My July Essential Reward order is here! I want to share with you all the great stuff that we received.
Here it is…
Lime Essential Oil
So excited to have this citrus oil. We love avocados! We like them plain with a little sea salt or a quick guacamole. So I tried the lime oil in a batch of guacamole and made a rookie move, which is pretty common place for me in the kitchen! 🙂 Just a little advice, start with 1 drop and then add to taste. I was quickly reminded how strong these oils are. The recipe I was following said 5-6 drops and used only 2 avocados, so I thought it would be conservative to use the 5-6 drops with 3 avocados. Umm…Wrong! We saved it with adding another avocado and more sea salt, but you could still really taste the lime. My favorite guacamole recipe is my mother-in-laws, and if you are interested I posted it on Girls Just Want to Go Green. Super yummy and simple! Lime essential oil is also a great antioxidant and supportive to the immune system, even mental alertness.
Ocotea Essential Oil
This oil comes from the ocotea tree in Ecuador. It has a bit of a cinnamon base but is a lot different from a traditional cinnamon taste. It is known for its cleansing and purifying properties. The other common use for Ocotea is to aid the body in its response to injury and irritation.
Our Promotional Oils
The oils we got FREE this month for the July promotion are Ylang Ylang and Bergamot. So far I have worn the Ylang Ylang on my wrists and inner forearms and diffused it. I have done the same thing with the Bergamot. These oils smell great and are both uplifting! I am really glad to have them with my little guy starting kindergarten in just a few short weeks. Yikes! This Momma will be relying on lots of oils and prayer. I also know that God likes to cover you in peace in times when you need it the most!
Our Regular Oils…Lavender, Grapefruit, Orange and Deep Relief Roll-on
These are oils we use often…almost DAILY. The Lavender we use for just about everything. Grapefruit and Orange we use to flavor our water and Kombucha. Deep Relief Roll-On can be applied to many locations and has an energizing and invigorating scent. This little roll-on is a must have!!
Then lastly we needed more NingXia Red. We ran out about a week before our new order arrived and I could absolutely tell. The perfect antioxidant drink for the body.
Love this monthly box of goodies. I love changing it up and trying new oils, getting things off my wish list and restocking our staple oils…THE BEST!
