11 Ways Essential Oils Can Benefit Your Every Day Life November 23, 2017 – Posted in: Blog
Maybe you’ve heard of them because of our Aromatherapy Bracelets. Maybe you’ve heard because they’re all the rage right now from holistic healing to spa treatments.
Whether you’ve heard the buzz or are new to the information, I interviewed Lisa Jadis of Young Living Oils to give us the scoop on why essential oils are so popular, and more importantly, how they can benefit your every day life.
1. What are some of the largest benefits of using Essential Oils (EO)?
Pure therapeutic essential oils can elevate your mood, help you relax or sleep, feel more focused and creative and increase your energy. It’s very important to note that while they do not heal, they do support the body so it can heal itself.
2. How fast do EO’s work?
It really is incredible. The molecules reach the brain in 22 seconds. Two minutes later they will be found in the bloodstream, and within 20 minutes they will affect every cell in the body!
3. What is your go-to EO and why?
Peppermint is my go-to. It’s so versatile. It gives me energy and makes me feel more alert. It helps when I have digestive issues and I love rubbing it on my temples instead of grabbing for an aspirin..
4. What is the best oil or oil combination for stress relief? Do they differ from ones you use during the day or at night?
Lavender and Frankincense are calming but my favorite is my Stress Away roll on.. it has a nice scent and it blows my mind how quickly I feel calmer even when life gets hectic.
5. What are the best oils for a beginner to use?
Young Living makes this pretty simple by offering a Premium starter kit which contains all of the most popular oils that support a healthy lifestyle such as Peppermint, Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense to name a few..plus a diffuser so you can create amazing combinations to add scent and eliminate toxins in the air.
6. What is the best oil for preventing the cold/flu?
Thieves is a great oil to support your immune system.
7. Which oil gives the benefit of increased energy?
Peppermint is wonderful for increased energy and focus as are the citrus oils such as lemon, orange and grapefruit.
8. Which is the best oil to recommend for people who experience migraines?
Lavender has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which could help, and those people who are in tune to their bodies and know the signs can try to avert them with Peppermint, Lemon or Lavender.
9. Is there a specific diffuser that you love?
I love my Aria diffuser as it makes me feel like I’m at the Spa..it plays calming music and can be connected to my playlist, it changes colors and it even has a remote.
10. Can essential oils be used for cleaning?
YES! Essential Oils are one of the best smelling, naturally antibacterial options for cleaning. You can use in your laundry, to sanitize your kitchen and/or bathroom. You can use lemon essential oil to remove stickiness, for degreasing stains as well as freshen the air.
My favorite is the Young Living Thieves Household cleaner, infused with the oils from one of their most popular blends. Using this one product with natural formulas that work hard and smell amazing you can replace MULTIPLE products that contain harsh chemicals! Just think about pets that walk around floors that have been cleaned with these chemical laden products and then lick their paws…NOT GOOD!
11. How can EO’s help my pet?
Essential Oils can be massaged into achey muscles. Also, many dogs get stressed when they’re around new people or situations they’re not familiar with, during thunder storms, or at holiday time. A few drops of lavender on their collar could be very calming or massaging lavender behind their ears works wonders.
Our Chelsea Bond Jewelry aromatherapy bracelets are a go-to for those who love the spa-on-the-go experience. Simply add 2-3 drops of essentials oils to the center lava bead of your bracelet, stack, mix and match colors and scents to customize your experience. Love lavender + mint? Add drops of each to two different bracelets for zen and tranquility during a busy day.
