Essential Oil Organization

I've always loved essential oils and I bought my first Young Living starter kit a few years ago. Life got crazy busy and all my oils were packed away. Just when I needed them the most I had forgotten about the wonderful benefits. I did start using them again casually during our IVF process, and I used lavender and peppermint during childbirth. Now after buying a few new ones and my favorite Joy blend, I've started to diffuse daily, along with applying topically the blends and sprays I've mixed together. I love to add a few drops of Grapefruit oil to my water and it is very refreshing during this summer heat.

I do believe I got out of the habit of using my oils because I had them in a basket hidden away. Now I have them out in the kitchen and it's a great reminder for me to use them throughout the day. After I start brewing the morning coffee I will start to diffuse our oils in the living room while Magnolia is playing. I apply Joy on my heart after my shower and before running errands. My new favorite is Valor and I use it on my neck when I feel tension developing. I drink water constantly. I've always drank a lot of water, but now with breastfeeding I literally carry my water with me from room to room throughout the day. Adding Grapefruit oil to my water adds a nice zing and its helps with weight management. I've still got a few pounds of baby weight to lose so I'll take any extra help I can get!

I shared this sugar scrub that I use every other day or so and it's really the best scrub I've ever used. It's so nice to have exfoliated skin before using self tanner. The best part is I know exactly what is in it and when I run out I can make a new batch in just a few minutes.

I plan to share a few other recipes here soon, like the one I use on Magnolia's skin every night after her bubble bath.

For me, the key to incorporating essential oils into my life is to have them organized and easy to reach. I wanted to share a few photos of our oils in our kitchen. I found the little acrylic organizer at Target in the dollar section! It was only three dollars and what a steal.

Have a great weekend!
