Not Sure Where to Start?

Posted by on

Are you an essential oil novice?  It can be daunting when you first start to think about using essential oils.  There are so many choices and so much information out there that a girl might be tempted to just throw in the towel and give up before she begins.  Well, I'm here to say don't do that!  Start simple and show yourself some grace (we can always use some of that anyway right?).  The best way to dive into a new thing is often little by little.  Thankfully oils are easy when you think of it that way.  

If you're loving the idea of diffuser earrings but not sure what to drop onto the back of them maybe just start out with lavender.  It's a mellow scent that most of us are used to by now and the benefits abound.  Lavender is known for its calming effect and can reduce stress and anxiety when diffused...which is what you're doing when you put a little drop on the back of your earrings.  It's also a great oil to purchase out of the gate because it's great for calming not only your nerves, but rashes and skin irritants as well as allergies.  Put a drop on your pillow at night to aid with sleep or even diffuse in your bath to make it an extra soothing experience.  Really, you just can't go wrong with lavender! 

*Just a quick note about quality.  While it might be tempting to purchase essential oils at your local grocery store or even health food store, it's important to find out where they're coming from.  Not all oils are equal and while it seems great to save a few bucks by buying at the grocery store, you might be buying more chemicals and additives than oils.  My advice?  Turn to a reputable company that sells high quality, therapeutic grade oils.  My personal favorite is DoTerra.  Feel free to hit the Contact Us page and inquire about how you can order through Triumph Outpost!
