  1. Love this blog. So much information . Great newbie blog, and great refresher. I’m one year into my oils journey, and still learning. It’s incredible how God created plants have just what our bodies need.

  2. I love Plant Therapy Essential Oils! I just made a mix of 2 drops each of Rosemary, Lavender, Geranium, Tea Tree, Myrrh, and Helichrysum with sweet almond carrier oil, as a “wound/cut” remedy.

  3. I’m new to this whole essential oil thing… is it safe for pets (a dog) to use the oils/baking soda in the carpet before vacuuming?

    Thanks!!

    1. We do not currently have anyone on staff who is educated in using essential oils/baking soda on or around pets. We do know that for cats and other small animals some essential oils can be toxic so it is best to check with your vet or someone who specializes in this area for more information.

      You may find also this book helpful, “Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals” by Kristen Leigh Bell, in gathering more information on using essential oils with animals.

  4. My 2 year old grandson that lives with me still wears a diaper. I sprinkled baking soda in the bottom of my trash can and then used about 4 drops of the Odor Zapper and about 3 of Spearmint (both kidsafe). Helps a lot with the odors that can build, even with timely removal of the trash.

  5. I realize this is an older post, but wanted to share that I just sprinkle a few drops of peppermint oil onto the carpet in my car (’99 Regal) and it smells divine for the whole week.

  6. Well i never knew we could do so much with carrier oils. The best of these were to use them as facial moisturizer, fight germs, wash fruits and most of all as a deodorizer. I started buying the Best Carrier Oil to try all the possible ways. Thank You!!!

  7. This was an EXCELLENT blog post! Just wanted you to know! Also, the one about ingesting oils was really great, and very informative. Thank you for writing these and keeping us in the up and up!
