Why We Love Essential Oils!
It is a well-known fact that essential oils have been used for centuries in a variety of cultures for health and medicinal purposes. The uses for essential oils can range from household cleaning products, natural medicine treatments, aromatherapy, and personal skin care and anti-ageing products. An essential oil is made from extracting or distilling various parts of bark, peels, resins, roots, leaves, flowers, and plants. There are many indications that ancient societies such as the Egyptians and Jews used and made these essential oils by taking a particular plant and then soaking it in an oil. After the plant had been soaked for a period of time in the oil they then would filter it through a linen bag.
Essential oils have many benefits that come from their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-microbial properties. One of the reasons why essential healing oils have risen in popularity is because they perform as a natural medicine and without any harmful side effects. There are many different ways to use essential oils and this article will help you to understand some of them.
Essential oils are great for various uses around the home including cleaning. For example, if you take three drops of tea tree oil and three drops of lemon oil and mix it with a few ounces of warm water it will provide you with a natural disinfectant that you can use to spray on your counter-tops. This will prevent harmful bacteria from building up. You can also add 10 to 20 drops of your favorite oil in each load of your washing which will provide your clothes with a beautiful scent.
Have you ever purchased any of the chemical mosquito repellents. Many people are allergic to these repellents and others do not like the smell that seems to linger on forever. You can make a natural mosquito repellent by combining one drop of citronella oil, lemongrass oil, and eucalyptus oil with a teaspoon of coconut oil. This will make a chemically free, natural bug spray that can be rubbed onto the skin to prevent mosquito bites.
If your home includes members who enjoy playing sports then everyone will appreciate doing away with the awful smell of a sports gear bag. This awful smell can be eliminated by placing two drops of lemon oil and tea tree oil into a quart of warm water. Then take this solution and mix it with 4 tablespoons of baking soda. Use the solution to wipe down any sports gear or sports bags.
If you want to breathe fresh, clean air then simply spray some diffused cinnamon essential oil into the air of your home. Diffused cinnamon essential oil has many anti-microbial properties. At the same time you can make a family treat by using coconut oil, dark chocolate, peppermint oil, and raw honey. The result will be homemade peppermint patties that will be a delight for every member of the entire family.
Taking 5 to 10 drops of your favorite essential oil and putting it into your vacuum bag will also help to purify the air in your home. You can also use four drops of melaleuca oil and eucalyptus oil in a 16 ounce spray bottle to eliminate scum on your shower curtain. Also, if you have any mold in your bathroom you can add tea tree oil into a diffuser which will kill the mold and other pathogens that are floating in the air.
For anyone who has a carpet in the home you can clean the carpet by taking 20 drops of tea tree oil and mixing it with Borax. This will make an excellent homemade carpet powder. At the same time, you can mix cloves oil and orange essential oil in a spray bottle and spray it throughout the home to kill harmful pests on contact.
If you’re about to lay out on the back porch and get a suntan then save yourself some money and make your own homemade sunscreen. You can do this by mixing zinc oxide, shea butter, coconut oil, helichrysum oil and lavender essential oil. Take the solution and put it into a squeeze bottle and voilà, you have homemade toxic-free sunscreen.
To have that clean kitchen smell simply add a few drops of citrus essential oil or cinnamon along with a few drops of clove oil into a slow, simmering pan of water. This will eliminate any smelly cooking odors from things such as fish. While you are doing this make yourself a cup of mint tea by putting 12 drops of peppermint essential oil into whatever type of tea you enjoy. This will give your favorite tea a delightful minty flavor.
People understand the dangers of smoking but if you live in a home that has a smoker then you can eliminate the smoke smell by putting four drops of tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, and rosemary into a spray bottle. Spray the solution around the house and especially in areas where the smoker has performed this unhealthy habit.
Finally, you can use essential oils for making an assortment of gifts. You can make a baby shower gift by giving a new mother a wall diffuser complete with a lavender scent. The lavender oil will calm both the baby and the mother. Also, if you are attending a bridal shower you can make a “love potion” by combining sandalwood, cocoa, rose oil, and vanilla into an unscented lotion.
These are just a few suggestions for using essential oils around the home but as mentioned previously you can also use essential oils for relaxation. Essential oils are often used to help relieve tension, during a relaxation massage, when having a detox bath, when calming and upset child, to help improve depression, and when performing Pilates and yoga.
Essential oils are also beneficial when used for skin and beauty care by reducing cellulite, freshening the breath, making homemade deodorants and shampoos, strengthening nails, reducing wrinkles, healing dry cracked feet, relieving nausea, curing dandruff, and the list goes on. Yes, essential oils are even used as a natural medicine for migraines, burns, bruises, fever, sunburn, colds and so forth. Try a few essential oil experiments in your home and you will be amazed at the results from something so simple that has been used for centuries.
