Benefits of Essential Oils + Useful Blends // Words by Anne Carty

A few months ago I had no idea what essentials oils were and I’m sure a lot of people have no clue what they are so I’ll give a little bit of an explanation. ​Am essential oil is a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic odor of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. I have been using essential oils for almost two months now and I love them. Essential oils have so many uses and benefits and I am going to tell you some of these today!

– Balance hormones

Essential oils such as lavender, clary sage and sandalwood are perfect for hormone imbalance.

– Relieve headaches and migraines

Peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary are some essential oils that can help relieve headaches and migraines.

– Boost immunity and fight colds and flus

Some of the best oils include bergamot, eucalyptus, frankincense and rosemary. Many other oils can help boost your immune system and fight against colds and flus.

– Promote restful sleep

Many oils have the effect of promoting restful sleep for example lavender, serenity, vetiver and cedarwood. Just to name a few in our product.
I have been using lavender and I am in love. Having a good sleep always was a problem with me but with rubbing lavender on my wrists, the soles of my feet and on my temples has definitely helped me sleep. Adding a few drops onto my pillow and inhaling deeply also helps with falling asleep. Lavender oil knocks me out in a matter of minutes.

– Support digestion

Use these five essential oils to improve your digestion: Peppermint, Fennel, Coriander, Cardamom and Ginger. These are the top five essential oils to help with your digestion.

– Reduce toxicity

A toxin refers to any substance that causes stress within the body. Lemon essential oil, peppermint and lavender are great detoxifying oils for you.
Lemon can cleanse your body along with your house. Isn’t that amazing?

– Boost energy levels

Lemon, Wild Orange, Peppermint and Cinnamon are some of the top essential oils to help boost your energy and get you going when you’re feeling in a slump​.
