The Basics

Lemon, lavender, and peppermint are your three most basic oils because they have such a wide range of uses. If you don’t have any oils and are looking to introduce a natural healing approach within your home, I would start with these three oils. Here are a few ideas of different ways to use essential oils in your everyday life.

Lemon – Cleansing – You can add a drop to your water and drink to cleanse your body and aid in digestion. Support your respiratory system by adding it to a diffuser or add it to a glass bottle with water and vinegar to create a simple yet powerful home cleaning solution!

Lavender – Calming – Diffuse a few drops to promote a restful sleep. Add a drop to your moisturizer to soothe your skin. Soothe a bug bite or stop a nosebleed. Add to water or tea to ease tense feelings.

Peppermint – Invigorating – Rub into areas of tension on your head, neck, shoulders, and back to relieve pain. Diffuse for a mid-day energy boost. Add a drop to your water to soothe nausea or keep you cool during a workout.

Oil Safety

Don’t use essential oils in your eyes, in your ears or in your nose. Start with small amounts as one drop is an adult dose. If an essential oil feels uncomfortable, apply carrier oil as this will disperse the oil and not make it feel as intense. Water will drive the oil in deeper. Citrus oils can increase sun sensitivity; allow at least 12 hours between application of the oil and exposing skin to the sun. Don’t use essential oils with plastic bottles for drinking or storage. If you accidentally get oils in your eyes, close your eyes and add a carrier oil to your eyelids. Rub in the carrier oil until your eyes feel better and then wipe it all away with a cloth.

Oil Tips

When adding oils to a diffuser start with 1-3 drops. Turn it on and run it for a bit and then determine if you need to add more drops next time. DoTERRA Essential Oils are potent and a little goes a long way! Examples of Carrier oils are olive, coconut, or almond oil. I also really like Jojoba oil!
