Top 5 essential oils from around our home

Let me tell you my favorite ways to use our oils around our home! Read on for our Top 5 essential oils from around our home.

We love using our essential oils! We use them every day and all over our home. Let me show you the top 5 ways we use essential oils and how handy they can be around your home too!

5. All-Purpose Cleaner

At number 5, we have our Young Living Thieves all-purpose cleaner! This stuff really does clean… everything! There’s a spray bottle in the kitchen, and one in the bathroom too!

We use this cleaner for everything – floors, counters, tables, mirrors, windows, bathroom, kitchen – it cleans it all!

4. Vitality Oils In The Kitchen

We really do love ALL of our oils, but these white-label Vitaliy oils have a special place in our hearts and our kitchen! the white labels are for the oils that are safe for internal usage.

some of our favorite ways to use them are:

flavoring water – of course, there’s lemon, but have you tried grapefruit or basil in your water??

Young Living even has Vitaliy drops in yummy flavors!

Adding just a drop of vitality oils to your favorite dishes is an easy way to spice up a meal! Like Basil, oregano, and thyme for those Italian recipes! Thieves tea is a favorite in our house too!

Cinnamon bark vitality or clove is amazing in coffee, and peppermint is too, just a toothpick dipped in and swirled in your coffee will do it! or add a drop to the grounds before brewing! Delish!

3. Diffusing! All The Oils

You have probably seen or heard about diffusing oils. One of the most popular uses for essential oils to be sure! But I had to add it to this list. Since we have a diffuser in nearly every room in our home! Our boys love to use the diffusers overnight and it doubles as a night light in their bedrooms.

These dew Drop diffusers are perfect for small rooms.

In our living room, we have the desert mist diffuser with a pretty “candle-like” glow setting that I love! We use this one during school as well!

My office is perfect for the Lucia Artisan Diffuser! Since there usually isn’t much roughhousing in there! haha

Here are a couple of our current favorite diffuser blends

2. Owie Roller for the Boys!

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of the premade rollers from Young Living! How convenient are they?

The boys grab the Owie one whenever they have a scrape or a cut!

1. Laundry Detergent!

Number 1, We have made it to number 1 on our Top 5 Essential oil uses for around our home,

and number 1 is our favorite way to use Young Living Essential Oils….. our liquid Laundry Detergent.

We have used this homemade laundry detergent for years now! And I don’t need to tell you, that’s a LOT of laundries!!

I make it in big batches so I’m only needing to mix it, every few months! But when it is time to make it again, it’s super easy and quick.

The original blog post recipe can be found at this link below, there’s even an old video of my cutie William helping me mix it up too!

Well, you know I could keep talking about all these products and hundreds more, but for now, I’ll keep this list at 5. If you have any questions, please reach out.

Which of these would be most useful in your home?

Are there any products you use regularly that you would love to find a natural substitute for in your home?

It’s as easy as ditching and switching one item at a time. And slowly but surely you will be making giant changes for your family!
