Common Uses for Essential Oils in Herbal Home Remedies
Essential oils are very popular for people interested in natural health. These are concentrated oils that have the characteristics and benefits of the plant from which they come. But how do you use essential oils?
Read on to learn some of the most common ways to use essential oils.
Aromatherapy is one of the most common ways to take advantage of the power of essential oils.
Inhaling the fragrance of oils has been shown to help improve mood, lift depression, and reduce the effects of stress. Some oils can also help to clear up congestion.
For aromatherapy you can add oils to diffusers so that they fill the space. You can also add a little to a cotton ball and place it near you so that you get the benefits.
Adding essential oils to lotions or a warm bath can also give you these benefits.
You can also add essential oils to your skin. Essential oils will be absorbed quickly and can enter your bloodstream through your skin.
They can even pass through the blood brain barrier, which is something that makes them very powerful.
Most essential oils need to be diluted with carrier oil, such as olive or coconut oils, before being added to the skin.
You’ll find that a very small bottle of essential oil goes a long way because you only use a few drops at a time.
Essential oils can be added to lotions and other body products in order to get their healing benefits as well as their beauty benefits.
Some people also use essential oils internally in order to improve their health.
It’s important that it if you use essential oils internally you are supervised by someone who is an expert.
Some essential oils should not be taken internally. You also need to make sure that any essential oil you take internally is pure and has not had any other chemicals added to it.
For internal use you’ll use no more than a drop or two of oil diluted in a large amount of water or other liquid.
Having a clean home is essential for good health, but many people use hazardous chemicals to do the cleaning. This actually poses a danger to your health.
Essential oils can be powerful at killing germs and when added to castile soap or vinegar they can be perfect for household cleaning.
You can have a home that looks, feels, and smells clean without adding anything harmful to your environment.
