Spring is traditionally a time of cleaning, and there is no reason why the subject of spring cleaning your home should stop. Broaden this perspective on your mind and body by incorporating essential oils into your daily life. While many of us are familiar with common essential oils like lavender and peppermint, there are a wide variety of useful blends to choose from.
Learn about three not-so-common, but very useful essential oils and how to use them:
Geranium essential oil is great to add to your medicine cabinet. Because this oil acts on the central nervous system, it can be particularly helpful for Parkinson’s patients and other nervous system disorders. Geranium oil does not come from the geranium flower, but from the leaves, stems and flowers of Geranium Robert (lemon plant) and still has a unique and pleasant smell. Mix a few drops in jojoba or another massage oil for a rejuvenating massage. Geranium oil can also be a great addition to your skincare routine: just put a drop on your face cream for a glowing complexion. As with all essential oils, be careful not to use it too close to the eyes or other mucous membranes.
Rosemary is a widely used spice, but it’s also a powerful essential oil that has been used to fight ailments from fatigue and depression to arthritis. Its antiseptic properties make it a great addition to any essential oil collection. Organically grown rosemary oil can also be used during cooking: add some of it to your tomato sauce or mix it with olive oil and use it as a marinade for chicken – delicious!
Myrrh is extracted from the bark and resin of the myrrh tree that grows in northeastern Africa. It is a powerful oil that can help treat infections, mouth ulcers, bronchitis, and more. Myrrh is an ancient oil that appears in the Bible as a perfume and cleansing anointing. It really is a proven ointment. You can apply myrrh oil directly to the skin or mix it with other oils.
Whether you want to freshen up your home with the spread of rosemary or improve your skin care routine with geranium, there are many powerful essential oils you can use for physical and emotional health.
