Air Freshener

Disinfecting/Purifying
In a 100ml Amber Glass Spray Bottle: Add a thin layer of epsom salt (prevents oils from staying at top of mixture), 30ml witch hazel, 10 drops Thieves, 10 drops Lemon, 5 drops Lavender, and 5 drops Purification. Swirl, then add 60ml water. Lightly shake before using. (Can use any variation of oils for this.)

Essential Oil DIY Recipes for Personal Care! Simple, easy diy essential oils blends for enhanced eye cream, moisturizer, facial toner spray, hand salve, lotion, kids, kids', children foaming body wash, shampoo, spring health, roll on, essential oils roll on, toothpaste

Body Wash

Mix 3/4 cup castile soap, 10 teaspoons raw honey, and 2 teaspoons double-boiled coconut oil in a plastic bottle (I used the bottle the castile soap came in). Add approximately 60 drops of your favorite essential oils. I used 10 drops each of Lavender, Purification, Tea Tree, Frankincense, and Roman Chamomile, then added 5 drops of Copaiba. Swirl to mix before each use!

Eye Cream (Enhanced)

Emptied 15ml of current eye lifting serum into a glass jar then added 3 drops Lavender and 3 drops Frankincense (Combining Lavender and Frankincense generally smoothes and soothes skin, may help smooth/prevent wrinkles, and may help treat/prevent itchy, watery, red eyes.)

Facial Moisturizer (Enhanced)

Added to current 50ml tub of mattefying moisturizer: 7 drops Tea Tree, 5 drops Lavender, 3 drops Frankincense (Combining Lavender, Frankincense, and Tea Tree oils generally smoothes and soothes skin, may help smooth the appearance of wrinkles, and may help treat/prevent blemishes.)

Facial Scrub (Soothing, Moisturizing)

Mix approximately 45ml almond butter (100%, organic), 15ml coconut oil (100%, organic), 10 drops Tea Tree, 10 drops Lavender, 5 drops Frankincense, and store in a small glass jar with lid. Keep in a cool, dry area. May need to be stirred occasionally. To use, gently massage scrub onto clean face in a circular, upward motion, let sit for a couple of minutes, then gently wipe away using a warm, wet cloth. Use scrub 2-3 times weekly! (Combining Lavender, Frankincense, and Tea Tree oils generally smoothes and soothes skin, may help smooth the appearance of wrinkles, and may help treat/prevent blemishes.)

Facial Toner Spray

In a 100ml Amber Glass Spray Bottle: 90ml witch hazel, 20 drops Tea Tree, 10 drops each Lavender, Frankincense, Roman Chamomile, and Copaiba. Swirl to mix before spraying directly onto face/chest.

Hand Salve

Mix approximately 45ml coconut oil (100%, organic), 15ml almond oil (100%, organic), 10 drops Lavender, and 5 drops Frankincense, then store in small glass jar with lid. Keep in a cool, dry area. May need to be stirred occasionally. (Combining Lavender and Frankincense generally smoothes and soothes skin, and may help smooth the appearance of wrinkles.)

Kids' Foaming Shampoo/Body Wash

In a 250ml foaming dispenser, add 45ml castile soap, 10-20 drops each of Lavender and Roman Chamomile, swirl to mix, then add 200ml water. Swirl to mix again before pumping. Our 8yo uses one pump for shampoo, then puts 1-2 pumps on his loofah to be used as body wash! As with all other soaps, avoid your eyes.

Spring Health Roll-On

In one of your empty oil bottles (clean or not), or in a roll-on bottle like this one, add 5-10 drops each of Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint. Top off with a carrier oil (I like almond or sunflower oil). Swirl – don't shake! – and with your roll-on attachment, apply behind ears then massage in a downward motion following your jawline to help with nose and throat discomfort.

Toothpaste (Enhanced)

Whitening: 1 drop of Orange on toothbrush before adding current toothpaste

Note: I typically add 10 drops of oil per 30ml of liquid or carrier oil, but sometimes just "play it by nose"
