WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils were mankinds first medicine. These oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants, including their respective parts such as seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruits etc. from the regeneration, oxygenation and immune defense properties of plants. Essential oils are so small in molecular size which means they can penetrate the skin quickly and easily, providing emotional and health benefits for a wide range of issues.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS USED FOR?
One of the most common ways of using essential oils is in aromatherapy. This is a form of therapy that uses the oils to have a positive effect on the mind and body – and is experienced through your sense of smell. There are two reasons for this: first, scent is linked to the deepest parts of the brain including your thoughts and emotions, and secondly, essential oils are often thought to help ease physical aches, pains and other ailments.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS (pt 1)
Topically – Essential oils can be applied directly on your skin, either neat (without diluting) or diluted in a carrier oil.
Internally – Certain high-quality essential oils are safe for internal use.
Aromatically – Diffusing essential oils in the air is a great way to get the benefits of essential oils.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS (pt 2)
Essential oils enter the body in three main ways – by being applied to the skin, inhaled or ingested. This application method is very much dependent on what you want, as well as the type of essential oil you are using, as some for example, can only be taken in certain ways. Some people use essential oils in aromatherapy massages, others in their bath water and many through the likes of candles and diffusers.
ARE ESSENTIAL OILS BENEFICIAL?
There are many types of essential oils, extracted from various natural elements, and each have their own properties. They have been being used to treat illness and promote wellbeing for many years, but are now gaining in popularity thanks to scientific confirmation of their benefits to health, both mental and physical. Once the aroma is in the air, essential oil fragrances can promote mental wellbeing and uplifted moods among other things. Not only this, but essential oil can also help to purify the air, leading to fresher, soothing breathing for those in the same room.
