I am sharing a few of my favorite blend recipes for my oily sisters that we constantly have on hand. I have so enjoyed learning about the properties of essential oils and combining single oils into amazing blends where they can work together to help support our bodies.
Young Living has the most essential oils out of any company in the world – the most singles, blends, and oil infused supplements too – which blows my mind sometimes! Even still, I love to do a bit of “mad scientist” in my kitchen and blend up a few too!
All these can be placed in a 5 ml or 15 ml bottle (I reuse my old empty Young Living bottles, but if you don’t have any empty bottles I would pick up these to use). Put the indicated drops of oil (or double it) and then add some carrier oil for the dilution you desire. For these I always dilute with at least 1-2 teaspoons of carrier oil, just for preference. I will place a rollerball topper on, and they are ready to go!
Happy Mama Blend
When you feel like you just need a little something to take the edge off, this one will do it. We all have those days where the morning gets off to a rough start or the dog throws up right when you are running out the door to an appointment. This is when you may need a little emotional support to bring you back to a happy place.
I love having this mixed up and ready to apply. I carry it in my purse. It’s a must! And do not be afraid to use it on other unsuspecting humans – like kids or husband!
Calming Zen Blend
Do you see a bit of a trend here? My original interest in learning about essential oils was all about supporting my emotions. I was in need of something to help me find calm, ease the mommy frustration, and get my joy back. So I have a lot of different blends for emotional support. This one is especially wonderful in the evening and also for active kiddos who may be driving you crazy!
Winter Wellness Blend
This blend packs a powerful punch. We use it almost daily in our home before my little guy heads off to school. The oils here all have amazing properties and are so soothing. We apply this to the bottoms of our feet, on the spine, or behind the ears. This one is typically diluted with 2 teaspoons of carrier oil. It’s efficient and effective!
Happy Sinus Blend
Winter can be a drag for many – but with consistent use of this little gem, you can breath easy all winter long and even into the spring. I will apply this to my forehead or even across my cheeks if need be. I will also run it along the back of my neck or on my chest.
Breathe Chest Blend
This will open your airways up to keep breathing easy. The smell is divine and powerful! Dorado Azul is so unique. I love it! This one must be diluted, so be sure to add at least 2 teaspoons of carrier to this recipe. Amazing when applied on the chest or along the spine.
Mixing up blends so they are ready to apply is one of the best ways to be ready for anything. I have these mixed, labeled, and ready to go.
Which one will you mix up first?
