5 Aromatherapy Oils You Should Have at Home
There are so many essential oils out there….Soulflower itself sells over 50. It does become a task for someone to decide which oil to use. I decided to list the 5 most important essential oils that you just cannot do without!
1.Lavender. Lavender oil has this yummy, fresh floral scent with a dash of sweetness and herby aroma. I find it completely intoxicating. On top of it smelling amazing, it is also the most versatile of all essential oils.
2. Peppermint. Peppermint oil has a very stimulating yet soothing aroma and is what I like to call “nature’s Icy Hot” due to its main constituent, menthol. This stuff is amazing.
3. Eucalyptus. This oil has a very fresh and clean aroma that is sure to open your airways up. Eucalyptus oil is anti-everything, and for once that’s a good thing. It is a natural antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. It is best used for respiratory problems like colds, coughs, asthma, and congestion in addition to wounds, muscle pain, mental exhaustion, dental care, and skin care. I love to drop a little of this in a hot bath when I am feeling congested; it’s a great natural way to clear my nasal passages up.
4. Lemon. With its uplifting and fresh scent, lemon oil can help get rid of bad vibes and increase concentration and mental awareness. It is also an antiseptic and antifungal making it a wonderful fix for scrapes, cuts, and other open wounds. Feeling less than inspired to get your flow on? Rub a few drops on your chest and throat while you set your intention and you’ll be flowin’ in no time!
5. Tea Tree. A widely popular form of alternative medicine, tea tree oil is awesome! Not only is tea tree oil’s astringent properties great for alleviating oily secretions of the skin – think oily face & scalp issues – but it also soothes minor wounds without irritation. I love to add a few drops to my shampoo prior to washing; it leaves my scalp squeaky clean.
