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!

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.

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

 

 

Wow.

Last week of October. Last fall diffuser recipe for 2015.

I remember growing up in New York, and this was about the time where the weather would start getting a bit cooler. Kind of like the gateway to winter.

I know many of you find it hard to believe that this Florida girl used to endure cold winters. But it’s true. I would bundle up and brave the snow so that I could go sledding or have snowball fights.

Those were the days.

Of course, now, if the temperature drops to 60, I’m a popsicle.

But, anyway…

Here is this week’s recipe:

3 drops RC oil  (RC is part of the Premium Starter Kit!)

3 drops Idaho Blue Spruce oil

3 drops Nutmeg oil

 

Well, that’s it. Hope you’ve enjoyed the fall diffuser recipes this year. If you missed any of them, you can find them here:

R.C. Essential Oil

 

When I started using Young Living’s essential oils, I knew there had to be something that could encourage proper nasal function.

R.C. Essential Oil.

I live in Florida. With the tan people. You would think I would be tan too. After all, I’m Italian. But, no. I go from white to dark white. But wait, that’s not where I was going with this.

In Florida, we have, how should I put it, weather with an attitude. Oh, sure, we have wonderful sunny days. In the winter. Or what we call winter. But in the summer, we get gobs and gobs of rain. But not all day. A typical summer day here can literally go from bright sunshine to pouring rain, back to bright sunshine within about 15 minutes. Not kidding. If you don’t believe me, come visit us some time. Oh, wait, that’s right, you and about a billion of your friends visit us every year. But you usually come during the dry winter days, and then leave during the rainy summer. Not that we Floridians feel used or anything. *sniff*

Speaking of the dry winter, the temperature can range from 40 degrees to 85 degrees….from one day to the next. And just so you know, 85 is a nice cool winter, and 40? 40 is just too upsetting to talk about.

So it’s nice to know that R.C. can help keep my normal nasal functions working properly.

R.C. can be used in different ways. It can be taken internally in a capsule, it can be diffused, and it can be inhaled. But I mostly use it topically. I apply about 2-4 drops on my forehead and cheekbone area to promote proper nasal function. 

So, what’s in R.C.? Get this – TEN different oils. It is PACKED with essential oil power. It contains 3 different kinds of eucalyptus oils, which promote proper respiratory function. It also contains myrtle, spruce, peppermint, pine, lavender, marjoram, and cypress oils. Those are all great for maintaining proper circulatory and respiratory function.

So feel free to ask me about R.C. (or any other oil) if you have questions.
