Hey there! I’ve recently started using Young Living essential oils. I didn’t realize how much I’d be implementing them into my every day life. I just love the idea of ditching chemicals and replacing them with all natural remedies. Don’t you?
You know I love all things DIY. So I’ve been making tons of my own blends (using two or more oils together) and putting them in glass bottles, droppers and rollers all over my home to use. The issue is that I will make something and then forget what it is or exactly what I put into it. So here comes the super fun part for all you crafters out there. I am designing and cutting out my own labels out of vinyl with my cricut! I am dabbling in naming my blends, potions and perfumes, but so far I’m just sticking to some basics to get started.
Also, a super helpful tip for any new oilers: keep a rollerball of carrier oil (any fatty oil like coconut, olive or jojoba) handy in each room or the house and even one in your purse and car. Anytime you use an essential oil for the first time you should dilute it with a carrier oil to see how your body reacts. Also, some oils are considered hot oils, like peppermint, and may need a carrier oil every time you use them. Also, if you end up using more than you meant to (try to get a drop and get 3-4 instead) just dilute with the carrier oil.
I’m also loving my Desert Mist diffuser which I have running day and night. My favorite diffuser blend for my kitchen is 5 drops Thieves, 2 drops Lemon, and 2 drops of Citrus Fresh. It smells so clean and fresh and a little like Christmas (even though it’s August in Florida).
P.S. The Kitchen Fresh spray in the video I’ve got at that top of this post is Thieves Cleaner diluted in water. It smells amazing and actually cleans my kitchen, bathrooms, mirrors and windows! Also, I love that I’m not wasting a ton of plastic packaging or using chemicals because I can make many bottles of cleaner from the one super concentrated bottle of Thieves cleaner. Win win!
