There are few products that come into your life that are game-changers. For me it has been Lancome, Starbucks and Fran’s Chocolates! A new product has been added to my list…Young Living essential oils.
I think we all want to go through life wanting to eat right, exercise and live a stress and chemical free life but when you find a product that can help in at least two of those categories, you jump at it! And when you find something like that, you want to share.
I put together a list of 10 essential oils I can’t live without even though the list is much longer than 10!
1- Lemon – Every morning I put 2 drops of lemon in warm water to settle my stomach before I start my day. Here are a few more benefits of lemon and water. I also use lemon or lemon oil to clean my microwave.
2- Lavender – Every morning after I drop the kids off I put lavender in my diffuser. It helps me relax and focus for my day. I’m also more productive during the day. I also use lavender in the kitchen if I have any mishaps — and yes this is often!
3- Thieves – (blend) Once you smell thieves, you will also be hooked. Thieves is a blend of oils that I use to clean my kitchen counters. I also just purchased the thieves hand sanitizer.
4- Peace & Calming – (blend) This is another blend that is great for calming down any situation. I like to diffuse this in my kids diffusers when they go to bed. This helps them relax before bed.
5- Melaleuca – Is also known as tea tree oil. I use melaleuca when the critters are biting or for skin irritations. Just last month, I put this oil on a few bug irritations and let the air get to it and it took the sting away. I also put a few drops in my moisturizer to keep my skin soft. This can also be used in shampoo!
6- Breathe again – (blend) When I’m feeling a little stuffed up, I roll this on my neck or chest to clear up my sinuses. It has eucalyptus in it so it smells really good.
7- Peppermint – Who doesn’t love the smell of peppermint right? I use this behind my ears or on my temples when my head is a little foggy. I even used this in the past when I couldn’t get rid of ants in my garage. Believe it or not, it works!
8- Purification – (blend) I love purification as a cleaning agent. I use it in my refrigerator to keep it smelling clean — here’s the recipe!
9- Abundance – (blend) This is one of those oils that makes you feel good about using it. It promotes abundance and who doesn’t want abundance right?
10-Deep Relief – (blend) I use this blend for muscle relief — it soothes my muscles when I’m a little stiff. I also put this on my temples when my head is really foggy.
Honorable mentions: Ylang Ylang (in the diffuser), Lime (for cooking and drinks), Basil (for cooking) and Harmony (for peace).
And because it’s summer I want to share this great recipe that helps get rid of those pesky summer bugs! Mix this all together and use when you go outside for a BBQ or the pool!
