First I would like to thank the talented Miss Holly Luiken, who took these lovely pictures with my littles and I. She is ridiculously talented and you can follow her IG @hollyluik.
There are so many oils that I use all the time but I am often asked, "What's your favorite? What oils do you use the most? What are your mama go-to oils".... there are a lot of oils I use on a regular basis... But if I had to narrow it to just 5 of my most used... These would be it.. They are supportive to both me and my littles. So here goes.
Balalnce: This is my most used mood blend that supports me and my babies both physiologically and emotionally. The warm and woody aroma of the Grounding Balance blend creates a sense of calm and well- being. This is a blend of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil make this warm woody fragrance a favorite. The Spruce wood has emotional profiles that promotes tranquility and relaxation. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can ease anxious feelings, while Frankincense provides a grounding, balancing effect on emotions.
Frankincense: This is one of my favorites!!! Known as the "King of the Oils", its one of the most prized and precious essential oils, Frankincense has extraordinary health benefits. Used for centuries for its healing benefits, the Wiseman brought baby Jesus Frankincense and Myrrh. The ancient Egyptians used Frankincense resin for everything from perfume to salves for soothing skin. This centuries-old knowledge contributes to the modern uses of Frankincense today. It's amazing calming properties to the central nervous system, healing benefits to the skin, and support of cellular health to promote your overall wellness are just some of a few reasons as to why its such an amazing oil. I love to put a drop under my tongue in the am for immune boosting, and add a drop to my moisturizer.
Lavender: This is known as the "swiss army knife" of oils for most mamas.
Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes. Applied topically, Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.
Onguard: This guy is probably one of the most popular blends of all. I often hear people mention this oil if they have limited knowledge of oils. doTERRA On Guard protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested. This powerhouse blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Cinnamon Leaf make it super effective and supportive. doTERRA On Guard can be taken internally on a daily basis to maintain healthy immune function and support healthy cardiovascular function. It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaner. When diffused, doTERRA On Guard helps purify the air, and can be very energizing and uplifting.

Peppermint: this is the oil that grabbed my attention and I fell in love with for so many reasons and I enjoy using all the time. . Its so supportive to mood, alleviates tension headaches... aides in stomach digestion, and is perfect before a hard workout. It is frequently used in toothpaste and chewing gum for oral hygiene. Peppermint also helps alleviate occasional stomach upset and promotes healthy respiratory function when taken internally. I use Peppermint every single day multiple times for a variety of things..
