essential oil repellents! Always dilute essential oils before using on the skin; make your own sprays, or diffuse these oils too to help repel bugs.
Ticks operate mostly by using their sense of smell - awaiting the victims by scent - so Rose Geranium is a powerful repellent!
At Josiah's Oils, we also offer a complete concentrated Insect Away Blend to make your own spray!
