In my quest to adopt a more natural wellness and lifestyle, I have put together three of my favourite winter essential oil blends inspired by other recipes from the Herbs & Essential Oil bundle.

It’s an incredible resource pack that contains:

  • beginners guides,
  • essential oil profiles and safety information,
  • how to use what, when and how,
  • how to incorporate the oils in your daily routine
  • and so many printables to get this all organised!

What’s more amazing, its that all the authors of this bundle got together with Ultimate Bundles to provide these resources at a very affordable price. You can download all the resources directly to your computer and also have online access for up to a year. It also includes a number of memberships and training opportunities. I explore some of the resources here.

Since using essential oils at home, I haven’t fallen ill to the usual common cold and allergies that I regularly suffer from. Furthermore, I have not bought any floor detergents and cleaning sprays in months, which helps me in my mission to reduce household waste! I owe a lot of my learning to the Herbs & Essential Oils Bundle – it is definitely my go-to guide and I highly recommend you get your copy. It also makes an awesome Christmas gift for anyone who is interested in natural wellness, self-care and reducing household waste.
