Lemon- Great multipurpose oil

How I use it:
Add a couple drops to my glass water bottle. (way healthier than those restaurant lemons covered in fecal matter and who knows what else!)
I also use this in my face serum as lemon is good for helping fade acne scars. (DIY face serum coming soon!)

Lavender- The “go to” 

How I use it:
Apply directly to bug bites and sunburn areas.
Diffuse 3 drops with stress away in our bedroom at night.
Create a linen spray using by grabbing a 4oz glass spray bottle, 10 drops of lavender, 1/2 tsp witch hazel and fill the rest with water.

StressAway- The husbands”chill pill” 

How I use it:
Apply directly to wrists or temples to help relieve stress.
Diffuse 2-3 drops with lavender in our bedroom as night.

Joy- My “happy pill” 😉

How I use it:
Apply 2 drops directly to my chest in the mornings.
Diffuse 3-5 drops while I work in my jewelry studio.

Sleepyize- We’re just going to call this the unicorn oil of my life. It’s magical. Let’s just say my non sleeping baby now sleeps 10-12 hours a night! 

How I use it:
1 drop on his big toes before we zip the jammies up.
Diffuse 3 drops in his room at night.

Frankincense-  Time Machine

How I use it:
Attach the roller ball to the bottle and roll onto my face every night. Great for fine lines and overall youthfulness of the skin.
Add a couple drops to my water to help support my immune system.

Peace and Calming- Zen time

How I use it: 
Diffuse with purification. 
Mix 10 drops of peace and calming with 10 drops of citrus fresh in a roller bottle ( top the bottle off with fractionated coconut oil). Apply to wrists 


Purification- Odor eliminator

How I use it:
Diffuse 3 drops of purification with 2 drops of peace and calming in our office/ dog room. This is their “zen” blend. The room smells great and they don’t try to eat the door off while we are away 😉

Apply topically to any blemish that may be coming up.
