Holly's Oily Update

April 2016

What's Oily this month?

I LOVE a good detox bath!

I will admit I was resistant at first, who has the time to soak in a tub? I promise you they are worth it! Now, I recommend them all the time!

Everyone around you sick? Detox bath with thieves

Feeling stuffy? Detox bath with RC
Work/Family making you want to pull your hair out? Detox bath with Stress Away

Allergies acting up? Detox bath with Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint
Sore back or muscles? Detox bath with Panaway and Peppermint
Munchkin won't settle down for bedtime? Detox bath with Lavender

Too many martinis last night? Detox bath with Lemon
Upset/Bloated tummy? Detox bath with DiGize and Peppermint

According to Allure magazine, even Gwyneth Paltrow loves a detox bath with her Young Living oils!

Mix 1.5 cups of Epsom salt with 1/2 cup baking soda. Add 7-10 drops of your favorite Young Living essential oil. Add to running water (as warm as you can take it). Allow the salt to completely dissolve before sliding in. Soak for 20 minutes, and kick up your water intake to help rid your body of toxins.

Thieves Soft Scrub

Typically I can use my Thieves Household Cleaner to clean most everything, but sometimes I need a little more "muscle." So in those instances, I use my Homemade Thieves "Soft Scrub". I use it on soap scum, to clean tile grout, to remove pesky stains on the stove top. It is gentle but tough enough -- you could really use it on just about anything. Give it a shot. It's so easy to make, and this recipe will last you a while.

  • 3 cups Baking Soda
  • 3/4 cup Thieves Household Cleaner
  • 1 Tbsp Distilled Vinegar
  • 30 drops Young Living Lemon Essential oil


  1. In a large glass bowl, add your Thieves cleaner, vinegar and Lemon essential oil.
  2. Then slowly add your baking soda, stirring to combine.
  3. Once completely mixed through, transfer to your desired container. I recycled my old honey jar. It fit perfectly. You could even use an old soap dish bottle. (However you may need to add a bit of water to thin it enough to squirt through the top)
  4. Use wherever a little more scrubbing action is needed

Thieves Wipes

I made a Thieves wipes container for each of our bathrooms! It is great for quick clean-ups and wiping down the tooth paste explosion that occurs daily in the kids' bathroom. Economical and free from the yucky chemicals in Clorox wipes.

** a little tip** separate the filters a bit before you add them to your mixture. I flip them backwards and thumb through them so they are easier to get out one or two at a time.

Make your own bug spray

Those pesky bugs will be here soon. Making your own bug spray is simple and does not leave sticky feeling of traditional bug spray. It's also chemical free. Citronella is key! It does tend to go out of stock during the summer so I am a grabbing a couple of extra bottles now. Recipe is in the picture below.
