OK, so, y’all know I love my Young Living essential oils and I have a hard time not talking about them constantly. In fact, around the house anytime one of the kids mentions a problem to me I reply with, “Well you know what you need?” “Yes Mom. I need oils.” Doesn’t matter if it’s a sunburn or a math question….I’ve got an oil for that!
Ain’t it great?!
In fact, I get a wagonload of questions everyday from you all asking me what I would recommend for this and how you would use them for that and I try to help as much as I can. I am, however, a one man operation so I get sidetracked occasionally by things like washing dishes and going for walks with my 12 years old.
So I want to address here the answer to the number one question I get, “Where do you buy those little roller bottles and what’s the ratio of carrier to essential oil that you use in them?” No kidding….someone asks me that almost everyday!
The reason I use the roller bottles is so that I can have diluted oils ready when I need them, which as you can assume, is daily. Not only is it handy, but it also saves money. When it comes to something this pure, you get what you pay for and Young Living products cost money (although, if you want I can also help you find ways to get them for free, but that’s another post). So I like to dilute them immediately when I get them in the mail. That way they are ready for me to use and I don’t hesitate to use the diluted oils on my kids.
We all use those unless we are dealing with something dramatic that needs a full strength help (and you can’t put the diluted oils in you diffuser!).
I buy my roller bottles at Abundant Health. And I use my handy dandy label maker so they’re easy to grab. And for the carrier, my top choice is Young Living’s V6, but you can also use jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil.
As for the ratio, I am not very scientific about it. I just fill the roller bottle about 2/3 full then add a total of about 25 drops of essential oil. So if I am putting several oils together I do 12/13 or 10/10/5, etc. I really don’t worry about it. I just play mad scientist and enjoy the results! You can always add more!
But, here’s the great news, I am going to make it really easy for you to get started if you are ready to start using them! I am sending all of my new May members that get the Premium Starter Kit (PSK) 10 roller bottles WITH labels to get you started. You’ll be all set to dilute when you get your kit! And I will also send my favorite reference book AND an empty perfume spray bottle that I carry with me constantly.
The spray bottle gives a little spritz of your favorite oil whenever you need it! For that, you’ll need filtered water and a few drops of the essential oil that you want to be able to refresh yourself with throughout the day. I keep 2 in my purse. One is filled with Joy (which comes in your PSK) and in the other I combine bergamot, lemon and ylang ylang. Not only is the smell divine, but it helps my moods and my energy. I call my homemade perfume “Lisa”, because I’m clever like that.
In the PSK you get 11 oils, a diffuser and various samples. It’s a great deal by itself and then I send the stuff from me in addition to that…..yessirree! That’s something to get excited about.
So if this is the deal you’ve been waiting for….click HERE to get started and I’ll send your extras package to you within a couple of weeks.
