13 creative ways (you didn’t know) you can use essential oils
The power of scent is strong; it can draw us back to our favorite memories. That’s why citrus oil can remind us of a relaxing day at the beach, or why conifer scents make you think of a hike with your besties. But scents can do so much more than create nostalgia! Experience the versality of essential oils:
You know the inconvenient price tag residue left on mirrors, plates, and cups? Apply 1–2 drops of Lemon essential oil on a cloth and wipe away the gunk. Let Lemon oil save you from a sticky situation!
2. Let your locks shine!
Shiny hair, do care. Warm a few drops of Cedarwood essential oil in your hand and massage your scalp for healthier-looking hair.
3. Pamper your pretty self.
Create a spa-like atmosphere with the calming aroma of Lavender essential oil. Mix 1 cup of Epsom salt and 4 drops of Lavender oil in your hot bath, then lie back and relax.
4. Invigorate your home cleaning.
Add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to your naturally derived floor, window, and surface cleaning solution for a fresh, clean aroma. Do not use Lemon oil on granite or stone, as it may etch the surface.
Incorporate a drop of Rose essential oil to your evening moisturizer to support healthy-looking skin. Try using other essential oils, but avoid applying citrus ones like Tangerine essential oil before spending time in the sun due to photosensitivity.
6. Scrub-a-dub in the tub.
Wash away your work day with a homemade body scrub. All you need is coconut oil, Epsom salt, and Lavender essential oil.
7. Catch some zzz’s.
Mornings after a good night’s rest are the best! Diffuse essential oils like Lavender, Vetiver, Cedarwood, German Chamomile, and Angelica to help create a calm, peaceful sleep. For more nighttime routine ideas, visit our blog post here.
