When we first moved into our house the first room that I was anxious to get complete was our master bedroom, and our master bathroom. I don't regret that one bit because having a finished space in our home that can be a retreat for me at the end of the day is such a joy. I love having a relaxing and quiet area where I can just relax and unwind.
Over the last couple years I've really gotten into taking baths. I love using bath bombs, Epsom Salts, and even just a few drops of essential oils. It's the perfect way for me to be able to unwind at the end of the day, and listen to an audio book without any interruptions.
One of my favorite things to do while soaking in the tub is putting a few drops of Organic Aroma's essential oils into my new Radiance Light Diffuser. You all know by now how much our family loves essential oils, and diffusing them throughout our home, but one thing I really love about this diffuser is that there is no water involved! If I had a dollar for every time one of my children knocked over a diffuser full of water onto our carpet (I'm looking at you Jay), I would be a very wealthy lady... who could also afford to re-carpet her entire home. I also really love that since it's just the oils and pressurized air working together in the system, you don't have to worry about the scent being diluted.
I've had a few people over the last month or so, reach out to me and ask which essential oils I love and what I use them for, so below is a little list of my favorite oils, and how we use them in our own home.
Tea Tree Oil: We've used this for a lot of skin irritants in our house. Jay came down with muloscum when he was two years old and it lasted for months. Finally we started rubbing tea tree oil on it every day for a few weeks, and the rash finally went away. We've also used it to help discolored toe nails, and recently my friend told me that it can help with splinters. It's a really great go-to oil to have!
Lavender: I love using this oil both topically and aromactically. Mostly for when my kids are having a hard time sleeping when they're sick. I'll rub it on their feet, and diffuse it to help calm them down.
Sweet Orange and Grapefruit: I love diffusing these oils in the house to help motivate me and keep me energized throughout the day. They also make the house smell fresh and clean, so bonus for that.
Peppermint: This is the first oil that I ever had any expirience with. I had a five week head cold that wasn't letting up, and a friend told me to press a drop of this to the roof of my mouth, and all of a sudden I could breath through my nose for the first time in weeks. I've used it since for cold and things and it works wonders.
