I am participating in and supporting my doTerra team in constructing a Facebook training camp on essential oils. It’s a go at your own pace group to help new users understand the oils and correctly use the ones they’ve purchased. I love the support and enthusiasm of this team in continually thinking of how to expand and support everyone’s oil use knowledge and welcome newcomers joining us.
In my own reflection of this camp, I started thinking about some of the unique ways I use oils and how my own experience with them has expanded since I first started using them. There’s always so much more to explore with oils and while I feel very knowledgeable in a lot of areas there’s always more to learn
It is comforting to know that with a moderate level of knowledge I can keep my family healthy, our home clean and spend a lot less on doctors and cleaners to accomplish these things.
In addition to using our diffusers and applying oils to our person I have found some creative ways to use oils including:
Peppermint inside my motorcycle helmet. Peppermint helps with focus and attention so it seems a handy place to use it when I’m on a ride. 2 drops in the liner
A drop of Peppermint in my coffee or hot chocolate for a great twist – 1 drop is all
My new hand warmers containing Sunny Citrus. See prior blog for details. It is uplifting and positive while keeping your hands toasty warm
Washing machine de-gunking using white vinegar and Purify. Breaks down the gunk in the soap and softener compartments
Purify in the laundry to work on the really dirty, smelly loads
Lavender lemonade. Very divine
Frankincense and Melaleuca on my face daily to help with acne, wrinkles and tone
Soaps – we have been making our own! My favorite so far is the Rosemary-Lemon Oatmeal soap
Lotion bars – I’m putting OnGuard in these to help kill germs while we moisturize our hands
Lips – I made some lip balm with Lavender and Peppermint.
Beard balm – conditions and softens my husband’s beard – I put Siberian Fir and Patchouli in the mix
Headache balm – this is a mix of Peppermint, Lavender and Frankincense with melted beeswax. Super simple and effective.
Counter top cleaner – simple Lemon and water – ok this one isn’t that unique but the cleaner is fabulous! I also like to use Melaleuca on the bathroom counters to kill germs in between cleanings.
Melaleuca on the home’s air filters to purify the air and control allergens throughout the house
Lemongrass, Basil, Marjoram and Myrrh for hypothyroid support
Geranium in my night facial cream
And this is only the highlights of how we’ve incorporated oils into our home! Check out my Pinterest board for many more ideas, recipes and ways to use essential oils.
