I finally discovered the pleasures of essential oils a couple of months ago when I started using my essential oil diffuser (reviewed here).
Quite a while ago, I received the Peppermint Aromatherapy Singles essential oil from Everyone Aromatherapy. At the time, I didn’t have a diffuser so I used to put a couple of drops of peppermint EO on the wall of my shower so that the steam would activate the scent. It was a good way to use it till I got my diffuser because it really woke me up in the morning! But the effects weren’t as long lasting as putting a few drops in a diffuser. Now I’m cooking!
EveryOne’s peppermint essential oil single is distilled from the leaves of the Mentha piparita plant. It has a strong cool peppermint scent with sweet undertones of peppermint candy. It can be used alone for a happy, uplifting, stimulating effect. It also combines well if added sparingly (so it doesn’t overpower) to rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, orange, or pine EOs. $8.99 for 0.45 fl. oz./13.3 ml
Everyone Aromatherapy Pure Blends Calm
I had been on the hunt for lavender essential oil to help me relax and have an easier time falling asleep so I was thrilled when I received Everyone Aromatherapy Pure Essential Oils Blends Calm a few weeks ago. It’s a blend of lavender, orange and cedarwood. It’s a fantastic scent that I think I like even more than straight lavender oil because of the depth that cedarwood adds. It is indeed relaxing for me. I haven’t tried it this way yet, but EO suggests adding a few drops to bathwater. I may try adding a few drops to the wall for a nighttime shower. $10.99 for 0.45 fl. oz.
Everyone Aromatherapy Pure Blends Uplift
Uplift is described as “refreshing and inspiring”. I can’t say that I’ve come up with any earth shattering inspirations when I diffuse it, but it does make me feel more awake yet centered. A combination of lavender, orange, grapefruit, cedarwood, ylang ylang, and frankincense, it’s a complex scent that I enjoy diffusing in my office when I’m working. $11.99 for 0.45 fl. oz.
In addition to the peppermint single and the two Aromatherapy Blends, Everyone has quite a few other blends and singles. Distilled from fruits, flowers, resins, trees, and spices, Everyone Aromatherapy blends and singles are pure, and they should be diluted in water, oil or body lotion before they’re applied to the skin. They have the excellent quality you expect from Everyone products. Each brown glass bottle comes with a glass dropper.
Plus they’re packaged in cardboard outer boxes to protect the glass bottles.
