Essential Oils Make & Take

You all know we are obsessed with essential oils over here & it has been so fun connecting with so many of you who love the as well! I wanted to share a fun little make & take gathering we had over the weekend, it was fun dusting off the chalkboard again & I can’t wait to put it to good use this holiday season! I had a few of my favorite girls over & we made a bunch of goodies to take home and share with friends & family. We did it over nap time so the little girls were sleeping, but Harper seriously had the best afternoon helping me host the party. It reminded me of when I was little and my mom used to have Home Interiors parties (does anyone else remember these?!) I loved getting to stay up late with all of my moms friends, eating cheese & crackers and watching some lady velcro brass wall sconces to a piece of fabric board! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So here is what we made, three of my very favorite combos that we use daily in our house!
Thieves Roller // One of the main reasons I started using essential oils was for immune support. If you have toddlers in school or are pregnant and feeling like your immune system just can’t hang, this is for you. Thieves is a blend of Clove, Cinnamon, Lemon, Eucalyptus & Rosemary essential oils, I add 10 drops to a roller ball & top it off with a carrier oil. We roll this on the bottoms of our feet during the back to school & winter months!
Linen Spray // Sleep wouldn’t exist around here if it weren’t for oils, another one of the reasons why I started using them & can’t live without them. We did 10 drops of Lavender + 10 drops of Cedar wood in a glass spray bottle & topped it off with distilled water. Amazing for misting onto sheets, pillows or pajamas before bed! I also add these oils to all of our diffusers at bed time each night which has been a total game changer!

Keep Calm Roller // For the frazzled mama during witching hour (or any hour), who just can’t relax because your kids are bananas and your brain never shuts off.  This roller is AHH-MAZING. Made of one of my favorite oils ever Peace & Calming, along with Orange, Joy & Ylang Ylang. 10 Drops of each & topped off with a carrier oil, roll on wrists, over your heart or behind your ears. I try not to leave home without this one.

Here are the supplies that I used, the oils are all Young Living (you can get a starter kit here if you want to dive in). The wood crate is from a local shop, here is a similar one from H&M. We also used these Amber Glass Bottles, Glass Roller Balls & my favorite Fractionated Coconut Oil.

I can’t wait to do this again, hopefully a holiday themed one or something after the new year! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you’ve been interested in oils, come follow us over on my @grapefruitandgold Instagram, we would love to have you!

    Hi Jessica! Would you consider selling your blends/etc.? I am interested in a Keep Calm roller, if that's a possibility!

    I just started getting into essential oils (mostly to use for cleaning and beauty). I will have to give some of your "recipes" a try!

    My mother has these essential oils as well. She's helped me out some when I've been feeling sick. They are pretty awesome! I spray lavender on my pillows; it just wins at knocking me out for a good sleep.

    Does your bottle of fractionated coconut oil leak? I've tried a few different brands and they leak all over my counter, so I'm still searching for one that doesn't leak or at least not as much as my current one!

    Thank you so much for this post! I have been wanting to try oils and have been intimidated, but I've bought the supplies for all of these except the Keep Calm (seriously, would you sell those???) and I can't wait to try!
