Time for another round of…What I’m Loving Wednesday!
Today I am going to talk to you about a new love of mine, essential oils. I have seen them all over social media but never really got into it until a few weeks ago when Rebekah and I went to the Maroon 5 concert. She used Peppermint to help her stay awake when driving and she said it helped to clear her mind. She also said it helped her focus when she was studying and that was when I decided that I needed to do a little research!
I have friends that use Young Living and I have friends that use DoTerra. After some research into both companies I chose to go with DoTerra. It’s a personal choice and that’s what I decided.
I ordered the Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint Introductory Kit to start out with. These are the three most commonly used oils and I have heard such great things about them. When mixed together these three are supposed to be an “allergy bomb”. I like that you can use them individually by smell, taste, or skin application or you can combine them in multiple ways for multiple uses.
I mainly use Lavender for sleep, I put a little on the bottoms of my feet and even have Sophie puppy smell the bottle. That’s right, pets can use essential oils too!
I use the Lemon in my water to drink as a detox water. With my Invisalign I can only drink water with them in (which is 22 hours a day) but I can add a drop of essential oil to it to give it flavor and not worry about teething cavities or turing my teeth colors! I am also ordering Wild Orange, Grapefruit, and Lime for this same reason.
I use the Peppermint when I am studying or for headaches. Peppermint is a “hot oil” and must be diluted in a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) before being applied to the skin. It works great when rubbed on my temples and then wherever the specific headache pain is.
I am seriously loving my essential oils and I can’t wait to try more!! If you want to try essential oils then hit me up! I will hopefully be able to answer any questions you have!
Do you use essential oils?
