How to use #lavender essential oils #YLEO #compliantLavender
This is one of the essential oils that I use the most so of course we are going to talk about it first! It's one of those things that you can just use for everything. My friend Lindsay and I joke that the first rule of essential oil use is "When in doubt, always use lavender".

1. Sleep and Relaxation
I will diffuse lavender, rub it on my feet, put a few drops on my pillow, or take a relaxing lavender bath with epsom salts before bed to get a good night's sleep. But if you want something fancy, check out this lavender magnesium bedtime spray.

Lavender can also work to help relax your dog. My mom has a pup who is terrified of thunder and she rubs this on his ears (not inside them) and chest with lavender when a storm is coming. He doesn't even need his thunder coat anymore! Be sure to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil by 75% for toy breeds, 50% for medium size dogs, and 25% for larger dogs. 

2. Great for Skin!
For the support of healthy skin, I have a 1 oz salve jar full of coconut oil and I've added 25-35 drops of lavender. I love using lavender in all of my DIY skin care products because it's just so amazing for healthy skin support. LOVE IT! Check out these recipes for more ideas!
    3. Skin Around Eyes
    This is an amazing trick, but adding some lavender to coconut oil and rubbing it around your eyes (not in your eyes) can help support the skin ! My friend Darlene introduced me to this trick and wow! It works so well! If you get essential oil in your eyes, wash it out with carrier oil-- not water!

    4. Butterflies/Nerves
    In research, it has been demonstrated that Lavender may be helpful for a normal stress response. I like to wear it in my diffuser necklace daily, but diffusing it for 3-4 times a day (20 minutes each) can be very helpful as well.

    If you want more ways to use lavender--- trust me there are many, many more!!

    How to use #DiGize Essential oil #YLEO #compliantDiGize
    DiGize is a fabulous essential oil blend that contains Ginger, Anise, Fennel, Peppermint, Tarragon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, and Juniper essential oils, and includes naturally occurring constituents like menthol, citrol, and zingiberen.

    1. Support and Maintain Digestive Health
    DiGize is ALWAYS in my purse and I take it before every meal when I go out to eat to help support normal and healthy digestion.

    2. Travel 
    When I'm traveling, I always bring DiGize because it's a great way to support our digestive system when traveling abroad.

    3. Daily Wellness Regiment
    Use DiGize with every meal, along with Essentialzymes-4™, to support a daily wellness regiment.

    4. Nutritional Supplement
    DiGize is an ideal complement to the nutritional supplements ComforTone® and JuvaTone®.

    How to use #purification essential oil #YLEO #compliant
    Purification is a blend of essential oils that smells so amazing! It contains Lemongrass, Citronella, Rosemary, Lavandin, Myrtle, and Melaleuca essential oils and it's so gentle on the skin. This is one of my mom's favorite essential oils to wear as a perfume!

    1. Odor Removal
    This is a big deal in my house because I live with a firefighter, a dog and three cats. Odors are everywhere! I use this carpet freshener to help lift odors from my carpets! Several of my friends are using some sort of medium (baking soda in a sock, cotton balls) with a couple drops of purification to place inside of stinky shoes to remove the odors.

    2. Summer Time Spray
    I love using purification in the summer! Not only does it smell so fresh and clean, but it can help keep the outdoors annoyance free. Here are some DIY recipes:  body butter and a spray recipe. You can also use this on your canine friends in a dog safe recipe!

    3. Deodorant 
    Since Purification is so good at removing odors, I love to use it as an extra boost to my homemade deodorant recipe. This deodorant works for me in the middle of a Florida summer-- I don't know what more you want than that!!! Other people simply mix purification with water and spray their pits. They swear it works, but I'm not that brave. Not in Florida.

    4. Hotel Spray
    I admit that I may have a paranoia about traveling. When I travel, I always take a 1 oz spray bottle full of distilled water that I've added 1/4 tsp of salt which has soaked in 15 drops of purification. I'll spray it on the bed as soon as I get to the hotel to help clean the bed!

    How to use #lemon essential oil #YLEO #compliant
    Lemon is one of the biggest powerhouses in the essential oil world when it comes to cleaning both your house and your body! It also tastes great in water or baked goods!

    1. Dish Soap
    DIY Dish soap took me years to make because all the recipes online seem so difficult, but when I came up with this Dish Soap recipe which has a lemon essential oil at it's core-- it was a breeze!

    2. Cleaning Cabinets
    My wonderful friend Darlene uses lemon mixed with a little olive oil to clean her cabinets. It really makes them shine and look like new!

    3. Adhesive Remover
    1–2 drops to remove gum, oil, grease spots, glue or adhesive, and crayon from most surfaces. One of my good friends even used it to help her husband after he super glued his fingers together while working on a project. Click here to see how easy it is!

    4. Wood Polish
    When my wood gets dull, I turn to lemon essential oil mixed with some every day common ingredients. This Wood Polish recipe features lemon, orange and cedar wood, but you could simply use just lemon essential oils as well.

    How to use #peppermint essential oil #YLEO #compliant
    Peppermint seems to be one of the favorite essential oils because it's good for so many things! Did you know that peppermint can support a healthy digestive system

    1. Muscle Aches from working out
    Peppermint is my go to for post-workout aches. I put 1-2 drops of peppermint directly on my body when I feel achey from working out.

    2. Hair Care
    I love using essential oils for hair care! My hair has become much more healthier now that I incorporate different essential oils into my hair care routine. Peppermint can help support a healthy scalp: DIY shampoo recipe.

    3. Support a Healthy Digestive System
    I love using peppermint to help support my digestive system. I take 1 drop a day in my water using our favorite Mint Water drink! You can also use the vitaflex points or rub it over your belly to help maintain healthy digestion.

    4. DIY Lip Balm
    I have an obsession with lip balm and this is a fabulous recipe. You can substitute peppermint for other essential oils too if you like, but here are a couple more recipes as well:

    How to use #panaway essential oil #YLEO #compliant
    To be honest, I wasn't crazy about PanAway at first (it smells a bit like Vicks Vapor Rub), but it was the first essential oil that Clint loved and I've grown to really enjoy it. It has really helped him after a long day at work (he's a firefighter).

    1. Supports a Healthy Muscular System
    This is great for all sorts of minor muscular discomfort of daily life-- just make sure you read the instructions on the bottle for proper dilutions!

    2. Post Workout Relief
    Clint loves a PanAway massage. I add 2-4 drops to 1 TBSP of coconut oil and give him a back rub. It can also be applied to achy, sore, or tired muscles for working out. No massage needed! 

    3. Relaxing Post Workout Bath: You can also take a soothing epsom salt bath with PanAway: 1 cup of epsom salt with 4 drops of essential oil or you can use this recipe

    How to use #frankincense essential oil #compliant #YLEO
    This is one of the most famous and oldest essential oils. I remember hearing about it as a child in church and it being mentioned frequently around Christmas. However, I didn't have my first experience with Frankincense until I was nearly 30. It was love at first sniff! Seriously, this stuff is ahhhhh-maz-ing!

    1. Skin Care
    Frankincense is know as one of the best natural ways to support healthy skin. I love to use it in all of my DIY beauty recipes, but I particularly love it in this DIY Facial Mask. In my opinion, Frankincense and Lavender are pretty much the power house of skin care and help to keep that fantastic complexion. I love combining the two and at least one of them is in all of my DIY skin care (or hair care) products.

    2. Healthy Nails
    Did you know that Frankincense can help support healthy nails? I like to take this in a capsule every day as part of my daily beauty routine.

    3. Relaxation
    I just love frankincense when I need to relax. There is nothing like it! I dare you to take 5 deep whiffs and tell me you don't feel calmer, relaxed and just ready for the rest of the day!

    How to use #Thieves essential oil #compliant #YLEO
    Thieves may be the most well known of all the Young Living essential oil blends. It's being used in hospitals as a cleaner, but yet it's gentle enough that it can be used safely on children.

    1. Foaming Hand Soap
    As a nurse, I have an obsession with clean hands, but the traditional soaps tend to make my hands dry and cracked. This DIY hand soap is gentle on skin, too

    2. Cleaning Spray
    This purifying spray is one of my absolute favorite things! I carry a small vial in my purse to spray on door knobs, tables, carts and even as a hand spray. The best part is that this is so gentle that it can also be used as a breath freshener.

    3. DIY Dental Recipes
    Making your own toothpaste is easy and effective! I feel better knowing that my family isn't being exposed to toxic chemicals in their dental products, but that Thieves is helping to keep our teeth clean and gums healthy! Kid friendly toothpaste or one for adults . Also try this DIY Mouthwash.

    How to use #StressAway essential oil #YLEO #compliant
    Stress Away
    Stress Away isn't part of the Every Day Oil kit, but it is a bonus in the Premium Starter Kit. Normally you can purchase it two ways: The bottle or the Roll-on. The Premium Starter Kit comes with a roller filament so you can change your bottle to a roll-on!

    1. Stress Buster
    The Premium Starter Kit comes with one Roller Filament to make an essential oils a roll-on application. I love putting it on stress away! I keep this in my purse and I will roll it on my wrists, neck, or behind my ears when I need a little Stress Busting power.

    2. Perfume
    I love this as a perfume. It's really is a light, happy and fresh scent. I prefer to just roll it on using the roller filament because that's easy and I'm lazy {wink}

    3. Salt Scrubs
    Do you want to give the gift of a less stressful day? Then make some easy salt scrubs to hand out to your friends. They'll enjoy this gift I'm sure!

    4. Relaxing Bath
    You can end your day with a stress away bath to help get rid of the every day tensions.

    And those are some of my favorite ways to use the essential oils in the premium starter kit. I'd love to hear some of your favorites as well!
