I use essential oils for just about everything – I use them in my smoothies, I use them as medicine, I diffuse them in my home, and I like to boost my cleaning products with them as well.
The list is just endless.
Essential oils truly are nature’s gifts to us, and they come in little potent packages.
Have you started enjoying the benefits of essential oils on yourself?

One of the most basic and primary essential oils you should have on hand is lavender oil.
This magical oil has numerous amazing benefits and will definitely come in handy if you have little ones to watch over.
The aroma from lavender oil is heavenly and is great to diffuse in your home; you only need about 3-4 drops.
You can also apply it to your hands, wrists, chest, neck, and feet. Some people find it best to dilute 2-3 drops of the oil with 1-2 drops of water when applying directly to the skin.
You can also apply some to your hand, then cup both hands around your mouth and breathe deeply. Inhalation of lavender essential oil can be very therapeutic.
One of my favorite ways to benefit from lavender oil is from tea. Pour a couple of drops into your tea or brew a lavender blend for a wonderful relaxing treat.
Using these methods of application, lavender essential oil can:
- Help You Sleep
Lavender oil has a soothing aroma that can ease insomnia and help you get an overall restful sleep at night.
- Relieve Anxiety
Using lavender oil can have a calming and relaxing effect that eases tension from stress, nervousness, and anxiety.
- Ease Pain From Minor Burns
Putting a few drops of lavender oil on a minor burn can help ease the pain from the burn, lower swelling, and even help guard against blistering.
- Moisturize Your Skin
Get relief from dry, chapped, sunburned, or eczema skin problems with the smoothing and moisturizing effects of lavender oil.
- Clean and disinfect minor cuts/wounds
Lavender oil helps to stop bleeding of minor cuts and scrapes. It is also an anti-bacterial so it will clean and disinfect these wounds as well. Apply 2-3 drops to the infected area.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
