Are you thinking about using essential oils or would just like to learn more about them? This is a great place to start!
Some time ago I decided to really test out this essential oils thing and see what the hype was really about. How do they work? Are they really effective? (I mean, for real? Or are people just trying to sell me stuff.) Which company should I buy them from? How do I use them?
I have learned a lot in these past few years and I want to share that with you! Stay tuned for an upcoming series here on Proverbial Homemaker that will detail everything I’ve discovered and why I actually spend hard earned money on essential oils.
My Favorite Essential Oils Company
I started out by trying Native American Nutritionals which has since merged with and rebranded to Rocky Mountain Oils. I have interviewed the leaders in this company, asked tough questions, tested their products for well over a year, and pressed them on important issues. Their quality and integrity stands firm and I always end up choosing them over other companies.
Why do I choose Rocky Mountain Oils?
- Their oils are effective (I can say that from experience)
- They work hard for quality (you can look up third party tests online for every bottle!)
- They have good prices (they keep competitive pricing in the market)
- They provide free shipping in the US (yay for free shipping!)
- They’re not an MLM (I’m not anti-MLM, it’s just not my thing *dodges tomatoes*)
I have had opportunities to join MLM’s and I just always come back to Rocky Mountain Oils. I’m sure I’ll try out some other products as well as people ask me to compare them and my curiosity is piqued, but RMO will continue to be my go-to source!
From 11/26 – 30 Rocky Mountain Oils is having an AWESOME Cyber Weekend sale! This is the perfect time to try out oils for the first time, branch out, or stock up! 10% off all orders, 20% off all orders over $150, and an extra 20% off on featured kits!
I personally cannot wait for the Black Friday deal.
Where to Start with Using Essential Oils
I am often asked what oils to try first when you are just getting started. That’s an easy one to answer!
Immune Strength – We use Immune Strength year round but especially in the fall/winter to fight cold and flu and shorten the duration of illness. This is the oil I FIRST tried and it was noticeably effective and convinced me to try more.
Lavender – This is such a versatile oil and we use it all. the. time. I have Lavender in a roller bottle with some fractionated coconut oil
RMO Essentials Kits – If you’re looking for a pre-assembled beginner’s kit for a certain purpose, Rocky Mountain Oils has fabulous Essentials Kits now. The Mom’s Essentials Kit is my favorite! You’ll want to check them out.
Roller Bottles – I mentioned roller bottles above and they really are essential, especially for the busy mom. The dark glass ones at RMO are better than the first clear ones I bought on Amazon. Pop some in your purse and you have on-the-go applicators for first aid, fighting off germs, or tummy troubles.
Fractionated Coconut Oil – You’ll want fractionated coconut oil or another carrier oil for properly diluting oils. You can find a beginning dilution chart here.
Diffuser – Our favorite is the AromaCloud Spa because it fills a large open space such as our main living area. We also enjoy the new Aroma Spa for the bedroom and the Breeze Diffuser when we need a shot of oil (no water and it puts out a ton of oil in just a few minutes) when illness hits.
