Oil Love (Chapter 4)

Since my last chapter, my collection has grown extensively. When my order comes in, I’m as giddy as a child on Christmas morning.

Hi. My name is Amanda Bossi and I am an Oil Addict. 

I am not ashamed.

Since I wrote last, there have been quite a few instances when Essential Oils have been a savior to me. I love sharing my adventures in the Oily World.

Here’s a few:

Bug Bite Buster– Somehow, someway my poor feet were devoured like they were on the buffet for mosquitoes or God-only-knows what kind of mutant bug.

At night, they would itch so bad that they felt like they were on fire. I tried everything from Lavender Oil, Hydrocortisone Cream, Apple Cider Vinegar, to Ice Packs. NOTHING was working. Finally, after 2 nights of no sleep and baking muffins at 2 am, I found a solution:

  • 1/2 of a shot glass of Rubbing Alcohol
  • 1 drop Lavender Oil
  • 2 drops Peppermint

I dipped a cotton ball in the solution and rubbed it on each bite in circles.

Within minutes I felt a cooling sensation and the annoying itch was gone. Hallejula! I finally found solace and could, at last, sleep.

Release the Negativity- So I ordered Young Living’s Release Blend mainly for my husband who has issues with his liver. After reading more into it, I was excited to find that even I could use it to release any negative energies stored in my own liver. I read that many times people have cry fests after application. I could use a good cry… Or so I thought.

Well, the night I got it, I opened it, and applied it. Needless to say, it was not pretty. Whatever you have built up, be prepared to have it all come out like vomit. I have been going through some personal issues and have been trying really hard to stay strong. Well, obviously I have not been because every emotion came spewing out. I was hysterically crying. I yelled. And shit, I even threw stuff.

But after the short-lived Hurricane Amanda happened, all I wanted was to be held. I wanted to feel comfort and peace.

This oil worked for sure. And I am glad it did. Now I feel I am ready to mend and heal.

When Counting Sheep Stops Working- Besides the 2 nights I layed awake contemplating cutting off my feet, my new found favorite sleep oil routine had been working.

Like any artist, all my creativity somehow comes out after the sun sets. Not only that, I am a woman and women’s minds are like spaghetti. Our minds do things and thinks things in groups of 1000 and work at warp speed. It’s like entangled noodles we are trying to pick up with a spork.

I get these spells when, forget it, my mind’s off switch is broken and the repair man took a vacation. I found a routine that seems to duct tape the off switch together which is good enough for me when I am desperate.

I use a spray of Lavender Oil on my bedding, diffuse Bergamot mixed with either Stress Away or Lavender, and use Valerian on neck and behind ears. This has allowed me to relax enough that I can fall asleep within an hour.

This brings me to my next Oily Cure:

Mental Stability & Focus- So as I said before about our brains being spaghetti, even during the day our brains can loose focus on tasks at hand or even just of what is important. Young Living’s Clarity Blend applied on wrists and brows, diffused, or worn in my necklace has helped tremendously.

Now to something yummy….

Homemade Pasta Sauce- Here is my not-so-secret recipe:

  • 8-10 Tomatoes of Your Choice ( I have used Roma, San Marzano, Pineapple, or Heilooms in batches)
  • 1/2 of a Large Onion
  • 1 Bell Pepper 

I cut all of these up and lay them on a cookie sheet. I then drizzle a mixture of:

  • Olive Oil
  • Minced Garlic
  • 1 drop Oregeno Vitality Oil
  • 1 drop Basil Vitality Oil
  • Dash of Salt and Pepper

Occasionally I will add Red Pepper Flakes or Sugar depending if I want a more sweeter or spicier sauce.

Bake on 425 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Pour into blender and blend until smooth. Place into mason jar and allow to cool on counter until cool. Place in fridge or freezer. 


Stay tuned for my next Oily Adventures!
