#SpiritualHealing: Essential Oils That NEED To Be A Part Of Your Beauty Cabinet

An essential oil is a concentrated, potent blend of oil that has been derived from plants. Essential oils can be extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed or root of plants and all you need is just one drop to reap the benefits. The concentrated version of these oils contains the most powerful healing compounds of the entire plant.

Essential oils are used for healing purposes and the process is referred to as aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment that helps you improve your physical, mental and emotional health. Aromatherapy has been used for over 5,000 years across different cultures for numerous conditions. Essential oils can be commonly found in most skin and hair care products. Known to relieve stress, anxiety and depression, they are also natural remedies for most common ailments.

My personal journey with essential oils began with my pursuit to make my house smell like a spa. Electric and candle diffusers became my favourite way to unwind after a long day and that quickly escalated into reaping the benefits of essential oils through my skincare and haircare products. Just adding some oils like lavender, frankincense, lemon, peppermint and tea tree oil to your every day will help:

- Relax your mind and body

- Soothe sore muscles

- Heal skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis

- Fight cold and flu symptoms

- Alleviate muscle pain

- Balance hormones

- Reduce the appearance of scars, blemishes, cellulite and wrinkles

If you would like to dip your toes into the world of essential oils, start by adding a few drops (5-15 drops) to your everyday beauty products like hair oils, shampoos, moisturiser, face cream etc. Don’t use essential oils on your skin unless you’ve diluted them.

These are the best essential oils for your skin and hair and these should be a part of your beauty cabinet.
