5 Ways to Use Essential Oils Every Day
If you're new here, welcome! If you've been following for a while, welcome back! Today I'm sharing five easy ways you can use essential oils in your every day life. I started using Young Living essential oils about three months ago. They have become such a part of my daily routine and I can't help but share them with you!
In case you missed my previous post about essential oils, or are new to oils, read this post for everything you need to know!
ONE // IN YOUR WATER
Every day, I put a drop or two of lemon in my water! It's great for detoxing your body while adding flavor! It's also super convenient to have right in the kitchen & be able to bring it with you to work or on the go. Young Living has an entire line of vitality oils that are completely safe for ingestion. The vitality bottles have a white label so you know you can ingest them.
TWO // IN A DIFFUSER
There are so so many blends you can put in a diffuser! When I'm sitting at my desk working, I love to diffuse peppermint & lemon because it's fresh and helps me focus. At night, I like to diffuse cedarwood & lavender to help with sleep. If you have a diffuser in your kitchen, citrus fresh is perfect for spring! I also love grapefruit & bergamot diffused together. The blends are endless!
THREE // AS PART OF YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
I've always been a big fan of using face oils because the benefits are real! Depending on what you are looking to target (reduced redness, minimizing break outs, brightened dark spots, overall glow, etc), there's most likely an oil that can help you! Adding a drop of frankincense to your night time moisturizer can help with overall glow and lavender is great for calming the skin. I have some DIY oils and masks I want to make, so I will be doing a separate post with those when I figure out the best blends!
FOUR // TO HELP YOU SLEEP
I have a roller bottle of cedarwood, lavender and stress away that I roll on the bottom of my feet at night. I am not a heavy sleeper, and trying to get a sound sleep with Rob & Nala (our pup) in my bed is HARD. When I started using this blend, I began to really sleep through the night. Seriously I was AMAZED that it actually worked! I also like to diffuse this blend as I'm getting ready for bed because it sets the mood! Another great night time blend is lavender + peace & calming II.
FIVE // IN THE SHOWER
I love to add a few drops of eucalyptus to the bottom of the shower. It's so refreshing and instantly smells like a spa! It's such an awakening scent and is great for morning or after a work out. Young Living also makes bath bombs (!!!) that I have yet to try but hear are amazing. They infuse them with lavender or stress away and apparently they're the bomb.com!
