6 Must Have Essential Oils at Home

Today on OiB, I’m going to tell you about essential oils. The first question in your mind would be, why are they important for you? Let me tell you. They are so important for you and your health because they are organic and natural without the toxic elements found in mainstream home products.

Nature is the best remedy and that’s what I believe in. Without much ado, Let’s go through the best essential oils for you to have for your home:

  1. Lavender

It is the most versatile essential oil and that’s why it tops my list. What it does? In two words, it is great for skin care. It will relax your body, heals bruises and cuts, and also cures skin irritation.

That’s not the only great part. Its aroma is so refreshing that it makes you feel as if you are in a garden surrounded by beautiful blossoms.

With the use of DIY lavender home-made products, you will be physically and mentally relaxed which will help to get energy for the things you really need to do. Also, very useful to help you fall asleep.

What Lavender Oil heals?

  • Skin rashes
  • Pimples
  • Headaches
  • Burns caused by insect bites
  • Small burns
  • Cuts and scrape

As I always say about lavender, it does a magic – hard to believe unless experienced.

  1. Tea Tree

Your skin is a mirror of the beautiful heart you have. Allow tea tree oil to keep your skin smooth and bless it with amazing benefits so that you look more beautiful that you think.

  • Keeps it healthy irrespective of exposure to pollution
  • Keep foot odor away
  • Remove toe nail fungus
  • Diminish cold sores
  • When you have a bottle of tea tree oil, you have not to worry about first aid
  • Heals burns caused due to an insect bite

What Tree Oil Cures?

  • Foot fungus of athletes
  • Eczema
  • Pimples
  • Colds
  • Nail fungus
  • Dandruff

Add a few drops of it in your shampoo and conditioner to allow your hair to retain its original form. Beautiful skin complemented with beautiful hair is all that tree tea oil gives you every time you use. That’s why I love it.

  1. Lemon Oil

The nature of citrus is at work here. This cleansing oil offers astonishing health benefits for you to avail. Read on below.

  • It offers a spiritual experience and arouses psychic awareness.

  1. Peppermint

I, mostly, use peppermint to relieve myself from nausea and constipation. A massage with a mixture of carrier oil and peppermint onto the abdomen reduces stomach cramps.

What it Cures?

  • stomach queasiness
  • Tick under skin
  • Bronchitis

To relieve cough, you can make a DIY mixture with eucalyptus, carrier oil and peppermint. Two drops of oil can be used to appease overheated feet.

  1. Clove Oil

Clove oil is used in dental products. It is very strong so be careful and dilute it first before use.

What Clove Oil Cures?

  • Toothaches
  • Gum disease
  • Burns and wounds
  • Ear aches

I use it mostly for dental purposes, but it can also be used to repel bugs. Just add a few drops to a diffuser to repel bugs from your home.

As it is really concentrated, I don’t recommend its use for sensitive skins.

There you have it. I’m enjoying the many benefits of essentials oils and hope to hear from you too. Tell me about which essential oils you use and why.

Never Be Denied

If something stands between you and your success, move it. Never be denied. –Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Starting with a quote a post is unusual for me, unless its the perfect fit. Chances are you’ve been there before. Across from a woman in a dress that costs more than you’re unemployed tush can hope to make in a month, or on the very distant end of an I’m-not-interested text message. It’s hideous, unfriendly and usually has bad table manners.

It’s called rejection. Unpleasant I know.

After sometimes, I learnt to know and trust that everything will turn out Ok. Regardless of the situation. It takes a lot of energy to stay postive and grateful to what you have. Blogging obviously helps…or kind of. Personally, beside the learning experience, OiB content mirrors my personality, a happy mood. I am grateful that my little life in Asia since I left uni 4 years ago has turned out Ok. By Ok, I mean, yes, you come across some weird situations and behaviour, coupled with cliche and ignorance…Rejection. On both side.

What the sentence says again? “The grass is always greener on the other side”. We all heard it, and felt for its naivety, you and me.

Today, standing with my 3yrs plus in Asia, standing as a 3month old blogger and a lifetime free spirit, I will quote Bob Marley, the precursor. Bob Marley song says. Don’t worry. Everything is gonna be all right.

Wishing you all an awesome day,

Amanda 😉
