7 Essential Oils for the Holidays
When the Holiday season is approaching, turn to Aromatherapy to add to the ambiance. Here are some ideal Essential Oils to enhance your home as you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa this year.
Peppermint Essential Oil provides a boost of energy when you need it. Peppermint is also a wonderful anti-inflammatory. This means that it may help reduce pain caused by headaches, tight muscles, and upset stomachs. Its menthol component also helps to open congested airways.
Used as an ingredient in many favorite treats, Cinnamon provides a cozy sense of warmth and comfort. Additionally, Cinnamon can encourage a physical feeling of warmth as well. For example, adding a drop to a Winter massage may help heat the skin and the soul.
This Essential Oil helps to create a pleasant and secure emotional state of being. As for physical benefits, we love that Ginger is incredible for digestion. If Thanksgiving indulgences have pushed your tummy to the limit, apply Ginger with a carrier oil to the stomach and massage in a circular motion to help relieve nausea and indigestion.
