There seems to be a massive hype around essential oils all over the world. If you search the phrase "Essential Oil DIY," you can discover plenty of recipes that you might love. This is the reason why we thought of doing an article on how to use essential oils and share some of our most favorite recipes with you.
How to Use Essential Oils: The Most Creative Ways
But, before we start, what exactly are essential oils? Most people think they're just fragrant oils, which is partly true. However, unlike fragrance oils, essential oils are formulated from different parts of plants, whereas fragrance oils are usually not natural and sometimes even synthetic. So, with proper dilution, essential oils are much easier on the skin than fragrance oils.
If you're wondering how to use essential oils to scent a room? Why not just make a simple DIY deodorizing spray right at home with one of our essential oils!
Using essential oils to deodorize your house is so simple! All you need are three ingredients; distilled water, essential oils of your choice, and rubbing alcohol (or a spirit of any kind). Mix one cup of water to two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol with 5-10 drops of essential oil to your liking.
If you like multiple scents and are wondering is it OK to mix essential oils? Of course! Essential oils are also really great as a natural deodorant. That means, you can use essential oils for laundry by adding a drop or two into the washing machine. For your body, simply dabbing a few drops on your wrists and neck can go a long way with body odor. We recommend using an essential oil like WOW Eucalyptus Essential Oil for this.
2. Using a Necklace Diffuser
This precious little diffuser goes well with almost any outfit you have. On top of having a cute diffuser nestled on your neck, everyone will catch how good you smell wherever you go!
We recommend the WOW Sweet Orange Essential Oil for this. It has a sweet, citrusy aroma that evokes a sense of joy & warmth. All it takes is a few drops onto one of the diffuser pads in the necklace!
You’ll walk around with a persistently good mood that lasts all day!
Imagine this scenario. You've spent an excruciating week at work, and you come home to your partner on a Friday night. He/she has set up an at-home massage for you, with scented candles in your bedroom. A massage that makes you feel light and breezy and helps you let go of all your worries and stress, even though it might only be for a few moments. Who wouldn't want that?
Not everyone has the luxury to visit a spa every day, so why not bring it to your bedroom? Simply get one of our essential oils (we recommend the WOW Tea Tree Essential Oil!) and massage it onto your neck or soles of your feet (remember to read instructions and use carrier oils while applying directly on the skin) before going to bed.
There's nothing like a good massage at the end of a stressful day. You can pair up the massage with a nice bubbly bath with a bath bomb, some peppermint essential oil, maybe a bath steamer with your partner on Friday night while drinking wine.
