If you are exploring living a more natural lifestyle and looking for home remedies and healthy, natural solutions, perhaps you’ve heard about using essential oils. There are dozens and dozens of essential oils and it can be overwhelming trying to learn all their uses. But I do know that there are several every house should have on hand. These are three to get you started and I’ll come back and tell about another three soon. I’m learning about them myself, experimenting and seeing first hand about their effectiveness and therapeutic effects. For example, I KNOW lavender has cured my tension headaches and relaxed myself and my daughter at night when we had mild insomnia. We just use it nightly now and have been getting some real good zzzzz’s. It’s THAT relaxing.

Lavender– Soothing, relaxing, great at bedtime. Good for headaches (try a drop or 2 on a cool cloth draped over your forehead)

Analgesic, anti-fungal,anti-viral, anti-bacterial. Super for burns. Make sure to use in carrier oils. I use lavender in homemade shower scrubs -a few drops mixed with oil and sugar and I’m relaxed AND my skin is glowing! Lavender can also be used in homemade cleaners. Sometimes the scents of essential oils seem overly powerful in the beginning but soon you’ll find that they are just truly lovely to your senses and synthetic fragrances smell more and more fake. A walk down the detergent aisle at the grocery store will not be enjoyable.

Tea Tree Oil is known for its powerful anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial effects. It’s great for many skin issues like athlete’s foot, corns, nail fungus and more. It’s great for acne too. Do not take internally.

Peppermint-Uplifting scent with anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial effects. Great for coughs, headaches, dandruff, congestion, soothing stomachs and more. Must be diluted with carrier oil. Try a few drops on a tissue, kept on your desk, to sniff as necessary to boost your mood or help clear your nose.

There are many more uses for these three oils, that is just a beginning! I HIGHLY recommend having essential oils in your house. You can get yours here where I get mine or get any reputable line. There are also essential oil blends that are wonderful and combine scents that have the same effect, like relaxing or uplifting qualities. If you have a child in college, a scent known to increase alertness and combat fatigue may just do the trick at study time.

If you’re interested in learning more about EO’s, it’s definitely fascinating to read about. If you are trying to live a more natural lifestyle and use natural remedies, having knowledge of essential oils, or a good reference book around is a must! Check out this great reference guide to 42 oils!

Essential oils can be toxic if taken internally and can cause irritation if used directly on the skin without being diluted. Do not use on children until you’ve read directions.
