My First Drop

I first became interested in essential oils by following the blog CampWander.

 **I won**

(hint, hint - there might be a 
giveaway in your future) 
with three great
essential oils
Lemon, Peppermint, 

It came in the mail (I LOVE mail, don't you?) and I thought 
"Okay, now what?" 

  Please consult a certified aromatherapist or medical professional before ingesting essential oils. 

Next came lavender...
I had been reading how all oils are beneficial when 
applied to the feet. 
Okay but HOW?!
Two ways - to start 
(I can't give away all my secrets in the first real blog post!)
You can put two drops in your palm and then rub on your feet. 
Or you can put a drop directly on your foot (if you're flexible). *Remember your dilution rates*
Now go to sleep...or relax and feel less stressed out.

I first used it to rub on my stomach 
to help calm an upset stomach (one of my reoccurring issues).
Sometimes I just open the bottle and
inhale to help calm my tum 
or to wake me up - so refreshing.

Don't forget to use a carrier oil and the appropriate dilution {click here for more info}.

Ready to get started with your own oils? 
What ways do you use these three great oils? I'm sure they'll come up often in future blog posts, so stay tuned.

Happy day, :) Lea B
