Essential oils have become very popular for people who are interested in natural health. They are simply concentrated oils that have both the characteristics and benefit of the plant from which they came. Here’s some of the three most common ways to use essential oils:
Aromatherapy is one of the easiest ways to take advantage of the power of essential oils. Inhaling the fragrance of oils has been shown to help improve mood, lift depression, and reduce the effects of stress. Some oils can also help to clear up congestion. (I use essential oils pretty extensively for mood management.)
For aromatherapy you can add oils to diffusers so that they fill the space. You can also add a little to a cotton ball and place it near you so that you get the benefits. Adding essential oils to lotions or a warm bath can also give you these benefits.
Topically You can also add essential oils to your skin. Essential oils will be absorbed quickly and can enter your bloodstream through your skin. They can even pass through the blood brain barrier, which is something that makes them very powerful.
Most essential oils need to be diluted with carrier oil, such as olive or coconut oils, before being added to the skin. You’ll find that a very small bottle of essential oil goes a long way because you only use a few drops at a time. (Be careful about sun exposure after applying. Some oils, particularly citrus can cause a nasty burn if you go out in the sun with them on.) Essential oils can be added to lotions and other body products in order to get their healing benefits as well as their beauty benefits.
Household Cleaning Having a clean home is essential for good health, but many cleaning products have hazardous chemicals, which is concerning to people with chronic illness and can even pose a danger to your health.
Essential oils can be powerful at killing germs and when added to castile soap or vinegar they can be perfect for household cleaning. You can have a home that looks, feels, and smells naturally clean and fresh without adding anything harmful to your environment.
Aroma Foundry Essential Oil Review
I’ve been using essential oils for about five years. I’ve used them from a variety of sources, including the big MLM companies. I’m not really brand loyal and am always looking to try something new so when Aroma Foundry reached out to me to try their essential oils, I was happy to oblige.
Aroma Foundry is a Santa Barbara, California company founded by a team with a goal to create quality all natural products. They pride themselves on putting the customer first and personally all of the products before making them available to the public. They promise no synthetic additives, all oils are 100% pure. Additionally, they promise 100% transparency about the origin of the oils and work to source the oils from their native environment.
My oils were shipped in a pretty, custom recycled box. The bottles are dark blue which helps to preserve product integrity and there was no spillage. I received grapefruit (my favorite!) lemon, tangerine and citronella to try out this summer in mosquito country to make bug spray.
I really liked all the oils that were sent to me and feel that they are of very high quality. They had a clean, natural note to them that wasn’t perfumey or overwhelming. Citrus oils make me happy and I’ll definitely be using these in my diffuser especially during yoga practice. Bottles are a 15 ml size and very reasonably priced.
