I’ve been using essential oils to keep my family healthy for about a year now. I recently went to a class at a friend’s house and my passion for essential oils was reinvigorated. I thought I would share some of my favorite oils and their uses with you guys in case you were interested in what they can do for your family.
From the YoungLiving website: “Helichrysum essential oil has a clarifying, stimulating, and grounding fragrance that makes it ideal to diffuse when studying or doing homework. Helichrysum can be applied topically to improve the appearance of tender skin.”
I love to diffuse this oil when working on a difficult task or powering through a challenging blog post. It makes me feel focused and helps me to complete tasks.
Everyone knows that lavender is soothing and calming. I use this in my kids’ laundry, I diffuse it before bedtime when they are especially cranky, I put a couple of drops in my bathwater when I am stressed, and I also place a drop on my kids’ pillows when I change their bedding. No home is complete without lavender.
Lemon is energizing when diffused, it can be used in cleaning solutions, and you can even add a drop to water or tea for a flavor boost. It’s a very versatile, fresh-smelling oil.
AKA Tea Tree oil, has antiseptic properties and a very fresh scent. You can add a few drops to a spray bottle with water and lemon oil to make a great household cleanser. It is also great for clearing skin blemishes and mild eczema.
Thieves is a blend exclusive to Young Living that contains eucalyptus and clove oils, among other things. It is great to diffuse to give your home a cozy feeling and it is also great to diffuse if someone in your family has a respiratory illnesss, as it helps to open up the airways. YoungLiving has a whole line of household cleaning products made from Thieves oil.
