Here's some practical advice for using essential oils

Known for their great versatility essential oils have many uses in your home, as well as making it smell great! Here are just a few uses for some of the most popular oils

Gum Leaves


Eucalyptus is a great solvent; use it for removing sticky things anywhere!
  • Chewing gum from shoes,
  • Labels from almost anything (be careful with varnished items as essential oils can strip varnish).
  • And my favourite, grease from the kitchen range hood, leaving behind a lovely fresh scent.

Citrus oils

lemon essential oilCitrus oils have a short use by date, don’t waste them!  So long as they smell okay, you can use them in the mop bucket for cleaning the kitchen or bathroom floors.  They will:
  • De-grime
  • Kill germs
  • Leave behind a lovely scent

Lemon myrtle

I love this oil!!  A fresh, calming scent combined with the energy of a lovely warm hug from mother earth. Very comforting, but also useful as it can help with:
  • Eliminating unpleasant odours
  • Keeping microbes, fungi and viruses away
  • Keeping insects away, it has a similar chemistry to citronella and can be sprinkled in door and window tracks to discourage insects.  I have used it in a spray for years to successfully keep lice away from my favourite niece

Clary sage, Salvia sclareaClary Sage

This is my go to oil for:
  • Dealing with PMS cramps, in fact any muscular cramps
  • Encouraging labour in full term pregnancy
  • Creating a relaxed atmosphere for a dinner party
