Hawaii Use Coconuts

We are in Kuai and I thought I would do a quick blog on Coconut. We buy coconut milk for our kids because one its not mucus forming, it has very similiar properties as mothers milk with the lauric acid content and has good oils,protein and calcium. At times we will buy thai coconuts and blend the meat with the sweet water, but ususally we will go for the convenience of a boxed coconut milk like So Delicious unsweetened you can get from Smiths or Good Earth. So If you want, try coconut milk instead of cow milk:)

Coco Waters

What is Vita Coco?

Vita Coco's an all-natural, super-hydrating, fat-free, cholesterol-free, nutrient-packed, potassium-stacked, mega-electrolyte coconut water!

So good for kids. We use these instead of fruit juice boxes...and they are great to have on hand after exercise or when your kids get sick to replace vital nutrients and electrolytes.

Be a Doctor Mama

The Family Physician® Kit is a collection of ten nurturing essential oils, including six single oils and four blends. The stunning box includes tips for using the oils, as well as an audio CD featuring dōTERRA®'s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. David K. Hill. In this audio presentation, Dr. Hill teaches listeners how to care for their family's everyday health needs with simple and safe methods using the ten essential oils included in this kit. Includes 5 ml bottles of Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Oregano, Frankincense, Deep Blue®, Breathe, DigestZen®, and On Guard™ to help families address a multitude of health issues.

If you are new to using oils with your family of little ones..this is where I started, thank you to my sister Jo. It was like the using essential oils with your kids for Dummies:)The oils are a bit pricey, but they last a very long time and we very very rarely visit the Doctor because we can use these and other natural remedies at home. If you are strapped for money, I completely understand. I also understand how nice it is to feel like you can sustain your family if you can not get to a doctor. I was also so amazed how effective they really were when I started using them...they really did work; they are 70 times more potent than the herb itself.
If you want the oils and need a better wholesale price, that is what I did, and it make a bit more affordable for our family. I try pace myself and get what is needed at the time and now have stared to build my medicinal herb storage a bit:) However, I did start with this amazing kit, which is a bit more in price, to help me understand how powerful natures oils can be with my kids. Then when I used them I noticed what we were using the most and replaced them one by one as needed.

*The Oils I have used the most this sicky season are:

OnGaurd-Immune protection for family/kids at school and public, all the time
Oregano-This will wipe out everything bacterial and viral...use with coconut oil/caution on kids:)I got over an infection with this this season.
Digestzen-Upset Tummy's Regulation
Lavendar-Fevers,Sleep, Anxiety
Maleluca- Yeast and my sons eczema
Lemon-Congestion and Cleansing

Liquid Mineral Salts

To keep our bodies running we need energy—not just any energy but "sustainable energy." To have "sustainable energy" you must have salt. Salt is the body's matrix system for transporting energy throughout the entire human organism. A deficiency of salt is equal to a deficiency of energy. pHlavor helps fight that deficiency.

I use this for me and my kids to not only flavor salads,soups and entrees but also to up their alkalinity and replace vital mineral salts. I use it at dance when I get a little faint and its awesome to just spray a little at those times when you crave sugar.

Christmas Oils Yeah!

Enjoy the convenience and flexibility of an advanced aromatherapy system. The Aroma-Ace is a powerful, compact, and easy to use Essential Oil Diffuser System. It has built in on/off timers and output volume control for easy adjustments.
I was so grateful to receive this gift this year. It is a Essential Oil diffuser that Doterra sells. You can put OnGaurd and other immune oils in your kids bedrooms when they are sick, we have been diffusing pure White Fir oil to make our home smell like Christmas; real oil with real medicinal properties(ie:CharLees leg aches)unlike fake candle scents. You can diffuse Lavendar or Sandlewood to calm or diffuse Lemon to actually sanitize the air you breathe......all I can say is it is awesome:)Thank you Gr and Grp Bee.
My next goal is to get Frankincense and Clary Sage(hormones:) for neurological me, CharLee Balance for Anxiety, and Lavendar for the girls.....Citris Bliss would also be so fun to have to give our home that yummy orange smell, Yeah for Oils!!!!
