In our house, we love using essential oils. There are so many great uses and benefits that these handy little helpers boast, I could truly go on and on about them.. But today I’m going to share my favorite oils and how you can use them to create peace in your home.
Now, I don’t know about you but my house is a lot more peaceful when it’s clean.. I would like to introduce my odor killing, grease busting friend, Lemon. This little powerhouse lives next to my kitchen sink. After dinner is done, the dishes get washed and our sink is promptly cleaned and wiped down with Lemon Essential Oil. Not only does it cut through grease and grime but it has antibacterial properties and gives off a fresh clean scent that sticks around. Place a few drops in the bottom of your clean sink and a couple on your sponge to keep things smelling fresh and happy. Bye, stinky bacon grease.
Thieves or On Guard blends
This powerful combination of Clove, Citrus, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary promotes a healthy immune system and guards against seasonal and environmental threats. Put these oils to use when you are deep cleaning and sanitizing your home. Consider purchasing a cleaner concentrate of these proprietary blends to naturally disinfect surfaces and deodorize carpets and upholstery. I use these oils to clean my kitchen counters and table, spray down mattresses when replacing bedding and deodorize carpets after vacuuming. Having a home free of pet and everyday odors is a first step to creating a more peaceful environment in your home.
Lavender & Chamomile
These calming oils pair well in your bedroom to promote good sleep and reduce anxiety. Place a few drops of each in a cool mist diffuser before bed and enjoy a spa-like aroma and better quality sleep. Even better, put down your phone and pair this routine with a cup of sleepytime tea and good book. Breathe deep and enjoy the long list of benefits that Lavender and Chamomile have to offer.
Valor or Balance Blends
Perhaps my absolute favorite essential oil by far, Balance by doTERRA. The blend of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile and Coconut Oil promotes feelings of relaxation and calm and the sweet woody aroma is so grounding and peaceful. I regularly diffuse this oil in my sons room and in other shared spaces of the home. This blend is ideal for stabilizing emotions and creating a tranquil environment. This blend or it’s similar counterparts is a must have for creating peace in your home.
Creating peace in our home is so important to us as parents and adults with full time jobs. Having a sanctuary to come home to is essential for our mental health and creating a healthy and comforting environment for our son. I hope you enjoy these awesome oils and their benefits as much as me and my family.
