Recently I have dipped my toes into the essential oils pool and I am in love! Quickly certain oils have found there way into my daily routine.
I love beginning my day with a tall glass of water. There are many health benefits to doing this. Water hydrates you and helps your body to flush out toxins. It give your brain fuel and fires up your metabolism. I add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to my water each morning. Adding lemon to your water gives it an extra boost. Lemon is a natural antioxidant and has cleansing and purifying properties.
Frankincense oil has many benefits including it's ability to ease discomfort, elevate your mood, and improve many different skin conditions. I have added add a couple of drops of Frankincense oil to my face lotion and the size of my pours have improved dramatically. I love it!
Another oil that I use daily is Melaleuca. It is known for it's cleansing and regenerative properties. I have had an issue with one of my toe nails not being so great for forever. I have tried every over the counter medication that they have and nothing has worked. I apply the Melaleuca after the shower and it is really helping to clean up my toe nail.
One of my favorite oils is becoming Peppermint oil. If you work in an office environment you know that everyone is seeking out caffeine around 3 o'clock for a pick me up. Simply inhaling the Peppermint oil lifts me up and gets me more focused. However, I really love adding a drop or two to my hot chocolate. Now that is one delicious afternoon treat with health benefits.
