Since I’ve started using essential oils, I’ve learned a lot about some of the things you can make. One of my new favorite oils is the Nature’s Bounty® Earthly Elements™ Eucalyptus Oil. I’m amazed at the things this oil does. Here are some recipes to get you started.
8 drops ravintsara essential oil
4 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops tea tree essential oil
In a ⅙ oz (5 mL) glass bottle, combine essentials oils and shake to blend.
Use in massage oil – 1 tsp sweet almond oil with 2 drops of blend
Inhaler – 21 drops on inhaler wick, allow it to absorb completely. Insert wick inside the inhaler tube and tightly cap.
Steam inhalation – 2 cups boiling water with 1 drop of blend. Sit comfortably and place face 8 to 12 inches over bowl with a towel draped over your head to trap the steam. Breathe in the vapors for a minute and then raise your head out for a few moments for fresh air. Do this for 5-10 minutes.
Fresh Scents Blend:
80 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
60 drops tea tree essential oil
45 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops thyme ct. thymol essential oil
5 drops cinnamon essential oil
In a ⅓ oz (10 mL) glass dropper bottle, combine all oils and shake to blend. Use the blend in a bath (add 4-6 drops with 1 tsp milk and pour into bath) or in a massage oil (4 tsp sweet almond oil and 8 drops of blend).
Make Homemade Vapor Rub:
5 Tbsp Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp shea or cocoa butter
1 Tbsp beeswax
20 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops tea tree essential oil
Blend essential oils in a glass dropper bottle and shake to blend. (I like to make extra to use in bath bombs, see recipe for that below). Melt coconut oil, beeswax, and butter in a double boiler. Remove from heat and allow the mix to cool for 5 minute so that it doesn’t damage the oils. Then mix your essential oils in and blend. Pour mixture into a glass jar.
Eucalyptus is also great at removing stains and grease marks from clothing. Make sure to wash it in hot water (at least 104 degrees) and air dry. Make sure you air dry because some essential oils can cause fires in the dryer if they haven’t been removed completely from fabrics.
