How To Organize Essential Oils!

essential oil organization

Hello Loves! Today I decided to share how I organize my essential oils for my working desk!

I have a fairly large collection of oils and not alot of space to store them.

 So here is what I came up with!

essential oil organization, essential oil collection

I store all of my essential oils on my working desk in these wooden Ikea drawers that came in a small storage dresser.

I find its easier to just leave the drawers themselves on my desk so I can grab what I need easily.

Now onto how I manage to find the oil I need without having to pick each one up and hope that I grab the essential oil I was looking for.

As You an see when looking at my oils from above they are all numbered. What I have done instead of writing all the names of the oils on top is I have created an essential oil index in my creation binder.

Each oil has a number and it can be easily searched for in the index and located in the box. All  of the oils in the box are organised by number in order.

Why I like my index so much better than writing down the names on all of the labels is it firstly can be difficult to fit the names of the essential oils on the labels. But most importantly I also like the Idea Of having my essential oils filed and written out on paper that way I can easily assess which oils I have and which I need or desire.

Here is how the index works!

Essential oils fall into different categories in nature. There are Flowers, Trees, Woods,Roots, and Grasses.

So my index contains all of my essential oils organized by category. I have all the flowers on one page and the trees on another.

This process is so easy it takes literally two seconds to open my binder and find the number of the essential oil I wish to use.

Here is a video demonstration and a walk through of my organization in further detail!

Hope you all really enjoyed this post and found it helpful 🙂

Wishing you all beauty and bliss!

how to make toothpaste, teeth whitening, diy toothpaste, all natural toothpaste, toothpaste recipe, baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste, essential oils and oral care

Now you get to control the quality of the ingredients you put into your mouth leading  to a happier smile!

Most Toothpaste manufaturers  put cheap ineffective and HARMFUL chemicals  into their products ranging from synthetic alcohols, FD&C blue dye, Sodium lauryl sulfate, Fluoride and much much more!

Ever Wonder Why They Say “Could Be harmful If swallowed?” Id say thats a pretty good indication you should not be putting it into your mouth period!

Alright enough of the scary lets get started on our potent homemade toothpaste!

how to make toothpaste, teeth whitening, diy toothpaste, all natural toothpaste, toothpaste recipe, baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste, essential oils and oral care

Here Is A List Of Our Potent Ingredients & Why We Will Be Using Them!

Coconut oil: The base of our toothpaste! This will help give your product texture! Coconut oil also has many benefits to your oral health. Its antibacterial properties are great for fighting plaque but its also known for healing gum tissue!

Baking Soda: Now here is how your gonna get those pearly whites!

Baking soda is often used as a natural teeth whitener. It is known for removing stains.

*There is a myth that baking soda is to harsh for everyday use. Let me just clear something up, it is PERFECTLY safe for everyday use and it WILL NOT cause harm to your enamel so long as you have healthy alkaline saliva WHICH by the way baking soda helps maintain the alkaline ph balance to your saliva every time you use it!

Essential Oils: This is whats going to make your mouth feel minty fresh! Only instead of using menthol as all tooth paste manufatureres do we are using the real deal! Peppermint and cinnamon essential oils are my favorites for toothpaste. Peppermint for freshness and its anti inflamitory properties and cinnamon for its highly anti microbial properties!

Fun Fact: Essential oils are all anti bacterial, anti fungal, and anti viral. They are also able to penetrate through your gums to promote healing!

Salt: PLEASE do not use table salt that is just plain bad for you! Any natural salt of your choice is great and will help with whitening and in keeping your saliva nice and alkaline!

So here are your exact Measurements. (This makes about 1 months worth of toothpaste)

2 Tablespoons Coconut oil

2 1/2 Tablespoons baking soda

5-15 drops of essential oils (depending on your preference)

Pinch Of Salt

Here is How You Do It

Step 1. Mix essential oils with your coconut oil mashing the oil with a fork to make it easier to work with

Step 2. Mix in the baking soda one tablespoon at a time and mix well until it is identical to a thick toothpaste like consistency!

step 3. Add your salt and package it!

NOW HOW EASY WAS THAT?

I hope You All Have Fun With Your Blissful Beauty Creations As Always!

Why Is It A Good Idea To Make Your own Natural Perfume?

   Synthetic and Organic Fragrances can both be harmful in their own way. While organic derived plant oils usually only cause mild allergic reactions such as skin irritation, sneezing, and possibly a rash. The synthetic perfume industry uses chemicals extremely harmful rather it is a long or short term effect on the human body.

Benzene, aldehydes, phenols, phthalates, and so many more of these toxic fragrant additives are capable of causing Cancer, birth defects, and central nervous system disorders. This can occur by just smelling these ingredients, applying them to your skin is an even bigger issue!

So ask yourself. Would I rather risk a natural plant oil make me sneeze or increase the odds of developing cancer in my future?

Id rather sneeze thanks! 😉

Another great reason to make your own perfumes is because it is just so much fun!  I feel the perfume market is so boring, they only sell what people want to buy and I feel all the perfumes lack so much character. When you make your own perfume your true creativity and personality can be represented through your scent. You are unique, complex, and beautiful and NOT just another generic “techno living being” who smells like head ache inducing sugar and fruit!

 My favorite thing about using plants and flowers for perfume is the health benefits. Essential oils are so beneficial, and not only for your emotional and mental health but your physical health as well. Nature is the expert when it comes to the power and beauty of scent. As human beings we are much better suited for natural fragrance because we are apart of nature after all! (I will talk more on the health benefits of essential oils in further posts and videos.)

Now lets get started!

What are you going to need to make your own perfume?

The main things you will need are:

~Some of your favorite essential oils

~Pretty bottles to store your fragrance in

~ A base oil or alcohol

Some bonus materials are:

~small vials

~droppers

~labels

~Recipe Book

Your perfume is entirely your creation and you can do what ever your heart desires. However Some things that are helpful to know when it comes to experimenting with plant essences is.

~Some oils are better suited for each other and blend better together.

~Essential oils are categorized into 3 different “notes” A top note, a middle note, and a base note. It can be helpful to have a variety of notes to add depth to your perfume.

Top Notes are the aromas that catch your attention first! They are the first thing you smell but evaporate the fastest. here is a list of essential oils that are top notes:

Middle notes are what I like to call the heart of the perfume as they add alot of character and depth

Now The base notes are the heavier and long lasting oils. They are the grand finale of your scent!

Now lets discuss what the best ratio of alcohol/oil to fragrance is:
15% essential oil to alcohol/ oil is a light body spray type of concentration
20%-25 percent is a good perfume ratio
30% is EXTREMELY concentrated.
 
The last thing you need to know to make a good perfume is that good things take time!
Let your creation develop. Place your creation in a cool dark place for about a month to let the different oils truly blend and become one with each other.
 
 
 So that is pretty much all there is to it!  Get creative and have fun!
 
     I hope you all enjoy the benefits I have experienced through making my own perfumes and if you have any questions at all dont hesitate to ask. 
I will leave you now with one of my favorite quotes on fragrance:
“A thousand kinds of flowers, yellow jasmine, wild iris… I am composed of this beauty, the attar of pressed plants, rose oil, resinous balsam: live essence, I am the intelligent juice of flowers.” ~ Bahauddin, Rumi’s father
