I’ve been using essential oils for years, and they’re, well, essential to my routine! ; ) I grew up in a house where incense and candles were constantly burning, so aromatherapy has always been a part of my life. I’ve found that scents, like meditation, can lift your mood and give you energy. Think about it: How happy do you feel when you smell fresh baked chocolate chip cookies (or Tone It Up protein cookies)?!

I apply different oils every day. When I’m in the shower, I like to spritz or dab oil on my wrists, rub them together, and inhale. I also stash oils in my meditation room, purse, and the drawer next to my desk at the HQ so they’re always on hand! These are my five go-to oils and how I use 'em!

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is energizing, and I love using it in the morning or when I hit an afternoon slump. Did you know it's also used as a natural bug repellent?  Bugs love me...so I'm always looking for something natural to keep them away!

Lavender

I always use this one to unwind before bed. Research has shown that lavender improves sleep quality, decreases anxiety, and quiets your mind before you drift off.

Bergamot

This citrus oil relieves stress and anxiety and creates balance in your mood.

Rosemary

I love this oil mixed with bath salts for a detoxifying soak in my tub!

Grapefruit

The tangy citrus scent helps boost my energy when I need a pick-me-up! gold-glitter-line
