Wellness with Essential Oils

Essential oils are often used in aromatherapy, that employs plant extracts to support health and well-being.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants.

The oils capture the plant’s scent and flavor, or “essence.”

Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

What are the Benefits of Essential Oils?

Essential oils are more popular than ever and for good reason! These freely available plant medicines are one of the quickest, and most effective ways to trigger emotional, mental and physical responses within your body.

They also smell amazing. It is common knowledge that essential oils have been used for centuries for their medicinal, spiritual, and uplifting properties. Our ancestors understood that mother nature provided us with everything we need to prosper including an extensive range of powerful plant extracts, each with their own unique organic chemistry, scent and healing properties.

Each and every essential oil contains compounds with unique healing and therapeutic benefits.

How are Essential Oils used?

The way the oils are made is important, as essential oils obtained through chemical processes are not considered true essential oils.

Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or steam) mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.

Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that’s ready for use. Essential oils can be applied to the skin with massage oils, bath and skin care . Massaging the area where the oil is to be applied can boost circulation and increase absorption. 

Essential oils can be inhaled. Inhalation: the oils evaporate into the air using a diffuser container, spray, or oil droplets, or breathed in, for example, in a steam bath.

A few drops of essential oils mixed with water can be added to a diffuser providing a natural scent.

I like to use Everyday Oils Kit from Young Living. It is ideal for making oils an essential part your day, every day. It has the following oils. There are Ten 5-ml bottles: Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia), PanAway, Purification, Thieves, Stress Away, Joy.

If you are new to Essential oils…

Do a patch test prior to using to check for allergic reactions.

Consult with a doctor to be sure the essential oil you’re considering does not interact with medications you’re taking.

Store oils safely to keep out of reach of children and pets.
