Five Uses For Essential Oils

I love multipurpose products because it makes your purchase way more worthwhile, especially if the item is quite expensive. I kindly got sent the Hallelujah Hair Oil from Forest and Shore, which is actually completely organic, natural and made up from 100% essential oils. Although it is meant for hair, it made me realise how many different uses the product could have as it is purely a blend of essential oils.

Here are five uses for essential oils that you can use in your daily routine.

Hair Treatment
Obviously this product is marketed as a hair treatment, but in general if you happen to have some essential oils around the house, it could be used for your hair. I either apply it as a light treatment in damp hair after a shower or before showering as a mask. It is really affective and keeps my hair healthy looking and also smelling very nice!

Certain essential oils, such as lavender and camomile, are very calming and ideal for helping with your sleep. There are products that are specifically formulated as a spray to put on your pillow to help you sleep at night but I actually popped a few drops of this oil (as it contains lavender oil in it) on my pillow case and it smells so calm and relaxing.

You can definitely use essential oils as a body, clothes, laundry and home fragrance! It is so simple to add it in a spray bottle with some water to make it easy to use around the home as well as a body fragrance.

Cuticle Oil
You can pop some of the oil on your cuticles as a hydrating treatment if they are looking and feeling a bit dry. Whether it is your hands or your feet, you can enjoy a mini pamper session at home with your essential oils doubling up as a manicure and pedicure treatment.

Lip Care
Last but not least, the oil can also be used as a lip treatment. Add some essential oil with some sugar for a nourishing scrub or use on its own as a hydrating lip balm / mask. It is so simple and easy to quickly make up and use.

Have you ever used essential oils? What do you use it for?


  1. These are good uses for the essential oils. I use them for sleeping for sure.

  2. I really enjoy using essential oils! I usually use my Jojoba oil on my face before bed to act as a moisturizer but I also like to use it on my body to remedy dry skin as well as in my hair to inject a bit of moisture. xx
