Essential Oils Basics!

I wish I would have read a blog like this years ago. I had no idea of the powers behind essential oils, how to use them, or what they were event used for, aside from aromatherapy. Marni Gallerneault has written a very informative post about Essential Oils Basics and she has graciously allowed me to share it with you all.

     Marni is a stay-at-home mom, she feeds her family Paleo-style, she writes a fantastic blog called Well Grounded Hopes, and she is also a newbie to the ForeverGreen Family.  Check her out, and enjoy the fabulous post that she put together for us!

Essential Oils Basics

by Mani Gallerneault, Well Grounded Hopes

I am so fascinated by the wide range of health benefits that essential oils offer us. The health benefits include supporting the immune system; fighting off bacteria, viruses, and infection; providing a way to detox your system; balancing your hormones; improving circulation; bringing mental clarity; providing pain relief; lessening depression symptoms; providing stress relief; and bringing digestive relief from things like gas and parasites. Because of the wide range of oils and their benefits, it can be very overwhelming to start learning how to use them. So many resources make it very complicated, even those that claim their guide is for beginners, and I get lost quickly. It would be a shame to miss out on the beauty and rejuvenation of essential oils simply because we couldn’t get through all the muddle. There is not enough room here to talk about each specific oil, and I actually avoid doing so on purpose so as to try to keep this as simple as can be. Here I attempt to cut it all down to the bare basics of what’s important, as much for you as for myself!

Essential oils…Essentially the right choice!

Here’s some info about essential oils, why you choose them, and to let you know, that you should NOT use synthetics or “fragrance”, which can hide a long list of toxic chemicals.

Essential oils are concentrated liquids that contain the strong aroma compounds of various plants. They are typically extracted from the plant through distillation and give a highly fragrant scent if their pure form. They are taken from various parts of the plant, including flower petals, leaves, twigs, bark or skin of a fruit from the plant. The process of extraction can be a lengthy one and has to be done properly to maintain the integrity of the oil. While some cheaper or synthetic versions may be available, they do not have the same properties as the pure and natural essential oils.

Essential oils are widely used to naturally add scent to cosmetics, soaps, cleaners, etc. Depending on the scent and the plant that they come from, different oils are used to serve different purposes. Each oil features its own distinct qualities and aromas, and frequently used in conjunction with others to create a specific result, such as soothing anxiety and stress, easing nausea, or relieving headaches. For instance, lavender and chamomile essential oils can be used in baby care products to provide a natural calming effect.
While they can be most costly as an ingredient, it takes very few drops of an essential oil to create a positive effect on any formulation and provides a great alternative to using fragrance oils and perfumes.  At ForeverGreen, we are proud to say that we only use pure essential oils in all of our products.
