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!

// my essential oil collection – I’ve starred my favorites (*)

● Eucalyptus*
● Tea Tree
● Lemon*
● Sweet Orange
● Lemongrass
● Peppermint
● Rosemary*
● Grapefruit*

NOTE: Certain essential oils are not safe if you have dogs, cats, other pets or small children. Always do your research on the specific essential oil you are looking to use! Also, always buy high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils. You don’t want to cheap out on them!

    I totally recommend doTERRA essential oils. They aren’t like those cheap ones. They are a little pricey, but it’s quality.

  2. Her Last Voyage on January 23, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Please be careful when using essential oils around pets! Some of the oils can be toxic for them.

  3. Brad A on January 23, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    You’re so peaceful

    WANT TO LEARN MORE? It is very important to be trained properly before you begin using the oils or providing advice / consultations to others. Additionally a survey shows that the public almost unanimously wants to receive essential oils advice from a certified practitioner.
    Because thorough, in-depth training is hard to find, especially among MLM companies, I created the Certified Essential Oil Practitioner course. We have trained and certified hundreds of Essential Oil Practitioners. You owe it to yourself to learn more at https://essentialoilacademy.com and definitely get some good training so you know how to use oils safely before you begin using, selling or consulting.
    PS We teach you how to charge for your consultations as well as how to fill your classes, should you decide to teach. This class is preferred by many doTerra wellness advocates and Young Living distributors.
    Essential Oil Academy is a brand free school. This means you use the brand you think is best. We don’t tell you which one to use. 🙂
    Have an awesome day!!

    This is dumb

  6. William Hansen on January 23, 2021 at 7:48 pm

    Great tips! And good to see you’re not using products from young living!

  7. Mina Hellfire on January 23, 2021 at 7:49 pm

    great ways to use essential oils – i will try some of these! another to use it: when i’m getting a cold and i can’t breathe through my nose during the night, i put a few drops on my pillow or my sleep shirt. after one or two nights i can breathe better during the night and of course sleep better then.

    Hello Aileen! I just wanted to order some oils on Amazon and there I found a cut-together of your essential oil video. They are selling it as if you used Anjou oils. So I came here to YouTube to watch the full video because I recognized you in their advertisement. Now I saw that you use different oils and I’m asking myself if they possibly stole your video? You find it here https://smile.amazon.de/%C3%84therische-Geschenk-Set-Pfefferminze-Luftbefeuchter-Aromatherapie/dp/B07H33NJ8R/ref=sr_1_5?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&crid=2JXLJ9G23OVRK&dchild=1&keywords=anjou+%C3%B6le+set&qid=1585520741&sprefix=anjou+%C3%B6l%2Caps%2C186&sr=8-5 Greetings from Austria, Love, Marty

  9. dawn keatley on January 23, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    Please don’t promote the use of wool if you just sit-down and watch the video of how will is obtained it is horrific

  10. Cassi Lamb on January 23, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    I NEED your shirt. Where did you get it?!

  11. Prachi Rai on January 23, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    What is actually essential oil?

  12. Røxy_ Fãzbear543 on January 23, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    Thanks. I did learn or got reminded about certain things from this video.

  13. The Ultimate Eye Opener on January 23, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    Wow this is an amazing value add to the Essential Oil Lovers especially for beginners! Mind if we add your video link to our blog named 20 incredibly important oil hacks for beginners? Here’s the link

  14. Tube82ful on January 23, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    tq for great contents always!

  15. Victoria Tran on January 23, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    If you want to apply essential oil directly to the skin. You have to mix it will with a carrier oil( ex: almond oil or coconut oil) If you don’t dilute it, it’s can be toxic for the skin. The essential oils video was a good idea. Apparently tea tree oil treats acne scarring. I Just started being creative with my ideas by regularly setting a routine by writing a post.It really helps me feel relaxed.

  16. fun4 funstyle on January 23, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    I only use tea tree oil if I have any pimples. Amazon has 50% off deal for essential oils with this link https://amzn.to/2QlTi73

  17. خلود الغامدي on January 23, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    Hello, can you help please: I have a small empty pack of 30 ml. I want to make a mixture of hair oils inside. The question is (What is the highest percentage of essential oils that I can put in this box and use on my hair? Can I put 5 grams of essential oils and then dilute them with a 20-gram carrier oil? Is 5 grams of essential oils an acceptable quantity? Or is it a large and dangerous amount? ???) please reply . thank you

  18. Brandon Maldonado on January 23, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    here are some all natrual high quality essential oil that come 8 for just $13

    I am from Washington. I am so happy today because I am free from Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). I have been having this Virus since the past two years now, and I have passed through many different processes in getting cured from the Virus, but nothing was working out. A friend of mine introduced me to Herbal Health Doctor called Dr Alaho Olu, who sent me hpv virus herbal remedy and my life get transformed and everything is fine and okay with me. Till now I have been going to check up and it is now going to four months and I am still negative…Thanks to Dr Alaho Olu , I will never stop telling the world about your good work

  20. Marik on January 23, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Please stop… Essential oils don’t work.

  21. Kayte 0207 on January 23, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    A WORD OF CAUTION NOT MENTIONED IN THIS VIDEO!!!! Be very careful about using essential oils around your pets, or anywhere your pet can gain easy access to them. The vacuuming with essential oils is a horrible idea (depending on what oil you are using), because our pets are walking close to the floor all of the time. Many essential oils can be toxic to pets and can cause them serious harm. For those of us who are pet lovers, please look up which essential oils are toxic to pets before using them.

  22. Lavendaire on January 23, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    Italian subtitles are now available!

  23. Zenful Official on January 23, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    love this video, very well thought out. Andddd you’re so right. There is SO much more you can do with essential oils

  24. Tara Earley on January 23, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Really helpful vid! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  25. Crystal Constable on January 23, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    U r so cute.

  26. Sidney Boo on January 23, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    I love the rice hack. Will use next time I have guest and not use the toxic reed diffusers.

  27. Frank Gutowski on January 23, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Therapeutic grade has no scientific meaning or significance. It’s marketing hype.

  28. Eden Milner on January 23, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Is this okay? This brand on Amazon called Anjou Essential Oils is using this video exactly to advertise how you can use their products… or was it an agreement. This is so weird, I just watched this video then looked on Amazon for essential oils, and there the video was again. I hope this is just a glitch or Lavendaire already knows about this. Its quite easy to find and the essential oils or an ‘Amazon’s Choice’ product.

  29. SON of Apollo on January 23, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Excellent video!!

  30. Wing N. on January 23, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    if essential oils degrade plastic, isn’t the straw on the spray bottle plastic as well?

  31. Sharmin Uddin on January 23, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Could you make a video about how to make essential oil

  32. Henna Soda on January 23, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    Does metal work to the same way as glass

  33. Lavendaire on January 23, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    French and Spanish subtitles are now available!

  34. Khim Caballes on January 23, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Because of you, i bought my first set of essential oils and diffuser

    Are these defusers safe around reptiles ?

  40. living unjaded on January 23, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Love using essential oils in dryer balls! I’ll have to try the drawer idea! Seems like such an easy pick-me-up 🙂

  41. Xiaojun Tete on January 23, 2021 at 8:32 pm
