Essential Oils can be used aromatically, topically, as well as internally which makes your home a fantastic place to use these natural products for many different uses. At their core, essential oils are natural aromatic compounds and products from the seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark and other parts of the plants that have health-boosting properties.
This post will explore three ways that you can consider using essential oils in your home and kitchen including to clean, relax and to have fun. I hope you enjoy the examples & feel free to share your own ways that you use essential oils at home in the comments below!
1. To Clean
With natural cleansing and purifying properties, certain essential oils can be a helpful part of your regular cleaning routine. Not only can essential oils be used to cleanse surfaces and purify the air, but they leave behind a pleasant aroma that will instantly make your home feel clean and refreshed.

2. To Relax
Essential Oils are a great way to experience the benefits of aromatherapy, as they are simply a mixture of volatile aromatic compounds. These compounds are able to interact with the olfactory, or smell, receptors in the nose.
Our sense of smell can have a profound effect on our emotions, and simply inhaling the aroma can elicit an emotional response. The smell receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, where the scent is perceived and processed.
The doTERRA Yoga Essential Oils Collection is a great option to diffuse and be able to unwind and relax at home while practicing yoga, meditation or mindfulness... or simply reading a good book.
