Plant extracts or essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their natural healing powers, by harnessing their therapeutic properties, aromatherapy works to improve our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. The aromatic benefit of essential oils has been proven to enter the bloodstream quicker when inhaled. This way of use is shown to be the most effective. Our sense of smell is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. When we use and breathe in essential oils we trigger emotional and sometimes physical responses.
But what’s the benefit and what can we actually use essential oils for?
Beauty And Skincare
Essential oils have been used in beauty products for centuries and with good reason. The benefits to the addition of these wondrous oils are many. For example, frankincense oil is often added to beauty products for its anti-aging and wrinkle-busting abilities. Patchouli essential oil is used for skin and scalp complaints. It has excellent tissue regenerating properties, speeds up healing, and fights infections. Use patchouli to help with acne, eczema, and even to treat athlete’s foot.
