Organizing your essential oil recipes

Whenever you find an interesting idea or project using essential oils, write it on a post-it note and store it in your journal until you've made the product yourself or tried the tip.

After you've found out whether it works for you, your family, and your needs, write it in your journal, or print it out if it's from an online source and glue it into your notebook.

After awhile you'll have a journal filled with tips and ideas for your own DIY products and remedies using essential oils.

I like to keep a list of safety tips and dilution ratios in mine, right at the front, so it's always quick to find. I made a simple chart, printed it out, and glued it to the front of my journal.

For an even easier journal - use a binder and page protectors. Print out your favorite recipes and store them in your binder. Grab the simple skin care recipes below to get started!

Creating an Index

When you find your journal is getting full and you will want to create a table-of-contents or some way to keep track of where all those tips are located. Keep a running list in the front of your binder or use divider tabs to create sections when your journal starts getting full.
