Before starting this blog, I had never heard of essential oils. (Have you?) And what I’ve learned is that they are completely natural and have more uses than I can even count. I love the way they smell, and I love knowing I can try them first for any ailments we may be experiencing before having to resort to pharmaceuticals. They serve many household purposes as well and can be used in homemade cleaning products (see below for more examples!).
So that’s why I am thrilled to be offering this giveaway today! Our sponsor Plant Therapy is generously giving away their Top 32 Essential Oil Set and Classic Diffuser to some lucky winners. Their essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted, and of the highest quality. Each batch is tested by a third party using GC/MS testing, plus they are so proud of what they do that they will soon be adding these test results to their website. Plant Therapy is a company that is committed to making sure their customers are educated on the best and safest ways to use essential oils.
And whether you are one of those lucky winners, or this post just opens your eyes to the idea of using essential oils, I want to share some of the top uses for essential oils with you.
Top 7 Ways To Use Essential Oils
- Relieve Headaches
As soon as you feel it coming on, rub Peppermint essential oil or Plant Therapy’s Headache Relief Synergy on your temples, back of the neck, or wherever the headache is coming on.

Mix 2 cups Himalayan coarse salt, 1 cup baking soda, and 10-15 drops of one of the following essential oils: Lavender, Soft Skin, Relax, Tranquil, Energy, Invigor-Aid, Pain-Aid, Muscle-Aid, or your favorite essential oil. (This would be a great gift!)
