I love essential oils, and I am so happy I found a way to fully trust them after some failed experiments. Now, I can’t get enough of (“I’m so grateful for”) them and I want to share with you how I use them in my daily living.
When I purchased my first bottles of REAL essential oils, I was five months pregnant with my firstborn. I had little trust left over with new products after wasting money on concoctions that turned rancid and I did not want to poison my baby. What I was looking for was the true essence of the plant. When I bought the first few bottles, a friend assured me that they were the most authentic. It had also activated my curiosity when she explained to me that essential oils are the living liquid within the plant.
I learned that mass-produced dried and powdered herbs won’t have that “essential” living liquid. In fact dried and powdered herbs mainly utilize only the fiber in which the liquid is found.
The biggest revelation that came after doing my research in this field was that there are a ton of personal care products on the market that say ‘Natural Botanicals’. In the world of labeling, that could mean anything.
When I see so many synthetic oil combinations and misrepresented labeling, I can’t sit by and stay quiet.
I am obsessed with truth and transparency. My kids know I have a superpower of telling when people are lying, and they now know to avoid activating it.
High-tech chemical companies can manufacture molecules to add volume and manipulate the chemical composition for a more pleasant smell. They think its great marketing to try to affect the emotional center of the brain with toxic chemicals.
Its a poisoning of mind, body, and spirit of a society.
There is almost nothing you can do of real value, with a growing majority of the aromatherapy made available, being so low-quality.
We can’t underestimate the impact of our daily decisions.
Using oils and making my own care items empowers me. I now see how collectively we raise the vitality of society, so that every community can cleanse and detox and live a healthier, happier life.
Cleaning products do not have to be toxic to the body. We can set a new standard for our families that don’t contribute to asthma or lethargy of the cells.
One of the things that I love about Thieves cleaner is how efficient it is against grease and germs while giving me a boost of refreshment when I clean.
Adding extra drops of lemon for rust or glue removal is recommended.
Adding some baking soda gives a brighter scrub.
Making your cleaning solutions is just the beginning. Here are are a bunch of ways my family and I use essential oils in our daily lifestyle.
One of the first bottles I got was frankincense. I had no real experience with the oil until I tried my friend’s bottle and felt a significant shift in my awareness.
She told me how valuable frankincense was to the ancient Egyptians and gave me a tip on using it for the skin to create an even skin tone. Here are my recipes.
The secret recipe for sun spots
-1 2 ounce dark glass bottle with a mister top
-7 drops of Lavender
-10 drops of frankincense.
-1.75 ounces of distilled water
Place the drops at the bottom of the clean bottle. Add distilled water. Close top and shake well.
Mist skin before applying daily moisturizer.
Skin tone Repair Serum
-1-ounce dark glass serum bottle
-Avocado oil or Jojoba oil
-5 drops Carrot Seed Essential oil
-13 drops Frankincense EO
-7 drops Lavender EO
All things Lavender
There are several hybrids of Lavender, so it’s important to look for Lavandula angustifolia for best results.
Lavender is such a versatile oil so I will get straight to the hows.
- Diffuse in the kid’s room before bed. 3-5 drops in a diffuser high in the corner of the room for best distribution practices.
- Make a misting spray for the linens with 13 Drops in a 2-ounce blue cobalt bottle and add 1.75 ounces of distilled water. Leave room to shake it up well.
- Pour therapeutic grade Lavandula angustifolia immediately over a burn to begin the soothing process continue every 20 minutes until the pain is relieved. Then repeat 2 times a day with coconut oil to heal scarring.
- Mix in a mist with peppermint oil for a yin yang balance.

Lately, my husband has been making a lot of amazing recipes he’s learned from youtube. My stomach knows what to expect the minute I see him using flour and cheese and I go straight to my oils to prepare. I’ll drink a tall glass of water with a few drops of Digize an hour before I eat and it makes everything go a lot smoother (less bloating and easier digestion). Another great option I tried was Essentialzymes (whew, game-changer for those rocks in the belly).
Peppermint rubbed right on my belly has helped with nausea at the most convenient times like family vacations and ferry rides. It’s one of my must-haves in our first-aid kit.
If you have feelings of anxiety or have low moods, frankincense oil may be the right choice for you. Frankincense combines the power of citrus scent with those of minty ones to provide a long-lasting aroma that will lift your energy levels and balance your moods.
Frankincense’s compounds can cross the blood-brain barrier, so it works well at treating depression and anxiety, which can contribute to a lack of energy for some people.
In addition to using it in your diffuser or inhaling it directly, you can also rub a few drops in strategic places, like your neck, feet, or wrists. Create a revitalizing massage oil by adding this essential oil to jojoba or argan oil.
Beauty Bonus: Frankincense fights wrinkles and is considered anti-aging. Frankincense helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne scars, the appearance of large pores, renew skin cells and restore your natural glow.
Such an empowering use for EO’s is boosting the system that fights off germs and harmful bacteria in the body.
15 years ago when I began to tell people that I put Thieves essential oil on my infant’s feet after her baths. I told them it was preventative and I felt responsible for strengthening their immune system.
Over a decade later, Thieves is now available in a roll-on, so now the girls practice self-care with the convenient application.
Each essential oil has its unique benefits, with some of them being anti-fungal, and others offering a defense against bacteria and virus.
We have a lot to thank essential oils for. However, you can’t enjoy these benefits unless you turn to essential oils to help fight infection and boost your immunity. Consider switching out all the harmful ingredients that are mass-produced for a lower-end price. Support your overall health and wellness holistically is a lifestyle choice. I am grateful you see that.
