I love trying new essential oils, but over the years I've noticed that I still tend to reach for the same bottles over and over again. These are the oils I use most frequently!
Lavender oil is really helpful for managing anxiety, but I also just love the way it smells so I use it my laundry and cleaning recipes a lot. Lavender oil is also soothing for minor burns and one of the most versatile oils there is.
I use tea tree oil for acne when I need to, as well as for a ton of first aid purposes. It's antibacterial and antifungal so it's really helpful whenever you need to seriously clean something!
I have never used peppermint more than I do now that I live in a 107 year old house!! It repels unwanted pests like spiders and mice. It's also awesome to have on hand for headaches and nausea, though I usually just drink peppermint tea in those cases.
Another old-house favorite, this one is said to help keep rodents away. I dilute it with hemp oil for dusting!
