Travel take alongs

Revive spray

After riding in a car for a long trip try mixing

9 drops laveder e.o,
7 drops orange e.o.
in 1 2/3 oz of distilled water.

Place these in a spray bottle. Shake virorously, then close your eyes and lighty mist your face or even spray in your personal space for a quick refresher spray. Also good after a long plane flight.


Clean Air Spritzer

These three essential oils are said to kill hundreds of airborne viruses and bacteria. Just spray your home, office, hospital room, class room etc and enjoy the difference.

1/2 tsp Bergamot Essential oil
1/2 tsp Eucalyptus Essential oil
1/2 tsp Lavender Essential oil
2oz pure distilled water
2oz vodka (acts as a preservative)

Put the essential oils in a 4 oz spritzer bottle and fill with vodka and water. Shake and use as often as you like. You can vary the amounts of oils to get the right scent for you.


For traveling in hotels

I  put 6 drops each, tea tree and eucalyptus into a spray bottle of
water and spray EVERYTHING in the hotel room when I travel..the floor, phone
remote, bedding, bathroom - door knobs - everything.. . ick...germs. ..kills
them DEAD.


Spraying the air in the hotel room with this mixture is good too.

Wild Rose Elixr

Use your elixir as a substitute for Rescue Remedy or whenever a calming, mood-enhancing, heart opening influence is needed. It’s also great externally for burns, bug bites, infections and wounds, along with MANY many other uses.

1 canning jar (or other sealable glass jar)
Wild Rose petals (and some leaves and buds if desired)
Raw honey (preferably a lighter wildflower variety since darker honeys will tend to muffle the Rose taste more. Vegetable glycerine can also be used, especially for diabetic or people who can’t have any sugar at all.)
Brandy (although vodka or everclear can work. If using everclear, dilute to about somewhere between 40-50% alcohol with water)

Fill jar with petals, then fill about 2/3 of the jar with alcohol, then fill the rest of the way with honey (less or more to taste). Cover and let steep in a cool, dark place for about a month.

A note on straining your elixir: You can strain the petals out and eat them separately if you like, they taste very yummy and have lots of medicine in them… you could candy them or put them on a berry flax cake or any number of other yummy things.

Petitgrain essential oil

Petitgrain is a soothing oil that can be refreshing or relaxing depending on which oils it is blended with. It is a valuable antidepressant, which also strengthens and supports the nervous system and acts as a general tonic. It helps to tone the digestive system and is able to control and reduce spasms in the body, especially in the digestive system

For anxiety: 4 drops Petitgrain, 3 drops geranium, 3 drops sandalwood

For Insomnia: 3 drops Petitgrain, 4 drops lavender, 3 drops ylang ylang
