Give your candles a break. Adding key essential oils into your health regime can benefit your mood, skin, digestion, and may even reduce your pain levels. Aromatherapy has been around for centuries. With all the different blends and scents available, it can be overwhelming to decide which ones to use. Below we share some of our favorites.
CONGESTION – Try Eucalyptus. This oil helps to rid your body of toxins and microorganisms when you are under the weather. Inside of using Vicks VapoRub, just sprinkle a few drops into a steaming shower and inhale to clear nasal congestion naturally.
ANXIETY – Try Frankincense. This oil has a sweet, woody aroma that is grounding for the mind bringing forth feelings of peace and calm.
INSOMNIA – Try Lavender. A grounding floral scent. Massage a few drops on temples for a headache or on bottom of feet for a restful sleep. Sleeping in a hotel bed? Sprinkle a few drops on your pillow to help you adjust to new environment and/or time zone.
DEPRESSION – Try Bergamot. An uplifting, lemony smell that targets depression and calms the nervous system.
PAIN – Try Sandalwood. Add a few drops to a bath filled with Epsom salts to relieve painful joints and achy muscles. Add some to a diffuser in the evening to calm the mind and release negative thoughts.
EXHAUSTION – Try Rosemary. Activates the memory center of the brain. Great for staying awake while driving long distances or studying late at night for a test or presentation.
SKIN – Try Neroli. A powerful, regenerative oil for the skin. Promotes radiance and vitality by overturning skin cells at a faster rate.
Unsure if this is for you? Ask for a personalized essential oil evaluation to be added onto your next acupuncture or energy healing session and experience the benefits firsthand.
Caution: Not all essential oils can be applied directly to the skin and need a carrier oil. Please speak to one of our health providers before applying oils that are not already blended. Also if you are pregnant or have high blood pressure, please consult your physician.
