I came to know of essential oil when I accidentally read about aromatherapy. I also learned that they are main ingredients of all perfumes that are being sold worldwide. I used to seeing the word lavender but it did not really made any impression on me until I read about the history of essential oils. Lavender is considered the most famous and well-loved essential oil because of its many uses. For one, it is good for treating a wound although others claim that tea tree oil is the best for wounds. Moreover, it has become a staple ingredient in making a face cream because of its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
I love creating massage oil using essential oils. I combine lavender, rose, vanilla and jasmine and the smell is perfect for me. Don't you know that these essential oils that I mentioned have the power to attract love when they are being used? According to those who are experts in the use of essential oils, these oils can attract money, relationships, jobs and whatever it is that you want to manifest in your life, by just having or mixing 4 types of oils with a carrier oil. A carrier oil can be grape seed oil, virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil. Essential oils are mixed with any of the above mentioned carrier oils because of their potent property which can cause skin irritation. If you want to have a good night sleep, you can prepare your own oil for massage by mixing clary sage and lavender oil with any carrier oil of your choice. You can even put a drop or two on your pillow and smell its relaxing scent. Now, you are on your way to your dreamland.
Lavender oil mixed with a carrier oil can be used to massage parts with stretch marks. Try it and you will notice that they get fade after several sessions. It will also put you into sleep because of its soothing effect. If you run out of mouthwash and there are lots of essential oils in your cabinet, try creating a mouthwash of your own. Bring out peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus essential oils, honey and purified water. The rule is for every 10 ml of liquid you can have 4 drops of essential oils. So be guided with this rule. Do not forget to add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten the taste. A big bottle is best consumed in three months, after that you have to make a new one.
If you want to really relax while taking a bath, add essential oils on the water you will use. In a teaspoon of milk, add a few drops of essential oils of your choice. The milk will neutralize the oils so your skin is protected from irritation. You will notice that after a while of doing this, you get glowing skin.
When you want to meditate, you can use essential oil with your burner, the scent is conducive to your activity and it keeps you focused on what you are doing. Lavender is also a good choice. Some opt to use eucalyptus, sandalwood or even jasmine.
There are many uses of essential oils and one would really love to have all of them. They give magic to every user simply because the scent can take him anywhere-meditation, sleep, bathing. So start collecting your essential oils and be ready to take a ride to the wonderland.
