Essential oils can do some amazing things, all from the power of nature. Whether you need help sleeping, want to relax and soothe a headache, or need help recovering from muscle soreness, we’re proud to say, “There’s an oil for that!”
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the true essences of a plant. They are the concentrations of the life forces that have allowed the plant to evolve and survive over the thousands of years that it has been on this planet.
Their antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties act as natural tension alternatives without the negative side effects you may find in over-the-counter aids.
How Were Essential Oils Discovered?
Essential oils have been used for many thousands of years in various cultures, in numerous ways, including for medicinal, religious, and health purposes.
It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when essential oils were initially discovered and when they began to be used, but the earliest evidence is from Lascaux, France where scientists discovered cave paintings dated as far back as 18,000 B.C.E. These paintings suggested human knowledge of plants having healing properties.
The history of essential oils is also very rich in Egypt, where evidence shows Egyptians have been using them as early as 4,500 B.C.E. They transformed plant oils and pastes into pills, powders, suppositories, medicinal cakes, and ointments.
What are Their Benefits?
Spa and Relaxation: Essential oils can be used for massage therapy, detox baths, improving sleep, and to enhance yoga and pilates sessions.
Home Cleaning: Essential oils make excellent solutions for all-purpose surface cleaners, produce wash, room and vacuum fresheners, and deodorizers.
Skin and Beauty: Many skin and beauty DIY recipes use essential oils, which can help with strengthening nails, freshening breath, creating natural body care products, and reducing the appearance of cellulite.*
Natural Tension Alternatives: If you prefer a more homeopathic route for your well-being, essential oils are often used to create solutions that help with headache relief, alleviating burns, boosting the immune system, and reducing muscle tension.
