Here are some of the things you might find useful to have in your essential oil toolkit!
Below I’ve listed
Young Living Desert Mist and Dewdrop Diffusers – I love these diffusers. I have both and I keep one in the kitchen and one in our guest room! You can get either one when you order a starter kit (best value… comes with 12 of the top oils for C$200) ORDER HERE and make sure the number 19017226 appears in both the “Enroller” and “Sponsor ID” fields. Or you can pay retail and just get the diffuser!
My absolute favourite – The ARIA Diffuser!
The Aria diffuser has a beautiful glass top so you can see the mist swirling inside! It’s gorgeous in any room! We keep ours in the kitchen where it’s used and seen the most! You can also get the ARIA at a discounted price if you buy it as part of your starter kit.
Note: If you are Canadian, the Aria diffuser is not available in a starter kit. You have to buy it separately, which is what I did. But it’s my absolute favourite diffuser and in my
“The included remote lets you choose from a selection of soothing, built-in sounds, run time, or enjoy the multi-colo
Small Humidifiers For Kids Rooms – I have these in my girls’ rooms and they are really great value for perfectly functional little diffusers! They will diffuse for 3-6 hours and then automatically shut off. Plus the kids love that they change colour, or you can set it on a favourite colour. The girls use them as nightlights as well as mini-humidifiers.
This is how I keep my Essential Oils organized. I like being able to quickly choose the oils I need! I also ordered stickers for the top and I keep them in alphabetical order.
Clear Trays are a staple of my essential oil toolkit – Small or Large – I like to use clear organization trays like these ones. But any tray or container that works for your space is good! The dollar store is a good place to find inexpensive storage options!
When I started to have a larger collection of oils I put up these clear acrylic shelves so that I could access them easily!
Essential Oil Bottle Labels– These are awesome and come with duplicates for when you start a new bottle!
Label Maker – the label maker I use! I label all my blends, roller bottles, cleaning solutions, and beauty products etc..
Amber bottles – You will want a variety of spray bottles and drop bottles as well as roller bottles in your essential oil toolkit for all the amazing ways you will use your oils! The amber color protects your oils from the light.
Colourful Roller Bottles– these are just so HAPPY! The girls love to use these for the roller bottles they make to take with them to school. (And yes, you can use clear jars instead of amber- just don’t keep your oils in the sun etc…)
Aloe Vera (100% Natural) – I add this into several of my oil mixes (plus it is 100% natural- most of the bottles you find at the grocery store are not!)
Fractionated Coconut Oil – a natural carrier oil for your roller bottles. Typically you add your drops of oil to your roller bottle first, then fill the rest with coconut oil.
Jojoba Oil – I love this to remove make-up and I use it for roller bottles and moisturizer that I use on my face as it does not clog pores. (Coconut oil can clog pores so it’s not the best choice for your face).
Wool Dryer Balls – I use about 3-4 dryer balls with each load with a drop of oil added to each one. See how to use Wool Dryer Balls and Essential Oils instead of dryer sheets in this blog post from Brooke at Nesting with Grace.
Essential Oil Notebook – I use this cute little book to keep track of my favourite blends and recipes!
Remember, just like with your oils…you don’t have to rush out and buy everything right away. You can build your supplies and oils for your essential oil toolkit over time as you figure out what you need and what works for you!
