7 Easy Essential Oil Uses & Hacks

New to essential oils? Here are 7 easy ways to use essential oils in your home! I've been obsessed with essential oils and having fun learning how to use them in as many ways as I can. Whether you're an essential oil beginner or essential oil expert, you'll probably get some new ideas from this video.

My essential oil collection

On my essential oil collection: I started with a beginner's kit of 6 essential oils. Then I started researching MUJI essential oil blends and bought the ingredients in those blends from Amazon (thrifty ol' me… lol). Start with the most common/versatile oils and then explore new ones you think you'd like! I've starred my favorites below (*)

  • Lavender*
  • Eucalyptus*
  • Tea Tree
  • Lemon*
  • Sweet Orange
  • Lemongrass
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary*
  • Grapefruit*
  • Rosewood*
  • Frankincense*
  • Geranium
  • Cypress

Below are my favorite blends for diffusing essential oils. I don't always stick to these & usually blend so many oils that the scent is always different. It's not a science, it's an art 😜

  • Spa vibes | Lavender + Eucalyptus
  • Spring spa vibes | Lavender + Eucalyptus + Geranium
  • Squeaky clean | Lemon + Rosemary
  • Fresh bathroom | Orange + Lemongrass
  • High vibes | Frankincense + Rosewood
  • Sweet forest | Eucalyptus + Cypress + Geranium
  • Citrus Dream | Grapefruit + Lemon + Orange (+ Lavender / Peppermint)
