Storing Essential Oils for Longevity + A GIVEAWAY!



All my oily friends, it's time to up your game when it comes to storing your precious oils. You've spent a ton of money on your stash, so you might as well protect it.

Facial products that are infused with essential oils should be stored in glass jars or glass bottles. Proper storage in a dark, airtight glass bottle gives you a longer shelf life and sustained quality on. If I'm putting an essential oil infused product on my face, especially if they are homemade, I want to make sure they last a long time and don't degrade.


The two things that cause a natural product (like essential oils and food) to degrade quickly are air and light. This isn't news. The ancient Egyptians invented deep violet glass thousands of years ago and preserved precious oils and herbs for centuries in tombs. This is the philosophy behind storing essential oils in amber glass bottles. We have great glass storage solutions available to us, guys!


 



Infinity Jars' special pigmented glass is thicker and more durable than your standard glass; it is smell-proof, blocks harmful UV light and is visually discreet. These glass jars can actually slow down the decaying process of organic matter while maintaining the freshness of whatever is inside. The jar lid systems, the screw-top and glass-on-glass lid, are completely airtight.


What sets Infinity Jars apart from all other glass jars is that it blocks out all harmful visible light rays while selectively allowing infrared and UVA rays.

 


I made my own facial toner in a 30mL glass spray bottle, a facial serum in a 50mL push pump glass bottle, and an essential oil perfume in a 15mL steel roller bottle. The recipes require some basic, affordable Young Living essential oils that most oilers have in their stash.


Facial Toner
3 drops Lavender
2 drops Frankencense
1 tsp. V6 Carrier Oil
Witch Hazel (choose the alcohol free with aloe type)
30mL glass spray bottle

Directions: Put the essential oils and V6 Carrier Oil in the spray bottle first, then fill the rest of the way up with Witch Hazel. Place the sprayer on top, and enjoy! Shake gently before each use.


Facial Serum
20 drops Lavender
20 drops Frankincense
10 drops Geranium
approx. 2 T. V6 Carrier Oil, or another carrier oil of your choice (some like sweet almond or jojoba)
50mL push pump glass bottle

Directions: Put the essential oils in the pump bottle first, then fill the rest of the way up with your carrier oil. Place the pump on the bottle, and enjoy! You should apply this serum to a clean face. I apply this at night after washing my face, and sometimes it can double as a moisturizer. Just shake gently before each use.

If you use a different size pump bottle than the one I recommend, you'll have to adjust the essential oil-to-carrier oil ratio as to not have too much carrier oil.


"Walk in the Woods" perfume
5 drops Lavender
4 drops Lemon
3 drops Vetiver
V6 Carrier Oil
15mL steel roller bottle

Directions: Put the essential oils in the roller bottle first, then fill the rest of the way up with V6 Carrier Oil. Place the steel roller ball on top, and enjoy!


When Tania sent my Infinity Jars, they shipped USPS Priority 2-Day and she provided a tracking number via email. My package was impeccably packaged (it's the little things, guys!): Hand labeled and with sturdy shipping materials. Although, I do wish the shipping materials were compostable instead of plastic.


When browsing their site, I became particularly interested in the Variety Packs. These are packages  that make sense in terms of variety of styles and sizes, with an additional savings to reward customers for buying multiple products at one time.

You can win a $30 credit to spend on any of the Infinity Jars products by leaving a comment below. We'll randomly select a winner on April 20th, 2017.

Well, first I'd recommend learning more about the Young Living Wholesale Membership. If you're going to invest in some oils, you might as well get them at the wholesale price (24% off retail!). To set up your wholesale account, all you need to do is:



1. Go here to enter in your informationEnter this Sponsor/Enroller ID number1880846
2. Choose a starter kit. (When I started, I bought the Premium Starter Kit and am SO happy I did!)
3. Optional: Sign up for Essential Rewards, which is a monthly auto-ship program. This is totally optional, and you can choose to sign up for the monthly auto-ship later, if you want.
4. Once you enter your payment for your starter kit, you're set! Just sit back and relax until your kit is delivered.



If a wholesale account isn't for you, and you just want to order a few oils to get started, just go here to set up your retail account, then feel free to browse the products. Just be sure to enter in this ID number when you set up your retail account: 1880846

  2. I've never heard of Infinity Jars before, but this is so great to find out about! I've been making my own makeup primer with witch hazel, glycerin, and a couple of essential oils for one or two years now, but I've always had to make it in such small batches. I may just have to check Infinity Jars out! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I love these recipes! As soon as I'm done here, I'm making the perfume!

    I will have to give the facial products a try as well. As, I'm trying to get away from all the gunk that is in a lot of them!

    1. V6 is a plant-based carrier oil that Young Living offers. The purpose of using it is to dilute an essential oil. I'd love to help you get your hands on some - let me know!

  15. I was married for 16 years to a loving mother and wife. We had 2 children together who are now 11 & 13. I reconnected with an old girlfriend from college on Facebook and we began an affair and I left my wife. The woman I had an affair with is a wonderful woman and I love her too and our kids had begun accepting the situation and my wife has kind of moved on, but not in love with the man she is seeing. I thought I fell out of love with my wife and I felt terrible about what I did to her - she is a good woman and I don't know what came over me. I decided to try and get her back and I was recommended to Lord Zakuza for help to get reunited with my wife and within 48 hours after I made contact with Lord Zakuza my wife decided to work things out with me and now we are back together with our children living as one happy family. I really don't know the words to use in appreciation of what Lord Zakuza did for me but I will say thank you sir for reuniting I and my family back. For those in trying times with their marriages or relationship can browse through his website via: https: lordzakuzaspells.com or WhatsApp Lord Zakuza for help or text with this number +1 740 573 9483 or you can send him an email to Lordzakuza7 @gmail. com
