Plant Therapy Giveaway and how I use essential oils

So as I promised (though not as quick as I had intended)  I am going to give away some essential oils that I use often in my home.  I know you’ll be just as pleased as I am using them in yours.

So what can you use essential oils for?  Well, a lot of things I am just going to give a few examples here as to what I do.  And then down the post a bit I am going to give you “recipes” in hopes that you will be able to use essential oils to your benefit in your home.  I use lavender, orange, or lemon essential oils to sent my dryer balls (a later post in detail about these).  I use thieves oil in a variety of homemade  cleaners that I make.  I use peppermint, ylang ylang, tea tree, lavender or orange oils in the “shampoo” and “conditioner” I use.  I frequently use thieves oil and coconut oil as my “toothpaste”.  I’ve used the immune blend in castile soap to make a natural antibacterial hand soap.  Isabella made lip balm for Christmas gifts using peppermint or lemon oil to flavor it.  I’ve used lemon, rosemary, and lavender to make deodorant.   These are just a few of the uses that I have come up with and will share with you in using essential oils in your home.

To use oils to scent your dryer balls I take and either drop 10-15 drops on the ball and then put in a ziplock bag and let sit for 24 hrs or I take a dropper and “poke-stuff” it into the middle of the ball (it lasts longer this way) and put the oil there.

I like very simple cleaners that I know what is in them so a lot of the time I just use vinegar and water and add thieves or another oil to it since my husband HATES the smell of vinegar 🙂  I’ve also found a cleaner that I buy from Green Virgin (in a co-op buy in case any one is interested we can get it much cheaper than price on the site) it’s totally non toxic but doesn’t have a “smell”  so I add essential oils to it usually it thieves to help fight germies 🙂

The “shampoo” and “conditioner” are very basic.  It’s not really shampoo or conditioner as one would think.  I use  1 part baking soda with 3 parts water with added oil 10-15 drops of your choice I like peppermint into the mixture and shampoo your hair.   Mix 1 part white or apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. To minimize the vinegar smell, I also add lavender, peppermint, and/or rosemary to the vinegar mixture again 10-15 drops. I like to mix a big batch of this ahead of time and keep it in a squeeze bottle in the shower.  I keep a bottle of the “conditioner” mixed up as well to use on the girls hair as a detangler.

To use thieves as a toothpaste I simply put a small bit of coconut oil and a drop of oil and brush away.  (yes it burns a bit but my mouth feels so good)

To make the hand soap you just use castile soap and oil of your choice mix it up and place in dispenser it’s as simple as that 🙂

And there are plenty of lip balm and deo recipes out there for you to find that I won’t blog about “my recipe” because I just used the ones I found. If you are interested I’ll be glad to share them but I think that Plant Therapy  has some recipes listed on their facebook page. 

Please remember this is not medical advice or any other advice.  Please prayerfully consider the use of these oils and anything else that you use in your home.  This is what I have found works for MY family and I pray that you will find my suggestions helpful.

Plant therapy review and upcoming giveaway

14set

I was very fortunate to find Plant Therapy Essential oils and upon contacting them was offered to be able to review their oils and in turn do a giveaway.  I have been very pleased with the quality of their oils and have since purchased a number of them.

Their germ fighter is a budget friendly alternative to the well known Thieves.  We have diffused in our house and it has thankfully kept our children from passing snotty noses around (and any one with more than one child knows how easily and quickly they share that when they won’t share anything else 🙂 )

I also like their peppermint which I have been using in the homemade shampoo I make.  It is ORGANIC and a very nice price which makes it very affordable for someone who has five children to make shampoo for.

Everyone knows that I am a bargain shopper, however, they also know that I want the BEST quality for my money and that I won’t just buy something because it’s cheaper.  SO that is why I started researching essential oils.  I wanted the best product for the best price.  That is how I found Plant Therapy and they haven’t let me down. I have purchased many other oils including frankincense, deodorizer, and respir-aid (which my hubby loves).  I have also purchased one of their diffusers.  I also want to do business with a company that has GREAT customer service.  And I have had to deal with Plant Therapy’s customer service and they have been nothing but helpful and wonderful.

LOOK for you CHANCE TO win on the next post here at blessednaturalnook 🙂

Please check out their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/planttherapy. There you will find giveaways and great discounts weekly!  Or if you are interested you can contact me for ordering details as I am now “selling” their products as Lendley’s Natural Nook and offer a monthly or bimonthly buy on Frugal Family Southern Middle TN.

THIS IS NOT a MULTI LEVEL marketing business.  YOU CAN NOT sign up to sale their products without a business license so there is NO pressure or obligation to buy monthly or join to get the prices that I offer.  I just sale them because I am happy with them and I want others locally to have to opportunity to buy them and enjoy them as well.

A word from Plant Therapy:

“Because we believe in the power of essential oils, and know of their incredible benefits, we want them to be used in as many households as possible. Plant Therapy was founded with one goal in mind… we want to provide the highest quality essential oils (and accessories) at a price that everyone can afford. Plant Therapy provides oils that are 100% pure, undiluted and therapeutic grade. We source each oil from top suppliers around the world, buy in large volume, and negotiate the best prices possible. We then pass those savings on to you, the consumer!”

Disclaimer: I did receive the set to review for free but was not compensated for my review in any other way.   please remember I am NOT a doctor nor do I play one on TV. Please do your own research on any medicine, herb, essential oil or other remedy you choose to use for yourself or your family. I prayerfully consider each “remedy” I use on my family and encourage you to do the same
