6 Underrated Essential Oils That You Need in Your Life
Essential oils have recently gained a lot of popularity in the world of natural and healthy living, and they truly deserve it! Up until now, they were sort of underrated, but now, their applications in health and wellness are well applauded worldwide.
While lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus and lemon oils, among others, have received their fair share of the limelight, there are a few others that are often overlooked, but have been found to be exceptionally good at what they do. It’s time to discover those sidekicks and what they do! Read on…
Valerian Essential Oil
Valerian oil is one of the best essential oils to help support sleep disorders. While it doesn’t cure or treat these disorders, it does help ease the symptoms associated with them. Many natural health enthusiasts support its use in tackling feeling of stress and anxiety, and use it to calm the body and mind, thereby tackling stress associated conditions better.
Clove Essential Oil
Clove oil has been known for its ability to help provide soothing relief from toothache, and its topical application has worked wonders in curbing inflammation and swelling of the gums, thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties.
Neroli Essential Oil
Neroli essential oil may be a bit more expensive than other oils, but it has a huge list of benefits associated with its use. When applied topically (in the diluted form), neroli essential oil can help reduce the appearance of scars, promote skin repair and reduce/lighten the appearance of skin blemishes & scarring. When used in the diffuser, this oil can help calm the senses, making it a great option for those affected by stress and anxious feeling.
Grapefruit Essential Oil
Grapefruit essential oil has also been under-used, even though it packs in impressive healing powers, particularly when it comes to hair and scalp issues. Its application could help balance the oil production of the scalp, stimulate removal of toxins, remove the buildup of hair products on it and cleanse it thoroughly, leaving it squeaky clean.
Ginger Essential Oil
Ginger essential oil, extracted from the ginger root, packs in amazing anti-inflammatory properties, which when used as a massage oil, has the potential to help with feeling of indigestion, stomach cramps, morning sickness and nausea.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil
Carrot seed oil is another powerful essential oil which has antimicrobial properties, thanks to which, it has a cleansing action on the digestive tract, the liver, kidneys and the muscles. It has also been found to help repair and rejuvenate the skin, which is why, it can be used to help ease the symptoms of various skin conditions. Carrot seed essential oil is often found in DIY Suncreen Recipes, get recipe ideas here!
Making these essential oils a part of your everyday routine can help improve your overall health in many ways. So go ahead and explore, and make them a part of your life and reap the benefits of their use.
