Essential Oils

We use essential oils in many, many ways in our homes and our work

Contact me if you want a sample or want me to suggest which ones are my favorites.  When you fall in love with them like I did, you can place an order every month and earn credit for FREE PRODUCTS!  I LOVE FREE STUFF!

I use the oils:

  • to flavor foods,
  • instead of (toxic) perfume,
  • instead of (toxic) air freshener or candles,
  • instead of (toxic) cleaning products,
  • and much, much more.

DIY: Essential Cologne FOR MEN

Instead of buying an expensive, toxic cologne, put a personal (and healthy) touch to it this year by making your own.
Cologne and perfume making is easy and fun. Make sure to check out our previous blog post for more information on how to get started.

These cologne recipes have been tried and tested by both men and women and have all been unanimously given two thumbs up. Feel free to switch up the oils to make your own personal blend.

These cologne recipes are about a 20% oil and 80% carrier oil based. If you want a stronger scent, you can make it up to a 30/70 ratio. The cologne recipes below are for a 1/3 oz. vial (10ml). You will need to adjust your recipe if you use a smaller or larger vial.
What You Need:

This recipe provides an “Earthy Spice” scent

1/3 oz. roll-on vial (10 ml). You can purchase them here.
10 drops Clove essential oil
20 drops White Fir essential oil
40 drops Bergamot essential oil
5 drops Lemon essential oil
280 drops Fractionated Coconut Oil

Tip: A dropper may be helpful in order for you to get the exact amount.

Directions:
1- Take a glass vial and combine all necessary drops of essential oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil into bottle. Attach the roll-on cap and shake the vial until the mixture is combined.

2- Let mixture sit for at least 24 hours before use. This allows the oils to fully combine.

3- You’re done! Apply cologne to wrists for best results.

Tips: To see if you like the scent, make a small sample first. If you like it, make a larger batch. You can always add more oils to the mixture later.
