Do you use essential oils to support your wellbeing or to fragrance your home?
Essential oils used to be mostly associated with spa days and professional aromatherapy treatments, but nowadays they’re a firm fixture in many home routines too. More and more of us are discovering the many benefits that essential oils can have on our wellbeing and home environment on a daily basis.
I started using essential oils for wellbeing and home fragrance a couple of years ago, and quickly became a convert. They’re so convenient and cost-effective, and if you use a quality brand you can avoid the nasty synthetic ingredients that you find in some candles and beauty products.
I’ve been trying out some essential oils from Nikura recently. Read on to find out more about their range and values.

I’ve been using the Essential Oil Blends Gift Set – let’s take a look at it in more detail.
Nikura essential oil blends gift set
The Nikura Essential Oil Blends Gift Set retails at £6.99 and contains five of their most popular essential oil blends. Citrus, floral, warming and earthy blends are all included.
Anti-Anxiety is a blend of bergamot, lavender and ylang ylang essential oils. As the name suggests, it’s good for moments of stress and can be used to support a return to calm.
Citrus Relief combines bitter orange, lime, grapefruit and cypress essential oils to deliver a zesty lift.
Relax and Unwind is a soothing blend of bergamot, lavender and lemongrass essential oils that will help create a peaceful vibe and relieve stress.

Four Thieves has cleansing and protective properties, and contains clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils.
You can use these essential oil blends in lots of different ways. For home fragrance they’re ideal for oil burners and diffusers, or you can add them to potpourri and use them in homemade candles. They’re also suitable for adding to your bath, mixing with an unscented body oil or lotion, and using in homemade soaps. You can even combine them with a carrier oil to create an aromatherapy massage.
My experience of using Nikura essential oil blends
I’m using these five essential oil blends in lots of different ways to support the family’s wellbeing.
The Citrus relief blend is perfect for when you want to focus your mind. I’ve been struggling to get back into the swing of work after the Christmas break, and using this blend in my office is definitely helping me to feel more alert and invigorated.
My eldest has GCSE’s this year, and the tension is already building. I’ve started to use the Anti-Anxiety blend in an oil burner in our living areas, to help dial down the stress and encourage positivity. The Relax and Unwind blend is another good option to help everyone switch off after a busy day. They both make the room smell great too.
There are lots of winter coughs and sniffles in our house at the moment, so the decongestant and cleansing properties of Four Thieves have been helping everyone feel more clear-headed. We’ve used it in an oil burner, and also added a few drops to the bath where the steam really boosts the effects.
The Sweet Dreams blend has a lovely scent, and is perfect for winding down at the end of the day. I’ve added a few drops to potpourri in my bedroom so it can deliver its benefits throughout the night.
I’m glad I’ve discovered the Nikura range of essential oils. I love their credentials, the blends we’ve tried are great quality, and the range caters for pretty much every wellness need. I’m also really impressed with the value for money. The oils are very reasonably priced, and a lot cheaper than many other essential oil brands. I’m looking forward to exploring the range more and adding to my Nikura collection.
