What are Essential Oils Used For?

If you don't have an idea what essential oils are good for, here is a good list for you to start with. Hint, they aren't just to make your house smell nice!  

Weight Loss

1. Lemon
2. Peppermint
3. Grapefruit

Use the oils in water (citrus oils taste great in water, but start slow with 1 drop as they can cause detox symptoms.) Peppermint is a hot oil, so for things like this capsules are recommended if you ingest.

Sleep Issues 

1. Lavender

2. Cedarwood
3. Peace & Calming
4. Valerian.

Rub a drop behind the ears, between the eyes on the forehead, or on the wrists.


1. Lavender

2. Peppermint
3. Lemon
Add 3 drops of each to a capsule or mix in a bottle and add carrier oil and add to back of neck, base of skull. If having a major allergy attack, add a drop of lavender and swipe inside the cheek.  It doesn't taste so great but works every time!


1.RC - add a drop to the chest and rub in to help cough 

2.Purification - add a drop and rub down outside of throat to help with sore throat
3.Thieves - add to bottom of feet to relieve cold symptoms and help feel better sooner, gargle with a drop in water to help sore throat or add to a diffuser to kill germs in the air
4.Peppermint - add to spine and arm pits to help with fever
5.Breathe Again - add to sides of nose to help with stuffy nose
6.Raven - add to forehead, down sinuses to help with sinus pressure
7.Citrus oils - add 1-2 drops to a glass of water and drink


1.Lemon- add to diffuser or take internally (2 drops of each) 

2.EnRGee - diffuse or add to bottoms of feet or wrists

Stomach Issues 

1.Digize - rub counter clockwise to stomach in a clockwise motion or take internally 

2.Fennel - take 2-3 drops internally for gas 
3.Peppermint - take internally or with added carrier oil to stomach 


This is my favorite focus blend for overly active children. Add a roller top to Vetiver and apply to bottoms of the big toes. Also, mix equal parts Frankincense, Orange,Valor and Carrier Oil then apply on the Back of neck, base of skull.
