Ever feel like you’ve been working with oils so long that you wish you could go back in time and experience the thrill of discovering them all over again? While we don’t have an essential oil-powered time machine, you can feel that first-time excitement with Ocotea!

Ocotea essential oil truly stands the test of time. It was used traditionally during ancient rituals for cleansing the body and soul.  What is Ocotea essential oil used for today? Check out our timeless suggestions for how to use Ocotea below.

Quiet time

It’s time for meditation! Diffusing is the simplest way to incorporate new essential oils into your life, and Ocotea’s cinnamon-like scent is warm and cozy—a perfect travel companion to take to Meditation Station.

Simply follow the instructions on your diffuser, start a relaxing playlist, and focus on breathing in Ocotea’s calming scent as you wind down.

YL tip: Don’t have a diffuser nearby? Place a few drops on your palms and inhale deeply to get the same aroma anywhere you are.

Skin and hair

While we can’t turn back the clock, glowing skin and shiny hair are a fabulous way to create a youthful glow! Ocotea essential oil supports skin and hair, so it’s handy to infuse into your beauty routine.

Test out the oil first to make sure it’s comfortable on your skin, then add Ocotea to skin care products like a favorite moisturizer or lotion. Boost a scalp massage by rubbing a few drops onto your scalp to help your healthy, shiny hair feel fresher than ever.
