Essential Oils – What do you use them for?
It is no secret that essential oils are constantly moving up the ladder in many different industries: aroma therapy, fitness, makeup, and skin care — there are really just too many to name them all. Many people claim that they are not just products but an entire lifestyle change. I’m sure if you’re reading this, you know someone from your family that uses essential oils on a regular basis, and maybe it’s even you, yourself! Regardless of how obsessive you might be over them, almost everyone can say that they use some type of oil in some type of way: muscle aches, relaxation, stress relief, etc. Being in the contract manufacturing business, we had to make sure we offered our customers the ability to start an essential oil line at an affordable cost, which is why we offer private label essential oils. In this article, we want to share some of the neat ways people are using essential oils in their everyday lives.
Before we start:
Essential oils are NOT intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, and anything involved in this article is simply a suggestion and/or fun and interesting ways some people use essential oils.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s jump right into it!
If you talk to a medical professional, they might tell you that using essential oils for aromatherapy is going to be the best way to go. Choose your favorite oil and place it in a diffuser for a long distance reach. Some people put diluted oils directly onto their skin. Many claim that oils like Lavender, if diffused or applied to the skin (diluted), can help to promote relaxation, help with sleep, or help to relax skin flare-ups, like rashes.
2) SORE MUSCLES
For all of you active folks out there, I’m sure you know that crippling feeling of sore muscles after a strenuous workout, or maybe you simply slept on your arm or neck wrong. Rumor has it that some oils can help relieve muscle pain or help with inflammatory issues: Camphor, Clary Sage, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint, and even more!
3) SKIN CARE
Many have jumped to essential oils to ease the symptoms of certain skin conditions, such as dry skin or acne, but did you know that some people claim oils like Geranium can help to tighten your skin? We haven’t personally tried, but hey, if you’ve done your research and think it might work, go for it! Also, some say that Thyme, due to its antibacterial properties, can help stop pimples before you experience a full-on acne breakout.
4) SCALP TREATMENTS
Coconut oil has always seemed to pop up at the top of every list for moisturizing properties, whether for the face, body, or the scalp. There are people who claim that Tea Tree oil has helped with their itchy scalp or that Ylang Ylang has even helped stimulate hair growth.
5) HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS
As if essential oils don’t seem to be doing enough, people are taking them to the cleaning cabinets! Forget the lemon-scented bleach cleaners you buy at the store, some think that using the Lemon essential oil with a little bit of water can do the job just fine! I mean, it does contain antibacterial properties, so it wouldn’t hurt to try. It never takes much when it comes to mixing oils, as the scents are usually quite strong. You can even try Wild Orange oil for those tough grease stains on the stove and in your oven!
So, although the great debate of essential oil benefits is a constant one among folks, there is no telling what might work for you. If you’ve thought about starting your own line of essential oils because of the love you’ve found for them, give us a call and let’s get it started! (844) 822-1665
