Over the past couple of weeks on Instagram and FB, I highlighted all of the oils from the Home Essentials Kit which comes with 10 oils, and the petal diffuser. The 10 oils include 6 single oils, all 15ml: Frankincense, Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Melaleuca (Tea Tree), Oregano and 4 blends 15ml, also 15ml except DeepBlue: OnGuard, Breathe, DigestZen and DeepBlue (5ml).
Below I will recap each oil including history, science and ways to use the oil at home for health, wellness, with your family, at the gym, in your car etc. If you’re ready to be proactive about your health instead of reactive, this is a great way to start. You might say, “it’s too expensive” but think about the cost of the latte you get each day, or every time you visit the Dr and get a script for something – I prefer the cost of the preemptive strike vs paying the cost financially and/or physically later. Also, buying the kit with a wholesale membership (think Costco or Sam’s club, etc), will save you 25% on the kit as well as on all of your future purchases. There is absolutely no requirements to do anything other than save money; opportunities do exist to earn free oils, however, they are optional and never required. Let’s learn about the oils that come in the kit – it’s a long post, with a ton of great info!
Frankincense is an essential oil distilled from the resin of the Boswellia trees, primarily from species carterii and serrata. It is an oil rich in historical uses that stems back to ancient Egypt, the Middle East and Greece, when Frankincense was used in religious ceremonies and embalming procedures, as well as to China, where it was a mainstay in traditional Chinese medicine. It was readily traded, being used as perfume, insect repellent and as medicine for wounds. It is a powerful oil and a little goes a long way.
The main compounds in Frankincense oil are monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes; most recently, research has shown that the component Beta-elemene, a terpene found in frankincense, can pass across the blood barrier, and could be a candidate for fighting abnormal cell growth.
So how can I use Frankincense oil at home?
Frankincense is a powerful oil and based on it’s compounds, has many uses:
1. Brighten up your skin – mix a drop into your moisturizer to nourish your skin.
2. Reduce appearance of scars and stretch marks – mix a drop with a couple drops of carrier oil such as almond, coconut or jojoba and apply directly to scars or stretch marks.
3. Harden your nails – apply a drop directly to nails to strengthen nails.
4. Uplift your mood – feeling down or need a pick me up? Put a drop of frankincense in your hands and cup them around your nose, taking a deep breath in for the aromatic benefits or diffuse frankincense with wild orange and peppermint for an instant attitude adjustment.
5. Relax your mind and body – Add a couple of drops into a warm bath to calm and relax your nerves
6. Break up congestion – Nose stuffed from environmental threats? Mix a drop with oils of rosemary and peppermint and apply directly to your chest and throat.
7. Combat sore muscles – apply Frankincense direct to sore or overworked muscles.
8. Use as a supplement to help boost the immune system – Frankincense is GRAS – generally regarded as safe by the FDA, and is approved as a food additive and flavoring agent. It can be taken as a supplement to boost cellular health. Place a drop in a capsule and take one time a day.
When they hear Oregano essential oil, most people hear or assume it’s just for culinary use. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! Truth is, Oregano is a powerhouse of an oil, a strong antioxidant and cleanser.
Oregano oil stems from the Mediterranean, where it was first used in the culinary sense; in Greece it was referred to as the “joy of the mountains” with oros meaning mountain and ganos meaning joy. It was used also as a potent anti poison antidote, to heal wounds, treat headaches and to treat common congestion. In Roman and Greek marriage ceremonies, brides and grooms were often crowned with oregano laurels and it was used in middle ages in ritualistic practices for health, good luck, and happiness.
Oregano is made up of the chemically active compounds carvacrol and thymol (also found in Thyme essential oil). Both carvacrol and thymol are strong antibacterial and antimicrobial agents. Additionally, carvacrol has been found to be a strong antioxidant, demonstrating both protective and restorative effects neurologically, after administration of chemo drugs (reported from 2013 research study). Because Oregano is high in phenols, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing it; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with Coconut Oil when applied to the skin.
So how do I use Oregano oil at home?
First off, to reiterate, Oregano is very potent – one drop is all you need in most applications, and it should be diluted in carrier oil prior to administering to your skin.
1. Use as a supplement to boost your immune system: Oregano essential oil is GRAS, Generally regarded as safe by the FDA and is approved as a food additive and flavoring agent. Add a drop to a capsule and take once a day.

6. Hitting public restrooms and or showers in the summer time with bare feet? Combat the nasties by applying diluted oregano oil in coconut oil to the bottoms of your feet.

Dried lavender herb and essential aromatherapy oil
Lavender has been used and cherished for over 2500 years for its unmistakable aroma and myriad of therapeutic benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for mummification, bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume; aromatherapist Rene Gattefosse used lavender to stop the progression of gas gangrene in his hands. An explosion in his lab left his hands covered with burns and after only 1 application of lavender essence, the gangrene stopped progressing, and healing began to take place.
It’s ability to calm and soothe the mind and body continue to be Lavender’s most notable qualities.
Ongoing research in both China and Romania with lavender has shown it to be a super strong antioxidant. Lavender has also been shown to regulate blood sugar; other research has found that lavender consistently relieves symptoms such as sleep disturbance, anxiousness and low quality of life with no reported side effects, interactions, or withdrawal symptoms. The main constituents in lavender are linalool, a-terpineol and linalyl acetate.

Melaleuca (Tea Tree)
Tea Tree hails from Australia, and traditionally the crushed leaves were used to heal wounds. Australian chemist and essential oil researcher Arthur Penfold confirmed that Tea Tree oil was a potent antibiotic as part of his studies, and found it was 13x more potent than Carbolic Acid (or phenol), which was the common disinfectant used at the time of his studies.
Over 300 studies have been done with Tea Tree oil. It has been shown to be antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-parasitic, analgesic and decongestant. Recently Tea Tree was studied being co-administered with antibiotics in respects to safety, and no adverse reactions were found. So, if you have to take antibiotics, add in Tea Tree as a double whammy.
So how do I use Tea Tree at home?
1. Tea Tree has been show to be effective for the following things: acne, ear aches, lice, halitosis, congestion, skin rashes and a number of other things. It is a very potent oil, so use sparingly. It is GRAS, generally regarded as safe for ingestion by the FDA, and should only be ingested when put in a capsule.

Lemon is native to Asia and has been documented as being used in Ayurvedic medicine and is referenced as early as 90 B.C. In Ayurvedic medicine it was used to promote oral health, to aid in digestion and calm nausea, and to nourish the skin and improve complexion.
The main active component in lemon oil is limonene and it is widely studied today for its effects on many disorders. It’s aromatic uses are being studied in patients with dementia and Alzheimers and have been shown to improve the personal orientation of patients after being inhaled.

It is effective at promoting cellular health and has antiseptic, antioxidant and invigorating properties.

OnGuard (Protective Blend)
I think I’m most excited about this oil based on it’s versatility and power; it is made of wild orange, clove, cinnamon (from bark), eucalyptus and rosemary. Some of the properties of the oils in OnGuard include antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antiseptic and immune stimulant, and there are even more as well.
Oranges are a cultivated fruit originating in China and India. They were eventually grown in Spain, Italy and Portugal where they were grown for medicinal purposes; oranges were brought to North and South America as well as Mexico from Spain by way of Christopher Columbus.
The use of cloves goes back to ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal practices and they were widely traded in the Middle ages.
Cinnamon is an ancient spice, being referenced in the bible, where it was used as an anointing oil. It was used in Ayurvedic medicinal preparations and as an antibiotic.
Eucalyptus is native to Australia and made it’s way to Africa, India and Southern Europe, then eventually to California. It was studied in the 1800s and found to have many uses, including breath freshening and air purification.
Rosemary also has a history that stems back to ancient Greece, Israel, Rome and Egypt; it is indigenous to the Mediterranean and it was used for metal clarity, pain relief in muscles and to sooth stomachaches.
Orange oil is most commonly used in food safety research and has aromatic compounds like limonene and terpinolene which make it an antiseptic, antibacterial, antidepressant and antifungal.
The main active compound in clove is eugenol; it is a strong antiseptic, antioxidant and immune stimulant. Because clove is so potent, it is important to note that as effective as it is at protecting your body, it is as effective as potentially harming it – use sparingly and safely to reap it’s benefits!
Cinnamon bark is comprised of active compounds cinnamaldehyde and camphor and is potent as an antioxidant and antidiabetic. It is also a powerful purifier and might enhance the function of other oils therefor. It is also antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory to name a few ways it works.
The primary active compound in eucalyptus is called cineole (once called eucalyptol), and there is alpha-terpineol as well; these compounds make eucalyptus a strong antibacterial, anticatarrhal (anti mucous) and antiseptic.
Rosemary is rich in linalool and terpinen-4-ol and is antiseptic and anti-infectous.
So how do I use OnGuard at home?
You can read above just how potent this blend is. Care should be taken when using it; it can cause skin sensitization, so dilute OnGuard in a carrier oil such as coconut oil prior to using topically. It is best applied to the bottoms of the feet but can be used on other areas w.proper dilution.
1. Seasonal threats got you down and out? All of the oils in OnGuard are GRAS, generally regarded as safe for internal use by the FDA. Take internally with a drop in a gelcap.

Breathe (Respiratory Blend)
You can read about peppermint, lemon and melaleuca as single oils above, and Eucalyptus was covered when I talked about OnGuard blend so be sure to go back and check it out. Laurel is an evergreen shrub or tree native to Asia, but which has been used around the Mediterranean for centuries as well; different parts of the shrub were used as to cure indigestion, to dissolve kidney stones, and for a number of other ailments like fever, congestion and head tension to name a few. Ravensara is also an evergreen tree or shrub, and is native to Madagascar, where it was referred to as the “tree that smells” as the entire plant is aromatic. The bark and stem were used specifically as an antibiotic and the leaves traditionally were burned in homes after a death to prevent the spread of disease. Cardamom is known as a culinary spice and was cultivated in India and Sri Lanka. It was used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine for over 3000 years especially for pulmonary disease; Hippocrates taught to use it for coughs, abdominal pain and to deactivate venomous bites.
Laurel is made up of cineol up to 50 percent, a-pinene, eugenol as well as others. It is a strong expectorant. Ravensara is also a strong expectorant containing linalool, a-pinene and limonene; the oil is antibacterial, and antiseptic as well.

Please note that Breathe can be irritating to sensitive skin and dilution in a carrier oil may be necessary.

DigestZen is a blend of Ginger, Peppermint, Caraway, Coriander, Anise, Tarragon and Fennel. The oils in this blend are all GRAS, or generally regarded as safe by the FDA and can be ingested (taken internally), as well as used aromatically and topically.
Most of the oils in this blend have histories that date back to ancient Egypt and Greece (ginger, peppermint, coriander, caraway), the stone age (caraway), ancient Chinese and Japanese cultures (peppermint) and even as far back as 500 B.C. (tarragon).
Ginger has been recorded as being used as a digestive aid and to combat diarrhea and nausea going back over 2500 years. The chewing of fennel seeds after meals to aid in digestion was done in a number of cultures;. Caraway was found in Egyptian tombs. The roots of coriander can be traced back to ancient Israel and Tarragon cultivation dates back to 500 B.C.
All of the oils in DigestZen are made of compounds which aid in digestion but they also contain compounds which make them powerful antioxidants, analgesics and anti-inflammatory oils. Some of the compounds in the oils include terpenes, menthol, zingiberene, liomenene and linalool.
