Purify that smell…and so many other things.

5 drops purify with regular amount of water.  Aromalight diffuser lasts for 8 hours

This is something that we suffer from occasionally in our home.  We have a baby that is eating real food but still wearing diapers, and we also have a cat who will occasionally get herself locked into a room for most of the day and end up pooping on the floor.  Something that we have noticed is that in these situations, the smell can linger.  When we change the baby’s diaper, his room can stink for hours afterward and the same goes for after the cat accident is cleaned.
In order to combat the smells that occasionally invade our lives, we have found that our diffuser works wonders.  Once the mess is cleaned up we set the diffuser up in the room, throw five drops of purify in it, and turn it on.  We use the Aromalight diffuser (Affiliate Link) and it stays on for 8 hours.  This is more than enough time to kill the smelliness and make the room smell fresh.
Purify is David’s favorite oil to put through a diffuser.  It contains a mixture of Lemon Peel, Lime Peel, Siberian Fir Needle, Austrian Fir Needle, Pine Needle, Citronella Grass, Melaleuca Leaf, and Cilantro Herb essential oils.  Purify is specifically meant to be a deodorizer and doTERRA hit a home run with this oil.
When you have kids it is amazing how many messes they make without even trying.  Keeping a bottle of Purify handy is a must have.  Many of the oils included in the blend are not safe for internal use, but it can be used topically for bug bites, smelly laundry, as a natural cleaning agent, as an air freshener in your car (put a little on a cotton ball and stick it in the vent).  We have also found that it can remove the burned crud on the stove, and get the funky smell out of the fridge with these cool DIY Fridge Refreshers.
There are many doTERRA oils that can do many things, but few are as versatile and smell as good as doTERRA Purify.

8 Quick Essential Oil Mixtures To Help You Find Your Happy Place

Something that we have noticed with our kids, is that they live on an emotional rollercoaster.  They can go from being excited to anxious in the blink of an eye.  They can be crying because they stubbed their toe and then 30 seconds later be doing cartwheels in the hallway.  There are also times when our children’s emotions are not fleeting.

Whether they have a big test coming up, had a rough day at school, or just can’t seem to shake themselves out of the doldrums, we have found that aromatherapy can be a wonderful tool to ease their minds and get them back on the path to happiness.  Diffusing oils is also a great way for kids to enjoy the benefits of the essential oils without having to worry about having skin reactions.  Inhaled oils have also been shown to enhance feelings of relaxation, encouragement, excitement, focus, and well-being.

Listed below are eight simple recipes that when diffused can work wonders on your children’s (and hopefully your) emotional well-being.

Many of the blends mentioned have citrus oils (lemon, lime, wild orange, etc.) that have natural cleansing and refreshing properties.  Most children love fruit (we know ours do) and the smell of wild orange or lemon can immediately take their mind off of the troubles they are having. If you’re in a pinch and not sure what range of emotions your child is feeling at the time, diffusing citrus oils is a great place to start.

Aside from citrus oils, many of the blends also contain either mint or woody fragrances.  Mint scents have been used to aid in soothing stomachs and anxiety for many years.  While wood blends can promote peaceful and calming emotions.

The DoTERRA blends (DoTERRA Forgive, Balance, Passion, etc.) are premixed blends containing multiple essential oils.  These oils work together to help overcome certain feelings or ailments.  For instance the DoTERRA Balance blend contains Spruce Needle/Leaf, Ho Wood, Frankincense Resin, Blue Tansy Flower, and Blue Chamomile Flower essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.  Many of the oils used in the proprietary blends are not available as stand alone oils.

It is always good to let your children smell the oils before diffusing them as this can help in a couple of ways. First, it can distract them from the feelings that they have. Second, when a child helps to do something, they take pride in it. This can amplify the effect that the oils have on the child do to them having more of a connection to that specific blend.

Give these mixtures a try, and please tell us what you think!
