Great For Colds

This recipe I use with my family and I have to say it is my favorite! It always helps me and my two boys sleep well at night. I put it on the bed sheets or use my diffuser to inhale the vapor. You will only need to use 1-2 drops per oil. These three essential oils have a way of making you relaxed, happy, and stimulated. When using all three of these oils together, you are forming a blend.

 1.  Peppermint

2.  Lavender

 3.  Lemon

Don’t Let It Go To Your Head

This is again one of those very helpful and useful blends. I get headaches and use this blend to control the pain. There are many types of headaches and I would say, try it you don’t have anything to lose! What you want to do is put a few drops of each oil in a carrier oil and apply to your temples, forehead, back of neck, and feet. This should have you feeling good as new!

1. Peppermint 2 drops

2. Lavender 5 drops

3. Rosemary 4 drops

4. Frankincense 4 drops

5. Roman Chamomile 3 drops

My Aching Back

Think it is safe to say, most people in the world experience back pain. I’m I right? Please let me know your thoughts, if you care to share. Essential oils can help in this area. You can use essential oils in sea salt scrubs or in a carrier oil to relieve your back pains. Combine 5 to 10 drops of each essential oil

1. Peppermint

2. Rosemary

3. Basil

Figuring Type of Essential Oil

All essential oils have an odor intensity, some will be very strong and others will be faint.

They also have a note type. I will do a list for you below:

  • Peppermint (Minty & Intense) = 5 Middle Note (50-80% blend)
  • Lavender (Floral & Sweet) = 2 Middle Note (50-80% blend)
  • Orange (Fresh & Fruity) = 1 Top Note (5-20% blend)
  • Basil (Spicy & Lively) = 4 Top to Middle Note (20-80% blend)
  • Frankincense (Rich & Balsamic) = 3 Base Note (5-20% blend)
  • Clary Sage (Sharp & Spicy) = 3 Middle to Base Note (20-80% blend)
  • Melaleuca (Medicinal & Woody) = 3 Middle Note (50-80% blend)

Note: The number stands for the intensity of the essential oil. I also want to thank Modern Essentials for my research.


Okay everyone, Essential oils can come from my different sources. For example, Lavender comes from a flower. It is a beautiful purple flower found in France. Essential oils can help you in many ways. If we stay with our example, Lavender can help with Headaches, Allergies, Depression, etc. When you add more than one oil together you get what is called a blend of essential oils. Essential oils also have a note type and odor intensity. The world of essential oils is a fascinating one.

If you have a question, please leave me a comment. I am here to help.
