Sleepy Time Recipe 

Well, this is Julie coming to you from the Evergreen State. I thought I’d share my recipe for sleep support.  Actually, it supports relaxation, which in turn helps you sleep. I use a roller ball bottle for this one. It’s easy, and not much mess.

You Need:

10 ml roller ball bottle 

6 drops Lavender

5 drops Cedarwood 

3 drops Stress Away

2 drops Vetiver 

I used olive oil for my carrier base oil.

Directions:

First add all of the essential oils into the roller ball bottle.  Swirl it around to mix the oils. After mixing the essential oils together, fill the rest of the way with olive oil replace the roller top, then the lid, and swirl again to mix all the oils throughout the carrier oil.

Happy sleeping! I’ll be back tomorrow with anothe exciting post. Until then, good night, and sleep well.

Sincerely, 

Julie

Flourless Chocolate Delux Muffins

I got this recipe from The Essential Edge: Young Living News. This stuff is good. It has a wonderful chocolaty taste that you won’t want to miss out on, and I love the hint of orange that it has.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup creamy, unsweetened almond butter

1/3 cup coconut sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce 

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

Pinch of fine sea salt

1/3 cup cocoa powder 

2 scoops Pure Protein Complete – Chocolate  Deluxe

3/4 teaspoon baking soda 

1/3 cup mini chocolate chips 

Optional: 4 drops Orange Vitality essential oil for chocolate-orange muffins

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a 12 cup muffin tin with paper muffin liners. 

In a large bowl, combine almond butter, coconut sugar, applesauce,  vanilla extract, and sea salt. Stir until combined.  Sift in cocoa powder,  Pure Protein Complete and baking soda. Mix again. Stir in mini chocolate chips and orange vitality,  if using. Scoop batter into prepared muffin tins.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until just firm on top (do not over bake). Let cool completely on wire rack.

This recipe tastes especially good with the Orange Vitality in it. Try it both ways, and see what you think.

Sincerely,

Julie

Diffuser Recipe: Tree Scent With A Twist

Ok, I wanted to try something a little different for a diffuser recipe, so I got my diffuser, and made sure it was clean. I filled it to the fill line with water, then decided on my oil choices. These were my choices, and how much of each:

Tree scent with a twist recipe:

6 drops Cypress 

5 drops Cedarwood

3 drops Lemongrass 

2 drops clove

2 drops Cinnamon Bark 

After putting all of the oils in I swirled it around a bit to mix the oils, then I  plugged in my diffuser. I turned it on and waited a bit. The smell was wonderful. Try this, and let me know what you think. To me it a breath of fresh air, with a twist. 





These are just a few different things you can find at Amazon to help you with some of the recipes I will share on this blog.
Sincerely,
Julie

Ningxia Red and Red Shot 

Ok, so at the end of the month last month, I decided to buy myself some Ningxia Red for a promotion that Young Living Essential Oils was having. It was on sale, I would get 2 bottles of Ningxia Red and a 5 oz bottle of Red Shot. It was a great deal, and I wanted to try it, so I bought it.

Well, yesterday the box was delivered to me. I didn’t realize how big those bottles of Ningxia Red were. They are pretty big. I put them in the fridge to get cool. I’ve heard it tastes better that way.

I waited until today to open my first bottle of Ningxia Red. I poured 2oz of it in a cup, then I added my tube of Ningxia Nitro,  and one drop of Red Shot. Then, I drank a little. Yum. I drank the rest of it down.

Not only did it taste good, but I felt pretty good for the rest of the day. I’m going to drink at least one 2oz shot per day, and see what it does for me. I go love the taste, and how I felt today.

Sincerely Julie.

Changed up my face serum.

cropped-cropped-FB_IMG_1508384971954.jpgToday, I was in need of a new face serum, AND I didn’t have my lavender, or frankincense to do so. You may ask, what did you do? Well I looked up oils for the face, and found some replacements that would be great. It’s a different scent, but I Love it. It’s more of a lemon scent.

For this recipe I used lemongrass, Tea Tree, and lemon. Nice combination,  and my face feels good. Here is my recipe:

Tea Tree Essential Oil – 

Tea Tree oil, also known as Melaleuca alternifolia or Melaleuca oil, is one of the most widely used and extensively researched essential oils, making it a must-have for every home. Because the benefits of Tea Tree oil include cleansing properties and a refreshing scent, this versatile oil can be used for everything from home cleaning solutions to skin care.

Keep a bottle of Tea Tree essential oil in your house to make homemade household cleaners, air fresheners, and linen spritzers. You can also find Tea Tree oil uses in your personal care and beauty routine. Incorporate this moisturizing yet cleansing oil into skin care applications and hair treatments for a spa-quality upgrade!

Tea Tree Oil Essential Oil Uses
Add to water in a small spritz bottle to refresh linens and towels.
Diffuse to combat stale or offensive odors in the home.
Combine with citrus scents such as Lemon or Lemongrass to create a natural deodorant.
Use Tea Tree’s cleansing properties for homemade soaps and moisturizers.
Apply to skin as part of your nighttime routine.
Comb through hair for added shine and freshness.

Lemongrass Essential Oil –

Originating in Southeast Asia, Lemongrass essential oil is distilled from the leaves and woody stalks of the lemongrass plant. With a subtle citrus-herb scent, Lemongrass oil offers a sophisticated and relaxing aroma that transforms your home’s environment.

Try diffusing Lemongrass for an aroma that can inspire a sense of clarity and relaxation for you and your whole family. Enhance that relaxing aroma by adding Lemongrass oil to your cleaning products, dishes, and laundry. Add 3–4 drops in a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry, or your all-purpose cleaner formula for an exotic, clean-smelling boost. Its relaxing aroma also makes it a great complement to post-workout massage.

Lemongrass is a key ingredient in En-R-Gee™, Ortho Ease® Massage Oil, and Ortho Sport® Massage Oil

Lemongrass essential oil uses:
Dilute Lemongrass with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for massage after workouts, sports, or just a long and busy day. The fresh aroma will help you unwind.
To fill your home with the clean and refreshing smell of Lemongrass, diffuse 8–10 drops in your favorite diffuser and add a few drops to your cleaning formulas.
Make your own substitute for chemical-based air fresheners. Add up to 10 drops to a small spray bottle filled with distilled water and spritz over carpets, furniture, and linens to eliminate stale odors.

Lemon Essential Oil –

Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons, giving its aroma all the brightness of the freshly picked fruit. Cheerful, sweet, and nostalgic, Lemon oil can eliminate odors and infuse your whole home with its clean, lemon-drop scent when diffused.

With its bright and joyful aroma, Lemon oil benefits skin and hair as much as its aroma benefits your environment. Your teens can add a drop to their evening moisturizer to reduce the appearance of blemishes, while you can add it to your conditioner for an aromatic treat that smoothes and shines the look of your hair. Because some citrus oils like Lemon can cause photosensitivity, avoid applying to exposed skin before spending time outside.

This oil is a key ingredient in many hair and skin care products, Thieves® cleaning products, and essential oil blends such as Thieves®, Citrus Fresh™, Clarity™, Joy™ and Harmony™.

Lemon oil uses:
Boost your home cleaning with the cheerful scent of fresh Lemons! Add a few drops to naturally derived floor, window, and surface cleaning solutions. Do not use Lemon oil on granite or stone, as it may etch the surface.
Make Lemon part of your beauty routine, adding it to skin care products to reduce the appearance of blemishes or to conditioner and DIY hair masques to give your hair a smoother, shinier look.
Diffuse Lemon alone or with other citrus and crisp-smelling oils such as Tangerine, Grapefruit, Orange, Bergamot, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Tarragon, and Eucalyptus Radiata to create an aromatic environment that is clean-smelling and positive

Diffusers

If you are looking for diffusers for your oils, and you want to make a whole room smell good with the aroma of good smelling essential oils here are a few that can be found on Amazon that you might like. 

Here is a list of diffusers:


These are just a few of the diffusers they have on sale. Every one of them is under $25.

For the Young Living people, we have some diffusers for sale at our website:

Since I am a Young Living Essential Oils distributor I am more apt to buy a diffuser from Young Living,  but Amazon is a less expensive avenue for the tight budget, and the diffusers work great. 

Respiratory support for a rollerball top bottle 


Ok, so I wanted something in a rollerball bottle for when I can’t use my diffuser, so yesterday I decided to make myself one. In it I used RC (Respiratory Care), Thieves, Cypress, Tea Tree, and Orange. I used grapeseed oil as my carrier oil, but you can use your favorite carrier oil.

Here is My recipe:

10 drops RC

10 drops Thieves

10 drops Cypress

10 drops Tea Tree

10 drops Orange

Carrier oil of your choice.

To start with you open your roller top bottle and take the roller top off. Next you will add the essential oils To the bottle. Once you have 10 drops of each oil in the bottle you need to put your carrier oil in and fill the rest of the way, leaving enough space at the top to put the roller back on. I used it last night and it gave good respiratory support.

Respiratory Support Recipe For The Diffuser

After testing many different oils, and ways of using, I’ve finally found a combination for the diffuser that gives me good support that I can rely on. I finally remembered that I still had some RC (respiratory care) left that I hadn’t used, so that was my first ingredient. I also put in Orange, Tea Tree, and a bit of Thieves.
Here is exactly what I did:
3 drops of RC.
3 drops of Tea Tree
3 drops of Thieves
3 drops of Orange
After putting all of the oils in the water, I swirled it around a bit to mix the oils. Then I turned on the diffuser.  I Love the scent, and it gives great support.
