Brodie’s Top 5 Essential Oils

Hello, I am Brodie Lapray. I was born and raised in the wonderful state of Idaho. I have 3 amazing daughters and 3 wild little boys. I enjoy the outdoors and making memories with my kids. We are always going on fun adventures like fishing, hunting, kayaking, or just being outside enjoying the beautiful Idaho view.

A little over three years ago I was lucky enough to join the Plant Therapy family and I have spent the last three years as the synergy blender. I had the opportunity to become an Aromatherapist and I love it!  Aromatherapy has brought wonderful changes to my life.

It was hard choosing my 5 favorite essential oils because I love so many and use them for so many different things. So, I decided to pick the ones I use the most.

Helichrysum Italicum

Helichrysum Italicum is my go-to oil for skin issues. Helichrysum has many wonderful uses on the skin, including calming red, inflamed areas and soothing irritation caused by nature’s pests. Helichrysum oil can help relieve an itch very quickly and help the skin recover faster. Helichrysum in body butters and lotions is great for dry skin care. Helichrysum helps to relieve, soothe, and rejuvenate unhealthy skin. I add Helichrysum to olive lotion at a 2% dilution for soft, smooth and moisturized skin.

Lemon

The fresh smell of Lemon Essential Oil always uplifts my spirits. I think of it as sunshine in a bottle, and when diffused Lemon not only elevates your mood, it is very energizing. It also helps to support a healthy immune system and is a wonderful germ buster, so it’s great in cleaning products. I have many different uses for Lemon Essential Oil and here is a recipe I love for my legs.

~ Lovely Legs Lotion ~

Mix all ingredients together and apply nightly before bed.

 

Rosemary 1, 8-Cineole

Rosemary has been my best friend over the last year. I was struggling with my memory and remembering everything I was learning in a class I was taking and Rosemary helped me out a lot. When blended with Cardamom and Cedarwood Virginia in an inhaler not only does the aroma smell amazing, it also boosts brain power.

 

Cedarwood  Texas

Cedarwood Texas is the newest Cedarwood to join the Plant Therapy line and right away I was in love with the smell. It’s a warm woodsy smell like an old cedar chest I had as a kid. It is amazing in soaps and balms. I add Cedarwood Texas and Orange Sweet to my hand cream. The smell is wonderful and it helps to tone the skin.  When diffused it is a very calming oil and helps to reduce feelings of anger.

Bouquet Synergy

Bouquet is a Plant Therapy synergy I use in my home a lot. I really enjoy the smell and it is KidSafe, too. I add a few drops to a dryer sheet to freshen up the smell of my laundry. I also use Bouquet to freshen up my carpets.

 

~ Carpet Deodorizer ~
  •  Mason jar with lid
  • Baking soda
  • 30 drops Bouquet Synergy

I like to mix the oil into the baking soda using a bowel, so I can make sure it is mixed well. Then I pour the mixture into the mason jar and, using a nail, poke holes into the lid of the jar. Sprinkle on the carpet, leave on for 30 minutes then vacuum up. Voila! Fresh smelling carpets.

Holiday DIY: Spiced Apple Cider Dusting Spray

We dust because we must! Let’s face it — dust in your home is inevitable. The gradual buildup of pollen, skin cells, dander, and dirt will find its way just about everywhere and on everything.

Not only is dust unattractive, but it also decreases your home’s air quality and aggravates allergies. Tackling these dust bunnies is arguably one of the most tedious of household chores, but the longer it’s avoided, the worse it will get.

Before guests arrive for the holidays, freshen up your home with the scent of the season with this simple Spiced Apple Cider Dusting Spray! What you will need:

6 drops Jojoba Carrier Oil
10 drops Spiced Apple Cider Holiday Blend*
4 ounces distilled water
Spray bottle

What you will do:

Add all ingredients to the spray bottle and shake well.
Simply spray and wipe.

*Can substitute any Holiday Blend.

Plant Therapy’s Favorite Holiday Recipes Giveaway #6

Holidays are wonderful and full of joyful traditions. My husband, our children and I are originally from Texas. We moved far away from the rest of our family to Idaho two years ago, which has forced us to change some of our family traditions. We used to get together at my mother-in-laws and help her make different foods. While we cooked, the kids would lay around in their pajamas all day watching Christmas movies while having a cup of hot cocoa with a candy cane sitting in the mug.

But now it’s just us.

I really miss being able to help my mother-in-law in the kitchen.  To me, she has always been like my second mom, so it’s hard not having her and the rest of the family here with us.

The hardest part? Decorating.

Decorating my own home for Christmas has not always been my thing. In the past, we would spend most of our time at my in-laws, so I would help my mother-in-law decorate her home. This will be my second year decorating more than just the Christmas tree.

Here is a beautiful holiday blend that I will use this year to fill my home with joy:

Pine Cone Delight-Master Blend

10 drops of Cinnamon Bark Cinnamomum verum

10 drops of Vanilla Oleoresin Vanilla planifolia

6 drops of Coffee Coffea arabica

6 drops of Sweet Orange Citrus sinensis

4 drops of Rhododendron Rhododendron anthopogon

Shake well and add 2-3 drops per pine cone. Place them on coffee tables or as a centerpiece on your dining table to bring out the wonderful aroma.

This blend can be used in many different DIY projects.

I hope everyone has a joyful Christmas full of love, lots of blessing, and that you will continue to create memories and amazing traditions with your family.

Plant Therapy’s Favorite Holiday Recipes Giveaway #5

I have always found Christmas and the Holidays to be such a magical time of year. Even though the weather outside can be very frightful, especially here in Idaho, there is a certain warmth in the frosty air. People seem friendlier, colors are brighter, there is music everywhere, and there is a certain sense of togetherness that can only be felt around Christmas.

But what’s the BEST part of the holidays?…

From the time I was a child, I have always loved giving gifts! When I was young, my Grandpa would give me $20 to go Christmas shopping for my family. It always made me feel like I had hit the jackpot and I could spoil my family with their greatest desires — as long as those desires could be found at my local dollar store. The joy of finding that “perfect gift” far surpassed the feeling of opening my own presents on Christmas morning. I will never forget the look on my youngest brother’s face when he opened a toy car in his favorite color or my Mom’s reaction to an “I heart Mom” mug.

As an adult, I still love the joy and excitement of giving gifts to my loved ones. Whenever possible I challenge myself to hand-make presents that come from the heart and that I know each individual will enjoy. While I have always had brothers, thanks to my amazing husband I now have more sisters than I can count on one hand. Gift giving to these lovely ladies is so much fun and has opened up a whole new world of handmade gifts.

This year, we all plan to spend the Holidays together, so I thought it would be fun to create a cute, girly, stocking stuffer for each of them.

~ DIY Lip Gloss ~

What you will need:

What you will do:

  1. In a double boiler melt down all ingredients with the exception of the mica powder and essential oils.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the mica powder. I used a teaspoon of mica but you can use more if you want the color to be more prominent.
  3. Stir in 10-20 drops of Blood Orange Essential Oil (or the essential oil of your choice).
  4. Using a transfer pipette, move the mixture to the lip gloss tubes and assemble.
  5. Once cooled, apply to the lips for a sparkling glossy look.

Happy Holidays!

Having three sisters and three brothers, getting together with the family is quite a fun experience any time of year. It is a tradition of ours to all go cut down our own Christmas trees. With the seven siblings, each with their spouse and kids, we now have quite a group. Sometimes we go the day before Thanksgiving or a day or two after, depending on everyone’s schedule. We go and get our permits ahead of time so that we are ready bright and early in the morning.

With an early start,  it is donuts and juice in the cars and trucks on the way up to the mountains. Once getting to the mountains, we suit up, as most of the time it is snowing and cold. It is so worth it. After searching for multiple trees – one for each family that goes and Mom and Dad’s – it is hours later when we break for lunch, which is usually sandwiches made from leftover turkey and some chips. After eating lunch, some return to tree hunting, while others play in the snow and some ride on ATV’s. Once all the trees are found and gathered, we get together at the cars and drink hot chocolate that was made early that morning to warm us up. Upon returning with our treasures to Mom and Dad’s, we diffuse a KidSafe blend and make clothespin diffusers or ornaments for the tree. One of the things that we will be diffusing this year is Sweet Goodness.

 

Sweet Goodness

3 drops of Lemon Essential Oil

3 drops of Marjoram Sweet Essential Oil

Just a simple blend of sweet goodness that is KidSafe®.

Plant Therapy’s Favorite Holiday Recipes Giveaway #1

By: Brodie Lapray, Certified Aromatherapist

 

Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love Christmas decorations and how beautiful they make my home. I also enjoy the music, the lights, and of course all the goodies. I spend a lot of time baking with my kids around the holidays. Call me crazy, but I love snow and how it makes everything so beautiful. I love to play outside in the snow with my kids.

On Christmas Eve we get to spend time with the whole family, some of whom we only see once a year. Then it’s off to bed in new pajamas to wait for Santa. Christmas morning is the only day of the year when I’m excited to see my kids sneaking into my room at 4 am to inform me that Santa has come and asking if I could please get up. Christmas to me is spending time with the ones I love and making memories together.

Santa’s Cookies Body Butter is easy to make and smells like cookies. With over 24 hours of super-rich hydration, this deeply nourishing whipped body butter leaves your skin feeling moisturized and replenished. It also makes a great gift for Christmas, if you can give it away after smelling it.

 

Santa’s Cookies Body Butter

What you will need:

What you will do:

  1. Place all ingredients except the essential oils in a double boiler or glass bowl over simmering water.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until completely melted.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the essential oils.
  4. Place in fridge for 1 hour, or in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. Using a hand mixer, whip for 10 minutes or until fluffy.
  6. Return to the fridge for 15 minutes.
  7. Store in a glass jar with a lid and keep in a cool place, as it may get too soft if it gets too warm.

 

From our home to yours, Happy Holidays!

Diane’s Top 5 Essential Oils

 

I am Diane Mishler. In addition to being a Certified Aromatherapist, I am also a Licensed Massage Therapist.

I have been married for 34 years to my best friend. We have three children and five grandchildren. I love meeting people and am one of “those people” in the grocery store who will start up a conversation with people that I don’t know. I feel like I’m at the stage in my life when I can let go of life’s emotional expendables, pursue dreams, and help others more fully.

I love learning and putting knowledge to work. Essential oils are a perfect outlet for me and I love to curl up with a good book about constituents at the end of a long day! I also love to cook, travel, and be with my family. I’d like to share my favorite essential oils with you. Of course, it’s asking the impossible to pin your favorites down to 5, but I absolutely love these:

 

Cedarwood Himalayan Cedrus deodara , to me, smells amazing.  When I inhale Cedarwood, I wish that I had the lung capacity of an opera singer! The scent is so effective and calming for me that simply inhaling it takes me to another place. I also love Cedarwood because it has great skin properties. It calms and nourishes the skin and I’ve used it in facial blends. One of my most favorite uses is when I have a sore throat caused by either irritation, allergies, or even muscles, I dilute Cedarwood Himalayan to 2% and apply to my neck in the sore spots; within minutes I feel relief.

 

Bergamot Citrus bergamia almost pushes the Cedarwood Himalayan out of the top spot. It was very close and in some instances, it might win. Bergamot has such a lovely citrusy scent with a spicy undertone. It reminds me of and transports me to the beautiful Italian orchards from which it’s harvested. It’s so vivid, bright, and cheerful, it’s hard to feel sadness or worry around Bergamot. It’s like a best friend. It helps me with respiratory issues, tickly throats, and congestion. When I use Bergamot for these issues they can become minimized. I also find it helpful for skin issues and irritations, and in addition, Plant Therapy’s Bergamot is not phototoxic.

 

Personal Inhaler 

4 drops Bergamot

3 drops Cedarwood Himalayan

2 drops Cardamom

2 drop Chamomile Roman

Add to an Aromatherapy Inhaler and inhale throughout the day when a tickly throat occurs to feel relief.

 

Oh Vetiver Vetiveria zizonioides, how I love you. When my mind won’t stop and I need to slow down in the evening, you are there for me. It doesn’t take a lot, just a drop or two with some other oils in a diffuser blend or personal inhaler, and it does the trick. Vetiver is also wonderful for swelling and cooling. This and its relaxing properties make it nice in a massage blend for sore, hot muscles or joints.  It also helps with worry or lack of sleep as it sweeps away worrisome thoughts from your mind. It can be useful for skin issues, like blemishes, red, dry, patchy skin, and for minor wounds.

 

Tranquil Synergy is one of Plant Therapy’s synergies that I’ve chosen. As I only had a couple of spots left, I had to choose carefully and Tranquil speaks to me. It is a beautiful blend that calms, which helps me peel away excess thoughts so I can focus. It has those citrus notes that I love as well as earthy elements too. Tranquil is great diffused and you will soon find your breathing slowing down just a little and remembering what is good in life.

 

Wood Spice – mmmm. So warm, inviting, and spicy! I love the way the 5 essential oils in this synergy blend together, and they seem to improve with time. I’m definitely seeing a pattern here. I seemed to have picked relaxing, calming oils for my top 5 picks and this must be what I need at this time. Wood Spice is something both women and men will love and it may solve many quarrels! It is grounding, soothing to frayed nerves, and would be great in a lotion, massage oil, or even perfume. I put it in soaps at a low dilution or an aromatherapy inhaler to help me through an intense day.

 

Personalized Soaps

What you will need:

  • 1 lb  Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • 20-25 drops  Tranquil or Wood Spice  (or another synergy of your choice)
  • Soap coloring
  • Silicone molds
  • Rubbing Alcohol (at least 91% alcohol to help reduce bubbling)
  • Clean spray bottle (For Rubbing Alcohol)

What you will do:

  1. Melt the Melt and Pour Soap Base in a microwave safe bowl in increments of 20 seconds, stirring each time, until melted.
  2. Add coloring and essential oils, and mix.
  3. Spray silicone mold with rubbing alcohol.
  4. Pour soap into molds and spray tops of soap again with alcohol.
  5. Let set for a few hours before removing from mold.  The number of soaps will depend on the size of the mold.

 

It’s been such a positive experience becoming a Certified Aromatherapist and working at Plant Therapy. I’ve learned so much from having to do research, interacting with our great customers, and working with such wonderful, knowledgeable co-workers. I appreciate having the opportunity to share my 5 favorite essential oils with you and hope that if you haven’t given these a try, that you might in the future.

Natural Skincare Routine: Dry Skin DIY Recipes

In this installment of our Natural Skincare Routine series we will discuss using essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils for dry skin.

Many are plagued by dry skin, especially during the cold, harsh winter months. Dry skin is characterized by having nearly invisible pores, red patches, a dull and rough complexion, visible lines, and a lack of elasticity. This skin type can be prone to cracks, irritation, and inflammation and can be made worse by harsh cleansers, hormones, indoor heating, and weather changes. Using a natural skincare routine that utilizes products with humectant and emollient properties can be very beneficial.

Products for Dry Skin

Carrier Oils: Almond, Apricot Kernel, Argan OrganicAvocado, Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Meadowfoam, Rosehip , Sunflower Organic, Tamanu.

Carrier Oil Blends: DermiSoothe and Near Perfection  

Oil Cleanser: Oil Cleanser for Normal/Dry Skin

Hydrosols: Helichrysum Organic, Lavender Organic, and Rose Organic.

Essential Oils: Bergamot, Carrot Seed, Frankincense Frereana, Geranium, German Chamomile, Lavender, Neroli, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Roman Chamomile, Rose Absolute, Sandalwood.

Cleansers

Using the wrong cleanser can easily create chaos for your skin and it can take weeks to calm the irritation and roughness after using such a product. To help our customers that tend to be dry, Plant Therapy created our Oil Cleanser for Normal/Dry Skin. To use this cleanser rub four to six drops into dry hands and apply evenly over dry face. Wet the face and massage gently. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel. Avoid the eye area when washing the face or using as a moisturizer.

Many essential oil users also like to use the Oil Cleanse Method which you can read more about here. If you do attempt to use this method I would recommend reducing the amount of castor oil as it can be very drying to already parched skin.

We recommend cleansing the face twice daily, once in the morning and once before bedtime.

Toners

Toners are often used after washing your face to help finish the cleansing process and help with the appearance of pores. Hydrosols are great options to use as toners but it is important to choose the right ones for your skin type. As noted above we recommend Helichrysum, Lavender, and Rose for dry skin. Try the following blend for a well balanced toner:

Dry Skin Toner

What you’ll need:

2 ounces Rose Hydrosol

1 ounce Lavender Hydrosol

1 ounce Helichrysum Hydrosol

What you’ll do:

Mix together in a 4 ounce bottle and spritz the face after cleansing. Refrigerate between uses.

Moisturizers

While both the cleansers and toners listed above offer some emollient properties, it is important to also use a moisturizing agent for dry skin after cleansing. Both our DermiSoothe and Near Perfection carrier oil blends are great choices and can be applied right after the cleansing process.

For severely dry skin you can create this helpful DIY Moisturizing Cream:

What you’ll need:

2 ounces Shea Butter Refined

2 ounces DermiSoothe Carrier Oil Blend

4 ounce bottle

What you’ll do:

Measure ingredients and mix together using a hand mixer. You can then transfer the lotion from the mixing bowl to the empty bottle (I use a frosting bag). Apply directly to parched, irritated skin.

Masks

Once a week it is good practice to apply a moisturizing mask to the skin. Here are two of my favorite DIY masks for dry skin:

Oatmeal Mask

What you’ll need:

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup cooked oatmeal

1 teaspoon Almond

1 teaspoon Avocado

3 drops Roman Chamomile

2 drops Frankincense Frereana

1 drop Rose absolute

What you’ll do:

Mix ingredients together and gently apply to the face, avoiding the eye area. Let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off the mask with cold water and gently pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer.

Soothing Shea Mask

What you’ll need:

1 tablespoon Shea Butter

1 Tablespoon Jojoba

1 Tablespoon Aloe Vera Jelly

3 drops Bergamot

2 drops Sandalwood

1 drop Chamomile German

What you’ll do:

Add the essential oils to a tablespoon of Jojoba and then combine with the rest of the ingredients. Apply the mask and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off the mask with cold water and gently pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer.

If you are diligent with following this routine you can drastically improve the appearance and bring moisture back to your skin.

LeAnna’s Top 5 Essential Oils

 

Hello everyone, I am LeAnna Magee.  I am a single mom of two amazing boys. We are a family that loves sports. One of us always has a game or practice to be played. I play on a coed softball team and bowl with a group of amazing ladies in a men’s league. My boys play soccer, basketball, and also bowl. If there was more time I know we would do more but there are only so many hours in the day. With an activity every day, sometimes two, we are very busy. When we are not participating in a sporting event, we are in the mountains camping and enjoying nature. We love to shoot and hike.  I enjoy cooking but do not have a lot of time with our busy schedule. I also like to try to fix and install things on my own.  As an aromatherapist,  essential oils have become so important. The task of just picking 5 has been near impossible, but here goes.

My most favorite and go-to oil is Black PepperPiper nigrum. Being a sports family this helps with our discomfort after a long game; eases my achy joints as I am not a spring chicken anymore, but still love to play. We have found it great for those bruises when you catch the softball with your shin instead of your glove or your opponent uses your leg to kick instead of the soccer ball.

Recipe

1 ounce Aloe Vera Jelly

6 drops  Black Pepper

Apply to affected area.

 

My 2nd choice is Spring Blossoms Synergy. This blend of oils is so uplifting and puts a spring in my step when I am feeling down or need a pick me up. Neroli,  Orange Sweet, and Lime are a perfect combination to keep me going, during the long winter months when the only sport we can play where we live is bowling. We sometimes feel a little down when we want to get out, but can’t due to the weather. No recipe needed here, just diffuse.

 

Next is Helichrysum Italicum Helichrysum italicum. This oil is great for so many things. It reduces the appearance of scars and playing sports all the time we end up with our share of bumps and bruises. It is also used for emotional feelings and to help boost immune function. I, as well as many others, struggle with just getting through some days and this is my go-to oil for this. It helps make me feel in control and empowered.

Recipe  

10 ml Roller bottle

1 ounce  DermiSoothe Carrier Oil Blend

3 drops  Helichrysum Italicum

3 drops Black Pepper

 

Another essential oil that is widely used in my house is Grapefruit Pink  Citrus x paradisi. Some mornings after a short night, whether it is because of a late night game or some laundry that just has to be done by morning, I need a pick me up. I then turn to Grapefruit. It is so fresh and uplifting, this helps me get through my mornings and my co-workers are not on the end of my grouchiness due to lack of sleep.Ten drops in an aromatherapy inhaler and you are ready to go.

 

And last, but not least is Bergamot Citrus bergamia. This oil is calming and grounding; it helps when I have a lot going on and I just need to step back and assess what is most important. It helps me realize that teenage boys will be boys and they are not always going to have perfect grades and make the best decisions, but they too, are learning and growing. I refer to this oil as my mental wellness oil. This oil can also help with those sore, tired muscles that we feel after a long day of sports. It is such a great and diverse oil.

Recipe

1 ounce of Healing Balm

3 drops of Bergamot

1 drop of Black Pepper

2 drop of Helichrysum Italicum

Blend together for the perfect muscle rub.

Black Pepper plant

 

I could list so many more oils but we are limited to 5 in this article. There are always so many new oils and products that Plant Therapy comes out with all the time, but I find these few simple oils my go-to oils to keep my household going and happy. Being a Certified Aromatherapist at Plant Therapy and working with our great staff and customers is a great blessing every day. Being able to share a few oils with you has been a joy. I hope they will help you as they have helped me and my boys.
