Today I wanted to go a little off topic and chat with you gals about my favorite essential oils. Because I am so hooked on them and I spend so much time talking about them in real life, I figured it was time to share on here. I know not everyone is into oils, so I promise I am not offended if this doesn’t interest you. For a long time, I wasn’t either. Now, I use them daily, in multiple ways.
I actually became aware of oils a few years ago when I was researching ways to get my kids to sleep. Lavender was the first oil I purchased, and we used it every night on the kids before bed. I knew zero about oils at the time and stopped using it without a thought.
Flash forward to this Summer. I was nine months pregnant and getting a pedicure, casually chatting with the woman sitting next to me. She was a clinical research nurse who had an extensive medical background with children. We were chatting about Avery, and she recommended that I look into essential oils. This was coming from a medical professional, so I really took it to heart. She recommended Young Living Essential Oils to me, going so far as to write information down for me.
I immediately ordered a Starter Kit and never looked back. Flash forward a few months,and we use oils multiple times a day in our home. I could ramble on and on about why I love oils and how I use them, but I am going to stick to my favorites today.
My Favorite Essential Oils
Cedarwood // This is perfect for all things cozy. It has a muskier scent to it, and makes me feel like I’m snuggled up in a warm blanket and goes into almost every night diffuser blend I use.
Joy // This smells just like the name implies, joyful. I diffuse this during the day on its own, dab a little on as a perfume and use it on our wool dryer balls.
Lavender // This is the most top of mind oil for many people. It was the first oil I ever used, and still one used daily in our house. We diffuse it nightly, I use it on our dryer balls, in home made cleaner, put a couple of drops in the kids’ baths, and almost every roller blend I make. Such a great, versatile oil.
Lemon // Another super versatile oil. I diffuse this often for its cheery scent, on the dryer balls, in house cleaner, etc.
Orange // This smells so good and blends well with just about every other oil. It’s just as great for refreshing citrus blends as it is for cozy Winter mixes.
Purification // This is great for cleaning mixes or to diffuse in stinky places. I really, really like this scent personally.
Stress Away // This may be my favorite oil ever. It smells so good. I diffuse this daily, day and night. This is the kids’ favorite as well. This is diffusing in mine and Avery’s rooms nightly, and in almost every roller ball I make.
Thieves // So good for so much, cozy blends and cleaning. This is a great, versatile oil.
I have been trying to remove toxins from our home, but I will save that for another post. Plus, the oils smell so good and give you control over creating your own customs scents.
