Essential Oils for Good Health

Tuesday, November 3, 2020 Yoga training
Essential oils are made from powerful plants and have best parts of them in there, like their leaves, rinds, herbs, and barks. Manufacturers use different ways to turn them into oils. They are mostly found in lotions or bath gels for topical use. If you know how to use them properly, they not only have calming effects as aromatherapy, but health benefits as well. Always check the label and ask your doctor if you’re not sure if they’re OK for you to use.

The safest ways to use essential oils include:

 Necklaces, bracelets or keychains made for essential oils allow you to smell them throughout the day to create either calm or energy.

Body oil: Essential oils mixed with other oils such as olive, jojoba or coconut oil can be massaged into skin. Because essential oils are so concentrated, they can cause irritation. Avoid using them full-strength on skin.

Aroma stick: These have an absorbent wick that soaks up essential oil. They come with a cover and are meant to be inhaled.

There are more than 90 types of essential oils, each with its own unique smell and potential health benefits.

Here’s a list of 10 popular essential oils and the health claims associated with them: 
Tea Tree: helps fight infections and boosts immunityPeppermint: boosts energy and helps with digestion
Lavender: relieves stress
Lemon: aids with digestion, mood, headaches, and more  
Sandalwood: calm nerves and helps with concentration
Ylang-Ylang: treats headaches, nausea, and skin conditions
Bergamot: reduces stress and improves skin conditions like eczema
Rose: improves mood and reduces anxiety
