Starting Your Own Etsy Shop With Essential Oils

It might be an interest in making something or an interest in making money. Whatever the reasons are, creating your own shop on Etsy is incredibly easy to do once you know what you want to sell. But for some people out there, finding the right thing to sell can be hard; especially if time, creativity, or money are limited. Thankfully you can still create a successful Etsy shop with the help of essential oils. Essential oil can be blended together for a number of benefits and are a relatively easy and low cost way to get started on Etsy without the high barriers of entry that other goods demand. Here are some popular essential oil mixes that you can use for Etsy success.

Day to day life can get us feeling stressed and worn out. The following recipe is perfect for those that can’t keep their cool and need a calming detox.

The great thing about the following recipe is that there are quite a large number of different essential oils that you can use, meaning you can mix-n-match and make some exciting blends to keep away those pesky bugs.

An insect repellent will use any of the follow essential oils:

·         Cinnamon

·         Citronella

·         Clove

·         Eucalyptus

Many of these essential oils are featured in the Anjou Essential Oil Gift Set available here.

Once you have selected the essential oil of choice, follow the next steps to make a large mix that you can sell in bulk:

1.       Add 2 ounces of distilled or boiled water

2.       Add 1.5 ounces of witch hazel or vodka

3.       Add 30-50 drops of the essential oil of choice. You can add more oils for a stronger spray but you might need to adjust the amount of drops used if the potency is too strong

4.       Shake to mix, then package.
