Essential Oils are known for their wonderful scents, but what other benefits do these oils provide? The number of symptoms that can be addressed with the use of essential oils may surprise you. From feeling more relaxed to easing an ailment, essential oils might be the solution you are looking for to bring harmony back to your body.

Ease neck and head pain with Clary Sage: The perfumed compounds in clary sage relax pain nerves, and soothe tight neck and scalp muscles. Blend six drops of clary sage with one ounce of olive oil, and massage onto your temples and neck to relieve pain. Relief may come in as quickly as ten minutes with this essential oil.

Fight a cold with Pine or Eucalyptus: With strong antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities, pine and eucalyptus essential oils can shorten the length of a cold by initiating the healing of aggravated sinus tissues. For cold relief, begin by adding three drops of pine or eucalyptus essential oil to a pot containing two cups of hot (not boiling) water. Bend over the pot, cover your head with a towel, and inhale the trapped steam for ten minutes, two times a day, until you begin to feel the benefits.

Better sleep with Ylang-ylang: Smelling the scent of ylang-ylang can pacify the peripheral nervous system, calming both the mind and the body to help you fall asleep within 20 minutes. To take advantage of this essential oil, add two drops of ylang-ylang to a clean kitchen or makeup sponge, and set it on your bedroom nightstand. Or if you enjoy an evening bath, add six drops of ylang-ylang essential oil to the water.

Find Calm with Vanilla: Breathing in the fragrance of vanilla signals the brain to create a calmer, more content mind-set. One study found that this scent reduced stress in 92 percent of the participants. For on-the-go stress relief, try mixing 25 drops of vanilla essential oil with eight ounces of unscented lotion. Apply to your skin as needed to stay calm and relax your mind-set.

Perk up your mood with Orange: Inhaling this citrusy scent can trigger mood-boosting brain receptors, giving you a hit of happiness. In fact, Italian researchers discovered that if you regularly breathe in a whiff of orange essential oil, it can reduce depressed moods by half. To keep a sunny disposition, try inhaling this scent every two to three hours during the day.

Improve concentration with Rosemary: If you have trouble keeping track of everything on your to-do list, take a break and breathe in pure rosemary essential oil. It can clear the fog in your brain by raising your alertness, focus and mental power within five minutes. This benefit can last up to 60 minutes.

Fight Acne with Tea Tree Oil or Roman Chamomile: For a powerful way to banish blemishes, blend antibacterial tea tree oil with aloe vera gel. For a sensitive or delicate skin, anti-inflammatory Roman chamomile is a gentler way to treat inflamed, acne-prone skin. Mix Roman chamomile with coconut oil for a natural way to sooth eczema.

Find Allergy Relief with Lavender: Lavender essential oil is a natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory. Add one drop to your cheeks, forehead and sinuses as needed, or apply several drops to the soles of your feet before bed. Lavender also helps relax your body to reduce stress.

If you have one of these ailments, try an essential oil to feel one hundred percent better. Choose from the bouquet of oils to address and ease your symptoms in a naturally pleasing way. An allergic reaction to pure essential oils is rare, however if you have sensitive skin or allergies, it’s best to consult your doctor first before trying essential oils.
