Alright, I’ve tried holding out. This can be over-posted and I don’t want to be *that blogger* that does something MLM and then you start tuning out everything she posts because it might be selling you something.
Because I’m not.
I just really love essential oils and since blogging is such a big part of my life, I have to share!
In the hustle of packing, moving, and getting settled here in Small Town, USA, I really got out of the habit of using essential oils much at all. But now that we are into routines and back into “normal” life, I’ve found myself reaching for them again. And again. And again. And I’m remembering their benefits, which makes me reach for even more.
Right now, I’m loving the blends most of all. I use Whisper as a perfume. I was a Bath and Body Works girl when I was a teenager, then “graduated” to Victoria’s Secret scents (I’m a recovering conesseuir). When I went hippie, I had to say goodbye to all those toxins (and a happy farewell to the fragrance-induced headaches!). It also meant I couldn’t get the adorable Kate Spade perfume with the bow on it for Christmas for myself. Whisper is light but lasting, feminine, and the ylang ylang adds a light sensual hint that reminds me that I’m closer to 30 than I am 20 (translation: it makes me feel like a grown-up).
I’ve been using our diffuser more, too. At night I like to use vetiver, cedar wood, and juniper berry to relax us, and I’ll use a drop of Serenity blend on my feet and Tristan’s. During the day I diffuse mostly citrus oils since I’m a Sister Mary Sunshine kind of person and citrus blends just go with that mood.
And of course, I can’t forget my myriad of personal care products that I get to use daily. The shampoo, citrus bliss bar soap, Verage skin care set, toothpaste, and deodorant are all coming to me free! These are all things I would normally make myself, so I’m even happier at the saved time of just clicking the order button. And “free” is kind of my favorite deal.
Tristan loves essential oils too, and will ask for them (****OILS USED ON CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS APPROPRIATELY DILUTED AND APPLIED****). It makes me so happy to be able to go to the cabinet for something for my family and know that I am able to meet their needs with wholesome products.
As I said, please hear my heart in sharing this part of my life with you. I honestly do not remember life without my little bottle friends in the cabinet, and I am so thankful to our friend Hollie for introducing us to them 2 1/2 years ago!
Do you use essential oils in your home?
