How to Create a Daily EO Routine


"We Become What We Repeatedly Do" Sean Covey - When I was introduced to essential oils it was all very exciting! I've always loved a natural approach to anything and the oils held such promise. I couldn't wait for my EOs to arrive and when they did, I tucked them safely away from harm. As the saying goes, "out of sight, out of mind".

To use your EOs to the fullest, you need to get comfortable with those little blue bottles. You do that by using your oils and creating your own habits and daily routine.

What would a daily routine look like?

Early morning: The first thing I want even before coffee is water. I keep a stainless steel SIGG water bottle on the kitchen counter filled with water and a couple drops of Lemon, this water bottle goes with me everywhere too.

Keep Your Citrus EOs Handy!

We know it's important to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Help yourself drink more water by adding 2 to 3 drops of a citrus essential oil. With every glass you're helping your body cleanse and detoxify. Lemon in your water will give you energy and reduce stress. Never underestimate citrus oils, they're important for depression, focus and infection too.

Keep your EOs mainstream by making them part of the household, out and about and all through the house :))

It took some work but I made Oil Pulling a habit, using EOs and coconut oil. If you'd like to learn more about it {CLICK HERE}. I do this most nights now but it took placing my EOs in plain sight for me to remember, kind of like a Post-it Note. Melaleuca and a Thieves type blend (Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, Rosemary, Lemon, and Lavender) reside on the back of the bathroom sink next to my toothbrush where I can't miss them.

Last but so not least, Frankincense! I take 2 to 3 drops under my tongue twice a day now.

The bottle sits by the ACV so I remember each morning. It didn't take me long at all to get used to the taste, I almost crave it now. Frankincense is a powerhouse EO. It aids in decreasing stress, anxiety and depression, improved circulation, brain function and reduced joint pain. Frankincense is an anti-inflammatory and beneficial for chronic inflammation and, it's regenerative.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention diffusing as part of an EO users daily routine. I love diffusing! It's almost as important as my morning cup of coffee. I keep a few bottles of favorite EOs near my diffuser so I can easily refill when needed.


In summary, don't hide your oils away because they're precious and rare. Keep them in plain sight, get in the habit of using your oils everyday...they're meant to be used everyday.

The goal is to bring EOs mainstream in your household! It's important to develop your own daily routine with your oils, you'll love them even more when you do.

How do you keep EOs mainstream in your house?
