One of the most popular essential oils on the market today, lavender is known for its calming properties. For those in need of relaxation, lavender can be diffused in a diffuser, placed in a warm bath or sprinkled into a shower, and even used topically for a calming scent on the skin throughout the day. Trouble sleeping? Add a few drops to your pillow for an all-night aroma promoting peaceful sleep! Lavender can also be used in cooking and baking. Lavender cupcakes, anyone?
Tee Tree Oil
Much like lemon, tea tree oil is also known for its purifying and detoxifying qualities. It can also be used as a cleaner but most of all, tea tree oil is commonly associated with its healing properties when it comes to the skin. When mixed with a little bit of carrier oil (such as coconut) and applied to the skin, it can aid in soothing irritations and rashes and can even be a great night time moisturizer.
Peppermint is a great oil when looking to relieve stomach aches and even headaches. Its fresh and minty taste and smell help soothe your body in times of aches and pains. Place a drop or two behind your ears or on your temples to relieve headaches or swallow a drop in a veggie capsule to calm your stomach. If you are interested in an all-natural mouthwash, you can swish some peppermint oil around with some water for a minty fresh mouth!
Often known as a purifier and cleanser, lemon is a great starter essential oil due to its many uses. First, you can make your own cleaner with a combination of vinegar, water, and lemon essential oil. The lemon oil helps to cover up the smell of vinegar, while the vinegar disinfects surfaces leaving your home smelling bright and fresh! Second, you can try adding some lemon essential oil to your water for a refreshing boost throughout the day – while also helping to detoxify your body. Lemon oil can also be used to uplift your mood if put into a diffuser.
You probably haven’t seen cilantro oil, or maybe even looked for it. However, cilantro is a great addition to any essential oil stash especially if you love to cook! There’s no question that cilantro has a ton of micronutrients in it that aid in a healthy immune system, so just imagine the benefits of a concentrated cilantro oil! You’ll never have to worry about running out of cilantro as you can use the oil in salsa, dips, guacamole, marinades, and so much more!
