Temair’s Essential Oil tip of the day

 

Since I am on this essential oil14700997_10153945864572548_4755539220603103531_os kick¬†lately and learning all the ways to make the oils part of my daily life I am now going to do a little tip or recipe of the day ūüôā

Today’s tip is a simple one. I woke up a bit stuffy this morning and with cold and flu season on I just thought of this idea and it works great.

In the mornings if you wake up stuffed up in the nose or chest. And especially if its a chilly morning.

Take your favorite house coat or throw blanket whatever is your comfy item you use in the mornings or evenings to stay cozy.

Take a wash cloth, get it wet and put 4 drops of Eucalyptus oil on the cloth and put it in the dryer with your clothing item for about ten minutes. Brew your coffee or tea, dance around the kitchen to keep warm. Then DING put that warm comfy breath easier house coat on, sit back drink your tea or coffee take ten mins to yourself to wake up, breathe the Eucalyptus in deeply. Then get ready for your day hopefully feeling a little more clear in the nose and refreshed.

Then on days you don’t have to go anywhere, Netflix¬†hang out snuggle days do the same thing with Lavender¬†oil. mmm mmm

Anjou Luxury Essential Oils

I received Anjou Essential Oil Gift set this week complimentary for review. All opinions in this review are my own and always will be my own.

Anjou Essential Oils Gift Kit is an excellent starter set of six o14700997_10153945864572548_4755539220603103531_oil in all the primary scents.

Great for people starting out in the lifestyle of essential oils. Essential oils have many uses from aromatherapy to skincare to home decor. I use the oils for many reasons, I am new to the world of essential oils and this is the perfect starter kit for me. I was needing the primary oils, primary oils are the basic scents needed for a great collection.

 

 

The oils are 100% Pure and Natural. With no fillers or additives.

Certified 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil

This set comes with six 10ml bottles of:

  • Lavender Oil
  • Sweet Orange Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Eucalyptus Oil
  • Lemongrass Oil
  • Peppermint Oil

All essential oils must be diluted in a carrier oil (such as coconut oil, aragon, sweet almond and avocado oil) there are lots of variety of carrier oils out there to choose from. Personally, I use Coconut oil as a carrier or I put the oil in my diffuser which I use daily in the house. Each day I change out the oil for a fresh new scent making my house smell lovely.

I add a few drops of Lavender to my pillow and my husband’s pillows, which relaxes both of us and is excellent to help you fall asleep. The past few mornings my husband has been telling me about how he had such a great sleep the night before.

There are many books and information online about how to use Essential oils and their benefits. I have taken up the topic with a strong passion a very fun hobby to do. Skincare is my biggest interest right now. With this set from Anjou I can experiment for days.

The set comes in a nice strong box with a pull out tray that holds the oils in. Very nice piece to display in your home decor. And each bottle tells you the country of origin of each oil which I found interesting.

With Christmas around the corner, this would make a great gift for an oil lover or an excellent housewarming gift. When you purchase a set you can also receive their Essential Oils guide for free which is extremely helpful.

I look forward to trying many more of Anjou’s amazing products!

DIY Time to revive and renew that summer skin

Summer is coming to an end and it’s now time to revive and refresh that sun damage on your face. Not matter how much sunscreen you used over the summer you will have damage. Tho sunscreen should be used all year round even on rainy days. Our ozone is so fragile and weak now that you are prone to melanoma anytime anywhere. The damage from the sun’s rays causes premature aging and sun spots that sometimes will never go away.

Once a week I make up a mixture of dried ground orange peels and coconut oil. Take the orange peels let them dry a couple days on a waxed cookie sheet in the regular air. Then grind them up into a fine powder with a coffee grinder,blender or food processor. I like to mix them into pure organic virgin coconut oil that is cooled in the fridge. Mix them well, measurements don’t¬†matter really just to your own desired consistency.

Once in a while, I will throw in some honey as well along with a teaspoon of Sandalwood powder if you have some. Sandalwood powder has bleaching properties as well and is very good for your skin.

Once the mixture is done I put it back in the fridge for a few hours for the coconut oil to harden up a bit. Otherwise, it will just run down your face and make a bit of a mess, you don’t¬†want to get it on your good clothes or it will be really hard to remove. Once the mixture is nice and cool and hardened up I pin my hair up and wrap a towel around my neck and shoulders. Lather all over your face avoiding your eyes. It will feel refreshing and cool on your skin and smells lovely. Oranges have a bleaching effect on the skin and gently removes sun damage while the vitamin C soaks right into your skin and the coconut oil moisturizes. A wonderful at-home spa treatment that is very cheap to do. Even some nights I will go to bed with it on my face and let it sit overnight while I’m all wrapped up in towels. It feels like absolute heaven. Next morning I wipe all the mixture off with the towels I used overnight and my face shiny, glowing and fully moisturized!

On days where I am in a hurry I peel an orange and wipe the white inside skin all over my face for a refresher of vitamin C it tightens your pores and makes your face very clean and healthy.  Give it a try, if you have sun damage I suggest doing this over a period of a couple months once or twice a week.
