22 Apr How to use your random oils
I was talking to a member of our tribe the other day about a couple of oils she’d received in a pack and still hadn’t used them yet. Why? Because she was a bit stuck! When we first get into using Essential Oils it can be super overwhelming with all of the information that you’re given, which is why it’s good to have a supportive mentor! We talked through some simples ways that she could use the oils in her life, and now she uses one of them weekly! Woo!
This got me thinking though, what oils am I a bit stuck with? What oils are YOU a bit stuck with? I did a shout out on Instagram, and these were four oils that kept coming up in your responses. There will be a part 2, as I didn’t want you to read a novel! haha Enjoy!

The Oil of Humility & Non-Attachment
“Oregano cuts through the fluff of life and teaches individuals to do the same. It removes blocks, clears negativity, and cuts away negative attachments. Oregano is a powerful oil.” – Emotions & Essential Oils book
Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional practices. The primary chemical components of Oregano is carvacol. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with a carrier oil when applied to the skin. Oregano is a popular cooking spice. Oregano’s aroma acts as an enhancer and equaliser in essential oil blends.
