Why in the World Would I Want to Use Essential Oils?
Seriously, why in the world would I want to use essential oils? What’s the big deal and why is everyone talking about them? Who knew that people have been using them for hundreds of years, and this recent craze is just good marketing to spread the word even more? I didn’t.
When you get stressed out, this is the perfect time to use essential oils. Sometimes we just need a moment to take a deep breathe and calm down. Breathe in Frankincense, Lavender, and Grapefruit Essential Oils to help reduce your stress. Lavender helps to immediately calm the brain, Frankincense helps you to refocus, and Grapefruit Essential Oil then lifts your mood into a happier state. At the end of a really hard day, add a few drops of lavender into a carrier oil like jojoba or coconut and then rub this onto the bottom of your feet.
I’m not sure about you, but I am not a big fan of having a lot of chemicals in my home, and that includes in my cleaning products. I would much rather mix a few drops of Lemon or Orange Essential Oil with vinegar to clean my kitchen and bathroom counter tops. I also add Lemon to Sea Salt to scrub residue off of dishes and other surfaces. Grab your baking soda and add in a couple drops of Peppermint Essential Oil to make a natural carpet cleaner. When your washing machine has a funky scent, add Lemon or Grapefruit Essential Oil to the rinse cycle to clean it out.
First Aid Help
Why in the world would you not look at how people have been healing themselves for hundreds of years through the power of plants and flowers? For instance, did you know you can apply Lavender Essential Oil to bug bites, minor burns and scrapes, and even on your forehead to reduce headaches? Or that Peppermint Essential Oil will settle your stomach down and reduces nausea and vomiting? Don’t forget to use Eucalyptus Essential Oil as a pain reliever and it is also a great way to take away the sting from scorpions, bees, wasps, and other insects.
