Want to get into essential oils but don’t know where to start? We have your back! Here are some of our favorite essential oils and all of the ways that you can use them. In this blog, we are featuring Young Living- one of the best brands when it comes to 100% pure essential oils!

Lavender

Lavender is used to relax the mind and body with its calming clean, floral notes. It also provides you with a sense of comfort and security. You can find lavender in Loma’s Molding Crème and Firm Hold Gel! We use lavender to soothe the hair and skin for the healthiest results possible.

Add a few drops to a cup of Epsom salts for a bath to help unwind.
Diffuse to freshen up a room or to create a relaxing and calm environment.
Add a few drops to your lotions, shampoos, and skin care products.
Rub oil on the bottom of your feet before bed or spritz your pillow with distilled water and Lavender mixed in a spray bottle to help you fall asleep faster.
Place a few drops on wool dryer balls and toss into the dryer to freshen your laundry.

Peppermint

Peppermint is a fresh, cool way to give your mood a boost of positivity and heal any discomfort.

Diffuse to boost energy when you’re feeling sluggish, clear the mind, and open up respiratory airways.
Add a drop to each of your temples to relieve head tension. 
Rub a few drops on your stomach to soothe minor stomach discomfort.
Dilute a few drops with a carrier oil and rub on sore muscles after your workout.


Lemon

Lemon has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. It also contains high levels of d-limonene which is believed to support a healthy immune system. Find lemon aromatherapy in Loma’s Violet Conditioner, which will brighten your blonde in no time.

Add a few drops to dishwasher to help remove hard water spots or extra stuck on food.
Use 1-2 drops to remove gum, grease, and anything else sticky from most surfaces.
Diffuse for greater mental clarity and to help uplift mood and create lasting energy.


Frankincense

Frankincense has a woodsy, warm aroma that promotes feelings of satisfaction, relaxation, and overall wellness.

Apply to the temples and wrists to relieve stress.
Rub a few drops to relieve tense neck muscles.
Diffuse when meditating, doing yoga, or just relaxing.
Apply several times per week to nails and base of nails to strengthen them.


Thieves

Thieves is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. This blend is super helpful when dealing with issues relating to the immune system.

Add several drops along with water into a spray bottle for cleaning.
Refresh musty carpets by adding 5 drops of Thieves to a cup of baking soda; combine well and let sit overnight until the oil is absorbed. Sprinkle over carpets and vacuum thoroughly.
Add 1 drop Thieves and 4 drops carrier oil to the bottoms of your feet to boost your immune system.
