DIY Homemade Natural Chest Soother

Are you ready for winter?  I always like to be prepared for anything – all the stuff that comes with season changes, I am on it!

This weekend my daughter and my four year old made up an easy Homemade Chest Soother I
made specifically to refresh us during the winter months – with an amazing blend of Young Living Raven Essential Oil and Eucalyptus Radiata.

Why this blend?  

Raven

This blend helps support a healthy wellness routine.  You’ll find these singles in the blend:

Ravintsara:  has a spicy, camphorous, warm scent, similar to eucalyptus but softer.

Lemon:  has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant.

Wintergreen:  contains the same active ingredient (methyl salicylate) as birch and is beneficial in massage for soothing head tension and muscles after exercising.

Peppermint:  has a strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma.

Eucalyptus Radiata:  is cooling, refreshing, and energizing.

Eucalyptus Radiata

This single oil, as seen from the testing above, has the potential to be very effective in supporting a wellness lifestyle.

I decide to combine these two oils for this ‘soother’ that would already be in an easy to use diluted form so we could easily apply when needed.  I wanted additional Eucalyptus, so added the additional 10 drops.

DIY All-Natural Chest Soother Recipe

1/2 CUP Coconut Oil (we use this)

40 drops of Young Living’s Raven Essential Oil

10 drops of Young Living’s Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil

Melt the coconut oil and add in the essential oil.  Mix and then pour into a glass jar that can be sealed.  Makes 1/2 cup.

This was super easy to make and was fun for my four year old to help out with.  Now he is much more prone to take an active approach to help apply it to his chest – you know how finicky those toddlers can be sometimes!  

You could also add some Rosemary or Thyme, other oils that help with supporting wellness too. Make sure everyone washes their hands with soap after applying to avoid any accidental touching of eyes, or other sensitive areas.

DIY Homemade Relaxation Bath Salts

I love finding homemade remedies for supporting my body. Not only does it save money, but I also have full knowledge of the ingredients I am using. This is becoming even more important to me as I try to weed out the stuff that my body certainly does not need!

DIY Homemade Relaxation Bath Salts

Today I wanted to share with you a quick recipe for making your own bath salts. Since discovering the benefits of essential oils, I am finding more and more ways to incorporate oils into my daily life and routine so that I can fully reap better health and emotional well-being. 

I wanted to mix up my own recipe for bath salts – so I decided to experiment one afternoon. I knew we had an old box of Rock Salt in the garage that we had purchased to make homemade ice cream, which didn’t happen – so after some research I found I could easily substitute the Rock Salt for any Sea Salt in a recipe. So being the frugalista that I am, I did just that! I had all the other ingredients available, so I was set. Here is the recipe I used:

Relaxing Bath Salts

  •  2 cups Epsom Salt
  •  1 cup sea salt
  •  1/2 cup baking soda
  •  10-15 drops essential oil

Combine the salts and baking soda into a metal or glass bowl. Do not use plastic; it will absorb the scent from the essential oils.

Once the salts and baking soda are mixed well, simply drop in 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil that is safe for skin contact.

Fill an air tight container with the bath salts, label, and you are good to go!

In this particular recipe, I used Young Living Lavender essential oil with a few drops of Harmony (which I love for bringing a calming sense) and Motivation (which is kinda like getting a natural ‘kick in the rear’!) You can easily experiment with different blends of bath salts for morning and evening using the many different essential oils. I currently have one I am trying that uses Rosemary as the base oil.
