One question I get a lot is what are my favorite essential oils? I have many, for many different reasons, that I absolutely love but here are my top 10 favorites!
Oh, how I love the woodsy scent of Vetiver! It is a very thick oil, you may need a needle or toothpick to get it out of the bottle, although when I put the bottle upside down it slowly comes out, or I put the oil in a dropper bottle which makes it easier. I diffuse it all the time and I use it in my sleeping blend. The scent of Vetiver calms me down and the scent creates a calm and soothing atmosphere. This is definitely my favorite oil of all!
Besides all the benefits that come with grapefruit, I was surprised to find out that I am quite fond of the scent. Mostly because I do not like actual grapefruits at all. The Grapefruit essential oil is very uplifting. It lifts my mood and makes things lighter and easier to deal with. I often put 1 or 2 drops of Grapefruit in my water and drink it, it has benefits for cleansing the body.
Now here is an essential oil I can diffuse all day! Lemongrass is extremely mood lifting, purifies, cleanses the mind and the scent is amazing. Sometimes I have 3 diffusers going at the same time to simply make my whole house smell like Lemongrass!
Peppermint smells delicious and is my go-to oil when I have head and neck tension I use it in my tension blend but sometimes I simply apply it to my temples, forehead, and neck to prevent an on setting head tension from breaking through. Peppermint is a scent that makes me happy and makes me feel good.
Orange, like all the other citrus oils, has wonderful cleansing benefits and is very uplifting. It’s an oil that everybody loves and I regularly put a drop or two in my water to benefit from its protective properties to support my immune system. One of my customers is a real estate agent and she uses the Orange essential oil whenever she has an open house, and people always tell her the scent makes them happy.
Our top selling oil! Lemon has amazing cleansing properties, not only for your body, which is why I put 1-2 drops in my water every day but also for your home. Lemon can be added to a spray bottle of distilled water to clean your countertops and spray in your salad at the same time. It’s quite awesome when I do that, it always gets my guests talking. Lemon is a very uplifting scent that also promotes focus, I love to diffuse it together with some Lime.
Frankincense, the KING of all oils, the oil of truth, described all the way back in the Bible. This is an oil that has so many benefits! I diffuse it to feel peaceful, I use it in my sleepy blend, I put it on my face to keep my skin healthy and I ingest it in a capsule to support my immune system.
This is an essential oil with a very strong scent that is used a lot in the perfume industry. The scent is exquisite! Ylang Ylang is known to promote stress relief and has amazing anti -oxidant properties. I use it in my sleepy blend and I often diffuse one or two drops mixed in with Serene Blend.
Melaleuca is an oil that I love because it really helps me with skin issues. I use it topically mixed with aloe vera gel. I add 2-3 drops of Melaleuca and it is soothing for the skin and the next day it really looks a lot better or is completely gone. Diffused, Melaleuca is an oil that will give me energy when I am in a slump, it smells so good!
Last but not least, Lavender, my go to first aid oil that I use for just about everything. Most of the roller blends I use have Lavender in them somewhere. It’s an awesome oil, relaxing, soothing, that will help you be calm and sleep. I diffuse it on a regular basis, and even my cats take naps when the diffuser with lavender is going. It helps humans as well as animals to relax, and a customer that diffuses Lavender together with the Serene Blend in her boarding kennel with great success!
