Jade Lemon Essential Oil

Jade Lemon

(Citrus limon eureka var. formosensis)

topical aromatic

Jade Lemon essential oil is distilled from fruit grown in the warm, humid climate of southeast China and is cold pressed from the rind.  These fruits are bright green in color, contrary to the lemon we are all accustomed to, which is yellow.  Jade Lemon has high levels of D Limonene and Carvone. Both of these constituents have been heavily studied for their many benefits – google them to find out more!

While other lemons begin to release some of their oils aromatically as they turn yellow, the jade lemon fruit remains green even in maturity, allowing the concentration of oil to continue within the fruit. The oil is released only after the fruit is picked, giving it a richer and more fragrant aroma.

I made this yesterday.  I’ve never made applesauce so I didn’t know how easy it was.  Peel apples, cut, add essential oils, simmer 30 min.  Mash.  Mmmmmmm.

20150118_122351

Here’s the recipe from Young Living.  I didn’t know how it was going to turn out so I made half a batch.  2 lbs of apples is approximately 6 apples.  I then added 2 drops of lemon eo and one drop of cinnamon bark eo.  And yes, one drop of cinnamon bark flavors this entire bowl!  Always start with a small amount of cinnamon bark and it is a very potent flavor.  As a matter of fact, if you are making a half batch I would maybe dip a toothpick in the cinnamon bark and drag it through the applesauce and then taste test.  You can always add more.

10425052_10153228454456982_8666486256542626495_n

I opted to mash instead of puree because I like my applesauce chunky.  You want some, admit it.  There’s no shame in that.  The drooling is a little bit embarrassing though – pull yourself together and make your own!

BATH SALTS using essential oils

BATH SALTS

What kind of salt do I use?

Sea Salt, Epsom salt, Dead Sea Salt, Kosher salt or a combination of salts. Salts can come in several grain sizes and combining them can make a visually appealing mix. Keep in mind larger salts take longer to dissolve and can be painful on sensitive tushies.

What else can I add?

Some people use 1/4 cup baking soda per 1 cup salt to add a bit of fizz to their bath.  Others add carrier oils such as Jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil for added moisturization.  To be super fancy you can add small bits of dried herbs or flowers for accents (lavender, rose petals, rosemary). Also, these salts make great gifts and adding 1-2 drops of food or soap coloring adds a wonderfully flair!  Note: Be VERY careful about adding coloring to your bath salts as using too much food coloring may stain the skin or your tub.  Find soap colorants on amazon HERE

How many drops of essential oil do I add?

Again, this is mostly personal taste. 5-10 drops of essential oil per cup of salt is a good place to start.   Use approximately 1/2 cup of salt per bath.

How do I mix them?

Add your salts into a stainless steel bowl and add your coloring, baking soda, oil or flower bits first.  Mix well.  Then add your essential oils.  Let oils dry for a couple hours before putting in an air tight glass jar.

How do I  use them?

Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bath salt mix in a regular sized tub.  Pour salt in a warm bath and wait for the salt to dissolve.  Did you know you can also use bath salts in the shower?  Just grab a handful and add a little bit of shower gel and gently massage on your skin to exfoliate dead skin cells.

In addition to using single oils by themselves, here are a few other ideas below:

Try these other combinations once you expand your collection:

Relax: Melaleuca (Tea Tree) and Lavender
