  • Fennel
  • Clary sage
  • Lemon
  • Peppermint
  • Tea-tree
  • Rosemary

What are the benefits of essential oils

There are many therapeutic and healing benefits from using essential oils, but today, we are only focusing on three basic essential oils. Our favourite essential oils that we love to use are: jasmine, lavender and eucalyptus.

JASMINE: It is the king of essential oils and one of the most expensive. Its warm and seductive smell can have a positive, uplifting effect to our mood and senses. It is also said that jasmine can be used as a natural remedy to help fight stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, menstrual cramps, menopausal symptoms.

LAVENDER: It helps with stress relief and amplifies body relaxation. Lavender can improve your quality of sleep and ease a pounding headache, like a migraine.

EUCALYPTUS: Its therapeutic benefits help with facilitating easy breathing, clearing your nasal passages, especially when you are suffering from sinus congestion. Eucalyptus also helps with boosting circulation to the brain and giving a sense of vitality and rejuvenation. And last but not least, it works great for driving away unwanted insects from your house.

HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS

The most common way to use essential oils is aromatically, either with a candle or an oil diffuser, or a bowl of hot water, where you add a few drops of oil in the water. It will dilute and unlock its aromas into the room.

Note: Before you use any type of essential oil, please consult your doctor, especially if you have any allergies, or you are pregnant.
