My New Essential Oil Carrying Case that Holds 30 Bottles

  • This bag holds 30 bottles of essential oil (5-ml or 15-ml size). Each bottle sits upright in a removable and durable foam insert, which makes it super easy to organize and find the essential oil I’m looking for. There aren’t any actual spaces for a 10-ml roller bottle, however, there is plenty of room in the bag to fit several of these if you lay them on their side (in between the 5-ml and 15-ml bottles).
  • There is also a thin foam insert that sits on top of the essential oils to keep them double safe if your GoGoBag gets knocked off the shelf or gets tossed around during travel.
  • The GoGoBag is sturdy (not chunky like a wooden case) and has a hard sided outer shell that is waterproof AND shock proof!
  • This case is lightweight so by time you add 30 bottles of essential oil to it, it’s not very heavy.
  • There is a double zipper on this bag and they are both DURABLE! There are NOT any cheap zippers on this bag – thank goodness!
  • The GoGoBag has a sturdy handle and also comes with a small climbing hook so that it can be attached to something like a carry on travel bag – this is perfect for an over packer like myself!
  • I have several other essential oil cases/bags and the price of this one is totally reasonable, especially considering that it holds 30 bottles of essential oil!
  • PLUS, FREE SHIPPING if you have Amazon Prime!!! :) :)

I’m so happy that Bruce from GoGoBag reached out to me to try their product! Now, the question is… Do I keep this essential oil case/bag for myself or let my hubby have it for his own oily stash?! Or maybe I’ll just have to buy another one! :)

5 Essential Oils Items You Never Thought You Wanted – Until Now!

5 Essential Oils Items You Never Thought You Wanted - Until Now

I came across some pretty neat oiling items yesterday morning (while sipping on my coffee) and I just had to share them with my readers and fellow essential oil users. If you love essential oils, you’ll likely get a kick out of these five items. I don’t have any of the below items, but I think that I’ll definitely have to order at least one of them for myself (or to give as a gift). :)

1. Essential oils diffuser case ($34.80 – $44.80):

No need to travel without your essential oil diffuser anymore! Safely take your diffuser with you in this protected case. The best part is that there are pockets around the inside of the case to hold your 5-ml and 15-ml bottles of essential oil. There are a variety of colors and patterns available. See it HERE!

2. Young Living cinch sack ($12.00):

I’ve seen Young Living tote bags before, but never a cinch sack. These 100% cotton canvas bags are perfect for advertising your business while carrying your necessities with you (think meetings, trips to the zoo, strolls to the park, summer festivals, etc). These bags have cotton webbing straps and a zippered front pocket for easy storage. Available in dark brown or tan. I just love these types of bags! See it HERE!

3. Aromatherapy stuffed animal ($12.99 – $25.99):

These super cute stuffed animals contain a hidden, grain-filled (and Lavender infused) insert. After heating the insert in the microwave for 30 seconds, your little one can cuddle up next to it and will be asleep in no time! When the original Lavender scent fades, simply freshen it up with a drop of your own Lavender essential oil. Various sizes and animals available. See it HERE!

4. Young Living essential oils key fob ($4.27):

Easily find your keys in your purse with the help of a key fob. This Young Living key fob doubles as a conversation starter for your growing Young Living business. Buy one for yourself or give one as a gift when a member in your downline moves up rank. :) See it HERE!

5. Essential oils car diffuser ($7.90):

Keep your car smelling fresh, fight fatigue, promote focus, and remedy the occasional motion sickness with this essential oil car diffuser. Place 4-6 drops of essential oil onto the diffuser pad (I suggest Peppermint essential oil), slide the pad into the diffuser, and plug it into the charging port. This diffuser comes with 5 refill pads. See it HERE!

10 Must Have Essential Oil Accessories

Alright folks…here ya go – 10 must have essential oil accessories! :) I’m NOT talking major moolah either people…these products are all pretty reasonable!

10 Must Have EO Accessories

1. Essential oil reference guide

WHY – A reference guide will tell you which essential oil to use and how to use it. A reference guide will take a beginner essential oil user and make you feel like a confident essential oil user. No oiler should be without a reference guide!

WHERE – I have two websites that I like to purchase essential oil reference guides from. You can check them out here.

2. Essential oil diffuser

WHY – A diffuser lets you experience the powerful aromatic benefits of essential oils. The Young Living Home Diffuser combines a humidifier, air purifier, atomizer, and aromatherapy diffuser into one product that safely releases essential oils into the air. I absolutely LOVE diffusing my essential oils (and this one comes with a year warranty)!

WHERE – The Home Diffuser comes as part of the Young Living Premium Starter Kit (which you can purchase through my blog). Once you are a member of Young Living, you can purchase additional diffusers if you so choose. Off brand diffusers are available elsewhere online, however, I prefer the powerful mist that the Young Living Home Diffuser puts out.

3. Carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, or Young Living’s V-6 oil)

WHY – Some essential oils are quite strong and need to be diluted with a carrier oil oil before applying them to the skin. Young Living’s V-6 oil is my favorite carrier oil because it nourishes the skin, has a long shelf life, doesn’t clog pores, and it doesn’t stain my clothes. V-6 also comes in a pump bottle, which makes it easy and convenient to use. You can also use coconut oil or olive oil as carrier oils.

WHERE – You can buy V-6 from Young Living as a Retail Customer or a Wholesale Member. I purchase my coconut oil from My Natural Market (because I want the good stuff – raw, organic, cold pressed) and my olive oil is from my local grocery store.

4. Essential oil carrying case

WHY – When you start using essential oils, you will experience their versatility and you’ll definitely want to carry at least few of them with you at all times. So, it only makes sense that you will need a little travel pouch for your essential oils!

WHERE – I got my essential oil zip pouch from a seller on Etsy. Abundant Health also sells essential oil travel pouches.

5. Epsom salt

WHY – Adding a few drops of essential oil to a bath or foot soak is a great way to experience their therapeutic benefits. A small amount of Epsom salt to your bath or foot soak will help disperse the essential oil in the water. Adding a bit of Epsom salt to a homemade essential oil room spray will also help emulsify the oil. Plus, Epsom salt offers its own set of versatile health promoting benefits.

WHERE – Epsom salt is a pretty inexpensive product and is usually available at your local drug store.

6. Essential oil roll-on bottles

WHY – You can use a roll-on bottle to dilute or blend your essential oils ahead of time. Having oils already diluted or blended can save a lot of time and allow for quick, effective, and easy oil application…especially when you are on-the-go.

WHERE – You can get your own roller bottles from Abundant Health.

7. Essential oil spray bottles

WHY – You can use your essential oils to make your own perfume or room spray. Be sure to use a glass spray bottle (as therapeutic essential oils  will eventually begin to dissolve a plastic spray bottle).

WHERE – You can purchase glass spray bottles from Abundant Health.

8. Essential oil dropper bottles

WHY – Dropper bottles allow you to be precise when diluting or making your own essential oil blends.

WHERE – Dropper bottles are available from Abundant Health.

9. Stainless steal drinking straws

WHY – Many Young Living essential oils can be taken internally. I love adding a drop or two of essential oil (Lemon, Lime, Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit and Citrus Fresh are some of my fav) to my water. If this interests you, you’ll definitely want a stainless steel straw (as therapeutic essential oils will slowly break down a plastic one).

WHERE – Stainless steal drinking straws are available from Abundant Health.

10. Glass water bottle

WHY – Refresh and hydrate on-the-go by adding a drop or two of Young Living essential oil to your water bottle. As stated above (in # 9), essential oils will slowly dissolve plastic. Therefore, you’ll want a glass water bottle versus a plastic one.

WHEREAbundant Health sells a great glass water bottle.

My on-the-go essential oil stash!

When you start using essential oils, I can guarantee that you will carry at least one essential oil with you at all times. In fact, I carry about 5-6 Young Living essential oils with me at all times (no, they don’t take up much space). They change slightly from time to time…mostly depending on the season and what our plans might be that day. Here’s my most recent on-the-go stash of oils.

ESSENTIAL OIL ON THE GO STASH

Lemon, Lime, or Orange oil: I almost always carry a citrus oil with me. A couple drops of Young Living’s Lemon, Lime, or Orange oil in some water makes for a refreshing, and good for you beverage. Plus, a little secret…if we go out for drinks, I’ll bring my Lime oil with me. Bar limes are so small, but a drop of Lime oil sure makes for a good vodka tonic. My hubby will even ask for the Lime oil if we go out! :)

Peppermint oil: Peppermint oil is my go to oil for digestive support. Plus, it doubles as a breath freshener. Win, win!

Lavender oil: Lavender is one of the most versatile and gentle essential oils. When I am in doubt, I use Lavender.

Breathe Again oil: This roll-on has been a new addition to on-the-go oil stash. I roll Breathe Again under my nose and across my sinuses (as needed).

Thieves oil: Thieves is my go to oil to support my immune and respiratory system. At work, I like to make Thieves tea – a mug of hot water, an optional tea bag (I like green tea or chamomile tea), honey to taste, 1 drop of Young Living Thieves essential oil, and 2-3 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil (which as stated above, is also often part of my on-the-go oil stash).

An oil for occasional stress and nervousness (Tranquil, Peace & Calming, or Stress Away): Lavender oil (which I always have with me as stated above) is calming and relaxing. However, I also apply Tranquil, Peace & Calming, or Stress Away roll-on to my wrists so that I can stay cool, calm, and collected throughout the day.

V-6 oil (carrier oil): On occasion, I carry a small amount of V-6 carrier oil in a little glass squirt bottle I found at a local health food store. That way, I can dilute some of my oils for topical application.

On-the-go oiling accessories —>

I have a cute little essential oil zip pouch that I store my on-the-go stash of oils in (thanks to my friend, Angie, who bought it for me). This pouch is go great because…

  • it is laminated, which makes it waterproof and easy to wipe.
  • elastic is sewn onto the lining making 8 spots available for the oils to be held into place!
  • it has boxed corners, which allows it to stand on its own.
  • it is sturdy – not floppy or flimsy!
  • the print is fun!
  • it is reasonably priced.
