An awkward date, ’80s shoulder pads, polishing off that last slice of pizza when you were already full—we’ve all experienced moments of regret.

We’re lookin’ at you, legwarmers.

Fortunately, there’s one decision that continually delights us: choosing essential oils that tackle all sorts of challenges. We never regret adding EOs to our arsenal!

What are the most important essential oils to have?

You might as well ask us which essential oil has the coolest superpower or which one is the most luxurious. Choosing the most important oils is like choosing your favorite child—the answer varies depending on the day.

While it’s difficult to say which are the most important essential oils to have, we can give you a list of oils that are so versatile they’re guaranteed to outlive the trendy things we can’t seem to give up. Stock up on these average, everyday EO rock stars and you’ll love them long after your obsession with high-waisted pants has faded.

1.      Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil

Why you need it: It’s refreshing, it’s exhilarating, and it’s cleansing! Luxury spas and dedicated yogis swear by Eucalyptus Globulus, an earthy oil with a soothing, comforting aroma. Originating in China, Eucalyptus Globulus is one of three varieties of eucalyptus essential oil Young Living carries.

How to use it:

  • Quick pick-me-up: Combine 3 drops of Eucalyptus Globulus with 3 drops of V-6™ and rub onto your chest and neck to invigorate the senses and the soul.
  • Travel buddy: Put 3-5 drops on a cotton ball and stash in the corner of your hotel room to freshen the air.
  • Soothing at-home spa: Add a few drops around the rim of your bathtub and breathe deeply as you destress from the day.
