Navigating the world of essential oils is like starting a journey into nature’s pharmacy. Today, I want to share some of my favorite blends and concoctions, part 3 of this 3-part series. If you missed post 1 and 2, check them out here and here. EOs have become staples in my household for a long time, and for good reason. They offer not only delightful, nontoxic smells but also powerful wellness benefits. There are so many Essential Oil uses! Essential oils are just a part of everything here at the LeBlanc household from cough-and-cold remedies, to homemade cleaning products, perfume and body creams (and of course a super yummy smelling home!). Let’s dive into everything you can create with the powerhouses of EOs!
Two of My Current Favorite Essential Oil Blends
C’mon Get Hormone Happy Grapefruit
- 2 drops Lemon
- 2 drops Vanilla
- 2 drops Grapefruit
- If using a mini jar – just follow the recipe and fill with your favorite carrier oil of choice. If using a roller – double the recipe and fill the roller halfway with carrier oil.
Groove is in the Heart of Hormone Balance
- Lavender – 2 drops
- Orange – 2 drops
- Jasmine – 1 drop
- Using a rollerball, dilute EO’s with sweet almond oil (or fractionated coconut oil) to preference (I actually double the recipe and add teaspoon of carrier oil because I like it strong!).
Humid Environment Hack
As a family living in Louisiana, we put up with a great deal of humidity. It prompted me to create something I call “Sweetie Cream.” This involves blending coconut oil with a teaspoon of organic beeswax over hot water. The beeswax helps maintain the cream’s consistency in a humid environment. It is a great little hack if you live in a warmer climate because it allows the cream to hold its consistency. After I create the cream, I add whatever oils I desire!
Immune Support for Little Ones
As a mom, keeping my little one’s immune system strong is a top priority. I turn a Thieves oil bottle into a rollerball. I mix one-third Thieves oil with two-thirds coconut oil. This rollerball becomes our go-to during seasonal transitions. We also use it when we need immune support. We apply it to our feet before heading out. We also utilize it when we return home. It has led to fewer sick days for my little ones!
Aromatic Perfume with a Purpose
Say goodbye to commercial perfumes loaded with endocrine-disrupting chemicals. I’ve replaced them with a delightful blend of Ylang Ylang and Grapefruit in a rollerball. Ylang Ylang supports female hormones, while Grapefruit adds an awakening touch. It’s not only a perfume; it’s a mood-enhancing, toxin-free experience!
Nature’s Powerful Multi-Purpose Solution
Thieves Cleaner from Young Living is a game-changer in household cleaning. I dilute it with water; a capful is all it takes to create a potent, multi-purpose cleaner. This natural solution keeps my home clean. It also replaces harsh, toxic options. Thieves Cleaner has become my go-to. I use it for everything from countertops to showers. It offers a cheap and eco-friendly way to clean.
A Healthier Home
Essential oils go beyond pleasant aromas; they are potent tools for holistic well-being. As a mom and a practitioner, I’ve seen the excellent impact of using these oils daily. We utilize them for crafting blends, boosting immunity, and cleaning the home. They offer a natural and effective way to reduce toxins. They also support the immune system and enhance wellness. If you’re intrigued by using essential oils, I invite you to explore them. Essential oils are a great way to dip your toe into the world of natural wellness and healing. Let the aromatic adventure begin!
