Did you know that purchased hand sanitizer's main ingredient is linked to liver and kidney issues? I think you can agree that most of us are overly clean using these at the drop of a hat.  

Try this instead!  

3 Tablespoons of Aloe Vera Gel
1 Tablespoon of filtered water
5 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil
1 Teaspoon Vit E

Combine all together and mix well.  Transfer ingredients into a squeeze bottle (you know, like the ones you can get for liquids for traveling.  

Carry with you to use for that clean feeling!

Top Five Oils that you MUST have

When you are first starting out with oils, you ask yourself, "What are the oils that I really MUST have?"

For the next 5 posts we will talk about the top 5 essential oils that should always be in your arsenal.

From bottom to top, the fifth oil is......drumroll please.........Lemon!  (or citrus oils)

Young Living Lemon can be used topically as well as Dietary.

  *   Includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene.
  *   Enhances the flavor of foods and water.  Add a couple of drops to your water, up to 3 times a day.  You will want to increase it slowly though or you'll be in the bathroom more than you wish.
  *   Works as a excellent cleaner as well especially when mixed with Mel A.. (Think sticky residue)

This oil is distilled from the peel of the plant which makes it higher in antioxidants and fat soluble nutrients. It takes 75 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of Lemon Essential oil.   Did you know that even though lemon is acidic, when you ingest it becomes alkaline?

Dew Drop

Awesomeness came in the mail today.  A notice that you can get the Dew Drop Diffuser separate from the Premium Start kit.  So.......if you need one of these beauties, let me know!

The Premium Starter Kit really is the best way to get the diffuser........11 oils, the diffuser and more for about 50% off retail!

BUT, if you already have the kit and just want another diffuser for home, here you go!!  I really like this one because you can use just tap water with it instead of distilled water.
