How I Got Started with Essential Oils

For me, as a mom, the first things I wanted to support my family with was their IMMUNE SYSTEMS!! We had some bad luck with traditional over the counters. In fact, some of the side effects that you don’t think will ever happen, actually happened to my mom. She was in the hospital and we thought we were going to lose her. It was really scary

Needless to say, I jumped all over Pinterest searching for all natural remedies that could support our immune systems and help my mom as well. So we wouldn’t need to jump to the over-the-counters as much.

When I saw my friend posting about how they had decreased doctor visits for their entire family of 7, I was definitely willing to try it out. I tried one bottle to start, but I felt like I was missing out on getting the entire scope of what oils could really do. I decided to get the Starter Kit that comes with 11 of the most common oils and a diffuser and really get a feel for how these could help our lives. Boy, did they ever!!

If you look in my cupboards, all you’ll find is brightly-colored oil bottles, some carrier oil and some other all natural ingredients to make DIY’s with. Seriously, that’s it. We use them everyday by everyone in the family.

My husband loves them to clear his sinuses. My mom loves them for head tension relief, increased energy, mobility and boosting her mood. You have no idea how comforting it is as a mom to be equipped with amazing tools to help support our family’s health when before I felt so helpless.

Make sure and follow me on Instagram where I tell you what we are using daily and what is working.

Supplies for Your 9 Essential Oil Roller Bottle Blends

Some of my favorite recipes are from my favorite recipe book, “Oil & Glass.” When you get a Starter Kit with me, I ship this book to you, it’s gorgeous and so helpful.

Carrier Oil

When you first start with oils, you’ll want to dilute with a carrier oil (any fatty oil you choose). I use fractionated coconut oil, but you can use Jojoba oil, sunflower, Grapeseed, etc. Some of the oils are considered HOT oils, and can feel very hot on the skin if not diluted. Especially when using oils on children, dilute to protect their sensitive skin. Definitely refer to the Oil & Glass book for more dilution guidelines, but here is a quick reference.

Dilution Ratio for Kids

6 mos – 2yrs = Dilute 4X the label recommendation

2 yrs – 5 yrs = Dilute 3X the label recommendation

5 yrs – 10 yrs = Dilute 2X the label recommendation

Edit-Yourself Labels for Essential Oil Roller Bottles

I'm always trying to remember what I used in my roller bottle recipes. I go hunting for the book or the Pin that I saw the recipe in so I can remake my favorite roller. What I really need is the recipe included ON THE LABEL. So, I never need to go hunting for it again. On top of that, it needs to be cute AND legible. 


FREE LABELS when you get your Starter Kit


I made these roller bottle labels to be completely editable. Change the title and completely edit the ingredients to whatever your hearts desire. Just make sure to download the free font Bromello and install on your computer to get the cute font effect.

Nontoxic Homemade Beard Balm Recipe

GUEST POST:

The beard has come back in style for men everywhere. When I was a kid you didn’t see them as much. Now, you can’t go a day without seeing a manly beard complete with stylish glasses and beanie. My husband jumped on the beard bandwagon and grew a fabulous beard. It was gorgeous but, the longer it got, the hair got drier and coarser. As well as the skin underneath, dry and coarse. That is no bueno for the wifey who wants to get close to her man. 

I priced out some store-bought beard balms and they were upwards of $40,  which is crazy! Hence, why I decided to make my own. Plus, no toxins in a homemade version which means my hubby can maintain his manliness without getting toxin overload. 

This homemade manly beard balm is made with simple ingredients and I believe the simpler, the better. The less chemicals the oils have to compete with, the better. Men don’t need to worry about a dry Brillo pad beard (you know, those round scrub brushes made of stainless steel). They can have a soft and supple beard you can run your fingers through. Um.......Yes, please. 

Manly Beard Balm Recipe:


1/4 cup Grapeseed oil
1/2 cup raw shea butter
5 Tbsp soy wax
4 Tbsp Bourbon (optional, only if you like the smell)
10-15 drops of Cedawood (see which brand I use)

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients except Bourbon and Cedarwood essential oil.

Nontoxic, homemade beard balm that every man needs. Perfect for sensitive skin

2. Add to a double boiler, melt all ingredients.

Nontoxic, homemade beard balm for your manly man.

3. Once totally melted take off heat and Cedarwood essential oil. If you like the smell of Bourbon, add that in as well. Customize the smell to your liking by adding more or less of each.

4. Then pour into your tin or jar or fancy-dancy holder and let set.

Nontoxic homemade beard balm made with essential oils,

This beard balm is perfect for gifts. Father’s Day, Christmas, birthdays or any day of the year. I can't wait to hear how you like it. Let me know in the comments below. 

Printable labels that you can edit yourself!!

This pdf allows you to edit the ingredients. The title is NOT editable. Print them on waterproof sticker paper, cut out and apply. Makes great gifts for men and perfect for a make and take party. Check out the Etsy Store for more labels

Top 2 Homemade Sugar Scrub Recipes Every Mom Needs

Homemade sugar scrub recipe with lavender essential oils

Years ago, I was gifted a sugar scrub for Christmas and, this is a little embarrassing but, I had no idea what to do with it. Am I the only one who was totally clueless to these things? I'd never used one before and the thought of rubbing a sugar scrub on my skin in the shower did not sound enjoyable. So the jar of homemade sugar scrub sat in my bathroom for months, unused. So sad.

When I got into essential oils, I read about a sugar scrub recipe that was made with coffee grinds and grapefruit essential oil that was good for smoothing skin on cellulite areas. Um, yes please!!! I can definitely try that. 

I put together the ingredients and slathered it all over myself in the shower. Naturally, it made a huge coffee mess, ha ha. It was pretty comical. "Don't mind me, just taking a shower with coffee all over me." Seems a little contradictory, doesn't it? It was quite the shower adventure. 

The results were super soft baby skin, like butter. It does a great job of smoothing the skin and lessening the appearance of cellulite. I'll take it.

HOMEMADE COFFEE GRAPEFRUIT SCRUB


Ingredients:


• 1/4 cup EVOO 
• 1/2 cup coffee grounds (I've read reviews from using both used and unused coffee grounds, see what works best for you)
• 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
• 10 drops Grapefruit Essential oil (don't use the cheap stuff from the store, get high quality - see where I get my oils)
• 10 drops Citrus Fresh Essential Oil (a Blend of citrus oils from Young Living)

Directions:


1. Mix all together and place in a small glass jar with a lid. 
2. In a warm shower, after your pores are nice and open, rub scrub on desired area and let sit. The longer it sits the better up to 15 min. 
3. Rinse off in shower.
4. Use daily for 1-2 weeks

HOMEMADE LAVENDER LIP SCRUB


Now that I was a pro at making sugar scrubs, I decided to make sugar scrubs for Christmas presents for my friends. I picked out a SUPER easy Lavender Lip Scrub. There's literally only 3 ingredients, coconut oil, organic cane sugar and Lavender Vitality (safe for internal use). 

So as a good friend, I should probably try out the scrub before I give it out, right? So, I rub a little of the Lavender Lip Scrub on my lips and OHHHHHHH MYYYYYY GOOOODNESSSSSS! Where has this lip scrub been all my life? It's edible, totally non toxic, and tasted delicious. The best part was my lips felt like butter. So smooth and soft. I couldn't stop rubbing my lips together. It tasted so good I wanted to keep tasting it all day. See recipe below

This scrubs as it exfoliates and it also moisturizes, as we get older we need all the moisture we can get too help us look as young as we can. When I use my homemade sugar scrub it makes my face feel so soft, made with all natural ingredients is a way to give myself a mini spa day. I deserve a mini spa day actually I deserve a big, huge spa day but I’ll take what I can get. Us mamas always take what we can get.

LAVENDER LIP SCRUB


Ingredients:
2 cups Organic Cane Sugar
1 cup liquid carrier oil (olive, grapeseed, jojoba, coconut)
10 drops Lavender Vitality Essential Oil (Safe for internal use)

Directions
1. Mix cane sugar and carrier oil together to resemble wet sand.
2. Add essential oils and mix thoroughly
3. Pack into jars and seal tightly
4. Decorate and share

Variations:


Use 10 drops Peppermint Vitality essential oils for a minty fresh feeling on the lips.

BENEFITS
Exfoliating your skin with a homemade sugar scrub with high quality essential oils is a great way to care for your skin. The sugar scrubs away all the impurities on your skin. It helps open up your pores to clean and minimize or get rid of acne and blackheads. 

FOR THE FACE

I do not recommend sugar scrubs for your face, just because, it can be too harsh. For a gentle exfoliator for the face I would definitely recommend getting the Mint Satin Facial Scrub from Young Living. It uses all natural ingredients like sunflower seed oil, mango butter, raspberry extract and peppermint essential oil. It wakes your face up and leaves it feeling so smooth and clean. I love this exfoliator.  (You can purchase it at retail or get 24% off wholesale pricing when you get a Starter Kit)

GIFT A HOMEMADE SCRUB


Sugar scrubs are so easy to make and super affordable for any occasion. Christmas, teacher gifts, make and take parties, new mom and definitely birthdays. I even got you covered with a cute editable and printable label over in my Etsy store. You can add your own ingredients and print onto 2" circle sticker paper or use a 2" circle punch to cut out.

Homemade Peppermint & Rosemary Shaving Cream

Homemade Peppermin and Rosemary Shaving cream made with essential oils and shea butter

Before kids, when I could take my time in the shower, I remember purchasing the most smell-good ladies shaving cream I could find. It was pink and foamy and smelled so divine. I had one of those purple netted plastic scrunchy-thingy's, (what do you call those things?) hanging in my shower. I really felt like I was pampering myself. Sadly, it didn't take me very long to figure out that my skin would get irritated and bumpy whenever I used it. Then, I tried using my shampoo or bar soap and even just plain water. Again, my skin was left dry and bumpy. Ugh.

According to the THINK DIRTY APP, my old shaving creams rates at an 8 on the toxicity scale. Yikes! The Think Dirty App rates them on levels of toxicity from 0-10. 10 being the highest in toxicity.

Ladies Shave Cream Think Dirty App

Meanwhile, my husband also ditched his shaving cream he had been using for years. He would get tiny bumps on his neck and his face would get red. No wonder, his shave cream was filled with ingredients that were more irritating to his body than helpful. He opted to just using water and shaving while in the shower. Which left him dry and red. 

DIY shaving cream for men sensitive skin think dirty app

Fast forward to 3 years ago when I started using essential oils for ERRYTHING!! I had already been making my own skin cream with shea butter and coconut oil, Frankincense and Lavender and it was HEAVENLY!!

I came across this shaving cream recipe by Food For Family on Pinterest and immediately knew it was doable with similar ingredients to my skin cream recipe.

For Christmas that year, I made the shaving cream for the guys in my family. I have lots of brothers, plus my dad and father-in-law. I designed some cute labels to put on top of the small mason jars. I got requests for refills, they loved it so much.   

The shea butter and oils create a protective layer between the skin and the razor and leave the skin moisturized and not dry like soaps, reducing razor burns. The best part is, there's no need to wash it off. You can let it stay on your skin. Then, wash your razor in some water and a touch of castille soap.  

Peppermint & Rosemary Shaving Cream

from FoodForFamily.com

1/3 cup shea butter
1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup jojoba or sweet almond oil
10 drops Young Living rosemary essential oil
3-5 drops Young Living peppermint essential oil

Directions:

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the shea butter and coconut oil, stirring until just melted. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heat-safe bowl. Add in the jojoba oil and the essential oils. Stir to mix.

Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill until solid. Remove from the refrigerator and whip using a hand beater or a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Spoon into a jar. Lid and keep in a cool, dry place.


Makes 8 ounces.

The Easiest Way To Get Healthy Hair - Plus Dry Shampoo Recipe

How to get Healthy All Natural Hair with essential oils

Ok moms, we all know that we don’t often get the time to care for our hair. We aren’t even guaranteed a shower most days! How many of us live in a ponytail? Um, Me. And dry shampoo has become an answer to prayer. (Recipe for natural dry shampoo at the bottom). But, how could I get healthy hair that I didn't mind leaving down and didn't cost me an arm and a leg? These few switches that I made took me a lot of research to get to, but the results were crazy awesome.

For hair care, I thought I was using the best hair care products I could. The bottle said natural and safe, full of botanicals and oils from Trader Joes and only $3. WOW! Sounds great for hair, right? I thought so, and I was using it on my kids as well. I mean, it was better than anything else I had used in my 30-something (cough) years of life before. It must be great for my hair! Right?

1. Natural Healthy Hair: Stop Washing Your Hair & Skin with Toxins

To my dismay, my heart was broken when I decided to scan my shampoo with the "Think Dirty" App and discovered the shampoo I had been using was a 9 our of 10 in toxicity! NOOOOO!!!!!!! Say it ain't so, Trader Joe's! Don't worry, I still love you Trader Joe's but I don't buy your shampoo anymore. 

Think Dirty app Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Shampoo

Now, I was on a mission to scan all the shampoo's in Target, Trader Joe's, and Sprouts to find a shampoo that was in the 0-2 range in toxicity. You know what I found?? VERY FEW!! Even the brands that claimed to be natural were super high on the toxicity scale. 

Think Dirty App Cantu Shea Butter Shampoo
Herbal Essence Think Dirty App shampoo

The lowest brand I found was at the health food store Sprouts, was Alba Colorific and Honest Shampoo! You'd think all of their shampoos would be low on the toxicity scale at the health food store. Sadly, not according to the Think Dirty App. 

2. Natural Healthy Hair: Ditch All the Household Toxins

Don’t just ditch the toxic shampoo, ditch the toxic products you put on your skin, in the air and on the floor!

About 4 years ago, I decided to try out a wellness subscription box from Young Living. Obviously, 4 years and I'm still loving it.  

I’ve never seen a commitment to quality products anywhere like Young Living. They are a one-of-a-kind company that is committed to all natural ingredients of the highest quality. They have a open-door policy on all their farms. Anyone can visit and see the entire process. There’s no oil brokers, just Farm to Family.  Plus, they disclose every ingredient even when they are not required to. There are no secret ingredients disguised under industry terms like "perfume" or "Natural scent."

Even better, they have their products tested by reputable 3rd party companies to uphold their integrity. Which is not required of them, and not many companies do that. Definitely look for 3rd party testing on any product you are putting on or in your body. 

When I use the Young Living shampoo, my hair feels incredibly healthy, shiny and full. It holds curls better, which never happened when I was younger. Because it’s such high quality and so concentrated, I can easily split the bottle into two bottles and fill the rest with water to stretch it out longer. 

3. Natural Healthy Hair: Hair Supporting Nutrients

Something as important as what we put on our hair is what we put in our bodies. Eating healthy foods, healthy fats and getting lots of clean water is important. One product that has received rave reviews for hair is Young Living's Sulfurzyme. Sulfurzyme is supplemental support for Hair, Skin and Nails, look for naturally occurring sulfur. It combines wolfberry with MSM, a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur needed by our bodies every day to maintain the structure of proteins, protect cells and cell membranes, replenish the connections between cells, and preserve the molecular framework of connective tissue."

4. Natural Healthy Hair: Is it Bringing You Results?

Healthy, Natural, Hair DIY Homemade

Ditching the toxic shampoos, feeding my body good nutrients, plus getting rid of the toxic cleaners and air fresheners that I was surrounding myself in each day, gave me amazing results. My hair dresser, who is one of those blatantly honest hair dressers, finally told me that I had such healthy hair. WHAT??? I HAVE NEVER heard a hair dresser tell me that before. It's usually "dry, damaged and split."

My hair was shinier and healthier than I'd ever seen it before. It was like it was being fed nutrients instead of being coated in harmful chemicals. My hair was bouncy and it held curls better than ever. I couldn't believe my eyes. My hair had never been this healthy in my entire life. 

Not only was I happy with the ingredients that I was putting on my hair and soaking into my skin, but I felt safe knowing it was good for my kids as well. 

What do you do to keep your hair healthy and strong?
