As everyone knows by now, we are really getting into the swing of things with essential oils around here. I’ve been updating you about the progress with sleeping and emotions for Harper and Declan here on the blog and in my free Facebook group. While I own quite a few essential oils, I hadn’t taken much time to research blends, best ways to use, what jars to store them in, etc. And I figured if I was going to go through all that trouble, I should share what is working for us and what isn’t!
For the most part, we’ve seen some really good improvements. Is it an overnight cure? No, not really. But for a quick recap of my most recent update, click here.
Experimenting with oils, blends and rollers to find which ones work best for my kids has been so fun! I’ve been making roller bottles for everything under the sun, handing them out to family and friends to try and I am really enjoying it. It’s such a fantastic feeling knowing that I can make things in my own home that can hopefully provide relief and relaxation for other people.
When Infinity Jars reached out to me to see if I’d like a sample of their glass cosmetic bottles, I was pretty excited. If you’ve never heard of this great company, they make airtight, light proof, ultra violet glass bottles. They have so many different kinds – you can use them for essential oils, spices, homemade cosmetics, cooking oils, etc. If you know me well, you know how I feel about junky plastics or other products with chemicals and toxins that can leach into foods and personal care products so I am in LOVE with these gorgeous jars and bottles.
For essential oils, the best way to store them long term is in dark colored or amber bottles with glass that can withstand the occasional, accidental mishap. I love how thick and durable the Infinity Jars bottles and jars are. Also, did I mention we are moving to the beach in a couple weeks? I’ll DEFINITELY need these great, dark bottles to keep my oils safe from all the beautiful, beachy sunshine! 😉
Declan has various food sensitivities and sometimes he does get a few patches of very dry skin or eczema that pop up, especially in the winter. While most of this is controlled fairly well through his diet, I have a couple go to oils that I grab when I see him start to scratch his skin. There’s always improvement within a day or two.
Infinity Jars 50ml roller bottle is on the larger side, especially if you’re used to using the 10ml ones but I actually think it’s perfect for using essential oils on larger areas. If you’re making a smaller amount, they have rollers as small as 5ml as well!
In this recipe I’m using:
25 drops of frankincense oil
35 drops of lavender oil
Fill the rest with your choice of carrier oil. I love the Young Living V6 oil that comes in the pump bottle. So quick and easy to use, but fractionated coconut oil, jojoba, almond oil, etc would all be great choices as well. There are so many oils to choose from, and some really great blends to try.
Just fill it up, pop on the glass or stainless steel roller top and get to rolling! And I love knowing that the quality of my oils remains uncompromised in this beautiful dark violet bottle.
