Essential Family Fun!

What better time, than family time? With summer days and travel among us these next couple months, many of us will be surrounding ourselves with family members! I wanted to share just a couple little oily tips from my family to yours, about how we like to use our oils when we are going out for a day of fun! Let's be honest, there are a BUNCH of essential oils you could bring along with you for a day of fun, but less is more right? (Especially when you are applying! haha) Take a look what stays in my bag or backpack when we go on an adventure!  

ON GUARD

I like to put a drop of this on each of our feet to help support our immune systems, being around so many other bodies. I also have a small spray bottle, for our hands for this same reason. This blend also protects against environmental threats and purifies the skin while promoting healthy circulation. On Guard also:

• Supports healthy immune function

• Cleans surfaces

• Energizing, uplifting aroma

 

LAVENDER

I bring this with me everytime we leave the house, because my son asks for it by name. This oil is soothing for him when he is upset, and calms his emotions when he gets an owie. Lavender is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities and it also soothes occasional skin irritations. Lavender also:

• Helps skin recover quickly

• Eases muscle tension

 

BALANCE

That Crazy Oil Husband is a big fan of this blend. Not only does it have a wonderfully soothing aroma, but it also helps support our emotions, when we are feeling scattered or overwhelmed. This blend brings harmony to the mind and body and also soothes sore muscles and joints. The Grounding Blend also:

• Creates a sense of calm and well-being

• Promotes whole-body relaxation

•Evokes feelings of tranquility and balance

• Promotes circulation

• Supports cellular health and overall well-being

• Lessens stress and helps with anxious feelings and nerves

 

LEMON

I bring lemon with me everywhere. I love putting it in my water. When we go out to eat, I put it in my water. If we are out and about for the day, say at the Zoo, I put it in my stainless or glass waterbottle, and bring my oil with me for my refill once I've finished that! Lemon naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion, and promotes a positive mood and cognitive ability. Lemon also:

• Cleanses and purifies the air and surfaces

• Supports healthy respiratory function

• Helps ward off free radicals with its antioxidant benefits

• Soothes an irritated throat

 

FRANKINCENSE

We love frankincense. Wherever we go, we bring good ol' Frank along with us. He's a big part of the family! Frankincense helps us build and maintain a healthy immune system and it promotes feelings of peace, relaxation, satisfaction, and overall wellness. Frankincense also:

• Promotes cellular health

• Reduces the appearance of blemishes and rejuvenates skin

• Supports healthy immune system function

 

TERRASHIELD

If we are going on a hike, or anywhere remotely green (which is almost always) I definitely bring the repellent blend with me. Because this blend has oils in it that bugs aren't a fan of, it makes a great addition in your mini arsenal! The Repellent Blend also:

• Acts as an effective, natural repellent

• Helps ward off insects

I do bring other oils with me on occasion, but these come with us everywhere! Whether we are making a quick trip to the grocery store, playing around at the park, or heading out for a full day of fun at the zoo, I make sure my family has what they need to support their bodies!
