How To Use My Favorite Essential Oils

If you decide to try anything new to improve your health, please try using essential oils. There are endless combinations and applications, they are safe and natural (when used properly) They smell amazing and can improve your mood and overall sense of well-being as well.

They can be used to:

  • Clean the air and your home
  • Care for sick children
  • Use on pets
  • Help with insomnia and anxiety
  • Help with sinus/respiratory conditions
  • Improve concentration
  • Reduce stress
  • Boost energy and mood

If you’d like to learn about the origin of Essential Oils, then you need to purchase Dr. Josh Axe’s book, “Essential Oils, Ancient Medicine” It is packed with gorgeous photos, very thorough, detailed, scientific information. It gets into the history of essential oils, the chemistry of essential oils, safety guidelines and then goes through dozens of oils individually giving its properties, key benefits, therapeutic compounds and research studies.

Then there is a whole section of alphabetically categorized conditions, with the oils that can be utilized to help the symptoms of those conditions as well as supplements that can also be used to complement a natural protocol .

Theres more! There’s a section on reflexology and massage, remedies for pregnacy discomfort, and oils for pets. No one is left out with essential oil uses!

Next is a recipe section for foods that you can make with essential oils, and lastly a section on DIY household and beauty product recipes.

It’s worth every penny. I refer to this book on a regular basis. It is jam-packed with tons of information and well-cited research.

Plant Therapy

My favorite brand of oils to use is Plant Therapy. They test every single batch of oils for in-depth information on each chemical constituent with GC-MS testing, as well as evaluating each oil’s color, consistency, and general appearance to give you the most accurate information possible.

There are many factors that can affect the composition and quality of an oil, including where the plant was grown (country of origin, latitude, elevation) soil and weather conditions, time of day and time of year of harvest. 

The video below is by one of their certified aromatherapists and it will give you some great tips on which oils to get started with. I highly recommend you to check it out:

They offer single use oils, combinations or “synergies”, sets and even roll-ons. They also offer high quality carrier oils and empty bottles or roll-on bottles if you’d like to mix your own combinations. †

My absolute favorite oil is Lavender. It has such a relaxing sent. I love to diffuse it in the evening when I’m trying to relax and wind down. I also use it when I’m giving Reiki treatments. It helps the person receiving the treatment to relax and feel comfortable.

It also smells great diffused together with Peppermint. They work well together to help sinus congestion and coughs.
