As some of you know I love using my essential oils. There are some recipes I use that work so well I tend to go back to them when in need. One common issues, especially this time of year with my kids is chapped lips. I’ve heard how people can actually become “addicted” to chapsticks and the lips almost need them after using them for so long. I use this essential oil recipe for chapped lips and it works great. If I put this on my kids before they go to sleep by morning they look at least 50% better and within a day or two it’s pretty much gone.
If you want to make a pot to keep on hand you’ll also need a clean, sealable container to keep it in. Amazon has plenty of lip gloss pots to choose from too.
For one time use, use about a dime sized amount of coconut oil in your palm. Add 1 -2 drop of Myrrh essential oil. Mix with your finger and apply to lips. To make a pot, regular coconut oil is a little better in a pot while fractionated is better in a rollerball or small squeeze bottle. Mix about 1 tsp of coconut oil with 2-3 drops of Myrrh essential oil and seal.

Simply Earth essential oil recipe box is just what you need to build your essential oil collection, introduce yourself to essential oils, or to get new ideas to use essential oils.
I have a subscription to Simply Earth essential oil recipe box. I pay for it myself, this is NOT a sponsored post. I love using essential oils in my daily life. Working in the medical field myself I like to use them as a compliment or in addition to things I’m already doing for myself.
I received my January box with my bonus box and it’s definitely worth every penny and more. I also tested my coupon code and got a $20 gift card to use. I decided to use mine on an essential oil storage box. I’ll receive it in my February box.
When I signed up I got the bonus box with me as well as the free $20 gift card. The brown box featured below is what the regular monthly boxes look like. The blue box is the bonus box.
Each monthly box comes with essential oil recipes cards, 3 – 4 full size essential oils, and ingredients/tools you’ll need to help with some of the recipes. For example, in this box one of the recipes is for a “relaxing textured massage bar” so I received a mold for the bar, beeswax, coconut oil, tapioca, pearls, and the essential oils needed to make the bar. They also provide labels so you can label your items once you’ve made them which I think is pretty cool.
The bonus box came with a few carrier oils, extra rollerballs, extra essential oil bottles, and beeswax. Always using rollerballs for something so it definitely helps to have extras!
Simply Earth essential oils are 100% pure. Every batch is tested to ensure 100% purity. GC/MS reports are displayed right on the product page for each oil. They don’t do any made up testing that some companies do. You can read more about Simply Earth essential oils here

As a Doterra Wellness Advocate I know what using essential oils safely can do. Essential oils have helped me with my depression, anxiety, and even helped ease some of my stomach issues. I’ve used them to clear up chapped lips and ease fevers. Using essential oils that are 100% pure like Doterra can naturally help with a lot of issues if used properly.
Today I want to talk about Hot Oils. I never heard the term until I became a Doterra Wellness Advocate. I figure, If I hadn’t heard of it, there’s probably a few others out there that haven’t.
What are Hot Oils?
Hot Oils are essential oils that should not be applied directly to the skin. They can literally give a hot even burning feeling if applied directly. So what do you do with hot oils when you want to apply them to the skin? An oil like Thyme is considered a hot oil but can help ease discomfort of athlete’s foot among other things. So of course you would want to apply Thyme to your feet. You would use a carrier oil in this case. Remember that pure essential oils are up to 100x concentrated. They do have effects on the body. Similar to medications, if used improperly won’t have the desired effect.
What is a Carrier Oil?
Carrier oils are oils like coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, or even olive oil just to name a few. You would put a drop of Thyme in with a carrier oil to massage it onto your skin. I like to use 1 drop of hot oil to 1 tablespoon ratio when dealing with hot oils.
Doterra makes a wonderful fractionated coconut oil that is a carrier oil. Kits like the Aromatouch kit come with a bottle of fractionated coconut oil. You can also just buy a bottle of coconut oil individually.
Which oils are Hot Oils?
Hot oils include: Oregano, Thyme, Clove, Cinnamon/Cinnamon bark, Cassia, Hyssop, and Ocotea. The last two, Doterra does not yet carry but I think it’s important to list them as I know some people will search “hot oils” not necessarily for the Doterra brand.
Carrier oils can be used with all essential oils and still get the benefit of the essential oil. If you have sensitive skin, want to cover a larger area of your body, or are unsure about an oil use a carrier oil. ALWAYS read the labels of essential oils. Some are hot oils, some should not be ingested, and some you should avoid sun exposure with.
