Essential oils are proving to be a game-changer in the self-help industry. More & more people are no resorting to the natural remedies of various ailments, and essential oils are proving themselves to be a true remedy in this regard. Below I will enlist a few of these incredible oils.
This oil is one of the most popular of all the essential oils, and it holds its position for all the right reasons. Peppermint is an herb we are all too familiar with; it could be in your shampoo or your toothpaste. Right now I’m chewing bubblegum, and it has peppermint extract in it. This oil made of menthol and menthone works as a stimulant, and it is very effective in dealing with headaches. This oil also acts as an antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial substance. It can aid in improving concentration and healing nausea.
2. Sweet Orange Oil
This oil, though often underrated, I have found is one of the beneficial essential oil. But the best part is that this oil helps you curb your sugar cravings immensely! You will see that with just a few whiffs, you won’t feel hungry for desserts. It is quite fulfilling in this sense. A slight problem with the sweet orange oil is that its topical application results in the photosensitive skin. So you should consider adding it to your shower gel and rinse it off immediately to get the best results. Also, make sure that you do not add more than twelve drops of this oil per ounce of the product you’re using.
3. Tea-tree oil
Tea-tree oils and extracts are popular all over the world due to their extensive use in beauty regimens. Everyone who is clinging to the idea of going natural is exclusively buying products with tea-tree extracts. This oil is anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and it is also boasted to help protect against cancer owing to its anti-cancer activity. It can kill oral bacteria and inhibit it for up to two weeks; it can heal dandruff and nausea/influenza. I recommend that you add low amounts of tea-tree oil in all your skincare products and you will see the difference surely. It will help tighten your skin and make you look fresh and glowing skin.
4. Lavender Oil
And now comes the turn of my favorite oil. The fragrance of lavender oil is something I am smitten with. You’re probably tired of the fact that I mention it almost everywhere, but I just can’t help it! The effect of this oil on the nervous system is astonishing. This oil is derived from a type of lavender amongst 39 others. Along with other useful properties, this oil is said to have sedative properties as well. Fascinating, isn’t it? This oil will also help you boost your immunity and help protect against the viral diseases.
5. Cinnamon Oil
Last, but not the least is cinnamon oil. This is sweet, spicy and somewhat musky oil with an element of sexiness to it. Cinnamon has imported from the east ages ago, and now it has become an incredible spice of value across the world. Rare are the cuisines exempt from its taste, and cinnamon oil is equally famous for its antispasmodic and analgesic properties. At the beginning of times, this oil was affordable only to the emperors, the courtiers and the nobles however now it can be found in the affordable price range.
I hope this short list of healthy essential oil helped you. Have a good day!
