I LOVE my oils!! In fact, I love each and every produce from Young Living that I use. But I’ll start with the oils. I want to let you know what oils I use daily and how I use them. I think that is the most confusing part of starting an oily life – where to start!!
So, here’s an example of my day – start to finish – with my oily little loves:
6:00 – Wake Up!! It’s always too early… scrape my tongue, put on my yoga clothes. Grab a scent to inhale – lately it’s been Lemongrass. I put a drop in my hands, rub them together and cup them over my mouth and nose. Take a few deep breaths. Get ready.
6:10 – Work Out – I love youtube yoga workouts. There are a wide variety out there – I prefer 20-30 minutes in the morning.
6:30 – Spray my mat. I have a yoga mat cleaner recipe I’ll link here later that contains Tea Tree and Thieves oils.
6:35 – Oil pull and dry brush. I add Orange vitality oil to my coconut oil and swish it around. I put a drop on my dry brush and brush while my shower warms up.
6:45 – Get ready for the day – I use Thieves Toothpaste, and spray my hair with hair tonic made of Rosemary, Peppermint, and Tea Tree oil. If I have a blemish on my face, I’ll put Tea Tree oil on it immediately. I usually wear Stress Away and Patchouli on my wrists or my diffusing jewelry. I spray myself with my secret recipe of Peace and Calming 2, Patchouli, and Orange.
7:15 – Go to work. Make sure I grab a shot of Ningxia and put Lemon in my water bottle (stainless steel). I keep an extra bottle of Lemon Vitality in my desk drawer for more water throughout the day.
10:45 – I probably have a headache or some form of muscle tension – I keep Peppermint and Deep Relief in my purse for just such an occasion. I also keep Breathe Again in there.
4:00 – Arrive Home! I pick up the kids on the way. Once we’re home, I diffuse Thieves and Orange or Lemon. I love diffusing when we get home.
6:30 – Bath. I loooove baths and they are my relaxation during the day – when people leave me along and I can sit in silence. I usually add epsom salt and baking soda to my tub and add a variety of oils that I feel like that day. Favorites are relaxing Lavender, Orange, Grapefruit, Stress Away, or maybe Peppermint (be careful with Peppermint!! It can get really hot on your skin in the water – I keep coconut oil nearby just in case).
9:00 – Bedtime. I use ART facial products mostly, but have made my own DIY facewash at times. I like Frankincense on my face and the back of my neck. I will drip Valor down my spine, and put Lavender in my palm with sweet almond oil and rub on my feet. I might diffuse Cedarwood and Lavender or just put a drop of Cedarwood on my third eye area or the crown of my head. If I wake up at night, I find that Peace and Calming is the easiest to help me relax and fall right back to sleep.
So that’s it! I just go about my day and oils have fit seamlessly into it!!
