There are many, many essential oils and it can be confusing at first trying to figure them all out and how to use them. But I think there are 3 that you should always have on-hand. They are all-purpose oils that can be used for so many things. What are my big three?
Lemon, Peppermint & Lavender.
With these three important essential oils, you can clean your house, purify the air, and use them for general health and well-being.
3 important essential oils
So why do I consider these 3 important essential oils so special? Because they are just so darn useful for a variety of things.
Lavender has a long list of uses - 'if in doubt use lavender'. We run a few drops in our diffuser every night to promote a relaxing atmosphere. TJ likes me to sweep a drop across her pillow at night. And I mix some with coconut oil to rub on my hands, which get very dry in the winter.
Lemon is a great all-purpose essential oil - it can purify the air and it's a useful cleaning agent.
Peppermint is my daughter's favorite oil. She loves the fresh, invigorating scent. She also likes a drop on her favorite stuffed animal so she can sniff it at night.
What essential oils would you include on your list?
