Tips And Tricks For Essential Oils
By Terri Bonin
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “there’s an oil for that!” and most of the time that’s true. If you have a broken leg though, please go to the hospital. Hah! For just about everything else, there probably is an oil for what you’re needing. From cleaning to relaxing to digestive support for food there really is something for everyone.
Take a look at my shortcuts I’ve learned along the way…
Burned dinner again? You can easily purify the air by diffusing Young Living’s new Kunzea blend or Purification. Bye bye stinky kitchen!
Soak in a relaxing hot bath with a few drops of lavender added in and unwind after a tough day.
Did you know you can steam clean your nasty microwave with 2 cups of water and 4 drops of lemon essential oil? Just combine them in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 3 minutes. You can then easily wipe clean your microwave and it’ll smell heavenly too!
Forgot your laundry in the washing machine again? (No judgment here friend) Add two drops of lemon oil to your Thieves laundry soap and run it through again. That musty smell will be long gone.
Here’s a great tip! Put several drops of your favorite essential oil on a cotton ball and put it inside your vacuum canister right before you vacuum. As you clean, the air moving inside the vacuum will fill the room with the wonderful scent you chose.
You can even make your own wood cleaner! Just mix a capful of Thieves household cleaner with a cup of olive oil in a spray bottle. Spray onto a microfiber cloth and polish your wood furniture! (Be sure to do a spot test first).
You can create a fragrant home by adding 8-10 drops of your favorite refreshing scent to your furnace filter every time you change it. It will waft through your home and smell delightful.
It’s really so easy to use essential oils for everyday things like cleaning, purifying the air, and skin care routines. Essential oils don’t have to be a big scary thing you’re uncertain of how to use. It is so easy to incorporate them into your daily life! To order anything I talked about just click here!
