Just the Essentials
These essential oils are versatile, powerful, and easy to use.
Lavender: widely known for its ability to ease nerves and support a healthy nervous system; however, that is just one of many ways it can be used. How many times have you had a sunburn in the summer? Lavender is a powerhouse for skin, specifically burns. It is said that lavender can take the redness out of sunburn overnight while soothing the burning sensation. Other skin issues that lavender can help with are fungal infections, dry skin of all levels, and blemishes.
Frankincense: one of the most important essential oils to keep around. Although high-quality frankincense can be on the more expensive side, it is worth every penny. Frankincense is special for its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Very few things can penetrate that barrier in both eastern and western medicine. Those with focus issues, brain fog, or neurodegenerative illnesses could benefit from the use of frankincense due to its known ability to work with the brain. It is also known to even out skin complexion and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, making it perfect for adding to your skincare routine. Cuts, scrapes, and bruises are also on the list of ways frankincense can be used in the home. It supports healing on a cellular level while reducing long-term effects like scarring.
Lemon: full of vitamin C, making it great for strengthening fingernails for all my ladies looking to grow healthier, longer-natural nails. Lemon oil is also known to boost overall mood. Its scent is uplifting and promotes positive mindsets. Those who struggle with seasonal depression have said that diffusing lemon essential oil brightens their mood and boosts their overall mental wellbeing. Lemon essential oil is antibacterial and antiviral, making it supportive to a healthy home and immune system. It is perfect for everyone in your home!
