Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils prior to application. They carry the essential oils further into the tissue or help hold the essential oil topically. Carrier oils vary in thickness. Tired and overworked muscles respond best when the essential oils penetrate deep into the tissue. For this application, choose a lighter viscosity carrier oil.

If applying to someone with sensitive skin, use a medium viscosity carrier oil to slow down the rate of absorption.

Fast Absorption
Safflower
Hazelnut
Grapeseed
Apricot Kernel
Canola
Camellia Seed
Rose Hip

Average Absorption
Jojoba
Coconut
Argan
Olive

Fractionated Coconut Oil
Sweet Almond Oil
Young Living V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex

Balms and Salves – Coco Butter, Shea Butter Coconut Oil.

The really thick oils can be used as a barrier.

When using carrier oils in making your own skin care recipe, you will want to consider the comedogenic rating of the different carrier oils. Choosing carrier oils with lower comedogenic rating will reduce the likelihood of clogged pores.

Comedogenic Ratings

0 – Won’t clog pores
1 – Very low likelihood of clogging pores
2 – Moderately low
3 – Moderate
4 – Fairly high
5 – High likelihood of clogging pores

Argan Oil – 0

Five Easy Steps to Blending Essential Oils

Decide on the purpose or reason that you’re creating the blend.
Choose the application method – bath, diffusion, compress, massage etc.
If necessary get the supplies you need (like V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex or diffuser etc.)

Select 3 – 5 essential oils that will work together to accomplish your purpose.

Choose the dosage or concentration level of the oils you need – for the method you want.

Carrier Volume 1% EO 2% EO 4% EO
1/2 Ounce (1 TBS) 3 Drops 6 Drops 12 Drops
1 Ounce (2 TBS) 6 Drops 12 Drops 24 Drops

1% is great for kids and the elderly
2% is great for all over body lotion type application
4% is great for concentrated area of massage

Add the oils to your carrier oil or lotion or to your bath (usually 8 – 10 drops) or whatever method you chose – and enjoy!

Other things to remember:

• Only add 1 oil to a “ready made blend”.
• Use only 3 – 5 oils to make your own blend.
• Blend just one drop at a time. One drop can make a big difference.
• Write down what you do – so you avoid making mistakes twice and also so that you can recreate what you like.
• Blend in small quantities so that you don’t have a big batch of something you hate. Once your blend is perfected
you may go ahead and make larger quantities.
• Mix your oils in a glass container.
• Have FUN! Let imagination and your nose guide you.

Every year about this time people start feeling like doing a little spring cleaning. Do you find yourself feeling motivated to freshen things up a bit after a long winter with the house closed up and the furnace or a wood burner running? There is something motivating about the spring. It makes you feel like getting out and doing things. I find myself wanting to give the house a good cleaning.

Most of the cleaning products on the market these days are full of toxic chemicals that are not at all good for your health. I’m sure you are like me, you do NOT want to be poisoning your family every day with the products you are using to clean your home. Health and safety data only exists for 15 percent of all the chemicals out there, even though so many are known to cause asthma or endocrine disruptions.

Essential oils are a better way. They are totally free of harsh chemicals, steam distilled or cold pressed from pure plants. Young Living’s Thieves Product Line is plant based and free of dangerous harsh chemicals.


Young Living Thieves Products


Here are a few DIY recipes using Thieves Products for natural cleaning in your home.

Glass and Mirror Cleaner

1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner
5 drops Citrus Fresh essential oil (or any citrus oils)
1 teaspoon white vinegar
3 cups water

Add all ingredients to a spray bottle and shake well to combine. To use, spray windows and glass surfaces liberally and wipe clean with a lint-free cloth.

Deep Cleaning Scrub

1 capful Thieves Household Cleaner
2–3 tablespoons baking soda
3 drops Young Living Lemon Essential oil
Combine Thieves Household Cleaner and enough baking soda to form a thick paste. Apply mixture with a clean cloth, sponge, or scrubbing brush and scour the surface thoroughly.

Deep Cleaning Scrub – Larger batch

Ingredients:
3 cups Baking Soda
3/4 cup Thieves Household Cleaner
1 Tbsp Distilled Vinegar
30 drops Young Living Lemon Essential oil

Directions:
1. In a large glass bowl, add your Thieves Household cleaner, vinegar and Lemon essential oil.
2. Then slowly add your baking soda, stirring to combine.
3. Once completely mixed through, transfer to your desired container. I recycled my old honey jar. It fit perfectly. You could even use an old soap dish bottle. (However you may need to add a bit of water to thin it enough to squirt through the top)
4. Use wherever a little more scrubbing action is needed.
Once completely mixed through, transfer to your desired container. You may need to add a bit of water to thin it if you are using a squirt bottle like an old dish soap bottle.

Once you finish your spring cleaning, why not have a cup of tea with a couple drops of Citrus Fresh in it. It’s Oh So Tasty. ; )

You’ve got a date night planned with your sweetie and it’s going to be a romantic dinner and a little love and snuggling. Sometimes getting in the mood can be a challenge, especially when you have had a busy or stressful day. Some days you just want to curl up under a blanket and watch a movie or read a book. That’s when I like to grab a few of my favorite essential oils to get in the mood. 😉

One thing that always makes me feel sexy is fragrance. Long before I started using essential oils I loved fragrance to feel sexy. I used bath products and perfumes. Back then I didn’t know how many harsh chemicals are in most of the personal care products on the market.

I am grateful that, over 22 years ago, I learned about essential oils. They are way better for shifting the mood than those products with harsh chemicals that are known to cause headaches, rashes, sinus issues and more. Day by day these harsh chemicals of concern are undermining our health, and working against any actions we take to improve health.

Anyway …
Essential Oils to Set the Mood For Romance
When I am needing a bit of a lift I like to start with Rose essential oil. I call Rose oil the “BIG GUNS”. There is just no way you can smell this oil, and have a bad day. Young Living rose oil is nothing like anything you have ever smelled before. It is NOT the sweet smell you expect after smelling cheap oils. It has a rich, intense smell to it. It doesn’t really smell like fresh roses to me, because it is so concentrated and potent. Rose oil has the highest frequency of any measured oil – 350 megahertz, provided that it has been distilled properly and not adulterated.

One drop in a little carrier oil is wonderful. Add a drop of oil to your favorite recipes for romance.

I like to add a couple drops of Rose oil to Young Living’s Joy essential oil blend. I love that combination.

One oil that REALLY gets me going is when my husband wears Young Living’s Shutran. Just smelling it on him, OH MY!

Lady Sclareol is an oil blend that you can apply to your neck and wrists to wear as a perfume or mix with a carrier oil to add a warm sexy bath.

Ylang Ylang and Jasmine oils are two oils I like to wear as perfume and add to all kinds of romantic recipes. Both Ylang Ylang and Jasmine are very sexy smelling oils.

Ylang Ylang is steam distilled from flowers of trees grown in Ecuador and Madagascar, Ylang Ylang essential oil has a sweet, fruity aroma that is the perfect complement to any romantic or relaxing evening. Its moisturizing properties make it a key ingredient in many luxury skin and hair products. Ylang Ylang is often classified as a “heart” note in blends because it emerges just as the top notes begin to dissipate.

    Help moisturize skin and enhance the appearance of healthy looking skin by adding a few drops of Ylang Ylang to your favorite skin care products.

    Make a linen spray to set the mood for a romantic evening by combining 5 drops of Ylang Ylang with water and witch hazel in a glass spray bottle.

    Wear Ylang Ylang calming and relaxing perfume. Apply it over your heart or on your wrists. Rub it onto your palms, cup your hands over your nose, and inhale deeply to inspire feelings of serenity and joy.

    Massage it into your scalp to increase the appearance of healthy, shiny hair. Add a couple drops of Ylang Ylang to coconut oil for a deep conditioning hair treatment that will nourish your and scalp and support the appearance of healthy, shiny hair while leaving it smelling floral and sweet.

    Create a spa-like experience by putting a few drops of Ylang Ylang into a hot bath to unwind after a long day.

I also like to make my own personal lubricant with a bit of coconut oil and a couple drops of Mister. I discovered that one by accident when I was out of Dragon Time Massage oil.

You could make up a personal lubricant with 1 oz of coconut oil, 5 drops of Sensation, 2 drops of Black Pepper and 2 drops of Peppermint. Sensation oil blend helps to create a romantic mood, while Black Pepper and Peppermint provide a warm/cool sensation.

Experiment with combinations to find what you personally like. Just, please don’t use petrochemical lubricants.

Essential Oils For Romance - Ylang Ylang
Sensual Massage
Many of these oils can be used with a sensual massage. Choose whatever oils you prefer and add them to coconut oil or other carrier oil that is free of harmful chemicals.
Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang or Sensation with a few drops of coconut oil for a sensual massage oil. Apply to the VitaFlex points on the feet, ankles and lower abdomen.

Many people like to start off the new year by setting resolutions to make changes like losing weight, exercising more, eat healthier, stop smoking, start improving their financial situation by removing debt or building a business or a number of other things.


There are many oils that are helpful for making changes in your life. There are many good essential oil blends that are good to help you in the process of working toward goals and resolutions. Actually, I don’t really like New Year’s Resolutions. People usually don’t take those seriously, however, I am a firm believer in setting goals and making action plans to achieve those goals.


Essential oils are very useful to help focus your energy and intent. To make that even more powerful, why not use essential oils along with EFT to really power up your focus and intent as you are working toward your goal. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a powerful tool in making changes and removing negative things that block your success.


Essential Oils - Motivation, Transformation and Release With EFT for Goals and Resolutions

When you are using oils with EFT, you just add 2 or 3 drops of oil to your fingertips before you begin tapping through the EFT points.


Motivation: This is one of my favorite oil blends for help getting moving. Motivation oil can help you overcome negativity and procrastination, so you can move past old patterns and reach your goals.


Using Motivation oil and EFT For lack of motivation when you are not motivated to exercise. For that, You could use a setup phrase like: “Even though I am not motivated to exercise, I deeply love and accept myself.” Then tap through the points. It doesn’t matter which points you tap on. Just tap through the points while focusing on the words. You can add your own words too.


Use Release essential oil blend when you want to release any negative emotion or limitations.

Use Transformation essential oil blend when you finish tapping through the clearing and feel ready to move forward. Focus on the positive thing you are working toward and see yourself achieving it.

Here’s and EFT Script to help you get motivated:


Apply 1 – 3 drops of Release oil on your fingertips, then tap on the Karate Chop Point with the oiled up fingertips. As you are tapping the EFT Points, you will have enough remaining oil to carry to all the other points.


Reaching Goals with Essential Oils and EFT
While tapping the Karate Chop Point, Repeat 3 Times:


Even though I have been feeling unmotivated, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I don’t feel like doing anything, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I’m just not motivated to do ____________, I choose to do it now.


Focusing on the negative feelings you want to release.


I am not feeling motivated.
I don’t feel like doing it.
Feeling really discouraged.
I just can’t seem to get started.
I am resisting getting started.
I don’t know what to do so I put it off until later.
I’m a little tired so I will wait till later.
I don’t feel motivated.
I want the changes but I am not feeling like doing the work.
I’m tired of thinking about this.
I don’t want to get it going.
Yes I DO want to get it going.
But I am feeling unmotivated.
Releasing the habit of putting things off.
Letting go of the unmotivated feeling.
I am releasing the unmotivated feeling.
Letting go of the unmotivated feeling.
Release and let go of the unmotivation.


Switching to Positive Feelings


I can shift this mood anytime and I choose to shift it now.
I choose to feel motivated.
I am feeling motivated.
I choose to get moving.
I step into energy and motivation.
I am moving forward one step at a time.
I feel good moving forward.
