Best Essential oils for Summer and the Silly Season
Summer’s almost here and on top of that it’s the silly season, and the kids are about to be off school for 8 weeks! So here’s my top tips for surviving the heat, the crowds, and your kids with your sanity intact! I recorded a Facebook live from my Facebook page for you, otherwise below the video I will outline my top tips.
Beat the bloating and “overfull” feeling after your Christmas feast with DigestZen Essential Oil. It’s comprise of Anise, Peppermint, Ginger, Caraway, Coriander, Tarragon and Fennel Essential oils and helps your body digest that abundance of alcohol and food. You can place one drop in a glass of water if you enjoy the licorice and aniseed flavours, diffuse in your diffuser or rub onto your abdomen. For children and those with sensitive skin always dilute in a tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil.
Balance Essential oil is fantastic to keep you and the kids and the entire family calm during Christmas shopping!
Get your skin beach ready!
Grapefruit and Cypress Essential oils are your best friend. Grapefruit helps smash out those lumps and dimples in your legs, and Cypress works wonders with those veins. My favourite thing to do is to make up my own body scrub with raw sugar, 10 drops of essential oil and enough coconut oil to cover and mix through. I keep it in a sealed container in the bathroom and scrub my legs before shaving- it makes my legs all nice and lubricated, so I don’t have to use soap on my legs. If you prefer, doTERRA has a gorgeous body scrub in the Day Spa collection which is made with Bergamot essential oil.
Get prepared for the great outdoors!
Lavender is your best friend for bites, stings, burns and sunburn and blemishes. Apply directly to the source of irritation. Terramour is our special blend of essential oils which you can use instead of those nasty chemical laden DDT bug sprays. It comes in a 15ml bottle or in a spray bottle for easy application. This is a blend of fractionated coconut oil, Ylang Ylang, Tiamnu seed oil, Nootka Oil, Catnip Oil, Litsea Oil, Arborvitae Oil, Lemon Eucalyptus oil, and Vanilla Bean extract.
