Petitgrain Essential Oil Benefits


If you're relatively new to the "oils" world, then you've probably never heard of it, but keep reading, it may just become one of your favorites!

Petitgrain comes from the orange tree, but it is not orange essential oil. Orange oil comes from the rind of the fruit, while petitgrain comes from the leaves and twigs. (Neroli is derived from the flowers.)

Here are some ailments that petitgrain can help with:

Some of my favorite ways to use it:


 Diffuse 4-6 drops petitgrain and 4-6 drops bergamot 30 min to an hour

Panic Button Roller: 

10 drops petitgrain
10 drops bergamot
10 drops frankincense
10 drops clary sage
10 drops vetiver

add to a 10ml roller and fill with your favorite carrier. Roll on back of neck, wrists, and or chest when you start to panic.
This mix may also help you with insomnia when you apply at night just before bed.

Natural Deodorant Spray:

2 Tbsp magnesium oil
10 drops petitgrain or 5 petitgrain/5 lavender
Pinch of sea salt
witch hazel to fill a 2oz glass spray bottle

Combine sea salt with essential oil in a small bowl. Add to spray bottle, then add magnesium oil and witch hazel to fill. Shake and spritz underarms.

Spearmint Essential Oil

I have to admit, my favorite thing about Spearmint is its smell! I love to diffuse it while in the bath or even add it to my bath bombs. It's the perfect oil to add to a lip gloss, and it goes well with other oils. I LOVE to put this oil on my diffuser necklace to keep me energized and uplifted.

Here are some other uses for spearmint:

Black Pepper

It's definitely one of the underrated EOs.
I LOVE this oil in my pain & sore muscle rub but it has many other uses.
 Bonus: It's inexpensive!

It's not just a tasty spice anymore. Give it a try!

The Many Wonders of Lavender Essential Oil

When I first started with essential oils, I'll admit, lavender used to get on my nerves. It seemed like every time I had an ailment, I was told that lavender was the answer. I just didn't get how one oil could do so many different things! Honestly, I thought it was a bunch of bologna.

Fast forward a few months. After a rocky start, lavender and I are best friends. It's one of my very favorite oils and, most importantly, it works!

Have an earache? Rub a little lavender around the outside of your ear.
Stressed? Diffuse lavender.
Sunburn? Lavender
Scar? Lavender
and so on and so forth.

Buy it by the boatload, people! If I could have only one oil, it would probably be this one.
