Living That Oily Life

When you get your starter kit, what do you do with it? Here is how I use each of the oils in the starter kit. There are soooo many other ways, and I can also show you how to get ideas with the resource app I will help you get.

Oils that you get in the starter kit:

1. Copaiba: I use this as a base in my homemade perfume. Smells yummy and I combine it with spruce, tangerine, and vanilla extract (and water and witch hazel. Let me know if you want the recipe or info on how to make your own perfume). Heaven!

2. Thieves: I use this in a roller (I can show you how to make these, it’s easy!) on the bottom of my feet when I feel like I’m getting sick.

3. Lemon: cleans so much. Gets sticky stuff off. I used it to get pitch off my hands! I also used it to clean the spilled mineral makeup that had stained my quartz countertop. It comes off when nothing else worked! Add it to your water for flavor. Diffuse it to smell like sunshine.

4. Peppermint: probably my overall favorite oil, besides valor. I dab it on my head straight when I’m getting a headache. I’m not trying to say this can cure any disease so don’t tell the FDA, but it is very soothing to me and that’s all I’m saying I’m writing. I carry it with me everywhere. I’ve also used a drop in water when I don’t have gum and my breath is gross, or to help settle my stomach.

5. Digize: for stomach issues, just apply topically. The smell of fennel is a little too much for me. But it wooooorks. I made a roller with digize and some peppermint (to distract me from the smell) and it totally works!

6. Citrus Fresh: I diffuse this all the time at work. It’s very calming and helps me feel focused. It’s also the oil that my boss loves the smell of, and since we share an office, this is key!

7. Frankincense: great for skin. I make my own moisturizer with it, but you could also put a few drops in your regular moisturizer. I’ve used it in bath salts. It has a rich scent, it could also be a good perfume base note. I used enough of it that I ran out, so sadly I haven’t used it in a while.

8. Raven: I use Raven when I’m feeling sick, especially any kind of congestion. I made a roller that I put on my neck, chest, and back. I diffuse it as well.

9. Lavender: all of the things. I will mix it with epsom salt and baking soda to make homemade bath salts. It takes two minutes maybe and then I keep them in a pretty jar on my counter for whenever I have time for a bath. Okay. Not that often. If I burn myself, I’ll put it on the burn and it feels much better. For a sunburn, I put a few drops in my aloe lotion. Of course I diffuse it, often mixed with other oils. Lavender and peppermint together is delicious! Sometimes I’ll use a toothpick drop in a cocktail or in lemonade.

10. Stress Away: this is a blend that contains a bit of vanilla extract. Vanilla is my favorite scent, and there’s no such thing as vanilla essential oil. This blend is the answer! I have a small bottle at work that I smell when things are overwhelming to help me remember that work stress is a small thing. It smells delicious. I also diffuse it sometimes at bedtime.

11. PanAway: I have two back up bottles of this, besides the open bottle on my oil rack. I love the smell (it has a bunch of mints in it) and I use it when I have sore muscles. I have also used it in bath salts, but you need to do this in moderation because some people don’t like the tingling feeling that mint will give you!

12. Tangerine: I mentioned above that I use it in my perfume. I also diffuse it- so freaking good. Some people use it in water.

Hit my up if you have more questions, or tell me what your favorite oil is!
