Cooped Up? Feeling Cabin Fever?

After being cooped up in the house all winter, I can feel the stuffiness in my home as we have kept all the windows and doors closed in an attempt to keep the heat in. How can I clean the air and freshen up the house in these cold months?

Essential oils are SUPERSTARS when it comes to disinfecting, cleaning, and freshening your space. One application we can use to freshen things up is misting essential oils throughout the home. Using essential oils in misters is one of the easiest applications and one that you can smell and feel the difference almost immediately.

Some of the oils that are the best when it comes to this use are Lemon, Balsam Fir, Orange, and Scotch Pine. Another option is a blend that was created by a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist called Clean and Clear. This blend of oils was formulated with two purposes. The first was to have the best oils to disinfect the home. This can be sprayed throughout the home, used in laundry, wipe surfaces or any other way you wish to zap unwanted pathogens that may be present. The other use is that these same oils are amazing at clearing negative or stagnant energy in the home. These oils really get low and negative energy moved out. An example might be a situation where a miscommunication took place in which unkind and means words were spoken. Have you ever noticed that uneasy feeling that can linger sometimes too long? These oils clear that energy and restore a clean clear space to enjoy.Clean and Clear 8-10-16

One application that I have seen miracles happen is in the bedroom when it comes to sleep. Where we sleep can become stagnant, and hold energy that prevents us from getting that restful sleep we need to renew. Right before you get into bed simply spray the Clean & Clear blend over your pillow, sheets, top of bed, your entire bedroom, and lastly mist your entire self by spraying the blend above your head and letting it mist down over you. Try it and see if it isn’t the most delightful night’s rest. If you are married you may want to include your spouse in the misting, just saying.

So how is all of this done? As you know, with Purify Skin Therapy, when you get any blend from us you will receive instructions on exactly what to do and how to do it. You will need a glass mister bottle for this. Try to stay away from plastic spray bottles, as essential oils react with the plastic and having plastic molecules in your essential oils isn’t what you want. You can get nice blue glass misters here. We have them in 4 oz, 2 oz, and 1 oz.

Only mix up as much as you see yourself using in seven days or less. When you combine essential oils with water the properties of the oil that you are wanting to get out decrease exponentially. At seven days it pretty much isn’t going to be good for anything, and would just need to be thrown out.

In the glass mister bottle you will add 10-15 drops of the oil you have chosen to about 2 oz. water, depending on the strength you want (a little more or less). The oil will sit on the top of the water, so as you get ready to spray and as you go throughout your home you will want to keep vigorously shaking the bottle and then spray.

If disinfecting surfaces just spray right on that surface and wipe it off. If you are freshening a room spray as high as you can and let the mist fall. If you are clearing unwanted energy you will want to mist as high as you can and then take a fan and wave the mist up into the corners and top of the room and let it fall.

This is one of the easiest and funnest ways of using your essential oils. Good luck!
