Essential Oils

by Amy Gusso


Often, we will diffuse essential oils in the clinic when we know that our client base for the day does not have any sensitivities to scents.

Essential Oils can be an easy way to incorporate wellness into your life, whether it is through diffusing them in the air, putting a couple drops in the bath, applying them on your body etc.  Each essential oil has specific benefits and uses.  Some essential oils can be combined together to create a unique blend. 

Before using essential oils, it is important to understand the benefits, contraindications etc. to ensure you are using the essential oil properly.  I would recommend purchasing a book, talking to your Naturopath or even asking about essential oils at your local health food store.


Here are 3 of my "go to" essential oils, including some of the  benefits of them:


Lavender

  • Helps reduce stress (calming scent)
  • Promotes peaceful sleep
  • Soothes occasional skin irritations

Eucalyptus

  • Promotes relaxation
  • Supports the respiratory system
  • Helps to clear the mind

Peppermint

  • Promotes healthy respiratory function and clear breathing
  • Supports digestion
  • Repels bugs naturally


There are a variety of essential oils out there.  I hope you have fun learning about them and that you too start to incorporate them into your home as part of your overall wellness routine.
