Dill and Cumin are tucked in our spice cabinet right now. We just used Dill for canning some cucumbers for pickles. We will use the Cumin in some dishes soon. We use Cumin spice quite a bit for cooking, so can't wait to try this oil instead. We keep Thyme, Marjoram, Oregano, and Basil in our bathroom drawer (with all the other oils) as we use them for more than cooking. Ginger is also being used in the diffuser right now.
I have Slim and Sassy on the kitchen counter to drop in my water during the day to give me a pep and a boost in energy. I do not use it to aid my body in metabolizing fats, but many people can and do use it for that.
I found Lemon tucked in a little wooden dish by the sink. I was using it earlier this week to take sticky residue off some jars. I do drop this in my water once-in-a-while as well.
Bergamot, Lime, and Ginger are the choices of oils for my diffuser right now. Try them together.. you will LOVE it!
My husband keeps Vetiver by his bedside as his go-to oil to aid in helping him get a restful sleep. As you can see, the bottle is almost empty. My choice of nighttime sleepy oils is Lavender and Cedarwood.
There is Lavender and Myrrh on the bathroom counter at this time, for a reminder to my husband to put on his neck and face where he has some skin cancer spots. He is supporting his immune system to clear up these spots while waiting weeks for an appointment with his dermatologist for surgery. Not shown, but used daily as well, is Frankincense, which he carries in his pocket. He also has a Lavender at work that soothes any itchiness in those two spots.
I keep DDR Prime, Geranium, and the Detox Blend on my side of the bathroom counter that I take internally daily. I also have in the blue bottle with the rubber top a face blend that I made, along with some Fractionated Coconut Oil to mix with any oils I want, and some homemade sunscreen.
I found Melaluca (tea tree) in the shower. I used it during a bout of itchy scalp due to a big food allergy reaction. I got hive bumps on my scalp!
How do you use the essential oils and where do you have them tucked away in your house?
