Well. I’m just going to say it.
I have an obsession with essential oils. Like I have more than 30 different types of oils (not including several of my regulars) and at least 3 different diffusers in my home.
I know a lot of people think they are just the “thing” right now, but generations of people have been using them for years as part of a more natural way of life.
Essential oils have many uses. They can be used:
You can even use them in home solutions! The only thing I use in my home is Young Living Thieves Concentrated Cleaning Solution, which can be diluted to scrub floors and clean countertops.

Ask around, you may see, they are a big part of my life and I use them DAILY.
If you’re not already incorporating them into your daily routine, you’re really missing out on a variety of better (and natural) possibilities.
Read on to learn more about how to use 7 essential oils every day of the week!
Because lemon oil is so versatile, it is one of the most useful oils to always have on hand (hence my stock of 3 bottles at a time). Not only is it such a light and refreshing scent, but its antioxidant properties can help support a healthy immune system. .
Tip: Use in your favorite diffuser blend or place several drops on a clean cotton cloth to take with you to smell “on the go.” Here are 12 uses for lemon essential oil!
Frankincense oil isn’t just for the holidays. This beneficial oil has been said to instill feelings of spirituality and inner strength. I love spreading this while doing yoga or meditating in the mornings.
Tip: Apply 1-2 drops of frankincense to your face and neck to visually minimize blemishes, or add a few drops to dry skin for a healthier glow.
Peppermint oil is perfect year round when you need to cool down fatigued muscles after a workout or create an environment of concentration for school work. Better yet, with Peppermint Vitality, you can add 1 drop of this oil to a batch of homemade brownies to make seasonal peppermint brownies. SO GOOD!
Tip: Apply a few drops of peppermint oil to your temples or neck to give you a cool, refreshing feel and promote positivity.
Tea tree oil, like lemon, is one of the most common essential oils to be found in the stash. It is used in many beauty products due to its ability to help smooth and beautify the appearance of your skin.
Tip: Apply 1 to 3 drops of tea tree oil to your skin and rub it in gently. You can even add it to your favorite carrier oil (mine is Young Living massage oil or coconut oil) and use it during a massage session.
Orange essential oil is known to have a sweet and peaceful scent that can inspire creativity and harmony. Its fresh citrus aroma can be combined in its diffuser with other oils such as grapefruit or lemon, to give your day the boost it needs.
Tip: Add 8 to 12 drops of orange with witch hazel to a glass sprayer and mist your bedding, sheets, and closets to leave a fresh, bright scent.
Lavender has almost endless ways to use this oil. It is known to have a relaxing and calming effect. You can use it to hydrate your skin or even add a few drops to the water to use an air freshener in your home.
I personally use Lavender for EVERYTHING and it’s not just for its soothing floral scent.
Tip: If you are having trouble relaxing from your day, use this oil to make lavender orange bath bombs and pop one of these in the bathroom to help you relax. If you feel restless, use a few drops of this oil in your diffuser to help calm you down at night.
Thieves is a blend of cloves, rosemary, and other herbs that gives off a rich, spicy aroma. Its versatile uses are incredibly beneficial, and if taken internally, they can help support a healthy immune system! Every morning, I have a glass of water and add a few drops of lemon and thieves to start the day right.
Tip: If you feel cold, add a few drops of Thieves to your bath water with Epsom salts to keep you warmer.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I mentioned Young Living a couple of times and wanted to share why I use them every day.
First of all, the quality of the oils is outstanding and due to the variety available it is very easy to create your own favorite blends (lavender, orange and lemon are constantly diffused in my home).
Most importantly, I use Young Living because it works for me and the way I live my life. Now, I’m not telling you what to wear, but what I can share with you is how much my life (and my thinking) has changed in 2 years.
