Essential Oils + Their Benefits

Hello lovelies! I have for you something a bit different today – it isn’t a review, however it is very relevant to the last review I did regarding Bali Botanic. Before I got into Essential Oils, I did a lot of research on them, figuring out what oils were best for your health/skin issues and more…of course that helped me out a bit, but there were (and still are) a lot of questions I had. As you know, we never stop learning and EO’s never cease to amaze me with their medicinal and therapeutic powers.

Essential oils are volatile liquids distilled from plants and organic matter like seeds, flowers, fruit, stems, bark, roots, and leaves. They can be used to heal and support your body’s emotional and physical well-being, typically entering the body in three ways. Application to the skin using a compress, a spray, a bath, or massage; they can be inhaled using a diffuser, dry evaporation, steam, or a spray; and they can be ingested either orally or by suppository. (Please take caution and note that the ingestion of essential oils is only recommended under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider.)

Each different type of essential oil offers its own benefits, and each will help heal ailments that affect different parts of the body. For example, cypress, rosemary, chamomile, peppermint, juniper, and fennel are said to benefit the liver, while lemongrass, oregano, and lavender oils are beneficial to throat health. Jasmine reduces inflammation and spasms and relieves phlegm and coughs, while the juniper berry fights infection, treats arthritis, improves stomach health, and promotes wound healing.

Whether you’re using essential oils topically, inhaled, or ingested, all you need is just a few drops of one of these EO’s and they can help balance your mind, uplift your spirits, relieve pain, and much more.

 

What I am sharing with you below is something I wish I had back when I was researching. This graphic is a layout of various essential oils and how they can be used to better your health and well being. For example, if someone faces liver problems many of their ailments can be helped using essential oils such as: cypress, rosemary, chamomile, peppermint, juniper, and fennel. So take a gander at this awesome graphic (provided by fix.com) and explore the wonderful world of EO’s! :)
