Essential oils have been used for centuries to aid in healing and enhance self-care. Essential oils are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed, or root of a plant or tree and just one drop can have powerful health benefits. Some of my favorite essential oils include:Lavender: known for its soothing and calming properties. Lavender is wonderful for accelerating healing time for burns, cuts, stings, and other wounds. It is jam-packed with anti-oxidant power, which is why it's fantastic for relieving oxidative stress.
Peppermint: gives a cooling sensation and has a calming effect on the body, which can relieve sore muscles when used topically. It also has antimicrobial properties so it can help freshen bad breath and soothe digestive issues. In addition, peppermint can be used to improve focus, energy, and concentration.
Lemon: best known for it’s ability to cleanse toxins from any part of the body. It is widely used to stimulate lymph drainage, to rejuvenate energy, purify skin, and act as a bug repellant.
