I was first introduced to essential oils 3 years ago during my time working as a camp counselor. I instantly fell in love with these beautiful oils that support my body + needs in a natural way. To me, oils are one of the many devices used in holistic health and I have seen m a j o r benefits since incorporating them into my life. I was recently introduced to a new brand of oils from my Best Friend called Revive.
Revive is truly one of the most amazing essential oil companies I have come across. I love them for a number of different reasons, here are a few:
They are 100% Pure Oils. Revive sources their natural ingredients from all over the world ensuring you get the best quality of oil.
They are sustainably sourced and the quality of ingredients are sourced ethically.
They conduct lab testing. If a plant or oil doesn’t meet the quality standards, revive won’t use it.
They are community focussed. They like to support family owned farms and I quote from their website…“people whose lives are tied closely to the land”.
They are never tested on animals.
They distill the oils at lower temperatures to ensure the benefits of the plant are preserved.
These are just a *few* of the reasons I found when looking at investing in this brand. When it comes to good quality essential oils, the prices are a l w a y s through the roof. As I kept researching, I found that revive offer these beautiful quality oils at a much lower price without using a MLM approach. Revive give people the opportunity to have access to beautiful quality oils at a much cheaper price without any major commitments.
Most of you know how I choose to take a more holistic approach when it comes to healing + medicine. I have found essential oils to be a vital part of supporting my body. I love to use my oils to aid in all different area’s of my life. From anxiety + sleep support, to nurturing my immune system and making low toxic body + cleaning products for my home. Essential oils are SO versatile and I love that they are a natural way to support different aspects of our lives.
The quality of Revive essential oils are truly phenomenal. In my recent order I went back to basics and purchased peppermint, lavender, wild orange, Siberian fur and a head ache relief blend. They smell so pure and they feel so beautiful on my skin. They are also okay to ingest which is a big tick for me. Obviously not every single oil is made to be ingested. I encouraged you to look up on their site as to which ones you should and shouldn’t ingest.
I want to delve a little deeper into peppermint, lavender and wild orange essential oil. Let’s jump into the benefits of the oils I use, why going back to basics is always best and how I use these oils to support me through out my day.
This is hands down my all time favourite essential oil. It’s the one I am always finding myself reaching for and it always helps to support me + my body. It can be used aromatically, topically and internally.
This is my tried & true head ache relief. I love to place a drop of oil in the palm of my hand, place a little bit on the tips of my fingers and rub in gentle circular motions on my temples. Peppermint is s t r o n g, so trust me when I say that a little bit goes a long way. Even though peppermint is quite cooling it’s important that you dilute it with a carrier oil of your choice. A little side note with this: Try to rub more towards the hair line when rubbing your temples because it can get in your eyes and cause a little burn.
Peppermint is amazing for car sickness. Yes, I am 24 years old and still get car sick. It sucks! But I am so thankful I can use peppermint oil to support me when this happens. I place a drop of oil into the palm of my hand, press my thumb into the oil and then press my thumb to the roof of my mouth. I find this is one of the only things that helps to truly alleviate my car sickness.
It can also be used to help with joint pain, in cooking, as a mouth wash or a bug replant.
I really love incorporating this little ritual into my routines — You can a drop of peppermint + a drop of wild orange into your hands, rub them together, cup them over your face and take 5 deep breaths. This helps to bring clarity, it energises you and it can help you wake up in the morning. I did this little practice right before I started writing this blog post and I’m feeling great.
Revive sells their 10ml bottle of peppermint essential oil for $7.
We all know + love the sweet smell of beautiful lavender and universally, we tie the scent of lavender to feelings of calm, relaxation and rest. Lavender is fillllled to the brim with antibacterial, antioxidant, sedative and anti depressive properties. It is usually used therapeutically.
I personally use lavender many different ways. Lavender has so many beautiful properties that I mentioned above, so I like to use it as a sleep aid. I usually diffuse it right before I jump into bed, I have made a specialised sleep blend containing lavender, I love making sleep sprays, I love adding it to my heat packs or I sometimes just rub some on my chest with a carrier oil if I’m feeling a little anxious.
I love to do the morning ritual I do with the peppermint + wild orange but use lavender + wild orange before bed. The lavender brings a sense of calm and the wild orange clears my mind and stops my thoughts from racing before bed.

This sweet citrus is one of my favourites. I mean who doesn’t love the smell of orange? It reminds me of long, hot summer days spent by the beach with my family growing up. I love it!!!
While I have already given you guys a few ways to incorporate wild orange into your routines, there are still so many more uses for this beautiful oil.
I love, love, loveeeee to defuse wild orange. I think it is one of those oils that I always come back to because it compliments many other scents so well. One of my go-to blends is wild orange, cassia and lemon. It just makes everything feel so warm + welcoming. I also like to add a few drops of wild orange to my water. If you struggle to drink enough water throughout the day, this is a perfect little citrus pick-me-up. I also add it to all of my home-made cleaning products because it contains loads of antioxidants and purifies the air.
Revive sells their 10ml bottle of wild orange essential oil for $8.
