Valentine’s Day Essential Oil Recipes

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, check out the essential oil diffuser and roll-on recipes below. Feel free to adjust the number of drops of essential oil based on your liking and comfort level. Happy Oiling and Happy Valentine’s Day! XOXO! <3

Vantines Day Diffuser Recipes

Roll-ons are most commonly made with a 10-ml roller bottle (you can buy these on Amazon). If you are just getting started in the oiling world and/or have sensitive skin, you may want to decrease the number of drops of essential oil for each roll-on recipe by adding just one-fourth to one-half of the number of drops of essential oil and filling the remainder of the bottle up with carrier oil. More information on conservative dilution ratios to use can be found HERE.

How to Naturally Support Your Health in the Fall and Winter

Brrrr! It’s chilly and windy in Wisconsin today and I LOVE IT!!!! :) Fall and winter are my favorite seasons (yes, I’m serious). While I love the colder weather, I do take a little extra care to be sure I can enjoy all of the fun things the colder weather (and the snow) has to offer. If you’re interested in learning how to naturally support your health this fall and winter, check out all of oily tips I posted below. Stay healthy people!

Welcome Fall

Thieves Cough Drops offers comfort by relieving coughs, soothing sore throats, and cooling nasal passages. Thieves Cough Drops are minty, spicy, and sweet without processed sugar, dyes, artificial flavors, or preservatives. Dissolve 1 drop slowly in mouth. Repeat every 2 hours as needed. You’ll want a stash of these at home, at work, in your car, and in your purse.

Thieves Cough Drops

Young Living’s Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream contains Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Cool Azul essential oils. It provides a natural cooling relief from minor muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. Apply this cream to the affected area up to 3-4 times daily. Just think of all that leaf raking and snow shoveling you’re going to end up doing in the coming months and how much you’ll need this stuff!

Fall Pain Cream

NingXia Red and Thieves Vitality are immune supporting powerhouses! NingXia Red includes juices and extracts from superfruits such as aronia, plum, blueberry, and pomegranate, plus a whole-fruit puree of exotic wolfberries. In addition to these antioxidant ingredients, NingXia Red’s formula includes pure vanilla extract and Lemon, Orange, Yuzu, and Tangerine essential oils for a great-tasting, healthy treat. Thieves Vitality is a powerful blend of Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils. Drink 1-2 ounces of NingXia Red daily – drink it alone or try it with a drop of Thieves Vitality (or your other favorite Vitality essential oil). Thieves Vitality can also be taken by putting 1-2 drops in a capsule with carrier oil, adding 1-2 drops to warm water and honey (I also like to add a drop of Lemon essential oil), or putting 1-2 drops in a spoonful of honey. Thieves Vitality can be taken once daily, or as needed.

Thieves & NingXia Red

Inner Defense is a liquid softgel that supports the immune and respiratory system. Take 1 Inner Defense capsule daily in the morning or take 1 capsule 3-5 times daily when the body is stressed. Life 5 is a probiotic that contains 10 billion active cultures and improves colonization up to 10 times. Life 5 builds and restores core intestinal health by providing five clinically proven probiotic strains including two advanced super strains to enhance intestinal health, sustain energy, and improve immunity. Take 1 Life 5 capsule every night following a meal, or as needed.

Inner Defense

Other essential oils and supplements that I would recommend stocking up on this fall and winter are below. :)

SniffleEase is part of the KidScents Oil Collection, which are formulated and pre-diluted for use on kiddos ages 2-12. SniffleEase is a blend of Eucalyptus Blue, Palo Santo, Lavender, Dorado Azul, Ravintsara, Myrtle, Eucalyptus Globulus, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Cypress, Eucalyptus Radiata, Black Spruce and Peppermint essential oils. I don’t think I need to elaborate on the purpose of this oil – the name pretty much sums it up. :) Diffuse SniffleEase up to 1 hour 3 times daily -OR- apply onto the lungs, throat, and the bottom of the feet (you may want to attach an AromaGlide Roller Fitment for easy application).

RC is a blend of Eucalyptus Globulus, Myrtle, Pine, Marjoram, Eucalyptus Radiata, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Lavender, Cypress, Tsuga, and Peppermint essential oils. When diffused or applied topically, RC essential oil blend feels invigorating to the chest and throat area. Diffuse RC for 30 minutes three times daily -OR- dilute RC with a carrier oil and massage onto the chest, throat, back, on the bottom of the feet, and on the outside of the ears. You can also swipe the sinuses and nasal passages with RC (put a drop of RC and a little carrier oil on a Q-tip and swab the inside of the nose).

Raven is a blend of Ravensara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus Radiata essential oils. Raven is deeply soothing and can provide comfort when diffused or applied topically to the chest and throat. Diffuse Raven for about 30 minutes three times daily – OR- dilute it with a carrier oil and massage onto the lungs, throat, and the bottom of the feet.

Breathe Again is an essential oil blend in a convenient roller bottle. This means that you can easily carry this oil around with you (in your purse or pocket) and apply it without making a mess. I love on the go stuff! Breathe Again is a blend of Eucalyptus Staigeriana, Eucalyptus Globulus, Laurel, Rose Hip, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Radiata, Copiaba, Myrtle, Manuka, and Eucalyptus Blue essential oils in a coconut oil base. To use, apply Breathe Again Roll-On every 15 minutes to the chest, across the sinuses, and under the nose up to four times per day (just unscrew the cap and roll it right on – easy peasy).

DiGize Vitality is a blend of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli essential oils. DiGize is a powerhouse when it comes to supporting the digestive system! You’ll definitely want DiGize in your oily arsenal for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years! :)  DiGize Vitality can be taken by putting 1-2 drops in a capsule with carrier oil, adding 1-2 drops to warm water and honey, or putting 1-2 drops in a spoonful of honey. DiGize Vitality can be taken once daily, or as needed after eating.

Super C tablets provide 2,166% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C and are fortified with electrolyte-balancing ingredients to promote immune and circulatory function. To reinforce immune strength, take 2 tablets daily. For maintenance, take 1 tablet daily. Super C works best if taken before meals. Super C is also sold in a chewable form for the non pill swallowing peeps. :)

I swapped out my body wash for the Young Living bar soaps a long time ago. I recently ran out of bar soap and while I was waiting for a new one to arrive in my next order, I mixed up a batch of DIY body wash – made with essential oils, of course. Check out the recipe below. :)
