Lavender is a basic of enough essential oil that even a beginner can run with it.

A favorite amongst essential oil lovers is peppermint. Peppermint can be used as something you put in your hot cocoa or coffer or it can be used as a comforting aid. Taking peppermint essential oils and rubbing it on the forehead can help relieve sinus pressure. Peppermint is also known to be a great way to keep up your energy.
