Yoga Mat Spray with Essential Oils

If you follow me on instagram @thesavvyoiler, you may have seen my “flipagram,” video where I showed how to make your own yoga mat spray with Young Living Essential Oils.  It is really easy and actually fun to do!  I love making my own everyday household cleaning products, because I know what is going in them.  This spray is ALL-NATURAL and CHEMICAL-FREE!  You will also find making your own will save you LOTS of money!

For more information on cleaning with Young Living Essential Oils, check out my post, “Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils.”  For more information on how you can SAVE money with Young Living Essential Oils, check out my post, “How to SAVE Money with Essential Oils.”

Yoga Mat Spray

What you need – 

  • 1 2 oz. spray bottle – I always suggest using dark glass bottles.  Plastic bottles can sometimes leach chemicals, especially if you’re using citrus oils.  Also, dark bottles are preferred, because they help protect the essential oil.
  • 1 funnel – I only had a plastic one to use for this recipe, but I only used it for adding the distilled water.
  • Witch Hazel
  • Melaleuca Alternifolia also known as Tea Tree essential oil
  • Lavender essential oil
  • 1 Small towel

Why Melaleuca (Tea Tree) oil?

Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) oil is a very powerful essential oil known for promoting cleansing and purity.*  It can be found in many of Young Living’s beauty products, because of its refreshing properties.*  It is a very gentle oil, even for sensitive skin.

Why Lavender oil?

Lavender oil has a sweet floral aroma which makes it a wonderful addition to many cleaning recipes.  Lavender being one of the most versatile and gentle of the essential oils can also be used for cleaning and purifying.*

How to Make Yoga Mat Spray

  1. Using a glass spray bottle and funnel, fill the spray bottle 3/4 of the way with distilled water
  2. Fill the remaining bottle with Witch Hazel leaving a little room
  3. Add 15 drops of Melaleuca (Tea Tree) oil to the spray bottle very carefully or with a glass dropper
  4. Add 10 drops of Lavender oil to the spray bottle very carefully or with a glass dropper
  5. Attach the sprayer back onto the bottle and shake well and gently
  6. Spray yoga mat thoroughly
  7. Wipe down with a small towel
  8. Enjoy your clean yoga mat and its lovely aroma!

My April Essential Rewards!

My monthly Young Living Essential Oils order is here!  It was exciting to see the BIG box printed with the “Seed to Seal” logo on my doorstep.  What’s even better?  Most of this box was FREE!  Click on Essential Rewards to learn more about Young Living’s optional monthly autoship program.  Also, check out my post, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion,” to see what comes FREE with a qualifying order this month.

Check out my April Essential Rewards – FREE FOR APRIL '15

Cardamom

Cardamom essential oil is a new one I am adding to our collection.  It is known for protecting and supporting the stomach and digestive system.*  It also can alleviate occasional fatigue and nervousness.*

Hope

Hope is another new essential oil for my family.  I love the oils in this blend.  It has a base of Almond oil, Melissa, Myrrh, Juniper and Spruce.  These oils combined create feelings of strength, joy, positivity, grounding and most importantly, “hope.”

Lemon

We are stocking up on Lemon essential oil!  We use this in our, “DIY Spring Essential Oil Roll-On,” along with Lavender and Peppermint essential oils.

Patchouli

Patchouli can be found in some of our favorites, such as, Peace & Calming and DiGize essential oil blends and in the Animal Scents Ointment.

Young Living states, Patchouli is sometimes called, “the scent of the sixties,” because of its musky, earthy and exotic aroma.  Its aroma may not appeal to some, but the oil has many benefits many people do not know about.  One benefit is it can soothe dry skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.*  It is also known to support the digestive system and ease nausea.*  See how you can use Patchouli in a diffuser blend for sleep on my post, “8 BEST Diffuser Blends for Sleep!

Thyme

Thyme is one of the most powerful antioxidants known.*  It supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous and other body systems.*

Thieves Household Cleaner

I ordered the biggest bottle available this month!  We are still trying to rid our house of winter and we are freshening things up for spring and summer.  Thieves Household Cleaner is an ALL-PURPOSE cleaner that is ALL-NATURAL, SAFE, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE and VERY AFFORDABLE. To see how we use Thieves Household Cleaner, check out my post, “Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils!.”

Cinnamint and Lavender Lip Balms

I absolutely LOVE the Young Living Lip Balms.  I am not sure which one is my favorite, because they are all equally wonderful.  If you are looking for an ALL-NATURAL alternative for soothing chapped lips, I would definitely recommend these.*

Lavender

Lavender was a FREEBIE this month for the, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion.”  You can ALWAYS use a bottle of Lavender!  Some of our favorite uses for this versatile oil are in a bath with Epsom Salts for relaxation and for easing tense muscles, in the diffuser for sleep, to soothe skin and in our, “DIY Spring Essential Oil Roll-On.”*

Wintergreen

Wintergreen was another FREEBIE this month for the, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion.”  We have been wanting to try Wintergreen on its own for awhile now and this was a perfect opportunity.  Wintergreen is in PanAway, one of our favorite essential oil blends.  PanAway is in the Everyday Oil Collection in the Premium Starter Kit, because it is something you could literally use everyday.  It is the perfect oil for stressed muscles, joints and ligaments.*  When it is massaged on the location of need with a carrier oil, the soothing benefits of this oil are amazing.*  The Wintergreen combined with Peppermint essential oil are what make the cooling sensation.

Thieves Spray

A 3-pack of Thieves Spray was also a FREEBIE this month for, “April 2015 Young Living Promotion.”  These are great to take on-the-go, especially when traveling.  This spray contains pure grain alcohol, deionized water, Thieves essential oil blend, fractionated coconut oil and soy lecithin.  You can quickly clean just about everything with these little handy bottles!  They are perfect for shopping carts, toilet seats, door handles and more!

Peace & Calming and Valor

I purchased Peace & Calming and Valor this month with my accrued Essential Rewards points.  We were notified these oils were going to be out-of-stock temporarily, so I wanted to stock up!  These 2 oils are some of Young Living’s “top-selling” oils.  Due to weather conditions, the botanicals needed to make these essential oils were not up to Young Living’s high quality standard.  This is one great reason why I love Young Living.  They want to provide only the BEST, so we will wait patiently for a better harvest this year!  If you missed out on grabbing these before they went out-of-stock, there are other great alternatives!  An alternative for Peace & Calming is Gathering essential oil blend and alternatives for Valor are Magnify Your Purpose, Envision and Inspiration essential oil blends.

Copaiba

Copaiba I also added on to my Essential Rewards points order.  Copaiba is best known for supporting the body’s natural response to injury or irritation.*  It can also help support the digestive system.*

This sums up my April Essential Rewards order!  It was a BIG one this month!  If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about Young Living Essential Oils, send me a message by clicking on, contact me.

Thank you!

DIY Lavender Linen Spray

One reason I love Young Living Essential Oils so much:  They are so versatile!  Once you start getting comfortable with oils, you will want to use them for EVERYTHING!  It feels great to get rid of my store bought products and make my own.  It can be really fun too!  The best part though is with DIY products – you KNOW what is going in them!  I know with Young Living’s “Seed to Seal” process, I am using 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils.  I trust using them on myself and my whole family.

Check out my DIY Lavender Linen Spray – 

DIY Lavender spray

First, I add 15-20 drops of Lavender essential oil to a 4 oz. glass bottle purchased from Abundant Health.  For this particular spray, you do not need a glass bottle, because Lavender is not a citrus oil.  Citrus oils are known to breakdown plastics.  I prefer to use glass for most of my DIY items, but that is completely up to you.

This recipe can be tweaked to “make it your own.”  It is important to add a pinch of Epsom Salt, because it helps to disperse the oil into the water.  Since oil repels water, if you don’t add the Epsom Salt, it will just stay clumped together in one place.

After the Lavender essential oil and Epsom Salt, just fill the rest with distilled or purified water, shake well and spray!   It really is as simple as that!  I spray the mixture over my sheets and pillow right before bedtime.

Why Lavender?

Lavender essential oil will freshen your linens, promote relaxation and restful sleep!  Lavender is a very gentle oil and can be used on the whole family.

Since Lavender is so versatile, it is included in the Everyday Oils Collection of the Premium Starter Kit.  It is an important one to have on hand at all times!  Its uses are endless.  Click on Premium Starter Kit to learn more.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.  I would love to hear from you and have you join me on this oil journey!

Thank you,

Amy

DIY Spring Essential Oil Roll-On

Are you ready for Spring-

We are ready and preparing with our DIY Spring Essential Oil Roll-On.  I personally love this combination of oils, because of the support they can provide the sinuses and respiratory system.  This could benefit MANY people during the springtime!  But, even though this is a very common recipe, it’s important to remember what works for one may not work for another.  What is so great about essential oils is, you can tweak recipes to make them your “own,” or just find something completely different that works for you!  I definitely recommend investing in a helpful oil book if you are already using oils.  A book where you can look-up just about anything and it will give you detailed suggestions for oil use.  If you are not yet a Young Living member, I do give a FREE gift to all new enrollees ordering the Premium Starter Kit.  Please see my order oils page for more information.

Spring Essential Oil Roll-On Recipe – 

springtime sinus support

Steps 1-3

Start with a dark glass bottle either one recycled from another oil or one you have purchased.  Check out my blog post Reusing Essential Oil Bottles to see how I clean and reuse my bottles.  If you are looking to purchase new bottles, Abundant Health has a large variety to choose from.

Once you have your bottle, add 30 drops of Lavender, 30 drops of Peppermint and 30 drops of Lemon Young Living Essential Oils (all are including in the Premium Starter Kit).  You can just line up the oil hole with the bottle or use a glass dropper to be more precise.

lavender drops Peppermint Drops Lemon drops

Step 4 

After you’ve added all 3 essential oils, top off the rest of the bottle with a “carrier oil” or “seed oil” of your choice.  My family uses Young Living’s V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex.  This is made with Coconut, Sesame, Grape, Sweet Almond, Wheat, Sunflower and Olive oils.  It blends into the skin really well without leaving an oily residue and won’t clog pores.  It also won’t stain clothes or fabrics, which is a huge PLUS!  If you do not have V-6, you can use another seed oil such as, Coconut, Sesame, Jojoba, Almond, etc.

V-6 TOP OFF

Step 6

Lastly, after the essential oils and V-6 or other carrier oil is added, then put your roller fitment onto the bottle with the cap.  I prefer using Young Living’s AromaGlide Roller Fitments, because they are made of metal.  Many roller-balls are made of plastic, which is not safe to use with citrus oils, because they can actually erode the plastic.  Once the roller and cap is on, you can shake the bottle lightly or roll it between your hands to mix the oils up throughly.  After you are done, add a label!

ROLL-ON

Ready to use!

We use this roll-on on the back of our necks, wrists or on our Vita-Flex points on the bottom of our feet.  We love the convenience of this bottle too.  It can very easily fit in a purse, bag or even pocket!

Other Options for Spring Sinus and Respiratory Support

Essential Oils – Breathe Again, Copaiba, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Frankincense, Raven, Ravintsara, R.C., Roman Chamomile, Sacred Frankincense, Thieves and more!

  • Diffuse your choice of oils by following the directions on the bottle label
  • Put a few drops of oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and inhale as needed
  • Add several drops of oil to a cotton ball and place it near an air vent
  • Put 2-3 drops of an oil in a spoonful of honey and take orally *ALWAYS check your bottle label to make sure the oil is a dietary supplement and if so, follow the directions accordingly
  • Add a few drops to a glass of milk or juice and drink
  • Add a few drops to a vegetable capsule and add a carrier oil if needed to take orally

*For more information on oil usage and safety, check out my page – Oil Usage and Safety Tips

Contact me if you have any questions or if you are interested in learning more about Young Living Essential Oils.

Thank you!

6 Winter Diffuser Musts!

I feel like we have officially entered full-blown winter season, maybe because it looks like a blizzard outside here in the Midwest!  Well, here I will tell you what Young Living Essential Oils my family has been diffusing like crazy!  Here are what we believe to be “6 Winter Diffuser Musts!”

Immune Support

Thieves and ImmuPower are our musts for immune support.  We usually alternate them during the winter months or as needed.

Thieves is an essential oil blend made up of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary.  This blend is best known for its cleansing abilities and eliminating airborne bacteria.  It is highly effective in supporting a healthy immune system and good health.*

ImmuPower is an essential oil blend made up of Hyssop, Mountain Savory, Cistus, Camphor, Frankincense, Oregano, Clove, Cumin and Dorado azul.  This powerful essential oil creates a protective barrier and increases positive energy.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Pick either Thieves or ImmuPower 
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the essential oils to the diffuser
  3. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  4. For Thieves diffuse up to 10 minutes 3 times daily and for ImmuPower diffuse up to 30 minutes 3 times daily

Purify and Cleanse

Purification and Lemon are our musts to purify and cleanse the air.  We combine both of these essential oils into our diffuser.  Click on, “Homemade Air Freshener with Essential Oils,” to see another way we use this combination.

Purification is an essential oil blend made up of Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaleuca, Lavandin and Myrtle.  It is best known for its ability to cleanse impurities from surroundings while deodorizing and neutralizing the air.*

Lemon is a powerful single essential oil.  It is best known for its uplifting fresh aroma, its antioxidant and cleansing properties as well as its support for the nervous system.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Add 5 drops each of Purification and Lemon to the diffuser
  2. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  3. Diffuse up to 30 minutes 3 times daily

Respiratory Comfort

R.C. and Raven are our musts for respiratory comfort.  We alternate them during the winter months or as needed.

R.C. is an essential oil blend made up of Eucalyptus globulus, Myrtle, Marjoram, Pine, Eucalyptus radiata, Eucalyptus citriodora, Lavender, Cypress, Spruce and Peppermint.  It is best known for its respiratory support especially during the cold winter months.*

Raven is an essential oil blend made up of Ravensara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata.  It also is known for its comforting properties and support for the respiratory system.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Pick either R.C. or Raven
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the essential oils to the diffuser
  3. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  4. Diffuse either R.C. or Raven up to 30 minutes 3 times daily

Uplift and Refresh

Sometimes during those winter months, you need to uplift and refresh your mood and Joy and Lemon are our musts!  Click on, “My Morning Routine with Essential Oils,” to see another way in which I personally use Joy daily.

Joy is an essential oil blend made up of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman chamomile, Palmarosa and Rose.  It is uplifting and refreshing for moods and inspires happiness all around.  It is the perfect oil to diffuse for everyday stress or if you need a little more energy to get you through the day.*  It’s also known to enhance romance and togetherness.*

Lemon as seen above is known for its “uplifting and refreshing properties,” which makes it a perfect addition to this diffuser combination!

Diffuser Directions

  1. Add 5 drops each of Joy and Lemon to the diffuser
  2. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  3. Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily

Blues Buster

Sometimes being stuck indoors for days on end during the winter months can make a person feel “blue.”  We call this trio our, “Blues Buster.”  Orange, Lavender and Frankincense in the diffuser are our musts!

Orange is a multi-purpose single essential oil.  It is commonly known to support a healthy immune system, promote relaxation and positive emotions.*

Lavender is the most well-known single essential oil.  It is the, “swiss army knife,” of essential oils.  It is commonly used for relaxation and occasional sleeplessness.  It also can reduce everyday stress of the mind and body.*

Frankincense is one of the oldest single essential oils.  It is commonly used to increase spiritual awareness, calm and soothe the body and mind while providing support to the nervous system.*

Diffuser Directions

  1. Add 4 drops each of Orange, Lavender and Frankincense to the diffuser
  2. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  3. Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily

Relax and Sleep

Lavender and/or Peace & Calming are our musts to help us relax and sleep.  We usually alternate them in the diffuser during the winter months or as needed.

Lavender as seen above is commonly used for relaxation and occasional sleeplessness.

Peace & Calming is an essential oil blend made up of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Blue Tansy.  Just as the name states, it is commonly known to help bring peace and calm to the mind and body.  It is perfect to diffuse after a long day to help you wind down.

Diffuser Directions

  1. Pick either Lavender or Peace & Calming
  2. Add 6-8 drops of one of the essential oils to the diffuser
  3. Fill the rest of the diffuser with distilled or purified water
  4. Lavender or Peace & Calming can be diffused up to 1 hour 3 times daily

Check out what I ordered – 

Lavender

I feel like we need to start adding Lavender to every monthly order!  We use it DAILY for so many different things.  The main way we use it is in Epsom salt baths for relaxation and to ease everyday muscle aches.  It’s also a must-have for our on-the-go oil bag!

Peace & Calming

We added this one to our September order, because we were running low and we love it so much, we don’t want to run out!  We use it before bedtime massaged on the bottom of our kids feet and/or in our home diffuser.  We’ve definitely noticed a difference in how well they sleep at night!  Also, it is great for supporting the nervous system.  I use Peace & Calming diffused or massaged onto my wrists, neck, ears and Vita Flex points.

Tranquil Roll-On

This is a new one for my family and we are excited to try it out for occasional sleeplessness!

Tranquil comes in a 10 ml roll-on bottle making it convenient for use and portability.  It is a blend of Lavender, Cedarwood, Roman Chamomile and Coconut oils.  There is no need to dilute, just roll-on wrists, temples and back of the neck as needed.

Vetiver

This is another new one for my family that we have been patiently waiting to try.  It also promotes restful sleep and supports the nervous system.  It can be used topically or aromatically.

AromaGlide Roller Fitments

I was excited to FINALLY purchase these!  This makes using oils much easier and faster!  When you order these AromaGlide Roller Fitments from Young Living, there are 10 in the package with caps that fit 5 ml and 15 ml bottles.

September 2014 Young Living Promotion!

Yay!!!  It’s a new month and time for a new Young Living promotion!  These promotions offer FREE Young Living products for retail customers and wholesale members.  If you are a wholesale member, you get even more bang for your buck, because you get 24% off of EVERYTHING too!  Check out my order oils page for more information and to enroll as a wholesale member!

As you can see from the above graphic, if you meet the Personal Volume (PV) requirements in a single order, you receive the FREE products mentioned.  All of them are great for the upcoming fall and winter months!

Raven Essential Oil 

Raven is an oil blend of Ravensara, Lemon, Wintergreen, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Radiata.  It can help support healthy lung and sinus function and more!

Lavender, Peppermint and Thieves Samples

Young Living picked 3 favorites to include during this promotion.  I would consider ALL of them MUST-HAVE oils.  They each come in their own 10 individually wrapped 0.25 ml sample packets.  They conveniently fit in your purse, briefcase or backpack to carry for personal use or to share with others.

$20 Enrollment Voucher

This voucher is perfect for sharing Young Living.  You will be given a discount code to give to a new member you enroll to receive $20 off of their starter kit.  I actually enrolled in Young Living at the time, because a member was offering this voucher.  Everyone loves a little savings!

NingXia Nitro

This is a totally new one for me!  I am looking forward to trying it at some point.  I hear so many testimonials about how this alone has changed people’s lives!

NingXia Nitro is the ultimate “pick-me-up” energy drink that is 100% NATURAL.  It contains essential oils, Korean ginseng, green tea and more!
You can literally drink this directly from the tube, mix it with NingXia Red (another Young Living product) or just water.

Click on NingXia Nitro to learn more and watch a video on Young Living’s website.

If you have any questions about this month’s promotion, feel free to contact me at any time!  If you are interested in ordering oils or becoming a wholesale member, come visit my order oils page.
