Today we are combining our love of Halloween and the fall with our love of essential oil and diffusers. This is an ADORABLE idea for October festivities!
This is a really fun way to get your whole family together interacting with the oils. You can choose the pumpkins together, measure them and make sure they are the right size. You can also carve them together and even decide what amazing scent you’d like your pumpkin to diffuse.
Step 1: Select your pumpkins. You want to be sure to select pumpkins that your diffuser will easily fit in. Make sure to double check the size. You don’t want it so small or so exact that your diffuser ends up covered in slime.
Step 2. Use a black marker to draw your pumpkin face/design. Essential Oil Tip: Lemon oil erases permanent marker, so don't worry about making mistakes.
Now, one of the downsides to carving pumpkins is that they can tend to mold in warm weather. Depending upon where you live in the country, this can be a real issue. Luckily, essential oils can help to solve this problem.
Step 3. Use Thieves spray to spray the insides of your pumpkin to preserve it and make it last longer.
We have chosen to use our Dew Drop diffuser but you can use whatever diffuser you have around the house. This is a cold diffuser so the molecules stay intact and you get all the benefit of having essential oils in the air!
Step 4: Drill a hole into the back of the pumpkin as a place to put in the cord. Once you have your pumpkin all cleaned up, you are going to place the base of the diffuser into the pumpkin.
Step 5: Next, add the water. Tap water works the best with the DewDrop diffuser.
Step 6. Now add your essential oils.
If you are holding an indoor party, consider diffusing this amazing pumpkin spice blend: 2 drops of Nutmeg, 2 drops of Tangerine, and 2 drops of Cinnamon. If you put your pumpkin on your porch, diffuse peppermint or Thieves OR you could diffuse purification to keep away seasonal pests if you live in a really warm area of the country.
As many of you know, Young Living has recently made some major and exciting changes to the Premium Starter Kit. Welcome our newest PSK oils - Raven and Citrus Fresh!

Soothing, comforting and refreshing; Raven creates a cooling sensation when applied topically to the chest and throat, and is excellent to use during the fall and winter months.

For years Young Living members have enjoyed the benefits of Blue Tansy essential oil in blends such as Valor®, Peace & Calming®, and JuvaFlex.
