Summer Oil Favorites!
Mosquitos are something I'm not a fan of, and of course summer means more of these and other pests. Most of us are familiar with citronella and its use to keep bugs away. YL's citronella essential oil is no different except for the awesome facts that it's pure, toxin free, and super effective! There are plenty of ways to use citronella essential oil, but the easiest is to simply put a drop or two in your hand along with a drop or two of carrier oil and rub it wherever desired (arms/legs etc.) You can also put 10 drops, a pinch of salt, and water into a 4oz spray bottle and apply before going outside. Diffuse citronella to keep your home smelling fresh and bugs away. Add 10 drops of purification essential oil for extra umph! Easy!
With summer here, a lot of us may be traveling more, which means more places for germs and bacteria- No bueno! But no worries- Thieves spray (which smells like Christmas!) is here to help purify those surfaces and even your hands in a natural toxin free way! I love taking this in my purse with me and spraying down toilet seats, keyboards at work, plane seats and food trays, and really anything I feel is gross and covered in germs and bacteria. It's a must have!
I can't say enough good things about this roll on! If you're anything like me and pollen is not your friend then Breath Again may be your best friend. I use this in the morning if my nose is stopped up and itchy. A quick roll under my nose, on my neck and on my chest a couple of times a day and it makes a world of difference! Bonus: My co-workers started asking what smelled so good-- it was none other than this little beauty :) Currently, a no brainer favorite of my mine.
