recipes you can personalize header

 

Young Living Essential Oils offer a myriad of benefits, including immune-boosting power, increased longevity and energy, and better mental health.  They’re a natural alternative to common medications and other first aid items and are safe for the whole family.  You can use therapeutic grade essential oils in everything from shampoo to sanitizing spray!  Wondering how?  Take a look at these 5 essential oil recipes, each with alternative oil ideas that can be used for different effects.  It’s easy to personalize your DIY essential oil products for you and your family!

 

1. Lip Balm

Basic recipe: 1 Tablespoon Beeswax, 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil, 1 teaspoon Vitamin E Oil, 5-8 drops of essential oils.  Method: Melt the beeswax and coconut oil together in a double broiler and stir it well. Remove from heat and add the Vitamin E and essential oils.  Stir well.  Pour into a tube or container and seal.

EO’s (essential Oils) to Add:

Lemon Oil – for a light, citrus flavor and scent that is revitalizing and energizing and purifying and antioxidant qualities.

Peppermint – for a strong, fresh scent and a minty taste that can support liver and respiratory function and increase concentration and mental sharpness.

Lavender – for a sweet, soothing aroma that refreshes and can restore balance and aid in relaxation.  It can also help to soothe and heal chapped, irritated lips.

 

2. Sanitizing Spray

Basic recipe: about 4 oz Witch Hazel with aloe, 1 oz Water, 35-40 drops of essential oils.  Method: Use a glass spray bottle.  Place the essential oil drops in first, then the water, then fill the rest of the bottle with witch hazel to the top.  Place the lid on and shake vigorously to combine.  You may want to shake a bit before each use. (This sanitizing spray is ideal for hands, shopping carts, steering wheels, etc.)

EO’s to Add:

Purification – for a light, neutralizing aroma that can help to cleanse from impurities and soothe skin.

Thieves – for a spicy, musky smell that is well-known for anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and cleansing properties that helps to boost immune system health.

Melaleuca – for an earthy aroma that has all the cleansing properties of Tea Tree Oil and can help to purify and support skin health.

 

3. Deodorant

Basic recipe: 1 Cup Coconut Oil, 1/4 Cup Shea Butter, 1 Cup Aluminum-Free Baking Soda (or Arrowroot Powder), 30-40 Drops of essential oils, deodorant tubes.  Method: Melt the coconut oil and shea butter, stirring until combined.  Remove from heat and add the baking soda (or arrowroot powder).  Mix well.  Add the essential oils.  Use a glass bowl with a spout or a small funnel to pour the mixture into the deodorant tubes and allow it to solidify before using.

Note: you may want to use a combination of essential oils to equal 30-40 drops in order to create the scent and get the desired benefits.  For instance, Thieves, Purification and Melaleuca oils all have purifying and antibacterial properties that would be perfect for deodorant, and you can combine with a number of your favorite oils for aroma.

EO’s to Add:

Lemongrass – for a light, citrusy aroma with earthy undertones that is refreshing and rejuvenating.  It also promotes balance and can improve mental clarity.

Blue Cypress – for a spicy, natural scent that can aid in regulated breathing.  It is known to support the bodies natural response to skin irritation and injury and can promote healing.

Geranium –  for a springlike, flowery scent that is both uplifting and calming.  It boosts skin health and supports the circulatory system, and can revitalize body tissues.

 

4. Foot Scrub

Basic recipe: 1 Cup Epsom Salt, 1/4 Cup Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Liquid Castile Soap, 15-20 Drops of essential oils.  Method: Mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl.  Store in an airtight container.  Use for exfoliating feet, rinse thoroughly.

As with the deodorant above, you may want to combine other oils with either Thieves, Purification or Melaleuca oils due to their cleansing and antibacterial properties.

EO’s to Add:

Eucalyptus – for a gentle and refreshing aroma that can energize as it revitalizes.  It has cooling properties and is very nonirritating.  

Joy – for a luxurious and exotic aroma that energizes and uplifts.  It can inspire romance, togetherness and an overall feeling of well-being.

Angelica –  for a light and soothing scent that can restore happy memories and calm anxiety.  It also relaxes nerves and muscles and releases tension.

 

5. DIY Shampoo

Basic recipe: 1/2 Cup Liquid Castile Soap, 1/4 Cup Canned Coconut Milk, 1/4 Cup Honey, 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, 2 Tablespoons Vitamin E Oil, 40-50 Drops of essential oils.  Method: Mix all ingredients together in a bottle with a lid.  Shake well before each use – lather, rinse.

Again, use any combination of oils to achieve the scent and cleansing properties you desire.  Melaleuca, Purification, Rosemary and Lavender all promote skin and hair health and are known for cleansing and soothing properties.  Thieves is also a strong cleanser and boosts immune system health.  Use these in combination with other oils to get the results you want.

EO’s to Add:

Spearmint – for a soft minty, slightly fruity scent that is a rich antioxidant.  It supports nervous system health and has restorative properties that can lead to a sense of balance and well-being.

Clary Sage – for a mellow, warm, herbaceous scent that is uplifting and relaxing.  It supports healthy mental and emotional states.

Grapefruit – for a fresh, citrusy aroma that is energizing and has mood-enhancing properties.  It is a powerful antioxidant and is very nourishing to skin and hair.

Top 10 Reasons To Try Stress Away Essential Oil

Stress Away Blend is an important part of your essential oil arsenal. Not convinced? Top 10 Reasons To Try Stress Away Essential Oil - Tipsaholic, #EO, #StressAway, #youngliving, #essentialoils, #health, #greenliving

 reasons header

Stress Away Essential Oil blend is a unique and important part of your essential oil arsenal.  It’s meant to combat the normal stresses that crop up during everyday life.  With a natural blend of vanilla and lime, the scent is refreshing and pleasant, but these ingredients also promote relaxation.  Copaiba and lavender combine to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium and other natural ingredients, including cedarwood, reduce nervous tension and feelings of anxiousness.  With this description alone, it’s easy to see why this oil can quickly become an important household tool, but here are even more reasons to try Stress Away.

 

1. Everyone worries.  It’s a fact of life, and completely unavoidable.  Everyone experiences feelings of anxiousness, nervousness and worry.  Everyone.  Stress Away can significantly reduce these feelings, leaving you with a calmer demeanor as you approach your day to day tasks.

 

2. Workplace frustration.  Whether your workplace is your home or in an office, there’s bound to be tension and frustration from time to time.  Conflicts with coworkers or bosses, stressful deadlines, difficult tasks and long hours are only a few causes.  Wear a little Stress Away on your wrists or diffuse it into your office and you’ll feel more peaceful when at work.

 

3. Stress can cause pain.  Experts agree, prolonged stress can have physical manifestations.  Stress causes muscle tension, which can lead to tension headaches and migraines, achey muscles, sore back and shoulders and many other hard to deal with pains.  Using Stress Away daily can relax those tense muscles, calm aches and pains, and give you a feeling of ease.

 

4. Kids.  Need I say more?  Just kidding.  But seriously, kids can have crabby days, too.  And even on their best days kids can become testy and fussy.  Stress Away is the perfect remedy when kids start bickering.  Calm the crankies in no time by diffusing Stress Away at home during periods of known frustration.

 

5. Occasional high-stress situations.  Everyday stress is one thing, but everyone experiences occasional periods of even higher stress.  For events like interviews, being in the spotlight, giving a speech, or meeting people for the first time, Stress Away can create a a much appreciated feeling of peaceful calm.  It also reduces mental rigidity and helps you to feel less anxious.  Dab it on before you leave or use a diffusing locket when you go.

 

6. Painful PMS symptoms.  If you’re plagued with feelings of irritability, unease and anxiousness, along with cramping muscles once a month, Stress Away is a must have.  Calm those clenched muscles and uplift your overall mood by using it topically or drinking it with some water.

 

7. Your teeth and jaw will thank you.  If you suffer from clenched jaw and grinding teeth – even while you sleep – Stress Away can help in a major way.  Dab some behind your ears and on your temples for more relaxed facial muscles and ease your soreness.

 

8. Happy travels.  Car rides can be anything but peaceful.  First, there’s the stress of other drivers and traffic in general.  Add to that any other people in the car, kids or pets and the anxiety of travel grows exponentially.  Calm crankiness by diffusing Stress Away through your air vents.  Kids and parents alike will benefit from the calming affects and travel will be a breeze.

 

9. Calmer pets.  Help your pets feel more at ease when going to the vet or traveling in a plane or car.  Pets get anxious and nervous as well, and by simply applying just a drop or two topically, you can help them feel more at ease at unpleasant times.

 

10. Overall balance.  Restore some much needed equilibrium in your life.  Your mental balance will improve with daily use of Stress Away – along with all of the great physical and emotional benefits.

A headache may be helped with a simple peppermint headache salve like this one from Confessions of An Over-Worked Mom. Rub a bit onto your temples or the back of your neck at the first sign of a headache.

 

2. Oral health

Peppermint makes the perfect breath freshener and may also be good for dental health. Use it as a mouthwash or create a simple and natural toothpaste. It’s a great way to get your mouth clean without any hard-to-pronounce ingredients! Try a toothpaste recipe like this one found at DIY Natural.

 

3. Tummy health

Use a drop or two on your wrists or stomach to help relieve nausea or motion sickness. It is best to use a carrier oil (such as almond or olive) rather than applying the peppermint directly. You may also try adding a drop of peppermint oil to a cup of tea regularly to promote healthy digestion.

 

4. Relieve congestion

Peppermint oil is partially made up of menthol, which makes it a good choice when it comes to relieving congestion. You may add a few drops of oil to a pot of boiling water or your humidifier and inhale the steam, or use the headache relief salve recipe above on your chest.

 

5. Soften lips

Dry, chapped lips can be aided by a good peppermint lip scrub and this recipe from Lemon Peony won’t disappoint. After a scrub, keep your lips moist and minty with a balm you can make yourself as well! Try this one at Eat. Drink. Love.

 

6. Healthy hair

Encourage healthy hair by mixing a few drops of peppermint oil with a carrier oil and massaging it into your scalp. Leave your hair covered with a shower cap for 30 minutes or more a few times a month and dandruff and greasy locks may just become a thing of the past.

 

7. Relaxation

Peppermint oil in a warm bath can help to relax muscles and quiet the mind. Peppermint bath salts are one of the best ways to add these to your tub, and they would make a great gift for a friend or family member in need of a little relaxing as well.

 

8. Mental health

Peppermint oil may also help to improve mental clarity and alertness and decrease stress when inhaled. You may choose to use it on your skin or diffuse oil into the air with a diffuser. And don’t forget the obvious bonus here — your house will smell great too!

 

Peppermint Oil Safety Tips:

Always avoid contact with the eyes. Combining with olive or almond oil to dilute is beneficial in topical uses. Ingesting undiluted peppermint oil is not recommended. Always consult a doctor, particularly if you are taking any medications, as there may be interactions. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult a doctor before using any essential oil and it is recommended that peppermint oil not be used during the first months of pregnancy.
