The Lysol vs Thieves Experiment (and a DIY Thieves Cleaner Recipe!) | Naturally Oily Adventures

Right around the time I started falling in love with Thieves oil and all it could do I stumbled upon an experiment that another YL member did comparing Thieves oil to Lysol spray and the results were astounding to me! It is too good not to share!!! This is not my experiment, it was conducted by Elisa Fantaci Collins from Cape Coral, FL and shared with her permission. Lysol vs. Thieves Experiment Elisa used a pre-packaged bacteria kit that you can buy online. This is what she said about the…

Young Living MyYL.com | Celia McKechnie, Naturally Oily Adventures

For my next DIY Thieves inspired recipe I thought I would share my DIY Foaming Hand Soap Recipe! I've been using a DIY hand soap recipe for about a year but have never had a foaming soap dispenser and my recipe has never passed muster with the husband. He complained often about it and would even walk into the kitchen to wash his hands with dishwashing liquid rather than use my homemade soap! So I knew when I got my Everyday Oils collection that I wanted to modify my recipe and invest in a…

Young Living MyYL.com | Celia McKechnie, Naturally Oily Adventures

In 2013 I had to have oral surgery, a gum graft behind my lower front teeth to correct a receding gum line… Having only had 2 cavities in my entire life (don't hate me) I was devastated. (Interesting side note: according to my dental hygienist, apparently people who are not prone to cavities are often prone to periodontal disease… who knew?). As a result of my gum loss I developed sensitivity to heat/cold as well as when brushing my teeth. So like all good little patients I began using the…

Edited to add the following on 3/15/16: *Note: Carrot Seed and SPF – It is commonly reported that Carrot Seed essential oil contains an SPF of 38-40. However, most of these posts cite (if they offer any citation at all) a study done in India that researched a natural sunscreen that contained Daucus carota and "other ingredients." In this study, the natural sunscreen contained an overall spf of 38-40. However, Robert Tisserand (the man who literally wrote the book on essential oil safety)…

Is your hand sanitizer drying out your hands? Here's an alcohol free DIY Thieves Hand Sanitizer recipe! | Naturally Oily Adventures

I don't often use hand sanitizer as I'm a firm believer in the power of soap and water (plus, exposure to a little bit of germs is good for building up the immune system). However, I work with people daily and people get sick. So I do tend to keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in my counseling office to de-germ after sick clients have been in for session. But I've never liked how dry the alcohol in hand sanitizer makes my hands. Plus, if you have eczema or get cracks in your skin during winter…

So I'm super excited to have Thieves oil in my collection now and decided to make this weekend's theme all about this amazing blend because there is just so much you can do with it! You may be wondering why it is called Thieves oil and the story is actually quite interesting! The Legend of the 4 Thieves says that during the Bubonic Plague in the 15th century 4 thieves ran around Europe robbing plague victims of their valuables but somehow never contracted the virus. When finally caught the…

**Update: Since I wrote this original product review, Younique has reformulated their Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. Please read my more recent product review of the "new and improved" formula here: "New and Improved" with toxic chemicals and no longer my perfect mascara I think makeup artists are amazing and I love to see before and after transformations - they truly are artists! But when it comes to makeup, as much as I love to see my smooth, scar-free complexion and dramatic smoky eyes…
