My Top Ten Essential Oils & How I Use Them


I keep this on hand for relaxation, sleep and general first aid. One drop on a tissue tucked inside your pillow case is all you need.


My personal favorite for all cold and flu symptoms. I use this often during wildfire season if there is smoke in the air. It helps to disguise the smoke smell as well as open breathing passages.


I use this a lot around my home placing a few drops on a cotton ball or paper towel and place inside a stinky garbage can. A similar use is on a cotton ball inside vacuum cleaner bag.


I feel like Orange is one of those universal scents. The smell of Citrus oils just brighten my day and children just love them.

Tea Tree

For all those cuts and scrapes. Insect bites, hint- using a cotton swab dab a drop on those annoying bites.


I love a combination of Rosemary and Peppermint to keep me alert and focused. I love this in the car. See the recipe below for a Memory Formula Spray.


Same as above plus wonderful for headaches as it increases blood flow. Useful in any sports massage blends. Be sure to dilute in a carrier oil and avoid eyes!  I don’t recommend this in the bath and it can sting sensitive areas.


One of my favorites to use during meditation or during a yoga practice.


This is my go to essential oil for bruising. It is known by science to be the most effective treatment for bruises, inflammations and scars but always dilute it in a good carrier oil. Most often combined with Rose Hip seed oil.

Four Thieves Blend

This is a blend of the finest Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. Developed according to the legend about the four thieves in 15th century England who used these and other aromatics to protect themselves while robbing plague victims.
