Favorite EO DIY recipes


This month I have had the chance to make a TON of different items using Essential Oils for gifts and for myself. When I first started using essential oils, I just did not understand how they worked and it was overwhelming. Thankfully I'm over a year in and I have some knowledge under my belt ;) So this post is all about  sharing some fun ways to use oils that I've learned & to really simplify how to use oils. *Disclaimer: the following images were all shot on my iPhone, and as a photographer it kills me that I am blogging these ;) But I figured we will all live!!!

First up:

Thieves Throat Spray!! 

Perfect for the ickyness that winter so often brings, and oh-so-easy to make!!

Here's what you need:
- One 1oz amber glass spray bottle. (You can get packs of 10-12 for a great price on Amazon)
-15 drops of Thieves Essential Oil
-Distilled Water

Add Thieves to the spray bottle & fill to top with water. Shake each time before use because oil sits on top of water ;) and spray!!!

Next up:

Peace & Calming Bath Salts!

You will need:
-Glass jar/container (these super cute ones are from Target for $1.00!!)
- 1/2 c epsom salt (this is an estimation! You just need enough to fill the jar!)
- 5-6 drops of Peace & Calming Oil

Fill jar/container half way with epsom salt. Add 2-3 drops of essential oil. Fill the rest of the jar up with epsom salt. Add 2-3 more drops of essential oil. 

And last but not least (and one of my favorites!!!): 

Sleepy Time Roller!

What you will need: 

-1 glass roller bottle (My new obsession are roller bottles from The Root & Petal
-Carrier Oil (My go to is normally grape seed oil or sweet almond oil. You can purchase carrier oils through Amazon. I'm a little obsessed with Amazon. Can you tell?!) 
-Peace & Calming, Valor, Cedarwood and Lavender Essential Oils
-Cute Washi tape (Optional of course ;) ) 

Fill your roller bottle 2/3 with carrier oil and then add in 5-7 drops of each of the oils. (You can top off with more carrier oil if needed) Put the roller ball on your bottle, and add your lid. Shake well. Decorate with your favorite Washi tape.

So there you have it. Three of my favorite (and SUPER DUPER easy) DIYs with Essential Oils
