5 Must Have Essential Oils for Your Handbag

In a person’s day-to-day life really anything can happen. I had a call from the school a couple of weeks ago and they said my daughter fell over on the ground and might need stitches. I didn’t really have time to think and just went and picked her up. In this type of situation, I could have really done with at least one essential oil in my handbag but they were all in my Kinesiology bag for my practice. There was one product in my handbag which did help a lot, I will mention this one at the end as it has been a lifesaver multiple times…but I wish I had more. Therefore, below is my list of 5 Must Have Essential Oils for your Handbag.


5 Must Have Essential Oils for your Handbag

Essential oils for your handbag chapters

1. Peppermint Essential Oil

I have written a lot about Peppermint Essential Oil as it’s close to being my favourite. This awesome essential oil really needs to be top of the list in your handbag. Peppermint is a non-toxic essential oil that can be used for many purposes. It can help with headaches and nausea, therefore if you are at work or doing the shopping if you feel a headache coming on or feel sick, Peppermint essential oil can help. If you are feeling stressed or anxious this is another way that Peppermint can help.

To use Peppermint oil, drop some on a tissue or your wrist if it is 100% pure essential oil. If you find this oil too strong you can dilate it with a carrier oil like coconut oil. Even better if there is a diffuser around at work or in your office add some Peppermint Oil and take some deep breathes. This versatile oil has also been found to improve mood and increase alertness, so if you are feeling down or sleepy at work reach for the Peppermint.

2. Lavender Essential Oil

This oil is great for relaxation, sleep, and reducing stress levels. It is also known for its ability to relieve headaches, insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Lavender essential oil can be used in various ways to help with these health problems. It has a calming scent that is perfect for any situation where you need to feel at ease..I spray this on my kids pillows at night and I use this oil on my wrists and neck in the evening before bed. It makes me feel really at ease and I can drift off to sleep easily. I also use it if I'm feeling a little anxious or restless, as well as when I have my period. If you're needing a way to relax through busy days keep a sample of lavender in your bag , this could be the perfect oil for you.

3. Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil

If you're looking for relief from colds or allergies during allergy season, this oil is what you need! In addition to helping to break up congestion with its potent antibacterial properties, lemon eucalyptus is also a natural expectorant ie used to treat coughs. Lemon eucalyptus oil is a natural insect repellent. It has been found to be effective against mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting insects. You never know when there are annoying insects, especially mosquitoes around…

4. Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea Tree essential oil is an oil that helps fight infections and may provide relief from acne and pimples. It has a strong, medicinal-like aroma, so it's great for anyone with sensitive skin. I used to use this oil to help control the growth of pimples on my face and if you have kids you can use it with them (just skin test first and ensure it is 100% pure). It's also good for fighting off infections and can be used as a mouthwash, although I would dilute first. Tea Tree essential oil is another oil which can be helpful in treating anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, ADHD, ADD and other neurological disorders. If you or your children are prone to any of these conditions this oil would be great to add to your handbag.

5. doTERRA Balance

The 5th essential oil I would have on my handbag list is a doTERRA blend called doTERRA Balance or doTERRA Balance Touch. One is the blend of essential oil and one is mixed with coconut oil and is a roll-on. This awesome blend has a mix of Ho Wood Leaf, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus. The purpose of this blend of essential oil is to help by calming the body and mind. If you are stressed at work or in the car or just happen to be in a stressful situation this blend is for you. This could also be great for your kids or friends who may need that extra help to calm down. doTERRA Balance can also help you refocus and recentre your mind. If you are trying to get to a deadline or need to learn something complex, frankincense in the blend it can help you focus.


Essential oils are a great way to keep your mind and body healthy. They have a variety of benefits and can be used in your everyday life. The best thing about essential oils is that they are natural and can help you in many situations in day-to-day life. Just looking back to my daughter’s stitches the product that saves me time and time again is Bach Kids Rescue Remedy. Between Rescue Remedy and the above essential oils, I think you are covered for any situation you come across throughout the day. But I hear you…my handbag is only so big….just letting you know we do have these key chains that allow you to carry up to 8 different essential oils.
