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.

Getting rid of ticks with essential oils

howtouseessentialoils

Ticks, they ruin the summer day very easily! How to get rid of ticks, before you need to be pulling them out and worrying about lyme disease? My inspiration for this post came from my own midsummer festivities. We were in a beautiful place, that had high grass and low trees with leafs. Luckily nobody got a tick from our group, except our friends’ dog! Our neighbor’s little boy, who is the same age as my son, got a tick from his trip! There are a lot of ticks on the coast.

How do you repel the ticks with as little toxins as possible? I get chills of the idea of showering all those chemicals on to my little boy. And I don’t want those either. You will get a good tick repellent (works also well to other bugs) by mixing some carrier oil (for example olive, coconut and jojoba oil) to lemon, eucalyptus or peppermint oil. Just mix two drops to the carrier oil and rub it into your skin. If you want to make a mixture add 20 drops to a small bottle of oil. Remember to apply it to your skin often enough! I know people who take a little bit of essential oil to their hands and quickly wipe their legs and arms. For kids, seniors and people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to dilute the essential oils. Remember to cover your skin with clothing, especially when working in the bushes or kids playing there.

Good carrier oils for your essential oils

Are you ready for the world of essential oils?

When you have been testing out your essential oils, you might stop and wonder what would be the best carrier oil? People use different vegetable and nut oils as carrier oils that dilute the essential oils that are full of power. You should always dilute your essential oils to avoid skin irritation. Especially with kids, seniors and people with sensitive skin diluting is always recommended. I always dilute my essential oils on my skin, except maybe with mosquito bites (I’ll put a drop of tea tree oil on the bite). Skin absorbs the essential oils very effectively, so you don’t have to worry about diluting. You will get the benefit from your essential oils! Using carrier oils also gives you also an opportunity to get great benefits from the carrier oils.

Wheat germ oil 

There is a lot of vitamins B and E in a wheat germ oil. Vitamin E prevent skin cells from aging, so it goes together beautifully with frankincense oil that does wonders to the cells. In a massage you mix wheat germ oil 10% of your other carrier oil and add two drops of essential oils. Calming lavender is always great in skin care.

Avocado oil

Avocado has a lot of vitamins A, B and D in it that are all beneficial to the skin. Avocado oil has a strong sent, so you should mix it 5-10% of your other carrier oil. Just add two drops of your essential oils and your self-made avocado oil mixture is ready to work for you! Avocado oil is great for people who are allergic to wheat so they can’t use wheat germ oil.

Jojoba oil

My own favourite for the face! Jojoba oil is not really an oil, but a liquid wax, that is gained from  Simmondsia Schinensis seeds. Jojoba is amazing for the dry and atopic skin. It works so effectively! You should mix jojoba oil at the most 10% of your other carrier oil. Jojoba oil is great for long and dry hair. You can get a great oil treatment for your hair with just mixing jojoba oil to some other carrier oil and adding two drops of your favourite essential oils.

Grape seed oil

Grape seed oil absorbs very well to your skin. It is very clean and light. Grape sead oil is great for young and acne skin. Tea tree, lavender (calming) and lemon oils (if you want to cleanse) go together well with grape sead oil if you have the skin with impurities.

Almond oil

Almond oil is great for people with sensitive skin. People with sensitive skin can tolerate almond oil usually well. Almond oil is also great for aging and wrinkly skin. Sweet almond oil has vitamins A, B and little bit E. Almond oil also had fat acids in it.

Bath oil

You can use the same mixing ratio in bath oil as in massage oil. Three essential oils are recommended at the most in a bath at the same time to maximise the aromatic impact. If you would like to influence your mood, you can select essential oils based on that or thinking of your skin care for instance.
