Let’s take a moment to talk about essential oils. If you don’t already know, essential oils is all the craze at the moment and for a good reason too. Having been around for many, many years, essential oils provide natural cosmetic and health benefits.
What is essential oils: Natural oil (that’s not really oil but concentrated components) that’s been distilled and extracted from a plant or other source.
Why it’s good for you: We all know the power of scent, and how a certain smell like lavender can bring comfort and relaxation to our minds and bodies. With essential oils, the smell goes far beyond than just a pleasent smell.
Thanks to Young Living, we were able to experience the advantages that comes with using essential oils in our lives, and here’s what our editor has to share:
“Each bottle of essential oil comes with its own purpose and the best way to familiarize yourself would be to read a book about therapeutic aromatherapy, which is what I did. After educating myself, I realised that there are so many ways essential oils could help me with my health.
Stress Away – When I opened the box, I was particularly interested in the little green bottle that had Stress Away printed on it. I mean, who wouldn’t be interested? Boasting a very sweet and citrusy scent, the Stress Away essential oil is meant to help you relax. Some may be skeptical but in my own experience I found that I was a lot calmer after applying Stress Away on my wrists and the back of my neck. The little bottle makes it travel-friendly, which means comfort can be on-the-go.
Lavender – With so many things on my mind, I sometimes find it very hard to fall asleep and when I do, the sleep is often not a good one. Many have talked about the effects Lavender essential oil has when it concerns sleeping, so I gave it a go but this time using the diffuser. Not only did my room smell great but I found myself in a deep sleep that night, which is why I make sure to diffuse every night before heading to bed.
Digize – This exotic blend of essential oils has a more spicy note to it and I’ve learn that rich and calming scent is perfect to diffuse at the end of each day. So, if you’re looking to wind down after a busy day at the office, I highly suggest diffusing this.
Peppermint – When it comes to the Peppermint essential oil, it’s not just about a refreshing scent that is to be diffused to uplift your spirits. If you feel a cold coming on, drop a few into your diffuser and you’ll find that the smell will unclog your sinus in no time.
Thieves – Being prone to tonsillitis sucks because you’re overcome with a sore throat so painful that you can hardly speak. That was until I discovered Thieves, which I tend to diffuse when I can detect that scratchy feeling in my throat before a full blown tonsillitis infection. You’ll be amazed at how it really does help and that’s probably because Thieves is an antibacterial blend. I also love to diffuse some Thieves if a few times a week, just to clean the air in my home.
So far, I’ve only been able to try out these five essential oils but I look forward to using the rest, so keep your eyes peeled for another essential oil review!
And if you’re wondering if it’s worth your time and money to invest in an essential oils starter pack then the answer is yes. More than just cute bottles with scented oil in them, essential oils can really have a positive effect on your general well-being.”
