Have you tried essential oils yet? It seems like they’re the next trendy health thing, and there’s a reason for that! If you’ve already discovered how magical they can be, well, you already know, so keep reading to learn more. If essential oils are still on your list of things to do, read this and then go get some. Some are meant to be diffused into the air, and others you can even apply to your skin. I am by no means an expert, so I won’t pass on this info, but you can do some research if you want to get into it. Here are the essential facts on essential oils (cute pun, right?) to get you interested:
1. Reduce inflammation
2. Heal skin irritations:
Yes, essential oils contain properties that can help with skin issues- including acne- and help heal cuts and bruises faster. Tea tree and lavender are especially good for skin problems.
Aromatherapy can be so helpful in helping you calm down and relax. Lavender is well known for this, and it smells so good, too! You can enjoy this with a diffuser, or put a few drops in your bath for a spa-like experience.
4. Reduce anxiety
5. Relieve depression:
Orange, jasmine, and vanilla oils are known to give you a lift by actually stimulating the happy hormones in your brain.
6. Improve focus:
Try rosemary oil for this.
7. Improve energy:
Peppermint, clove, and tea tree oils are the ones.
8. Boost your immune system:
Lemon, eucalyptus, oregano, and peppermint can help. If you have a cold, eucalyptus oil can help relieve congestion.
9. Pain relief:
Try lavender and rosemary. To get rid of a headache you can put a drop of peppermint oil on your temples.
10. Natural air freshener:
Commercial air fresheners are made from chemicals and artificial scents. Use your favorite essential oils as natural air fresheners and get the mood benefits at the same time!
