A deep scent of fresh leaves. A juicy aroma of crushed flowers. The name ‘essential oils’ brings a celestial feeling of goodness. Essential oils, so inherently natural and so soothing to the soul, have earned their spot as the healthy ingredient in many a beauty product. These oils (at least 90 of them are out there) are topping the popularity chart in beauty circles for their wellness properties.
These oils’ therapeutic, medical, cosmetic and psychological benefits are extraordinary, and so is the fame they now enjoy among the beauty and wellness circles of the elite. Remedies known to and practised by men of ancient ages have a huge fan following in today’s world.
So, what exactly are essential oils? They are highly concentrated plant extracts obtained through different extraction methods including cold pressing. Rose oil, lavender and tea tree oil are the popular ones and more than 300 are marketed commercially.
WANT TO SLEEP WELL?
There is an essential oil cure for it, with lavender as the heroine. To enhance your mood, try lemon oil. Want a natural antibiotic? Peppermint will do the trick. With celebrities and beauty experts endorsing their amazing benefits, these oils are now parts of beauty regimes like cleansing and scrubbing. They can be diffused for inhalation, applied topically or used for cleaning, so these oils are there in your face packs, bath oils and moisturisers, repairing skin damage, soothing your nerves and erasing scars and improving hair texture too.
A NON-MEDICINAL OPTION
As per a scientific paper presented in the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Bio-medicine, “essential oils can be a useful non-medicinal option or can also be combined with conventional care for some health conditions, provided safety and quality issues are considered.” Of late, an increasing number of studies have explored the positive correlations between various essential oils and their wellness benefits as YouTube brims with these oil use tutorials.
Beyond all these endorsements and online gyan and influencer promotions, essential oils have infused themselves into the lives of millions of people, performing sorcery of a kind. They blend with other natural ingredients to create products that smoothen wrinkles, wipe out dark circles under the eyes and turn lips full and sexy.
Block the signs of ageing in your body, improve complexion, remove acne and make your skin and hair look smooth and soft and beautiful with essential oil-induced natural products.
