Lavender oil: My favorite Essential oil from the PSK

Hi guys! Some of you may know that I love essential oils. I was hesitant at first because seriously how can a smell cure what medicine didn’t even help? Last summer I jumped on to the young living bandwagon and I haven’t looked back. Now yes young living is one of those paramid things where you try and get more people below you to make more. But you don’t have to do it as a business. You can just enroll and reap ths benifits of doscounted oils. I want to tell you about my favorite oil. Lavender oil.

I’ve been a long time fan of lavender essential oil. I first tried it about 5 years ago, my anxieties were so bad it was painful I was signed up to volunteer at a summer camp with church I didn’t want to go back on the medication* so I thought I would try essential oils. Lavender oil is soothing, and can lull you to sleep, calm anxious nerves and it has a ton of bacteria killing abilities.

I’m not going to lie I didn’t love the smell of it, and it took a bit to get used to it. Once I did, I loved it. It smells comforting and soothing.

I started using it by rubbing 2-3 drops in my hands then running them through my hair. I’d also taken a bit of felt and glued it to the back of plastic BFF necklace my niece gave me. I also put it in my diffuser and let them comforting smell soothe me to sleep.

Where do I get it?

I purchase my oils through young living. They don’t reccomed using oiles from like the grocery store since the FDA doesn’t check them so there’s no way to know know what you’re getting is pure and safe. Young living has a seed to seal promise. Where they gurantee that it’s pure and safe.

Whipped Body Oil |DIY

Hi there lovelies.  I’ve noticed a few things about independent sales. There alway seems to be a different brand that’s like trending.  First it was Mary Kay. I actually babysat for a Mary Kay consultant aside from writing me a check she almost always had some sort of makeup goodies to go with it. Then purses, nail stickers, 31 bags, Tupperware, perfectly posh, younique, Lula roe… you get it right? Now Young Living essential oils, seem to be what’s everyone is after.

I don’t usually jump on the independent sales bandwagon as I am not social or aggressive enough to even try to get sales  I sold Avon for a bit, I was my own best customer.  However, I did join in on the essential oils mostly because signing up to sell was the best value.  I went in wanting Grapefruit, Cedar Wood, and Purification, instead I bought the kit that came with none of what I wanted.

After a week of stalking my package for a week it finally came in. One of the first things I wanted to do is try to recreate a Lavender/Vanilla body butter. I really wanted to share what I was making with you.

You will need

1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of Shea Butter
1/4 tsp of Vanilla
4 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil

I started by putting water on to boil, once it was boiling I turned it down to low.  Then in a glass dish I melted the Shea butter, and coconut oil. I took it off the heat and added in my vanilla, and lavender. Now it is time to move it to my mixing bowl and  let it cool in the freezer checking it after 10 minutes.  You don’t want it fully solid, but you also don’t want is liquid.

Once it is a bit more solid I put it into my mixer, and with the whisk attachment I whipped the mixture.  All that’s left is moving it to another container for storage.

Ok so what I got was a bit different then what I was making, I probably should have done more of a 2:1 ratio instead of equal parts. Because while I was going for a more of a lotion, what I got was more of an oil.  Not that it isn’t great, it’s just a bit melty.

I love the combination of lavender and vanilla it’s so cozy and relaxing.  This oil could help you sleep, just apply some to the bottom of your feet before going to bed .

I love Lavender oil.  It has been beyond helpful with my anxiety.  If you’re interested in Young Living and would like to know more head over to my Contact me page, and I will be happy to sign you up or give you more information.
