I never set out to have an essential oil collection, it just happened. I received my first essential oils a couple years ago as part of a PR sample. The brand sent over several items including a few of their essential oils: Peppermint, Sweet Orange, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Chill Pill, & Lemon Tea Tree. 


They sent me some of their classics, which I continue to use even today. Inspired by the amazing scents & the multitude of uses, I slowly but surely grew my essential oil collection over the last couple years. Since they're literally a part of my daily life, I figured it'd be fitting to write a post!

This is my updated & current collection. Some are classics that I'll continue to repurchase whereas others are hit & miss. I like to mix & match scents by adding a few drops into my mini diffuser. I can create my own perfumes, body scrubs, bath bombs, & more with essential oils. Woohoo!

My Top Favorite Essential Oils 

Eucalyptus - I use this as aromatherapy to invigorate my senses, open the sinuses, & improve mental focus. Great for use in massage oils & muscles rubs to give off a cooling effect. Makes a fantastic scent for a room or car freshener.
Peppermint - I use Peppermint in the same way I use Eucalyptus, but it smells different enough that I buy both.
Lavender - I love to use lavender as aromatherapy to calm me down or aid in sleeping.
Lemon - Great for cleaning since it's a natural disinfectant.
Tea Tree - My #1 favorite. I use this for blemishes, bug bites, cuts, scrapes,  cleaning & also for aromatherapy.  I add some drops to my shampoo to decrease dandruff. Natural disinfectant.

Other Favorites

Bergamot - Smells like Earl Grey tea. Enough said.
Sweet Orange - One of my favorite citrus scents other than Lemon.
Rosemary - I adore the scent for aromatherapy to help with alertness.


Not Favorites But Would Repurchase Occasionally

Lemongrass - An acquired scent that not everyone loves.
Grapefruit - Citrus scent that is slightly similar to Sweet Orange, depends how many citrus essential oils you want.
Blood Orange - Another great smelling citrus option, but not vital if you have Sweet Orange.
Cinnamon - Not as powerful/cinnamon-y as I wanted. May repurchase from other brands.
Nutmeg - Not as powerful/nutmeg-y as I wanted. May repurchase from other brands.
Chill Pill - Relaxing, but you can create a similar mix from ones you have on hand.
4 Thiefs - Can mix & match essential oils on hand to create a similar scent.
Lemon Tea Tree - Just mix lemon + tea tree & make this at home.
Sage - Not as powerful/sage-y as I wanted. Might try scent from another brand.

Would Not Repurchase

Patchouli - An acquired scent that not everyone loves.
Anise Star - An acquired scent that not everyone loves.


Essential oils have so many uses, but that's for another post.
