3 Common Essential Oils and How to Use Them

Common Uses for Lavender Essential Oil


  • My most favorite bath of all is simply hot water plus 20 drops lavender essential oil.  Relaxing, soothing, calming.  Fantastic way to end the day.
  • Place a drop or two on your pillow to aid in going to sleep and sleeping peacefully.
  • Wear a drop or two on your wrists for calming effect and wonderful scent throughout the day.
  • One drop on your collar can help soothe a fussy baby.
  • Use in a diffuser for air freshener.
  • Add several drops to a clean washcloth and toss in the dryer with Mom’s and Baby’s wet clothes for a fresh scent.
  • Add several drops to homemade foaming hand soap.
  • Add to homemade kitchen cleaner.

  • Amazing how powerful this essential oil is when it comes to nausea!  Simply hold the bottle under nose and breathe normally.  (Don’t sniff too vigorously!  This stuff is strong!)
  • Rub a drop of peppermint oil on each temple and massage for headache relief.
  • Place about 15 drops into vacuum cleaner cannister and fill the room with a fresh scent while vacuuming!  Many essential oils are also antibacterial/antifungal, so you’re killing germs, too!
  • Peppermint is my favorite for adding to foaming kitchen hand soap.
