  • The Benefits of Essential Oils

    For thousands of years, people have used essential oils to enhance health and well-being in a variety of ways, from dietary and cosmetic purposes to more spiritual or religious applications. For modern users, pure essential oils can provide tons of valuable health benefits, with different oils recommended for different symptoms and conditions.


    1. Bergamot

    Citrus-fresh bergamot oil offers a powerfully sweet aroma and has a number of medicinal uses, thanks to its properties as a deodorant, antibiotic, antiseptic, sedative, antidepressant, disinfectant, and digestive aid.


    1. Rose Geranium

    This oil features a beautiful fragrance that combines rose and citrus, and provides a balancing effect on both the body and the mind. It can be used to treat acne, reduce inflammation, calm anxiety, and relieve fatigue.


    1. Rose Absolute

    Women who suffer from painful menstrual periods can feel relief with the use of rose absolute oil, a calming, uplifting oil with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It is also great for soothing tired or cramped muscles.


    1. Patchouli

    Patchouli has a strong, woodsy scent, and makes a great insect repellent- but also has a number of properties that make it a useful essential oil for treating a number of conditions. This oil can be used as an antidepressant, diuretic, astringent, antiseptic, sedative, and even an aphrodisiac.


    1. Oregano

    This powerful antimicrobial is great to help stimulate the immune system and help the body fight off infections. Oregano oil can treat fungal and parasitic infections, as well as helps to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with colds and sinus infections.


    1. Neroli

    Neroli is a great treatment for cuts and wounds, and can help kill the bacteria that can lead to typhoid, cholera, and food poisoning, thanks to this oil’s many health-promoting properties. It can act as a disinfectant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antidepressant, and even a sedative.


    1. Marjoram

    This spicy-scented oil has proven useful in treating sleep, mood, stress, hyperactivity, and anxiety issues. Marjoram is a natural analgesic, antiseptic, antibacterial, carminative, diuretic, expectorant, and vasodilator, and is therapeutic solution to heartburn, nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, and muscle tensions.


    1. Juniper berry

    Juniper berry oil can help improve blood circulation, helping the body with the detoxification process, and can offer relief from a number of skin and hair problems. This oil has anti-rheumatic, carminative, antiseptic, depurative, and astringent properties, and can even help alleviate emotional and mental issues like anxiety and mental fatigue.


    1. Jasmine

    The seductive quality of jasmine oil makes it an ideal aphrodisiac, but it can also help rejuvenate skin, treat spasms, promote relaxation, relieve menstrual problems and labour pains, and even works as an antiseptic that can be used to prevent infections.


    1. Grapefruit

    This essential oil is a popular detoxification agent, thanks to the way it stimulates the lymphatic system. It can help cleanse the body of toxins, remove excess fluids, and even burn fat. Grapefruit oil is great for treating acne and preventing oily skin or hair. It can be used as an air freshener, deodorizer, and even as an appetite suppressant.


    1. Frankincense

    One of the most popular essential oils, frankincense promotes healthy cell regeneration and keeps existing tissues and cells strong and healthy. It can be used to strengthen gums and hair roots, control hemorrhaging, and speed the healing of acne, insect bites, and cuts and scrapes. The oil’s sedative properties help generate a sensation of peace and relaxation.


    1. Clary sage

    This oil is frequently used for problems related to eye health, but clary sage oil does have a number of other uses. It can help stimulate hair growth and regulate oil production in the hair and skin, reduce blood pressure, relieve headaches and muscle stiffness, and ease the discomfort of menstruation.


    1. Roman chamomile

    This herb was first used by ancient Egyptians to cure fevers, and the cooling effect of chamomile makes it perfect for soothing burns and sunburns – as well as helping relieve the pain of headaches and migraines, treating tonsillitis and dental abscesses, and alleviating allergy symptoms.


    1. Sandalwood

    Sandalwood offers a ton of fantastic health benefits, due to its ability to act as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, deodorant, expectorant, emollient, and even a memory booster. It is especially used for skin-care treatments on rashes, scar tissue, acne, and psoriasis.

If you hope to use these oils to treat serious conditions and symptoms, talk to your health care professional first to make sure there are no interactions with other medications.
