I recently went to Sedona and experienced the magnificent red rock. Sedona is also known to be a mystical place where you can crystal shop and vortex hunt. When I went I took my Essential Oils with me for inspiration for a DIY project. Essential Oils and crystals go hand in hand.
Every day, when I turn on the hot water for my shower, I spray Eucalyptus Oil before I get in. I’ve been doing this for at least 2 years. It helps wake me up (stimulates mental activity) and clears my sinuses. It’s my morning ritual.
Lately, I’ve been interested in making my own Essential Oil sprays and now that the holidays are coming up I decided to get cracking on it!
I didn’t realize how simple it was, otherwise I would have been doing this already. I always thought it was a complicated concoction visualizing some kind of science project of perfect ingredients and mixing oils.
What you need: Glass bottles available at Sprouts or Wholefoods, your preferred essential oils (I use Goddess Garden), spring water, witch hazel, crystals (water soluble) and a funnel.
Pour the spring water through the funnel in the glass bottle and leave a tiny bit of room to add essential oils.
Add a quartz crystal or any water soluble crystal. When adding oils, be mindful on how strong you would like the spray and if you want to mix it with another oil. If I’m making it for someone else I try to also be aware of what their needs are. For instance, if I have a friend who is having trouble sleeping, I might make her a spray using Bedtime Story Blend. I love premade Essential Oil blends. Start with 5-10 drops.
For gift giving you can get a label puncher (hobby store) and recycle old cards to make tags for the bottles. Use twine to wrap them around the bottle and add a note on what kind of blend it is on the tag. You can also personalize it by saying, “sleep well, friend.”
You can also add your Essential Oils to an Aromatherapy Bracelet.
Aromatherapy Bracelets have porous lava rock to capture and carry the scent of the therapeutic essential oil. Just simply add your favorite Essential Oil and elevate your mood!
I love Essential Oils because they are natural, and you won’t find any chemicals or toxins in them like traditional fragrances. Chemicals don’t just show up in fragrance, they are in our sunscreens and food. Avobenzone is one of them you can find in many sunscreens. Not in Hawaii though! They recently banned any chemicals in sunscreens to protect the reefs. This goes into effect January 2021. So, its never too late to make the switch to mineral sunscreen and making your own Essential Oils sprays. Are you a mixer or do you like you Essential Oils alone?
