The Benefits Of Essential Oils

Posted on June 29, 2016 by Chad Pegura | 4 comments

Essential oils are something that has been used for many, many years over various cultures throughout the world, and are something which is easily added to any home for one benefit or another. While candles smell nice and come in a variety of scents, essential oils go one better – they not only make your home smell wonderful, but they have the power to make you feel better, too. To show you what we mean, we’ve decided to put together a few of the universal benefits of the essential oils we offer to give you an idea of what they can do for you.

What Are The Benefits of Essential Oils?

First, I’ll go over a bit about what essential oils actually are. Essentially, these oils are highly-concentrated, non-water soluble phytochemicals (biologically active compounds found in plants) which are distilled from the different parts of various plants. These essential oils can be distilled from leaves, flowers, and roots, as well as other parts of the plants, and can be quite potent, so with these guys, less is definitely more.

Lavender

Lavender essential oil can be used in baths, as a massage oil, or even placed on your pillow to help you relax or sleep soundly, and is one essential oil which is gentle enough that it can be used undiluted. It also has anti-bacterial properties which allow it to fight germs, and can also aid in digestion.

Tea Tree

Tea Tree essential oil makes a powerful antiseptic, and can be used in moderation on the face, neck, and other areas to fight acne, cold sores, and other skin ailments. It’s good for calming injuries from burns, and can also be used to control germs and bacteria.

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus essential oil can be used as both an air cleanser as well as an antiseptic, and this essential oil works wonders when added to a bath. It’s great for assisting with the relief of respiratory issues due to coughs and colds, relieves muscle pain, and is great for a relaxation aid as well.

Rosemary

If you’re someone who often feels lacking in the energy department, rosemary essential oil may be able to help. It’s great for energizing you during the daytime, and is also great for relieving muscle aches and mental fatigue.

I was recently introduced too essential oils and was a skeptic at first about the over all benefits. Truth is that they speak for themselves and I have gone from being a skeptic to loving essential oils and always looking for new blends and using essential oils whenever possible. I went from never using them to using them on a day to day basis.

I have been using essential oils for years for skin care and the last year I started using them for aromatherapy, WOW I can’t believe I have waited so long. No more candles and toxic fumes for me and my family. I love how you give examples of different EO’s and how you can use them to your advantage in aromatherapy, bathing and skincare. Thank you for the awesome information!

I started using essential oils and aromatherapy earlier this year. I rub oil on my hubby’s legs and feet at night to stop restless leg and it truly helps.
