Essential oils are an ideal gift at any time of the year. Most people love them but don’t know which oils to choose. Gift sets are such a great idea, for example, Tisserand’s Winter Collection has six essential oils. It contains Orange, Lemon, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Peppermint, and Pine.
ou can diffuse essential oils in a ceramic burner or an electric diffuser. Simply choose your favourite scent. As a general rule of thumb add 6 – 8 drops to an essential oil burner or diffuser. You can blend the oils with a carrier oil like almond oil for interesting massage blends.
They’re very useful around the house too. Add a couple of drops to the water in your steam mop/bucket. Or drop some of your favourite oil on to your hoover filter or sprinkle some in to the toilet bowl. Leave a damp cloth with a couple of drops of your favourite oil on the radiator. You can create your own household air freshener by adding the oils to a spray bottle and use as required. Peppermint for example can be used to ward off spiders.
Rosemary is a great choice for concentration, focus, and memory. If added to your massage blend it’s also a great oil for aching and sore muscles after training.
Orange is fantastic used in a carrier oil for congested skin. It creates a light and lively atmosphere in the home when burned. It blends well with Rosemary and Peppermint for focus and motivation.
Lemon is a brilliant oil for creating an uplifting environment. A great one for clearing household smells.
Peppermint is a fantastic choice to add to a footbath. It has an instant cooling effect that relieves tired and aching feet. Two drops in a basin of water is plenty. Add 6 drops of Peppermint to your diffuser to help bring clarity to a busy mind.
Pine is ideal in a massage blend or in the bath to refresh the mind and rejuvenate the skin. It’s a favourite at Christmas time to bring the scent of the outside in.
Cinnamon is lovely combined with Orange and some Clove oil for a traditional festive scent.
I hope you enjoy your essential oils for 2021.
