(--) How am I Using Essential Oils today?
One way I am using essential oils is diffusing.  Not just today, but I like diffusing essential oils every day.  It is an easy way to do something nice and beneficial for my family that I can feel good about.  I favor Thieves oil blend but switch it up with another blend (like Purification) or add a single oil to the Thieves at times.  

I have a goal of having a Diffuser  in every room of the house but haven't quite made it yet!  The bedroom diffusers are great to put in a relaxing oil or blend to help with sleep at night or in the day when someone is in their room studying, working on a project or feeling under the weather.  I switch up the oils used according to the need or mood (or when I have run out of the favorites).  

Diffusing in the rest of the house is great to quickly get rid of off odors (ok, that goes for the bedrooms, too).  I believe it helps to purify the air giving the house a clean feel, and also helps lift or calm our moods.  

In addition to Thieves, I like to add Tangerine essential oil in the kitchen for a fresh pick me up.  In the bathrooms Thieves and Peppermint essential oil or Purification, another pure essential oil blend.  In the laundry room I like Thieves plus either Lavender or Clove (strong!) essential oils if it is REALLY  SMELLY!

One daughter likes Stress Away in the bedroom, as it contains Vanilla essential oil, one of her favorite scents.  Different family members have different likes when it comes to the essential oils they prefer.   We are still trying out different ones and will likely have some new faves discovered as we go!

Now, go find YOUR favorite essential oils!  It's fun!

Happy Oiling!
