Spark Naturals Essential Oils - An Affordable Option








Spark Natural Essential Oils - An Affordable Option

Most of you who know me and have followed Riches to Rags by Dori know that I love Essential Oils. I have been using them in my family for a long time now. I have learned how to take care of my family and our health with oils. It is a wonderful feeling when you are able to help your child in the middle of the night with a fever, cough, cold and headache in the comfort of your home with something natural. My kids have learned about the oils and use them when they need them. They are also teaching others about the great benefits of Essential Oils.  They believe in them because they have worked for them. 



 When I created Jeddy's Blend (A Natural Alternative for ADHD, ADD, Autism and Anxiety) I started receiving thousands of emails from people all over the world who were desperate for a better way for their children then medication. I share my recipe because I want others to be able to take care of their family the way I have been able to. What I was hearing over and over though was that they couldn't afford to purchase the oils. Some are saving up what they can when their child needs it now. Everyone should  have the option to be able to afford Pure Essential Oils. There is an option now that I am happy to be able to share with you. 

Riches to Rags by Dori name is about my family who lost everything material during the recession. We lost our company, home, cars, etc, and we were suddenly without insurance.  That is a scary place to be when you have someone sick in your family and you can't afford to go to the doctors. I wish I had known about essential oils back then so I could have taken better care of my family. There are many people in this position today and this is a wonderful option that is now available for them. 

I am so excited to be able to tell you about a new company that is offering Certified Pure PharmaGrade Essential Oils called Spark Naturals. I have been using another company for a while which I still love and still use but, I have compared them and they are equal in their quality but for much cheaper. These are good quality oils that I highly recommend and wouldn't share it with you unless I thought they were good enough to use in my own family.

A few of my favorite things

These are a few of my favorite oils. There are so many to choose from but if I were to pick three these would be the first. 

With allergy season upon us these can be your new best friend. This triple threat creates a natural antihistamine. Here are a few protocols that you can use to treat allergy symptoms when they start. This is also safe for children. 


The Triple Threat

         Lemon             Lavender          Peppermint

1.  Put 3 drops ea. of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint in a gelatin capsule.  If you're not feeling relief in a 20 min. period, do it again.


2.  Rub the same combination of oils on your feet, then cup your hands under your nose and inhale the oils that remain on your hands.  I do this on my kids. 


3. Put 2 drops of each oil in a 1/4 cup juice or water and swish around your mouth for 10 - 20 seconds then swallow.  (only with pure oils please!)


GIVEAWAY!

I am very excited to do this Giveaway so you can see yourself how wonderful these oils are.

  23. I love essential oils and I'm excited to learn about this new brand. I don't have as many oils as I would like, as it's hard to fit them into our tight budget... We love peppermint oil for helping our 2 year old and 6 month old breathe more easily at night when they are congested. It also helps my husband with his snoring, which helps me get more sleep! And don't get me started on Lavendar... that's my go-to oil for lots of things around the house!!!

  121. I too am suddenly without insurance due to having to quit my job. My baby became very ill and was in the ICU on life support. Since then, u have used oils for a number of things but most often for staph problems we now have thanks to the hospital, my joint pain, diaper rash, and allergies. I'm working on trying to get a handle on my depression with them too.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I really appreciate that you've shared this alternative EO company with us, Dori! (As well as your sister, with her awesome Camp Wander blog!) I am currently unemployed and have a myriad of health issues. I scraped together enough to buy a small tin of "mini" sized oils from Camp Wander and was amazed at how much they helped me!! Knowing about Spark Naturals will allow me to possibly afford some EOs and, thus, cut down on my medical expenses. So from the bottom of my heart I say THANK YOU!!

  139. I've been using EO's throughout my house and for personal care (clove EO works wonderfully for tooth ache!) - but my VERY favorite story is how Oregano oil was an almost-instant pain reliever for a bad case of shingles I had in Feb. Topically applying oregano oil completely cut the pain for anywhere from 3-6 hrs at a time (depending on how severe the pain was). With the oregano oil, mega doses of Vit C and a high lysine diet, I was on the mend within a week, and symptom free by the end of 2 wks.

  157. I recently used peppermint to help my sinuses.
    Also, my son threw up & I used a combo of things from the family physician kit that I just purchased....I have to go back & write it all down to remember for next time. There was a horrible bug that kids were sick for several days throwing up many many times. My son only threw up twice in 24 hours & I really thing it was bc of the oils. Others in the house did not get sick probably bc of the on guard we used.

  159. EO's have changed my life, but I am finding them a bit expensive and would love to try another brand that is just as good but less. Currently I make my own "theives" oil for my hubby...he is having some tooth pain and the oil blend really works.
