Essential oils and their benefits

Essential Oils and their Benefits

 Essential oils have been in use for over 6000 years now, yet their use in a more widely accepted form has begun just about now. 

 

 Here are the how's and why's of this sudden change. 

Leading a naturally healthy lifestyle has gained momentum in every aspect of life, directly correlating the use of essential oils in everyday life – may it be for beauty or wellness. But before we delve into essential oils, their naturalness, and how their organic aroma can balance our energies and open our subconscious mind, let's get informed about precisely what essential oils are? 

Essential oils are naturally existing compounds extracted from plants and flowers, and their unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its distinctive 'essence.' These aromatic compounds in oils are delivered in three ways—inhalation, topical application, and oral ingestion. 

  

Essential oils are indispensable in Aromatherapy, which employs plant extracts to support health and well-being through inhalation. The earthy aroma in the essential oils can be a stimulus to your limbic system, which plays a role in emotions, behaviours, sense of smell, and long-term memory. Curiously, the limbic system is involved in forming memories as well, and hence the smell of first rain, the old books, the taste of the raw mango bring back memories with the same emotions you felt at that specific time. Aromatherapists often use this technique as an alternative therapy to assuage certain disorders like depression, anxiety. 

Benefits of essential oils: 

The recent popularity of essential oils being used in makeup products has stirred up curiosity about the benefits. So, let's get you educated, shall we? 

1) Stress and Anxiety

Essential oils treat mental and physical stress as the aroma triggers the pain points, enables relaxation, and heals on application to the skin. Oils of Lavender and Sandalwood are the key ingredients when dealing with stress. 

2) Reduces Signs of Aging

It is no surprise that humans had traditional, natural means to keep their eternal beauty intact even before cosmetics arrived. Old is gold, they say, and when it comes to skin-care, who better to ask than your own grand-ma who was brought up with pure nature!

The secret being; Ayurveda, essential oils, and home remedies; may be ancient to us, but they've never stopped working for them, so why not take some advantage of this? 

Essential Oils; apart from being natural, they are chemical-free, skin and hair-friendly, organic, inexpensive, and convenient. Oils like rosemary, lemon, clary sage and lavender do a great job of improving your appearance and providing you with a more youthful countenance.

3) Hair

Essential oils and hair go together like a PB&J sandwich. Lavender and peppermint oil can speed up hair growth, rosemary oil can improve hair thickness, cedarwood can reduce hair loss and lemongrass is excellent for a flake-free scalp.
