Did you attend our Essential oils 101 workshop or are just interested in finding out more about essential oils? Want to start using essential oils? Essential oils have been a huge addition to our yoga studio, our members and our healthy lifestyle. Essential
oils come as single oils or as blends of various oils together.
Essential oils are also included in home cleaning products, supplements,
in skin, body, hair, and dental care products, plus there are even
items for your kids and your pets. You can have fun combining your
favorite oils and also incorporating them into your personal care or
cleaning products – or, even make your own! What are essential oils? Essential oils come from certain plants and have been used by ancient people for thousands of years. They’re basically concentrated herbs but not all plants provide essential oils. A good example is a lemon peel that secretes lemon essential oils when it is squeezed or scraped. The difference is that one tiny bottle of lemon essential oil has the oil from 40 lemon peels, much more than anyone person would have the patience to squeeze. Essential oils contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use these essences support our own health and wellness. There are many different kinds of oils out there, and they all have different properties and uses. From well-known plants like Bergamot and Eucalyptus to unusual and exotic ones like rose and frankincense, there’s an unfathomably huge range to choose from – and they each provide all sorts of different benefits and uses.
The Benefits of Essential Oils Essential oils have been around for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. There is well-documented research supporting their use for physical and emotional health.
Essential oils can be used to: Enhance your physical wellness – From cleansing and weight management to supporting every system of the body, essential oils and essential oil-infused supplements can provide the targeted solutions you need to restore balance and feel your best. Inspire a positive emotional state – Each essential oil’s complex, pleasant, and unique scent activates the limbic system—the brain’s center of emotion and memory—differently. Essential oils can be your key to a more fulfilling and balanced emotional life. Purify your home – Harsh chemical formulas aren’t your only home cleansing option. Enjoy peace of mind without compromise when you clean your home with the gentle but effective power of essential oils and products. Refine your skin – Purge chemicals from your beauty routine and rediscover your natural glow. An ancient skin care secret, essential oils can help promote a clear-looking complexion, soften the appearance of signs of aging, and nurture healthy-looking hair. Create deep spiritual awareness – Incense and essential oils from plants have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants to transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. How to Use Essential Oils These health-promoting botanicals can be diffused, inhaled, applied topically, or incorporated into massage. Because essential oils are highly concentrated, a little goes a long way. As a general rule, essential oils that are applied topically are also used with a carrier oil. Carrier oils ensure that essential oils are comfortable to the skin. Dilution with a carrier oil does not dilute the effect of the essential oil. In fact, it prevents waste due to excessive application. Some of the best carrier oils are coconut oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil. Essential oils are very powerful, so start low and go slow. In most cases, 1–2 drops are adequate, and using more may waste product. Depending on the essential oil, you can gradually build up to 3–4 uses per day, if desired. Diffusers let you reap the benefits of aromatherapy in any room of your home or office.
Diffusers utilize ultrasonic technology to break up the mixture of essential oils and water into extremely fine microparticles and disperses the ingredients in essential oils into the air. It provides an excellent method of calming and moisturizing to build a healthy, natural, and pure living environment. Generally, 6-8 drops are used in a diffuser.
