YLEO Soap & Shampoo – Post Surgery

ShampooGoing through back surgery and being unable to take a shower or wash hair for several weeks following surgery, the family of this elderly man used YLEO Lavender bar soap and some lavender shampoo and conditioner. Preparation for the sponge bath included two basins of water and two fresh washcloths. One is used to wet and wash the body. The other is used to rinse the body after applying soap. The person receiving the sponge bath commented how quickly and easily the soap washed off his skin and how much cleaner he felt following a five-day hospital stay. Afterwards Lavender Hand and Body Lotion was applied to the entire body to help moisturize the skin.

The next project was washing his hair. As a wearing a back brace with clear post operative instructions not to bend at the waist outside of an upright sitting position. The care giver had him sit on a chair in front of the kitchen sink. In preparation for washing hair, they gathered together a blow dryer,  YLEO shampoo, conditioner, a spray bottle for water, a washcloth to sponge the scalp and a tall glass of water to dampen and rinse his long hair. First the caregiver use the spray bottle to dampen the top of the head. Next, shampoo was applied to the top of the head and worked into the scalp. To rinse the shampoo, the spray bottle was again used. A washcloth was also used to sponge any remaining soap from the scalp area followed by another round of water from the spray bottle. The long hair was dunked into a glass of water. Once wet, shampoo was again applied only to the long hair and rinsed using the glass of water. Once this was complete the entire head and length of the hair was again rinsed using the spray bottle. The processes was repeated when applying conditioner to the hair. The caregiver blew dry his hair for warmth and personal comfort. Again, the process went very quickly and easily and the man commented on how good his hair both looked and felt.

What a gift to have access to such high quality personal care products.

Until next time . . .

Animalscents: A Cat’s Leg

cat-32074_1280Flutter, our orange tabby, disappeared three weeks before we moved. In the middle of a heavy snow fall, three weeks after we moved, we went back to our former house. Some incredible person had found Flutter the night before and blocked her in an open garage area with some food, water and blankets. We found her very thin, dehydrated and with a cyst on her back leg.

Immediately we got some food (we prepare our cats’ food using ground chicken or turkey mixed with grains and fresh vegetables) into her when ever she asked for it, as she was able to eat only small amounts of food at a time. We also added YLEO mineral essence to her meals as well as Sulferzyme, vitamin C and enzymes. Then we put Animal Scents on her leg.

After a few days the cyst ruptured out, so we kept applying the aAnimalscents. Within a few more days the score on her leg was nearly healed over and the pain had significantly decreased. The minerals helped her regain her strength and now, a week and a half later she is walking on all four legs. There is only a very small score where the cyst ruptured out and she is eating more normal amounts of food. Our cat’s Vet has given us a thumbs up on her continued progress and rate of recovery.

We are so  happy and grateful to have such an array of incredible YLEO products to work with in both maintaining as well as regenerating the health of our pets.

Tranquil – The Loss of my Father

Sitting here looking at the American flag, the flag given to me at Father’s funeral as he served in the US armed forces. Being permanency disabled for nearly 35 years of his life he was found unresponsive one morning. As his primary care giver throughout most of his life I stayed with him until he passed.

Wanting to say my own good-byes and knowing too that others would also appreciate saying their good-byes, we started out on morphine, as his breathing was heavy and labored. I began putting tranquil on his temples, wrists and forehead. After two doses of morphine about 2 hours apart, the nurse came in and we decided, as he showed no signs of physical pain and his breathing had “normalized”, to discontinue the morphine until other there was an indication of need.  I continued applying Tranquil every two to three hours until he passed.

I do believe he heard what was happening around him. It was an honor to be present when he passed and for me, not to have him in a drugged state unless his body required it. When the last person he was close to came to say good-bye, my father died a few minutes later. While initial painful, his passing felt complete and peaceful.

Until next time . . . Oil Spice.
