Muscular Aches – When you ache

Are you looking for a blend of essential oils that isn’t quite so strong smelling but will still be great for those muscular aches?

Try this blend. A little softer than our more often suggested blend but still able to work wonders!

Rosemary– 10 drops
Lavender – 10 drops
Fractionated coconut oil – 2 oz

Blend the essential oils together then add to the Fractionated coconut oil . Blend well. Use for massage or body rub over the achy muscles.

A very simple and floral aphrodisiac blend to be used with no lights on!!

Jasmine absolute – 8 drops
Rose absolute – 6 drops
Neroli – 4 drops
Camellia oil– 2 oz.

Blend essential oils together then add to Camellia oil. Let this blend for a few days before using if possible. Check for the strength of the scent – If too strong dilute with more Camellia oil.

NASTY Odor remover Blend

Ever discover an old wet swimsuit that had been forgotten or a towel from the beach that got tossed in with the beach toys.

Oh Yeah – You know what I’m talking about. It smells awful. Well, this blend it not for those articles of clothing – as you can just toss those in the laundry or if they are damaged due to the mildew – you’ll have to toss them away. But this blend is great at removing nasty smelling air from any place they might be lurking.

Litsea Cubeba – 60 drops
Orange – 60 drops
Grapefruit– 40 drops
Cinnamon leaf – 30 drops
Cassia – 10 drops

Blend these all together in an glass bottle. Next you have a few options on how you want to use this blend depending on where the Nasty Odor is emanating from.

If it is a large room that has a nasty odor – put several drops in your fan diffuser or in a melted tart in a tart warmer. . Let diffuser for at least 2 hours. Add more of the blend as needed.

If it is in a small area such as a closet place several drops on a Terra Cotta Discand place in the room.

One other method is to add equal portions of this blend to an Coconut Emulsifier and then add to distilled water as a room spray.

Better than My Mom’s Remedy when you have a cold!

Rosemary– 80 drops (or 4 mL)
Eucalyptus radiata 40 drops (or 2mL)
Eucalyptus globulus – 40 drops (or 2mL)
Peppermint – 20 drops (or 1mL)
Cedarwood – 5 drops
Nutmeg– 5 drops
Thyme Linalol – 5 drops
Pine needle - 5 drops

Blend all in an glass bottle. Mix well then use in any diffuser or a personal nasal inhaler. This blend can also be mixed with a lotion or carrier oil and applied to the skin.

This will make about a 10 ml Bottle so you won't need to blend for several days.

This blend can also be mixed with a lotion, cream or carrier oil or blend and applied to the skin.

Suggested use:

Mix no more than 36 drops per 2 ounces of carrier oil (Your choice of carrier oil – suggestions would be Fractionated coconut oil or jojoba.) The 36 drops in 2 ounces of carrier is about a 3% dilution.

If you will be using it on children between 5-12 years dilute it to about 20 drops per 2 ounces of carrier oil. Apply just a few drops of the carrier oil/essential oil mix to the chest.

You won’t need to use a ton – like you do of that sticky ointment!

Caution: Due to the Eucalyptus and Peppermint in this blend do not use as a massage oil on children or infants under 2 – especially on their chest.

Eucalyptus and Peppermint cooling vapors can cause young children to have a spasm occur that may block their airway.

Also if used in young child’s room – only diffuse a small amount – do not saturate the air. Remember more is not better when it comes to the use of essential oils.


Penny’s Favorite Blend – with a new Twist!

Spearmint – 10 drops
Grapefruit– 8 drops
Lavender – 6 drops
Niaouli– 4 drops
Ginger – 2 drops

I love the smell of Spearmint and Grapefruitblended together but recently I wanted to try to make a blend that not only would help me be more alert but would also add a few more twists to the excitement.

So I tried this interesting combination. Give it a try and see what you think. It is great at deodorizing any room too!


Spice is Nice

Cinnamon leaf – 2 drops
Ginger – 2 drops
Nutmeg – 2 drops
Cassia – 2 drops
Clove bud -2 drops

Blend the above together and use in any diffuser. A Tealight warmer style diffusers is wonderful with this blend as it adds a little ambiance and warmth to the scent.

Add a drop or two of Orange to make it more festive.
