I started using essential oils about a year ago. They have been very helpful for me to clean up my personal care routine. Citrus oils smell amazing like winter in Florida. Ococtea essential oil smells similar to cinnamon and is extracted from an Ecuadorian tree. Ocotea has the highest level of alpha humulene of any Young Living essential oil.
I love the combo of the Ococtea and the citrus oils and I know you and your family will too. Remember I only recommend Young Living essential oils becasue of they have the seed to seal guarantee which means, in part, that they have their own farms and distilleries where they oversee every part of the process. Also Young Living has a 25 year track record of high quality unadulterated oils. Order Here.
Essential Oil Recipes: How to Make Perfume
Special equipment: 1 roller bottle
5 drops lime essential oils
5 drops tangerine essential oils
5 drops Ococtea essential oils
Place the essential oils in the bottom of the roller bottle and top off with your choice of carrier oil such as avocado or sweet almond oil. Return the lid and shake slightly for the air bubble to disperse the essential oil. Keep in a cool spot to preserve the quality of the oils for longer (avoid hot car storage).
Roll it on your skin in the morning before work or anytime you need to feel and smell your best. If you are going to be in direct sun for a long time best to roll it on under clothes as citrus oils can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to essential oils and it is best to be creative and follow whatever scents combo comes to mind. Use the same carrier oil ratio in the same size roller bottle then add:
