The Uses and Benefits of Essential Oils

Essential Oils have been used for so many years, in various countries, for medicinal and health purposes. They are very popular at the moment for various reasons. I know many people online who swear by them. They advise everyone to try a few essential oils in their home, before they decide on the ones that work best for their lifestyle. There are a few essential oils from New Directions Aromatics I have seen around and they look good.



Here are a few of the uses and benefits of some essential oils according to my research –


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 sleep 

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.



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.


I am yet to try essential oils but will write about my experience one I do.  Are you a fan of essential oils? Which is your favourite?
