Reasons Why You Should Use Essential Oils!

If you’re not constantly looking for ways to pamper yourself, at the risk of sounding a little on the bossy side, you definitely should! With all of the demands that life brings combined with all that you do for others, you deserve to set aside a little time (and money) to make yourself feel special. One way to do that? Invest in some essential oils.

Out of all of the things we could’ve recommended, you might be surprised that this is what came to mind, but there are three solid reasons why we stand firm on our recommendation.

Essential Oils Are Scientifically-Proven to Be Therapeutic

In order to provide you with all of the health benefits that come from using essential oils, we’d literally have to create an e-book (if not a series of ‘em). For the sake of time and space, we’ll share 15 ways that they are scientifically-proven to benefit your mind, body and spirit.

Essential Oils:

  • Balance Hormones

  • Elevate Moods

  • Improve Sleep Quality

  • Strengthen Immunity

  • Fight Infection

  • Promote Oral Health

  • Slow the Aging Process

  • Relieve Headaches and Migraines

  • Are a Great Hygiene Alternative (deodorant, toothpaste, bath salts, etc.)

  • Improve Brain Function

  • Heal Wounds

  • Even Skin Tone

  • Ease Pain

  • Thicken (and Lengthen) Hair

  • Reduce Stress

Whew! And that’s just the beginning! Every single benefit that we shared, if you Googled it and added “essential oils”, you’d see tons of links on how oils can help you in these areas—and  more.

That’s not all, though.

Essential Oils Are Healthy and Safe

Whether you choose to apply essential oil directly onto your skin (depending on what oil it is, you may want to apply it to a carrier oil like almond oil, avocado oil or olive oil because ones like tea tree oil, clove oil and peppermint oil can be quite potent), put the oil into a diffuser so that you can take advantage of its aromatherapy advantages or combine the oils together to make your own at-home remedy, essential oils come from nature, so they are health and safe.

Just make sure that you get them in their purest form (look for brands that say “100 percent oil” on the packaging); that way, you don’t have to worry about artificial colors or chemicals being in the oils (which is something that can’t be said about most commercial brand items!).

 

Essential Oils Can Be Used for Countless Purposes

Another awesome thing to note is that essential oils can be used for all kinds of purposes. While eucalyptus oil is the perfect foot soak, the combination of frankincense and myrrh oils can strengthen your nails’ cuticles.

Chamomile oil can soothe sunburned skin, if you prefer to use something else, try out aloe vera for your sunburn! A combination of wintergreen, cypress and lemongrass oils can relieve arthritis. Bergamot oil can help you to concentrate better. Peppermint and cinnamon essential oils can curb your food cravings—and again, this is just the tip of the iceberg of what essential oils can do for you!
