This week we teamed up with Canadian owned and operated, Saje Natural Wellness, to show how you can live healthier happier lives with 100% natural essential oils.
Simple ways to Incorporate Essential Oils to your Daily Routine from Brandi Rivait
Most essential oils are antibacterial so make a bend and use in your house instead of chemical cleaning products that are harmful to our skin and lungs and it’s cheaper. But remember, essential oils go a long way. A couple drops added to a spray bottle will go along way. I use them at the studio as mat cleaner!
Use in a bath to soak your soar muscles, aches, pains, and stress of life away! Your skin is the largest organ, so bathing with oils is an excellent way to absorbed all the benefits the oils have to offer. Add a cup or two of Himalayan salt for extra relaxation.
Oils are one of the best ways because smelling the oils goes right into our lung which then goes directly into he blood stream. I have my diffuser going all day long it give the house a great fresh smell and it’s helping my body, and it purifies the air!
You can place essential oils directly onto your body. Use a carrier oil such as jojoba, avocado, rosehip seed, olive, ect.

*It is important to know that you can have a reaction to essential oils. It may be a good idea to consult with an accredited aromatherapist for any health concerns you may have. Also if you are applying topically try a small patch of skin with a carrier oil before applying to the body. Also if you are pregnant you want to avoid cinnamon, clove, rosemary, and clary sage, all can cause contractions. Lavender, chamomile, ylang, ylang are all safe to use. Some doctors may suggest only using essential oils in the second and third trimester.
