Essential oils have been around for centuries, but it’s only in recent years that they’ve become so popular. As people are becoming more mindful of their health and overall well-being, these little bottles of liquid gold have become commonplace in many households.
But what do essential oils really do? Let’s take a closer look at these powerful liquid extracts and see what they can do for you!
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts produced through steam distillation or cold pressing. They contain the essence of the plant from which they were taken – it's “essence” if you will – hence the name “essential oil.”
The essential oil molecules carry with them natural healing properties as well as a unique fragrance.
Depending on the type of plant from which it was extracted, the essential oil may provide multiple benefits such as calming scents to help you relax, antiseptic properties to help clean wounds and disinfect surfaces, or even analgesic properties to help reduce pain.
The Benefits of Essential Oils
There are countless benefits to using essential oils. When used properly, these natural remedies can offer relief from a wide range of physical and mental conditions such as headaches, stress, nausea, depression, insomnia, and more.
Some common uses for essential oils include aromatherapy (a method that uses scented plants or oils to calm or invigorate your senses), massage therapy (whereby essential oils are added to massage creams or lotions), cleansing (whereby essential oils can be used to cleanse your skin), meditation (which can be enhanced with calming fragrances like lavender oil) and even skincare (whereby some essential oils have been found to help treat acne).
How To Use Essential Oils
When it comes to using essential oils safely and effectively, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
First, always make sure you dilute the oil before applying it directly to your skin; some people find this step unnecessary, but it is important to avoid potential skin irritation.
Secondly, never ingest an essential oil unless otherwise directed by your doctor; although many claim that certain types of them can be taken internally for various health benefits this has yet to be definitively proven in scientific studies.
Finally – and most importantly - use caution when diffusing them into a room; too much scent can irritate both eyes and lungs so start off with a small amount first then add more if needed.
The power of nature is amazing!
From improving sleep quality to reducing anxiety levels – there really is something special about essential oils that makes them alluring yet mysterious at the same time.
So why not give them a try? With just one tiny bottle of liquid gold, you could find yourself on your way toward greater physical and mental well-being! Not bad for something that fits right into the palm of your hand!
