My Daily Essential Oil Routine


I have been getting a lot of questions lately about how I use essential oils on a daily basis.  I have a daily essential oil routine that I could not live without!  Essential oils have powerful properties and therefore are very personal.  That said, the purpose of this post is not for you to duplicate my daily routine.  You have your own set of health issues and goals.

Your oil routine will look totally different from mine…




My Daily Essential Oil Routine


I start the day with frankincense, applying to the bottom of my feet and my chest.  I pray for healing while I am applying the frankincense.

I also use a blend of these oils, frankincense, Hawaiian sandalwood, lavender, myrrh, helichrysum and rose to rejuvenate and refresh my skin.  This has really reduced my wrinkles!


Then, I apply Balance. I adore the refreshing smell of this oil!


I drink a glass of water with a swirl (I dip a toothpick into the essential oil jar and stir it into my water) of lemon essential oil, so refreshing and rejuvenating!


Order essential oils online from our family business.  You will receive the purest essential oils on the market.  Each oil has been evaluated and tested by a third party to ensure natural extraction and to eliminate contamination of any kind.   Thank you for considering purchasing essential oils from our family!  ORDER HERE

After coming downstairs I take my supplements and I put an essential oil in my diffuser.   It really depends on my mood.  I like to start the day off with orange or citrus.  I also like grapefruit.  Depending on the day the oils I use differ.


During school, I use on guard in the diffuser and I also like in tune if I am having trouble concentrating!


Peppermint is my go-to oil.  Oh, how I LOVE peppermint!  That oil makes me feel so much better and gets me through a tough day!  I use it for refreshment, stomach and digestion issues, to fix my bad breath.  I also enjoy it in my diffuser.


When I am feeling stressed out I like to use peppermint or lavender.  I will also re-apply white fir to the bottoms of my feet.

Before bed, I enjoy a drop of lavender or ylang-ylang on my pillow.   I also place a small dish with a drop of cedarwood next to my C-PAP machine.

    I have psoriatic arthritis and I want to get off of my shots and I’ve been so many good things about essential oils. Can you tell me where you place the oil on your feet in the morning or does it matter? Thank you so much!

      Hi Sylvia,
      I place the oil on the center of the bottom of my feet. This area absorbs the essential oils the quickest…some people can even taste the oil in their mouth as quickly as one minute after application! Thanks for your comment!

    Hi Sylvia,
    I was wondering if you could tell me where to get the oils; tarragon, caraway, and anise. I’ve been using DoTerra but they don’t have these oils.
    Thank you

    • Janelle Esker | 13th Feb 16

      I also use doTerra but I would see if you could order those from Young Living which at this point is the only other essential oil company I can recommend. Please let me know how you progress and thank you for your comment!

        Hi, Janelle! Have you researched Edens Garden oils? I have been using them and seeing some excellent results. Since they have cut out the middle man, their prices are very reasonable, and that helps me a lot, since we are a one-income family. Thanks for your peaceful haven blog!

        • Janelle Esker | 24th Aug 17

          Hi Laura, Thanks for stopping by The Peaceful Haven! I have not checked out Edens Garden Oils but I definitely will. It would be great to have more options!

    I am curious in what ways you use peppermint…since its your go to. I haven’t been diagnosed with an autoimmune as of yet but suspect something.

    • Janelle Esker | 14th Sep 16

      Hi Denean,
      I use Peppermint in several ways. I put a drop in my water if I have an upset stomach. If I feel off or tired I put a few drops in the palm of my hand and inhale, then rub the oil into the back of my neck. I also put it directly on the spot that is aching. I hope this will help and that you will feel better soon!

    Hi! I’m so thankful I found your blog! I am currently waiting on results to see if I have (and from what I read, I do) have Sjogren’s Syndrome. I don’t want a lot of medications for treatment, I’m a firm believer in Young Living Oils and will start there, but I was wondering if you use a carrier oil when you are applying them.

    I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog!

    • Janelle Esker | 29th Mar 17

      Hi Cassie, My daughter has Sjogren’s so I am very familiar with the disease! I do use a carrier oil with most of the oils listed. I especially do the first few times I use them. I like coconut oil or olive oil and recently have been trying grapeseed oil and I really like it! Thanks for stopping by!
