Lots of Qs in my inbox about using oils, so here are some of my favorite tips for getting your crunch on. As you’ll read, I use Doterra, but these tips work for the oils closest to your heart. If you’re looking for more info, check out what I’ve written about oils, browse my easy getting started guide, or check out one of my favorite sites for looking up info.
Diffuser Necklace: A diffuser necklace is an easy way to keep your favorite oils close all day. I use one from that link I loved you with. Just a couple of drops of Balance and Serenity inside, and I have them calming me throughout the day.
Makeup Removal: Use fractionated coconut oil (FCO) for makeup removal. If you are out of Kirkland makeup remover cloths (my true fave) or just looking for a more chemical-free option, use FCO on a cotton ball to take off your makeup. Seriously works like a freaking charm.
Diffuse TriEase: During allergy season, I put equal drops of peppermint, lavender and lemon in my diffuser to take the edge off itchy eyes and sneezing. You can also make a roller bottle of this to travel with. Just apply it to your hands, rub together and inhale.
Roller Bottles: I make up roller bottles topped off with FCO for a few reasons. First, it makes putting them on the kids easier. I don’t have to dilute with FCO before putting oils on them; they are already ready to go. I also like to put smellier oils in bottles; I don’t like those on my hands all day, so I roll them on. Finally, I can travel with oils more easily when I mix some in a roller bottle. I always carry a 1:1 drop ratio + FCO bottle of Balance and Serenity in my purse for panic attacks.
