  • Add oils, one by one, to your container of choice. (I used an old essential oil bottle that used to hold one of the oils in this blend.)  You can purchase blue cobalt bottles here, which are thought by some to be the preferred glass for storing essential oils.
  • Shake bottle and use as desired.
  • Use this blend properly diluted with a carrier oil.


1.  Eucalyptus oils have a component that is poisonous. According to this, you would need to ingest 3.5 ml of the oil to be fatal.  So for sure keep these oils out of the reach of children.  For safety reasons, Eucalyptus Citriodora might be the best choice to use in this blend though the big oils companies use Eucalyptus Radiata in theirs. Make sure to read the labels on your essential oils bottles carefully before using.
2.  This oil blend is hot. It can burn sensitive skin, or throat lining, etc. Use with caution and dilute appropriately.  I encourage you to do your own research to find out what dilution works best for you.  This Fractionated Coconut Oil is the most used oil for blending of essential oils.
3.  According to current research, essential oils should not be used topically on children 2 and under.  Also, due to its high 1,8 Cineole constituent, Eucalyptus radiata should not be used on children who have chronic respiratory issues.  This blend is usually considered a "hot" blend and as such should always be diluted for topical use.
