Happy Valentine’s, Galentine’s, Palentine’s Day!!! Everyone gives and receives love differently and today is the perfect day to explore those ways with our love of essential oils!
Acts of Service
Nothing says “I love you” like doing something to show you care. What better way than by cleaning the worst room in the house: the bathroom! Using a spray bottle with water and Refresh Blend will whip that bath/shower and toilet into shape. Try this mirror/faucet cleaner to better reflect your fabulous loved one. 😉
- 1 1/2 C White Vinegar
- 1/2 C Distilled Water
- 8 Drops Citrus Essential Oil (Bergamot, Lemon, Lime, or Wild Orange)
- PET Spray Bottle
Pour water and vinegar into the spray bottle then add desired essential oil(s). Shake well before each use. Spray on mirror or faucet and wipe clean with a dry towel.
As Valerie Warwood perfectly put into words, “Touch can be wonderfully reassuring and can convey the love felt between two people better than words. And there is nothing on this earth more beneficial than the energy of loving touch.” Something as simple as a foot rub or neck massage can relax and comfort. If your Val/Gal/Pal’s Love Language is physical touch, a sweet, non-assuming massage is the ticket!
- 2 drops favorite essential oil or blend (Rose, Jasmine, Harmony, Dream, Bliss)
- 1 teaspoon (5mL) carrier oil (Sweet Almond, Coconut)
Combine oils and gently massage onto skin.
“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”
― Lao Tzu
Quality does not equal quantity, but rather good use of the time you have. Whether you’re walking hand-in-hand through the park, baking together, or even watching a movie, time together is important. Just like a certain song can trigger a specific memory, so can smell. However you choose to spend time with your loved one, enhance the experience with your favorite essential oil or blend. Out of ideas? Try this blend!
Set-The-Mood Diffuser Blend
- 1 Drop Cinnamon
- 1 Drop Patchouli
- 1 Drop Rosemary
- 1 Drop Sandalwood
- 1 Drop White Fir
- 1 Drop Ylang Ylang
Fill diffuser to the max line and add essential oils. Diffuse to “set the mood”.
Who here loves gifts?! This one’s for you. Flowers are great. Chocolates are yummy. But how about something new this Valentine’s Day? A diffuser necklace that can be used time and time again or a set of bath bombs for a relaxing or energizing experience would certainly do the trick. More of a DIYer? Make an invigorating sugar scrub with oils like Lemon and Lavender or Frankincense and Lime. My personal fav? Wild Orange Scrub.
Wild Orange Scrub
Combine together in a sealable glass jar and label.
Words of Affirmation
If you’re loved one thrives on words of affirmation, have we got a simple (yet loving and meaningful) idea for you! Two words: Spritzed Notecards. Yep. As easy as it sounds! Write uplifting things on several notecards such as “You are beautiful”, “Everyday I love you more”, “You are my fav!”, etc. Spritz them with Rosewater (or a spray bottle with water and a few drops of your/their favorite essential oil) and place them around the house for them to find.
So there you have it! The 5 Love Languages and essential oils. No matter how you express your love, have a wonderful, oil-tastic day! 😉
