Above are my favorite essential oils. I love to have my diffuser on in various parts of my living space. I also like to have a small bottle of lavender in my car or desk at work. Whenever I am feeling overwhelmed or in need of a mental health break, I rub a little lavender on my wrist and behind my ear lobes. This calming scent allows my body to relax as I focus on my deep breathing.
I also like to add lavender with sweet almond oil and water to a spray bottle for my hair. As a part of my daily hair prep in between washes I spray this concoction all over my head inhaling the sweet fragrance and massaging my scalp and hair. This daily routine allows my hair to shine and shimmer.
I LOVE ESSENTIAL OILS.
In addition to using in my diffusers, stress points and for a quick hair refresher, I also rub eucalyptus oil on my son’s chest, back, and soles of his feet after moisturizing his skin. I do this often to keep chest congestion at bay especially during the height of allergy season.
Another great way I like to use essential oils is with raw shea butter and cold pressed coconut oil. During the winter months, I like to melt raw shea butter with coconut oil and add lavender oil to the mixture. While still warm, I pour into wide mouth mason jars and allow to cool in the refrigerator. This great mixture melts like whipped butter on a hot griddle into your skin! The shea butter and coconut oil melts into your skin leaving it smooth and soft. The lavender scent allows one to feel calm and at ease.
What about you dear reader? Do you like using essential oils and if so, how do you use them? Blessings.
