Gardening Tips using Essential Oils!


Gardening Tips using Essential Oils!  

Gardening Tips - just in time!   Bookmark this post or save the images so you'll have it ready as you need it.  Using "plant based" on plants is the way to go!

Below are tons of gardening tips, but first, let's start out with a savvy tip on re-using your product soak!  Save the water your next batch of produce that you cleaned with the Thieves Fruit and Veggie Soak(if you soaked in a bucket) Then pour it over anything in the garden!  It helps with bugs and its a great "meal" for those plants!  




BUGS


It’s no secret that bugs can totally ruin your garden plans. From eating your plants to taking a bite out of you, they can really dampen any gardening dreams!

 You could use insecticides or sprays made from harsh chemicals, but certainly at a cost to you and the environment. They can lead to bioaccumulation of toxins in your body (and even in your plants) that are linked to chronic illness and disease! 

So besides the tip above, here are few DIY ideas to try!


You can also just use a few drops of "oils in soils" to help as well. Check out these ideas!


Some bugs are the kind you WANT in your garden. Here are a few oils to ATTRACT what you need.


And if you happen to have Fire Ants (shudder!) then this is a recipe for those creeps!

Four legged furry garden "helpers":

But what about things that like to dig up your garden?  Such as your dog, cat, or squirrels etc.  We want to keep them at bay without harming them, so here is a trick:




COMPANION GARDENING: 

If you’ve been around the garden scene a while you’ve heard of companion planting. And if you haven’t heard, let me enlighten you!

 Some plants play well together; others do not. This is because every plant has certain nutrients that it uses from the soil for growth and fruit production. Also, plants excrete certain byproducts back into the soil that can either help or hinder your harvest!

 If you grow two types of plants next to each other that both rely strongly on nitrogen for growth, they will compete and overuse the nitrogen in the soil and starve each other out! Corn and tomatoes are an example of plants that don’t play nice.

 Conversely, if you plant two types of plants next to each other that eat different nutrients they will work together to promote each other’s growth. A good example of this is tomatoes and carrots. They work together in the soil. Therefore, plant them next to each other and it will result in a more bountiful harvest. 

 So what does this have to do with essential oils? Well, essential oils are made from plants so consider using oils in place of your companion plants. For example, if you are looking to plant Lavender next to Green Beans, grab your Lavender essential oil instead. Create a “Companion Spray” to use on the soil and leaves of the plant using this guide. Add 10-15 drops of the corresponding essential oil to a 4 oz. glass spray bottle. Top with distilled water; shake before each use. So easy! 




POLLINATORS!

Did you know that some plants self-pollinate? Fruits like peppers can stand alone and produce fruit. Not every plant does that. Lots of them need the help of cross-pollination between male and female plants!

 Know who helps with that?! POLLINATORS!

 Bees and butterflies are some of the friendliest insects you can get into your garden! Without them you’ll have measly harvests and be disappointed that all your hard work didn’t result in the delicious produce you wanted!

 Pollinators are attracted to the smell of flowers and luckily some of our wonderful essential oils are distilled from flowers… so convenient! 

 Create a spray using essential oils to spritz on the flowering buds of your garden to encourage pollinators to come in and get the job done!


WEEDS and FUNGUS:
Ahh weeds.... at least you are good for helping us exercise!  And as temping as perhaps grabbing the Round-Up may be, you know deep down inside that you really don't want to breathe that in, get it on your fingers or toes, or on your pets.  You finally get MOST of those things under control, and then you notice that some plants that you over-watered and under-sunned and somehow got a plant fungus.  Here are a few tips! I like to add vinegar to the weed recipes.  Just be careful when using around your grass when using vinegar:

 


TIME TO HARVEST!
Your work is done, and now it's time to enjoy some of the fruits (or flowers) of your labors!  
If you don't own our exceptiona
l Fruit and Veggie Soakwhy not make your own?

Does your harvest like to attract a few hitch hikers?  Here is a diffuser recipe to help discourage them from hanging out with you in the house once you bring your goods inside:


Aren't oils fun?  I love all of the uses! Let me know how all of these ideas work out for you!  Before I sign off, here are a few last minute ideas for you!  Labels for these sprays, and a Chicken Cook spray for those that raise chickens for organic cage free eggs 🐣

LABELS:

Just download the image and print this on waterproof sticker label paper (the full sheet kind) like 

And finally, Chicken Coop Spray!  Great for the smell and the bugs.  And if you own the oil blend Abundance - add some of that in - you may have a few extra eggs coming your way! 


I hope this was helpful ☺️. And if you still don't have the
what are you waiting for!

Welcome to the 2022 Young Living Spring Launch!


Spring Launch - it’s here!!! 🌸🌸

It's time! Time for our Spring Launch!  It's a bit less than usual because Young Living is working hard on continued improvements to our web site, strengthening our core line and supplies and getting back to basics, which include a good strong stock when nature allows keeping our exceptional essential oils and cbd front and center!  

We do have a few fun new things, the return of a NEEDED old fave, and, sadly, a reduction of our makeup line.  I'm SO sad about the makeup line scale down, but we are not a makeup company. We are a full service wellness company and we have some makeup!  However, I DID write Young Living requesting that a few of the discontinued things come back.  If you feel as I do, be sure to send them an encouraging letter (productsupport@youngliving.com)

✨ SAVVY MINERALS MAKEUP SALE ✨
The Savvfy makeup line is having a makeover of its own! Here you will see many of our products going on huge sale. The makeup is 40% off and the brushes are 50% off, so be sure to grab all your favorites! Going forward, our Savvy line is moving to just the essentials:





-Primers (hydrating and mattifying)
-Makeup remover wipes
-A couple eyeshadow palettes
-Liquid concealers
-Liquid foundations
-Volumizing and lengthening mascaras
-Lip Luxe
-Poppyseed scrub 
-Silicone brush cleaner set 
-Several brushes (Full Coverage Liquid Foundation Brush, Concealer Brush, Blending Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Dual Lash Brush, Blending Sponge, Solid Brush Cleanser
& Silicone Cleansing Pad)

I am SO SAD because this is my favorite make up ever and now I may have to find something else I love and am comfortable using.  However, Young Living has said this sale will help them evaluate if the items on the chopping block will get a second life!  I'm hopeful, but either way , I'm grateful that YL is working hard to prioritize what we do well….our oils! We can’t be the expert at everything. I’m using this sale to stock up on my favorites because Savvy lasts so long it will buy me some time to find the clean mineral products that I can’t buy from YL. Fingers crossed!  Hoping our dry powders live to see 2023!

Enjoy, and HAPPY SHOPPING!
