Essential Oils 101 - The basics

Chances are you use or know someone using essential oils in their daily lives. Have you ever wondered how to use them, why you should, and where the use of essential oils all began? Take a journey with me into the fascinating world of aromatherapy...

Aromatherapy or the practice of treatment with scent has been in existence throughout the ages. Egyptians were pioneers in the use of essential oils. They are believed to have used essential oils in their cosmetics, daily baths, in massages, and to fumigate sick rooms. 

The bible references the use of various plants, herbs, perfumes, anointing and holy oils, 231 times. We all know the wise men came bearing gifts of frankincense and myrrh for the Messiah, Jesus. Why? Because essential oils were of great worth.

Aromatherapy became popular in the United States in the 1980s. Valuable plant extracts were added to skincare, candles, and makeup for their aromatic benefits. Today there are trained professionals --aromatherapists, physical therapists, and natural medicine doctors -- using aromatherapy to promote healing for a range of ailments.

Essential Oils can enter the human body through skin absorption and inhalation. The quickest and most effective method of using essential oils for emotional issues is through inhalation. 

It is always best to use essential oils topically, mixed with a carrier oil. We love fractionated coconut oil, meadowfoam seed oil, and hemp seed oil.

There are literally hundreds of essential oils with their own unique qualities and benefits. Some of our favorites are:

        • Rose: As one of the most valuable essential oils in the world, rose oil is great for reducing skin inflammation and as a facial moisturizer (blended properly of course).
        • Frankincense: Works to build up the immune system and reduce inflammation. Useful to treat many skin conditions.
        • Tea Tree: Works to stimulate the immune system. Also renowned as an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal oil.
        • Myrrh: Can help prevent infections and promotes beautiful skin while minimizing stretch marks. Myrrh is also a natural antiseptic.
        • Ginger: Relieves nausea and improves digestion while supporting the health of your joints.
        • Eucalyptus: Improves respiratory issues, especially sinus infections and colds. Also used as a natural way to wake up your mind when you’re tired.
        • Lavender: Great for healing wounds, calming nerves, insomnia and improving moods. A natural choice for adding to personal care products.
        • Chamomile: good for the treatment of nervous conditions and insomnia. It's anti-bacterial and antiseptic and is valued for its anti-inflammatory properties.
        • Grapefruit: improves digestion, promotes energy and enhances mood.

Which are your favorite Essential Oils? Which do you use regularly?
