How To Make Scented Pencils Using Essential Oils

how to make scented pencils

Bubble gum scented Smencils? If this scares you as much as it does me….here is an easy and FUN alternative!

This is a fun project to do with your kiddos! You can even let them choose their own scents by offering them a variety of essential oils to choose from. 




  1. Rub a drop of essential oil between your thumb and pointer fingers.
  2. Take a pencil and run it through your two fingers, coating it in the essential oil.
  3. Roll the coated pencil in a piece of waxed paper, using a rubber band to keep it tightly on the pencil.
  4. Let marinate for a at least 24 hours before using.

Note: For something special, have your kids make a magical “test” pencil, with a scented pencil that they use only for test taking.

Essential Oils For Fitness: Essentially Fit Book Review

In January 2014 I had the pleasure of attending Young Living Essential Oil’s Winter Harvest at their farm in Idaho. A group of YL members worked side-by-side for a week, experiencing the Seed to Seal™ process first hand. Imagine essential oils sleep-away camp! That’s kind of what it was like. And the relationships that developed were quite special.

One of the people I got to know that week was Adam Ringham. From the get-go, I was impressed with his sense of humor, exuberant energy, and “scary smarts.” So, I was not surprised when I found out that he wrote a book! He just published Essentially Fit: Essential Oils for Physical Fitness, Weight Training, and Weight Management

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. It’s content-rich, but also a quick read. It seems a bit oxymoronic, but I gobbled it up, cover to cover, during a delightful spring afternoon….while swinging in a hammock! 

In this book, Adam shares with us specific protocols for using essential oils and products from the Young Living line to help support our fitness regimen and weight loss goals.

using essential oil to loose weigthHis no nonsense approach is refreshing and his conversational style leaves you feeling like you are talking with a good friend who is sharing his success tips after loosing 100 pounds….and now looks like this! 

Many of the essential oils he recommends are ones that I use every day already (lemon, peppermint, Stress Away™, lime, etc.) but now have a whole new realm for them to support me with. 

In addition to explaining why he chose the essential oils and products he did for his protocol, Adam lays out easy-to-follow recommendations that include specific instructions on when and how to use them. Here’s just one example of that specificity: One drop of Valor, 5 minutes before your workout, applied to the chest in a clockwise, circular motion. (Once you read the book, you will understand the WHY behind this!)

Adam takes a holistic perspective in this book.

essential oils for weight lossI like that he address fitness on an emotional level (for example, suggesting the use of affirmations and developing a meditation practice), touches briefly on nutrition (and why you should bust through your resistance to getting a Vitamix!), and why, if you are not having restful sleep, no amount of exercise will help keep you healthy.

Throughout the book he stresses the importance of honoring our bio-individuality.

Adam suggests doing your own research about the essential oils and products that he recommends (which is the best way to empower your own “self-care healthcare” for any reason), and keeping a journal as you integrate the essential oils and products into your fitness regimen so you can monitor what’s working and why. 

After hearing Adam extol the virtues of the Ultra Young Spray in the book, I was disappointed to find out that it is not currently available from Young Living. #ultratease And I was surprised that he did not mention NingXia NITRO, as this is my standard go-to before I head out for a hike each day. 

But, if you are looking to partner with essential oils and co-create your optimal fitness level, you definitely want Essentially Fit in your wellness library!
