It's August and an Essential Oils Experience

My mom and I went to an essential oils class at a local bed and breakfast. This was our first experience making them, and using them. I can't tell you how much we learned! The lady that was giving the class was a Young Living brand rep, and she taught us a lot!

We had the option of making a  two rollerballs, or a hand sanitizing spray, or one of each. My mom and I both made roller balls. I made a Focus blend and an Immune Boost blend. My mom made Sleepy Time and Open Airways. Did you know that it takes about 21 seconds to have the oils enter your system and begin working? That's amazing! I will give you a run down of the oils that made up each blend. I can't tell you how many drops are in each because we had helpers make the rollerballs.

*All blended oils are mixed with Fractionated Coconut Oil

Immune Boost:

Cinnamon, Clove, Lemon, Tea Tree, Oregano, Rosemary

Sleepy Time: 

Cedarwood, Frankincense, Bergamot,

Open Airways:

Cardamom, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Lemon, Peppermint

Focus Blend:

Orange, Peppermint

One day I was feeling especially run down, and I felt like I had a cold coming on. So that night I put the Immune Boost on my throat, behind my ears, and on the soles of my feet, and I can honestly say that I felt considerably better the next morning.

This class has definitely piqued my interest, and I think my mom and I are going to attend another one where we make inhalers!

What do you know about essential oils? How have they helped you? Leave me a comment and let me know!
