It’s time again to share with you all my favorite essential oils that I have been living for lately. I try and make sure I’m getting good use out of the oils that I have one because they are amazing and two because I want to get all the use out them that I can. So I always have a few in rotation that I reach for often before switching it up. That’s not to say I don’t continue to use certain oils regularly but this month I have been living for Ylang Ylang the most! Lime and the “joyful” blend have also been amazing lately. Here’s a bit more about each oil and what you can use them for!
Ylang Ylang somehow passed me by which is such a bummer because Ylang Ylang is incredibly beneficial for regulating blood flow and assisting with heart health, palpitations, and tachycardia. I have had tachycardia from an arrhythmia accompanied with palpatations for two years and let me tell you it’s no fun. Incorportating ylang ylang has already been beneficial for me. Ylang Ylang is also a mood booster as well as having a calming affect when used aromatically. It’s also one of the main ingredients used in the ever-popular Chanel No. 5, except this way you are getting it straight from the source!
-Apply a drop of ylang ylang with a carrier oil to the back of your neck when you are feeling stressed and anxious.
– Add two-three drops into coconut oil and apply as a mask to your hair to help maintain smooth and healthy hair.
-Place a drop with a carrier oil over your heart daily to promote blood flow and heart health.
-Use a veggie cap to take a drop internally to provide antioxidant support.
If I’m going to be honest one of my absolute favorite uses for lime is making guacamole and adding a drop to that. It’s honestly the best. I even got my mom hooked on it. Like other citrus oils lime is refreshing and energizing both when taken internally and used aromatically. Taken internally it can provide internal cleansing benefits. When used aromatically it provides a great mood boost. It’s also great for natural cleaners due to it’s purifying properties.
-Diffuse to cleanse and purify the air around you as well as boost your mood.
-Add a drop of lime to water to flavor or in any other dishes that you would use lime. Like, Oh I don’t know, guacamole. Sorry. Had to.
– Add a drop to your facial cleanser or to your shampoo to take advantage of it’s cleansing properties.
I think we all know January can be a rough month for a lot of people. The holidays are over, you’re back to work, winter is hitting hard in a lot of parts of the world, it’s cold and gray and you just feel blah. Enter: The Joyful Blend! Elevation is one of my absolute favorite blends and I’m not just being funny when I say I feel happy just by smelling it. Elevation is a blend of Lavandin, Lavender, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, and Osmanthus with Tangerine, Elemi, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Lemon Myrtle. The floral scents that make-up Elevation helps to energize you and boost your mood. Roller balls are perfect for these blends so you can add about 40 drops some and then top it off with a carrier oil making it easy to use topically.
– Rub Elevation essential oil over your heart, temples, or wrists to elevate mood.
-Diffuse Elevation to help reduce stress and tension.
-Rub over heart and temples with a carrier oil to receive the same de-stressing benefits.
-Add a few drops into a bath with some Epsom salts to help you relax.

Undiluted oils may cause reactions if you have sensitive skin. If you are using oils topically be sure to make sure you won’t have any reactions to them. If they are too strong for you then use them with a carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil) to dilute them. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
