Introducing essential oils to your everyday life has so many benefits, and starting the day diffusing oils is a great way to get your day off on the right foot. Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties.
Here at Begin Within Family Wellness, we diffuse essential oils throughout the day to help keep our clients relaxed and anxiety free while they are visiting. We have compiled our top essential oils that we love on a daily basis:
Lavender is the perfect starter oil. It has a very clean floral smell that helps to promote a feeling of calm. It is also a great oil to dab behind your ears and on your neck to help relieve tension that has built up on those extra long days.
Lemon is great for more than just diffusing. Whether you want a little lemon in your water, or as an added ingredient in your guacamole it is so versatile. The fresh feeling that comes with the scent of lemon is invigorating.
Eucalyptus is somewhat of a sweeter scent, but has qualities that help to open up the airway. Normally you see a lot of saunas that diffuse with eucalyptus. This is a great oil to diffuse while taking a hot shower in the morning.
Bergamot is a citrus scent that is described as uplifting and relaxing. It is an oil that can also help with oily or troubled skin. It is a photosensitive oil, so it should not be applied to skin if it is going to be in direct sunlight within 48 hours.
Thieves is a blended oil made by Young Living. The combination of cinnamon, lemon, clove and rosemary has immune boosting qualities, and also is a great cleaning agent.
Keep in mind there are so many different essential oil brands out there, and we urge you to do your research when choosing the right oils for you. Connect with us and tell us what is your must-have daily essential oil!
