Are you new to essential oils? If so, here are a few great recipes/uses that you might find helpful. Note, however, that not all essential oils are the same. Young Living essential oils are therapeutic/medicinal grade, verses many oils on the market, which are cosmetic/fragrant grade. A good rule of thumb is…can your lavender, lemon, frankincense or peppermint essential oil brand be taken internally? If not, then how can it be what the label claims! If you want to use this list, then please only use Young Living oils! Blessings and happy oiling!

Natural Laundry Detergent:
Use 1 TBSP Thieves Household Cleaner in place of all laundry detergents. It will not make suds and cleans laundry really well. 

For general bug bites and boo-boo’s: 
Lavender essential oil and Purification bring relief. 

Bee stings: 
Try 1 drop of either Thieves or Purification essential oils on the location of the sting for relief.

Trouble sleeping? 
Place hanky sprinkled with a couple drops of Chamomile and Lavender oil under our pillow. 

To ease a headache: 
Massage 1 drop of Peppermint, Lavender or Pan Away on temples (avoiding eye area) and back of the neck for relief. 

Dipping Oil (for bread):
In a small dipping bowl put 1 oz. of olive oil and one drop of either Mountain Savory, Oregano, Thyme, Marjoram, or Basil. Set dipping bowl on table so everyone can dip as desired.

Calm a sore throat:
Rub a drop of Purification oil on the outside of a sore throat when it is first beginning. Or, gargle with Thieves essential oil a few times a day, then swallow! 

Aching muscle or joints:
Apply a few drops of Pan Away blend to the affected area and layer with Peppermint for a natural analgesic effect. 

Eliminate food odors in the fridge:
Add 1-2 drops Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Thieves, or Purification essential oil to 1 cup of water. Using a sponge wipe surface of icebox, freezer, oven, trash cans. 

Air Freshener spray
Add 20-30 drops of Peppermint, Lemon, Thieves, or Purification to a 32 oz. spray bottle of water – spritz into the air for a nontoxic freshener that kills odors rather than mask them. 

Doggy odor? 
Try YL Lavender Shampoo and several drops of Palo Santo essential oil when you give your dog a bath. Massage in mixture for 20 minutes, rinse… your dog will smell amazingly GREAT! 

Deodorant powder
Mix in a small jar – mix 2 oz. Cornstarch, 1 oz. Baking soda, and a few drops of either Geranium, Melrose, Thieves, Joy, or Lavender essential oil. 

Stay awake and alert:
Put a couple drops each of Peppermint and Rosemary on cotton ball near the car heating/cooling vents for a refreshing scent.
