If you’ve been following me on social media, then you’ve heard by now that I’m kind of obsessed with essential oils. I’ve been using them for just under a year now and WOW! They’ve made such a huge impact on our lives – we sleep better, we stay above the wellness line, we are less stressed, and we experience less aches and pains. Plus, ditching chemicals and toxins has made our home so much healthier and happier.
I’ve really been enjoying my journey with essential oils and I can’t wait to share it with you guys! A common misconception is that essential oils are basically a substitute for delicious smelling candles, and fill your home with yummy aromas. And while YES, that is totally true, essential oils are actually SOOO much more than that! Therapeutic grade essential oils like the ones I use from Young Living are exactly that – therapeutic! They support our bodies and wellness in sooo many ways and there are an abundance of ways to use them!
In today’s post I’m sharing how I use essential oils in my day-to-day life. Literally from the moment I wake up to the time I hit the sack at night, I use a TON of oils throughout the day in so many different ways. Here are some of my favourite ways to use them!
While I get ready in the morning
AromaBright Toothpaste – infused with essential oils such as Thieves essential oil blend which supports healthy gums and clean teeth. I also add a drop of Orange essential oil to help whiten my teeth.
Morning Start Bath & Shower Gel – contains Peppermint, Lemongrass, Juniper and Rosemary essential oils to uplift and energize while also cleansing your skin. I LOVE using this. I always enter the shower half asleep and by the time I get out I’m awake and refreshed.
Orange Blossom Face Wash – infused with all of the oils for smooth, soft, hydrated skin. It’s so gentle but basically works magic on your face.
Lavender Hand & Body Lotion – to keep my skin moisturized and soft all day long.
Custom Acne Roller – a mix of Lavender, Frankincense, Patchouli, and Tea Tree oils to spot treat any breakouts that are threatening to take over my day.
Throughout the day
Lavender Lip Balm – I honestly don’t think my lips could get any softer.
Perfume Blend – a mix of essential oil blends Abundance and Joy. It smells amazing but also helps to raise our body’s frequency so that we can attract positive energy!
Lava Bead Bracelets – I pair it with a few drops of whichever essential oil blend I feel like I need that day. If it’s going to be a long tiring day, I use something that’s energizing and uplifting. If I have a big meeting, I use Valor which is great for boosting confidence. If I’m feeling a bit stressed out, I use Peace and Calming or Stress Away oil blends (they are amazzzzzing!).
Headache Roller – a mix of Peppermint and Panaway for those moments when a headache hits you, but you can’t let it overpower you since you still have to get through the rest of the day.
When I get home from work
Relaxation Blends – I get my diffuser on as soon as I get home with a blend of oils to promote relaxation and grounding. One of my favourite blends is Sacred Mountain + White Angelica. Seriously, it smells like heaven and it really relaxes me.
Thieves Tea – because I can’t go an entire evening without a cup of tea! I add one drop of the Thieves oil blend to my favourite tea to help give me an immunity boost.
During my nighttime routine
Mint Satin Facial Scrub – I use this to gently exfoliate my skin every night and remove any leftover makeup. It contains a blend of oils that promotes soft, silky skin.
Frankincense Essential Oil – all over the face undiluted before bed. This literally makes your face GLOW!
Progessence Phyto Plus – a few drops on my forearms to help regulate my hormones (because getting older means more hormonal imbalances)
Endoflex – a drop on my adrenals to help support healthy thyroid function
Sleepy Time Blends – I ALWAYS have my diffuser on at nighttime with my favourite oils to help promote a restful sleep. Two of my favourite combinations are Lavender + Northern Lights Black Spruce and Lavender + Cedarwood. Both of these blends knock me out until morning!
Tranquil Roller – a mix of Lavender Cedarwood and Roman Chamomile. This roll-on is so heavenly! We rub it on the bottom of our feet before bed to help ensure a good nights rest.
These are my MOST frequently used oils because I literally use all of these EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! There are so many other amazing oils and products containing oils that I use on a weekly basis as well that I will be sharing in future posts. But for now, I hope this breakdown of my daily go-to oils gives you a glimpse of how diverse and supportive oils can truly be in our daily lives.
