Purification is one of the 10 essential oils that comes in the everyday essential oil kit.·
This oil is a blend of Lemongrass, Melaleuca Alternifolia (a form of tea tree oil), Rosemary, Lavandin, and Citronella.
Some of the many wonderful uses for this oil include, but are not limited to:
-Diffuse to help purify and cleanse the air of environmental impurities including cigarette smoke, musty smells and can be diffused to help calm negative emotions.
-Adding a drop to a cotton ball and place it in smelly tennis shoes, gym bags, bottom of the diaper pail, in your trashcans, or air vents.
-You can also drop a drop or two in the washer to refresh a load of laundry that’s been left in the washer too long (I may or may not know this from experience) haha It’s also great for adding a drop to a wet washcloth and tossing it in the dryer for an extra boost of freshness.
-It’s a great additive to your Spring and Summertime First Aid Kits because it not only works great for an insect repellent, but also works to help soothe bee stings and bug bites.
-This is also great for using as a spot treatment. I had a couple of random spots pop up on my forehead, so I applied a drop to the area and rubbed it on the spots I wanted to treat. When I woke up in the morning the whiteheads were gone and with only 2 applications my skin was nearly cleared up in just 2 days.
I personally love to diffuse purification. I not only enjoy the smell of this oil, but I also like to diffuse for preventive purposes- when sickness is going around and I want to purify the air in our home or help cut down on sick time. As I mentioned above, I’ve also used it in the washer countless times to freshen up a soured load of laundry. It seriously only takes a couple drops for an entire load of laundry. Another great feature about these oils: a little goes a long way. Just drop a couple drops in the washer, turn it to the rinse cycle and let it go. The laundry will be fresh again when it’s done.
I’ve also used this oil in a blend of oils to help clear up my daughters Molluscum. Last summer I noticed some spots on the side of one of my girls and wasn’t sure what it was. I took her to the doctor later that week and he diagnosed it as Mulluscum. Mulluscum is a viral skin infection that can last anywhere from a month to 4 years. If it does not go away on it’s own the only options are to 1. see a dermatologist to get a cream to burn them off or 2. have them surgically removed. Neither of which we wanted to do. When they started to bother her (the doctor said leave them be until they were causing an issue in hopes they’d go away on their own), I decided to turn to oils instead of seeing a dermatologist. Boy are we ever glad we did!
