#TBT: Which Essential Oil Started It All?

February 15, 2017

#TBT. A day before the weekend officially starts, this Thursday we are feeling a little nostalgic. Eight years ago, Edens Garden started with the mission of providing affordable and high quality essential oils. Since that time, our line of essential oils, synergy blends, carrier oils and accessories has grown tremendously.

Reflecting on the years of expansion, it got us thinking about the essential oils that started it all. From discovering the spa-like beauty of Spike Lavender to the finding the perfect EO combination for Sleep Ease, our essential oil journey has been a great adventure.

Today, we invite all of our loyal fans to share the essential oil that kickstarted their love for aromatherapy. Did you uncover the cleaning power of Lemon first? Or were you initially drawn to the rich aroma of Bulgarian Rose. Share your favorite first EO experience in the comments below!

    Tea tree was what got me into EO. I had heard on tv how tea tree was good for itchy scalp, so I purchased one at a beauty supply store. Not knowing how to use it and with no clear instruction on the box I googled it. There I read it’s many benefits and started reading up on other EO’s and ended up buying lavender and chamomile as my facial skin became sensitive and irritated easily. I was amazed on how it soothed and healed my skin. From there I branched out to other oils. Funny thing is I didn’t use any of these oils on my hair until 2- years later, lol.

    My first essential oil, given to me from my mom, was tea tree for my acne-prone skin, when I was a teenager. I never even knew that I was using an essential oil. I had no idea that other EOs existed! 20+ years later I bought a few familiar oils… peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender. Now, I have many others and am continuing to grow my stash! I’m really enjoying all of the recipes on your blog. Keep them coming! Thank you!

    Hi Carol! We don’t recommend internal use without the consultation of an aromatherapist. Topical use and inhalation are mostly suggested when using essential oils. For muscle relaxation and sleep, we would recommend diffusing the oil at night.

    Love the facts you present on each oil. Mine is lavender mixed in coconut oil. My husbands loves it on my skin.

    My first essential oil was Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) and I used it for wound and general skin care. It was a long time before I tried my second essential oil, which was Peppermint, and I got it for headaches. Now I have dozens of essential oils and enjoy making my own blends. Thank you, Edens Garden for offering high quality oils at very fair prices.Keep up the good work!
