75 Ways To Use Essential Oils

3700

When I first started using essential oils,

I had no idea how much I would use them.

From the very first day I opened my first bottle of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil, I have been able to use my oils everyday.

I am so pleased to have been able to find an all natural product that I can use in my home to reduce the amount of chemicals I use on a daily basis.

I have come across numerous lists of ways to use oils in our home and I always amazed when I find another way I can use them.

I know that I will never run out of ways to use essential oils and I would love to be able to help everyone make the switch from chemicals to natural products.

If you would like more information on how to purchase Young Living Essential Oils please contact me and I will be happy to assist you.

Young Living’s Essential Oils can be purchased through my website https://www.youngliving.org/jmccabe72

At Home Spa Treatment

 

IMG_4390

IMG_4391

These days with school and the farm I find it hard to get my

“Me Time.”

With my limited free time, I am having to find ways to still be able to enjoy my spa treatments.

I will openly admit that I am a Pinterest Junky and I have to be very careful about the amount of time I spend scrolling through thousands upon thousands of health and beauty pins.

I once called Facebook the “Black Hole” for time management,

but now it is Pinterest for me. ;)

My only problem with Pinterest is that I “Pin” something and then I cannot remember where I “Pinned” it.

I am sure, I am Not Alone with this!

With that said, I have “pinned” many different “Spa Treatment” things all over the place, but where I could not tell you without going on a 2 or 3 hour search through all of my pins.

However, I did find something that I was able to remember the ingredients (3 things I have in my home at all times!)

And I was able to make it without having

to find the pin with great success!

Yay Me!

So let me get on with the

“How-To” of making an Amazing At Home Spa Treatment!

At Home Microdermabrasion!

Yes, I said that correctly Microdermabrasion!

You will need virgin coconut oil, baking soda, and pure essential oils.

See Simple ingredients! :)

I only use Young Living Essential Oils as they are Safe,

Therapeutic Grade, Organic,

and simply The Best oils we can use in or on our bodies.

The recipe can be doubled, tripled, or multiplied many times.

It is a simple 2:2:2 ratio of coconut oil, baking soda, and essential oil.

If you do multiply the recipe always remember increase

the essential oils to ensure the correct ratio.

IMG_4388IMG_4386

IMG_4387

2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil

 IMG_4384

2 Tablespoons Baking Soda

IMG_4385

2 Drops Essential Oil

( I use Frankincense, but Lavender, Helichrysum,

and Geranium are also wonderful for our skin)

 IMG_4387

In a small bowl combine softened (not melted) Coconut Oil with Baking Soda into a paste, then add essential oils and mix throughly.

The recipe makes enough for 2 to 3 treatments

and can be used in the shower with great ease.

 IMG_4389

That’s It!

Now you have just made your own at home

Microdermabrasion treatment!

Now, How to Use your homemade Microdermabrasion treatment.

Whether you are in the shower or in front of your sink, you will want to use this treatment on a wet face, not dry.

First wet you face with warm water, use 1/3 to 1/2 of the mixture and begin to massage your entire face, throat, and décolleté with small, circular motions in the upwards direction.

You do not need to scrub the mixture, the baking soda will exfoliate for you without having to scrub.

I follow this treatment up with a homemade mixture of

coconut oil and frankincense oil.

This treatment is also great for rough elbows and dry hands and feet.

It truly is simply amazing!

Here is what Wikipedia says about Microdermabrasion:

“Microdermabrasion may be performed to help diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, and photo-damage, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and shallow acne scars. A further benefit of microdermabrasion is enhanced skin penetration by other skin creams and serums. Removing dead skin (startum corneum of the epidermis) will aid in the penetration of skin care products and medications by up to 10-50%. The controlled skin exfoliation afforded by microdermabrasion will afford make-up and self-tanning products to go on much more smoothly.”

Here is a little information on the benefits of using

Frankincense on our skin.

Ancient peoples quickly learned the value

of frankincense in skin care.

The Egyptians made rejuvenating face masks with it, and Ovid, the Roman poet, noted in his book on skin care (Medicamina Faciei) that frankincense was excellent for toilet purposes.

Frankincense continues to be an impressive skin care ingredient.

While often ignored in modern formularies, it is astringent, slightly anti-inflammatory, and has incredible ability to

rejuvenate skin and eradicate wrinkles.

Its antioxidant properties and cell regeneration abilities lead to smoother, more youthful skin.

It tones and lifts skin to increase firmness and minimize pores, which is why the Egyptians used it in facial masks.

Excellent for acne care because of its antiseptic properties.

One of the more impressive benefits of Frankincense in skin care is its ability to prevent and fade scars.

It has been reported to reduce the appearance of discoloration and redness due to blemishes, irritation, and even stretch marks. 

Here is a little info on why I ONLY use Young Living Essential Oils.

When I was new to essential oils, something that I learned really quickly was that there is a BIG(really important) difference between the types of Essential Oils.

For all I knew, oils were oils, and even though I knew about lavender scented products in the grocery store – I had no idea about the possibilities of transforming my health, naturally, with Essential Oils.

Let me explain, all Young Living Essentials Oils are

Therapeutic grade and Earth Kosher-Certified.

That means care has been given to every single drop, to ensure that the medicinal properties have been retained.

There are 4 Grades of Essential Oils:

Grade A oils are pure therapeutic quality and are usually made from organically grown plants distilled at the proper temperatures using steam distillation.

Grade B oils are food grade; they may contain synthetics, pesticides, fertilizers, extenders, or carrier oils.

Grade C oils are perfume grade and may contain the same type of adulterating chemicals as food grade oils.

They usually contain solvents which are used to gain a higher yield of oil per harvest. Solvents are normally cancerous.

Floral Water is a byproduct of the distillation process, a very high quality if it comes from a Grade A distillation process.

Accordingly it is of low quality if it comes from poor quality raw materials and or poor distillation processes.

It is usually found in skin and hair products.

A WORD ABOUT PURITY

Don’t be fooled!

Young Living’s oils are therapeutic and medicinal.

They are derived directly from the plant – not in a laboratory – and they are never extended or adulterated with chemicals.

Don’t think that you can buy less expensive

essential oils and get the same results.

ADULTERATED OILS AND THEIR DANGERS

Today much of the lavender oil sold in America is the hybrid called lavandin, which is cut with chemicals to improve the fragrance.

Then solvents are added and it is sold in the

United States as lavender oil.

Most consumers don’t know the difference, and are happy to buy it for $3 to $10 per half ounce in health food stores, beauty salons, grocery and department stores, and through mail order.

Some people wonder why they do not get the benefit they expected and conclude that essential oils do not have much value. Most likely, they purchased either a synthetic or adulterated oils.

Adulterated and mislabeled essential oils present

dangers for consumers.

One woman who had heard of the ability of lavender oil to heal burns used “lavender oil” purchased from a local health food store when she spilled boiling water on her arm.

But the pain intensified and the burn worsened, so she later complained that lavender oil was worthless for healing burns.

When her “lavender” oil was analyzed, it was found to be lavandin, the hybrid lavender that is chemically very different.

Adulterated oils that are cut with synthetic extenders can cause rashes, burning, and skin irritations.

Solvents can all cause allergic reactions,

besides being devoid of any therapeutic effects.

Even so-called “nature identical” essential oils (structured essential oils that have been chemically duplicated using

5 to 15 of the essential oil’s primary chemical compounds in synthetic form) can produce unwanted side effects or toxicities.

Isolated compounds may be toxic;

however pure essential oils, in most cases, are not.

This is because natural essential oils contain hundreds of different compounds, some of which balance

and counteract each other’s effects.

 Quality does matter — and your health is worth it.

Lavender Does It Again!

Young Living’s Lavender Essential Oil Never Fails!

As soon as the lavender oil was on the burn the pain was gone.

I applied lavender oil on it again before I went to bed and when I woke up the next morning, the mark from the burn was completely gone and it did not even look like my hand was every burned.
