How to Use Essential Oils Throughout the Day

Diffusing essential oils or combining them with a carrier oil and using them topically can enhance every part of your day! Today we are sharing with you some tips on how to use your essential oils throughout the day. From waking up to the afternoon slump, we’ve got an oil for that!

Rise & Shine

Adding a few essential oils to your diffuser in the morning can really help uplift you. Using 3 drops of peppermint, 2 drops of lemon, and 2 drops of orange will do the trick. Add more drops of your favorite oil for a more potent smell for those mornings where it’s hard to get out of bed.

Beauty Regiment

Adding a few drops of our Clary SageBergamot, or Ylang Ylang Essential Oil to your lotion for a soothing skin moisturizer. 

Add a few drops of our Basil Essential Oil to your shampoo and massage into your scalp to encourage healthy hair.

Dilute our Bergamot Essential Oil with a carrier oil and apply it to your skin during or after a shower to relax and uplift.

Use our Citrus Boost Essential Oil Roll-on as an all-natural perfume. 

Head to School or Work:

Roll on some of our Guard Against Essential Oil Blend to your child’s wrists when seasonal irritants are present. Then throw it in your purse to take to work with you.

Add our Head Up Essential Oil Blend to a carrier oil, and apply to temples and/or neck to encourage relaxation when feeling tension or stress.

Use our Porcelain Car Diffusers and Peppermint Essential Oil in your car for a relaxing commute into work. 

Use a few drops of your favorite essential oil in your face mask to make wearing it for long periods of time bearable. Learn more about how to do this HERE.
