Oil-Infused Holiday Feast

Who’s looking forward to Thanksgiving next week? I love spending time with family, especially when there’s yummy food involved!

This will be the first “oily” holiday season. I’m looking forward to incorporating essential oils into my holiday cooking, and after Thanksgiving I plan to start working on some handmade holiday gifts that incorporate my Young Living essential oils! I’ll be posting about those gift ideas in the coming weeks.

For now, I want to share with you some delicious oil-infused holiday recipes. I hope you and your families have a  blessed Thanksgiving next week! Enjoy!

Stop That Itch!

After yesterday’s post about the best bug spray ever, I realized I had not posted about my Itch Away roll on! This was actually my very first essential oil blend I ever used. A week after receiving my PSK (premium starter kit), I had a flare up of a recurring condition. I was itchy and in some pain and so desperately trying to avoid the months-long recovery I dealt with during my first flare up.

Stop THAT Itch! (1)

I was very new to essential oils, so I relied on my handy-dandy pocket reference and the wonderful Simply Natural Facebook group as resources. Not only did the blend reduce the itching/pain from that flare up, it’s now a staple in my oily medicine cabinet. Any time I have a minor skin irritation(bug bites, rash, contact dermatitis, etcetera), I pull out my new roller blend!

Here’s my recipe:

Itch Away Roller Blend

10 drops tea tree essential oil

10 drops lavender essential oil

20 drops fractionated coconut oil

Use a small metal funnel to pour all ingredients into the roller bottle. Now you’ve got a great remedy ready to go whenever you need it!
