Essential oils are so trending right now, probably every organic store and even the local shops keep it for sale. The recent rise in the sales of essential oils is because Aromatherapy has made a huge comeback. Aromatherapy’s origin is dated back to 6000 years ago. It is the use of different scents diffused in the surrounding environment for meditation, revival of senses, and to bring about positivity. It is not expensive and is a good way to clear your aura.
Essential oils are fat soluble, therefore they are immediately absorbed by the skin. A popular way to enjoy your essential oils is to simply apply them to your skin for absorption. However, ensure that you mix these essential oils to some carrier oil first to dilute it. Carrier oils like coconut oil, almond oil can be used for this purpose.
You may opt to simply just inhale your essential oils. Open the bottle of essential oils, hold it up against your nose at a distance or place a few drops on a tissue, and take a deep breath to inhale the scent. When using a new essential oil for the first time, only use one drop to make sure you don’t have a reaction or sensitivity to the oil. Strong and potent oils can cause sneezing in some people.
Boil half a litre of water, pour it into a bowl and add a few drops of essential oils. Stand facing the surface of the mixture, cover your head and the bowl with a towel, and slowly inhale the steam. Using either energizing or relaxing essential oils can make this method useful at any time. Using some oils, you could actually cure coughs, colds and congestion. But if you notice any discomfort, stop immediately.
Electronic diffusers are designed in a way that they disperse a super fine mist of essential oils. They will gently fill the air with the aroma and healing benefits of the essential oil of your preference within minutes. Put a few drops of essential oils in your diffuser, turn it on, and let the diffuser circulate the oil into your room.
Add essential oils to your bath and take a long relaxing break after a tiresome day. Simple Epsom salts could work as the base for your essential oils. If you just drop the oils into the water, they will not dissolve as nicely as they do when first mixed into the salts. However, don’t combine any other chemically produced soaps or products into this mix. Enjoy all the benefits of the essential oil and Epsom salts alone to get the most out of this natural aromatherapy session which also proves good for your skin.
Essential oils are too concentrated for direct usage , so you need to mix them in with any neutral-smelling carrier oil such as sweet almond oil or grape seed oil or coconut oil. Add up to 20 drops of essential oil to 1 ounce of carrier oil. Massages with oils are shown to be very therapeutic and lots of doctors actually recommend them. Massage usually works on all big muscle groups within the body, relaxing them and getting rid of any sprains.
