I recently received my essential oils in the mail! It is like Christmas day again. I also ordered some all-natural organic face cream. I have used it for two days and can already tell a notable difference in how soft my skin is.
You can use essential oils for so many things. You can use them as chemical free cleaning products; diffuse them; skincare; hair care; and natural remedies etc.
For example, Geranium, Frankincense, and Lavender are wonderful for the skin. Frankincense is the most referenced oil in the bible. It is great at helping boost the immune system. Frankincense contains Boswellia which is an anti-inflammatory compound.
Lemon oil is great for cleaning, natural detoxification, and can even be used with raw honey to sooth sore throats.
Lavender is great to help reduce stress and lower cortisol levels. Just add a couple of drops in a diffuser and place it close by.
Essential oils are 10-70x more concentrated than when in the plant form. This means that 15 ml bottle of lavender oil is equivalent to 150 lbs of flowers! You do have to do some research to make sure the brand you are using is organic therapeutic grade oils.
Do you use essential oils?! If so, what are some of your favorite ways to use them?
