Essential Oils :: My favorite single oils

Monday, February 12, 2018

A few years ago I started dabbling in essential oils. A friend had purchased some, and I was already curious, so I decided to do some research on brands and what oils would be best for our family. I'll try and keep this short and sweet.

There are quite a few different EO brands, my favorite is Eden's Garden. I did look through a lot of articles and comparisons, and I still felt like this was the best choice for us, but do some research for yourself.

(Disclaimer: I am not a health care professional and am not responsible if my views or likes or dislikes of a product differ from your own. Please do your own research and contact your healthcare professional before using any oils. This post contains affiliate links.)

Here is why I chose Eden's Garden:

  1. They are 100% pure therapeutic grade oil.
  2. They are not a MLM company, so I don't have to buy into anything or get my product from someone else.
  3. Because they are not an MLM company, and I am not paying someone's commission, they are very affordable.
  4. They have blends just for kids. With little ones you have to be very careful with EO's or you could negatively effect their health. See a little more here, or read this.
  5. They have a huge selection of oils, with descriptions and reviews.
  6. They have fast and free shipping.

Here are my favorite single oils: (this is how we've used them, there are SO many uses for each oil!)

  1. Lavender- this is an all around great oil. We use it for any skin issues, and often diffuse it for a calm house. This oil is safe for little ones as well.
  2. Clove- A great oil for muscle aches and skin ailments. When my family was struck with Moluscum a few years ago, my husband used clove every day to help dry up the spots.
  3. Tea Tree- A great anti-septic oil we keep around for first-aid, bug bites, cleaning supplies, and diffusing. (Not for topical use under 2)
  4. Manuka- Another great oil for skin ailments, and many other things. My husband and daughters seem to be plagued with skin issues, so I have researched and tried a lot of these oils for that reason.
  5. Birch- We use this with a carrier oil for sore muscles, it smells so good as well!
  6. Peppermint- When my husband and I can't seem to get rid of headaches, we try this oil. It will also curb your appetite and uplift your mood. (Avoid use on children under 6)
If you'd like to learn more, here are a few resources. Eden's Garden also has a lot of articles and information on their site, as I'm sure most legit EO companies do. I also have two of these diffusers, one in the kitchen, and another I move throughout the house and it's been great!
