If you’ve dabbled a bit in essential oils, you’ve noticed that there are a lot of different oils that have similar properties. Different oils can be carefully blended to maximize their individual capabilities, and these are called synergy blends.
For example - tea tree and lavender are both antibacterial and are great for acne. Tea tree is also an anti-inflammatory and decongestant, while lavender promotes relaxation and healing. Mix the two together for a facial steam and voila! a synergy blend that is great for cleaning your pores and evening
out your skin tone.
There are tons of possibilities when it comes to synergy blends. Need one to brighten your mood? Try our Citrus Splash. Would you rather not suffer through those pesky headaches? Headache Magic does the trick. But possibly the most versatile, powerful, multitasking blend ever is our
Seven impressive essential oils, all of which are incredible on their own, come together to fight germs and bacteria - keeping you and your family safe from things like mold, viruses and more.
You may have heard of the popular ‘thieves’ oil, and this Germ Ninja blend is comparable in strength and quality. This unapologetic destroyer of all things grimy can be used in a diffuser, as a topical application, for cleaning surfaces in your home, and so much more.
It would be impossible to list all the ways it can be used, but here are some common ways to use it every day:
- Diffuse in your home for a warm, spicy aroma and to purify the air
- Rub (diluted) into skin to release tension and muscle pain
- Use as a spray wherever you need to deodorize, such as in your gym bag, car, shoes, laundry room, bathroom, garbage cans, etc
- Put a few drops in an empty dishwasher or laundry machine and run it to clean out any sour smell,mold or mildew
- Use a drop to remove splinters
- Use with lavender hydrosol as a DIY hand sanitizer
- Use it with a compress to reduce the symptoms of fever
- Add 4 drops of Germ Ninja to 4oz of water in a spray bottle for an all over surface cleaner
Keep in mind that this blend is a concentrate, meaning that it should be mixed with water or diluted with a carrier oil before using. This is an extremely powerful blend, so you won’t need much to get the job done. ALWAYS start with a small amount and add more as needed.
We recommend doing a patch test on surfaces and/or skin before using, especially on wood floors or sensitive skin.
We know you’ll love this blend as much as we do! We would love to hear about all the different ways you use it in the comments.
