Since writing my post last month on oil diffusing, I’ve really become quite obsessed with essential oils. Then again, it’s not only me, my boyfriend is pretty impressed too; he lights the tea light in our oil burner or turns our diffuser on more often than I do. I think we will both freely admit that we’re fans.

When Buff & Butter contacted me and asked if I’d like to pick some essential oils to try out, I didn’t need much persuading. I did however have a pretty tough time deciding on the oils. I’m an indecisive person so it took me a while to make my choice, but I finally decided on citrus and floral scents, as I’m always drawn towards them.

The Buff & Butter site has so much information on the oils, how to use them and what scents they blend well with to make your own signature fragrance. The oils are so versatile and can be used as skincare, perfume, to help mood and fatigue, to boost the immune system, added to the bath, amongst many other things. I think I know now why my Nan was such a lover of essential oil.

The Buff & Butter’s Essential Oils I got are:
Grapefruit | £1.85 | 
Orange Oil Sweet | £1.52 |
Ylang Ylang III | £2.85 |
Mandarin | £1.95 |
Patchouli | £2.95 |

I’ve been using Mandarin on my t-zone as it is said to help with oily skin; I’ve only been using it for a week so can’t tell you whether it’s helping or not yet, but I will certainly update.

Have you tried essential oils? If so, leave me your favourites in the comments.
