The Benefits of Essential Oils
There are a large variety of essential oils that come with a range of health benefits. Depending on the type of oil, some may be inhaled, applied to the skin, or placed in food or a drink. Be sure to take caution when using each essential oil.
Scent has a strong effect on the body, and is very effective when it comes to essential oils. When we smell something, it triggers emotions, mood, and memory in our brains. This can cause a physical reaction as well, such as an overall feeling of calmness or energy.
Aromatherapy can help to improve digestion, ease symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve sleep, reduce pain levels, and decrease stress.
