I love essential oils—and I love coconut oil! I am known as the Essential Oil Goddess and when the right essential oils are combined with Coconut Magic coconut oil, the outcome is the Goddess of Magic.
Essential oils are potent substances derived from parts of aromatic plants such as the flowers, leaves, fruit,root, bark and wood. They contain concentrated, complex chemical constituents which determine the therapeutic and fragrant properties of the oil. Essential oils are also known as the concentrated “life force” of the plant. Imagine the power of essential oils and coconut oil together as one. I have developed seven amazing recipes for you to start you on your aromatic journey. Enjoy!
Each of the following recipes is suitable for blending in 20mL Coconut Magic coconut oil:
Essential oils for wrinkles. Many essential oils have chemical compounds that support skin health. Choose any combination of 2-6 drops of essential oils from the following list:
i. Geranium essential oil
ii. Patchouli essential oil
iii. Frankincense essential oil
iv. Myrrh essential oil
v. Rosewood essential oil
Uplift and Revive. Blend 2 drops of peppermint essential oil with coconut oil and add to pulse points on the body. This blend can also be used to help cool the body on a hot day (and drink plenty of water!)
Sense and Sensuality. Add some love to your life! Blend 1 drop each of jasmine, geranium and orange essential oil to coconut oil. Run a bath, soak and then lavishly apply the blend from head to toe.
Energy Balance. Take 1 drop each of frankincense, rosewood and spruce essential oil and combine with coconut oil. Apply as needed throughout the day.
Beauty from Within. Combine 2 drops of bergamot, 1 drop of lavender and 1 drop of cedarwood with coconut oil to uplift and see the beautiful woman that you are.
Vital You. Add 4 drops of lemon essential oil and 2 drops of spearmint essential oil to your coconut oil to use when you are on the run during the day.
Yum Yum! Next time you are making some healthy coconut oil chocolate, add one drop of food grade (only –do not ingest any other essential oil) peppermint essential oil to your mix. Sooooo healthy and yummy!
This is just a small sample of what is possible with essential oils and coconut oil. This synergy provides amazing results for beauty, energy and radiant health.
Please note: Most citrus essential oils (e.g. lemon, orange) cause the skin more reactive to sunlight. Do not use citrus oils if you plan to go out into the sun. Also, if you are pregnant, have a medical condition or have any concerns, please consult your qualified health professional before using essential oils.
