What is it with unicorns lately? There is now unicorn themed everything! I decided a unicorn themed essential oil project was naturally way past due. You guys. This is such a delicious project. You'll want to make it for all your favorite besties and of course keep some for yourself. Because, who wouldn't want to feel like a magical unicorn? Ha!
Really though, the oils in this are seriously high-vibe. Not only do they smell amazing, they also help you feel really great. Don't get scared by the different oils in the recipe. It might sound like a crazy mixture, but believe me, it works!
Check out the oils in the spray and cologne:
Ylang Ylang is the star of the blend and helps you feel playful, free, confident, and enthusiast.
Grapefruit is energizing, enlivening, and helps promote positive body-image & self-respect.
Ginger is an empowering oil that helps you feel like you can take on your life purpose. It helps give you courage.
Bergamot is an oil that is great for self-confidence, joy, optimism, and self-acceptance.
Clary Sage works to help you see more clearly. Great for strengthening intuition and imagination.
Frankincense oil helps you feel truth, wisdom, connection, openness, and acceptance.
Patchouli keeps you grounded, in the present moment, yet encourages freedom.
Lemongrass is cleansing and helps you release stuck emotions or things that aren't in your highest good. It encourages movement.
Eucalyptus oil promotes an overall sense of wellness, is centering, and encouraging.
Pretty awesome oils right? They are all great individually but the synergy of their components really is magical. It helps you feel upbeat & positive, yet grounded and able to tackle your big dreams and go after your soul desires. Everyone has a unique spark inside them. This helps you not be afraid to be yourself and shine. Like the unicorn you are (wink). Since I made this, it's been my go-to daily scent. I just makes me happy. I hope you like it too!
- 20 drops Ylang Ylang
- 10 drops Grapefruit
- 10 drops Ginger
- 8 drops Bergamot
- 5 drops Sandalwood (Hawaiian or Indian)
- 5 drops Clary Sage
- 5 drops Frankincense
- 2 drops Patchouli
- 2 drops Lemongrass
- 2 drops Eucalyptus
- Carrier/Dilution of Choice (See below.)
For the Body Spray
- Add the essential oils to a 8 oz. glass spray bottle.
- Add 1 tablespoon Witch Hazel or Vodka
- *Add 1 tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin (optional - helps the scent last longer, don't add if you want to spray it on clothes/fabric)
- *Add 1 tablespoon Fractionated Coconut Oil (optional - helps dilute and moisturize the skin, don't add if you want to spray it on clothes/fabric)
- Fill the rest of the bottle up with water, leaving about an inch of room at the top. Add the spray nozzle and shake. You'll want to shake the bottle before spritzing your skin.
For the Cologne
- Add the essential oils to a 10 mL glass roller bottles.
- Fill the rest of the way with a carrier oil of your choice. I like fractionated coconut oil for this.
I have been using both the spray and the cologne. I'll use the spray before getting dressed and then throughout the day if I need a boost, I'll use the cologne roller.
Note: A few of the oils in this blend need caution when using before going into the sun. Grapefruit & Bergamot in particular make the skin photosensitive and can it can burn easier when in UV rays. The amount of those oils in the amount of the liquid in the body spray is an adequate dilution ratio for most people to avoid problems. But, be cautious if you are super sensitive to the sun. I'm a redhead and might skip this body spray before heading the the beach or other similar exposure. The cologne isn't diluted quite as much as the spray so I'd be careful to avoid sun/UV exposure for 12 hours after using.
Unicorn Vibes Label Download
How can you have something called Unicorn Vibes and not have a super cute label to go with it? It's impossible. So, I created a download for you. It contains a label design for the spray & the cologne (fits on an 8.5 x 11 inch size paper) and some cute extras to fancy up your project if you want to give it as a gift. Head over to the Printable Label section of my site and grab the download. I'd love to see what you do with it!
