Essential oils 101: Beginner’s guide

Can essential oils change your life? They sure have changed ours! From a Lavender-infused bedtime routine to a cleaner-smelling Lemon-y kitchen, we have the tips and tricks you need to start using essential oils. Read on for our ways to go from beginner oil user to supreme oil enthusiast!

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are highly aromatic oils derived from plants. They can be pulled from any botanical matter and are typically extracted from flower petals, citrus peels, grasses, tree barks, and resins. The oils are extracted through a variety of methods, including cold pressing and steam distillation.

How should I use essential oils?

  1. Aromatically
Essential oils are best known for their aromas, which can help create an environment to suit your specific needs. In addition to adding them to cleaning products and beauty staples, you can infuse the air directly with your favorite fragrance by using one of our many diffusers. These handy aroma atomizers can be placed anywhere you crave a fresh scent.
  1. Topically
Many essential oils have skin-enhancing benefits and can be applied directly to the skin or added to your existing beauty products. You can also combine them with a carrier oil or your daily moisturizer for easy application. Read Getting to Know Your Carrier Oils to learn more about diluting essential oils.
  1. Internally
Did you know that many essential oils can be taken internally? Our Vitality™ line is specifically labeled for internal use, making it easy to add a splash of flavor to food and drinks or to take oils in capsules as a dietary supplement. Check out our recipes for homemade blueberry-lavender ice cream and overnight chia breakfast bowls to start getting essential in the kitchen.

Essential oils are for everyone!
Whether you’re a dedicated oil user or still investigating, we have five reasons to (easily) convince you that essential oils are for everyone. 

They harness the benefits of nature’s living energy
