Complimentary therapies should always be carefully considered.

STEP 2 – THE HOME ESSENTIALS KIT

Although they’ve been used for centuries, the popularity of Essential Oils has exploded worldwide in recent years.

It seems as if everywhere you go, someone is talking about Essential Oils or posting diffuser blend recipes online. Oils are all over the shelves at health food stores and even many of the big-name general merchandise stores.

A simple online search yields millions of results for the term “Essential Oils.” With hundreds of oils and blends out there and thousands of suggestions coming at you from all directions, how do you know where to start?

Getting into oils can seem confusing and overwhelming!

This class will help you avoid the massive overload of often confusing information, by focusing on how you can quickly and easily get started with the essentials in the form of the aptly named HOME ESSENTIALS KIT, which comes with an easy-to-use diffuser and ten of the most popular and versatile Essential Oils and Blends.

I’ll also show you areas of your life where you can implement Essential Oils and give you plenty of ideas, recipes, and tips to get you started.

So if you’ve been wondering just how to get into the wide world of Essential Oils, the HOME ESSENTIALS KIT, along with this class, is the perfect place to begin.

STEP 3 – ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER

The Home Essentials Kit comes with an ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER, which uses water to help create mist that distributes Essential Oils into the air. This type of DIFFUSER is easy to use, clean, and maintain. Simply fill the DIFFUSER with water (to the red line) and then add a few drops of Essential Oil.

The DIFFUSER creates ultrasonic vibrations that cause the Essential Oil drops placed into the water to break into tiny particles. The resulting mist is then released and distributed throughout the air. When you breathe in the air, you also breathe in the particles of Essential Oil carried in the fine mist.

ULTRASONIC DIFFUSERS have several advantages over non-water diffusers, including:

  • Less Essential Oil used.
  • The properties of the Essential Oils are not compromised because heat is not involved.
  • Helps humidify dry air.

The DIFFUSER that comes with the HOME ESSENTIALS KIT is small and portable. It can run one, two, or four hours continuously and covers up to 30 sqm. It has a soft, optional light that functions beautifully as a nightlight.

STEP 4 – LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL

Citrus Oils have many useful properties. They are emotionally uplifting, support the immune system, and are cleansing and purifying to the body, air, and surfaces.

LEMON Essential Oil comes from the rinds, or peel, of the fruit. It has a clean, fresh, citrusy scent and is probably the most popular oil for cleaning and cleansing, but the properties of this versatile Essential Oil go way beyond cleaning.

LEMON naturally cleanses the body and promotes healthy functioning of the GI tract. It also supports healthy respiratory function, positive mood, the immune system, and digestion. Due to its many internal benefits, LEMON is an often-ingested Essential Oil. Many people enjoy putting one or two drops in their water. If you are doing any sort of body system cleanse, LEMON can assist you.

LEMON is your go-to Essential Oil for around-the-house cleaning. It smells great and provides a safer, more natural alternative to commercial cleaners.

Adding LEMON to a glass spray bottle of water makes a simple surface cleaner to wipe down benchtops, desks, phones, doorknobs, and even toys. A couple drops of LEMON on a cotton ball can even tackle permanent marker or paint on many surfaces. It’s also great for getting sticky residue off surfaces, clothes, and furniture.

FUN AIR FRESHENER HACK

One room of your house that’s often in need of extra air freshening is the bathroom. Here’s a fun way to keep this room smelling great: Put three to five drops of your favourite cleansing, fresh-smelling oil(s) on the inside of the cardboard tube of your toilet paper roll. This is especially useful for small bathrooms because you won’t have to clutter counters and windowsills with deodorisers.

PRACTICAL USES: LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL

  • Diffuse to create an uplifting environment and positive mood.
  • Add to a spray bottle of water to clean tables, benchtops, and other surfaces.
  • Add a few drops to olive oil to clean, protect, and shine wood finishes.
  • Use a cloth soaked in LEMON oil to preserve and protect your leather furniture and other leather surfaces or garments.
  • Apply to silver and other metals as a remedy for the early stages of tarnish.
  • Put a few drops on a rag to help remove stubborn, sticky residue from surfaces.
  • Wash hands with LEMON Essential Oil to remove grease or dirt.
  • Take internally to assist with seasonal respiratory discomfort.
  • Add LEMON to enhance the flavour of desserts and main dishes.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

DIFFUSION: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
INTERNAL USE: Dilute one drop in 100ml of liquid.
TOPICAL USE: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with carrier oil to minimise any skin sensitivity.

CAUTIONS: Citrus Oils, including LEMON, are phototoxic. This means that sun exposure after applying to your skin can cause skin redness or irritation. It’s best to avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying topically.

STEP 5 – LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL

If you’ve heard anything about Essential Oils, chances are, you’ve heard of LAVENDER. This oil is calming and soothing to the body, mind, and emotions. The oil comes from the flower part of the plant and has a light, powdery, floral scent.

LAVENDER Essential Oil has many uses, but it’s best known for its benefits for the “Three S’s”: Sleep, Skin, and Stress. Let’s explore what this Essential Oil can do for these “Three S’s.”

  1. SLEEP

LAVENDER is quite well known for its calming and relaxing properties. Because of this, it’s the perfect oil to diffuse at bedtime or put into a warm bath to help you wind down. It helps create a positive sleeping environment, so you can get peaceful, restful sleep.

  1. SKIN

LAVENDER soothes cuts, scrapes, bug bites, and even minor burns. It can also provide soothing relief for your skin if you stay out in the sun too long. It’s been used for centuries in beauty products and can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other blemishes. LAVENDER is a very gentle oil and can be used for just about any type of skin, including babies and children.

  1. STRESS

LAVENDER helps reduce anxious, tense feelings. It also helps soothe and calm the nervous system. It’s a staple in most stress-busting diffuser blends and can be applied topically throughout the day to help you deal with stressful situations.

PRACTICAL USES

  • Diffuse three or four drops to reduce stress and anxious feelings.
  • Add a few drops to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet at bedtime.
  • Keep a bottle of LAVENDER on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations.
  • Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining a few drops with water in a spray bottle.

STEP 6 – PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL

PEPPERMINT Essential Oil comes from the entire PEPPERMINT plant. It has a fresh, minty scent with herbaceous undertones. This oil is cooling to the skin and refreshing to the mind and body.

PEPPERMINT is an incredibly versatile Essential Oil and benefits many of the body’s systems. As we’ll soon discuss, Frankincense is renowned for its versatility, but PEPPERMINT sure comes close! It can be used topically, aromatically, and internally in many different ways.

Applying to the back of the neck can help cool you down and lessen stress and tension. This oil also promotes focus, alertness, and positive mood.

Smelling PEPPERMINT directly from the bottle or adding three to four drops in a diffuser can help support the respiratory system and digestive system. Its revitalising aroma can help you wake up in the mornings or when you’re feeling drowsy during the mid-afternoon slump.

PEPPERMINT also tastes delicious in water and in baking. One drop applied to the roof of your mouth can help soothe head tension or tame your tummy.

PRACTICAL USES

  • Put a drop of PEPPERMINT with Lemon in water for a healthy, refreshing mouth rinse.
  • Take one to two drops in a Veggie Capsule to alleviate occasional stomach upset.
  • Add a drop to your favourite smoothie recipe for a refreshing twist.

TEA TREE promotes a healthy immune system and protects against seasonal and environmental threats. It is cleansing and can be used in cleaning products as an effective surface cleaner.

This oil is probably most well-known for its topical benefits. Like Lavender, it can soothe and cleanse irritated skin. It’s also quite effective for reducing the appearance of blemishes and promoting a healthy complexion. Just add a few drops to your body wash, face wash, or moisturiser.

TEA TREE is especially good at keeping fingernails and toenails clean and healthy-looking and also helps keep your hair and scalp clean. TEA TREE has even been known to protect against lice. You can put a couple drops in your shampoo.

STEP 8 – FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL

FRANKINCENSE Essential Oil comes from the resin of the FRANKINCENSE tree. It has a warm, spicy, clean aroma. This oil is known as the “King of Oils” because of its considerable versatility.

In fact, there’s even a saying in the aromatherapy world: “When in doubt, get the FRANKINCENSE out!”

FRANKINCENSE supports cellular health and function as well as healthy immune system response. When used internally, it supports many of the body’s systems and functions, including lung and respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, liver, urinary tract, and joints.

Emotionally, FRANKINCENSE lifts mood and awareness, calms stress and tension, and promotes feelings of relaxation. Many people find the grounding properties of diffusing FRANKINCENSE beneficial during meditation.

CALM AND GROUNDING DIFFUSER BLEND RECIPE

  • 1 drop Lavender Essential Oil
  • 2 drops Lemon Essential Oil

Topically, the King of Oils does amazing things for the skin. It soothes cuts, bites, and other occasional irritations and is renowned for its use in beauty products, as it rejuvenates the skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.

STEP 9 – OREGANO ESSENTIAL OIL

OREGANO Essential Oil comes from the leaves of the OREGANO plant. Its aroma is sharp and herbaceous, and you will love to cook with it!

While not as versatile as some of the Essential Oils we’ve already discussed, you will certainly be glad you have OREGANO when you’re not feeling up to par, as it’s one of the most effective oils for immune system support and function. It’s full of antioxidants and supports healthy digestion and respiratory support as well.

OREGANO is most well-known as a cooking spice, as it enhances the flavor of many foods, especially Italian sauces and dishes. It’s perfect for pasta and pizza sauces, soups, bread dips, and more. And since it’s so concentrated and powerful, just ONE drop of OREGANO Essential Oil can substitute for one tablespoon of ground OREGANO.

PRACTICAL USES

  • Add one to two drops to a veggie capsule to support healthy respiratory function.
  • Put one drop in place of dried OREGANO in spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or on a roast.

STEP 10 – DIGESTZEN BLEND

The DIGESTZEN BLEND is packed with the tummy taming oils of Peppermint, Fennel, Ginger, Anise, Tarragon, Caraway, and Coriander. It smells spicy and minty with hints of licorice and is ideal for digestive system support.

This blend soothes upset stomachs and helps reduce occasional bloating, gas, and uncomfortable indigestion. You can use it topically, internally, or just smell it right out of the bottle.

Make sure you have the DIGESTZEN BLEND on hand when traveling, trying unfamiliar foods, or overindulging in heavy, comfort food and yummy desserts over the holidays or at a buffet.

When traveling, bring along the DIGESTZEN BLEND (don’t pack it too deep in your suitcase!). It’s very stomach-soothing during bumpy bus rides, rocky air turbulence, or car trip routes down long, windy roads.

The EASY AIR BLEND minimises the effects of seasonal and environmental threats by helping promote and maintain feelings of clear breathing and open airways.

It can also help you get a restful night’s sleep, as open airways often mean less snoring and middle-of-the-night wake ups. Diffuse next to your bed or dilute with carrier oil and apply to your chest or the bottoms of your feet.

Its cooling, soothing effects can often be felt immediately on muscles, joints, and when dealing with body tension.

Athletes and massage therapists love this blend, but it’s not just for sports-lovers; it’s soothing for anybody’s muscles and joints, whether your discomfort is due to running a marathon, lifting heavy boxes, gardening or doing yard work, or playing outside with the kids or grandkids.

The ICE BLUE BLEND is most often used topically, but aromatic use can be beneficial as well. Diffusing or smelling this blend out of the bottle gets the oil components into the body quickly and can enhance the effectiveness of topical use.

STEP 13 – ON GUARD BLEND

The ON GUARD BLEND contains Wild Orange, Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary, all oils that boast immune system supporting benefits. When used internally, it can also help support the body’s natural antioxidant defense as well as the respiratory system.

The ON GUARD BLEND’S warm, spicy, woody aroma is uplifting and energising, so it makes a great air freshener as well: support your mood AND cleanse the air at the same time! Diffuse at work, in the classroom, or at home when the kids are getting ready for school.
