Welcome to the January edition of e-zine which aims to provide you with fun and interesting information about using essential oils in everyday life.

Essential Bliss is dedicated to assisting you with your essential oil and aromatherapy questions.

As you may have seen and heard in the media, they city where I live - Brisbane, Australia has been inundated with floods, including loss of lives - human and animal. Many other parts of Australia have been experiencing flooding too.

If you have experienced this terrible adversity, my heart and thoughts go out to you. I send you healing love.

Luckily, we weren't directly affected by the floods and I am happy to report that my family and I are safe and well.

One of the most awesome things that have come out of this tragedy/disaster are the thousands of volunteers that helped with the clean up. I, along with over 23 000 other people in Brisbane, spent the weekend helping clean, throw out, and assist people in many other ways through their loss.

During the clean up, I had my essential oils on hand to protect myself and other volunteers who were happy to try them from all the hidden nasties such as bacteria, viruses, and mould. Mud is a breeding ground for illness and disease. I wasn't taking any chances. Read my story below about how you can protect yourself in times of need.

On a different note, don't forget, the Essential Oil Goddess Blog has been a great addition to the website. There has been lots of interaction and please do leave a comment if you would like to. Also, please subscribe to the updates to make sure you don't miss a thing!

Feature Article...

Floods, Clean Up and Essential Oils

So much devastation occurred during the floods, but now it is time to clean up, get organised and get on with it. Even if you haven't been in a flood, this information can be used anytime you clean anything.

We have become a bacteria obssessed society. Just after the floods subsided, anti-bacterial washes were a rarity to find on supermarket shelf. People are scared of the potential lethal bacteria and viruses that may reside in the air, the mud or on ourselves after being in affected areas.

Now, I am NOT a doctor or microbiologist, but what I can tell you is that the antibacterial products you buy from the supermarket can potentially add to the problem, based on two reasons:

  1. Antibacterial washes are standardised, so the "super" bacteria that can survive its wrath, and become just that - stronger and superior - surviving almost any antibacterial solution you put in its way.
  2. The second thing is that those washes are full of other chemicals such as sodium laurel sulphate (used as engine degreaser in the real world) and other harmful chemicals.
So what do we do?

Essential oils come from NATURE! There is no standardisation of the plant. The quality of the essential oil depends on weather conditions, amount of water, temperature, soil each "batch" of essential oil has slightly different amounts of chemical compounds. This makes it very difficult for bacteria and viruses to adapt (as they able to in most antibacterial products, antibiotics and similar products).

So, which essential oils to use? PLEASE NOTE: Do a patch test on surfaces first if you are unsure if it will affect the surface. Here are some simple ways to use a range of essential oils:

Mould Killer
You may have seen bleach being recommended for mould removal. Two issues: 1. IT'S TOXIC 2. It BLEACHES mould, (so you can't see it) but doesn't kill spores, so the mould returns. This recipe is great in the bathroom, shower, toilet, walls - anything where you want to get rid of mould. It's awesome!

In a 400mL trigger spray bottle (preferably glass as essential oils "eat" plastic over time) add the following:

200mL water 200mL white vinegar 3 drops lemon essential oil 3 drops Thieves* essential oil

Shake and Spray onto affected area and wipe off. Easy!

Shower Scrub
Sprinkle shower recess with bicarb soda. Spray with a (shaken)mix of 200mL white vinegar and 2 drops of Thieves* and 1 drop of clove essential oil until it foams. Use a scourer to remove stains, mould etc. Rinse with pure water.

Surface Cleaner
Fill a 400mL trigger spray bottle with water and add 5 drops of Purification* Shake to mix each time you use it. Great for kitchen benches.

Do you have any fabulous essential oil recipes? Pleae drop me a line including permission to publish in your message. Thanks!

There is no need to include harsh chemicals. A few antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral essential oils is all you need and some natural solvents such as vinegar and bicarb soda. Your nose, lungs and body and that of your family will love you for it.

Important: Jen uses and recommends ONLY Young Living Essential Oils. All the information above is based on using Young Living Essential Oils - The World Leaders in Essential Oils. *Young Living Essential Oil Blend.

Immupower: Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Of the Month


ImmuPower essential oil blend is one of the most under-estimated essential oil blends. If you have been affected by floods and have mud, stagnant water and damaged items, with potential to harbour bacteria and viruses or any unclean area, I urge you to consider ImmuPower to keep you and your family protected.

The Essential Oils Desk Reference states that "ImmuPower strengthens immunity and DNA repair in the cells. It is strongly antiseptic and anti-infectious."


Cistus, Frankincense, Oregano, Idaho Tansy, Cumin, Clove, Hyssop, Ravensara, Mountain Savoury


Use with caution in pregnancy. Use with caution if susceptible ti epilepy (small amounts or in dilution). Do not use on children younger than 18 months. Could possibly result in skin irritation (dilution may be necessary).


Carolyn L. Mein's Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils is a great reference for emotions. ImmuPower helps support:

  • Self-sacrifice

Immupower is an amazing essential oil that I have used many times when my 14 year old son has been ill. Just after Christmas, he came home, after being away for a week, with a horrendous cold. I dropped Immupower along his spine before he went to bed and he woke up the next day 90% better.

I repeated this twice the next day and he was back to his usual healthy self the following day. When an infection or virus takes hold, this is the essential oil blend I make sure I include in my regimen.

In flood affected areas, I would also suggest cold air diffusing ImmuPower to help keep the area fresh and clean.

The book, Ultimate Balance Infusing the Vibrational Energy of Essential Oils into Chakras, Meridians and Organs states that the following conditions might indicate that your immune system needs support:

  • Runny or drippy nose
  • Catching a cold at the beginning of winter
  • Mucous-producing cough
  • Frequent infections (ear, sinus, lung, skin, bladder, kidney, bladder etc)
  • Frequent colds or flu
  • Wounds heal slowly
  • Swollen lymph glands, tonsils, adnoids or appendix
Don't forget, if in doubt, seek medical advice FIRST.
