Everything You Need to Know About Essential Oils

You might have experienced essential oils in spa treatments or bath and body care products, but essential oils are much more than just nice scents.

These powerful plant extracts have been used for thousands of years for their medicinal and cosmetic health properties. In more recent times, essential oils are being harnessed to combat modern lifestyles that don’t always create optimal conditions for total wellness (think poor diet, lack of exercise and environmental toxins).

From cleansing to supporting every system of the body, essential oil blends can provide targeted solutions to restore balance (balancing hormones, boosting immunity, and aiding digestion to name a few!) and boost diminished energy levels.

So, How Do Essential Oils  Actually Work?

The reason essential oils are so effective at bringing balance back to the body is best explained by how they’re used by the plants themselves.

Plants produce essential oils to protect them from bacteria and fungus and to deter insects. In short: they are the immune system of the plant.

By extracting oil from the seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruit, etc. you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil. In humans, because they are biologically active, they start the healing process by acting on the cellular level and penetrating cell membranes. Studies have shown that the chemical constituents are so powerful, they have the potential to positively affect every cell in the body.

And this is why we infuse essential oils (free of parabens, PEGs, synthetic fragrances, and other toxic ingredients) within our product lines, including these:

  • Bergamot Oil: Reduces nervous tension, anxiety, and stress.
  • Chamomile Oil: Promotes relaxation, sedates nerves and reduces anxiety.
  • Peppermint Oil: Cooling, anti-inflammatory.
  • Rosemary Oil: Improves cognitive function, stimulates blood circulation*
  • Eucalyptus Oil: Refreshing, removes mental sluggishness, relieves minor pain* 

What Should You Look For When Buying Essential Oils?

The therapeutic benefits of essential oils are only available if they are extracted in the right way and are free from pesticides, chemical additives, preservatives, synthetic fillers or other contaminants.

So how do you navigate the plethora of products on the market today and make sure you are getting a quality product? Look for certified, pure, therapeutic grade essential oils free of the nasties listed above, and harvested in natural conditions.

Essential oils lie at the intersection of cutting-edge research and traditional wisdom and open us up to a whole new way of preventing and reversing health conditions.

So whether you’re new to essential oils or you’re ready for advanced natural healing techniques, adding essential oils into your wellness routine can help you take back control of your life.
