DIY Holiday Potpourri

 

I’m back with a new video and wanted to share with you a quick DIY project I did over the holidays.

I used cinnamon sticks, star anise, whole cloves, and dried orange slices.

To dry the orange slices:

  1. Cut orange slices about 1/8″ thick
  2. Place slices directly on a wire rack in a 200 degree oven
  3. Leave in oven for about 2 hours, flipping every 30 minutes.  Make sure slices are completely dry before removing.  I ended up leaving mine in about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Easy, beautiful, and smells amazing with zero synthetic fragrance or chemicals.

November Unboxing

 

I filmed a quick video unboxing everything I ordered for FREE with my Essential Rewards points from Young Living Essential Oils.

By participating in Young Living’s monthly subscription box, I earn rewards points that I can use for free products.  I tend to hoard my Essential Rewards points but I decided it was finally time to cash some of those babies in!

Here’s what I ordered:

The Oils of Ancient Scripture Collection. I’ll be sharing more about this set soon.

Some everyday oils as a gift for a friend to introduce her to therapeutic grade oils – lavender, orange, eucalyptus, and peppermint.

And then some Lime for us!


I’m thrilled I was able to get all of this for free!

July Unboxing

 

So excited to dive into my monthly wellness box from Young Living!  I decided to order some of the new products that were released at Convention.

I ordered the Desert Mist Diffuser, which is absolutely beautiful.  I love that it has so many different settings and changes colors.

It also came with two free oils – 5ml of Tangerine and Peppermint.

And then I just HAD to try some of the new Savvy Minerals makeup.

All of the new makeup products were in seriously high demand, but I managed to get one of the eyeshadows (Unscripted).

I also ordered Wanderlust, but alas, it sold out before my order processed. Next time for sure!

So Sleepy Rollerball

 

Rollerballs are a great way to use essential oils topically and create your own blends.  Typically, rollerballs are made with with one or more essential oils and then diluted with a carrier oil.  One of the rollers I use frequently is what I call my “So Sleepy” roller using Lavender and Cedarwood combined with a carrier oil.  I thought it would be helpful to do a quick tutorial video on how to make a roller.  It is super easy to do!

I use my sleepy roller every night before bed by rolling the blend on my wrists.  It is relaxing a supports a night of restful sleep.

And once you’ve made one roller, you’ll be looking for ways to make more.

M-Grain

M-Grain

Every month I look forward to choosing what comes in my Essential Rewards order.  Often it’s restocking my go-to oils (like Panaway and Peppermint), but I love trying out new oils.  This month I decided that I’d give M-Grain a try.

I have lived with migraines since I turned eighteen.  And I’ve been prescribed a number of medications, none of which really worked.  In fact, as is often the case with medications these days, the side effects made me feel worse than if I’d just left well enough alone.  Over the years, I’ve managed to mostly get my migraines under control through changes in diet and lifestyle.  But, once a month and when the barometric pressure drops, I’m almost guaranteed a migraine.

Over the months of using oils, I found that both peppermint and Panaway have been helpful due to their anti-inflammatory properties.  And peppermint is always my go to when my stomach gets upset.  When I read that M-Grain was really good with relieving tension when massaged into the back of the neck and temples, I decided it was worth a try too.

M-Grain

M-Grain is a blend of Basil, Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, and Helichrysum.

I have used it both topically, by massaging onto the back of my neck and along my temples to relieve tension, and aromatically by dropping it into my palms and cupping over my nose and mouth to inhale.  By using these oils in addition with my usual methods of ice packs and a dark room, their cooling and soothing properties help to give me some peace.

Highest Potential

Highest Potential

I received an email today and in it was this sentence – “Your expansion is limitless.”  I have been struggling with feeling less than and allowing fear to immobilize me.  The beauty of this life we have, is that in every moment we are give the chance to choose again, to choose differently, to allow ourselves grace, and to acknowledge that we are vast and limitless beings.

Tonight I’m putting a few drops of this oil over my heart and saying thanks for that one little sentence.

Highest Potential is a blend of Australian Blue, Gathering, Jasmine, and Ylang Ylang.  Gathering is a blend containing the biblical oils of frankincense, galbanum, cedarwood, and sandalwood.
