Use Essential Oils Easily and Effortlessly 

By: Lori Thayer

Don’t you hate when you have something but keep forgetting to use it. You know you should but it is never available or feasible to do so when you think about it? It can seem difficult to use essential oils when you don’t know how or what to use them for. You might a stomach ache but your peppermint essential oil isn’t with you. Maybe you realize after a big argument that some Peace and Calming might have diffused the situation.

Essential oils can be a great aid for your health and even work as a natural first aid kit. One or two drops of a pure, therapeutic essential oil goes a long way. Here are some ways to use essential oils throughout your day effortlessly.

Apply them as part of your morning routine

When you get up and wash your face, this is the perfect time to apply some oils. Make it part of getting dressed for the day. I apply Joy over my heart, Yang Ylang or Abundance on my wrists and neck and White Angelica on my crown and down my body in a sweep.

Carry oils with you

Essential oils come in small packages so they are easy to take anywhere. However, if you want to carry a few with you it is wise to transfer them into a smaller pouch to carry along. I put my most commonly used oils in smaller vials and hang them from my purse. Having my oils nearby is how I was able to stop a racing heart with lavender essential oil.

Roll-on essential oils are a great way to use oils on the go as well, simply take the cap off and roll in on or inhale.

Another great way to use essential oils is to always have your oil with you is to wear jewelry that diffuses. I recently bought a diffuser necklace on Etsy. I love being able to have the scent of the oil waft up to me throughout the day. It has already kept me calm on stressful days. Watch my product review video of this essential oil necklace diffuser below.

Next I’ll be looking for a bracelet diffuser option for the days I don’t want to wear the necklace.

Diffuse in your home

There are many ways to diffuse in your home from simply adding a few drops of oil to a cotton ball and placing it in the cents to using a more expensive diffuser. I’ve used both methods. Nothing beats the lovely scent of oils cleaning the air in your home and promoting a healthy, enjoyable atmosphere.

Use Essential Oils in your bath

Lastly, use some oils in your bath. at night. Just add a few drops white the water is running, then relax and enjoy. I highly recommend Lavender for baths.

    Great article! Thanks for all of the ideas for different ways to remember the oils. I really like your diffuser necklace! I am highly allergic to several of the oils I’ve tried — breaking out in hives when I put them on my skin — so this would be a great option! Thank you!

    Awesome Lori, I have to look @ Etsi to see if there is one that I like…THanks for the idea!

    Lori, one more thing…I saw a little video where somebody used the empty bottles and jut put them in the bathtub, that way they were totally empty before you discard the bottles. I thought that was a great idea!!

      I use this trick to get the last of the oils from my bottle as well.

    I was recently given a necklace diffuser. Which oils should I use so I don’t smell like a bag of walking incense? Thanks.

    • http://lorithayer.com Lori Thayer

      Hi Krisa, It will depend on your personal scent preferences. I usually use Young Living’s Peace & Calming (http://bit.ly/13AGYmr) which doesn’t smell like incense to me at all. Add just a drop or two though to avoid the scent being too strong.

      Other essential oils I would suggest trying are Lavender, While Angelica, or Harmony.
