One of the fun parts of using essential oils is being able to create your own products to use in your daily life. When you turn any project in to a party, its so much more fun in my eyes! I love hosting events, and getting to share the benefits of Young Living essential oils is an added bonus! I shared some details on Instagram a while back (@whitneymichaels_essentials) but wanted to share more details with you here!
Have no idea what essential oils are? Start HERE 🙂
Of course we displayed the Premium Starter Kit and had a few resources we love for our guests to look at. The Pocket Reference, Gentle Babies, Hello Glow, Lucy Libido, and some information cards from Young Living. We made it a little more personal by having bags for the gals to take home their goodies and a survey for the end. We learned their information for follow ups plus they entered for a little prize by filling it out!
When choosing what to make we wanted simple (to show that ANYONE can utilize oils), but we also wanted a recipe that was a little more involved since we had the perfect small group. Here’s what we made:
Bath Salts are something that make you feel like you’re at a spa, but are so simple! We used lemon and lavender oils, but adding about 10 drops of any oils to the base recipe is perfect! Another favorite of mine is 5-6 Stress Away and 3-4 Lime.
1 cup of Epsom Salt
1/4 cup of baking soda (if I’m just mixing it quick before my bath I don’t add this. Only when its going to be stored in a bag or jar.)
8-10 drops of essential oils
Rollers are probably the quickest, most portable, and least messy way to utilize oils in my opinion! For beginners a roller is a no brainer. Just tell them how and where to apply and they can use it right away! We offered two options: Immunity support or Energy support.
Immunity: 20 Thieves, 10 lemon, top with FCO
Energy: 9 Lemon, 6 Peppermint, 2 Frankincense, top with FCO
Our lip scrub recipe we found in the book, Hello Glow and I love the citrus scent!
1 TBS sugar
1 TBS coconut oil
1 drop of lime essential oils
Last was the Grapefruit + Mint body scrub, recipe courtesy of Jessica Garvin @grapefruitandgold. (We did one big recipe and then just divided it into 6 containers.)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar
zest of 1 grapefruit
10 drops of peppermint
30 drops of grapefruit
This scrub is a favorite of mine and all of our guests LOVED the fresh citrus scent!
We had a few snacks – chips and guac (with lime eo), taquitos (easy bake ahead), and fancied up some pre-made margaritas with a drop of orange eo in each glass…super yummy! They would have been even better if I remembered to make the Lime Salt I made for Cince de Mayo. Everyone was so intrigued by the fact that they were eating and drinking the oils as well! It’s a great way to teach about the different uses!
We sent everyone home with their goodies they made in the personalized bag, plus a sheet spray as a thank you made by our host, Brooke @lovegraceandgoldenroots.
One guest signed up as a member that evening after I sent her the information email and another who had just signed up the week before wanted to pursue the business side! yay! So happy to spread the love of oils…
I hope you have so much fun planning your next oily event!
