I LOVE essential oils! There are so many amazing benefits in having them in my household. They are all natural with no harsh chemicals. Essential oils smell incredible! I use them for cleaning. They also aid in my overall health.
There are plenty of different companies out there who distribute essential oils. After TONS of reseach, I decided for myself and for my family that I would go with Young Living. I really trust the company and LOVE their products.
Time to narrow down which essential oils are my favorites. This is extremely difficult when there are so many sensational ones out there. However, I did finally manage to come up with my top five, and how I use them.
Lemon oil is always in my house. Most of the time I have two bottles, one in the kitchen (lemon vitality which you can injest) and one in my bathroom. I use lemon for a variety of things. I put a couple of drops in my water, which gives me a boost before I go work out. Lemon also helps increase your metabloslim, which is a nice bonus. There are also different recipes where I will add a drop or two of lemon oil to give that dish a kick in flavor. I mix it with witch hazel and lavender and use it as a linen spray. My towels, sheets, and curtains have never smelled so fresh! One of my favorite diffuser recipes is purification and lemon together-smells like springtime! Finally, I use lemon oil on my face at night with coconut oil as a brightener.
This stuff is amazing! I use it around my house for so many things. One of my favorite things to do with purification is to mix it with thieves and witch hazel for a disinfectant spray. I will spray all the girl’s toys with this spray. We keep our shoes in baskets by the door. I often spray those baskets, along with their bags with this disineffectent spray. Dirty clothes baskets of course get sprayed! Purification is also mixed with other oils at all times in my diffuser. It gives my house such a clean smell. Finally, I use it for bug bites, to take out the itch.
Thieves is a powerful antibacterial oil. I use it to disinfect so many things! I have a cleaner with thieves in it that I use to wipe down all of my countertops. It works so well and smells amazing. I also use it in my hot tea, when I feel a cold coming on or my throat is sore. Whenever anyone is sick in my house, I start diffusing thieves into the air. I also rub it on my kid’s feet at night to keep their immune system healthy. Thieves is ALWAYS in my house!
Now this oil is everyone’s preferred oil, because it has so many uses. My favorite thing to do with frankincense is to put it on my face. I mix it with coconut oil, lemon, and lavender at night and rub it on my face and neck. It helps regenerates skin cells, so it definitely helps even out my skin tone and lightens up dark spots. It is my favorite thing to put on my skin. Since using it on my skin, I have really noticed a difference in my skin tone. It is definitely brighter! Also, it really helps with acne and blemishes. Since this one is pretty pricey, I use it sparingly, and save it for my skin!
Lavender is my absolute favorite! I use lavender for EVERYTHING! I put in the bath for a calming effect. It smells fantastic, and I love diffusing it at night before bed. I have been know to put it on my kids as a calming effect (mamas need to get this). Some people don’t know this, but lavender is so helpful for your skin. When the girls have a scrape or bug bite, I smooth lavender oil on it. I also use it at night and in the morning with coconut oil all over my face and neck. Honestly, I could not live without this oil. I even keep a roller ball full of lavender in my purse as perfume, or after the gym when I am sweaty!
As you can see, I use essential oils every single day in my house. I have a significant amount of oils in my cabinets, but these are my top five I use on an everyday basis.
