What are some of your favorite oils to use and what do you use them for? I love sandalwood. I rub a drop on my forehead. It makes me feel more balanced and creative. I also like to use peppermint in the morning. I rub a few drops in my hands and then cover my face with them and take a few deep breaths. It always helps me feel alerts and motivated. I also like to put a few drops of neroli in the bathtub. It's great to help me relax.
