Essential oils and how to use them
The essential oils used in aromatherapy have many benefits which can help enhance your physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing. They work by harnessing the essence, fragrance and healing power of natural plant compounds to complement your healthy lifestyle and achieve better balance. There are many plants, herbs, spices and botanicals that are known for their therapeutic properties. These can be used to help alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of conditions, including asthma, insomnia, depression, anxiety, arthritis and menopause.
The known benefits of using essential oils include easing pain, improving sleep, soothing sore joints, alleviating headaches and enhancing mood. Certain oils are also thought to contain properties which can boost immunity and improve your digestive health. However, when it comes to using them properly and safely, caution should prevail. Essential oils shouldn’t be swallowed or applied directly to the skin. If you are using them for massage purposes, always use a carrier oil to dilute the pure oils, which can cause reactions if you have sensitive skin or allergies to specific ingredients. Certain essential oils can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so if you are planning on sunbathing, they should be avoided. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also take care and use essential oils only after seeking advice from a doctor. If you’re unsure, always make sure you read the label thoroughly before use.
