Essential oils are the volatile, aromatic compounds that come from plants, flowers, roots, etc. Basically the absolute pure goodness made by mother nature.
Have you ever smelled a bouquet of fresh flowers? Or rubbed a piece of mint leaf between your fingers & noticed the release of an ah-mazing scent? What you're smelling is are the aromatic qualities of essential oils (pretty amazing, right?). Far more than just a fragrance, essential oils have been used for thousands of years to aid in health, beauty & even cooking.
One key thing to make clear is not all essential oils are created equal. There doesn't currently exist any kind of regulation on essential oils (for better or worse), so please do your homework on which are of the HIGHEST & PUREST quality. For instance, those from your local pharmacy, or even health food store, might not be what they seem. Essential oils can be labeled "100% essential oil," but contain synthetic ingredients and fillers. Also to consider are the ethics & sustainability of the company you go with: How & where were the oils sourced? What is the relationship with the farmer? What is that plant's indigenous place of origin? Are they harvested at peak time of year to yield the best quality? What types of 3rd party testing is done to ensure quality?

If you're like me and don't like the idea of chemicals and other un-natural nasties in your wellness toolbox, make-up and skincare, then essential oils might be a great new angle for you to explore with your health & wellness routine (both for your body and home).
Are you looking support with: getting a good night's sleep, healthy glowing skin, frequent head tension, supporting your immune system especially in the winter months, creating more zen in your life, getting energized, healthy digestion?
If you said "YES" to any of the above, there's an oil for that.
It's pretty empowering to have these amazing natural tools at your fingertips.
My favorite & most frequent way of using essential oils is diffusing. Most diffusers use a combo of water and essential oil to send aromatic vapor into the air. Within just a few seconds you can feel a shift in mood or disposition.
A few of my favorites:
- Smell Like A Spa: Eucalyptus + Peppermint + Melaleuca (tea tree) + Lavender
- Ground Down: Frankincense + Lavender
- Get Energized (AM Pick-Me-Up): Peppermint + Lemon
- So Fresh & So Clean: Grapefruit + Wild Orange + Lemon
Really there's no "wrong," so you can mix and match based on what smells you're drawn to.
I do this one almost every night before I go to sleep, and occasionally in the morning if I know I'm heading into a big day:
Add a drop of carrier oil (coconut oil, avocado oil, etc) into your hand with 1 drop Frankincense + 1 drop Lavender. Massage into shoulders. Repeat onto the bottoms of your feet while giving yourself a nice foot massage. Mmmmm dreamy.
Ok so I have 2 daily, must-have beauty products I've created with essential oils:
- DIY Shampoo & Conditioner with a few drops of Melaleuca (tea tree, which invigorating & great for a dry scalp).
- Super Hydrating Skin Salve which has a combo of beeswax, coconut oil, avocado oil, vitamin e, and essential oils like Frankincense, Lavender, Melaleuca, Helichrysum (plus a few more I've tailored to my personal skin needs like Geranium, Lemongrass, Aborvitae, Cedarwood, and Juniper Berry - full recipe to be posted soon). My extra-sensitive dry skin loves it!
Immune support - Massage the Protective Blend to the bottom of your feet, or diffuse a few drops into the air.
Stomach discomfort - Massage the Digestive Blend onto your belly.
Clear breathing - Open the cap of your Respiratory Blend & gently inhale, or diffuse a few drops into the air.
Sore muscles - Massage on some Soothing Blend to the area of need.
If you're conscious about what goes into your body (food) and onto your body (beauty products), then you might also have concerns about other chemicals being used around the house, specifically in the kitchen.
My favorite All-Purpose Cleaner: Add 1/4C white vinegar + 1 3/4C water + 30 drops essential oil (I like the Protective Blend or a combo of Peppermint + Lemon) to a 16oz glass spray bottle, shake and off you go.
