Because they are all natural and if used in small, appropriate doses non-toxic to our bodies, they are safe to use in cleaning, in cosmetics and in other areas of your home, work and elsewhere!

Endless Uses

You may be thinking that these lovely oils are only used to provide an inviting fragrance into your home, but they can do so much more! Essential oil uses are abundant, and they are so versatile! For instance, you can use them for:

  • Cleaners – Adding a few drops of lemon and tea tree essential oils to a few ounces of warm water makes a great cleaner, and will naturally disinfect non-porous surfaces, such as countertops or tables. You can also use a mixture of eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, and warm water to keep mold off of your shower curtain.
  • Sunscreen – Mixing lavender essential oils with coconut oil, zinc oxide, shea butter, and helichrysum oil makes a wonderful homemade sunscreen that is non-toxic and smells amazing.
  • Toothpaste or mouthwash - your Listerine and Colgate are just a variety of chemicals mixed with peppermint and eucalyptus. Make your own toothpaste and mouthwash at home.
  • Cosmetics. - adding some lavender, orange or rosemary to a plain lotion or to unscented hand soap is very  easy and useful.
  • Pesticide - put citronella, rosemary, tea tree and eucalyptus into a spray bottle with a small amount of rubbing alcohol and the rest water to make a very effective insecticide.
  • Gifts – Essential oils make great gifts as well, whether it’s for the holidays or a special occasion like a bridal or baby shower.
