What’s the Big Deal About Essential Oils?

If you have friends who are into homeopathic healing, it’s likely you’ve heard them talk about their essential oil collection. Maybe you’re an essential oil outsider and you’re looking to get into the game, but you have no idea where to start. That’s okay! Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over some general information about essential oils. We also provide a few suggestions if you’re looking to make some initial essential oil purchases.

They’ve Been Around for Centuries

Ancient cultures used essential oils for healing purposes. Those who possessed essential oils were usually on the wealthier side as these were and are derived from seeds and plants through a technical process.

Essential Oils Have a Variety of Applications

Some essential oils are good to revitalize the skin and areas of the body where applied while others are more moisturizing or calming. Do your research before using essential oils to know what to expect.

Essential Essential Oils

Lavender and rosemary are both popular essential oils to start your collection with — both producing calming effects when rubbed on the body or sniffed through a diffuser. Peppermint is another great essential oil to start out with as it has a revitalizing effect when sniffed through a diffuser or applied to an area of the body. Tea tree oil is another popular essential oil used to clear the complexion.
