Top 3 Most Affordable Essential Oils You Must Have
According to history Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years. They may have not looked or felt the same way as they do today due to lack of technology, but the concept was similar. Plants like frankincense, myrrh, and hyssop were highly treasured and even used as currency. Using plants for medical purposes is not a new concept, but for reason our culture tends to think of it as rare and rebellious. The reason why essential oils are not used as a common treatment by physicians is because they cannot be patented and therefore drug companies will not waste their money studying them. However, for your peace of mind and own education you can find reliabe research on essential oils here.
Whether you are an essential oil lover or not, these 3 essential oils are must have's! They are versatile and affordable. These will be a great start to using essential oils and support the natural function of your body.
You have probably already heard a lot about Peppermint, who hasn't? Peppermint has the most refreshing and invigorating aroma. Peppermint essential oil is used to flavor candies and other foods. Peppermint is also used in beauty products like lotions and perfumes. One of my favorite applications of this oil is to apply it for a cool, tingling sensation pre- o post-workout massage or a midday neck rub. A popular use of this oil is to simply inhale it's pleasing aroma, believe me you will feel so awakened.
I was skeptical of lavender essential oil when I first bought it. Lavender reminded me of grandma bar soaps and perfume, it sounded overwhelming and way too floral for my taste. However, the natural essential oil is nothing like the artificial fragrance which most of us are used to. You will find lavender essential oil to be calming and relaxing. Most of us love using this oil for a better good night rest in the diffuser or as a pillow spray. Lavender is also a favorite for my skin. It is gentler and soft and is great mixed diluted with coconut oil, lotion or aloe vera.
Lemon essential will quickly become a favorite, especially if you already love the fruit. Lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the fruit's rind. It has a pleasant, fresh and citrus scent that is amazing in your diffuser. Lemon essential oil can also be used as a natural "goo-gone," cleaner or as flavoring. My favorite ways to use lemon include diffusing as well as in my water for on the go moments.
