15 More Reasons Why I Love Essential Oils

Hi,

Aromatherapy Essential OIls - 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them (Part 2 of 2)

Welcome to the conclusion of the two part article called Aromatherapy Essential Oils – 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them. Last week I wrote about the first 15 reasons I think essential oils could make a positive impact in your life. This week’s article will be the conclusion with the final 15 reasons.

If you didn’t have an opportunity to read Part 1, feel free to go back and check it out. 🙂

I am an avid user of essential oils. I love all the benefits they provide. If you don’t currently use them, perhaps you will be inspired to start your aromatherapy journey. If you do use essential oils, perhaps you will find a thing or two of interest here.

Let’s get started with the final 15 reasons that I think essential oils are AWESOME! 🙂

1. Allergy Relief

A girl with seasonal allergies.

Many people purchase over-the-counter remedies to ease the discomfort of seasonal allergy symptoms. In some cases these options are necessary, but not always. Did you know many essential oils contain properties that can ease the symptoms of seasonal allergies?

Some oils that have been known to help are Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Peppermint, Bergamot, Lemon and Tea Tree.

For more details read Essential Oils and Allergies – Seasonal Allergy Relief.

2. Clean and Purify the Air You Breathe

Diffusing essential oils in a diffuser can help clean the air in our homes and offices. Many essential oils have antibacterial and antimicrobial components which means they can help rid the air of harmful bacteria that make us sick. Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon and Lavender are examples of oils that can help in this way.

Several studies have been performed to confirm this. Here’s some research you may be interested in:

Research Study #1

Research Study #2

3. Versatile

I love how many uses my oils have. Let’s think about Lemon oil for example, I can clean my house with it, use it in a diffuser to clean the air, boost my energy level, relieve nausea, improve digestion, boost my immune system, relieve a cough…the list goes on.

Almost all (if not all) essential oils have more than one use. I think this is just fantastic! Essential oils are very versatile!

4. Dreams, Nightmares, Night Terrors (and Sleep)

Of all our senses, our sense of smell is one of the strongest. A particular aroma can quickly bring on a flood of memories and even change a person’s mood.

Sweet Dreams

When we smell something, a message is sent through our nose (olfactory nerves/fibers) to the limbic system and the amygdala. These are the places in our brain that are in charge of our mood, emotions and memory.

Since everything we experience can affect our dreams, it is therefore logical to believe that diffusing aromas that evoke peaceful thoughts and emotions will increase the likelihood of good dreams and a restful sleep.

For more information about dreaming and essential oils check out this article.

5. Essential Oils and Modern Medication

I feel so fortunate to live in the modern world with access to the wonderful advances in the medical field. I would probably be dead if it wasn’t for the progress made in this area (this is the case for many people). With that being said, I also feel natural solutions are a very important aspect to my overall health.

I diffuse essential oils on a regular basis. I do this to keep my immune system in top condition. One reason for this is because I am allergic to three common antibiotics (maybe more). I would rather utilize the natural benefits of essential oils (proactively) than have to start a course of antibiotics when I get sick. I haven’t had any allergic reactions to essential oils thus far. So, for me, I feel essential oils are safer.

I use EOs for cough, cold, flu, anxiety, hormonal issues, relaxation, etc. As I said before, I am grateful to have access to the brilliant and technologically advanced medical system available to me, but natural remedies are always my first choice when it comes to my general overall health.

6. Digestion

Yes, essential oils can be used to help digestion too! Ginger, Lemon, Peppermint and Rosemary are known to help in this area. If you are having difficulty with digestion you may like to try diffusing a few drops of these oils in a diffuser or make a massage lotion to rub on your belly.

7. Laundry

Laundry Detergent

Essential oils can be used when doing the laundry. If you have sensitive skin like me, then you likely purchase unscented laundry soap. Did you know you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to liquid detergent? The amount you add will depend on your personal preference and size of the detergent bottle. Add a few drops at a time and shake bottle. This will add a nice scent in the wash.

Did you know you can make your own Fabric Softener with EOs? Watch for an upcoming article with more details on this topic. 🙂

8. Essential Oils and the Flu

As we know, flu viruses are always changing and mutating and this makes it challenging for researchers to develop effective medications and vaccines. This is one of the reasons that natural remedies are becoming increasingly popular. I believe researchers are doing the best they can and I get my flu shot every year!

Traditional healthcare practitioners have used essential oils for thousands of years to treat different ailments, so in addition to my flu shot I take advantage of the old traditions as well.

Some essential oils that have significant anti-influenza virus properties are:

Bergamot oil – effective against flu viruses as a vapor after just 10 minutes of exposure.

Eucalyptus oil – shows anti-viral activity as a vapor.

Tea Tree oil – is effective against the flu virus within 5 to 10 minutes of exposure.

Lemon balm – known to prevent the avian influenza (bird flu) virus from reproducing.

For further details check out this article from the Medical News Today Website.

9. Nausea

When I feel sick to my stomach I reach for my Ginger essential oil. It works great! It can be diffused, rubbed onto pressure points at your forehead and wrists, or even rubbed onto your stomach (always dilute with a carrier oil before using topically).

Other oils that are known to be helpful when feeling nauseous are Lavender, Peppermint, Cardamom and Fennel.

For further information about using essential oils for nausea check out this article from Healthline.

10. Essential Oils and Meditation

Meditating person

Many people practice meditation as a mind-body complementary medicine. It can reduce stress, depression, pain and anxiety. Check out the following list of oils and how they can enhance your meditation practice:

  • Frankincense helps clear the mind of distractions.
  • Lavender and Jasmine are known to decrease negative thoughts and improve overall mood
  • Peppermint is known to help eliminate body pain. Meditation typically requires you to stay in one position for a period of time. If you experience pain in your back, muscles, joints, neck or other body parts, try diffusing Peppermint or use topically to ease some discomfort.

For more details on this topic read Best Essential Oils for Meditation.

11. Arthritis

Essential oils can be used as an alternative or complementary treatment for arthritis pain. Some oils that help ease the discomfort of arthritis are:

  • Peppermint works as an analgesic and an anesthetic. It relaxes muscles and soothes inflammation and pain.
  • Frankincense is an analgesic and has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Lavender can help to relieve painful swelling and inflammation.
  • Eucalyptus is an analgesic and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Each essential oil provides an amazing amount of benefits, more than I have listed here. It is good to remember that many oils help with the secondary symptoms of dealing with chronic pain such as depression and anxiety.

If you would like more information. Feel free to check out this recent article Essential Oils For Arthritis.

12. Muscle Pain

Most of us experience sore muscles from time to time. Maybe you’ve had a long work out at the gym or you spent a long day bending and stretching in the garden. Did you know many essential oils can quickly ease this pain? Some examples are Ginger, Black Pepper, Peppermint, Marjoram and Rosemary.

When I have sore muscles I reach for my premixed blend of Rosemary and Peppermint. This is how I make it:

Using a 10 ml Roller Bottle, I add 7 drops of Peppermint and 5 drops of Rosemary. Then I fill the remainder of the bottle with Jojoba carrier oil. Add the roller and cap and shake well. I roll this awesome combination on my sore muscles and if desired I can use it as a massage oil too! This is only one example of the essential oils that can alleviate sore muscle pain.

Many oils can provide relief and there are a ton of combinations that work well.

13. Smoking Cessation

Essential oils will not magically eliminate all cravings and withdrawal symptoms when you are trying to kick the habit but they can be used as a complementary addition to other medications or strategies.

Black Pepper, Basil, Frankincense, Spikenard and Vetiver essential oils are thought to decrease cravings related to cigarette smoking.

14. Boost Energy

I love my coffee, especially first thing in the morning. I often drink one more at some point during the day, especially if it is a work day. But there are times when I just don’t want more coffee, yet I want an energy boost. At these times I use essential oils in my diffuser or my portable Roller Bottle. You guessed it! EOs can even boost your energy level!

There are many essential oils that can help in this area. Some even help improve focus and motivation. Lemon, Orange, Cinnamon and Peppermint are some of the best oils to increase energy. They can be added to a diffuser or used in a portable Roller Bottle. Use separately or blend together for increased benefits. 🙂

15. Fun

Yes, you read it right! Essential oils can be FUN! I have a blast learning about aromatherapy and all the wonderful things essential oils can do for me.

I love mixing and blending oils together and making “potions”. Yes, I call them that, for fun! LOL

DIY Essential Oil Products

Some people get together and have essential oil parties. I was talking to someone last week, they were planning a party. One of the activities on the agenda was to create body mists with essential oils! Sounds FUN, right?

So, yes, essential oils have a fun aspect to them. 🙂

Conclusion

Thanks for spending a few minutes with me and reading Aromatherapy Essential Oils – 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them (Part 2 of 2). I hope these two articles have given you something to consider when it comes to incorporating these awesome oils into your life.

There is one more thing I wanted to add, it is a little excerpt that I have used in previous articles about negative and positive ions.

Ultrasonic Diffusers Produce Negative Ions – Is This a Good Thing?

Yes, it is a good thing!

Our bodies have a magnetic field. This field is made of negative and positive ions. In our modern world we are exposed to an overabundance of positive ions (also called “free radicals”). Free radicals have unpaired electrons. They are highly reactive and they take electrons from our healthy cells to neutralize their own charge. This can cause cellular damage to our bodies. Cell phones, computers, televisions, electrical equipment, some foods and pollution produce these “free radicals”.

Beautiful Waterfall

What are we to do? How can we counteract these positive ions with negative ions? If you are lucky enough to live by an ocean, a waterfall, or even in the mountains then you have access to an abundance of negative ions in nature. Most of us are not fortunate enough to live in such an environment.

There is something we can do to counteract these positive ions with negative ions. We can use an Ultrasonic Diffuser! This is good news! Negative ions are produced in the diffuser when the small ceramic disc vibrates the water and creates the vapor that we breathe in. Awesome! If you choose to add essential oils to your diffuser, the ultrasonic vibrations will break the oils into tiny micro particles and disperse them in the mist as well.

Essential oils are very POTENT and should be used with common sense and caution. Always read the labels. If you are currently taking any prescribed medication speak to your doctor before using essential oils. If you are concerned about allergies, you may want to perform a patch test on your skin. Some essential oils are photo toxic. Avoid the sun as necessary when using these oils. Some oils are not recommended for children. Some oils are not recommended if you are pregnant or nursing. Dilution rates vary for children and the elderly. Essential oils are considered “complementary and alternative medicines” and are not a substitute for professional medical intervention and advice.

Essential Oils, Are They A Passing Trend?

Hello,

Do you use essential oils in your life? If so, aren’t they great! If you don’t, why not?

Aromatherapy Essential OIls - 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them  youraromatherapystore.com

The intent of this week’s article (and next week’s as well) will be to share 30 reasons why I think you should consider adding aromatherapy essential oils into your life.

If you haven’t actually used them, you may wonder what all the fuss is about. I’m sure many of you have seen the cute little bottles of oils in your grocery or drug store. Maybe you think they are just a new “trend” that will pass. In my opinion essential oils are here to stay and for good reason, well, 30 good reasons!…and more

The idea of using organic plant material for health and overall well-being is nothing new. People have been doing this for thousands of years. In fact, my husband and I use essential oils on a daily basis for all kinds of reasons. Yes, they smell great but that is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the plethora of benefits these awesome plant oils have to offer.

What are Essential Oils? How do they work?

Essential oils come from plant material. Plants have amazing abilities that help them survive and thrive in the world. For example, they can:

  • create scents/chemical compounds that attract particular insects to them for reproduction purposes
  • create scents/chemical compounds that repel other types of plants to grow nearby
  • create scents/chemical compounds to protect and provide immunity from a wide range of organisms
Aromatherapy Essential Oils - 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them (part 1 of 2)
Close-up of a leaf.

When you really think about it, it becomes clear that we use these oils (from the plants) for many of the same reasons as the plants did in the first place. We use essential oils to attract (perfumes) and even repel (bug spray), and we use them to protect and provide immunity. Plants are a huge part of our very existence, beyond the reasons listed above. We rely on plants for the very oxygen we breathe and the food we eat.

We can utilize the essences or “lifeblood” of plants by extracting their oils in a variety of ways including:

  • Steam Distillation
  • Solvent Extraction
  • CO2 Extraction
  • Cold Press Extraction
  • Water Distillation

Essential oils can be used in three ways. Inhalation, using them topically or oral ingestion. My personal preferences are to use them in a diffuser and topical use.

There are so many reasons to start practicing aromatherapy. I am pretty excited to share what I know. Let’s begin with the first 15 of 30 reasons.

1. Air Freshener

Ah, the wonderful scent that hits your nose when you walk through a flower garden, when you slice some fresh ginger, after a rain storm, when you are baking a pie, etc. One of the many gifts from nature is aroma.

Why would anyone choose to freshen up their home, car, office, or anywhere with a chemically infused product when we can capture natural scents and use them anytime, anywhere?

To make your own air freshener, simply add 20 drops of oil into a 2 oz spray bottle and fill the rest with water, spray as needed.

Using a natural air freshener made with essential oils not only makes your environment smell great but you will also be getting the multitude of other benefits that are associated with the particular oil you use.

2. Improves Memory and Concentration

Do you ever experience the inability to concentrate? Do you wonder why you can’t recall things that you know you should? Do you sit in meetings at work and find that your mind wanders? As you may have guessed, there’s an oil for that! There are several actually.

Aromatherapy Essential Oils - 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them (part 1 of 2)

Peppermint, Frankincense, Lemon, Basil, Sage, Lavender, Cypress and Rosemary are a few examples.

Why not take advantage of essential oils instead of another coffee on those days when you need a little extra mental clarity. These oils can easily be mixed with a carrier oil and tossed in your purse or pocket to use at your convenience throughout the day. Sounds good, right?

For more information on this subject check out the article entitled Essential Oils for Concentration and Memory.

Check out these handy roller bottles! I have personally used them to carry my oils with me. They work great!

3. Warm Up on Those Chilly Days

Do you have less than great circulation? Do you live in a cold climate? I live in a part of the world where winter can last for 5-6 months. Staying warm can be challenge at times. Some essential oils increase blood flow, and this means they can help us stay warm.

Oregano, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Myrrh, Ginger and Frankincense are examples of oils that can work in this way.

Adding a few drops of warming essential oils to unscented body lotion and applying it to your skin is a great way to get the circulation going. Diffusing oils into the air or adding a few drops (diluted with a carrier oil) into your bath works great too!

For more detailed information about this subject, check out this article entitled Warm and Cozy Essential Oils.



4. Headaches and Migraines

I am very lucky, I don’t struggle with headaches and migraines very often. When I do, I diffuse peppermint or apply one or more of the following oils to my temples, neck or wrists using a roller bottle.

Peppermint EO is a popular choice! The active ingredient is menthol, studies have indicated that it can relief migraines. Rosemary and Lavender EOs are both thought to ease tension and ease pain of headaches and migraines. Other oils that are helpful are Chamomile, Eucalyptus and Sandalwood.

For further information about studies regarding essential oils and headaches you may like to check out an article I have published entitled Essential Oils for Headaches and Migraines. 🙂

For even further information regarding research in this area, you can check out the two links below.

5. Natural Body Spray/Mist

Make your own body spray or mist with essential oil. Here are several reasons you might like this idea:

  • • To cleanse and refresh skin
  • • To cool down an overheated body
  • • For a natural lingering scent on the skin
  • • For deodorizing purposes
  • • To uplift a dull mood
  • • To calm down the mind and body
  • • To create a relaxing effect
  • • For skin rejuvenation

If you want more information about making your own body mists, check out this awesome article I found on a website called The Miracle of Essential Oils. Here you will find instructions and recipes to create your very own body mist.

https://www.themiracleofessentialoils.com/diy-essential-oil-body-mist-recipes/

Making your own body mists can be less expensive than choosing a store bought product plus you will know exactly what you are spraying on your skin. It’s also a great deal of fun! Create blends you love! Great gift idea too!

6. Boost Your Immune System

Despite the fact this is #6 on my list of reasons to use essential oils, it is one of the main reasons I practice aromatherapy. I am convinced that my immune system is working in optimal condition due to regularly using essential oils.

I am employed in a classroom of young children, and this classroom is located in a hospital. The potential for me to run into a ton of germs is very high. I rarely get sick when others around me are suffering from colds/flu and other illnesses, I rarely get sick. When I do get sick, the symptoms are less intense and pass quickly. This may sound too good to be true but I am convinced the essential oils that I diffuse on a regular basis are boosting my immunity and helping me stay healthy.

There are many oils that can boost your immune system. My favorites are Eucalyptus, Lemon, Peppermint, Rosemary and Frankincense.

For more information on this topic check out the article entitled Boost Your Immune System with Essential Oils.

7. Enhance your Libido

Aromatherapy Essential Oils - 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them (part 1 of 2)

Yup…there’s even an oil (several) for that! Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to “get you in the mood”. LOL I wrote an article about this very topic entitled Jasmine Essential Oil – An Oil for Romance.

Despite the lack of research and studies, there are many that believe the scent of Jasmine can aid with conditions such as premature ejaculation, frigidity and impotence.

8. Essential Oils to Fight Anxiety and Stress

There are a number of different oils that can help when we are feeling anxious and stressed. Have you considered using essential oils to help yourself relax? Perhaps you feel anxious while driving in heavy traffic, or stressed before a social event. Essential oils can help!

When we feel stress, our bodies create a hormone called cortisol. A certain amount of this hormone is good as it helps to regulate the body to meet its physiological demands. Too much cortisol is detrimental to our overall health.

Inhaling essential oils can improve our stress response by calming our sympathetic nervous system which in turn will lower our cortisol levels. That is very beneficial!

For more information and to find out which oils can help check out this article entitled Essential Oils for Emotional Healing.

“I have an advertising relationship with the stores/ businesses that I link in this post. I will earn a commission when you shop through my link with no added cost to you.”

9. Cleaning With Essential Oils

Lots of store bought household cleaners actually contain essential oils. EOs are powerful and have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Unfortunately, many of the products available on the market can also contain chemicals that may not be good for you.

You can easily make your own cleaners for almost any job around the house!

Lemon, Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Orange, and Tea Tree are among the popular choices used in making DIY cleaning products.

I have written a few articles that include information about cleaning with essential oils. Check them out! 🙂

10. Do You Need Help Falling Asleep?

You guessed it, essential oils can help with that too! If I am feeling too wound up before bed, I just put a few drops of lavender in my diffuser and fall off to sleep.

The knowledge and use of essential oils is growing, even in the commercial market. In fact, just the other day my daughter was away for the weekend and the hotel she was staying in provided an aromatherapy Sleep Well Balm in the room. It was made of Chamomile and Lavender. Knowing that I love this kind of stuff, she sent me these pictures!

There have been several studies showing that smelling Lavender has positive effects on sleep.

11. Kids Love Them

I’ve heard many people say that their kids love using essential oils for all the same reasons adults do. Why wouldn’t they? I’m not saying our kids don’t need modern medication when needed, we all do. I’m all for visiting the doctor and the benefits of modern medicine when needed. I’m suggesting that essential oils could be the first line of defense when it comes to things like cough and cold symptoms, headaches etc.

Robert Tesserand (a respected authority in the field of aromatherapy) and the well-known Essential Oil Company Plant Therapy have designed a line of Kid Friendly oils. Pretty cool!



12. Hangover Relief

It’s been quite some time since I had to use my essential oils for a hangover…LOL. But, yes, essential oils can be used to help ease the discomfort we feel after having a few too many drinks.

Headaches, low energy, dehydration, nausea and vomiting, inflammation, and low blood sugar are some symptoms of a hangover. The following oils have been used to ease this discomfort.

  • • Grapefruit
  • • Sandalwood
  • • Lavender
  • • Peppermint
  • • Lemon
  • • Rosemary
  • • Eucalyptus
  • • Ginger

Use your diffuser, apply topically or add to your bath (in a diluted form).

13. Hair and Scalp Health

If you check your shampoo and conditioner bottles you may see essential oils listed as an ingredient. This isn’t a surprise when you consider all the wonderful benefits of essential oils, is it?

Some examples of essential oils that are great for your hair are: Chamomile, Clary Sage, Geranium, Lavender, Rosemary and Sandalwood.

Essential oils should never be applied directly to your skin or scalp, always use a carrier oil. Carrier oils are used to dilute the essential oils and help “carry” them into the skin. Some carrier oils are great for your hair and scalp. Some wonderful examples are Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Moroccan argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Olive Oil.

14. Cost Effective

Since I use essential oils most often as a proactive measure (boosting my immune system), I save money on taking trips to the doctor, no missed work time and no prescription costs.

In most cases the price of an essential oil costs less than what I would pay for a prescription. Very little oil is required due to the potency and the expiry date lasts for many months if not years.

Think of the money that could be saved when making your own DIY cleaning products and body mists. Save on sleep aids and head ache medications. Creating special gifts for friends and family will help the pocket book too!

Essential oils can definitely save you money in the long run. 🙂

15. Antibiotic and Antimicrobial

Thanks for sticking with me, have I convinced you to start using essential oils yet? 🙂 If not, maybe this last point will convince you.

I’m sure most of us have heard about how our current antibiotics are gradually becoming resistant to bacteria. This is kind of scary right? Research is being conducted to find compounds that will stand up to these resistant bacteria and essential oils are being investigated! Peppermint and Tea Tree oil have been extensively investigated for their antimicrobial effects and the results have been positive and further research is forthcoming. Of course, these studies require time and money, so the process is ongoing. But it is good news!

If you would like to read more detailed information, I have provided additional links here.

In Conclusion

It is my hope that one day, natural remedies such as essential oils will be used in combination with the amazing modern medications we have now. I would love to see the best of both old and new ideas meshed together to create a truly effective health system.

Well, this has been a long article and I sure hope it has provided some food for thought. Essential oils are more than just something that makes your home smell great. They are nature’s gift of medicine. With that being said, essential oils should be treated with caution and common sense. Like medication of any kind, we must be mindful of what we choose to use and how we choose to use it.

Well, I hope everyone has a fantastic week ahead! Don’t forget to come back next week for the conclusion of Aromatherapy Essential Oils – 30 Reasons You Should Be Using Them (Part 2 of 2). I will be sharing 15 more reasons I think everyone should embrace the practice of aromatherapy!
