Happy December everyone! Some of you that follow Monarch Room know that we love our essential oils. We use them for about everything you can think of under the sun. We keep our immune systems ship-shape, make our own personal care products, and also scent our home with these amazing oils. As we head into the holiday season I wanted to share some of the ways we use them this time of year and also share a few handmade holiday gift ideas. There are so many people in our family that often we draw names for gift giving. It's still fun for me to make some handmade gifts even though we aren't officially supposed to buy gifts for the adults in the family. Here are a few of the things I'm sharing with my loved ones this year. Keep an eye out for a giveaway at the end!
Another thing we love to have this time of year is hot apple cider. We added these 3 oils to spice it up. This drink is so lovely on a cold winter day. By the way, this also will scent your house in such a beautiful way!
Make sure to check your bottles to see if they are safe for internal use. YL is guaranteed for safety and purity. It's really easy to tell which are ok to add to food. The vitality oils are marked with a white label like these in the picture.
Who doesn't love to soak in a hot bath this time of year? I absolutely adore Frankincense. It is my hands down #1 favorite essential oil. It's especially lovely combined with lavender in this recipe. This is really simple to make and makes great gifts. I'll be making baggies of this to share with the ladies in my family (you will know I love you if I part with my frankincense for the record.) You could substitute many different oil combinations. This combo is especially great for dry winter skin.
