Jeddy’s Blend Helps Make Things – Just Right in The World

We have all felt that feeling when we find a solution to a huge problem that’s been plaguing us for a while. To say it’s like the weight of the world has been lifted seems too cliche. To say our cells find relief would be too simple too. It’s like all of a sudden at least for a little while everything is just right in the world. This feeling is compounded when it involves our children and we don’t know what to do to help them or alleviate their pain. 

With all of the stressors in life today we believe that our proprietary Jeddy’s Blend is a wonderful, easy and inexpensive way to get a little zen in your daily life. 

We are fortunate and pleased to offer Jeddy’s Blend to our customers, which is a complex and proprietary blend, originally created by one of our customers in her desperate desire to find a solution for her son Jeddy’s severe ADHD symptoms. His outbursts in school and at home including his emotional ups and downs were emotionally troubling and taxing. As a parent we will do anything for our children. In this case the solution was found in a blend of all natural essential oils. 

Unfortunately one of the solutions for emotionally exhausted parents is to put their child on medication because that’s the answer provided by a trusted doctor. The reality is sometimes it becomes a surrender to regain some level of sanity in the home in an effort to help their loved one not suffer. We are not taking a stand against medicating children but ask the question what if there is an easier healthier way. 

These days there are an increasing number of things in the world that create a tremendous amount of stimulation in developing young children that simply need an outlet to channel that energy. 

When I cook I get excited about adding all kinds of things to the recipe but we all know that if we just start throwing things in we’re not likely to have a happy experience with our family or guests. Jeddy’s Blend is a perfection of pure essential oils, meticulously sourced and carefully mixed with just the right % of each ingredient. The result is an efficacious, I’d even say, miraculous blend of essential oils that have helped hundreds if not thousands of children (AND ADULTS) cope a little better, sometimes a lot better with ADD, ADHD, Anxiety and other emotional stressors. 

We actually have a lot of stories from customers who love Jeddy’s Blend for other things, which I’m sure it does do. The magic ingredients of Jeddy’s Blend is not a secret but a specific mixture of those essential oils listed below. 

With the different stresses and conditions of schools these days and all of the homeschooling being done as a result of Covid-19 we personally believe no family should be without Jeddy’s Blend. Well for that matter, I joke with a high degree of seriousness, that maybe parents need it more than the kids. 

It’s so easy to use, the roller bottle making it even easier with children. Jeddy’s Blend can be applied to the feet and under the toes and then rub it in with your hands (you will also get the benefit of it when applying to others). You can also apply it to the back of the neck, spine and wrists. Diffusing it makes the entire environment you are diffusing in, as I said earlier, “just right in the world.”

 Jeddy’s Blend contains:

  • Lavender: Used for migraines, muscle spasms, insomnia, stress/tension, panic tension, and general nervousness.
  • Sweet Marjoram: Helps with insomnia, indigestion, anxiety, and muscle spasm.
  • Roman Chamomile: Commonly used for muscle spasms, anxiety, nervousness, and depression.
  • Ylang Ylang: Can improve circulation, insomnia, depression, and general stress.
  • Sandalwood: Helps with urinary infections, heavy legs, insomnia, and depression.
  • Vanilla: Used for nervousness, insomnia and restlessness, and nervous stomach.
  • Black Spruce: Can improve physical fatigue, mental exhaustion, anxiety and stress.
  • Rosewood: Great for nervousness, anxiety, stress-related conditions, and depression.
  • Blue German Chamomile: Often used for pain relief, muscle spasms, detoxification, and neuralgia.
  • Frankincense: Used to improve mental fatigue, nervousness, tension, and sometimes to ease frustrations due to the inability to communicate.
  • Vetiver: Commonly used to relieve nervous tension, restlessness, physical exhaustion, and irritability.
  • Patchouli: Helps with depression, irritability, and moodiness.
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil: Easily absorbed oil great for all ages used to dilute essential oils without drying out the skin.
