Article by Ainsley Crase

 

Essential oils are aromatic oils derived from nature. Flowers, wood, seeds, leaves and roots can all be used to extract oils for a multitude of uses. From aromatherapy to fragrances, essential oils are a safe, natural alternative for harsh chemicals. Here are 5 well-loved essential oils and their uses:

 

  1. Lemon

Lemon essential oil works to prevent oily skin. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps to clean and purify. Fun fact: although called ‘oils’, essential oils are not in fact oily.

 

  1. Lavender

Lavender essential oil is excellent for calming and relaxation. It also works as moisturiser for chapped lips and dry skin.

 

  1. Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil aids in digestion and soothes an upset stomach. Drinking it in tea or inhaling it also curbs hunger.

 

  1. Rosemary

Rosemary essential gets rid of dandruff – enough said. Massage it into the scalp before rinsing and wave goodbye to flakes.

 

  1. Chamomile

Chamomile helps to induce sleep. It is also an anti-depressant and can raise spirits simply by smelling it.
