  • Hi everyone!

  • Welcome back to Lavendaire.

  • Lately I've been obsessed with essential oils, so today I want to share seven easy ways to

  • use essential oils in your home.

  • The first method is simple: Use an essential oil diffuser.

  • I use my diffuser daily and fill it up with whatever scents I feel like at the moment.

  • I love blending different oils to create new aromas.

  • It's like my own way to be creative.

  • You can check out my blog post that I've linked down below for my favorite recipes.

  • But the best part of this is there are no rules.

  • You can really put whatever oils you feel like.

  • Secondly, you can put essential oils in DIY cleaning sprays.

  • These are a great, non-toxic way to clean your home.

  • First, make sure you use a glass spray bottle because essential oils can degrade plastic.

  • Here are the ingredients you'll need for today's recipe:

  • Mix two tablespoons of castile soap with 10-15 drops of essential oils.

  • I put six drops of lavender, six drops of rosemary, and three drops of grapefruit essential oil.

  • Then add two cups of distilled water and shake well.

  • This recipe is safe to use on all surfaces and it's best when used with a microfiber cloth.

  • If you're curious, I'll list the most powerful essential oils for cleaning in my blog post

  • as well as two other recipes for all-purpose cleaners using ingredients such as white vinegar and vodka.

  • So you could check all of that in the link below.

  • If you don't have a diffuser, you could create your own rice diffuser

  • by simply filling a small bowl with rice then adding a few drops of your favorite essential oils.

  • Here I'm adding a blend of sweet orange and rose wood.

  • The scent is sweet, deep, and rich, and it smells so good.

  • Just add a few drops of the oils and mix it in with the rice.

  • Super easy.

  • Later, after the scent dies down, you can mix up the rice to activate the scent from below

  • or just add more essential oil to the rice.

  • You can also scent your drawers and closet with cotton balls or cotton pads.

  • Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils onto the cotton and place it into your

  • drawers and around your closet.

  • I love opening my drawers and smelling that fresh lavender scent.

  • It's so calming and makes a huge difference.

  • Reusable wool dryer balls are a natural way to soften fabric and dry clothes more quickly

  • in the dryer.

  • They work by getting in between your clothes, letting more hot air in and around your laundry.

  • What you can do is add a few drops of essential oils onto your wool balls a few minutes before

  • tossing them into the dryer.

  • This is a natural way to gently scent your laundry without using dryer sheets that are

  • laced with chemicals and artificial scents.

  • This method is the most fun by far: Tear off a piece of tissue and put a couple drops of

  • essential oils on it.

  • Then lay the tissue on your floor and go over it with your vacuum cleaner.

  • Once your vacuum picks up the tissue, the scent will fill the barrel and be dispersed

  • into the air from the other end of your vacuum.

  • It was my first time trying this and I was genuinely impressed.

  • Lastly, you can always mix your essential oils with carrier oils like coconut oil or

  • olive oil for various uses.

  • You can use it as a body oil, massage oil, treatment for skin or scalp issues, and so much more.

  • Here I'm mixing lavender with olive oil, and it smelled so, so good.

  • I'm just using it as a body oil to moisturize, and also applying some to my scalp to treat

  • dry scalp and dandruff.

  • Each essential oil has its own properties and benefits, so Google is your best friend

  • for finding the essential oil for your needs.

  • This video barely scratches the surface with what you can do with essential oils,

  • so I hope you have fun experimenting.

  • Like always, more info and links are in the description below.

  • Love you all so much.

  • Bye!
