As an aromatherapist, I have access to more essential oils than i care to mention… and for an essential oil addict like me, it can get quite expensive keeping such a large kit. However, as with any artist, I need my colour palette to do my work.
If I was to pick just 4 basic essential oils that are must haves for around the home, I’d have to pick these...
Grandmother Lavender, arguable the most well known little lady in the Western world. She's so elegant, so lovely, so regal, and so so comforting. And, so under-rated.
A GRAND HISTORY Lavender has been used for over 2,500 years. Ancient persians, greeks, and romans added the flowers to their bathwater to help wash and purify their skin. In fact, the word "lavender" comes from the latin word "lavare," which means "to wash."
Jiaogulan for Weight Loss, Cholesterol, Blood pressure, Energy, Immune System, Endurance, Inflammation, Strength, LongevityJiaogulan is a plant that grows wild in China, as well as many other countries throughout Asia. In China, it has been used for many years as a medicinal and energizing tea in the local regions where it grows.

Sweet Fennel ( aka Foeniculum vulgare) was the first essential oil I ever purchased. Distilled from the crushed seeds of fennel. It has a very sweet, slightly earthy/spicy, clean aroma similar to aniseed or licorice sweets. As a herb, it was recognised in ancient times of Greece and Roman as a slimming aid and weight loss suppressant.
Since ancient times this aromatic herb has been believed to have properties to improve the memory. Perhaps because of this, rosemary became an emblem of both fidelity and remembrance in literature and folklore. Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on Anzac Day and sometimes on Remembrance Day.
Shatavari, or Asparagus Racemosus has been used for a long time in Ayurveda as a treatment for the female reproductive system. The name of this plant has a direct translation meaning having one hundred roots. Shativari root herb has been used for centuries in tonic, tablet, and powder form.
Rhodiola rosea is also known as golden root grows in cool climates of Eastern Europe and Asia. It is used in traditional healing modalities for treating fatigue and mood swings. Rhodiola root herb is a potent adaptogen that helps the body and mind. The main compounds identified in this flower include rosin, salidroside and rhodioloside.
