I have been an essential oil fan for a few years now. To be honest, I kind of go through phases with it. Truth is, I definitely notice a difference when I use them! I have a diffuser in the kitchen. Now that we're home 24-7, I have that baby on all the time. I also have a diffuser in all of our rooms and use nighttime blends to help with sleep, relaxation, etc. The kids love their diffusers and have so much fun putting the oils in themselves. (It's the little things.)
If someone is fighting a cough, cold or really any flu-like symptoms, I use specific blends for that. I suffer from migraines and if I feel a slight headache before bed, I use a blend to help with my headaches. I also love using a peppermint blend if anyone has a tummy ache. Ryder has gone through phases of night terrors (they are so scary and I feel so terrible for him) and when I use blends to help him relax, they seem to help.
I do not sell essential oils and haven't used any brand other than doTerra. My friend is a huge essential oil user/lover and she swears by doTerra! I love this adorable kid roller kit. The kids love this. And I also keep a diffuser in my car (especially in the fall and winter).
I am definitely no pro, but here are my go-to blends:
Wild orange, peppermint
Peppermint, cinnamon, rosemary
Lemon, lime, peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, on guard
Peppermint, frankincense, lavender
Lavender, wild orange, peppermint
Daily Blend/Germ Buster:
On guard, lemon, melaleuca
Lavender, wild orange, cedar wood, on guard, serenity
