Good Morning everyone! Today I wanted to share something a little different with you. I have recently been thinking of adding some new fun stuff here relating to my love for essential oils, delicious recipes and all things parenting. As many of you may know, I am a stay at home Mama of 2 little girls. Being a Wife and a Mom is my life so I would love to share some of that on here for you as well. Don’t you worry your little heart… if you are here for the decor related blogs, I can assure you I have plenty of that to come!
Okay let’s move on. Today I wanted to share my favorite brand of Essential Oils, my top 5 oils, how we use them and why I love them so much. I started using Essential Oils about 3 years ago. Growing up, my mom would use a lot of natural stuff in our house. She mainly used Herbs and natural remedies like when we were sick and such, but it was by this foundation that I kind of started my love of all of the natural stuff too. Now, I am not perfect. I still use a lot of stuff that is not natural. But one thing we love to use are Essential Oils.
The company that we buy our oils from is called Edens Garden. You can check them out at www.Edensgarden.com. A friend told me about them, so of course I had to check them out. The company is incredible. They only sell 100% pure therapeutic oils and are really focused on keeping their best quality while offering affordable oils. I would say I couldn’t agree more with that. The oils are so great, smell amazing and you can tell their quality is top notch. And let’s talk about their prices… they are super affordable. I am sure a lot of you have heard of the companies that are pretty popular, but Edens Garden is way more inexpensive. And like I said they for sure do not compromise the quality of their oils by any means. They also offer a bunch of other really cool products including perfumes, salt soaks, diffusers, body oils and soaps. Oh and they also have an essential oil line for kids which I have not tried yet, but I definitely plan to in the near future!
So now onto my top 5 favorite oils…
This is one that I came to love because I had major headaches related to allergies last spring. I was getting headache after headache and didn’t want to keep taking medicine for it. I decided to give this one a try and it definitely did not disappoint. I took a tiny drop of oil and mixed it with coconut oil and rubbed it behind my ears, and to my temples. It helps to relax the muscles to relieve those headaches. Oh and did I say it smells AMAZING???
Here are the oils to make this synergy blend-
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Peppermint (Mentha piperita), Rosemary(Rosmarinus officinalis), Frankincense (Boswellia carterii), Basil (Ocimum basilicum), Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Spearmint (Mentha spicata), Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum)
This is one that we use all the time before bed time. We use this in our diffuser and the room smells heavenly! It has a ton of great oils in it to make you relax and calm down before bed. It is definitely one of our favorites to diffuse after a long day. We like to start diffusing about 10 minutes or so before we lay down so it gives the room a nice smell and we can fully enjoy the smell of the oils while we rest.
This one contains-
As a stay at home mom of two little girls who like to fight one minute, then love each other the next, you can imagine some days can be completely stressful. On those days I love to take a nice hot bath and drop in 2 to 3 drops of this oil with some epsom salts and even a spoonful of coconut oil. It is the perfect stress relief at the end of a stressful day. It calms me down and gets me to relax. My favorite part is that it is relaxing, yet it smells like a hint of citrus in each bottle
This synergy blends has these in it-
This is an oil that I personally love to use to diffuse in my living room especially after I have cleaned the house. I also love to mix a few drops of this with a mix of vinegar and water to clean parts of my house. It has such a beautiful smell, so fresh and so clean. In fact, something about it really reminds me and takes me back to the days that I spent at my Uncles apartment at the New Jersey shore during the summers with my Grandma. We would visit there and stay for a week during the summer and whatever it is in this oil brings me back to those precious times, spent with two of my favorite people.
This one contains-
Lemon (Citrus limon), Lime (Citrus aurantifolia), Siberian Fir Needle (Abies sibirica), Austrian Fir Needle (Abies alba), Pine (Pinus sylvestris), Citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus), Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia), Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum)
This one is a huge lifesaver when we are not feeling our best! It is so perfect for the common cold, when you have the sniffles, and just not feeling like yourself. It has some amazing oils in it to make the perfect blend with a nice cooling effect. We will use this in the diffuser at night time when we aren’t feeling well and it smells and works so good.
