Essential oils can be an important part of a well-rounded wellness lifestyle. Here are a few of the ways they can benefit you and your family as you pursue health and wholeness.
What Essential Oils Are
Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts. The oils capture the plant's scent and flavor, or "essence." They differ from other oils in that they are volatile––meaning they evaporate quickly. Essential oils can be extracted from leafs, stems, bark, roots, or seeds of certain plants.
How to Use Essential Oils
You can use essential oils in several ways to enjoy their benefits. Aromatherapy is the most common––a good diffuser can fill a room with the aroma of your oils. They can be used topically on the skin when diluted appropriately with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or olive oil. Other oils, such as citrus oils or certain oil blends, can be used in the household for cleaning uses as natural alternatives to harsh chemicals.
What Essential Oils Do
Essential oils can positively affect both your physical wellness and emotional wellness, as well as provide other targeted benefits for your body and home.
Many oils have antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. For example, organic tea tree essential oil combines an earthy aroma with antiviral and antifungal properties. Other essential oil blends, such as Sonia's Shield Immunity Blend, are specifically designed to boost the immune system as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Essential oils also have emotional benefits to help your mindfulness practices and increase focus. Organic lavender essential oil is known for it's stress-relieving effects, and Tracy's Grace Calming Blend is perfect for easing the mind and reducing tension.
Other essential oils provide unique, specific benefits. For example, organic lemon essential oil is great for DIY cleaning products for the kitchen or bathroom, and organic rosemary essential oil is known for its positive impact on hair growth.
