11 Household Uses For Essential Oils

Though essential oils have been around for hundreds (and possibly even thousands) of years, it is only recently that they have begun to receive widespread attention and popularity. In recognition of their vast and varied benefits and uses, many people have started to look for ways to incorporate essential oils into their everyday lives. 

Are you interested in learning more about how to use essential oils in your home? As a proud Young Living™ Essential Oils distributor at the Lake of the Ozarks, the Lime in the Coconut Specialty Compounding Pharmacy is here to help educate you on some of the different in-home uses for essential oils. You might be surprised by their versatility!

11 Household Uses For Essential Oils
  1. Deodorize Carpets - Mix a cup of baking soda with 5-6 drops of essential oil, and sprinkle onto your carpet. The baking soda will absorb the unpleasant odor, and the essential oil will leave a fresh one in its place. Vacuum as usual. (Source: Quick & Dirty Tips)
  2. Refrigerator Air Freshener - Mix bergamot, lemongrass, grapefruit, or lime essential oil into a box of baking soda and place in your fridge to eliminate unpleasant smells. (Source: Natural Living Ideas)
  3. Bathroom Air Freshener - Place 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil on the inside of a new toilet paper roll every time you replace it. Every time it's used, it will release the fresh scent into the air. (Source: Quick & Dirty Tips)
  4. Reusable Disinfecting Wipes - Instead of constantly throwing used wipes away, make your own reusable natural cleaning wipes by soaking clean wash cloths in a homemade solution of water, white vinegar, and essential oils. (Source: Wise Bread)
  5. Germ Destroyer - Dilute a few drops of lavender or melaleuca essential oil to a water bottle and spray down your gym bag, hotel room, door handles, or other potential germ hot spots. (Source: One Good Thing)
  6. Insect Deterrent - Diffuse peppermint, lemongrass, citronella, lavender, or rosemary essential oil to deter flying insects. (Source: Natural Living Ideas)
  7. Laundry Detergent - There are lots of recipes for homemade laundry soap and fabric softener online. Add a fresh scent to your homemade creation by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil. (Source: Wise Bread)
  8. Sponge Disinfectant - Add a few drops of lemon essential oils to your dish sponge to disinfect it in between uses. (Source: Natural Living Ideas)
  9. Stress Reliever - Add a few drops of chamomile or lavender oil to your bath water. (Source: Natural Living Ideas)
  10. Shoe Deodorizer - Place a few drops of your favorite essential oil on cotton balls, and put one or two cotton balls in each smelly shoe. (Source: One Good Thing)
  11. Floor Cleaner - Make your own hardwood floor cleaner. Fill a large jug with water, leaving room for 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1/4 cup of castile soap, and 30 drops of lemon essential oil. When it's time to clean your floors, combine one cup of this solution with one gallon of hot water. (Source: Wise Bread)

Compounding For Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetes is becoming an increasingly common disease in the United States. According to the most CDC's most recent statistics, 29.1 million Americans (9.3% of the population) suffer from this disease. We hear about it so frequently that the term is almost becoming passe - some people barely give a second thought when they learn that someone they know has been diagnosed with diabetes. Nevertheless, diabetes is still a serious disease with significant challenges, and it is important that it be acknowledged as such.

Keep reading to learn more about diabetes and some of the ways your friends at the Lime in the Coconut Specialty Compounding Pharmacy may be able to treat its symptoms.

What Is Diabetes?

Diabetes (or Diabetes Mellitus) is a disease in which your blood sugar (or blood glucose) levels are abnormally and/or dangerously high. Glucose (which is essentially sugar) enters our system via the foods we eat. In a healthy person, the pancreas produces a hormone called insulin that helps metabolize glucose so that it can be turned into usable energy. In a diabetic person, the body either cannot produce insulin or cannot use insulin effectively. As a result, the glucose is not metabolized, which means that the blood sugar levels are not reduced. 

Blood sugar levels that remain high over an extended period of time can lead to a variety of serious health problems, including stroke, heart disease, eye damage, kidney damage, damage to the nervous system, and potentially even the need to amputate a limb.

There are two primary forms of diabetes: "type 1" and "type 2." Type 1 diabetes occurs in children, and type 2 diabetes (sometimes called "adult onset" diabetes) manifests later in life.

Living With Diabetes

Unfortunately, diabetes can never be truly cured. However, there are ways patients can work their condition to minimize symptoms and their associated pain or discomfort. This is especially applicable to patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

The most important thing you can do to reduce symptoms of diabetes is to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Eating well, exercising regularly, and maintaining a healthy weight will help prevent excess glucose from building up in your body's systems.

Combating Diabetic Neuropathy

Of the most uncomfortable symptoms of diabetes is known as "diabetic neuropathy." Consistently high glucose levels can damage nerve endings throughout the body. Extremities such as feet and legs are especially vulnerable. 

Stinging, burning, itching, and tingling are common sensations that are associated with diabetic neuropathy. According to the Mayo Clinic, patients may also experience problems with their digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels, and heart.

Topical Pain Creams For Diabetic Neuropathy

If you are experiencing painful diabetic neuropathy, topical pain relief may be a good option for you. Diabetic neuropathy was traditionally treated with oral pain relievers, but as is often the case with standardized medications, patients frequently suffered unpleasant side effects when taking their prescribed doses.

We can compound a topical pain cream designed specifically to assist with your unique situation. By targeting the painful area directly, we can minimize the side effects that may otherwise result from requiring the medication to pass through your digestive system before it can reach the targeted location.

The Lime In The Coconut Is Here For You!

While there may not be an official cure for diabetes, there are definitely ways to reduce the challenges of living with this disease. If you would like more information about our topical pain creams or how compounding may be able to benefit your specific situation, please reach out to our Lake of the Ozarks compounding pharmacy. We would be honored to help you in any way we can!

Obesity: More Than A Cosmetic Problem (Part 4)

A Lesser-Known Impact Of Obesity

Hemoglobin A1C is extremely useful in revealing what the "average" blood sugar has been over the previous ninety days. This is the same standard laboratory measurement used to measure blood sugar control in diabetes.

What many people may not be aware of is the fact that hemoglobin A1C has important implications for your brain health.

In a landmark study published in the journal Neurology, the researches documented that elevated hemoglobin A1C is associated with changes in brain size.

The study showed researchers looking at MRI's to determine which lab test correlated best with brain atrophy, and found that the hemoglobin A1C demonstrated the most powerful relationship. They commented:
"When comparing the degree of brain tissue loss in those individuals with the lowest hemoglobin A1C (4.4 - 5.2) to those having the highest hemoglobin A1C (5.9 - 9.0), the brain loss in those with the highest hemoglobin A1C was almost doubled during a six year period." (emphasis added)
Metaid can help lower your hemoglobin A1C and save your brain.
