Summer is coming to a close! Can you believe it? I honestly can’t. We are settling into our new home in a new city so the end of summer completely caught me by surprise. We have been beyond busy! Are you ready for back to school? Back to a normal routine? Although our girls aren’t school-age, Campbell goes to a mom’s day out program at our church and it’s been on a break for the last month! Needless to say, I’m ready for that to start back up for some normalcy in our days and time for mama to work ;)

Whether you’re kiddos are going back to school, you’re going back to school, getting back in a normal routine… we could all use a little help when it comes to focus!!!

10 Supplies You Need For Your Oils

Once you have your oils, the possibilities are endless.

You've got your kit and now you want to make all the things! This might be the most fun part about being oily... the possibilities are endless when it comes to DIY! Here is a list of oily supplies I highly recommend you ordering:

As you apply essential oils topically, you'll want a carrier oil to use with them. My favorite is coconut oil, but people also use Jojoba, Grapeseed, Hemp, Olive, etc.
Just add about 1 teaspoon per 1-2 drops of essential oil and massage into skin.

When you're making roller bottles you'll need a liquid carrier oil. I like fractionated for this purpose.

Water cups or bottles are important if you're going to be add Vitality oils to your water. We don't want to be drinking from any plastic (even if you're not using oils) so make sure to find a stainless steel or glass bottle to take everywhere with you!

And on that same note, if you like to drink with straws, get yourself some stainless steel straws. The environment will thank you! PLUS, you'll be staying away from plastic, which is always good.

Using your oils in a bath is a great and relaxing way to utilize those oils! Add 5-8 drops of your preferred oil to a cup of Epsom Salts - add to bath and enjoy!

These are great for adding your oils to take internally. 

These are perfect for your every day rollers. I usually add about 30 drops of essential oil first and then fill the rest with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil.

This is an amazing base for any of your homemade soaps! I love adding a squeeze of this to my mop bucket before scrubbing the floors or to my cleaning regime in the bathrooms. 

Making sprays is super fun with oils because you can come up with your own scent. I use this size for anything hair related or for a travel-size Thieves Household Cleaner.

Don't keep your Thieves Household Cleaner in your starter kit. Get that bad boy out and start using it! These bottles hold 16 ounces of water so add some cleaner concentrate to it and get to cleaning!
