CREATIVE ESSENTIAL OIL IDEAS TO CELEBRATE EASTER AT HOME
WHY USE ESSENTIAL OILS ON EASTER?
This year, although our celebrations of Easter are likely to look different as we embrace official guidelines for physical and social distancing, it is important to keep in mind that we can optimize this period to promote a feeling of renewal and encourage the cleansing our body, mind, and home. As celebrations of new life, both Easter and the arrival of Spring are actually ideal times to commence with a new beginning, and Essential Oils with floral, citrus, and herbaceous scents are particularly known to inspire the energy, activity, decluttering, and purification that may be needed at this time of year.
Read on to discover our selection of Essential Oils that are perfect for celebrating the essence of Easter at home!

While the use of individual Essential Oils is the traditional, classic manner of applying them, their beneficial properties are known to be heightened when they are used in combination with one or more other beneficial Essential Oils, which can help to supplement the positive effects – individual experimentation is encouraged! The final mix will exude a different scent than the original oils on their own would, but the resulting effects will be undoubtedly enhanced. NDA also offers the following ready-to-use blends comprised of 100% pure Essential Oils. These blends are also known as Synergy Blends, which contain oils that are energizing, uplifting, and refreshing.
Invigorating Synergy Blend: Made up of Rosemary, Juniper Berry, Lemongrass, Nutmeg, Fir Balsam, Pepper Black, and Lemon oils.
Vitality Synergy Blend: Made up of Lavender, Lemongrass, Mandarin, Patchouli, Geranium Egypt, Ylang Ylang, and Juniper Berry oils.
HOW CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS ON EASTER?
Several, if not all, of the oils in these lists are reputed to invigorate the body, revitalize the senses, improve the mood, enhance energy, and brighten the mood of an environment. They can be diffused, diluted in a warm bath, used to make a room or fabric freshener, incorporated into a candle formulation, applied as a roll-on personal scent or body spray, or be added to a massage oil blend, among various other applications.
These Essential Oils may also be added to several items that can be incorporated into a fun, sensory gift basket. Some suggested items for an Easter gift basket or Easter-themed activities for children include scented blowing bubbles, scented paint, scented putty, scented puppets, and scented sidewalk chalk. Suggested sensory Easter gifts for adults include scented candles, scented hand soaps, and scented moisturizers.
ESSENTIAL OIL SIDE EFFECTS
As with all other New Directions Aromatics products, Essential Oils are for external use only. It is imperative to consult a medical practitioner before using these oils for therapeutic purposes. Pregnant and nursing women are especially advised not to use Essential Oils without the medical advice of a physician, as they may have effects on certain hormone secretions and it is unclear whether these effects are transferable to babies at these stages of development. These oils should always be stored in an area that is inaccessible to children, especially those under the age of 7.
Those with the following health conditions are especially recommended to be advised by a physician: cancer, heart-related ailments, skin disorders or allergies, hormone-related ailments, or epilepsy. Individuals that are taking prescription drugs, undergoing major surgery, or who are at a greater risk of experiencing strokes, heart attacks, or atherosclerosis are also advised to seek medical consultation prior to use.
Prior to using any Essential Oil, a skin test is recommended. This can be done by diluting 1 drop of the Essential Oil in 4 drops of a Carrier Oil and applying a dime-size amount of this blend to a small area of skin that is not sensitive. Essential Oils must never be used near the eyes, inner nose, and ears, or on any other particularly sensitive areas of skin. Potential side effects of Essential Oils include redness, rash, hives, burning, bleeding disorders, decreased speed of healing, low blood pressure, dizziness, headache, nausea, diarrhea, convulsions, and rapid heartbeat. In the event of an allergic reaction, discontinue use of the products and see a doctor, pharmacist, or allergist immediately for a health assessment and appropriate remedial action. To prevent side effects, consult with a medical professional prior to use.
