BEGINNERS GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL OILS

October 8, 2017
If you know me you know that I talk about Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential at least once a day. I honestly talk about her like we have known each other since childhood haha. If you have never read her blog head on over and send her some love! I promise you won't regret it!

It was through Lauryn that I was introduced to the idea of Essential Oils so when my Aunt randomly gifted me an Essential Oil Diffuser at Christmas you would have thought I had died and gone to heaven! Low key think Mama Wynne thought I was 100% losing my mind when I immediately began RAVING about all things essential oils... she was probably like "Where did my daughter go and who is this hippy in my house!"

You can purchase the Essential Oil Diffuser my Aunt got me HERE. I personally love this one because it has a timers of 30-minute, 60-minute, 120-minute, or 180-minutes making it perfect for when you want to run essential oils before bed. It also has 7 color-changing lights - I personally love turning it to the red lighting option which is so relaxing and perfect for unwinding after a long day.

Recently, I have been posting my essential oil diffuser on my Snapchat and I've honestly lost count of the amount of people that have reached out asking "What is that?" or "Where did you get that?" So I thought I would do a Beginners Guide to Essential Oils! I'm still learning so much about all the different types of oils and their unique benefits but wanted to share a few of my personal favorites with you all today.

If you are just getting started with Essential Oils I would get this starter pack from Amazon HERE. It has all the basics and they are the perfect size to get you going and help you learn what you like.

Eucalyptus
  • Eucalyptus is probably my favorite essential oil. I suffer from bad allergies and love diffusing this to help open up my sinuses.
Lavender
  • Lavender is probably the best essential oil for beginners! It is great to diffuse right before bed and helps your mind and body relax!
Eucalyptus + Lavender
  • I've been getting a little fancy and mixing a few drops of my eucalyptus and lavender oils together at night and it has become my new favorite!
Tea Tree
  • Tea Tree Oil is great to diffuse if you want to clean the air in your home. It has antibacterial properties that help sanitize your space. Due to its antibacterial properties it can also be used for acne that is developing! I just add a tiny drop on any acne I feel coming to the surface and it gets the job done! 
Peppermint
  • Peppermint is great for headaches! You can either add a couple drops to your temples or diffuse with your diffuser! 
Sweet Orange
  • Sweet Orange is a new love of mine! I have loved starting my Sunday's with Sweet Orange in my diffuser. It is the perfect oil to start your day with - I also love it because the orange scent reminds me of Florida and I'm partial to anything that reminds me of my hometown! 
I hope you found this post helpful and I've made the idea of entering the world of essential oils a little less intimidating!
