If you’re ready to dip your toe into essential oils, then let’s talk about a few of the most powerful and versatile oils you want to start off your collection. Here are my top 5, along with some of the ways I use them daily.
- Lemon: If you want to start ditching toxic cleaning products, then you will definitely want to have Lemon in your oils starter collection. It can be used to eliminate odours and freshen surfaces. It’s traditionally been used in aromatherapy to enhance mental alertness, to relieve nausea and to stimulate blood flow to skin.
Tip: Put 2-3 drops on a piece of fabric and place it at the bottom of the nappy bucket to help fight odours.

- DiGize:This oil is our go-to oil for tummy upset, nausea and cramp relief. Add 1 drop DiGize in a carrier oil of your choice (coconut, olive, almond, etc) and rub on an upset belly with a heat pack over the top. Alternatively, inhaling directly from the bottle can aid in fast relief from nausea. Another must-have for your family’s first aid kit.
Tip: Keep this one in the car.

- Peppermint: This invigorating aroma is an incredible support against head tension. I rub a few drops across my neck & near my temples to find relief. Peppermint is also good for digestive support.
Tip: Dilute a few drops of Peppermint with carrier oil for a refreshing post workout massage.

- Frankincense: This warm, earthy aroma has grounding properties that make this oil perfect for calming and quiet time. It’s traditionally been used in aromatherapy to relieve mild upper respiratory tract congestion, to reduce bronchial mucous congestion and to enhance nerve function.
Tip: Add a few drops of Frankincense in your moisturiser to promote healthier-looking skin.

- Lavender: The classic floral, fresh & calm aroma ranks as one of the most popular oils and is perfect for beginners. It is a soothing addition to any bedtime routine, the perfect pairing to your skin routine and is the one we reach for to soothe bug bites. It’s traditionally been used in aromatherapy to relieve headache symptoms, to relieve colic wind pain and to relieve mild neuralgia (nerve pain).
Tip: Add four drops of Lavender in one cup of Epsom salt to a warm bath and let the stress melt away.
