The benefits of essential oils

·

Essential oils, this, essential oils, that. What are they exactly and what are the benefits of essential oils? We clear it up for you. 

Essential oils have gained a lot of popularity and have been intimately linked with aromatherapy. However, essential oils have a wide range of uses outside aromatherapy, from perfumes to soap, toothpaste or food, suggesting that the benefits of essential oils can be more diverse than we even think.

Some essential oils are even used in non-toxic biopesticides or repellents since some plants contain compounds that repel insects and pests. For example, citronella oil is highly effective in repelling mosquitoes.

What is exactly an essential oil?

Essential oil is a very concentrated hydrophobic extract of a plant. The name “essential” derives from “essence”, as in essential oils contain the essence of the fragrance of the plant they are made from.

 

What are the benefits of essential oils?

When connected to aromatherapy, essential oils have been shown to have beneficial effects as a complementary therapy on long-term stress, anxiety, depressive states, and to help with relaxation and sleep. Some studies have even shown that some essential oils might have an effective action against respiratory pathogens

The benefits of essential oils vary from person to person: while some might use them only to provide a natural scent to their homes, some other use it as a complement to a natural, healthy lifestyle – like in relaxation aids.

Because essential oils are so concentrated and made from plants, they can cause an allergic reaction when in contact with the skin. However, essential oils that are not specifically made to be ingested or applied topically, should never be used as such.
