4 essential oils essential that every home needs
Lavender is the best all round, multipurpose essential oil, and it smells divine.
As an antiseptic/antibacterial: 1 drop on a zit helps dry it up;
Relaxant: a couple of drops on your pillow will help you sleep; a drop rubbed on your temples will help a headache; a few drops in a bath at the enf of a hard day will revive your soul.
Eucalyptus is such a refreshing, uplifting aroma. This is my favourite oil for making a house smell fresh and clean without heavy chemicals.
It is also antibacterial -
I add a few drops to a spray bottle filled with water and use it to spray my kitchen and bathroom surfaces.
Eucalyptus also makes an excellent stain remover - for oil stains I blot the area with Eucalyptus, then place a layer of paper towel, and go over it with a gentle iron to draw out the oil.
Rosemary helps concentration and memory and is must have if you work at home like I do.
I place a few drops in the oil burner in my office when I am working.
4. Any citrus oil.
Lemon, lime, mandarin, orange, grapefruit, tangerine or a blend of any of these.
I call these my happy oils. When the fresh citrus aroma hits my nostrils it makes me feel happy.
