Essential oils have become a booming industry in the last couple of years. You'll see made with essential oils on packaging for all sorts of products, from bodycare to haircare to skin care. If you are unfamiliar with essential oils, you may be wondering why the sudden popularity and what's the big deal with these oils? What does this mean to me and how do essential oils promote a healthy lifestyle?
Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that are created from either cold-pressing or steam distilling plant matter like leaves, twigs, berries, or peels. Essential oils are a natural product, containing no synthetics or preservatives and are used in natural products because they are not a chemical. Since essential oils are natural, they are great for people who are chemical sensitive. Using products like Plantlife's that do not use fragrance oils do not cause allergic reactions or irritations that some people are normally affected by with fake synthetics.
Whether or not you have allergies or reactions from synthetic products, essential oils can promote healthy living because you are no longer putting a synthetic on or around you, eliminating stress that the body endures when trying to process a synthetic. What goes on the body, get absorbed into the body. When using a natural product with essential oils, you are no longer absorbing chemicals into your body! Your body naturally detoxes, so helping it out by using less synthetic based products makes it that much easier for the body to do it's job. When getting rid of bad for you products, people usually start to feel better right away! It is amazing how many toxic products you use every day that could be exchanged with a natural one; from household cleaners, to shampoo, to makeup, lotions, and even your facial products!
Essential oils also have therapeutic properties from the plant itself and have been used throughout the ages for purposes like wound disinfectants, skin issues like dandruff or acne, and even helping to prevent sickness or encourage recovery from minor illnesses. Depending on the oil's properties, there are oils that can help with insomnia, stress, anxiety, or even help improve memory. Each oil is different when it comes to what it is good for so make sure to do research on each oil before using. We recommend checking with your aromatherapist before self-treating, but some people do rely on essential oils combined with healthy habits like diet and exercise to feel better inside and out!
