Happy Friday!!!!! I hope you guys had a great week. It is officially Thanksgiving break for me and I am so ready. For my Friday Faves I wanted to focus on how I use essential oils. I have used Young Living Essential Oils for a few years now. I get a lot of questions from people about how I use them so I thought I would share the details in my Friday Faves post. First I only use Young Living Oils. They are by far my favorite. I have tried others but those are sub par! Just being honest.
Here are my most commonly used oils in my house and how I normally use them. This is just the basics, there are so many more uses I need to try.
Purification: I add a few drops into my smelly workout laundry with a bit of baking soda and/or vinegar. This totally helps with the stink!
Lavender and Cedar wood: I like to diffuse one of these in my bedroom at night. Lately my daughter has wanted to have a diffuser in her room and this is what I put in.
Valor: I use this one daily to help with any anxious feelings I have. Being a mom, wife and teacher can cause some anxiety and this helps! Plus I really love the smell. It’s my natural perfume.
Peppermint: Headaches, Tummy Aches, and Energy! If I feel a headache coming on I rub a bit on my temples. It also helps with tummy troubles. You can rub it on the tummy with coconut oil or put a bit in your water. I also use it pre-workout by putting some on my wrist or workout towel for an energy boost!
Digize: Tummy Troubles! Just the other day my younger daughter had a tummy ache. I rubbed this on her tummy with coconut oil. Worked like a charm. I also find it can help with bloating.
Stress Away: For stress of course! I rub it on my wrists or diffuse as needed. And it smells so good. The hubby is currently trying this one!
Thieves: This is another popular one for immunity. I usually diffuse it or rub it on my feet when I feel the yucky stuff coming on in our house. Or at school!
Tea Tree: Acne and Athlete’s Foot. I have been trying tea tree oil on my older daughter for blemishes (more to come on that) and it is great for athletes foot too.
Wow I didn’t realize I used that many oils!!!! Most of those are empty bottles! I need a refill!
Those are my most frequently used oils. However, I do have to say that I also love lemon, orange, and eucalyptus in my diffuser.
I thought I would also mention that I just recently signed up as a Young Living distributor after taking some time off. I realized that I was out of most of my favorite oils and I wanted to purchase a new kit with the new Aria diffuser (a kit is by the way the best way to get a ton of oils)! If you would like more information on ordering an oil starter kit or how you can get more information on oils and Young Living feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to chat with you more.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I am ready for a little break!
