6 Versatile Essential Oils for Beginners

6 Versatile Essential Oils for Beginners

For someone that is just starting out with aromatherapy, the staggering variety of different essential oils that are available for purchase online can be absolutely mind-boggling. Unfortunately, when I was first starting out, I made the costly mistake of thinking I needed to order a whole bunch of different oils to incorporate aromatherapy into my daily life. I had no idea how versatile each of these oils are! I wrote this blog post in hopes that I can save other aromatherapy beginners from making the same mistake I did (and hopefully save them a few dollars in the process)! If I had to do it over again, these would be the oils I would start my collection with.

    1. Lavender (Lavandula Angustafolia) – I love Lavender because it is a very calming, soothing aroma, and it is one of the most versatile essential oils available. Lavender can be used for acne, depression, eczema, insomnia and even bug bites! This oil is safe to use around children – my kids love the aroma of Lavender essential oil.

  4. Sweet Orange (Citrus Sinensis) – Sweet Orange oil is a familiar, soothing orange scent that is a little more concentrated than the aroma of an orange peel by itself.
