How to Use Different Essential Oils
Ways to Use Different Essential Oils
If you are new to using essential oils, you might be a little stuck on what each one of
them does. Here is a simple guide that shows you the top essential oils and how to use
Roman Chamomile – First up is roman chamomile, which is the more common type of
chamomile that is used. There is also German chamomile, but that isn’t as good for
healing properties. Roman chamomile is great for relieving muscle cramps, reducing
stress and anxiety, and providing natural anti-inflammatory properties.
Peppermint – Peppermint essential oil is the most popular of the mint oil varieties, and
has lots of benefits as well. You should use peppermint oil when you want better focus
and to be more alert, have a burn on your skin, or are looking to get help with digestion
or allergy problems.
Frankincense – Next up is frankincense. This might have a silly name (often combined
with myrrh), but it really does have amazing healing powers. With frankincense
essential oil, use it to boost your immune system and help with skin conditions that
Jasmine – Jasmine is a beautiful flower, but also a wonderful essential oil to add to
your collection. It has a very sweet smell and is often combined with lavender,
geranium, and rose essential oils. Use it when you want to relieve depression, reduce
pain from childbirth, and help with tension.
Geranium – Geranium is another excellent essential oil you should use on a regular
basis. With this essential oil, it is perfect for PMS and hormonal imbalance, especially
when added to your bath for relieving those PMS symptoms. You can also use
geranium for nerve pain. Geranium can be used as an aromatherapy oil in a diffuser or
added to different body products.
Lavender – Lastly, there is lavender essential oil. This is best when you want stress or
anxiety relief, to relax and unwind, or take a calming bath. Lavender can also be used
for anti-inflammatory properties, as a natural deodorant, and to help with a cold or flu.
This is good when added to your bath water, or when using it in a cream or lotion that is
applied to your skin.
