Top 6 Essential Oils (By Katy Jo Holton)

Since the introduction of our essential oil blends, we have been getting a lot of questions about essential oils in general. With their popularity growing as an alternative to synthetic perfumes that have the potential to be dangerous (see http://wholenewmom.com/health-concerns/dangers-of-fragrances/?utm_content=bufferde867&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer), as well as an alternative medicine, there is a lot of mixed information out there.

First off, let us go ahead and mention we are not doctors, but we do have brains, as well as personal experience with essential oils. Never the less, please proceed with caution, and make sure you do your own research that fits your needs and life style, especially if you are pregnant. Secondly, we need to emphasize that although many people ingest essential oils in water, this should only be done with oils that specifically say you can.

With that in mind, let’s talk about some of our favorite oils and their uses! We’ve put together a list of our top 6 essential oils to keep around the house. They have been chosen because they are widely available, reasonably priced (some oils get get pretty pricey!) and because of their versatility and effectiveness.

Lavender, of course! Lavender seems to have stood the test of time as one of the most popular oils, and for good reason. Here are just a few of the well known benefits of Lavender essential oil

In addition, we noticed many folks asking us what oils we use. We tend to use different oils from different companies to fit our needs best. We always use therapeutic grade and go for organic oils whenever possible. We are not trying to bash any companies, but tend to steer clear of any company that uses pyramid sales. Since, however, they have become so popular, here is an interesting and thorough article addressing the many essential oil companies out there http://wholenewmom.com/what-to-buy/best-essential-oils-company-young-living-review-doterra-review/. The article has several parts if you really want to get in there.
