Plants & Essential Oils
Essential oils don't just help us, they can help with your plant babies as well. Personally, I live in a jungle - every room in my house has plants!
I think it's a great way to add color, life, and also decorate. Plants are not only beautiful, but great for the air!
According to NASA's Clean Air Study, which was designed to find ways to clean the air in sealed space stations, plants can be effective to absorb carbon dioxide, release oxygen into the air, and remove pollutants like benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. These chemicals can cause irritation to the skin, ears, eyes, nose, and throat, as well as some cancers, according to the EPA.
Every time I water my plant babies I add a few drops of Citrus Fresh into my watering can. Citrus Fresh has Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin Orange & Spearmint. Adding this amazing oil to your watering can can help purify the soil & helps the plants/room smell delicious!
When you become a Young Living member, Citrus Fresh is one of the oils that comes in your starter kit! You also get a bunch of other oils that you can use in your everyday life such as Peppermint which is great to repel ants, spiders, aphids, beetles. Peppermint is one of my go-to's for headaches as well. You can get your starter kit here.
When signing up for a starter kit and become a member you get to save 24 percent off retail pricing and earn as much as 25 percent each order back in Essential Rewards points when enrolling in the Essential Rewards program when signing up.
Another healthy remedy that I do with my plants is give a little spray of Thieves after I am done watering. I use Thieves Cleaner to literally clean my entire house. Since its ingredients are 100% plant and mineral based, the plants love it as well. One bottle for $22 can make 30 16oz bottles! You can also sign up for a Thieves starter kit here if you prefer to make a full change to switch and ditch the chemicals!
