Welcome! Not only will I explain how to use essential oils, you will be ready to share all of this excitement before you finish this post! If you already know how to use essential oils, click here to order wholesale OR keep reading to find out why you should join my team đŸ˜†

What are essential oils?
Essential oils are highly concentrated, natural substances that have therapeutic uses from anything to facial moisturizer to igniting your creativity and everything in between. They are all natural, and you can think of them like nature’s medicine (and cleaner. and cosmetic. and…). They are an excellent compliment to your healthy lifestyle and help you in your daily life to be your best self.

Great! What can you do with them?
You can use them aromatically, topically (with dilution) or even ingest them (warning: not all are meant to be ingested. Read on to learn more)

How will using essential oils help me live well?
I believe living well can be narrowed down to four areas:

  1. What you put into your body (the quality of your food, drugs you take, alcohol, oral care products.. to name a few)
  2. What you put ON your body (cosmetics, such as deodorant, shampoo, makeup, lotions, soaps, etc)
  3. What you do with your body (think: laughing, working out, going on adventures, dancing)
  4. What you surround yourself with (aromas, cleaning products, the air you breathe, the way you think, and even the people who support you)

The great news is: essential oils can help with ALL FOUR living well domains. I won’t sit here and tell you there’s an oil to make you drop 10 pounds overnight, or that an essential oil will cure your acne in a week. But I WILL tell you that using essential oils will assist in reaching those goals, change your life, reduce your desire to take medicines, help you eliminate the use of harmful chemicals, and create a healthier, non-toxic environment for you and your family.

Wow, I’m ready to integrate essential oils into my healthy lifestyle. What do I with them?
You can diffuse your oils, dilute them and use them on your skin, or ingest them. Personally, for pure oils I prefer to use them aromatically in a diffuser and topically mixed in with a carrier oil (like coconut or the signature V6 blend) – they are so potent and i love to use them this way. Although I won’t say no to some peppermint bites!! (recipe coming soon!) The fun part about learning how to use essential oils is that you will get to try them and see what works best for you!!

You may have heard the debate over whether or not essential oils are safe to ingest – I highly encourage you to do your own research and make that decision for yourself. I am comfortable doing it, just think about it – if you have a headache, you may take a pain reliever to help it go away. Maybe more if it’s REALLY bad. But you’re not going to use the whole bottle in one sitting, and you’re not going to take it every day for the rest of your life, or take it with alcohol – essential oils can be used with similar caution, which is why we call them therapeutic – they will help us reach our wellness goals (but essential oils have NO added chemicals like drugs and are WAY healthier for you!!)

My company also has teas, oral care products, and supplements that are not effective if you ingest them, so that would be an awesome place to start experimenting! If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me! I would love to help and answer any questions you have.

AWESOME!! I’m excited but overwhelmed. There are so many oils and ways to use them – where do I start and what do with them?!

There are three essential oils I use EVERY DAY, and a few I use quite often. Here are some things you can do with some of those essential oils:

Lavender

Mix a few drops of lavender with some coconut oil, and feel better in MINUTES!! Also an ingredient in my homemade deodorant and dog shampoo. Woof.

 

Peppermintpeppermint essential oil
This is my favorite oil. I could write a book on uses for peppermint! My favorite way to use it right now is for digestion, nausea, and clearing my head. One drop on your belly and you will feel your intestines thank you!! Mix with lavender in a bath to cleanse your system and relax your muscles.

 

PanAway Blend
PanAway Essential OilAn oil blend is a combination of a bunch of essential oils to create and ultimate substance. This is the best for a self-massage after those tough workouts. Or, if you’re like me, when you drop a huge Pyrex dish with a whole chicken in it directly onto your big toe (was NOT wearing steel-toed boots. I work from home; I was wearing slippers). Yes, that happened. I can laugh about it now but just ask my mom how long I was crying on the floor saying “it’s broken!!!!” An hour later after, after some elevation and soaking my foot in Epsom salts & PanAway, I was able to drive to meet a friend. Works wonders!!!

Thieves Blend

How to Use Thieves Essential Oil

With Thieves, flu season doesn’t stand a fighting chance in my body! I use a drop when oil pulling, in my toothpaste, and even a drop with coconut oil in tea if I’m REALLY feeling something coming on. I’m also a huge fan of Thieves dent floss and mouthwash. They also make thieves laundry detergent, hand sanitizer, veggie wash… You get the picture. This ish is AMAZING. 

 

Cedar wood diffused at bedtime to help you feel at home. Frankincense for meditation and grounding. White Angelica for your spiritual side. Joy blend to put you in a good mood. There are tons of oils and countless uses – whatever you are looking to add to your wellness routine, there’s an oil for that!
