Isn’t it wonderful to think that plants are designed to give us therapeutic benefits? They are known to help with all kinds of issues.
For centuries, various cultures have embraced the unique power of plants to help improve physical, emotional and mental health. Oils are extracted from specific plants for specific benefits.
Generally speaking, essential oils are extracted from plants through the process of distillation. If you are buying essential oils or products enhanced with essential oils, it is important to understand where the oils are from and how they are made. 100% pure products are often better and more effective than those that are too diluted.
Essential Oil Benefits
Essential oils often smell great, and they are valued primarily because they can help improve health and promote healing. These are the very same oils that protect plants from harsh environments.
Though essential oils have been around for a while, they have only started to become popular in recent decades. Some traditional hospitals have also started using essential oils in helping their patients recover.
Here are some of the most popular essential oils and the benefits they offer:
Lavender - Lavender is known to reduce emotional stress. It can help improve sleep as well.
Tea Tree - Tea tree oil is an all-around remedy that has a lot of uses around the home. It is quite popular because it can be used to clean minor cuts and wounds.
Bergamot - Bergamot is known to help relieve stress and lift one's mood. It is also used to soothe irritated skin.
