5 Easy Ways to Use Essential Oils in Your Every Day Routine {& Holiday Giveaway!!!}

For those of you who are not really familiar with how to use essential oils or you are a newbie and just want to figure out how to get started today's post is for you!

I shared my story before about how I started using essential oils and at first did not really "get" how to use them. Now I have learned so much more and so excited that I can take simple daily steps in my home to make it more healthy for myself and my family.

It doesn't have to be complicated---I promise.  You will definitely love that you are making better choices for your family by choosing more natural and healthy options. You don't need to be intimidated either because the tips I am sharing today makes it really easy for you to start out.

So here is my super simple list:

1. Winter moisturizer - I don't know about you but my skin gets dry on certain areas of my face, hands, feet, and body during the winter months. I love being able to whip up some coconut oil and a drop or two of my favorite essential oil to replenish my skin. It also makes it super soft! I keep it on my nightstand for easy access.

2. Do your laundry - This is something we try to do everyday and for a big family like ours we try to do it several times a day! Now did you know that you can use Thieves Laundry Detergent? It was just recently released and I have been hearing raving reviews on it. This would be great for those who want to move away from store bought detergents especially if they (or a family member) might have sensitive skin.

3. Brush your teeth - Can you believe that you can also get Thieves Toothpaste now too? You can!

4. Clean your home - This has got to be one of my favorites. When I first started using the Thieves Household Cleaner I loved how it cleaned everything and that I wasn't polluting my home with harsh chemicals. And it did the job well!

5. Make your home smell amazing -  We all love to make our homes smell nice so instead of firing up a candle or spraying air freshener try using a diffuser that will dispurse any awesome essential oil scent you can think of! I love doing this, especially in my bedroom at night with the baby (my favorite is Stress Away).

I also prefer using Young Living products in case you couldn't tell!

Here is  some helpful advice from Tonya Chapa on essential oils:

What an awesome give away! I am really interested in the oils and hope to get the starter set for Christmas. I would love to try the Valor oil as well for anxiety.

I've only ever tried tea tree oil for cleaning and for when one of my babies had a yeast diaper rash. I would like to try cedarwood in place of eucalyptus and make a blend that is safe for my kiddos (and my husband who has epilepsy) to use when they have a cold. I can't even recall at the moment what else to put in the blend, maybe peppermint and rosemary, but I think that one is on the avoid list for people with epilepsy as well, so I need to research a substitute for that.

Mayla Moore said...

I'd love to try the En-R-Gee™ blend.

Tiffany Long said...

I honestly like using Essential. Oils over chemicals because I love the fact that the Essential. Oils are all natural and that they will not cause any adverse reactions for my family and I.
