Young Living Lavender Oil!

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Essential Oil is a wonderfully calming oil, bringing comfort to the entire body from head to toe. When diffused, this oil helps to encourage peaceful, relaxation, which makes it an especially great choice for bedtime diffusing. Adding a few drops to bath products such as soaps, shampoos, and the like makes for a spa-like shower experience. Lavender is also soothing to the skin and can provide relief when used on cuts, scrapes, and bruises.
Lavender Vitality makes for a versatile addition to culinary experiences. From savory dishes, with herbs like thyme, rosemary, and oregano, to sweet desserts or fruit jellies, this oil can enhance almost any dish.
Some of my favorite uses for Lavender and Lavender Vitality are:
1.  Lavender Vitality-Lemon Vitality water: I like adding a drop to a pitcher with a few drops of Lemon Vitality and just a little sweetener to give my citrus water a twist, or I’ll just add one drop of each to a glass of water.

2. Lavender roller: 10 drops in a 10 ml roller bottle filled with carrier oil (my personal favorite is organic olive oil) – I roll this on to support the skin after minor injuries.
3. Diffusing Lavender with Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils are what we call the “Mardi Gras Trio” to help support our sinuses during times of seasonal discomfort.
4. I add a drop to my Shampoo and Conditioner recipes to support healthy hair.
5. I like adding Lavender to my DIY Foaming Hand Soap for a smooth hands.
6. A drop of Lavender can be comforting on canker sores, though I must say, I find it tastes a little weird all by itself, but the relief is worth it to me!
7. I use a few drops of Lavender in my moisturizer as well, which is in a roller bottle filled with Jojoba oil along with several drops of Frankincense and Lemon Essential Oils.
These are just a few of my favorite reasons why I love Lavender and Lavender Vitality, but you certainly don’t have to take my word for it. Want to do your own research about this oil? Check out the following peer-reviewed studies, or discover some yourself at:

Young Living’s Lemon Oil and Lemon Vitality!

Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon peel oil) is such an amazingly versatile oil. Its dietary counterpart is Lemon Vitality. The light, clean scent of Lemon is wonderful for diffusing to eliminate odors and freshen the air; other uses vary from household cleaning to personal care. Some of my favorites are:
1. 1-2 drops Lemon Vitality in a glass of water for a flavor enhancer/natural detox (had too many adult beverages? Drink lemon water before bed and you’ll feel great in the morning!)
2. 1 drop Lemon Vitality in a bowl of water to use as a fruit/veggie soak

3. 1 drop Lemon EO on tough, sticky residue from labels, price tags, etc – I used it on a glass that had writing with sharpie on it and it came right off after all of my other failed attempts to remove it
4. 1 drop Lemon EO to reduce the appearance of blemishes (though do not use right before going outside, as it can cause photo sensitivity)
5. add a few drops Lemon EO to your DIY hand soap for a fresh, clean scent
6. For immunity support, use the Thieves Tea Recipe: 1 drop Lemon Vitality, 1 drop Peppermint Vitality, 1 drop Thieves Vitality, 1 tsp of honey, all in a mug of hot water or tea
7. 2-3 drops Lemon Vitality mixed in to homemade cream cheese frosting to add a tasty zing

Homemade Thieves Throat Drops Recipe!

Homemade Thieves Throat Drops

I love, love, love these throat drops and more importantly my kids love them!  Thieves and lemon are such great immunity boosters, but it’s hard for me to get my kids to consume thieves because of the strong taste. The taste of thieves in these drops is masked by the honey, and coughs and that scratchy throat feeling are gone immediately!

You only need 3 ingredients:
1 cup raw ulfiltered honey (local if possible)
8 drops Thieves Young Living Esssential Oil
4 drops Lemon Young Living Essential Oil

You’ll also need:
Quart sized or slightly smaller saucepan
1 candy thermometer
Silicone candy molds or parchment paper
IMG_7173

First, pour the honey in the saucepan and set to slightly over medium heat.  (On  my electric stove I use a 6.)
Cook the honey until it gets to 300 degrees.  This is important, because if it doesn’t get to 300 the lozenges won’t get hard, but if it gets too hot the honey can start to burn.  The honey will look similar to this:

When it gets to 300 degrees, remove from heat and let it cool.  Don’t cool it in the fridge or it will start to harden unevenly.  When the honey begins to set, add in the oils and stir.  Spoon the mixture into silicone molds or onto parchment paper. Do this as quickly as possible because the longer the honey cools, the more stiff and taffy like it will get.  Make sure you don’t use wax paper, as the lozenges will stick.  (I speak from experience) This is how mine came out.  Not exactly perfect, but my mouth doesn’t know the difference. 🙂

Once they’re cooled (it only takes a few minutes), wrap in parchment paper to keep the lozenges from sticking together, or if you’re like me and this step sounds too complicated, I find they don’t stick to each other if you keep them in the freezer in a ziplock bag.  This recipe can definitely get a little messy, but it’s an easy clean up, and so worth it!  My kids always come to me asking for their oils when they start feeling bad.  Now they ask for these lozenges too! 🙂
