I have been using essential oils for about a month now and I have to say, why did I wait to try them out? I have had some great successes with the ones I have used. It is best if you have some supplies before you embark on your EO DIY journey. These are some of the basic supplies that are needed: roller bottles, carrier oil , beeswax, jars, lip balm tubes, coconut oil and shea butter. I bought all my supplies on Amazon or at Bulk Apothecary. Both have a great selection.
Success 1 – I tried Digest Ease from Eden’s Garden. I put some in a roller bottle with carrier oil and roll it on my stomach when I feel any type of nausea. IT WORKS!!! I just love it.
Success 2 – I tried Good Night also from Eden’s Garden. I also put this in a roller bottle with a carrier oil. I roll it on the bottom of my feet when I go to bed and it has really helped me get a better night’s sleep.
Success 3 – I made whipped body butter. It is a great body moisturizer and you only need a small amount. You can put any scent into it that you like.
Success 4 – I made acne stick to use on the occasional pimple that I get. It worked really well and I am going to use it for my 13-year-old son too.
I tried making a DIY diffuser with vodka, water and EOs, but I did not have as much success with that one. My next DIYs with EOs will be magnesium lotion, vapor rub and cleaning solution. I will do another post to share those outcomes. Pinterest is such a great resource for EO uses and it can be a little overwhelming. I will pass on the recipes that have worked for me so that you’ll have an easy reference.
What is your favorite way to use essential oils?
