3 Oil Thursday
I thought I'd share with you each Thursday 3 oils that I love and what the benefits of the oils are.
You can purchase all of these through my online store or email to find out how you can get them at a wholesale price.
The first 3 are:
Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus plants, requiring special climate and soil in order to thrive. Italians have used Bergamot for years to reduce feelings of stress and to soothe and rejuvenate skin. In Greece, the unripe fruits are used as sweetmeats, eaten by the spoonful as a dessert or with coffee. Bergamot is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to help with anxious and sad feelings. It is also purifying and cleansing for the skin while having a calming effect.
Diffuse in the classroom, at work, or at home when stress levels or tension is high.
Apply to the skin while showering and inhale deeply to experience its calming aroma while enjoying its purifying skin benefits.
Change regular tea to Earl Grey with the addition of Bergamot.
Apply to the feet before bedtime or use with dōTERRA® Fractionated Coconut Oil for a calming and relaxing massage.
Add one to two drops to your DIY skin care cleanser.
A member of the Pelargonium genus of flower species, geraniums are grown for their beauty and as a staple of the perfume industry. While there are over 200 different varieties of Pelargonium flowers, only a few are used as essential oils. Uses of Geranium essential oil date back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used Geranium oil to beautify skin and for other benefits. In the Victorian era, fresh geranium leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired; in fact, the edible leaves and flowers of the plant are often used in desserts, cakes, jellies, and teas. As an essential oil, Geranium has been used to promote the appearance of clear skin and healthy hair—making it ideal for skin and hair care products. It also helps calm nerves and lessen feelings of stress. Geranium is also known to naturally repel insects.
Use in an aromatherapy steam facial to beautify skin.
Add a drop to your moisturizer for a smoothing effect.
Geranium is great for both dry and oily hair. Apply a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner bottle, or make your own deep hair conditioner.
Diffuse aromatically for a calming effect.
Vetiver, a member of the grass family, is grown for many reasons. Unlike other grasses, the root system of Vetiver grows down, making it ideal for helping to prevent erosion and providing soil stabilization. Vetiver has a rich, exotic, complex aroma that is used extensively in perfumes. Due to Vetiver’s calming, grounding effect on the emotions, it is an ideal oil to use in massage therapy. It can also be rubbed on the feet before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep. When taken internally, Vetiver can support a heathy immune system.*
Add 1–2 drops to tea or hot drinks during winter time to promote immune-supporting properties*.
Use as a massage oil to calm emotions.
Take a warm bath with a few drops of Vetiver essential oil for deep relaxation.
Diffuse with Lavender, dōTERRA Serenity®, or dōTERRA Balance® to calm emotions and lessen stress.
Use a toothpick to help get the desired amount out of container if Vetiver is too thick to get out of the bottle. A little goes a long way.
