What are this winter's essential oils?
Winter is coming. And with it, is bringing its share load of inconvenience. And since 2020 seems to be the year of "nothing like usual", we decided it was time to take matter onto our hands!
So here are the Top 5 Essential Oils you can turn to this season to help you heal.
This essential oil is one of our favorite. It is widely known for its many therapeutic benefits.
Tea Tree oil is great for fighting viral and bacterial infections. Originating in Australia, the Malaleuca tree's bark look like sheets of paper. These sheets are distilled to make the essential oil.
The name Tea Tree comes from Captain Cook whose sailors used the tea tree leaves to infuse in their teas.
The tea Tree essential oil is safe to use on children (3 years old and above), to treat infections such as lice, scabies and ringworms.
For adults, it can for example be used to treat acne, boils as well as vaginal infections added with your intimate shower gel.
Last but not least in this Covid-19 era, it is particularly effective to sanitise the air and get rid of insects. A real winner!
The sweet orange essential oil is indeed sweet. its scent is light and soft, while its therapeutic benefits are impressively strong.
Do not confuse it with the bitter orange essential oil which is way more toxic and photosensitive.
The sweet orange helps reduce anxiety and stress levels for kids and adults. It is also recommended to use when experiencing digestive disorders, heartburns and constipation.
Ceylon Cinnamon is undoubtedly the strongest of essential oils listed here. Its scent is powerful, so are its benefits.
Previously widely used to show one's economical and social rank, the Ceylon cinnamon is known for its ability to fight both bacterias and viruses! I'm telling you, it's a big girl we got over here!
You can use it to treat influenza and fatigue but also for abdominal discomfort.
The thym linalol is widely used in the kitchen in the South of France. The aromatic herb gives this beautiful smell and taste to the food.
However, it also has some hidden properties. The Thyme linalol contains a molecule, the linalol which is known for being beneficial for:
- bronchitis, coughs
- warts, psoriasis
We always want to keep the best for last!
The lavender essential oil is by far our favorite. Why? because it can be used on everyone (babies, kids, adults and seniors) with caution.
The true lavender or officinal lavender or fine lavender - too many names for one same essential oil - is different from the other types of lavender as these are neurotoxic and irritating to the skin.
The fine lavender is know for its analgesic, healing, calming and soothing properties. It helps with migraines, wounds, itches and restlessness.
All in all, this essential oil is a must have in any first aid kit out there!
