My Favorite Essential Oils

And Best Ways to Use Them

Grounding Blend

The Grounding Blend that helps me stay cool, calm and collected throughout my busy days. I use this oil multiple times throughout the day. I combine this with an immunity blend and put 1-2 drops on the soles of my feet each morning. I reach for the Ground Blend anytime I feel stressed, anxious or overwhelmed. After taking a few deep breaths with some on my hands and then rubbing the oil on my chest, I notice my body relaxing, my heart rate slowing down and my emotions calming. I also use this blend during therapy sessions to help calm any children that are a little more high energy. Many of the kids and parents I work with enjoy this blend and use it themselves in their daily lives. After hearing one mother tell me this, my heart melted because of the impact essential oils have had on her son “My son always reminds me if I forget to give him his Balance oil each morning. He loves it and it helps calm his ADHD and improves his mood. I also notice he is more confident and getting bullied less.” –Wendy from Chicago

Immunity Blend

The Immunity Blend that I use daily. This blend is a must for me because working with children on a daily basis I am prone to germs and getting sick. I don’t want to be sick and I also don’t want to spread germs to my patients. I put 1-2 drops on the soles of my feet every morning and I have my homemade hand sanitizer that I use between patients. I also use this blend in homemade cleaners for my kitchen and bathroom. It works so well and leaves my apartment smelling so fresh. Anytime you feel a little under the weather, this is a great essential oil blend to diffuse in the air.

Lemon

Another excellent oil to use to start my day. I try to have Lemon oil in hot water for a daily detox and it’s a great way to start the day on those cold Chicago winters. Lemon is a powerful antioxidant that helps ward off free radicals. Lemon is another oil that is fabulous to add to your water for a healthy refreshing way to spice up your water. Lemon is another great oil to diffuse to cleanse the air and uplift your mood.

Vetiver

One of the oils that made me believe in the benefits of essential oils. Vetiver has helped me tremendously with my insomnia and poor sleep. I will put Vetiver on my feet (especially on the big toe) before bed. I usually combine Vetiver, Serenity and a few drops of Bergamot or Wild Orange into a roller bottle with Fractionated Coconut oils and roll the oils on the soles of my feet before bed. My sleep has never been better and I feel more refreshed in the mornings.

Wild Orange

This uplifting and energizing citrus oil smells amazing and is so refreshing. I will diffuse this or simply take a whiff from the bottle when I need a little pick me up energetically or emotionally. Adding 1-2 drops of Wild Orange to water is an excellent way to improve the taste of water and also get the cleansing and detoxing benefits of this citrus oil. I will add 1-2 drops of Wild Orange to a fruit dip or a smoothie or put a few drops in a glass spray bottle with water and make a homemade cleaner for my kitchen.

Peppermint

Not only does Peppermint essential oil smell amazing, but also the benefits are endless. I will put a drop of peppermint in my coffee, which is cheaper than adding syrup at the coffee shop and leaves my breath fresh (Yay no coffee breath!). I use Peppermint on my temples and base of my skull when I have a headache or on my stomach when I feel nauseous or have cramps. I also love combining one drop of peppermint and one drop of Wild Orange in my hands, taking a few deep breaths and then rubbing the oils on the back of my neck. This is an amazing blend for focus and energy!

Calming Blend

The Calming Blend helps me unwind and relax after a long day. This is a great oil to diffuse before bedtime or diffuse when stress arises. When I am teaching my yoga classes, I use this blend in svasana. I can physically see people relax and then tension melt away from their bodies. This is another great blend for moms and kids for naptime and bedtime.

Grapefruit

Grapefruit is delicious and refreshing. Grapefruit cleanses and purifies, supports healthy metabolism and reduces mental and physical fatigue. I LOVE putting Grapefuit into my water. I also love adding grapefruit as diffuser blends. It’s great to combine Grapefruit, Rosemary and Lime in the diffuser as well as Grapefruit, Bergamot and Wild Orange. Grapefruit is also excellent to rub onto your “trouble areas” to firm the skin.
