Essential Oils and ALL THINGS FALL

At my last make-and-take class, we played with a lot of Young Living's Fall scented Essential Oils.  Some of my favorites are: Clove, Nutmeg, Cinnamon Bark, Orange and the Thieves Blend. Here are a few of the recipes:

I use this scrub on my face, hands, feet, arms.. just about ANYWHERE!!  This recipe easily fits in a 4 oz jelly jar.

Pumpkin Spice Room Spray

1 Tablespoon Vodka or Witch Hazel
12 drops Clove Essential Oil
12 Drops Orange Essential Oil
5 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
1 cup distilled water
Spray bottle

Add vodka, then essential oils to spray bottle.  Top off with 1 cup of water.  Attach lid and label.

Thieves Foaming Hand Soap

3 T. Bronners Castile Soap
1/2 t. vegetable glycerin
4 drops Thieves Essential Oil
Distilled Water

Add all ingredients to a foaming soap dispenser!

If you do not wish to make this one on your own, Young Living offers Thieves Foaming Hand Soap for purchase: individually, in a 3-pack, or as a refill concentrate. (They also offer Lavender Foaming Hand Soap!!)

*Not all essential oils are created equally. Most essential oils that you buy in stores are not pure and could do harm if applied topically, breathed in or ingested.  Do your research as to which oils are safe.  I have spent hours upon hours of looking into Young Living and I fully trust their process in extracting essential oils without harsh chemicals or high temperatures.  
There are a lot of essential oils mentioned in this post and most of them come in a fabulous starter kit.  Want to know where to get them?  Follow this link HERE.  Be sure to check it out!
