A Beginner's Guide to Essential Oils

Since 4500 BC, essential oils have been improving our lives. If you’re new to the world of essential oils, we welcome you! At Wyndmere, we love the benefits these naturally derived oils have brought us, and we strive to share their benefits with all who are interested.

Let’s dive in, take a look at where essential oils come from, and explore some of their many benefits. 

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are made from concentrated plant extracts, typically gathered through a distillation or cold pressing process. This allows the oil to capture and carry the plant’s ‘essence’ leaving you with a highly concentrated oil that retains their beneficial elements. 

How to Use Essential Oils

Because these oils are highly concentrated, you’ll want to use them with care and in one of two ways: aromatically or topically. 

Aromatically - To use aromatically, we recommend a  diffuser or nebulizer to infuse scents into your space. Whether it’s a kitchen, office, bedroom, or even car, adding in oils can make a big difference to your day. 

Topically – Before using topically, be sure to dilute to 3% or less with carrier oils or unscented lotions.  At Wyndmere, we make it convenient for you by offering pre-made essential oil blends that are already diluted in various products including mists and roll-ons.

The Benefits of Essential Oils

The benefits of essential oils are endless, but can be captured in three main categories: 

  • Support emotional and physical well-being. Utilize these oils to help with mood, anxiety, tension, allergies, nausea, headaches, sleeping etc. 
  • Clean your home. From cleansing to degreasing, combine with water in a spray bottle to help naturally clean your home. 
  • Elevate your skincare routine. Apply topically (but diluted!) to clear toxins, fight blemishes, and restore balance to your skin. 

Where to Start YourEssential Oil Journey

Not sure where to start? Well, it all depends on what you’re looking for! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by choices, here are three of our recommendations for beginners:

  • Lavender has very calming properties, best for winding down at the end of a stressful day (or the end of a stressful meeting!). Lavender also has natural cleansing properties and can be a useful addition to home cleaning products.

  • Peppermint is perfect for a nice, energizing focus. Try putting a drop in the bottom of your shower for a refreshing way to start your day. 

  • Eucalyptus is a multipurpose oil to add to your collection. From helping to clear sinuses to aiding concentration, this is a great one to keep handy in your bag. 

  • Use one aroma at a time, or mix them together for your own personalized experience. We also offer blends to help you find the ideal combination you're looking for.
