INTRODUCING YOUR HOME ESSENTIALS KIT
I promised you I would help put your precious oils to good use, and thats exactly what I'm here to do! Perhaps you're easing into the essential oils lifestyle, or if you're like me, you might already be using them for anything, and everything! or maybe you haven't quite cracked open the lids yet?
Wherever you're at, it's my job to make sure you are LOVING your oils, and feel empowered to incorporate them in to your daily rhythms, rituals and self-care routines. In this blog post, you'll find a simple overview of the uses of our top ten home essential oils, and how you can use them to help support your body to do what it's meant to do, naturally. You see, that's the fantastic thing about these oils, they truly do work with our body systems so beautifully, wether that be physically, emotionally or spiritually.
Something important to note:
I always recommend diluting the oils with fractionated coconut oil or carrier oil of your choice before applying topically. These incredibly powerful, and highly concentrated oils are 50-80 times more powerful than the plant in it’s natural form, and so less, is always more, and we must respect their potency!
If in doubt, please follow bottle guidelines, or send me a quick email.
Peppermint - tummy + tension
Cools body temperature, soothes head tension, an energising 'UP' oil, use it in the morning to wake up + before exercise. Settles upset tummies, tastes incredible infused in chocolate treats, or add a drop to your glass of water to feel refreshed and uplifted. 1 drop of peppermint is equivalent to 26 cups of peppermint tea!
Lemon - cleanse + detox
Detoxifying + deodorising, lemon is fantastic in natural cleaners, purifies the air, uplifting the mood, alleviates anxious feelings, great for focus, delicious in salad dressings, raw baking, or coconut bliss balls.
