When someone starts using essential oils, it’s so exciting and overwhelming at the same time. There are so many possibilities! Deciding what to do with them is sometimes a touch choice, but the main thing is to USE THEM. OPEN the BOTTLE. Well, this is an easy thing to make with one of the oils that comes in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit! When I first got mine, I took a few drops of Lavender Oil in my hands, rubbed both hands together, then spread the oil on my pillowcase to help me sleep. The Lavender was very relaxing and did the job! If you don’t want to mess with having the oils on your hands, though, this is a great option. I found the recipe here at Decor Chick. It’s pretty easy!
- Add 6 oz distilled water to a glass bottle (I got mine here but Amazon also has some)
- Add 20 drops of Young Living Lavender essential oil (or another YL oil of your choice)
- Mix together and shake before each use
*Emily cautions against using darker oils as they may stain your linens…lighter colored oils are best!
To make a quick and easy label, I just took some washi tape, wrapped a piece the diameter of the bottle around, then a second piece just below it. Then I used my label maker to make a label, stuck it on and done! (I realized after the fact that a white label would have shown up better but I had clear in the machine at the time.)
Anyway, there you have it! A good-smelling, relaxing night of sleep is coming your way!
*Please note that I am talking specifically about Young Living essential oils. Not all oils are created equally! Because Young Living oils are genuinely pure, they can be used aromatically, topically and ingested (read the bottle for each specific oil’s uses and dilution information).
