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.
