here is a quick round up of a few essential oil blends we can’t live without and their uses:
calming spray: 10 drops lavender + 10 drops orange + 4 tablespoons witch hazel + fill the rest of a 2oz glass amber bottle with distilled water. we use this blend on the two older kids when they get a little hyper or their mood may seem a little off. works like a charm! we often see kendi go for this when she is working through a tough moment.
linen spray: 10 drops lavender + distilled water in a 2oz glass amber bottle. we use on our linens and the kid’s blankets before nap and bedtime. it is my favorite part of our bedtime ritual. it sets the stage for peaceful night of sleep!
all purpose surface spray: 10 drops thieves + 10 drops purification + 10 lemon oil + fill the rest with distilled water in a 12oz glass spray bottle. we use this to clean off our surfaces after meals and spills. it leaves our surfaces shinny and smelling good while also fighting germs and keeping harmful toxins away from our littles. clean and safe products are what’s best!
germ fighter: 3 drops thieves + 3 drops cedarwood + sweet almond oil in a glass roller bottle. we use this blend on our feet before bed to fight off those pesky germs and to keep our bodies healthy and give our immune system a little boost!
face serum: 5 drops frankincense + 2 drops geranium + equal parts of jojoba + sweet almond oil in a glass dropper bottle. i use this on my face 2-3 times a day. i add a drop or two to my moisturizer in the morning and evening. my face glows all day long while it’s working it’s magic at fighting off those fine lines!
energy + focus boost: 5 drops peppermint + 5 drops grapefruit + sweet almond oil in a glass roller bottle. i use this blend every single day, multiple times a day. this is literally my go to blend for everything. if i need a little boost of energy or need to dial in and fight off distraction or i feel a headache coming on or i need a little calm in the storm of chaos, i sniff or roll this stuff on me and all is right again. i have a serious love for peppermint and grapefruit! they are my go to oils, for sure!
happy oiling, dears!
