The 6 MOST Powerful Essential Oils for Your Health and Home

Five years ago I was overweight, popping pills for any and every kind of affliction, eating 80% processed foods, and thinking that this was how it was supposed to be. It wasn't until the birth of my first child that I started to question all the things we were putting in our bodies. This is when my real food, natural living, and holistic healthcare started...and I haven't looked back.

Essential oils came into the picture shortly after I made the transformation to natural living. Five years later, I am a essential oil freak! I love oils for anything and everything. It still amazes me where I have come from. I used to take a prescribed medication for my stomach issues, not fully realizing the ramifications and side effects from using this drug. Now, I use peppermint oil or DigestZen to control my symptoms. I've traded in over-the counter, topical creams for Lavender essential oil to support healthy skin. I buy ZERO toxic cleaners for my house now...instead I use essential oils to make homemade cleaners.

Where do I start? What oils are best to start with?

You may be asking this very question. Let me help you. These 6 essential oils are my favorite and the most useful in your home. These six oils can help almost any ailment! If you wanted to know where to start...THIS IS IT!

1. Lavender - All Things Calming


If you could only afford ONE essential oil to stock your medicine cabinet with, I would recommend Lavender. You can use it hundreds of ways:
