OH PLS DO, Nights0ng!


I know peppermint is really strong. I haven't used it on my skin full strength, but nothing freshens a room as fast as a few drops. I have sprinkled it full strength, MINIMAL drops, before. I do use a mix of some essential oils as a perfume. Doesn't burn or anything and it IS essential oils with no carrier. Holds the scent better this way for me.

Would love recipes you care to share, Nights0ng!

hmmm...ok the book i had some recipes in seems to have grown legs and scampered off...

one i have in my head is one i use for room freshening and "energizing".

3-drops Bergamot
3-drops Grapefruit
3-drops Lemon (i've also substituted Tangerine also for a sweeter scent)

this mixed in approximately 6oz spritz bottle with distilled water.

a few spritzes will freshen up a room fast. a few spritzes as a "body mist", being that they're citrus scents, should help uplift and energize

I know this thread is old but I love essential oils. I have been working with them for quite a long time.

Today I challenged myself to work around "Petitgrain" I am very satisfied with the results. I blended: Frankincense, patchouli dark ( just 1 drop) Vetiver( again 1 drop) Cedarwood atlas and bergamot all onto the middle note of Petitgrain Earthy, woodsy with a slightly citrus floral teasingly coming up the back of it

And what did you use that mix for?

I love essential oils. Been using them for years. I keep a diffuser in my livingroom and run it mostly in the winter months when cold and flu season starts.

I used to have business selling essential oil products for dogs and people. I got a lot of my recipes from Kristen Leigh Bell's and Valerie Ann Worwood's books.

I love to use essential oils too!

I particularly like how it's fun and easy to prepare various mixes in the diffuser

But I also started to look up more seriously the different topical uses.

I usually HATE lavender but surprisingly tolerate the essential oil smell very well! It's one of my favorite, it has so many different properties!

Me too! I even brush my teeth with them.

I used to buy my oils from Original Swiss Aromatics in California. From what I can see, it is a small store. When a new group of people took over, I started having issues with adulterated oils. I need a new supplier I can trust.

I'm a huge fan of Frankincense I use it in the skincare products I make for myself, it's great for all skin types and even has anti-aging properties
I always love citrus oils for cleaning with too. I have a big bottle of mandarin that I've nearly finished
I'm looking at getting some black pepper and ginger to try making a warming rub for when I do deep tissue massage

I have this thing about "dust mites" ever since I read this article about "pillows". Plus...they do make me itch.

So, I combine Cloves bud oil, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood with a dash of Lemongrass, Citronella, and a few drops of Peppermint.

Citronella smells divine on it's own as does Lemongrass.

I spray absolutely everywhere and my place smells heavenly. I have no dust mite issues as they are kept to a minimal. In addition, I do take Vitamin B and Garlic capsules as a secondary measure. Hyperallegenic things as well including my new mattress.

The oil mixture worked before I got the hyperallegenic things though.

Happy itch free ATer!
