The Benefits of Essential Oils

Essential oils are known to have multiple uses for our bodies. Used therapeutically, aromatherapy (the use of essential oils) is now being incorporated into individuals day to day routines through applying topically onto the skin or clothing or used within essential oil diffusers (highly recommend!)

 Uses of Essential Oils 

Essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, grapefruit, eucalyptus, and tea tree oil have multiple benefits throughout our lives as they are known to improve sleep, ease digestion, prevent or cure skin irritation or even soothe sore muscles! 

To outline some of the uses of these essential oils, I will discuss the most popular and useful oils on the market right now…

Lavender: helps improve insomnia and anxiety, improves skin complexion, and reduces headaches (especially when applied to temples).

Copaiba: induces pain relief, improves infections, eliminates scars and prevents ingrown hairs.

Peppermint: helps improve alertness, relieves muscle pain, reduces headaches and can be used as a natural bug repellant (my favourite).

Grapefruit: helps improve digestion (and cure hunger cravings), increases alertness and prevents infections.

Eucalyptus: helps improve respiratory issues, eases infections, prevents ingrown hairs

Tea tree oil: helps prevent acne, eases infections, prevents ingrown hairs
