I use my oils daily, for sure. Some days more than others, some days less. Here’s what I did yesterday (meant to post this yesterday…. oops).
8:30 – I took a shower and washed my hair with my homemade shampoo. I just do an equal mix of coconut milk, castille soap, a splash of jojoba oil. Every time I wash my hair, I just put a drop or two of essential oils in a little bowl with a small amount of my shampoo. Today I used a drop of Rosemary and a drop of Lavender. They are both really good supports for the scalp and hair and I often use them. Sometimes I choose oils that will support my mood, rather than my scalp. Sometimes I choose ones that just smell good. I also use the shampoo as my body wash.
8:45 – My after-shower routine is pretty set. I always put diluted Thieves on my feet for immune support. Then I put a drop of Frankincense on the roof of my mouth to feel grounded and support basically all of my body’s systems (more about Frank here). Then I put on my face lotion with a drop of something added – usually Patchouli or more Frankincense. I also put some Progessence Plus Serum on my neck or forearms for amazing hormonal support.
9:30 – I started diffusing 3 drops of Grapefruit with 5 drops of Idaho Blue Spruce. Such a good combo. Megan got me into citrus/tree blends because they’re awesome.
11:00 – I added a drop of Lime Vitality (FDA approved for ingesting) to my water as I was making lunch for the girls.
11:30 – I used my roller bottle of Stress Away diluted with sweet almond oil.
1:45 – I switched it up in my diffuser and went with Christmas Spirit because it’s too hot and I’m ready for cozy smells and chilly air.
4:45 – Alma needed a little emotional support, so she put her Gentle Baby roller bottle on her belly.
8:35 – After a fun, sugary birthday party for Kylie, the girls totally needed help getting settled down for sleep, so I put some Palo Santo in their diffuser.
9:30 – I threw some Lavender in my diffuser, read for a bit and fell right asleep.
I use a lot of other Young Living products during the day (deodorant, laundry soap, cleaner, etc) but I only wrote down the actual oils I used. How do you use your oils? I’d love to get some more worked into my routine and am always looking for ideas!
