Our DIY energising ‘WAKE UP’ essential oil inhaler
Essential oils have been around for a while now, but recently they have been spoken about in the media, online, in magazines and advertised on the daily, let’s just say they are becoming extremely popular, and we say FINALLY! Whether it’s to calm yourself down before bed, using it as a perfume, cleaning, diffusing mist around the house or dabbing a little on the kiddies before a day of school, they are becoming more mainstream than ever before, and we love it!
But what actually are essential oils and how and why should we be introducing them into our lives…
Essential oils are the essence of a plant, distilled and prepared. Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, and bark etc are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural compounds are essential oils. Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination. If these natural chemicals are properly extracted, they can be used to help you physically, mentally, and emotionally in your daily life.
Now with more and more research being conducted around the world, scientific proof is being documented that they actually work on so many different levels (have a skim of this article to see the science behind oils https://www.doterra.com/US/en/science)
The right essential oil can be used in so many ways. Cooking, household cleaning, emotional health, hayfever, sleep, boosting immunity, stress relief, cleanse, sickness relief (common cold) and much more.
