Anyone who has used aromatherapy can safely say they enjoy the many benefits. With the growing evidence of its effectiveness, I’m excited to be sharing my experience with a well known essential oils brand. I’ve been mixing my oils with water for a spray form, or using some as a carrier oil to mix with massage oil after a stressful day. This past week I’ve enjoyed the benefits of a few essential oils, compliments of DoTerra, that I’d like to share with you!
I also have the exciting opportunity to introduce doTERRA and give my readers a chance to win an introductory kit of essential oils. DoTERRA has been bringing therapeutic-grade oils to the world since 2008, and their products are exclusively sold through independent consultants. For now, see how I used doTERRA oils to bring balance to my being.
LAVENDER OIL is nature’s natural sedative.
I used a small spray bottle of lavender oil and mineral water. A small mist of lavender spray on my pillow before I go to sleep smells wonderful and relaxes me. You can also soak a few cotton balls with lavender oil placed by your bedside for the same effect.
Rather than use scented dryer sheets, I added 9 drops of lavender oil to a clean damp wash cloth and added to my dryer load.
LEMON OIL is nature’s natural disinfectant. I love mixing lemon essential oil with vinegar and water in a spray bottle. I can wipe down the wood floors and clean almost all surfaces. It leaves a clean, fresh citrus scent. Lemon oil can be used to freshen almost anything; mix approx. 16 drops of lemon oil to one cup of baking soda and keep in a covered container for at least 24 hours. Sprinkle this mixture on carpet, let sit for 10 minutes and then vacuum. You can also freshen your fridge (and get rid of those odors) by using cotton balls soaked with lemon oil. Throw them out once they’ve lost their scent.
is nature’s natural energizer. It’s one of my favorites and I wrote a post the beginning of the year about the wonderful ways to use this essential oil. You can see it here
