Essential oils are the new trend that is quickly replacing pharmaceutical pills with natural remedies to cure the simplest of symptoms and hindrances. Though these little glass bottles of oil may seem slightly pricey, they make up for all the capsules that sit in your medicine cabinet. It is clear that these essential oils are working and perhaps you want to get in on the new craze. So let’s start with a few oils that are… well, essential.
The Sickness Shield: Thieves
A Useful Classic: Lavender
Not only is the smell fresh and classic, lavender oil uses range from calming to providing skincare. If you have a cut or burn, it’s best to rub diluted lavender oil directly onto the cleaned area to quicken the healing process. Lavender provides healing for your body, but also for your soul. If you have a stressful day, you can diffuse lavender into the air up to an hour, three times a day.
Mighty and Effective: Peppermint
Peppermint oil releases tight muscles inside and out. It reduces stomach aches and muscle strains if you massage the diluted oil into the desired area. A headache can easily be relieved by applying peppermint oil onto your forehead and wrists. It works quicker than ibuprofen or Tylenol because within minutes you’re relieved! Peppermint oil can also be diffused to help you focus or clear your sinuses. Due to how effective this oil is, it is pretty popular and you can pretty much get it in any starter pack or kit—including those you can from Davina Wellness.
The Oil of Youth: Frankincense
This last, but necessary, oil is most definitely useful where your skin is concerned. Frankincense helps eliminate imperfections anywhere on your body. But be careful, dilution is not needed unless you have sensitive skin. This is perfect for those who are concerned about their skin aging or teenagers who are worried about acne scarring their beautiful faces. You can also diffuse this oil to increase spiritual awareness during prayer, meditation or if you’d simply like to uplift your mood.
These four oils are only the beginning of what is essential. If you’re planning on getting in on the big deal, these are certainly the best to start with. So treat yourself and your body to something well deserving and essential to you.
