3 Ways Essential Oils Maximize Healthy Living In The Home
To start making little changes for a bigger and healthier impact over time, here are 3 ways you can benefit from using essential oils in your home.
1. Freshen The Air
If you’re like most women, you want to have a nice-smelling home. Maybe you’re like me and equate a nice smelling home with a clean home – that’s because I’m a control freak. LOL
Do you love stocking up on wax melts, scented candles, air fresheners, and aerosol sprays? But you can’t enjoy them because your eyes water, your children are coughing, your pets are allergic or your nose starts to run? There is a safer alternative to many of the mainstream air fresheners on the market today.
Why Should You Be Concerned About Air Fresheners?
According to Toxipedia:
“The basic ingredients in air fresheners are formaldehyde, petroleum distillates, 1,4 dichlorobenzene and aerosol propellants. Recently many of these chemicals have been investigated for their safety. Some common chemicals found in air fresheners have been found to be toxic to humans and may increase the incidence of many different health problems. Natural and healthy air fresheners are now being used as alternatives to conventional air fresheners in order to minimize health hazards and environmental pollution.”
Instead of using air fresheners that put all of those chemicals into your clean air and polluting it, try a few drops of essential oils in a diffuser to freshen up your room.

2. Essential Oils In Your Home’s Common Areas
In the bathroom, add 3-6 drops of essential oil to the cardboard tube inside your toilet paper roll to help control bathroom odors
In the laundry room, place 3-5 drops of Lavender or Peppermint oil on wool-fiber dryer balls before placing them in dryer on high heat. The essential oils are dispersed through your wet clothes as they dry and add fragrance to your clothes as an alternative to traditional scented dryer sheets.
In the Kitchen, deodorize your fridge after cleaning by wiping the inside with a solution of water and several drops of Grapefruit, Lime, Bergamot or Lemongrass essential oils.
Make a simple linen spray with 5-8 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and 2 fl. oz. of water in a mini spray bottle. Spray your sheets a few minutes before you go to bed to help relax before you go to sleep.
In the Living Room, make your own potpourri with dried flowers or herbs and several drops of essential oils.

According to the website 21drops:
“These [essential] oils are made up of tiny, fragrant and highly-concentrated molecules that are distilled from the leaves, fruits, woods, seeds, flowers and other parts of various plants. Not only are these natural compounds incredibly fragrant, but they actually have therapeutic properties that promote physical and mental well-being.
Essential oil therapy is the actual use of essential oils to help heal our minds and bodies. In the US, we have been behind the curve in understanding the value of natural alternatives. As a matter of fact, essential oil therapy has been practiced around the world for thousands of years and is currently used as a medical treatment throughout Europe, Africa and Asia.”
I had no idea Essential Oils were that powerful. But now that I’ve begun to use them with my own family, I am seeing and believing in their benefits!
My favorite use for lavender oil is headache relief.
You can rub 1-2 drops of lavender oil into your temples to ease a tension headache.
And for full body relaxation you can rub 1-2 drops on the wrists or the feet as well.
You can also breath it in for relief. Simply rub 2-3 drops of lavender oil in your palms and take a deep breath. The scent enters the amygdala, the center for emotions, and provides a feeling of instant relaxation.
