Must Have DIY Essential Oil Supplies

Must Have DIY Essential Oil Supplies

must have diy essential oil supplies

Essential oils are awesome! They have many uses, potentially thousands. You can use essential oils to make skin care creations, household products, and to simply smell divine. Using essential oils can be a fun and creative way to replace products that are laden with chemicals and preservatives. However, it is important to have the right tools for the job. This is why you must have DIY essential oil supplies. Here is what you need to have at home –

Carrier Oils

Carrier oils like Sweet Almond Oil or Coconut Oil are many times needed for DIY essential oil recipes. Many essential oils must have dilution, because they are so powerful. Using some undiluted oils can result in burns, irritation, and more. Make sure you oil up responsibly!

Containers for Blends

There are many ways to store your oil blends and anti-aging treatments. Two of the best ways are with Amber Glass Dropper Bottles and  Roller Ball Bottles. Glass dropper bottles are perfect for storing oil blends at home. Roller ball bottles are portable and great for DIY perfume. Serums can be stored in both types of containers. Make sure to keep them away from heat and direct sunlight.

Bottles

Pump lotion bottles and spray bottles are definitely some of the must have DIY essential oil supplies. You can make lotions and soaps to use in pump lotion bottles. Use the spray bottles to store DIY cleaning solutions and dusting spray.

Diffuser Jewelry

This is more of an accessory than a supply, but you want to have these nonetheless. Diffuser jewelry will allow your essential oil blends to stay with you all day long. They are long-lasting, and the essential oils within them can be changed daily. It’s also a super cute way to keep oils nearby! Try a diffuser bracelet, or even a necklace.

There are so many ways to use essential oils in DIY projects. Make sure you have the right supplies!

Put your rose petals into the mixture, and mix one more time. The rose pieces will not only add fragrance, they add an extra exfoliation factor. Put the Rose Sugar Scrub into a cute sealed container, like a mason jar. Add a Happy Mother’s Day label, and you have a fantastic DIY Mother’s Day Gift!

How to Use a Perfume Atomizer

How to Use a Perfume Atomizer

how to use a perfume atomizer

Empty, refillable spray perfume atomizers are perfect to make perfume for yourself, or as a gift to family and friends. Using essential oils, you can create a custom scent. Our two pack which is available here includes one gold atomizer, one silver atomizer, and a small funnel. The funnel helps to ensure the mess stays to a minimum, and you don’t waste any essential oils. How to use a perfume atomizer? It’s a lot easier than you may think!

To use your atomizer, simply put three to six drops of your favorite essential oils inside using the metal funnel. Next, you fill it the rest of the way using either a carrier oil like sweet almond oil, or distilled water. When you use sweet almond oil in your perfume, it adds moisturizing benefits for your skin. The more benefits, the better!

When you use a carrier oil, make sure to hold the atomizer closer to where you want the spray to end up. Oil is heavier than water, so it will need to be at a close distance. No matter what you fill the rest up with, you will want to shake the container before each use. This ensures that it is mixed well.

Using essential oils is much more beneficial than using store bought perfume and fragrances. Essential oils have beneficial properties, and nourish the skin.

Here are a few of our favorite essential oils to use in a perfume atomizer:

  • Lavender – This awesome oil helps with anxiety, mood, and insomnia. If you have trouble falling asleep, this is the essential oil for you! It also works as a bug repellant, and has antibacterial properties for minor cuts and burns.
  • RoseRose essential oil not only smells amazing, it has amazing benefits. Smelling this oil and applying it to areas like your abdomen can help with cramps, digestion, and more. It’s also antiseptic as well as an astringent.
  • Jasmine – This floral oil smells divine! It can help with snoring, and can even improve lactation. Much like lavender, it also helps with daily stress and anxiety.

It’s easy to use a perfume atomizer, and fun to create unique scents. Use one of your favorite essential oils, or create a custom mixture of 2-3 oils. Going all-natural with your beauty, skin care, and fragrance products is a must. Getting away from chemicals will improve your life. You will love it!

Anti Aging Face Oil

Anti Aging Face Oil

anti aging face oil

We all age eventually, some sooner than others. Are you aging prematurely? If you use anti-aging creams from the department store, they normally work for a short amount of time. You have to use these expensive $100+ products forever, or the results will not last. This comes thanks to chemicals, preservatives, and other yucky ingredients that shouldn’t go on skin. Don’t forget, these ingredients are absorbed into your skin and can actually cause premature aging by using them.

We have a solution! All natural skin care ingredients have beneficial properties to prevent and discourage premature aging and fine lines. They can even reduce dark spots, age spots, all while improving firmness and softness. We made a serum with some of these fabulous ingredients, and you can too. You can have this anti aging face oil for a fraction of the cost of chemical filled alternatives at the store. Even better, these ingredients can cause long-lasting improvement over time. Skin may even out or even appear brighter within the first few applications. We recommend using this face oil after you cleanse your face in the evening. Avoid areas which may cause the serum to get in your eyes, that’s no fun and can cause irritation.

Ingredients

How to Make it

Using a roller bottle or a glass bottle with a dropper, fill the container 1/3 of the way with Sweet Almond Oil. Next, fill another 1/3 of the container with Rosehip Seed Oil. If you’re using a 10ml roll-on bottle, add in 3 drops of Frankincense and Lavender. If you’re using a 4oz glass bottle, instead add in 10 drops each of the essential oils.

To use this anti aging face oil, put about a dime size amount in your hands. Apply to a clean face in an upward motion, avoiding areas that may irritate eyes. You can use this serum over night to wake up with a refreshed and rejuvenated face!

Coconut Oil Massage Lotion

Coconut Oil Massage Lotion

coconut oil massage lotion

Massage lotion should be three things. Oily, moisturizing, and soothing. It must be oily to prevent too much friction between skin when someone gives a massage. It should moisturize skin without clogging pores, and it should soothe tense and aching skin.

A coconut oil massage lotion is the perfect solution! Coconut oil melts as it becomes warmer. The temperature of your skin is the perfect amount of warmth to get your coconut oil into a liquid state which will glide across those sore muscles. This massage lotion contains essential oils which are said to assist with problems like pain, inflammation, and muscle tension.

In order to use this lotion, take a small amount into your hands, and massage you or your partner’s back, neck, shoulders, legs, arms, hands, or other sore areas. There are some fantastic guides online about massage techniques to use on yourself and others. If you’re a professional masseuse, good news! This massage lotion is perfect for you too.

Ingredients

How to Make it

In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Using a hand mixer or a KitchenAid, whip the ingredients together well. Place the completed coconut oil massage lotion in a sealed container, such as a mini mason jar. For an extra cooling sensation during massage, you can store the massage lotion in the fridge until about an hour before use. The cooling sensation can help ease your muscles and create a tingling sensation in combination with the peppermint oil.

Nothing beats the gift of a massage. Your partner will appreciate it, and may even give you one in return! Make sure you wash your hands well after giving a massage using essential oils. You don’t want to accidentally touch your eyes after using natural oils or lotions.

Gentle yet firm circular motions help loosen up the muscles in your shoulders and at the base of your neck. Upwards motions using the sides of your hands can help along the sides of your spine. What are your favorite massage techniques? Share them with us in the comments section!

Easy Beard Oil Recipe

Easy Beard Oil Recipe

easy beard oil recipe

Beards are awesome! If you or someone you know has a beard, you are aware that they can get – well – messy. Hairs tend to go in the direction they want to. In addition, beards can be very coarse. Getting scraped by a kiss on the cheek isn’t very pleasant! It can even cause a rash or irritation to the person either with the beard, or on the receiving end of a snuggle.

Beards can also harbor bacteria – so make sure you wash them often, and use products which are all natural and have anti-bacterial properties. We have an easy beard oil recipe that does just that – it provides a wonderful smell, a softer feel, and even prevents pesky bacteria from building up! Use this beard oil in between washes, and you will LOVE you or your honey’s beard.

Ingredients & Supplies

  • An Amber Glass Bottle with a dropper will work best to store the oil. This way it will last as long as possible, and is also easy to use.
  • Sweet Almond Oil is moisturizing and nourishing both to the hair and face.
  • Jojoba Oil is known to help with hair growth, and tame the mightiest of beards.
  • Cedarwood Oil, Lavender Oil, and Eucalyptus Oil all have beneficial properties for that beard of yours. Use 3-5 drops of each! These oils will condition the beard as well as shoo away bacteria.

How to Make it

In your amber glass bottle, fill it 1/2 of the way with your Sweet Almond Oil. In the space that is left, fill that up half way with Jojoba Oil. Add in your essential oils, and close that bottle up. Shake well before each use. Add about one full dropper of beard oil by putting it in your hands first. Then, rub your hands together gently. Now, pat your beard and then twist your fingers from the roots to the tips.  Voila! A softer, more maintained beard that smells wonderful is now achieved.
