An ESSENTIAL lesson about essential oils (for beginners)

Robyn Stevens

Essential oils can improve the condition of your skin and hair, as well as help boost your mood and calm the mind. We use a lot of essential oils in our DIY recipes and frequently mix them with our aloe vera gel and spray, as well as all our raw butters. 

We’ve heard from some of you who are new to DIYs that you aren’t familiar with many essential oils and don’t know how to start building up a basic kit. One GLN customer made us laugh by writing, “I wish I could tell you that I’ve been using essential oils for a decade... but in truth, I only have a bottle of lavender that’s been in the back of my medicine cabinet for ten years!” Hey, we have to start somewhere!

Sue-Kate describes her most used essential oils and why she mixes them with her favorite GLN products — aloe vera gel and African shea butter. For those of you interested in putting together a starter kit of essential oils, this video is a great guide!
