Essential oils for sore ankles


I twisted my ankle a couple of days ago, and it was painful, sore and swollen. The combination of helichrysum, cypress essential oils and Deep Blue Rub made a huge difference 24 hours later (especially helichrysum - it cut down the pain almost immediately), and now 48 hours later, my ankle was well enough that I could do a yoga practice.
So thankful for essential oils!

Tea tree essential oils for energetic boundaries

I've started to apply a drop of tea tree oil to my head and the soles of my feet daily to help with energetic boundaries.

Some other tips about tea tree below from Elena Brower:
"Literally every day I find a way to use Tea Tree. Especially supportive for skin, from bites to blemishes, Tea Tree is a must in every household; use it from head to toe. Test to see if you need to dilute if you have sensitive skin - most can use it neat (undiluted) for all of the above reasons.

Tonifying (strengthening) to the 'Guardian Qi,' Tea Tree is helpful every day... diffuse with Lemon and Peppermint when you've been out and about to support respiratory function and clear any energetic congestion.

Speaking of which - Tea Tree is also incredible for energetic boundaries - great for misting around your body before and after any tough interactions, or applied to inner wrists and elbow creases."

Immune gummies


I’m so thankful to have essential oils for our family so we have the best protection for our immune systems during this time!

When I think of boosting immune health, I immediately think of On Guard. These gummies are a great way to give your family some easy immune support and have fun making them at the same time.


⅓ c 100% pomegranate juice
3 tbsp raw honey
3 tbsp hot water soluble gelatin
3 drops Wild Orange oil
3 drops On Guard oil
Ice cube trays or silicone molds       
1.In a saucepan on low heat, whisk juice, gelatin, honey, and essential oils together until there are no lumps. The mixture should all be one consistency.
2.Pour mixture into an ice cube tray or silicone molds.
3.Place your immune gummies in the freezer for about 7-10 mins until they are set.
4.Serve, or place in your fridge to store.
*Tip: Because you are using natural ingredients, use gummies within a week for freshness.

DIY - hormonal acne mask


Do you break out when when your hormones are out of balance? I've noticed acne flare ups around my face and chin when my hormones ramp up.

The good news is, I've found two oils that have helped - Ylang Ylang and Lavender.

Ylang Ylang is known to be a hormone balancer. It has antiseptic and calming properties as well, it's perfect for hormonal breakouts.

Lavender is great for soothing the skin.

1 tbsp of bentonite clay (don’t let this
come in contact with metal)
1 tbsp aloe vera gel
1 tbsp distilled water
3 drops of Ylang Ylang
2 drops of Lavender

1.Stir all ingredients until smooth.
2.Use plastic measuring spoons to measure bentonite clay.
3.Smooth mask on your clean and slightly damp face. Allow to dry for 10-15 mins.
4.Once your skin feels cool and tight, rinse it off with a soft washcloth and warm water.
5.Follow with a light moisturizer.

Five powerful oils for the gut

1. Peppermint - cool and soothing for irregular movements

2. Cardamom - related to ginger for digestive enzymes

3. Clove - antimicrobial to help support healthy yeast levels

4. Tea tree - Natural threat destroyer to help overall gut health

5. Fennel - digestive aid

And my personal favourite: DigestZen (or ZenGest), which contains many of the oils mentioned above and supports healthy digestion and soothes the occasional upset stomach.
