Jennifer's Oily Update May 2016

Whats oily this month?

April Showers bring May flowers!! And with it comes ALLERGIES for some of us! Are you an allergy suffer?? Did you know your starter kit is your first defense when dealing with allergies?? Now that we are getting closer to summer the bugs will start coming out I have some ideas on how to use that citronella! If you don't have it the oil is still available but it does tend to go out of stock before the summer is here so don't wait!!

Allergy Relief

Peppermint, Lemon and Lavender are known to help with allergies. You can use it one of 3 ways. You can add 3 drops each to a diffuser and diffuse during the day and at night. You can put equal amounts into a roller bottle and add carrier oil. For every drop of oil add 2 drops carrier. So if you did 10 drops of each oil I recommend 60 drops of carrier oil for the 30 drops of oil. If you are using it on kids I would suggest diluting it more. You can also take this internally just like an allergy pill and take one pill every 3-4 hours or as needed.

All Natural Citronella Candle

This is really much easier than it looks!


What you need:

  • mason jar (mine is 12 ounces, next time I may go smaller)
  • smokeless candle wicks
  • wax adhesive to stick the wick to the bottom of the jar (I'm trying hot glue next time)
  • flaked soy wax



  • Young Living Citronella essential oil (I also added Eucalyptus and Lemon)

Prepare your jar by softening a small chunk of the wax adhesive to the bottom of the candle wick and sticking it to the bottom of the mason jar (i used a pencil to push it down because my hand was too big to fit in the jar). Wrap the excess wick around the pencil and balance it across the top of the jar, getting the wick to stand as straight as you can.

In a double boiler (or just a pot fitted on top of another pot with an inch or so of water in the bottom pot) melt soy wax 1 cup at a time. (I used about 4 cups of wax for a 12 ounce mason jar).



When the wax is fully melted, add 10 drops citronella per cup of wax, (optional) 5 drops eucalyptus and lemon per cup of wax. I ended up adding 40 citronella and 20 eucalyptus and lemon.

Carefully pour into the mason jar, taking care not to move the wick. Allow to sit undisturbed for 4-5 hours. Trim the wick to about 1/8th of an inch. Enjoy!

NingXia Red Juice--Have you tried it??

If you haven't tried a bottle don't wait! I swear this is what kept our family healthy this past cold/flu season. My kids only missed 1 day of school from feeling under the weather. They do not get the flu shot. The last time they all got the shot they had the full blown 7 day flu influenza A twice! All of them! This year they all felt icky once that they had to miss school and it only lasted 10-12 hours. The difference?? They drank 1-2 oz every day!! We still haven't had to go to the doctor for any illness in 18 months which is the same time we started using oils!!!
