Ten essential oils you should own

Every one has heard that a woman should own at least one little black dress, an emergency sew kit, & a cookbook.... But what about a care kit with the basic essential oils?

Just as our medicine cabinets are stocked with first aid supplies, I think that we should also have a stock of select essential oils. Basic oils that can be used for a variety of needs for everyone in the house.

Here is my suggested list:

Lavender : useful for burns, insomnia, anxiety, insect repellent, antiviral, antibacterial, antidepressant.

Tea Tree : Anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antiviral.

Peppermint : a digestive aid, breath freshener, aids the respiratory and circulatory system.

Chamomile : a sleep aid, anti-inflammatory, useful in skin conditions and teething in babies, calming.

Rosemary : mental clarity, good for muscle tone, antiseptic, antiviral, stimulates hair growth, used in treating colds & coughs.

Sweet Orange : Anti depressant, cleansing, calming

Lemon : focus, helps disperse cellulite, stimulates the digestive system, calms tension headaches.

Geranium : an affinity with the reproductive system, used in skin care, can be a sedative.

Eucalyptus : antiviral, antiseptic, effective with soothing coughs, aches and pains

Myrrh : a quick healer of wounds, useful on dry cracked skin, useful in treating fungal infections.

Over the years I have grown to love dearly my essential oils. I am always amazed by their versatility and ability. I try to incorporate their use as often as I can. I know that once you see the practicality of them and are not skeptical you will grow to love them too. I hope you find this list useful in your journey to being beautifully well.

**essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin. A carrier oil such as almond or olive is recommended. Can be added to a warm bath, used in steam distillation, inhalation & massage. Essential oils listed here are not to be used as a replacement for medications without the consent of a doctor.
