A couple of quick recipes

OK, so I hear there’s a nasty blizzard assaulting my northern friends this weekend.

And while I can’t imagine why you would want to live in a place where blizzards happen how cold it must be there, I can understand what this type of weather can do to our lips.

Young Living has come up with an amazing lip scrub recipe.

 

YLlip

Exfoliating Lip Scrub**

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon olive oil

1–2 drops Lavender essential oil or another aromatic essential oil of your choice*

*We strongly recommend NOT using any citrus essential oils or blends, which could be too harsh on exfoliated skin.
** Recipe is from www.youngliving.com

 

I tried this the other day, and I have to say – my lips felt much softer afterward.

The recipe is enough for a few applications, so you can reapply as needed.

 

I also blended Cypress oil and RC oil in my diffuser recently. I love the smell of both of these oils separately, and I was pleasantly surprised at how great they smelled together!

I used 3 drops of each, but next time I will use 4-5 drops of each because I loved the scent, and I am okay with it smelling a bit stronger.

In fact, I think I will go diffuse this again right now.

 

Stay warm northerners!! And check out some of my summer diffuser recipes while you’re cooped up in the house! Maybe the scents will temporarily make you forget about all the white stuff swirling around outside! Be safe!

Fall Diffuser Recipes – Part 3

Fall

*** disclaimer: due to the new guidelines of a…certain government regulating body, some of these oils are not designated for aromatic usage. While *select* oils may contain an aromatic benefit in supporting well-being (as labeled on the bottle in compliance to the guidelines), these diffuser recipes are for purposes of fragrance only.  I am in no way suggesting that these recipes contain any health benefit whatsoever. All essential oils should be used strictly as instructed on the bottle label.

Whew….now that that’s out of the way….

 

 

Can you believe we are already on week three of this series??

Time is flying, and now that many of you are starting to feel the effects of fall outside, here’s a great way to enjoy fall inside as well.

Here’s this week’s recipe:

 

falldiffuser3

3 drops Cypress oil

3 drops Raven oil

2 drops Frankincense oil (Frankincense is part of the Premium Starter Kit!)

 

Remember, you can always change the recipe according to your preference. For instance, if you like a stronger woodsy scent, add a drop or two of Cypress. If you prefer a somewhat “sweeter” fragrance, add some more drops of Raven.

It’s all up to you. But keep in mind, Young Living essential oils make a little go a long way. You don’t need to use a whole lot to get the scent that you like.
