Why essential oils?
If you’ve ever read the ingredients label on basically anything, you’ve probably read the name of some substance or compound that you have never heard of or have no idea what it is or what it does. It happens to me on a daily basis. I certainly have not completely switched over to organic foods or cleaning products and still use many modern remedies and healthcare options. I also still have a lot to learn. But for me, using essential oils has been a way for me to control some of what I am bringing into my home and using around my family. It’s given me the chance to opt for something gentle and natural to clean my home, care for my daughter, and to use in cooking. I know what is in an essential oil and I know where it comes from. When I use any of my oils, I feel confident that I am at least preserving, and often promoting, the health of my family.
How do I use essential oils?
Oils can be used in three ways: aromatically, topically, or internally. If you’ve ever enjoyed the scent of an orange or a pine forest, you’ve already experienced essential oils aromatically! I love to just open a bottle and take a sniff or to put oils in my diffuser to experience their aromatic benefits. Some oils are also great to put directly on your body (when diluted with a carrier oil such as coconut oil) and others are commonly used internally in cooking or in natural remedies. Each oil is different and can be used for many things. Here are a few ways that I personally use essential oils in my home.
- I use wild orange oil and frankincense oil together in my diffuser to help me wake up and get moving in the morning. (And it just makes my house smell yummy!)
- I use diluted lavender on my daughter’s feet (and my own!) when she is having trouble sleeping
- Peppermint and Breathe (an awesome blend from doTERRA) are fantastic rubbed on the chest (diluted) when one of us has a cold or seasonal sniffles
When I started using essential oils, I chose to exclusively use doTERRA’s oils. They are all CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and the company is open and honest about where/how their oils are grown and distilled.
