Get Well with Smell!

Essential oils are aromatic plant extracts that promote health and well-being. Used for thousands of years, this ancient art has an uplifting effect on the mind, body and spirit.  

First termed “aromatherapy” by French chemist René-Maurice Gattefosse in 1928, essential oils play a large part in alternative medicine therapy because of their healing effects on our bodies. Readily absorbed through the skin, or via the lungs when inhaled, these therapeutic components enter the bloodstream where they deliver their beneficial powers.

10 useful essential oils:

Lavender
The most versatile of the essential oils, lavender helps to regenerate skin, treats burns, is soothing and relaxing. It has sedative properties, is an antiseptic, and can reduce inflammation.

Chamomile
Chamomile has the ability to soothe our nerves, is good for restlessness and irritability, and soothes the digestive system. Chamomile is also anti-inflammatory and is useful for skin problems such as acne, hives, dermatitis, and eczema.

Tea Tree
Along with lavender, tea tree oil is one of the safest oils to use therapeutically. It is antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial. It can also be used to treat athlete’s foot and other fungal infections.  

Lemon
Lemon is renown for its detoxifying properties and is antibacterial and antiviral. It is useful for liver detoxification, it promotes mental clarity, and refreshes the spirit. Lemon may also help lower high blood pressure.

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus essential oil is a powerful antiseptic. It is anti-bacterial, antiviral, boosts immunity and aids respiration.

Frankincense
Frankincense facilitates breathing by helping to open the lungs’ airways. It promotes skin regeneration, preserves a youthful complexion and may reduce wrinkles. It also relieves menstrual cramps.  

Ginger
Ginger is great for digestion and helps stimulate appetite. It is very useful for nausea and can help with diarrhea, dysentery and intestinal infections. Ginger is also a renowned aphrodisiac.

Juniper
Juniper essential oil is very useful for kidney and urinary tract infections. Its strong diuretic properties make it ideal for weight loss and cellulite reduction.
