1. Summer oil: Tea tree oil

The natives of Australia already found the benefits of tea tree. They would breath in the purifying scent in the morning. They also used the leaves to cool down their skin. Now the health benefits of tea tree have spread around the world. Tea tree also boosts the immune system.

I use tea tree oil (doTerra’s Meleleuca) during summer time for any skin irritations. I use it for small cuts, bug bites and sun irritation for me and my three year old. I have ready made blend of tea tree oil and coconut oil in my bag. You can mix two drops of tea tree essential oil to any carrier oil. doTerra carries ready made roller bottles of tea tree and coconut oil that are super handy on the go (“Touch” line).

melaleuca

Tea tree oil helps to clear oily and sweaty skin. You can add two drops to your skin care product and make up remover (don’t use coconut oil to oily or acne skin).

Tea tree oil can be used for cuticles (hand and feet). It helps to cure athlete’s foot and nail fungus. You can add a drop to your shampoo to make your hair healthier and stronger.

doTerra’s elefant diffuser helps to get a 3 year old to fall a sleep (video) :-)

Hello everybody!

Happy beginnig summer time! I decided to start the season with this funny clip I took. My three year old doesn’t like to fall a sleep in his own bed, so I thought I would try doTerra’s elefant diffuser. I use doTerra’s Lavender and Geranium for falling a sleep.

New flu recipe with essential oils

Hello!!

Just when I thought that the flu season was over and getting rid of my hay fever, I got the worst flu and my throat was really bad. I had also horrible ear ache, even though my ear was complitely healthy. My doctor forgot to give me any meds, but not to worry I had some of my own! I used doTerra’s Breath essential oil blend in my diffuser, that has peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon and melaleuca in it. Internally I used (and still use until I’m 100%) doTerra’s Onguard capsules, that improve immune defence.

For the skin, I found this great recipe (you can mix all of these things into a 10 ml glass roller bottle):

  • 1 drop of doTerra’s Frankincense oil
  • 1 drop of doTerra’s Oregano oil
  • 2 drops of doTerra’s Onguard oil
  • 2 drops of doTerra’s Melaleuca oil (tea tree oil)

Mix fractionated coconut oil to the rest of the bottle or some other carrier oil.

DoTerra’s anti age oils and Immortelle

Happy spring time!!!

The beautiful sunlight has captivated my attention and I am waiting for more! I wanted to continue little bit with the skin care theme from last time’s DoTerra’s night creme review. If you want to try my anti age essential oil recipe, you can find it from my last blog post.

DIY anti age essential oil blend

I noticed after I turned 30 that my thin and dry skin had started to get fine lines. When I started using essential oils I found frankincense to be a wonderful product for my skin. Frankincense is also very expensive product, so I only use it for my face one drop at a time. Frankincense supports healthy cells.

doTerra’s Immortelle oil blend

I thought first that I’m not going to buy doTerra’s Immortelle, because it is pricy and I had my Frankincense. After I had collected some points from doTerra I figured I might as well just give it a go. It has the “king oil” Frankincense, Hawaiian sandal wood, lavender and rose essential oil in it. The roller bottle is very easy to use after my night cream. I wrote about doTerra’s night creams in this blog.

DIY “Immortelle”

All good things have to come to and end and so did my doTerra’s Immortelle. Sad face! I decided to go ahead and make my own blend to the same 10 ml roller bottle:

  • 30 drops of doTerra’s Frankincense
  • 30 drops of doTerra’s Ylang Ylang
  • 30 drops of doTerra’s Lavender
  • 30 drops of doTerra’s Geranium

The idea is not to put it all over your face, but just few drops somewhere. I have very sensitive skin, so I should have maybe put little bit less of the oils and added some doTerra’s fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil in the bottle. Once I use more of it, I will add more coconut oil in it. DoTerra’s fractionated coconut oil stays in liquid form in all temperatures. If you suffer from acne or spots in your face, coconut oil is not the best option for you. It might block your pores.

Review of doTerra’s face creams and facial cleansers

Hello everybody!

I tried to post my English video yesterday, just like my Finnish one, but due to technical difficulties I was not able to do it. Anyway, I thought I would review today doTerra’s facial products and talk how to replace them with oils if you don’t want yet another product on your shelves. I made a blog about this last week, if you want to check the details.

Review of doTerra’s skin care

Happy February everybody!!

I thought I would compare two of doTerra’s face creams and two of their face cleansers today. I am going to review: Verage Moisturizer, Hydrating Cream, Facial Cleanser and HD Clear Foaming Face Wash.

Face creams

doTerra’s Verage Moisturizer

I have used doTerra’s Verage Moisturizer daily for a long time now. It is a pump bottle, where two pumps a day go for a long way. It is a light cream that doesn’t leave skin sticky at all. It has Juniper berry, Geranium, Jasmin and Sea Buckthorn berry oil in it. It’s been designed to nourish and moisturize skin, so that the wrinkles don’t show as much. All the skin types can use it, but I think it’s perfect for acne and mixed skin types, because of its lightness.

I have dry skin and during summer time Verage Moisturizer works great. At the winter time I noticed that I could do with more hydration. I feel like you can replace the face cream with coconut oil that has a drop of jasmine and geranium essential oil in it, especially if you don’t have acne skin. Coconut oil is very bad for acne skin! Essential oils can have a strong sent for some people, so Verage Moisturizer can be a good option then. Verage Moisturizer doesn’t really have a sent.

doTerra’s Hydrating cream

Very creamy!! DoTerra’s hydrating cream has butter from cocoa seeds and jasmin flower oil. It doesn’t really have a sent at all, so it’s good for people who prefer that. Even for my dry winter skin, it seemed very creamy, but it wasn’t sticky at all! That made me very happy, because I don’t like that feeling! I am definitely going to repurchase for next winter, but I’m afraid that it will be too creamy for the summer! For atopic eczema it might be good even during summer! If you don’t have dry skin at all, Verage Moisturizer is better way to go.

Facial Cleansers

doTerra’s Facial Cleanser

Strong cleanser! It has peppermint and tea tree oil in it. Those essential oils cleanse very naturally and leave skin feeling fresh. I really recommend this cleanser for acne and mixed skin. It’s also probably good for people who like to wear a lot of make up. Cleanser has a sent of peppermint and tea tree oil. I have a sensitive skin and I don’t use a lot of make up. For me it was a bit too strong. Maybe during very warm months it might be ok.

doTerra’s HD Clear Foaming Face Wash

It’s a smaller size pump bottle. With one pump and water I am able to wash my face. My sensitive skin really likes it. It doesn’t have much of a sent at all and it works great. The HD Clear Foaming Face wash has tea tree, eucalyptus and geranium oil in it. Those essential oils have cleansing properties.

Replacing cleansers and moisturizers

You can replace facial cleansers all together with f.e coconut oil. You can mix a drop of tea tree oil in it and then wash it off. I know people who take their eye make up off with coconut oil (don’t mix essential oils with that!). I don’t recommend this to people with acne skin, so you don’t clog your pores! You can easily limit the amount of bottles you need, by using coconut oil as moisturizer and cleanser. You can even mix your essential oils in already at home. My eyes don’t like oily eye make up removers, so I have to use different sensitive products for that.

doTerra’s elefant diffuser (review)

Hi There!!

I wanted to make a quick review of the doTerra’s diffuser for children. It is a regular diffuser that has some added things for little kids. There are some lights and sounds (from the video you can see them better). If you are interested of the diffuser or want to see the review in written form go here.

Review of doTerra’s elefant diffuser

Happy New Year 2019!!I saw a while ago doTerra’s elephant diffuser. I have a three-year-old at home, so I thought that it would be perfect for his room. I wasn’t able to order it to Europe until Christmas. I will review it here.

Christmas products and promo items

Plusses:

  • Cute appearance! It looks perfect for a kid’s room
  • Few sounds (waves, birds and lullaby). Sounds are little bit mechanic.
  • Diffuser works as well as regular one

Minuses:

  • Stars lights in the sky could be bigger
  • filling water is little trickier than normally. You need to put the water through the elephant’s trunk (it’s probably because all of the extra mechanics in the diffuser).
  • You will get USB cord with the diffuser, but you need your own plug pin if you want to use it with a socket. I need to borrow my phone chargers plug pins at the moment.

Why do I need a diffuser?

  • Essential oils work wonderfully diffused. I use a diffuser if we are sick or getting sick, I need to uplift moods or calm them. 5-15 minutes is enough time.

doTerra doesn’t carry elephant diffuser permanently. It is being sold at the moment. The price is around 70e. Order elephant diffuser: sanna.tiisanoja@gmail.com

Healthy apple cinnamon chips (recipe)

I bought yesterday the most delicious apples and thought of this wonderful healthy recipe.

All you need is:

Christmas apples, Cinnamon bark essential oil and sugar.

  1. Preheat oven to 100 degrees celsius or 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix one table-spoon of sugar and 2 drops of doTerra’s Cinnamon bark oil (if you use another brand, just make sure you can use them internally)
  3. Chop 8 apples to very thin slices
  4. Put chopped apples over a baking sheet
  5. Sprinkle the sugar&oil mixture over the apples
  6. The baking time depends a lot on your oven and how thick the slices are. After 20 minutes you can turn the apples. The apples start to curl when they are ready.
  7. Eat the apples when they have cooled off and are crispy
