3 Health Benefits of Essential Oils
Some people use essential oils as a holistic way to heal the body. When used appropriately, essential oils are environmentally friendly, easy to use and most importantly, non-toxic to people and pets.
Here are 3 health benefits of essential oils:
First-Aid: Many essential oils have antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties, which keep harmful bacteria, microbes and viruses from multiplying on wounds. One of our personal favorites is calendula oil, which is used in Real Purity’s Burn & Cold Sore Gel. Calendula oil (derived from the marigold flower) has tonic, sudorific, emmenagogic, and antispasmodic properties, but it is mainly used for skin care and treatment. Most particularly, its application can be helpful for everything from rashes and eczema to sore and inflamed wounds. For these reasons and others.
Headache Relief: Overactive, pain sensitive nerves can cause cluster headaches, migraines and tension headaches. If you are prone to headaches and want to try a natural solution, then essential oils might be a good tool for you specifically, peppermint oil.
According to Annie of Mighty Nest, peppermint oil is effective as a headache treatment because its primary component, menthol, acts as a local anesthetic. If you want to incorporate products with peppermint oil into your daily routine, then it might be time to try using Real Purity’s Wild Mint Toothpaste or our Natural Men’s Stick Deodorant.
Immunity Booster: Several essential oils are natural antimicrobial and antiviral agents, which means that some essential oils are able to protect the body's immune system. According to Organic Facts, for instance, grapefruit oil provides immune system protection via its wealth in Vitamin C and antioxidants. Wondering where you can soak up some grapefruit oil? Take a chance on Real Purity’s Roll-On Deodorant, our Women’s Stick Deodorant, or our refreshing Facial Scrub.
When using essential oils for any reason, remember that many are not edible and they can be irritating to the skin when applied directly. Instead, use these essential oils by mixing them with a carrier oil, such as almond oil, jojoba oil and vegetable oil, or by diffusing them with a scent diffuser.
