I am slowly but surely getting super addicted to essential oils. I know I’m a bit late to the game, but I was skeptical and just didn’t want one more thing to have to spend money on.
But then I started talking to women.
Women who were raving about replacing items in their medicine cabinet with oils, who were adding it to their homemade cleaners to KILL mold & mildew, & who were diffusing it into their homes to create an atmosphere and actually CHANGE the mood of their homes, and who were rubbing them on husbands sore ankles for instant pain relief!
These were women, friends & even family members that I trust…so I started listening!
Slow & Steady Approach to Essential Oils
My approach to essential oils is slow & steady. The buying a lot of high-quality oils at once is inexpensive, so I have decided to go slow and do it in an affordable way.
I’m excited to slowly but surely share with you my journey.
So far, I have bought and used Tea Tree Oil, Lemon Oil, & Lavender Oil.
I use Tea Tree Oil in my Epsom salt mix to take detox baths.
I also have also used lemon essential oil in my homemade glass cleaner which gives it a lovely cheerful scent and influences my mood while I clean.
My Favorite Essential Oil Diffuser
My favorite and most recent purchase for essential oils was an AromaSoft Ultra Sonic Essential Oil Diffuser. This diffuser is budget friendly and after trying several different brands and types, this is the one I love.It is awesome!
An oil diffuser is a wonderful way to get the therapeutic scent of oil into a larger space. This one fills up my whole living room and dining room.
You fill the diffuser with water, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or blend a few scents together (so fun…I love Peppermint and Lemon together!) and enjoy the scent in your home.
It is so great to know the scent is healthy and good for my family to breathe…unlike many scented candles out there that are full of chemicals and allergens!
So far my favorite oils are citrus essential oils —Lemon, Grapefruit & Lime— as they are great for uplifting the mood and good for any season.
With 4 females in the house and 3 of them being teens and preteens, a good mood lifter is always appreciated!
I am now researching an oil to diffuse for dry membranes. I am on a new medication that causes my sinuses to become so dry!
The dry winter air of the Midwest sure does not help.
I am looking into some Peppermint Oil and Oregano Oil to put onto cotton balls into a mason jar and inhale to soothe. This will be a fun mixture to attack my poor sinuses. I will let you know how that goes.
What Brand Of Essential Oils Do I Use?
As far as what brand I decided to go with…well…that was a big and long and drawn out decision.
I did a bunch of reading and got more and more discouraged with the competitiveness of the different oil companies.
Many comments I have read about different companies from one company representative to another were just plain not nice!
I believe there are numerous good companies out there selling oils, large and small, but I personally prefer to go with a company that is smaller & does not rely on pyramid- type sales.
This is a very personal decision, and it truly is an individual decision. If you use a larger company, please know that is fine too & that I am just happy that everyone is pursuing health in alternative and healthful ways.
Despite the numerous great companies out there, there ARE companies out there with very cheaply made, diluted and impure oils, and I did not want to be throwing my money away!
It was important to me to choose a brand I can be confident in and believe in.
Rocky Mountain Oils Essential Oils It is!
Rocky Mountian Oils is the company I decided to go with. Their offer oils that are all organic & pesticide-free, wild-crafted (if available), a wonderful company with great smelling oils for really reasonable prices.
They source their essential oils from reputable distillers that they know personally and trust.
They also allow me to link their products here, and if you make a purchase after clicking through to their site to mine, I will earn a commission, but your price remains the same.
If you are an essential oils lover or just intrigued by them and want to support New Nostalgia in this way, please know I am so very appreciative of your support and the funds will go back into New Nostalgia to make it an even better place for us all.
