Learn About Essential Oils.
What is an Essential Oil?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells and essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
The great thing about essential oils is that they can be used for many different things, such as:
Support for your mood: whether that be to help you deal with feelings of being overwhelmed or stressed; or to uplift or motivate you
Natural healthcare solutions: immune, digestive or respiratory support
Support for restful sleep
No-toxin natural cleaning solutions
Homemade chemical-free beauty products
Essential Oil Safety
Before using an essential oil and determining the right dosage, you need to decide how you want to apply it. There are three different ways you can apply an essential oil: aromatically, internally, and topically. Choosing the right application method is important so that you can get the benefit you want from the oil.
Because essential oils are so potent, mixing an essential oil with a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil helps lessen that potency. This is called dilution. Dilution helps protect your skin from adverse reactions while also helping your skin absorb the oil better. Always dilute essential oils before applying them to the skin.
