Everyday Tips for Using 10 Must-Have Essential Oils

Post by AlleyRose on Fri Apr 01, 2016 10:11 pm

We’ve used essential oils for years and people often ask us our favorite oils.  We decided to take a look at how we use oils day in and day out to give you a great idea of the oils we use on a consistent basis…the oils we can’t live without. There are so many uses for these oils you won’t want to be without them either.

[size=30]These are our 10 Must-Have Essential Oils that we reach for every single day.

Lavender Essential Oil

Uses: Aromatic & Topical (choose Lavender Vitality for internal use)
Lavender is universally regarded as one of the most powerful and versatile essential oils, and the uses for this plant are almost endless. Lavender essential oil is one of the main Young Living products because it offers a host of benefits and a sweet, floral aroma.

See all of our Lavender essential oil recipes here.

Lemon Essential Oil

Uses: Aromatic & Topical (choose Lemon Vitality for internal use)
Lemon (Citrus limon) essential oil includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene. Lemon may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. It takes about 75 lemons to make one 15 ml bottle of lemon oil.

Frankincense Essential Oil

Uses: Aromatic & Topical (choose Frankincense Vitality for internal use)
Frankincense essential oil has an earthy, balsamic aroma that is highly revered for its ability to increase feelings of spirituality and inner strength. Known for a broad range of uses, Frankincense features prominently in Young Living’s skin care line of products.
