A little thing about me: I 💙 essential oils. I also love using my background in research to help people learn more about essential oils and all the wonderful ways they can be used. I share DIY recipes for natural cleaners that really work, non-toxic beauty solutions, and holistic wellness. My essential oil recipes, info, and tips have been viewed more than 20 million times. I've been featured on MindBodyGreen, Health & Natural Living, All Natural Ideas, This Natural Home, Natural Living Ideas, and Passion for Savings.
Regarding sore joints, my husband is a runner, and I have used various concoctions of lavender, lemon, and peppermint for his feet, especially when he was trail running long distances. We would put the oils in an espsom salt foot bath and he would find relief. As a rub, I like adding clove and helichrysum to a mix of lavender and/or peppermint. (Sorry I don’t have any specific recipes off-hand but found or altered many of mine from “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” book by Valerie Ann Worwood.) I hope this information helps and doesn’t further confuse.
If your child hasn’t yet – or is just starting to – get into essential oils, the best way to help them on their journey is to get them their own diffuser for their room! Given that they’re old enough to not pull on the cords or spill the thing – that way, they can decide on their own which oils they’d like to diffuse; they can refill it, clean it, and take care of it all on their own. This one makes for an interesting gift for sure, and also helps you along the way of teaching independence to your child.
plus you can color and scent them any way you want– Color a batch sea blue and use a lavender, lime, and spearmint essential oils for a calming and uplifting aroma that smells like a sea breeze. Or color them yellow with a mix of rosemary and lemon essential oils for an energizing scent that makes you looks forward to your morning shower. Or color them pink and use grapefruit, juniper berry, cypress, and rosemary essential oils to help improve cellulite.

Aren’t these labels these so cute!! They’d be great for make & takes, and of course, they’d make great Christmas gifts for oily friends and family! There are labels for spray bottles, 5ml bottles, 10ml roller bottles, and 15ml bottles. You can get labels for just one kind of bottle, or get several sets of labels so that all your bottles coordinate. Love these!! click here to check out these essential oil bottle labels
I received my necklace last week and decided to wear it a few times before posting. The diffuser pads hold oil very well and the scent lasts, the first pad I used still is holding scent days later. I have had no issues with the metal so it truly is hypoallegenic as it states since I am extremely sensitive and most that claim still cause me problems. My peeve is that the clasp on the necklace itself is difficult to use, the loop is quite small making it difficult to attach. Otherwise I love it.
