Hard Working, Versatile Essential Oils That Are Must Haves in the Pantry

Hard Working, Versatile Essential Oils That Are Must Haves in the Pantry

After a season of focusing more closely on immunity and recovery from serious illnesses, these hard working and versatile essential oils have risen to the top of the list and are a must have in your pantry: 

Eucalyptus and Peppermint - Breathe in the fresh smell of eucalyptus and mint to open up your airways and help your body heal from respiratory illnesses. Blend peppermint oil and a carrier oil and place on your scalp and/or neck and temples to relieve headaches. You can spray peppermint + carrier oil all over your body to minimize aches and pain and fever. Peppermint can also alleviate nausea when rubbed on your stomach. 

Thyme, Orange, Clove and Frankincense - This essential oil blend is also called Longevity from Young Living contains the highest antioxidant and DNA-protecting oils. This blend promotes longevity and prevents premature aging. This blend also stimulates the endocrine system for greater energy flow to the right hemisphere of the brain, activating creativity, motivation and focus. This can help strengthen commitment to purpose, desire, and intentions until you realize your goals.

Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary - This blend of oils, called Thieves, is a workhorse for colds and flus. It is the most amazing blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-infectious essential oils. Rub directly on your chest, neck, throat, behind your ears to combat seasonal illness and unknown flus. 

Thyme, Oregano and Geranium - Studies are showing these oils support respiratory and lung health and have extensively been used for centuries. These oils may also be beneficial in helping to overcome fatigue and exhaustion after illness. This therapeutic mix of oils can be placed on your spine and rubbed on your back with carrier oil to assist the body’s ability to fight infection and draw out impurities.

One of the most common & effective ways to use oils is topically on your feet, spine, chest and stomach. Incorporating essential oils into your daily routine is a simple action with lots of impact on your overall wellness. Make sure to use a carrier oil of fractionated coconut oil, almond oil or jojoba to dilute strong oils to prevent skin sensitivities.

It absolutely does matter where you get your oils, so don’t just pick them up at any grocery store. Lots of oils will expire and are loaded with impure fillers even though the oil may smell good, so make sure you’re using high quality therapeutic grade essential oils for the very best health results.

We choose Young Living due to their extensive experience in farming & distilling and their Seed to Seal guarantee and that the products carry properties from Mother Nature - not made in a lab.

ALL Children Have the Right to BREATHE FREE at CA Schools

ALL Children Have the Right to BREATHE FREE at CA Schools

Today is a gift. Inhale the beauty and exhale any pain. 


I’ve launched the most important campaign of my lifetime to empower ALL California parents to gain a more efficient and accessible student mask exemption and help their children BREATHE FREE. The campaign was inspired by a sweet boy that lost his mom almost a year ago and has met incredible life challenges. 

He does not wish to wear a mask or any face covering and just wants to feel normal again. According to CDPH guidelines, he should be exempt from all face coverings with his condition(s).

He is turning 12 today. 

I promised him I would advocate for him and help him BREATHE FREE at school for his birthday present. I also promised his amazing mom, who was my dear friend, that I would look after him while she was in Heaven.

Along this journey, I have met other parents who are crying desperately for help to get their child a valid medical and/or mental health mask exemption honored. They have been unable to gain a Doctor’s note and/or reasonable cooperation from school leaders. 

An autistic child in Lake Forest.

A 3yr old in Los Angeles with growth delays.

Adopted twins from Haiti with social anxiety and learning disabilities. 

A boy who is a carrier of sickle cell trait (SCT). Reduction of oxygen puts him at risks associated with SCT.

Child with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from a drowning incident. The mask subconsciously reminds her of being suffocated under water.

And there are many other stories of children with new mental health conditions including anxiety, depression and even suicidal ideation. 

What Can Parents Do to Protect their Children?

If you are a parent that wishes to submit a student mask exemption via parent declaration form, please click on Parent Forms at CuraWaves.com. Then, if your Doctor refuses to write a mask exemption (majority of CA Doctor’s will not write mask exemption letters at this time), bring in copies of your medical records or statement from the Doctor of your child’s diagnosis and attach with your letter to your school admin and cc: your local school district representative or private school board president.

What Does Science and Data Show About Children and Masks?

Many notable physicians and healthcare providers agree that the science clearly shows that the statistical risks of COVID-19 to children does not outweigh the general medical and/or mental health harms of face masks and/or face shields.

Face coverings cause direct harm by increasing anxiety, social anxiety, depression, learning disorders, and suicidal ideation. The harm caused may be long lasting. An improperly worn mask may even increase risk of infection. Based upon CDC data, children recover well from COVID-19 and statistically have zero percent chance of death. Children recover from COVID-19 with similar numbers as the seasonal flu.

Medical evidence also shows that asymptomatic children do not spread COVID-19. Data also shows that over 90% of all teachers in schools are vaccinated against COVID-19 and are not at risk for serious illness.

Any underlying conditions, such as, but not limited to the following, can cause greater harm to students wearing a face mask and/or face shield:

Asthma, Anxiety, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Conduct Disorder, Depression, Developmental Disabilities, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, Fragile X Syndrome, Hearing Loss, Hemophilia, Intellectual Disability, Language Disorders, Learning Disorders, Muscular Dystrophy, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Sickle Cell Disease, Spina Bifida, Tourette Syndrome, and/or Vision Loss. 

The Time is NOW!

With a mountain of scientific literature, legal precedent and empirical evidence from other schools that support mask optional policies throughout the United States, it’s time for California to take bigger steps towards moving our schools towards normalcy and let children BREATHE FREE. Especially to protect our children’s mental health and wellness! 

If you need additional help, please email laura@curawaves.com 

Please note: This is uncharted territory for California parents and therefore, we do not and can not guarantee any results. Please keep moving forward and making your demands heard. This process is best between the adults as we work to resolve the injustices in a timely and respectful manner. We will continue to update documents as we learn more information throughout the BREATHE FREE campaign.

FREEDOM Poem Written by 14yr old

You Don’t Speak For Me

By Cienna Richardson, 14 years old


This discrimination 

Is a representation

Of a violation 

Of my right

To fight

To choose

And not have to lose


For now or the years to come

I should be allowed to decide 

Without having to hide

My values

Because I’m allowed to choose

My body my choice 

I have a voice 

Don’t listen to me 

And you will see 

What a fuss I will make

If you try to force me to take

Something I don’t want in me

I have a right to freedom you see

To ignore crazy mandates 

That we the people hate

Now you see 

You don’t speak for me

Every person has a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
