Increasing in popularity, more people are choosing a natural approach to wellness by incorporating essential oils into their regular daily life. These oils contain powerful properties that support our total well-being; physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Since adopting a habit of using essential oils, I have more energy, calm and stamina to support my busy lifestyle. Here are some of the most effective ways I use essential oils. These brilliant hacks can easily be used by anyone to reap the amazing benefits.

Brilliant Essential Oil Hacks for Everyday Life:

Extend the life of your oils to save money –  Simply add 1-2 drops of a carrier oil to the end of your bottle and you’ll get another use or two out of it ensuring you get the most for your money.

Add to your air filter – You can have your home smell great all the time by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil to your air filter every time you change it. This simple tip will leave your home smelling amazing!

Natural Cleaning Scrub – Make a natural cleaning scrub that is both effective and safe by adding 6-8 drops of Thieves essential oil, baking soda and water to a mason jar. This paste is ideal for using in tubs, showers, sinks and stalls and will leave them smelling fresh and looking sparkling clean.

Add to fireplace logs –  Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil scent to fireplace logs prior to burning for an added treat to a crackling fire.

Eliminate odors in smelly shoes – place a drop or two of Young Living’s Purification blend onto a cotton ball and place in your shoes. This also works well for garbage cans and diaper pails to get rid of those musty smells.

Rinse agent for dishes – Add 2 drops of lemon essential oil to your dishwasher for a powerful rinse agent that will leave those dishes spot free and fresh.

Natural Fabric Softener – Combine 1 drop of tea tree essential oil with one cup of white vinegar and add to your laundry and you have a natural and inexpensive fabric softener that won’t irritate the skin.

Easy Air & Carpet Freshener – Place a couple of drops of a favorite essential oil or blend on a tissue or piece of paper and vacuum it up to freshen the air and your carpet every time you vacuum. Replace it only when you replace the bag. If your vacuum has a filter you can place 1-2 drops on the filter for the same effect. {Make sure to check out our DIY Carpet Deodorizer too}

DIY Car Diffuser – Apply a couple of drops of essential oil to a wooden clothespin. The wood will absorb the oil and you can clip anywhere in your car for a fresh scent while traveling.

Fight the signs of aging – add Frankincense essential oil to your beauty regimen. Frankincense can reduce the appearance of scars and helps regenerate skin cells, tightening sagging skin. It’s great for improving your skins balance and tone while correcting fine lines and wrinkles.

Homemade Makeup Remover –  Combine 5 drops of lavender essential oil with ½ cup coconut oil. Wipe off with a tissue or soft cloth and leave behind radiant beautiful skin.

Essential oils on the go  – Add essential oils to a scarf, gloves or a diffuser necklace to enjoy the benefits and wonderful scent while on the go.

Young Living Essential Oils New Year

There are many, many brands of essential oils available on the market including ones you can find in stores, online retailers such as Amazon & more. However, both Sia & I have extensively researched using essential oils with our family & we have decided to use Young Living essential oils. We feel so confident with them that we are selling them so that others can benefit from better wellness for their families, too, as our families have benefited in the 2+ years that we have been using them in our homes. {This is the first time in 8 years of blogging that we have ever felt passionate about a product to sell it ourselves.}

They are a bit pricier than what you’ll find in the stores, but we know that they have a very strict Seed to Seal process to ensure that they are pure, therapeutic grade oils with nothing added to them,  that we feel completely safe using with our kids & our families. If you are wanting to make your own DIY cleaners, then you want to know everything you are putting into those cleaners and with these Young Living essential oils, we know that we can trust that they have absolutely no chemicals in them.
