Why I love Essential Oils...
I am continually amazed at the health benefits of essential oils, here are some to name a few.
1 Reduce Coughs or Sinusitis
Ease your symptoms of a common cold by adding a few drops into steaming hot water and inhale deeply to clear your nasal passages.
2 Energize Your Workout
Use a drop of peppermint oil on your tongue or inhale the aroma deeply to energize your workout and reduce fatigue post-workout.
3 Improve Digestion
If you’re experiencing bloating, nausea, or other irritations in your digestion, combine a drop of ginger oil, peppermint oil, and fennel oil in a glass of water and drink.
4 Improve Concentration
If you need to boost your concentration in the afternoon, inhale a deep breath of the aroma of bergamot, grapefruit or peppermint oil.
5 Boost Immune System
If you’re feeling a bit low on energy and need a boost, put a drop or oregano oil in a glass of water and drink once a day to help support immune healing.
6 Improve allergy symptoms
If your allergies are acting up put a drop of frankincense on your palms and inhale the aroma deeply to relieve itchy eyes, throat and a stuffy nose.
7 Reduce back and neck pain
Use the healing impact of the combination of peppermint, ginger, and cayenne pepper oils with coconut oil to make a homemade muscle rub to relieve pain.
8 Curb your food cravings
Balance your cravings by stabilizing your blood sugar with a deep inhalation of peppermint oil or cinnamon oil.
