At Harmonic Chiropractic, we believe essential oils are precisely that…essential. There are so many health benefits that they offer. Not only does the scent remind you of past experiences, but essential oils help improve your overall health.
Benefits of Essential Oils
There are so many advantages of using essential oils, that we could honestly write a book. Here are a few we think are most important:
Boost your immune system – Certain essential oils help fight off symptoms of colds and flu and improve your immune system in the process.
Soothe muscles and pain – Some essential oils alleviate pain, including headaches and muscle pain. They are a great alternative to muscle relaxers.
Hormone balance – While many doctors are quick to prescribe pills to help balance hormones, we believe that essential oils can do the same.
Digestion – As we get older, our digestive system changes and we may become more sensitive to certain foods. There are essential oils that can help improve digestion, allowing you to still enjoy the foods you love.
Skin conditions – Essential oils can even help with skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Give them a try before you spend a fortune on creams and medicines.
Essential oils are becoming more popular which means there are many people with questions about them. Here are some common questions we often hear and their answers:
What types of essential oils are best?
We believe all essential oils can provide significant health benefits, but we offer the following: tea tree, lavender, calendula, chamomile, peppermint, frankincense, oregano, lemon, grapefruit, and eucalyptus. These are probably the most commonly used as well.
What do I look for when selecting essential oils?
First, you want to determine what health issue you want to improve. Then look for oils that have a high purity. These will contain the least amount of additives, because, yes, there are essential oils out there that still have some additives.
Are essential oils safe for pregnant women and children?
In both of these cases, you will want to pay extra attention to dosage and reaction. You can always dilute the oils to be safe using a carrier oil or water.
