I started using essential oils a few years ago, and ever since, I have been obsessing over new ways to use them. My recent favorite find is using lava rock stone bangles for a diffuser! I started making jewelry almost a year and a half ago, and I am kicking myself in the butt that I didn’t put this combo together sooner! Over the course of the day, I diffuse, wear and use over 12 different oils! I like to layer oils, make my own blends and apply as I feel they are needed. I deal with a lot of stress and anxiety, so I tend to use oil combos for those issues. In the mornings I like to use something to perk me up because I am not a avid coffee drinker (such a strange thing to say huh?) and also to help me focus on work. Now that Sweet Tea Jewels has added lava rock bangles to our website, I have found myself wearing mine pretty much every day because I LOVE the way it diffuses. I just add one or two drops of my oil to the lava rock and rub it in and go on about my day!
I’m sharing a few of my favorite oils to diffuse and what I use the oils for below:
*JOY – this is one of my favorite oils! This blend is an all natural refreshing and uplifting mood enhancer made especially for women. Joy helps with mood swings, cramps, libido, blood pressure, PMS, circulation, post partum depression, anxiety and grief to name a few! I diffuse this to promote balance, harmony and well being. I find myself using this one A LOT and Derrek said he can tell the difference when I am PMSing and I apply verses when I just let the PMS overtake my body haha!
*LEMON + ENRGEE – Lemon oil came in my premium starter kit so I use it quite often, I purchased ENRGEE at the beginning of last year to help me get up and moving. ENRGEE helps with focus, mental alertness, brain fog, and uplifting your mind. I really do not like the way it smells alone so I like to layer it with Lemon (sometimes peppermint) for an extra burst of energy! These two oils combined help lift your energy and your spirit levels within minutes of applying!
*STRESS AWAY – This blend became one of my favorites very quickly and now I use it regularly as my perfume. The blend is made up of cedarwood, lime, lavender, vanilla, ocotea and copaiba. This combo of oils helps reduce stress, restores equilibrium, induces relaxation, reduces anxiety, helps you stay focused, reduces tension and helps with headaches! It really smells like heaven in a bottle and my kids even say it smells delicious!
*TANGERINE – A few nights ago, I was a part of a bangles and essential oils party and my upline Betsy, had her Zyto Scanner there. It scans your biomarkers and tells you what oils your body is craving. I’ve been dying to have my scan done so I beelined over there and sat down! I had 13 biomarkers tell me that I needed tangerine. It is a calming oil that helps with nervous irritability. That’s me right now in a nutshell. NERVOUS AND IRRITABLE. Since the party, I’ve been applying tangerine and I can see a dramatic difference in my mood and mind. This oil helps uplift the spirit and brings about a sense of security. It contains esters and eldehydes with are sedating and calming the nervous system. This has become a quick favorite and I’ve already ordered another bottle so I can always have one on hand!
If you want some more information on Young Living essential oils, the ones I cannot live without, or more information on the Premium Starter Kit see my post here, it breaks down the kit and why I love Young Living!
Please, please, be very cautious of your essential oils and their source. There are many essential oil companies out there, and they don’t all play nice in the sandbox. Oils that are adulterated are NOT safe to use internally, or even topically – because don’t forget, your skin is your largest organ. I recommend ONLY Young Living essential oils, they are the only ones I trust to use for myself and my family. I choose to use Young Living oils for the same reason I drive an hour to get organic groceries. Young Living is the only essential oil company that owns their own farms. They are also the only EO company that plants their seeds for the plants. Their seed -to-seal process hooked me. Young Living is involved directly with every step of the process of producing an oil. They grow and harvest their own plants, distill and tests the oils for quality then package and mail the oils themselves with no outsourcing. They are the only EO company that follows that process. I trust this company above others because their oils are therapeutic grade and pure.
