The power of essential oils is real. We've talked about the benefits and uses for them before, but where do you even start when choosing which ones to buy? There are so many out there, so we've made a list of our favorites to purchase on Amazon below. Why Amazon? Because whether you live in a big city or in a rural area, chances are you can order something from the mega-retailer and get it delivered quickly in just a few clicks.
But before you get to the recommendations, it's important to note that essential oils are very potent, so a few drops will suffice; and they should be diluted properly before you apply to your skin.
Eucalyptus can boost your mood and energy levels if you put it in a diffuser. It also can help with muscle inflammation and a sore throat (but check on how to diffuse it properly). This Plant Therapy version is Amazon's Choice.
Lemon essential oil can do a lot of work at home. It can help purify and freshen the air, but also energize you and treat a sore throat. Gya Labs also recommends adding it to your skincare products to help cleanse oily skin.
This essential oil can be added to your diffuser, bath, or shower for a relaxing experience. Chamomile can help with sleep problems and treating muscle inflammation. This particular brand is Amazon's Choice.
Orange is another food that has a lot of benefits as an essential oil. Plant Therapy recommends using its orange essential oil for its energizing, antibacterial, immune-boosting, and cleansing properties.
We use rosemary in dishes and even cocktails, but it also has some healing properties when used as an essential oil: It can combat fatigue, skin problems, and muscle inflammation. This bottle comes with a small pipette for ease of use.
