Hello! We are starting a new series called A Day in the Life. We are going to be talking about what we use and how we use oils and supplements each day. Everyone has their own routine when it comes to how they use oils and we all have different needs. I will kick it off for us this week with my routine around here.
To kick-start the day I use a lot of toxin-free products to get ready for the day. I LOVE the orange blossom face wash like no other face wash I have ever used!! If I could only recommend one skin care product it would be that one!!! I also use the ART intensive moisturizer which I add one or two drops of manuka oil to. Not every day but about every third day I use the mint facial scrub to smooth my skin out. The Young Living deodorant is really nice! It is important to not use antiperspirants with aluminum because they have been linked to dementia and Alzheimer’s. I love the hand and body lotions and usually use the Genesis scent. I also like the Thieves mouthwash and toothpaste. Lastly, I use Progessence Plus on my ankles morning and night to help balance my female hormones and frankincense on all of my scars.
Before I send my kids off to a germ filled school I use an immunity blend rollerball on both of the younger ones to help ward off the crud. The immunity blend has frankincense, oregano, Thieves, lemon, and tea tree oil with fractionated coconut oil as the carrier oil.
Just about all day every day we run the diffusers in the house. Frank looks like he’s going to cry but really he’s focused on discerning the blend!! If you want some diffuser blend recommendations check out our previous post: Why You Should Toss Your Candles…
We have ditched and switched the toxic laundry soaps and especially the super toxic fabric softener!! We LOVE the Thieves detergent, it’s amazing how powerful just one Tablespoon is on tough kid stains!! We also use wool balls instead of fabric softener. I was able to get the wool balls for not very much $ on Amazon. I keep them in this canister with all of my empty oil bottles to infuse them with oily goodness.
At bedtime we faithfully use our diffusers. Josh and I usually diffuse Peace and Calming but when we run out of that we diffuse a blend of lavender, cedarwood and vetiver. In the kids room I diffuse equal parts lavender and Thieves and I use a sleepytime rollerball (lavender, cedarwood, vetiver) on their necks as well.
There are some supplements that are indispensable for me!! Every single day with no exception I take Life 9 and Essentialzyme-4 before bed! We also take Ningxia Red and Omegagize daily. I love the Aminowise to help with muscle recovery after a workout. I also really like Super C when I hear anyone mention the crud as well as Super B for increased energy!
I also like to use oils instead of perfume. Some of my favorites are Joy, Inner Child, and Jasmine. There are tons of different oils that would work as perfume, even Stress Away!!
These are the things that I use consistently. There are a lot of other oils that I like to use, especially in the diffuser!! The more time you spend in an oily lifestyle the more comfortable you get trying new things and creating healthy habits!!
Hope all is well!!
