I haven’t done a post about aromatherapy for a while. It’s time I remedied that.
I know it’s summer and I know you want to get out and enjoy the 5 minutes of good weather we have each year, and so do I. So, I’m going to keep this short and sweet and tell you the 5 oils I always make sure to have on hand and why.
Lavender Essential Oil
calms the nerves
relaxes the mind
helps minor skin burns heal faster
soothes menstrual cramps
relieves tension headaches
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
helps you breathe when you’re stuffy
speeds healing of colds
Rosemary Essential Oil
is mentally stimulating
Tea Tree Essential Oil
speeds healing of pimples
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil (Complete or Extra)
is a supposed aphrodisiac
helps regulate hormones (and aids pre- and perimenopausal symptoms)
That’s it. Two other reasons I’ve chosen these oils is that they’re all readily available online from reputable suppliers and they won’t break the bank.
So… if you’ve wanted to start your own essential oil kit but were a bit overwhelmed by all the possibilities, you’ve now got a good place to start.
