Why Essential Oils?

Today we are diving into oils and more oils. Now, I know what you are thinking. What is this new fab people are raving about? Essential oils are essential for a reason and have always been a natural holistic way of healing and easing one’s mind and body, so I am happy that I have had people in my life influence me to use essential oils in all areas of wellness.

I have been educated about oils through a company started in 1993, Young Living.  

We honor our stewardship to champion nature’s living energy, essential oils, by fostering a community of healing and discovery while inspiring individuals to wellness, purpose, and abundance.

Their mission provoked me to ask questions. I started asking more and more questions and meeting those who use essential oils and day after day, sample after sample, I now diffuse and rub oils on the bottom of my feet every night before I sleep.

I have never slept SO good! I have personally used oils to help with sleep, cramps, sickness, muscle tension, and to decrease stress. These are just a few of the many ways oil can help heal, but these are the specific one’s that have personally worked for me.

What are the top 5 ways to use essential oils?

  1. Inspire a positive emotional state – Lavender, Orange, Peppermint
  2. Enhance your physical wellness
  3. Enhance spiritual awareness
  4. Purify your home – Thieves – Check out my cleaner below:
  5. Refine your beauty routine

I have included my favorite oils I have started out with to help my positive state and to purify my home. Today I am actually making a thieves cleaner inspired by Natalie Boddekar (Check out her blog) She has inspired me and is my go-to person with any questions on oils!

I have always strived to get rid of bacteria or pain in the most natural way possible because my body doesn’t react well to certain medications. For example, my hormones are so intense after I took my body on my unhealthy adventure, so my cramps are miserable. I took a Midol a few weeks ago and broke out in hives!

I am now educating myself on alternate ways so read below on how I have used them within these to past few weeks.

How to use these oils? 

I rub them on the desired area, whether that’s my stomach for cramps, neck for tension, or the bottom of my feet! The bottom of our feet have the larges pores and fun fact, if you place an onion on the bottom of your foot, you can taste it in your mouth within 30 seconds! What?!



Thieves essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. It smells SO GOOD!

Thieves are great replacement for cleaning products, toothpaste, dish soap, and numerous bacteria fighting remedies!
