My 7 Must Have Essential Oils

7 Must have Essential Oils

I use essential oils regularly as apart of my wellness and self-care routines. I wanted to share with you my must have list of essential oils. This post does contain referral links.

1. Lavender Essential 0il

Lavender is my number one go to oil, as it is for a lot of people. I am anxiety prone and lavender as such a soothing and comforting scent. I always include Lavender in my melt and pour soaps, face toner, and it also makes a really great room spray!

2. Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon is definitely a staple oil for me as well! I often add lemon into my diffuser blends. I also add Lemon essential oil into my washer with my laundry tablet when I wash my clothes.

3. Orange Essential Oil

Orange essential oil is great for many things! I also will add this into my laundry sometimes with lemon. I also include orange essential oil in my roller bottle recipes for energy. Orange is very uplifting and energizing oil.

4. Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit essential oil is great! I am using it now as an alternative to orange essential oil in my laundry. I also always include it in my citrus blends. This is a very refreshing scent.

5. Marjoram Essential Oil

This was one of the first essential oils that I started using regularly in my wellness routines. Marjoram essential oil has properties in it that help me with pain. I make a spray with marjoram oil and fractionated coconut oil and spray it directly on areas that I’m having a lot of pain. I typically will do this before bed and it helps me a lot.

6. Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot is another great essential oil for stress and anxiety. I love to add this oil to my felt ball diffusers in my car when I’m driving and to my roller bottle recipes for anxiety.

7. Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense is a great oil with many medicinal properties. I have added it to many different recipes, but I like it most in roller bottle recipes. If I am going through a season with a lot of neurological issues from my chronic illness I will make a daily roller bottle with frankincense to help bring some relief.

Benefits of Creativity


The best thing about creativity is that it is unique for all of us. There are so many different mediums and ways to be creative. I believe we all have creative power, sometimes it comes out in art, conversations, mechanical work, crafts, music, and in anything we pour our passion into. I felt very insecure about my creativity when I was growing up and struggled to find my creative voice when I was a young adult. What I learned during those seasons was that it’s okay if your creativity looks different than other peoples, simply creating is empowering, and in the process of creativity we learn a lot about ourselves. There are a lot of benefits to being creative for our overall well-being.

Benefits of Creativity

  • Being creative, in whatever form, is a great way to share your story. It’s an opportunity to develop your voice and share that with your community. Telling our story can be healing, empowering, and affirming.
  • Getting creative often is a mental challenge. We learn while we are being creative about different mediums, how things work together, and skills to make a project work. This mental stimulation is great for our brain and challenges us to be resourceful.
  • Creativity can be a great source of peace and comfort. Life can be really hard and taking time to be creative is a great space for our mind to rest. To just be able to focus on a project that we enjoy and get creative can be so comforting and give us a moment of calm in the midst of the craziness of life.
  • Creativity can create community with others. There is something so special about connecting with other people about creativity. It is so cool to see how everyone creates differently and finding common ground in creativity can help us not feel so alone in this world.
  • Creativity can be a source of emotional strength. There have been times in my life when I have been working through heartbreak, disappointment, or sadness and being creative helped me brave those hard moments. Being creative does this by being a great form of expression, giving us a since of purpose, and allowing us to work out difficult feelings in a productive way.
