It seems essential oils are becoming more popular lately…unless it’s just my obsession that’s growing! Yup, that’s quite possible haha There are sooooo many uses for them and so many benefits!
Here are just a few:
Lavender – to relax, improve sleep, decrease stress and anxiety, promote concentration
Tea Tree – antibacterial, fights harmful organisms
Eucalyptus – antimicrobial, alleviates congestion, reduces headaches, relaxes muscles
Jojoba – heals wounds, improve skin appearance, reduces acne
Rosehip – corrects dark spots, hydrates dry skin, reduces scars and fine lines
Frankincense – anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, digestive, diuretic
Peppermint – alleviate headaches, nausea, indigestion
Grapefruit – supports metabolism and cellulite reduction
Sandalwood – natural aphrodisiac, improves energy
And then there are also really amazing blends out there that provide multiple benefits AND smell amazing, without irritating your nose like many perfumes and artificial smells do!
Keep in mind that some of the above benefits come from applying them topically, and some from having the smell dispersed into the air. I absolutely love my Saje diffuser and the tranquil/happy/energetic (basically whatever mood I need) atmosphere it creates in my home.
