Using essential oils is intuitively simple. But, with many oils available, and seemingly endless combinations, beginners can sometimes feel overwhelmed.
I like to suggest that beginners start off with what I call the “holy trinity” of essential oils: lavender, lemon and peppermint. These are very easy oils to use and there are many everyday applications using just these three essential oils. I’ve provided a list of some examples for you here.
Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)
- Apply to the bottom of feet or on a pillow before sleeping
- Use to calm reaction to a bee sting or bug bite
- Use with bath salts for a relaxing spa bathing experience
- Apply to wrists or inhale when traveling to ease motion upset
- Lightly apply to sooth sunburn or scalded skin
- Apply to back, hands, or feet of a restless or agitated child
- Use to calm and soothe diaper rash
- Calm sensitive skin and soothe pores after hair removal
- Apply to dry, chapped lips before applying lip balm
- Use with peppermint for a healthy scalp massage
- Add to lotion for a stress-relieving hand massage
Lemon (Citrus limon)
- Apply a drop to a water bottle or to water served at restaurants
- Diffuse automatically or apply topically for mood elevation
- Add to a drop of honey to soothe a cough or sore throat
- Apply directly to cold sores for soothing relief
- Add a drop of lemon and peppermint to your toothbrush after use
- Diffuse in a room to neutralize odors
- Remove gum, label adhesives, and greasy substances from fabric
- Use to clean kitchen counters and stainless steel appliances
- Add to olive oil for a non-toxic furniture polish
Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
- Rub on stomach or feet, or take one drop internally to calm indigestion or upset stomach

I am very pleased to announce our latest workshop, Sacred Breath and the Art of Forgiveness, Love and Gratitude.
Date: Saturday, September 18, 2010
Time: 10AM PDT – 2PM PDT
Where: Kat Troyer’s house, 4 miles North of Half Moon Bay in El Granada, CA
To Register: Contact Fred Krazeise at 703-623-5889, or by email at email@example.com, or call Kat Troyer at 415-290-4249
Join Fred Krazeise (nationally certified massage therapist, Intrinsic Coach®, Reiki Master) and Kat Troyer (Reiki Master / Teacher) for an introductory workshop designed to reintroduce basic breathing techniques, mindfulness, and the are of self-forgiveness, love and gratitude to your life.
Breath is the source of our life – it is where our spirit lives. The first thing we do when we come into the world is take in a breath. The last thing we do when we leave this world is let out a breath. The quality of breathing is linked to the quality of our interaction in life. Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. The process of Hoʻoponopono helps to correct, restore and maintain good relationships.
In this 3-hour course participants will learn:
o Three useful physical relaxation techniques that can help you reduce muscle tension and manage the effects of the fight-or-flight response on your body
o A basic introduction to the Ho’oponopono process which will help each participant release past resentment and anger, and leave them more balanced, peaceful and complete.
Workshop participants should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.
This seminar is limited to 6 participants, so register early!
