Essential Oils in the Home, Part Two

Essential oils are a natural way to get rid of odor in your home. They can also be used to set mood, spirituality, physical well being, and even in your day to day beauty routine. There are countless ways to use and mix essential oils to meet a users needs. In this post I will share a recipe and a way to deliver the aromatherapy into a home to get rid of smell and to set the energy tone.

It is best to get an organic oil that is cold pressed or steam distilled and contains only pure aromatic plant oils. The best way to find pure oils is to look at the ingredients on the bottle, which should be dark amber glass.

Now that I’ve shared a very basic idea of how to buy essential oils, the next step is what to buy to get started. Citrus oils  are best for a home with heavy odors and needs to be perked up with energy. These essential oils include tangerine, wild orange, grapefruit, lime, and lemon. On the flip side of the coin if a home has odor and the user wants to introduce calming properties to the room then lavender would work best.

Not everyone wants to spend a lot of money to get started with essential oils. The oils can be pricey and to start using them can be expensive.  An inexpensive method would be to use the essential oil as a room spray. Take a small glass spray bottle with 3 to 4 ounces of water and add 10 to 15 drops of the essential oil. Swirl the mixture gently and just spray in the room and/or area that needs freshened.

I think that is enough for this post which means there will be a part three. Coming soon!
