If you follow me on Facebook you know that Spark Naturals has an Item of the Week that gives you a discount on top of the 10% off you get when you use coupon code “clothelsinechic.” But I’m not always great at telling you what you could use the oils for, so I thought I would start doing that! So, here it goes . . .
Birch is an amazing pain relieving oil. But, it should not be used by anyone that can’t use aspirin because it contains methyl salicylate (the natural form of the active ingredient in aspirin). This would include kids, people with epilepsy, pregnant women and anyone on blood thinners. It comes with a special childproof top to remind you!
Here are a couple ways I use birch . . .
I run with my dad 3 mornings a week. I did something to my knee the other day and it was so sore . . . throbbing sore . . . so I grabbed my Birch EO and some Emu Oil (my dad swears by this stuff) and massaged it into my knee. The throbbing went a way! Then, before I went to bed I rubbed some of my Vitamin E lotion that I added Birch to on and around my knee, it worked like a charm . . . I was able to enjoy my father/daughter bonding run pain-free this morning!
Birch is also in the Relief – Headache Blend . . . I made a roller out of this (you can purchase the roller bottles here) here is the link to the video on how to make a roller bottle for you too! You could also add a couple drops of this blend or Birch to your shampoo when you are showering to relieve tough headaches.
That is how I use birch . . . now hurry up and order yours before the week is done! Don’t forget to use coupon code “clotheslinechic” to get an extra 10% off your order!
