10 essential oil uses we bet you’ve never tried
1. Ever wanted easy access to the fresh, clean aroma of essential oils while adventuring? Never fear! To keep scents close while on the go, put a drop on the inside of your mask. Our favorites include Spearmint, Lime, or Valor®!

3. While your faithful canine is always willing to explore with you, their smell can become too dog-gone overwhelming! Try some of these essential oil-infused tips to get rid of dog smell next time you adventure together.
4. Whether you’ve had a long day treasure hunting (i.e., running errands) or just need some after-work pampering, try some citrus in your nightly wind-down. Apply Orange* to oily areas on the skin like your T-zone for some post-expedition skin care.

8. While you’re out and about, keep things fresh at home with a drop of Eucalyptus Radiata on the cardboard of your toilet paper roll. Simply spin for a clean scent!
