Essential Oils: The Best Ones For Your Health
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils can be categorized as home aromatherapy essentials. They can transform any room into a fragrant paradise with just a few drops and a diffuser. While essential oils emit an amazing fragrance, they encompass the scents and essence of plants, giving them health benefits as well.
While oils have body and mind benefits, it is important to use them wisely considering they are concentrated, highly-potent chemical compounds. Essential oils is essentially what gives a plant its scent as well as protects them from hazardous environmental conditions.
Need time to unwind and ease your stress levels after a long day? Oils like peppermint or rosemary are great for mental focus, eucalyptus or cardamom for energy, and jasmine or bergamot for a mood boost. These iterations stimulate your smell receptors which then sends messages to your nervous system, helping relieve anxiety and stress.
May Help Fight Fungal Infections
Essential oils boost antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, and fungicidal properties. This forms a potent treatment for fungal infections on your skin. While anti-fungal essential oils can treat overgrowths it is important to use them with a carrier oil like coconut. If applying strong oils directly on your skin, you must dilute them first with a carrier oil. Frankincense is an oil that helps reduce the appearance of skin imperfections when applied topically. On top of this it also supports healthy cellular and nervous system function when ingested.
Can Aid Your Sleep
Some essential oils are sleep enhancers. Jasmine, ylang-ylang, lavender, chamomile, bergamot, clary sage, frankincense, and sandalwood are popular oils when aiding your sleep. Diffusing your scent of choice or mixing them into a carrier oil (and apply directly onto your skin) are two of the more relaxing methods.
Soothe The Body And Muscular Aches
Vetiver, peppermint, helichrysum, pine, and chamomile can decrease pain and inflammation. They also soothe tension, spasms, swelling, and soreness—and improve circulation and other health conditions, like alopecia. All in all, they simply help you feel better.
