What essential oils should I start with?
My suggestion is to begin with one to six essential oils. Many of the essential oils have properties that overlap; therefore, a large pharmacy of essential isn’t necessary for the beginner. Lavender (Lavandula officinalis) is one of the first essential oils to begin using. Use it for every application and get to know the essential oil.
Tea tree, peppermint, basil, lemongrass, and lemon may be added to your starter kit. Use Lavender officinalis and tea tree for cuts and wounds; basil, peppermint, and lavender officinalis for digestive conditions; peppermint, lemongrass, lemon, and lavender officinalis to repel insects; and, basil and lavender officinalis for inflammatory conditions. Tea tree is a powerful antifungal. Tea tree and lemon are antiseptic. Lavender officinalis is calming and sedating. Peppermint is calming to the nervous system. Peppermint and lemon are mentally uplifting.
Wintergreen, peppermint, and basil make nice blends for joint and muscle problems. Ravensara and eucalyptus globulus are great additions for respiratory conditions.
