The Uses and Benefits of Essential Oils

I love using essential oils. I have used quite a few and I know all about their uses and benefits, and how vital they can be for our overall well-being, and state of mind. Essential Oils have been used for so many years, in various countries, for medicinal and health purposes. Everyone should have a few essential oils in their home, they are so handy to have around the house. I have a few essential oils from New Directions Aromatics and I know firsthand how useful these oils are.

Here are a few of the uses and benefits of some essential oils –

Keeps the home smelling amazing

Essential oils are useful for keeping the home smelling great. Diffusing lovely smelling oils, like clove, rosemary and orange essential oils will leave the home smelling amazing. Diffusing cinnamon essential oil also cleans the air which is brilliant!

Reduces anxiety

Some essential oils also help reduce anxiety. Diffusing lavender essential oil around your home or putting a few drops in your bath helps reduce feelings of depression, stress and tension. Diffusing lavender essential oil is the best way to end a stressful day.

Get rid of shoe smell

Essential oils are great for removing the funky smell from shoes. Just add a few drops of tea tree oil and lemon oil to your shoes to leave them smelling nice. This is one tip everyone should try.

Improves sleepΒ 

Lavender oil helps improve sleep. So if you are battling with insomnia, you might want to try this tip. All you need to do is to sprinkle a few drops on your pillow to help you drift away.

Moisturising

Essential oils are also great as a moisturizer. Mixing coconut oil, shea butter, magnesium oil and essential oils would create a great moisturizing body lotion.

Essential oils do all these and a lot more. Are you a fan of essential oils? Which is your favourite?
