The Top 8 Everyday Essential Oils

QUICK TIP: If you haven’t quite started using essential oils in your everyday life, this post is absolutely for you. Grab a pen, bookmark this page, whatever. Essential oils have changed the way I take care of my body — they aren’t total miracle workers. You do have to have a balance between your skincare, diet, and essential oils to utilize them to their full capacity. Check out my posts on skincare here, and how to switch over to a clean diet here.

Whether you’re just starting out in your essential oil journey, or you want to use the essential oils in your collection more often, I’m sharing my top 8 essential oils that I use every day.

An important thing to remember is that not all essential oils are created equal. Make sure you’re purchasing 100% pure, undiluted oils. (Personally I like doterra and artnaturals)
