YL Essential Oils Every Day Oils Collection continued…..PanAway

What a great blend of oils. This is key to pain relief in home and barn.

PanAway is blended with: Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint.

* This oil can be used in dealing with problems relating to the nervous system and muscles and bones.

How do I use it? Let me count the ways.

1) This past march I slipped on the ice feeding horses and  badly sprained my wrist. Xrays said not break but I think it might have been a hair line. Regardless once I got my feeding done I got to the house and asked kids to get me the PanAway. First thing to come to mind.

I applied it to the site and got  cold pac and off to emerg room.  I felt a soothing relief immediatly. Dr asked  what the smell was, (ben gay type…)  I filled him in , he was impressed .  Said this was a good thing to have in a first aid cabinet!

2) After a Zumba work out! all over followed up by  ortho ease or sport massage oil. Saves me from any overly sore spots till I’m fit. After fit then its relaxing.

3) Swelling due to any strain , or ache or pain in the home and barn.

4) with a house full of women, 4 girls , it is quite helpful for menstrual periods. The  smell is up lifting too.

Lavender is a great healer of wounds, skin irritations of many sorts  and emotions.

How do I use it? Let me count the ways.

1)Defuse Defuse Defuse…

2)  bug bites, poison ivy, anything itchy. Lavender seems to calm things right down.

3) burns from the oven or other items. Its the go to oil in my house.

4) Sunburn,  a great calming effect on  hot skin.

Hi everyone,  welcome to  the continuing ed portion of the news lettter. If you are here you are on the right track. Congrats!

Thieves is a main stay for boositng the Immune system.

So how do I use it? Let me count the ways!

1)A few drops on my tooth brush after I brush with Theives tooth paste( # 3744). This is my way of countering any  gum desease or tooth decay between  dental visits. Not to mention its very exhilerating. Thieves packs a punch!

2) up to 5 drops depending on if im fighting something or  not,  in a shot of  Nig Xia Red drink(# 4700) it was a big part of my pre and post surgury  self treatment for Melanoma in Nov ’11

My hubby uses it daily with a shot of Nig Xia Red as an immune boost. My kids use the spray and hand sanitizer  in school and at home.

3) a drop  or 2 on a sponge to clean counters is awsome!

3) a drop or two on a tissue and put into a vacuum bag prior to cleaning  is a great way to freshen the air.

4)I use its extended family of products in the house to clean and wash with.

5) In the barn it is a go to for abcesses. It will draw out anything. Back in  winter ’11-’12 i had a horse show up lame.  Very lame, very odd. No swelling in leg so I  deduced it was a hoof. As he was with out shoes I thought  maybe a bruise  from ice etc.www.youngliving.org/sableview for more details.

I began applying Thieves to the white line ,massaged in and in a few days he was  sound ,  when farreir came next time to trim , he found an area that showed abcess grown out. Too Cool!

Watching Troubadour grow, and allowing him to develop

Mr personality! You lookin’ at me? of course you are!

Today , a day off 2 months old, I took Tru out with his Mom, and big friend Popeye. I lead Sarah off Pop and the little  guy followed along. We traveled up the rd a bit to the trail head and  had a couple trots and a couple  breaks to munch on grass.  Bugs were horrific.

When  Tru found an opening  on the way home he decided to be adventurous and scoot ahead of us.  Too funny!   So great to see him explore uninhibited. He is developing so well. He is confident in most things. Still has an opinion which I acknowledge and move through if need be.

On our rd ride back to barn he decided he would lead us home. Popeye looked at him like , “Yeah right, shove over and get back in line”. Pop  stuck his nose out to Tru’s butt and shoved him lighlty. Tru took the hint and moved over and let us thru and he snuck back in behind Mom.

He loves Poppy and has a healthy respect for his size( in comparison). In fact I think he really looks up to him. I love going to the barn and seeing Sarah, Tru and Pop sharing a stall together, just chillin’ and staying cool.

Allowing Tru to  grow and explore and devolop as naturally as possible is such a gift. Im so happy I know what I know. Raised Sarah( Mom) the same way but I know more now and have a real level of confidence in “My way” of doing things, “Hybrid Horsemanship”, than I did then ( 8 yrs ago).

Tru is teaching me already. What works and then again what doesn’t. Then, how to find a way that works for him while still not  micro managing.

I can totally  understand how easy that would be and  how much more time effecient it would be … but not gonna happen here! We will take the time it takes!

Stay tuned for more updates!

 

 

 

Proud to see them moving on!

Lots of time and thought and emotion has gone into a few select horses who have crossed my path over the last yr. Im happy to say that the last two are readying to move on in their lives with their owners or a new owner.

Support, wisdom and insight can be given only so long and then  everyone needs to step up and out and find how to make it their own. So much potential for  these horses but as not mine I have to also let go and say thank you to them  for lessons learned: Life lessons, horsemanship lessons, and managing humans lessons! the toughest of all.  The horses are the easy part! 

Everyone is on their own journey and  I can see so much more that these humans can gain from these partners they have. Bottom line is, it is not the right time, the students aren’t ready.  This is such a frusteration for me but again a lesson , acknowledging what I know and accepting what is. Tough!

I am very happy to say well done to the horses and best of luck going forward. Never stop teaching  your humans, whomever they may be, especially the hard lessons they really need !

 

 

 

 

Acknowledged by “Proof in the pudding”

Gotta love it when things just come together. Today  I was driving down the rd to go pick up one of my kids and saw a car stopped in middle of the rd actually backing up to view something. It was my Nieghbor, and I knew wat she was looking at , Little Tru .  He was alone, not really but single in and area of the field  by a  stack jump . He was clearly looking at how to manuver over  it,  trying to figure its purpose: pawing, sniffing etc. Gotta love his curiosity.

Later in the day after feed time, I was readying for clinic this weekend at the farm and  had my daughter in barn with me. She  bagan to play with Bubba in stall and went to pick up his hoofs.  I have introduced this already and  it is quite good but he is smart! No news huh?

Marg was being all soft and  touchy feely.  He likes a solid feel. Not hard but not  fishy either. He was free in stall so  when he felt her insecurity he knew he could play his game. Its not a bad game but still a game:  foot pulled away, lean etc.

I said , “hold on Marg, this isn’t what I wanted to get into but…”.

I got his little halter and  get down line and  played scatches first then  showed marg howto approach for foot.   solid feel.  like you know hat your doing. LOL!  once she  got her confidence gogn  she had it up and down 5-6 times with no issues. and rested it back down.  This was with all 4′s. Hinds are getting really good.   We brush  a solid feel down his legs first  a few good  trombones so to speak, and then a solid feel round his fetlock and up he comes.

In time we will try  our snappy leg routine …. LOL.

Anyway , while we had him in a thinking mind. I had a thought to get him wormed. I was due to worm him in the next 10 days or so at 8 weeks.  I felt it was a good time to  do this . Tru is quite big and advanced, I felt sure he could handle it.  New protocol is at 2 months not 1 .

Great to see my prep with tube was all for the good.  I got it , held it by his mouth, he licked it into his mouth, I gave him his dose. Done!  How awesome to have things just go so smoothly!  Very proud of everyone involved.  Pats on the back to me too.

Life is good!
