Sis you know there are more than 700 species of eucalyptus and most of them are native to Australia? Aboriginals used the plants throughout history to support many body systems. It has also been used in traditional medicine in places like India, South Africa and China for centuries. An estimated 75% of Australian vegetation is eucalyptus. Can you Imagine how awesome that must smell?!!
Another interesting fact about the plant is that most species can survive over 250 years and in the right conditions, many live up to 500 years.
Eucalyptus Radiata is the one that’s most often used in aromatherapy. It’s stimulating, refreshing, scent is mild and sweet. It is found in the Thieves blend ( including all of the Thieves products) Breathe Again, RC, Raven, and SniffleEase. Do you see a pattern here? ????. Needless to say Eucalyptus Radiata is a great oil to have on hand during the blooming season. ????
Try adding a couple drops to the floor of a steamy hot shower. ???? You’ll be able to reap the benefits of a spa without ever leaving your own home.
190pv TEA TREE 15ml and YL glass spray bottle (actual bottle will look slightly different)
Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) might actually be the most well known essential oil out there.
???? Think back to before you started using essential oils…had you heard of Tea Tree, even if you didn’t really equate it with essential oils?
???? It has cleansing qualities, it’s great for skin, helps with booboos, and has a crisp, purifying scent. Tackle tough stains.
???? Make your own sink and shower scrub with 10 drops Tea Tree, 1 cup baking soda, and 1/4 cup dish soap. Do you have things that stink like towels after washing them? Spray them with a mixture of ½ cup water, ¼ cup witch hazel or rubbing alcohol, and 30 drops tea tree.
For goodness sake I am excited about getting a large bottle of clove!! Especially for this time of year! Did you know that clove is one of the oils in our beloved Thieves blend? Ya, so this one is sure to be great for some spring cleaning…. plus, did you know it’s one of my faves for the diffuser! �
Clove is said to encourage and promote healthy boundaries, helping a person feel empowered and encouraged to break patterns of victimization by honoring their own needs and speaking for themselves. Because of this, clove essential oil is useful for eating a person struggling with codependency or those that find that they are to dominating or often cross the boundaries of others. Clove can also help ease anxiousness, promoting self love and acceptance.

Lemon, sweet Lemon, let me count the ways I love you!! ????
???? Seasonal Issues
???? Immune Support
Lemon oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons.
Because it is so concentrated, lemon oil is so much higher in limonene than lemon juice. Limonene is actually what works as an antioxidant and cleansing agent! So add a couple (Vitality) drops to your water to get some added benefits in your day.
Did you know that lemon is also extremely amazing at removing Sharpie?! Yep. If you have little ones that like to show their artistic side more too often than most, this is going to be your genie in a bottle!
When lemon is diffused through the air it can help to lift your spirits and it naturally supports giving your energy levels a boost.
Adding a few drops of lemon to the Thieves Cleaner will also give a nice crisp scent and help keep things shiny!
Lemon is one of the most classic and versatile flavors that you can keep in your culinary essential oils kit. With a bright citrus taste, Lemon adds wonderful flavor and invigorates the senses. Add a drop or more to taste to marinades, dressings, beverages, baked goods, grilled fish, and other recipes for an added burst of flavor. Enhance and freshen the flavor of water with 1–2 drops of Lemon per 8-oz. glass.
I LOVE Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil! Young Living cinnamon bark essential oil is made from the bark, not the leaves. Here are a few more fun facts about Cinnamon Essential oil.
Did you know that Cinnamon was part of the Holy Anointing Oil of Moses that was given to him by God in Exodus? Yes, it contained Myrhh and Cassia essential oils (500 shekels or 12.5 lbs), Cinnamon essential oil (250 shekels), Calamus (250 shekels), and Olive Oil (1 hin or 1 gallon)!
Wow, that’s a lot of oil! Yes, almost 6 gallons worth by today standards. That should tell you something – the Hebrews used a ton of essential oils!
Did you know that Cinnamon was one of the ingredients found in “Four Thieves Vinegar” or “Marseilles Vinegar”? Thieves used it who robbed graves that worked in the spice industry in the 15th century!
Did you know that the original Coke contained cinnamon essential oil? Yes, it contained six oils – cinnamon, lemon, coriander, nutmeg, Neroli and orange essential oils!
So let’s come up with a few ways to use this awesome oil shall we?
???? My FAVE diffuser blend. It’s called “Donuts” ????
6 drops stress away
3 drops Cinnamon Bark
2 drops Orange
????DIY lip balm
1 tsp Shea butter
3 Tbsp grapeseed
1 Tbsp beeswax

???? Relaxing Foot Soak
Mix 1/3 cup Epsom Salts

I don’t know about you, but I love and use Purification all the time! Just the other day I had to put it in the diffuser because something dropped in the oven and was burning. Whew. It stunk up the whole house. An hour in the diffuser and the house was as good as new.
I love to put this in a spray bottle with some water and give it a good shake. Then I spray it on all the furniture. We have dogs and they are allowed on the furniture, so our couches start to smell like dogs quickly.
Purification has Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Lavandin, & Myrtle in it. It is a blend I like to use to keep the bugs from bugging us. Unfortunately, it is just about time for them to make their appearance…Spring is almost here in Kansas!
So, what you don’t know is that you are getting a 15mL bottle when you spend 400PV this month! Yup! A 15mL bottle!!
Thanks so much Christi Kirkpatrick!
This is such a gorgeous month as the flowers ???? start to bloom everywhere. Celebrating Easter ❤️ longer daylight hours ☀️
Have a safe and Happy Spring!
