VALENTINES DAY DIFFUSER BLENDS

HELLLLOOOO LOVER!!
The month of love isn't just for couples!! No matter how you spend your time celebrating, do so with some of these amazing diffuser blends!! I've always been obsessed with sultry smells and the oils in these combinations. What about you? 

And speaking of amazing smells….

DIY PERFUME BLENDS

I will be the first to tell you, swapping out my perfumes was the last thing on my ditch list! I was going to need some pretty enticing combinations if I was going to give up my faves-even if I knew they were filled with ingredients that weren't the cleanest.

If that's you too, sister, you are not alone! BUTTTT I have to tell you-once you try these you will see exactly why I made the leap!!

Here are a few of my tips for making sure your diy perfumes are pulling their weight:


GET SOME PRETTY BOTTLES:

A big part of feeling feminine are the beautiful aromas we love to spray. It's also a lot about presentation..so have fun with it and when you find your favorite blend, order yourself some gorgeous bottles to display it in!!

CHOOSING TOP NOTES, BODY NOTES & BASE NOTES: 

Top Notes:

Makes between 10-20% of the blend.

These essential oils have the characteristic of being very volatile (they evaporate very quickly). This means that you will get the full scent very quickly and then the scent will dissipate very quickly.

Because of this characteristic, this scent will give the first impression of the perfume blend. The scents of the oils in this note will tend to be light, fresh, and uplifting.

Common oils in the top note will be: Basil, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Coriander, Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lemongrass, Lime, Orange, Peppermint, Petitgrain, Spearmint, Tangerine, Melaleuca and Wintergreen.

Body Notes:

Makes between 60-80% of the blend.

These essential oils will give the full body to the perfume blend. These are not quite as volatile as the Top Notes and will take a little longer to be noticed (typically 20-60 minutes after application).

Generally these will be warm and comforting scents.

Common oils in the middle note will be: Black Pepper, Cardamom, Cilantro, Cypress, Fir, Fennel, Geranium, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Marjoram, Melissa, Oregano, Roman Chamomile, Rosemary, and Thyme.

Base Notes:

Makes up between 10-20% of the blend.

These essential oils will have a more foundational fragrance. They will be noticable for quite awhile (typically an hour or two after application) and they also slow down the evaporation of the oils from the top two notes.

These will generally have the fragrance of being very rich and also very relaxing in nature.

Common oils in the base note essential oils list will be: Blue Tansy, Cassia, Cedarwood, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, Copaiba, Frankincense, Ginger, Helichrysum, Jasmine, Myrrh, Patchouli, Rose, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang

USE VODKA AS YOUR CARRIER:

Using vodka as a base is fantastic for making spray perfumes that evaporate around you. The projection of vodka is stronger than perfume oils, allowing you to experience the top, middle, and base notes more thoroughly. A little spritz of these perfumes goes a long way.


GET INSPIRED:
Sometimes the thing that gets me in a rut with making rollers or perfume blends is feeling stumped on which oils to use. So get INSPIRED!! Hold your favorite essential oils below your nose with their lids off and gently breathe in the aromas. Do the oils smell good together? I like to add a little citrus to any blends that can be more spicy. It helps to break it up and add a little sunshine.

 

The beauty of DIY is that you can play around with this and have fun! See if you can “recreate” a blend that is similar to a perfume or scent from your past that elicits happy emotions.  And when in doubt, check out the recipes above that are tried and true. I'm sure you'll love them!!

FALL IN LOVE WITH ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL!!

 

One of Young Living's most luxury oils, who has this and loves it?! 

I love the "Stay Golden" roller - NLBS, Vetiver, Orange and Rose. Soooo good!

I also put a drop on the crown of my head because it puts you in the best mood ever.

It has the highest frequency of any other essential oil and will give you a HAPPY HIGH like no other!

Here are some of our teams favorite products that we LOVE to triplicate:

Laundry Soap: https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17889170770488867/

Hand Soap: I love to buy the concentrated hand soap refill bottle. I can get MONTHS of use out of just one bottle.

Simply fill the foaming handpump 1/3 of the way full, top with water and that's it!

Thieves Hand Soap as Bubblebath: http://bit.ly/2GwMBei

Triplicating Dish Soap:  http://bit.ly/2UxOPyS

DIY Clarifying Shampoo: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CE4dak0Fq6o/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Kids Body Wash: Shelby Azbell loves to save the bottles from her empty foaming hand soaps and fill them up 1/3 of the way with kids body wash, top with water, and get MULTIPLE uses out of her one bottle of concentrated solution. 

Thieves Cleaner: We love buying the 14 oz concentrated Thieves cleaner to use it for all our cleaning needs. We only use one capful in a 16 oz bottle of water. Doing this, we get 29 bottles of cleaner from just one!! We also stretch this by using it in place of EVERY other cleaner in our home. Dust, mop, shampooing carpets, stain removers on clothes...all.the.things!  

Swapping out your home doesn't need to be done all at once...start in your kitchen, then your bathrooms, then look at the makeup you are using and the supplements that you take! One by one and overtime you will look back and see what a HUGE difference you have made-especially when you are shopping for those products LESS since they are lasting you so much LONGER!!!!
