Essential oils and aromatherapy have been a key part of my life and overall well-being for several years. There are so many wonderful reasons to add these natural oils in your life. Today I am sharing three! Find out how you can try them yourself!
For me, essential oils are, well essential. They are all natural, they smell great, and are good for my body, home, and more!
It’s easy to see why they are a staple in my home. I am a self-taught Aromatherapist. I started learning about aromatherapy several years ago when I was looking for ways to manage depression. I found that oils could boost my mood and they also had metaphysical properties that would benefit my soul. It was the mind-body-soul solution that I was looking for.
These oils are extracted from plants and contain properties that can help your skin, clean your counters, some oils can even keep fleas off your pets.
Essential oils remind me of magic. Who would think that a drop of oil would be so powerful?
Peppermint is great for digestive issues, think Peppermint tea. Also, ants hate it! If you are having a picnic create a peppermint scented barrier to keep them from stealing your crumbs!
Lavender is my favorite oil of all. It’s an all-purpose oil. I love adding a few drops to my bath, a face mask, and my lotion. It is so soothing and relaxing. Perfect after a long day! It’s also great to cook with. I got to visit a lavender farm here in North Carolina and there was Lavender everything. I loved the lavender lemonade. It was such a great experience.
My Favorite Use for Lavender
I will place a couple drops in my hands and rub them together then cover my face and inhale. Deeply and slowly. This is so relaxing and calming, especially before meditating. Check out how Lavender oil saved my lip! It really is an all-purpose oil.
Trying Essential Oils
Are you ready to try essential oils for yourself? I love sharing the wonders of essential oils with others, which is the reason I became a dōTERRA Representative! Not only can I get the oils I love and use daily, but I can also help others do the same. I have samples to share so that you can try essential oils in your home. They are:
This blend of oils helps with breathing and also with getting a good night’s rest.
It has a really fresh aroma, that opens up my airways. It’s calming.
I put some in a diffuser to let the smell fill the air and added a drop of Lavender to it.
This is also recommended for allergies.
This has been my best friend the past week. I took it internally to help boost my immune system (I felt a cold coming on), but I also used it to clean around the house.
I love that it’s safe enough for me, but also strong enough to clean. With a busy toddler, I’m careful about what I use to clean.
It has a great cinnamon scent that is perfect to scent your home for the holidays.
This oil blend is good for your digestive tract.
All the oils found in this are teas that my Mother makes. It’s great for upset stomachs and to get rid of bloat.
It smells good, like Fennel seeds.
All of these blends smell amazing and have many uses.
