Essential Oils for the Win!
What do you know about essential oils?
Perhaps you’re like me and you have purely used essential oils in the past for their freshening scents, but without knowing much about their properties and natural healing powers. But guess what? Their uses and benefits extend way beyond being a nose-pleasing scent. Chinese, Indian, Eyptian, Roman and many more cultures have, and still are, using oils for medicinal purposes.
Why am I so excited about this?
Because I am learning with you!
I have decided to team up with doTERRA, which is one of the best essential oil companies I have come across. I am enjoying my journey with so many oils, learning what to replace and what to combine to increase so many health benefits.
Essential oils are the compounds found in plants that we cannot see with the naked eye; they hide within the roots, flowers, seeds, bark, or other areas of the plant. They are highly concentrated, making them extremely potent. Also referred to as volatile aromatic compounds, essential oils give a plant its’ aroma, protect it from harsh environmental conditions and insects, and even play a part in plant pollination. Who knew?!
Essential oil use is not a fad, but rather a long-time tradition started centuries ago in civilizations all over the world. Used as beauty treatments, perfumes, promoting health, burial rituals, food preparation and much more, oils have been in use for hundreds of years.
In ancient times, people used essential oils and plant parts to improve their health and well-being. Because essential oils can be used to soothe occasional skin irritations, promote healthy digestion, support good oral health, create feelings of clear airways, and more, they have long since been a popular choice for those who want to maintain good health.
Essential oils offer a variety of benefits, and each individual experience essential oil use in their own way. Fortunately, the diversity of essential oils makes them a helpful way to maintain health, even for those who have specific health concerns, seek diverse health benefits, or experience sensitivity. Using essential oils for health benefits has become popular because it allows the user to tailor the experience to their specific wants and needs, rather than settling for a generic solution.
With unique chemical structures, each essential oil holds a variety of benefits for the user. Some essential oils hold soothing, toning, and grounding properties, while others are known as energizing, uplifting, warming, or renewing. As our bodies go through an array of emotions and physical states throughout a single day, essential oils can help us manage and maintain well-being.
The chemical design of an essential oil gives it specific benefits. Some essential oils are helpful for cleansing or purifying, while others provide a soothing sensation to the skin. The aroma of essential oils can also create a chemical reaction in the brain, eliciting emotions and internal responses.
Our sense of smell can produce powerful, mental, physiological, and emotional responses.
