Benefits Of Essential Oils et Aromatherapy

Essential oils are compound extracted from plants (flower, herb, and tree parts, like bark, roots, peels, and petals). The cells that give a plant its fragrant smell are its “essence.” When an essence is extracted from a plant, it becomes an essential oil. The unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic essential oils derived from plants for the purpose of enhancing the well being of ones physical and psychological health. By inhaling essential oils, nerves in the nose trigger powerful brain responses like your limbic system (which plays a role in your emotions) and impact your hypothalamus (creating a feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin); all of that would send healing to the body.

Topical application allows essential oils to quickly enter the bloodstream by being absorbed through skin tissue.

What are the main benefits of Aromatherapy?

  • Aromatherapy can reduce pain, as the oils can be absorbed through the skin. Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory properties that can prevent the development of certain illnesses, it can improve the immune system as essential oils that are breathed in enter the lungs and are then absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Essential oils helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and can be used as a part of your diet to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
  • Essential oils improve the mood and set a positive atmosphere. Scents are powerful stimuli that directly enter the brain, triggering intense emotional responses. By inhaling essential oils, your brain will signal certain emotions that can leave you feeling energized, optimistic and hopeful. These essential oils can be added to a hot bath or used in an oil diffuser.
  • Essential oils have many uses not only aromatherapy, it can be used as a natural mosquito repellent and extending the shelf life of food.
  • Essential oils has been shown to improve the sleep quality of people.
  • Essential oils might ease stress, anxiety and depression – very useful nowadays with all the uncertainties
  • Essential oils also can ease the side effect of cancer treatment

How to use Essential oils?

With a diffuser: it is a device that disperses essential oils into the air. There are several types of essential oil diffusers that you can use for this, like ceramic diffuser, electric, ultrasonic …

With a nebulizer: since a nebulizing diffuser does not use water to dilute the essential oils, it is a much more potent therapeutic aromatic experience. No heat is required so the natural chemical structure of the essential oil is not altered in any way. Because the diffuser uses glass the essential oil never comes into contact with plastic so each particle of the essential oil reaches you in the natural state and provides you with all of the natural therapeutic benefits.

You can simply inhale: the easiest method of inhalation is to open a bottle of pure essential oil and inhale deeply a few times. But don’t let the undiluted oil touch your skin. For the steam method you’ll need a bowl of hot water and a towel. Place the bowl on a table and add a few drops of essential oils. Place a towel over your head and the bowl. Close your eyes and deeply inhale the steam for several minutes. Repeat a few times throughout the day. Some essential oils can be dangerous and you shouldn’t use it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Not all the oils is suitable for small children and pets as well.

Dry evaporation: This method only requires some type of dry material such as a cotton ball or fabric. Add a few drops of essential oil to the material. Hold this to your nose and inhale or allow the scent to disperse naturally. You can add the material to the vents in your car, your shirt collar, or your pillowcase. You can also buy a diffuser necklace pendant, I got one at Christmas and it is a brilliant idea to smell fresh all day!

On your skin: You can use essential oils for skincare and massage in a variety of ways. Dilute essential oils with a carrier oil and apply the mixture to your skin. Follow a recipe or your intuition to make a rollerball blend so that you have your favorite combination on hand. Carrier oils will reduce skin sensitivity and also increase absorption through skin tissue

Types of carrier oils:

  • olive oil
  • coconut oil
  • avocado oil ( this is the one I use 🙂 )
  • almond oil
  • jojoba oil

Focus on areas of muscular pain, tightness, and tension. You can also gently rub the oil into pressure points such as your temples, wrists, and third eye. You can also use the oils to massage your feet and place a few drops around your nose. Another option is to add essential oils to your favorite cosmetic products, such as toners, serums, and muscle rubs. But always take care to dilute the essential oil in a carrier oil first.

In a bath or shower: while it’s best to store essential oils outside of the bathroom due to heat and humidity, you’ll find a lot of uses for them here. You can add a few drops of essential oils to your shampoo, conditioner, or body wash. To inhale essential oils while you shower, add a few drops to the shower walls and inhale deeply as you shower; Happy mood while showering and also it is very good for the sinus. Or add a few drops of diluted essential oil to a warm washcloth that can be used for inhalation and to gently exfoliate your body. Dilute a few drops of essential oils with a carrier oil before adding it to your bathwater.

In a humidifier: If you choose to add essential oils to your humidifier, check with the manufacturer’s directions. Some ultrasonic humidifier manufacturers do not recommend the use of essential oils. To use essential oils in a humidifier, add a few drops into the water tank. The oil will naturally vaporize throughout the room. For best results, use a cool mist and clean your humidifier regularly.

I have been using Essential oils for many years and use it almost daily. Check our Single Mantra Essential oils and our Blend Mantra Essential oil:

Frankincense (Beswellia Carterii or Boswellia sacra tree)

The name Frankincense is derived from the term “franc encens” which is French for “high quality incense.” “franc” means “pure” and “encens” comes from “to burn.” It was considered a “pure incense” and known to be the most desirable of the incenses. The aroma is woody, earthy and spicy.

Boswellia sacra tree
Tear-shaped droplets

Frankincense is usually grown in the dry, mountainous regions of India, Africa and the Middle East. Frankincense essential oil is made from milky white sap that is secreted by the Frankincense tree. When the tree’s sap droplets dry and harden into tear-shapes on the tree, this process takes a few days. The dry droplets are scraped off of the tree to be made into an essential oil. The earliest known source is the country of Oman. They shipped the oil to regions like the Mediterranean, India and china for thousands of years.

Making perfume with Frankincense
Burning Frankincense

In the past they used to burn the incense in sacred places and in religious rituals, there was a powerful aroma and white smoke coming from the Frankincense when its burned. It was used in perfumes, cosmetics and Egyptian mummification methods. It is believed its fragrance will bring good health, cleanse the home and purify clothing.In Ayurvedic medicine, Frankincense is referred to as “dhoop” and is used to soothe wounds, relieve joint discomfort, balance hormones in women and purify the air.

Frankincense essential oil

How the essential oil is extracted.

The tear-shaped droplets are crushed into powder and placed in an oil bath. After it undergoes steam distilation or CO2 extraction, it makes the essential oil.

Lemon (Citrus Limon)

Lemon plant

Lemons and lemon essential oils have been used in ayurvedic medicine to treat a wide spectrum of health conditions for at least 1,000 years. It is a flowering plant that belongs to the Rutaceae family. The oil is extracted from the peel of fresh lemons using a “cold pressing” process that pricks and rotates the peel as oil is released. Always use a carrier oil when using this essential oil, oils like: almond oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Lemon essential oil can make your skin sensitive to sunlight. When you use the oil on your skin try to stay out of sunlight for at least 8 hours and wear sunscreen when going outside. Always use glass bottles or containers with citrus oils because the oil breaks down plastic bottles.

Lemon essential oil has many benefits such as:

Eucalyptus Essential Oil and Its Benefits

Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia. Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Greek and other European styles of medicine have incorporated it into the treatment of a range of conditions for thousands of years. There are 400 different species of eucalyptus. Eucalyptus globulous is also known as Blue Gum, it is also the main source of eucalyptus oil used globally. The oil is used as an antiseptic, a perfume, an ingredient in cosmetics, a flavoring and in dental preparations.

How the oil is made:

Leaves are distilled to extract the oil, which is colorless liquid with a strong, sweet, woody scent. It contains flavonoids and tannins; flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants and tannins may help to reduce inflammation.

DO NOT TAKE ORALLY! Although eucalyptus oil has many benefits, the undiluted form can be toxic if you take it orally. Just 2-3 milliliters can trigger dizziness, drowsiness and loss of muscle control. Five milliliters or more can lead to nervous system shut down or even coma. Always dilute the oil with a carrier oil before use.

How the Eucalyptus plant look like:

The eucalypti grow rapidly, and many species attain great height. The giant gum tree, or mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans), of Victoria and Tasmania, is one of the largest species and attains a height of about 90 meters and a circumference of 7.5 meters. Many species continually shed the dead outermost layer of bark in flakes, whereas other species have thick textured bark. The leaves are leathery and often hang vertically; most species are evergreen.

The flower petals cohere to form a cap when the flower expands. The capsule fruit is surrounded by a woody cup-shaped receptacle and contains numerous minute seeds. Possibly the largest fruits from 5 to 6 cm in diameter are from  Silverleaf eucalyptus. The leaf glands of many species, especially black peppermint tree and Tasmanian Blue Gum, contain a volatile aromatic oil known as eucalyptus oil. Tasmanian Blue Gum, northern gray ironbark, and other species yield what is known as Botany Bay kino, an astringent dark reddish resin, obtained in a semifluid state from incisions made in the tree trunk.

Eucalyptus is believed to have a number of medicinal properties, although not all of them have been confirmed by research.

  1. Antimicrobial properties: By the end of the 19th century, eucalyptus oil was used in most hospitals in England to clean urinary catheters. Research is starting to back this practice up.
  2. Colds and respiratory problems: Herbal remedies recommend using fresh leaves in a gargle to relieve a sore throat, sinusitis and bronchitis. Eucalyptus oil vapor acts as a decongestant when inhaled. It is a popular home remedy for colds and bronchitis, a number of cough medications include eucalyptus oil.
  3. Dental care: The antibacterial and antimicrobial potential of eucalyptus has been harnessed for use in some mouthwash and dental preparations. Eucalyptus is active in fighting bacteria that cause tooth decay and periodontitis. An example can be in chewing gum or mouthwash.
  4. Insect and rodent repellent: Eucalyptus is an effective insect repellent and insecticide. Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) is recommended by some as an insect repellant; It is effective at keeping mosquitos away, it is also effective at keeping rats or rodents away. Keep them away with a eucalyptus oil solution, spray it regularly in places where you see them. Many of the chemicals in it, especially 1,8- cineole, deal a powerful punch to pests. The solution is also kinder to the environment than harsh chemicals. EPA’s list of effective, safe insect repellants is a short one, for both chemical and natural methods. A special kind “oil of lemon eucalyptus” has a chemical called PMD that shoos away mosquitos and other bugs.
  5. Stimulating immune system:Researchers found that eucalyptus oil could enhance the immune system’s phagocytic response to pathogens (white blood cells) in a rat model. Phagocytosis is a process where the immune system consumes and destroys foreign particles.
  6. Ease arthritis pain: Eucalyptus is a key ingredient in some topical analgesics. These are pain relievers you can apply directly to your skin, such as sprays and creams. It works by bringing a cold or warm sensation that takes your mind off the pain.
  7. Household grime fighter: The oil is an active ingredient in more than 30 cleansing products approved by the EWG, a non profit environmental research group. In one of the studies, it removed bacteria including E.coli from the steel surfaces.
  8. Loose head lice: Eucalyptus and tea tree oil together as a treatment did two times better than the Pyrethin treatment. It killed 100% of the lice and eggs, in only one single dose while most treatments need several doses. The tests on the skin showed no irritation for adults or children.

Why choose a nebulizing diffuser?

Why choose Nebulizing diffuser instead of a water diffuser?

💠 Since a nebulizing diffuser does not use water to dilute the essential oils, it is a much more potent therapeutic aromatic experience.

💠 No heat is required so the natural chemical structure of the essential oil is not altered in any way.

💠 Because the diffuser uses glass the essential oil never comes into contact with plastic so each particle of the essential oil reaches you in the natural state and provides you with all of the natural therapeutic benefits.

So how does a nebulizing diffuser work?

🌀When an air current is forced through a small tube, the velocity is increased while the pressure at the exit point is reduced.

🌀That difference in pressure creates a kind of suction that causes the essential oils within a separate glass tube to rise upwards.

🌀As the essential oil rises, a stream of pressurized air hits the essential oil and causes it to atomize into micro-particles that fill the glass reservoir.

🌀Once in the glass reservoir, those tiny particles rise up and are emitted out of the glass cap in a (water-less) mist that is released into the local environment.

🌀The remaining particles of essential oil return to the bottom of the diffuser creating a cycle that will repeat until the oil has been used up completely.

We have the Set of Mantra Essential oils and The Nebulizing Diffuser for a special Price: available now until December 25th 2019 ( midnight PST)
