Aromatherapy Shower Melts – DIY

These shower melts are fun and super easy to make (also known as Shower Bombs or Shower Steamers).  These are great for ‘shower people’ (like me) or for those who don’t have a tub to enjoy a hot bath with essential oils. They can also be used to relieve your airways if you have a congestion from seasonal threats. You can blend any essential oils, for your aromatherapy.

Ingredients:

1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
1/2 Cup of Corn Starch
3 Teaspoon of Water (may need to add more)
Food Coloring (optional)
Essential oils – approx 20 to 40 drops
– I used an Invigorating Blend which included the following essential oils: Bergamot, Wild Orange, Lemon and Douglas Fir

Instructions:

  • Combine Baking Soda, Epsom salt and Corn Starch and mix well until combined
  • Pour 1 teaspoon of water (only 1 teaspoon at at time) into the mix and stir until you get the consistency of slightly wet sand
  • Mixture should hold together when squeezed (like making a snowball) but should not appear wet at all. You may need to add slightly more water if it hasn’t achieved this consistency yet
  • Add one or two drops of any food coloring of your choice (this is optional, only if you want to add color)
  • Once you get this texture, add the essential oils and stir to combine
  • Push mixture into silicon molds, press in firmly (packed them in tightly) and leave at least 24 hours (48 is better) or until hardened
  • When dry, remove and store in air tight container
  • This recipe made 19 steamers but it all depends the size silicon molds are used

 

When you’re ready to shower, place one in the bottom of the shower.  Relax and enjoy your blend of aromatherapy 🙂

Hair Growth Essential Oil Treatment – DIY

My mother’s side of the family has really thin hair, especially the woman, and over the years my hair has thinned out more and more.  More so during and after my pregnancy (approx. 10 years ago).  Since then, I’ve always purchased expensive shampoos, conditioners and products trying to maintain the integrity of my hair.  Now that I’m in my early 40s, I can see another changes in my hair texture and its thinned-out more but I hide it well (at least I try to).  Last year I had some stressful moments (like losing my job twice) and I saw big chunks of hair strands that had fallen out in the shower – I was modified. I even used Rogaine for several months! I had to apply it every night, it was sticky, it wasn’t fun and I would forget to apply it.  I did see some new hair growth but I was told that once I stopped using Rogaine, it would fall out again. Also, Rogaine is a drug and with any drug, you may experience side-effects (i.e. scalp irritation, unwanted growth of facial hair, swelling, headache, dizziness, etc.) – totally not worth it!

In one of my monthly classes on Essential Oils, I met a girl who told me about the types of oils that can help hair grow.  She showed me her before & after pictures and I was really impressed. She gave me the recipe and I added one other additional essential oil (Ylang-Ylang) to the mix. Ylang-Ylang is known to strengthen, moisturize, and reduce hair loss.

Here’s the Recipe:

Hair Growth Oil Mix

1.5 oz – Fractionated Coconut Oil
1.5 oz – Jojoba Oil
2.5 oz – Avocado Oil
1 oz – Almond Oil
.5 oz – Castor Oil
30 drops – Argan Oil
30 drops – Rosemary Essential Oil
30 drops – Peppermint Essential Oils
15 drops – Ylang Ylang Essential Oils
5 drops – Horsetail Extract

Put all the oils in an applicator bottle with slant tip and apply once a week

For those who are interested, below are some of my other daily hair routine:

  • I’ve been using Nioxin System 3 (shampoo & conditioner) for the past 3 years, I buy it from Amazon (way cheaper) and I wash my hair every other day.
  • For my gray hair, I use medium brown “demi-permanent” hair color, I buy my color at Sally’s Beauty Supply but when I see my hairstylist he uses the brand Redken.
    • Demi-permanent contains no ammonia but has a small amount of peroxide and will color the hair better than Semi-permanent.
    • Demi-permanent turns my grays into a golden brown color, they look like natural highlights (its super cool!).
  • Once a week I use my DIY Hair Growth Oil Treatment (I just started this week) and below are my “before pics” … stay tuned for the after pics!

Happy Fall Diffusing

I use to love candles but since I started my oil journey, I’ve been diffusing more lately.  I love the fact that I can customize my scents at home by mixing different oils.  Most diffusers have a light (like a night light) and I’m planning to use a nice orange, warm glow for the Fall.

Diffusing can provide health benefits too! When diffusing, always use a cold-air diffusers since anything that requires heating the oils, can damage some of the beneficial properties.  It can be somewhat toxic to inhale burning oils (doesn’t sound pleasant at all).

Since October is here, I started researching what type of oils I can blend to welcome the Fall season.  I hope you enjoy these blends as much as I do and please do share your favorites with me 🙂

The Beard Oil Blend

BO

The Beard Oil – is my new recent oil blend.  I used my husband as a test subject and last week I made one for his co-worker. After doing some research on what essential oils I should use (and what they can do for the beard) – I used Jojoba carrier oil, Rosemary and Cederwood.  Keep in mind, that each oil has it’s own unique qualities and what might be great for someone, might not be for the next guy….. so please read on!

Carrier Oils for Beard Oil

Carrier oils are the most important part of any oil blend and it’s used to dilute since pure essential oils are potent and highly concentrated.  Fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil, Jojoba oil (and more) can be used as a carrier oil.  For this blend, I decided to use Jojoba oil since it’s widely known to strengthen your skin and hair.

Jojoba

Jojoba oil (pronounced ho-ho-ba) has vitamins A, D, and E and since it matches your own natural oils, it is absorbed by your face and beard. Jojoba oil is an emollient, which means it moisturizes your skin and prevents irritation, scaly or rough patches – great for any beard!

Rosemary

Rosemary essential oil is great to stimulate hair follicles making hair grow longer and stronger. It is also believed that Rosemary slows premature hair loss and gray hair.   It may also improve memory, mental fatigue and forgetfulness.

Cedarwood

Cedarwood essential oil can stimulate the hair follicles and increase circulation, it has the greatest concentration of Sesquiterpenes, which is a terpene that actually helps release toxins from the body. It can help reduce dry or flaky scalp. It’s been used as a mosquito and insect repellent. In aromatherapy, cedarwood is said to have a calming effect and a great woodsy smell!

Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil gives the beard a nice cooling sensation.  It has an antiseptic, regenerative, and stimulating effects which can relieve the skin from irritation and dry skin.  It can stimulate hair growth and give your hair a nice shine.

For those who already have the Home Essential Kit or is thinking about getting the kit, below are over 100 uses for each oil that comes in the kit.  Also check out the “Recipe tab” on the top menu for diffuser blends. I hope you enjoy – happy oiling!

OnGuard Uses 

  • Seasonal Relief – diffuse OnGuard (Protective blend) during flu season.
  • Boost your Immune System – some people amp up their Zinc or Vitamin C intake, try adding a few drops of OnGuard to your juice for added protection.
  • Dentist Visit – try swishing OnGuard with a bit of water after dental work. You can also apply On Guard directly to your teeth and gums (or add a drop to your toothpaste) to soothe irritated gums.  For a clean toothbrush, store it overnight in a small glass of water with 3-5 drops of the On Guard.
  • Gym – spray On Guard and water to wipe down sweaty vinyl seats at the gym.
  • Protection on the go – mix 5 Tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel, 4 Tablespoons water, 1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E oil and 8-10 drops of On Guard in a small squeeze bottle.

  • Rinse Cycle – add OnGuard to your wash, during the rinse cycle for all of the benefits of Protective Blend in your laundry! It will leave your laundry extra clean and smelling great.
  • Clean Carpets – add 15 drops of OnGuard to a cup of corn starch or baking soda. Mix, sprinkle and rake on carpet then allow it to sit for up to an hour. Then, vacuum it clean!
  • Tub Cleaning – mix 5-6 drops with a half cup of baking soda to clean your bath tub and skip all of the harsh, bleaching chemicals.
  • Air Filters – diffusing is awesome, but you can also put a few drops of OnGuard on your car’s cabin air filter or home air filters to obliterate dank, stale filtered air, right from the duct!
  • Garbage Bin – when you take out the garbage, spray down your cabinet with On Guard and water. On Guard Cleaner Concentrate is also excellent for this purpose.
