I personally believe that taking care of the mind, the body and the spirit is important to live a balanced and fulfilled life. So I am very committed to taking care of all three. For my spirit, I feed on the scriptures, for my body, I exercise and eat well and for my mind, I focus on positive things. With the help of New Directions Aromatics, I have found a new direction for not only my body but for my mind, my spirit and my home too.
What Are Essential Oils & What Are They Used For?
Essential Oils are the natural essences of plants acquired by steam distillation or cold-expression from a single botanical source. These oils are widely used in aromatherapy as well as in other commercial enterprises such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, soaps, candles, and domestic cleaning products.
Essential Oils are the immune systems of the plants being distilled, which enable the plant to defend itself from infection by other organisms. The fluids extracted from the plant are integral for its survival, but they often offer exotic fragrance compounds prized in Aromatherapy and Perfumery.
I currently use essential oils in my home to ensure the home is cool, calm and fresh. For the sake of my baby who uses inhalers and nasal sprays, I use the Tea Tree essential oil which is one of the most popular essential oils for home remedies. The scent or aroma of the tea tree essential oil is fresh and slightly medicinal which leaves a woody base notes as it evaporates. This help the young man breath in freshness around the house and we use LESS OF the inhalers.
My personal favourite is the Lavender essential oil from New Directions Aromatics which I use for a warm bath on nights when I want to feel extra relaxed, smell super fresh and have a much deeper sleep like I am in a 5-star hotel while still at the comfort of my home.
A lot of people believe using oil based products on oily skin is a No-No. Well I have news for you. Lime Essential oil does have a fresh citrusy scent which revitalises the skin and act as an astringent which is perfect for oily skin.
The New Directions Aromatics has a list of amazing essential oils and all of them are perfect for different uses and purposes on the body, the mind and the spirit. Until I took my time to read the A to Z list of essential oils, just to mention a few, I didn’t realise there was Chamomile essential oils, yet I take the Chamomile tea. There is also the Coffee essential oils which I think will be perfect for all coffee lovers because of the freshly brewed coffee aroma.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. So tell me, have you used essential oils before? If you have, what is your experience like? Please share.
Much Love, Mojisola
