I heart essential oils

Everything you need to know about essential oils!

Nice smelling and relaxation are some of the most familiar uses for essential oils. But many go beyond that and an be really useful to create a chemical free and natural home. They are all natural antiseptics, astringents, disinfectants and much more.

My favorites are:
A few drops of Lavender oil in my palm  for relaxation,  clearing my sinuses and
headache relief
Tea tree oil in water is an anti-bacterial cleanser for surfaces and the body (make sure its a really mild solution for skin).
A few drops of Peppermint oil in the corners of my apartment and cabinets repels insects and bugs
A couple of drops of Bergamot in a scent diffuser, (or in a small ceramic cup placed on a steam heater) freshens up any space.

Here are some great articles on essential oils from Yoganynomous.
