Essential oils are natural & powerful aromatic compounds found in plants; extracted & distilled for a variety of health benefits. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells and represent their nature’s defence mechanism, while playing a role in plant pollination too. Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications, for food preparation and beauty treatments. They may be a very cost effective way to support your wellbeing in a natural way as they are very highly concentrated    (a drop of peppermint essential oil = 28 cups of peppermint tea) so just a few drops will be sufficient!

Essential oils can be use aromatically by putting a drop in your hands, rubbing them together and inhaling or using a diffuser. They can help to clean and purify the air or improve respiratory function.

 

They may also help to elevate our moods as they are quickly absorbed by the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system that is the part of the brain supporting functions such as smell, emotions, behavior, and memory.

For this reason, essential oils may enable us to gain access to stored, forgotten memories and suppressed emotions so that we can acknowledge, integrate and/or release them.

Essential oils can easily penetrate the skin so they can be used topically when trying to get the oils quickly into the blood stream or for direct application.

 

Some of the best places on the body to apply essential oils are the bottoms of the feet, spine, and back of neck.

 

Since they are so highly concentrated, it is always best to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil (such as coconut, almond, jojoba) to decrease the likelihood of developing a skin sensitivity.

Some essential oils can be used internally. Always check that  the bottle has a “Supplement Facts” box on the label before ingesting. If an oil does not have a supplement fact, it is better suited for aromatic and topical use. 

 

This method is great to use when dealing with digestive system, looking to support the immune system, and help aid the body in cleansing and detoxifying.
