Essential oils are known for their extensive wellness benefits. Many of them are believed to have powerful impact on our physical health and mental psyche.
Regardless of their specific use, many of the essential oils are known to improve our overall sense of wellbeing. While one should use caution when using essential oils, they can help deepen our spiritual practice and provide much needed emotional comfort. Essential oils are known to heal the physical body, improve one’s mental makeup as well as increase a person’s sense of self-worth and self-esteem.
Now a days, many products claim using aromatic essential oils and their ‘healing benefits’. Even though, these oils have natural origins, they can contain very potent plant chemicals! Some Essential Oils are considered dangerous, where even a little exposure is known to cause strong negative reactions.
It is always best to utilize the benefits of these essential oils by using them externally. The safest way to apply essential oils or utilize them internally, is through the skin and should always be diluted with a good quality carrier oil. Although essential oils are effective for general wellness, there are certain types of fragrances that are not suitable for babies, children and certain sensitive individuals. Many of the essential oils are not advisable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
It is important to understand the risks and benefits of a particular essential oil and its source-origin to ensure guaranteed purity, before using it for any aroma-therapeutic purposes. As always, check with a medical physician and an Integrative Medicine specialist before starting with any natural-healing program, including using aromatic essential oils for an aromatherapy regimen of health and healing.
