If you have been following along in this series, you will know that the first place I go if I am wondering about which essential oil would be good to use for a specific issue is Heritage Essential Oils Health Care Topics page. The research from this site is amazing. You will also remember that Heritage Essential Oils are the only oils our family chooses to use. I talk about the quality of essential oils in the first post of this series.
Today I want to share a few EO recipes that we use around here.
We use Owie Spray the same way my mom would use Bactine when I was a child. Anytime there is a cut or scrape in our family, the children ask for the Owie Spray. It cleanses it and makes it feel better. At least, that’s what my children tell me.
30 drops tea tree EO
30 drops lavender EO
Fractionated coconut oil
1 oz. glass spray bottle
Add EO’s to the spray bottle. Fill the bottle up with Fractionated Coconut oil. Shake before spraying.
This recipe comes from Heritage Essential Oils. I love this hand sanitizer. I really like making it with the Citrus Quench blend. It smells so yummy!
2 oz. glass spray bottle
Pure aloe gel
6 ml EO’s (app. 20 drops per 1 ml) (Citrus Quench or Plague Defense are great choices)
1 drop Grapefruit Seed Extract
Put the EO in the bottle. Fill almost to the top with aloe gel. Shake well before using.
I saw the original recipe for this recipe over at Stacy Makes Cents, but I have modified the recipe, and it doesn’t really resemble the originally recipe anymore. Somehow, most of my recipes end up nothing like the original. This is my all time favorite mouth wash ever! So yum! (Can mouth wash be yum? I think this one is!)
2 C filtered or boiled water
2 tsp baking soda
12 drops peppermint EO
8 drops tea tree EO
10 drops lemon EO
2 small scoops pure Stevia power
Combine ingredients in a 16 oz. amber colored bottle. Shake well before each use.
If you remember, lemon makes me happy! I put a 50:50 mixture of Lemon and water in a small, amber colored, glass spray bottle. Shake well before spraying! Easy!
2 C distilled water
2 C rubbing alcohol
20-30 drops essential oils
I have a large, industrial strength spray bottle. It has ounce measurements on the side of the bottle, so it makes it really easy to mix up. My favorite combination is tea tree, peppermint, and lemon. Plague Defense is another great blend to use in cleaner. We use this cleaner in the bathroom, and I feel confidant that it will not hurt my children as they are cleaning.
What are some of your favorite recipes using EO’s? I would love to hear how you use them!
