Have you heard of anyone talking about elderberry recently? These amazing benefits make this a must have for your medicine cabinet!
Elderberries grow on elder bushes and are wonderfully tasty. But they are also wonderfully beneficial to your immunity! Traditionally they've been used to cleanse the stomach and bowels, fight against respiratory congestion, boost lymphatic drainage and boost immunity. In America, the most common species is Sambucus. The flowers from the elder bush, which are often made into tea, can also support your body against viruses.
How to Use Elderberry:
Adults: Elderberry D3fense is a combination of Echinacea, Royal Jelly, Olive Leaf, White Willow Bark and Vitamin D3 in a capsule, all which promote healthy immunity as well as restoring your body to health when you are under the weather. This can be taken daily to stay healthy all winter long! Learn more here.
Kids: Elderberry syrup is a sweet liquid form of elderberry that is easy and convenient for kids to use. Integrative Therapeutics Elderberry Syrup is a great tasting, natural berry with a high potency extract. This can also be taken daily to maintain strong immunity!
Both Elderberry D3fense and Integrative Therapeutics Elderberry Syrup are available at the Country Cupboard for purchase!
Grapefruit oil is becoming one of the most popular essential oils on the market. It doesn't just smell good, it IS good! I'm not sure about you, but I don't want to be without my daily drop of Grapefruit! Here's why:
Use Grapefruit oil for weight loss
Experimental research shows that diffusing Grapefruit oil may help to curb cravings. Additionally, when taken internally, Grapefruit can help to support blood sugar levels that are already in the normal range.*
Use Grapefruit oil for skin
Keep its lovely aroma with you all day and improve the appearance of your skin by incorporating Grapefruit oil into your skincare routine to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Remember though, as a citrus oil, the use of Grapefruit oil on the skin poses a risk for sun sensitivity, so avoid ultra-violet rays for at least 12 hours after applying Grapefruit to the skin.
Use Grapefruit oil to support a healthy metabolism*
Because it contains the chemical constituent limonene, Grapefruit essential oil has internal cleansing and purifying properties and gently cleanses the body with detoxifying benefits.* To take full advantage of these benefits, simply add one to two drops to a glass of water, and drink.
Use Grapefruit oil to create an uplifting environment
Feeling bored and sluggish at work in the afternoon? Try diffusing Grapefruit oil at your desk. Need a little pick-me-up in the morning? Place a drop of Grapefruit oil in your palms, rub your hands together, and inhale deeply to take in its energizing, delightful aroma.

For me, it creates a place of rest, comfort and safety! I reach for my diffuser when my day is tough and I need an extra boost. I feel so empowered to have something that can improve my health, calm and comfort me just with the beautiful scents of essential oils!
My favorite diffuser blends:
Rosemary and Spearmint for energy and focus.
Balance and Serenity for stress and calming.
Arborvitae, Melaleuca and OnGuard for immunity.
Vetiver and Petitgrain for sleep and rest.
Harvest Spice for a wonderful smelling house!
And just a little secret. One can never have too many diffusers. (Don't tell, but I have a diffuser in almost every room in my house!)

People often ask, “How do I use my Eucalyptus oil?" You’ll love what this cleansing, relaxing, and soothing essential oil can do for you.
Reason 1: Promotes relaxation
Diffusing Eucalyptus oil can help create a tranquil atmosphere in your home, while also decreasing feelings of tension and promoting relaxation.
Reason 2: Promotes feelings of clear breathing
Because it contains the chemical component eucalyptol, Eucalyptus oil is useful for creating a cooling vapor when applied to the skin or inhaled. When the seasons change, you can rub a few drops of Eucalyptus on your chest to promote feelings of open airways.
Reason 3: A cleansing agent
Combine Eucalyptus with Lemon and Peppermint oil in a spray bottle, and then use the mixture to wipe down surfaces in your kitchen, bathroom, or other common areas of your home. Not only will the essential oil mixture give you peace of mind concerning the nontoxic cleanliness of your home, but you’ll love the wonderful aroma that lingers after you finish.
Reason 4: Use in a soothing massage
Blend with Fractionated Coconut Oil and gently rub on the problem area and enjoy the cooling, soothing effects. The aroma of Eucalyptus will also help to clear the mind and calm feelings of tension and stress.
Reason 5: Clean and revitalize the skin
If your skin feels oily, consider adding a few drops of Eucalyptus to your daily moisturizer or toner to experience the oil’s skin-revitalizing benefits.
Reason 6: Support during menstruation
Due to its soothing, calming nature, Eucalyptus is frequently used to provide support during menstruation. Simply massaging Eucalyptus oil into the lower abdomen daily during menstruation.
