Lakeview Massage Studio
uses many hypoallergenic products.

Some of the products that we use in the studio are:

Young Living Essential Oils: Plants contain complex and powerful substances known as essential oils. These
are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. These distinctive components
defend plants from insects, harsh environmental conditions, and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Referred to as the "essence of the plant", pure essential oils not only protect
the plant, but also determine its aroma.
 
Essential oils have been used throughout time dating back to 4500BC. From perfumes and aromatherapy to cooking and medicinal purposes, essential oils have been used in everyday life for centuries. In modern days, research shows that pure essential oils can provide similar benefits to humans and animals that they give to plants.

Many oils, labeled as 'essential oils', are derived with harsh chemicals, diluted, or copied and produced in a lab. Cheap copies bring cheap results, and have the potential to be toxic. Therefore, it is imperative to take great care in choosing high-quality essential oils. Young Living Essential Oils are rated as meeting the highest industry standard that
qualifies them as "therapeutic grade". This means that health professionals choose them for promoting health and wellness. There are over 140 Young Living Essential Oils and blends. Ask to look through their catalog.

“This winter I purchased Lavender Lip Balm, hoping that it would help with my cracked and peeling lips. I'm happy to say that after regular use, my lips have all but stopped cracking and peeling. It stays on great, doesn't lick off, doesn't have a nasty taste, and just knowing that it has lavender's natural healing properties has taken a load off my mind.”

DO YOU KNOW WHAT AN ESSENTIAL OIL IS:

You'll be amazed to find out that it takes 'tons' of plant leaves, petals, stems and etc, to produce one small bottle of these oils.  So it is the concentrated part of the plant.  The 'essence' of the plant.

These are not the same type of oils you purchase in the chain stores or your grocer.  Most of those have alcohol and/or chemicals in them.  These are 100% pure.  Very beneficial.

I personally use:  Thieves oil blend (cinnamon, clove, lemon, rosemary & eucalyptus) in my diffuser every day to help kill germs and bacteria during these winter months when our houses are so closed up.  I only use one drop of oil in the distilled water. One bottle has lasted me the whole winter!  And, I have not had a cold this winter!
 
I also use Theives in a spray bottle, which I spray in my treatment rooms and throughout my home to keep down the germs being brought in.  Also you are inhaling a natural product and not some chemical air freshner, and, it is safe for our family and pets!

Cleaning with Essential Oils

It can be daunting to live a healthier lifestyle, and one of the last areas you may think to change is your cleaning products. Most modern cleaning products require certain chemicals and surfactants (or cleansing agents) to make them work, and you should know what they are and their potential affects. It’s also important to find ways to limit your exposure to these toxins, and learn about safe, effective alternatives.

Here’s a quick run-down of some common cleaning chemicals, along with some of the many places you may see them:
  • DEA (Diethanolamine)—Found in more than 600 home and personal care products, such as shampoos, conditioners, bubble baths, lotions, cosmetics, soaps, laundry and dishwashing detergents. Suspected of carcinogenic activity (causing or contributing to cancer) or of being potentially dangerous or hazardous to health.

  • Propylene Glycol—The main ingredient found in anti-freeze; also common in shampoos, deodorants, cosmetics, lotions, toothpastes, processed foods, baby wipes, and many more personal care items. Implicated in contact dermatitis, kidney damage, and liver abnormalities; can inhibit skin cell growth in human tests and can damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin, and surface damage.

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)—Industrial uses include concrete floor cleaners, engine degreasers, and car wash detergents. Also found in shampoos, liquid soaps, conditioners, cleansers, toothpaste, and children’s personal care products. SLS is found in nearly all toothpastes, and is absorbed through skin contact and retained for up to five days.

  • Talc—Chemically similar to asbestos, talc has been inked to ovarian cancer. It’s found in many body and baby powders, as well as many cosmetics.

  • Alcohol—Most mouthwash products have a higher alcohol content than most alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, etc). Mouthwash products with alcoholic content greater than 25 percent have been linked to cancers of the mouth, tongue, and throat. Alcohol acts as a solvent inside the mouth, making tissues more vulnerable to carcinogens.

Essential Oil Cleaning Solutions

 

It may not be possible or cost effective to avoid all of these chemicals in your cleaning and personal care products, but there are plenty of ways to reduce your family’s exposure to them. Using therapeutic-grade essential oils, as a natural household cleaner, is a safe, effective alternative to many store-bought cleaning products. Some of the best essential oils for cleaning include cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, thyme, spruce, lemon, lemongrass, and grapefruit. Try some of the following ideas for a powerful, natural clean:
 

Household cleaner:

  • Fill a spray bottle with water and a squirt of dishwashing soap.
  • Add 3–5 drops each of lavender, lemon, and pine essential oils.
  • Shake well.

Floor cleaner:

  • Add 1/4 cup white vinegar to a bucket of water.
  • Add 5–10 drops lemon, pine, spruce, melaleuca, or Purification essential oil.

Fighting dust mites:

  • Recent research has shown that eucalyptus essential oil kills dust mites that live in bedding.
  • Add 25 drops of eucalyptus essential oil to each load of laundry for an effective dust mite deterrent.

Hot tubs and saunas:

  • Use 3 drops per person of lavender, cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, thyme, lemon, or grapefruit to disinfect and freshen the water.
  • For saunas, add several drops rosemary, thyme, pine, or lavender to a spray bottle with water and spray surfaces. This water can also be used to splash onto hot sauna stones.

Kitchens and bathrooms:

  • Mix into 1 quart water: 2 drops rosemary, 4 drops lemon, 3 drops eucalyptus, and 4 drops lavender.
  • Shake well and put into a spray bottle. Shake again before using.

Window cleaner:

  • Mix in 1 quart spray bottle: 1 cup White Vinegar, 10-15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil, water.
  • Mix vinegar and water in spray bottle.
  • Add essential oil.
  • Shake and use.

Stain Removal:

  • Use a drop or two of lemon essential oil on stains.
  • Let stand and rub off with a clean cloth or throw into laundry cycle.

In the Dryer:

  • Instead of using toxic and irritating softening sheets in the dryer, toss in a dampened washcloth with 10 drops of lavender, lemon, melaleuca, bergamot, or other oils added.
  • While the oils will not reduce static cling, they will impart a lovely fragrance to the clothes.
