There are so many ways to use essential oils - we've covered so many of them this month! And when I find the method and oil that works for me, I like to write it down so I don't forget. The best way to keep track of that information is with a journal.
How to make a journal
Keeping a simple (and pretty!) journal is a great way to keep track of what works for you and your family when you're getting started with essential oils. And it's very simple to make - just a pretty notebook, some adhesive, a printer & some paper.

What to do:
Whenever you find an interesting idea or project using essential oils, write it on a piece of scrap paper 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 into the front of my journal.
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. I love this idea from Life Hacker for creating a simple index - it's perfect for this type of journaling.
