Purification

Today’s oil review is Purification. I received this when I bought the Thieves oil cleaning kit. I got a little bucket, thieves cleaner, and a bunch of nice oils that are great for making the house smell fresh. When I saw the Purification blend, I set it aside in the little oil carry bag I got, and there it sat. Then a week ago, I was finding my laundry was smelling yucky. I had run out of a cleaning product that contained tea tree oil, and thought, well I need to reorder that. But, maybe I have something around the house already. I had some tea tree, but it was from the grocery store and smelled kind of weird…more like a chemical. I saw the Purification blend sitting there, so I checked to see what was in it. Hmm. It has Tea Tree in it already. It also has things in it like Citronella, Rosemary and Lemongrass, and smells really nice. So, I went and got my laundry in the machine and put my usual vinegar into the fabric softener spot, and added 4 drops of Purification to the laundry.

The result was great. The washer smells fresh, which is not always the case with a front load. But, better still, the laundry smelled amazing, and had zero vinegar smell. The entire laundry room smells fresh and lovely, which is hard to do, because the kitty litter box is in there. haha! Even out of the dryer the laundry still smelled great. I had been using lavender in my vinegar, but after things came out of the dryer, my clothes seemed like they smelled sweaty. Not attractive.

I definitely recommend Purification for in the laundry to give it a nice smell, and to help clean off all those yucky smells that tend to accumulate on our clothes. As for the vinegar in the laundry…well, I’ve used that for years for one main reason. My clothes and towels didn’t feel soft after washing. I didn’t want to use fabric softener, because it creates a film on the towels and makes them less absorbent, and also creates a film on the dryer lint trap. I had to keep washing the lint trap to make sure it didn’t cause any sort of over heating or worse, a fire. But, vinegar on itself can make clothes stinky, and it takes a bit for the vinegar smell to dissipate. Purification makes quick work of that smell, and knocks out all the musty/mildew smells that can exist in the front load washers. I highly recommend it.

*As always, these are my personal views. And this is really just one of the uses for Purification, but it’s the only one I have tested, so far.

NingXia

First up on the Young Living front is NingXia Red. This is a happy bottle of juice and oils that helps to promote good health. It’s full of lots of good stuff that are just generally good for you, like Wolfberry juice, blueberry juice, etc. I have been drinking 1/4 Cup of this every morning and evening. I’m not a fan of the texture, even though it’s really not that bad. The taste is good, but it’s almost a bit like a tomato juice in texture. I just don’t deal well with textures I’m not familiar with. So, I dilute it with just some water, maybe another 1/4 C and drink. For me personally, I found out that someone with RA was drinking it to help with that. Since I’m not able to do any RA meds right now, I thought what the heck. Either I get some juice into me for just general vitamin qualities, or it helps.

Turns out it actually helps. After just a few days I woke up with no pain. That’s just not a thing. And since my pain levels are down to almost a 0, my BP went down. My blood pressure is really connected to my pain levels. If I’m in a lot of pain I am really tense and my body is stressed, and my blood pressure shoots up. If I have little pain, my blood pressure is more normal. For the first time in months, my BP was normal today. 109/74. Is it the NingXia, or just a good half week? I don’t know. But, let’s just say I haven’t had a good week in about 10 years. lol It’s usually a good day, or a good afternoon. I’ll report back more on this once I’m farther in. It’s been less than a week on it at this point. My husband is drinking the same concoction once a day. He has a bad knee, and OA all over the place. Yesterday he squatted down to check the status of the Halloween candy and then got back up. Then he realized what he had just done. One questionable thing right now, is that he is in bed right now. I worry because his liver is easily annoyed. But, Wolfberry is supposedly good for the liver, so we’ll see how he does. Perhaps his body is trying to cleanse. We start very low on anything with oils for him, because I worry. So, we’ll see how he is. Perhaps he just isn’t sleeping well, and needs the rest. It’s also yucky weather out there, and his hands have been swollen lately. The OA might just be having a fit.

So, for now, NingXia seems like it’s great. I’ll continue to evaluate it going forward. I am happy with how my system is reacting to it right now, though. Anything that can give me even a short reprieve is great in my books.
