The power of essential oils

Everybody knows essential oils. They are a liquid secreted by plants through their seeds, flowers, leaves, and resins. Those little glass jars are famous for their pleasant scent and very utilized in spas for massages and aromatherapy. But, could there be any other use for them besides that? The answer is a big yes.

Fortunately, essential oils are more than just a pleasant smell. They are powerful and helpful against several problems our body or mind might be facing. For example, did you know there is an essential oil that helps treat headaches? In fact, there is not only one, but a few of them. Lavender, for instance, is one to mention. This is a good option for relaxation, stress relief and the management of migraines. Another great one is peppermint. This is because of the active ingredient it contains, which is menthol. There is evidence that menthol gives good results when treating headaches if applied as a gel to the head. Obviously, essential oils should not be a replacement for medicines, but they are a good alternative tool that supports different types of treatments, like anxiety, stress, migraines, skin conditions, and so forth. Let's take a closer look at some of them:

Lavender

Lavender is one of my favorite ones. It is a good option for having a good night of sleep, for relaxation, stress relief, management of headaches and depression.

Rosemary

It contains anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties. It is also a good option against headaches and poor blood circulation.

Basil

It fights infection as it is anti-bacterial. It is also a good expectorant and relieves the pain caused by sore muscles and joints.

Bergamot

It has a very calming aroma. Bergamot combats acne and promotes clear and bright skin, as it improves blood circulation.

Eucalyptus

Anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and disinfectant. it is great for purifying ambiances and for cleansing. It opens airways and it helps to breathe.

Tea Tree - Aka as Melaleuca

Wound healing, acne-fighting and boosts the immunity system. It is also a good insect repellent. Tea tree is also known for being a super anti-fungal.

Lemon

A great detox. Anti-fungal, astringent, fights infection and a calming essence, also very good against stress.

Ylang-Ylang

This is a good one for women, as it helps balances the hormones. Ylang-ylang promotes healthy hair and skin, immunity and mood booster and helps heal emotional trauma.

 

How to use them:

 

Diffuser

This is the most common use of essential oils. Diffusers use heat and water to extract the healing benefits of the essential oils. Just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil in a reservoir with water and heat it up. The healing effects of inhalation are worth it. Just remember to keep your diffuser clean and don't use synthetic oils, as you inhale them.

 

On the skin

Don't ever apply an essential oil directly on the skin. Always mix it with a carrier oil or lotion. Some examples of carrier oil can be almond oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and apricot oil.

Almond oil is rich in vitamins and fatty acids. It has a smooth consistency that makes it easy to spread on the skin and it is generally accepted by different types of skin, besides being affordable and easy to find.

Coconut oil is a good option too, but remember it becomes solid under 23 degrees Celcius and liquid above that. So a good replacement is fractionated coconut oil instead, which keeps in a liquid state, as it has the fatty acids removed.

Olive oil is super easy to find and generally tolerated by different types of skin.

Apricot oil is great for kids and young adults, usually the ones with sensitive skin.

 

Essential Oil Basic Safety Guide

Essential oils have a super healing effect and are great for treatment many things. However, there are some safety guidelines that should be respected when dealing with them:

1. Do not use essential oils if you are pregnant, nursing or preparing to be pregnant. If you really want to, make sure to consult your doctor prior use.

2. Never apply undiluted essential oils directly on the skin.

3. Avoid UVA exposure when you apply an essential oil mixture on the skin for 24h.

4. Make sure to test if you have an allergic reaction to essential oils. Apply 1-2 drops of diluted essential oil on your back or forearm and cover it with a bandage, keeping it dry. If you feel an allergic reaction sensitivity or skin irritation, immediately remove the bandage and wash it with water and soap. If you don't feel anything in 48h, the oil should be safe to use.

 

Good healing.
