Best Essential Oils for Health and Wellness

If you’ve been reading my posts, you know that I use the best essential oils for health in nearly all my cleaning supplies, daily skin care, and I incorporate them into my natural health. Essential oils are more than just smelling nice – there are many health benefits of essential oils for your body and your home.

We always try to solve an issue at home or with our health using essential oils before calling the doctor or ordering a product. There are normally oils we have that we can combine with inexpensive ingredients to fix whatever we need to do.

Some of my favorite ways to use essential oils are:

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are usually made by distillation to make the natural oils in a plant substance very concentrated. It takes an enormous amount of plant material to make just a small amount of essential oils. For this reason, they are very expensive. It only takes a few drops of these essential oils to have a powerful effect. Most essential oils are not used directly on the skin. Most are either inhaled or applied in a carrier oil. Sometimes the oils are put into a bath.

What is Therapeutic Grade?

The potential danger of an essential oil is generally relative to its level or grade of purity. Many essential oils are designed exclusively for their aroma-therapeutic quality; these essential oils generally should not be applied directly to the skin in their undiluted or “neat” form. Some can cause severe irritation, provoke an allergic reaction and, over time, prove hepatotoxic. Non-therapeutic grade essential oils are never recommended for topical or internal use.

When I first started using herbs and essential oils, I honestly wasn’t crazy about lavender. I loved all the Herbal Medicine Remedies you could make with lavender, but I didn’t like the scent itself. Needless to say, it grew on me. Now I can’t get enough of it. There are so many Healing Benefits of Lavender.

My kids are all about bath bombs these days. They make really great holiday gifts as well as birthday gifts for hard-to-buy-for people like teenage girls! Did you know that they are so easy to make? I love finding new DIY Bath Bomb Recipe Idea to try out for natural skin care!

I have been struggling with my skin since I can remember, and getting older hasn’t helped any. This is why I research herbs and plants so much so I can try to heal my acne-prone skin without using chemicals. It seems that what companies think work really just doesn’t do anything for me except put unnecessary chemicals on my face. I love this Soothing Homemade Moisturizer Recipe because it uses aloe vera. Read on to find out why aloe vera and the other ingredients are so awesome for your face.

Do you get dry rough feet during the winter? I find it hard to care for my feet when I am always trying to cover them up due to the cold! When springtime comes and the shoes come off, it’s time to treat the feet to a nice Healing Peppermint Foot Soak with Essential Oils to get the circulation moving and moisturize the skin.

It’s mid-winter up here in New England and my lips do not like it! My skin is perpetually dry and my lips are no exception. But thanks to this Homemade Lip Balm Recipe for Dry Skin they aren’t as dry as they usually are every day. This recipe is so great, too, because you can literally use any container you have to store it in!

Some Essential Oils for Skin Conditions work beautifully. Tea tree oil for skin is especially beneficial as well as other tea tree uses. Yes, you can actually make your skin look and feel younger, stronger, and healthier with the application of a few very specific essential oils.

These Homemade Lotion Bars make a great holiday gift and they are so quick and easy to whip up! That’s what is so great about homemade gifts – they can be very inexpensive, quick and so much more meaningful than store-bought. That’s not to say I didn’t hit the stores this season!

Don’t you hate it when you take a nice cool shower in the summer only to find sweat pouring down your face less than 20 minutes later? I do NOT like to sweat, and I will do whatever it takes to keep from sweating. This is hard though, since I do like to be outdoors! Here’s How to Prevent Oily Skin During Summer.

Homemade Moisturizer for Oily Skin in Summer is something I’ve found works so much better than store-bought. Besides it being natural and sulfate-free, it also leaves no oily residue on my skin on those hot days.

Often described as nature’s gift to us, the best essential oils uses include natural remedies for minor ailments, the beautifying of our bodies, and helps to aid in promoting positive emotions. These oils are normally derived from plants using their flowers, stems, barks, roots and even sap. Various parts of the plant are then distilled to extract the precious essence that is seemingly life giving. Here are 52 Everyday Essential Oils Uses and Benefits.

Sometimes you need to use a All Natural Homemade Face Scrub with Essential Oils with tea tree oil for acne once or twice a week to rejuvenate the skin and get rid of the dead skin.

Here is an easy and super-quick recipe for Homemade Eczema Cream that will treat the symptoms and help comfort your skin. I love to use essential oils to help issues with skin care or health.

Gingerbread is one of the my favorite scents during the holidays – it just smells so delicious and rich. If you have essential oils, it’s so super easy to make your own Homemade Gingerbread Essential Oil Blend.
