Best Ways to Use Essential Oils

The basic building blocks of aromatherapy are essential oils.

My first encounter with aromatherapy was when one of my daughters was doing VCE and I bought Rosemary oil to aid her studying.  

At the same time, I was burning the candle at both ends and took time off as I was suffering from chronic fatigue.

It was so debilitating that I could just sleep most of the day and still feel exhausted. 

I would wash the breakfast dishes and could hardly get through the chore without crashing on the couch for an hour of sleep. 

One day, I decided to burn some rosemary oil as I loved experimenting with different scents. 

However, this was the first time I used a high-quality essential oil.

At this time, I had chronic fatigue for two months and thought there was a long road to recovery (most probably longer but this was 2 months I did not work). 

As the oil burnt, I rested on the couch after doing the dishes. As I lay resting, my eyes literally popped open and I just felt good!

Previously, it was an effort to open my eyes, whereas now I felt so good that I went outside and gardened for an hour. 

This was an incredible feat for me and I still felt great when I came inside. No exhaustion or muscle aches and pains. 

So essential oils became a part of our family life and my daughters are also great advocates for essential oils. 

 They have substituted all laundry, cleaning, health and beauty routines and products, as much as possible, with products based on essential oils. 

 I would often burn combinations of lavender, rose, bergamot and be asleep within ten minutes. 

Why would anyone not try essential oils to enhance their overall health?

How Essential Oils Can Improve Your Life- Practical Uses

In the Home

Essential Oils can be used as substitutes for harsh and unhealthy chemicals used in the home. 

They can be combined with more natural sources, such as baking soda, water, vinegar to make great household products.

 My mum was a harsh chemical addict and I grew up with a cupboard full of these products to use throughout the house. 

However, I noticed that these products burnt my eyes and, literally, took my breath away.  

So we are making healthy changes, such as using natural products, like vinegar and essential oils for cleaning, disinfecting and deterring those pesky bugs that love to board with you.

Did you know that using lemon or peppermint oil deters bugs, spiders, and even mice? They hate it!  

Did you know that you can make a carpet deodorizer using your favourite oils?

If you are having a party, use lemon or lime to rev up the atmosphere.

Do you want a bug free, beautifully scented linen cupboard?

These are just some of the things you can achieve with the use of essential oils. 

More to come about using essential oils in the home.

Personal Use

Last year, I bought a beautiful essential oil moisturiser from a chemist.

 It was so good, I bought it for my elderly mother who was not able to use moisturisers anymore, as her eyes kept tearing after use of the cream.

It contained honey and rose oil and, although I am older now, it made my skin glow and really did give my skin a more youthful appearance. 

Did you know that Lavender oil is good for dry skin while lemon oil is good for oily skin?

Did you know that you can make body sprays and perfumes using essential oils?

The reason I have asked these questions is to open your mind to the endless possibilities of using essential oils and replace the methods we now take for granted ie. buying household products off the supermarket shelves without thinking about other simple solutions that are healthier.

  1. I've really gotten into essential oils so this information is super helpful! I love wearing diffuser necklaces too. Great post.

    1. I had used oils before but, after a lot of searching and information, I have finally decided to join up with doTerra. My partner and I are enjoying using them. I will be publishing a new post soon about my journey with doTerra oils.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing. I LOVE essential oils! I have a diffuser necklace I wear at all times. I usually put lavender and peppermint oil in it to combat stress.

    1. love them too! We have a nightly ritual using the oils and my partner loves it-he relaxes after a shower and thoroughly enjoys the oils.

  3. I use essential oils a lot but I've never tried the diffuser necklaces. I want to give those a try!

    1. The jewellery combines with the warmth of your body and help the scent waft to you throughout the day.

  4. I don't know why I never thought of using essential oils as carpet deodorizer! I'm going to give it a try! Here in Indonesia I always have probs with mosquitoes so I often use lavender and lemongrass oils and they work like magic :D How do you make body spray with essential oil? I think I'll try make that too, I can use it as mosquitoes repellent spray :D Thank you for your recommendations! xo

    1. Hi Nindy- I did reply to you but just found that the comment did not come through! You can make a body spray by using: 1/2 cup boiled or distilled water, 1/2 cup of witch hazel (chemist) or and I tablespoon of rubbing alcohol or vodka and use your choice of following oils-lavender, mint, citronella, clove, lemongrass, rosemary, Teatree, catnip, geranium. One of my daughters told me it is just as easy to use vodka instead of rubbing alcohol. doTERRA's Arborvitae and Terra Armour are also good to repel bugs.

  5. I love essential oils, especially Lavender and Pepperment.A friend of mine mops her floor with fresh Peppermint from her garden which keeps ants away. I like Peppermint oil in my defuser because the smell wakes me up and makes me feel refreshed.

    1. Yes, I had a tough week and am exhausted so decided to use lemon oil in my diffuser and drank a cup of peppermint tea to get fluids into me. I do feel much better and my headache went away. We use lavender every night and I don't wake up as often. I mixed drops of lavender into coconut oil and we do a foot massage every night before bed.
