Benefits of essential oils Essential oils have been used for thousands of years, from cultures as far-reaching as Ancient Egypt and India. These oils have been used for a variety of purposes, from spiritual to medicinal, and there are a significant number of modern scientific studiesthat support the theory that essential oils can be beneficial in a number of very real and quantifiable ways. The following are just a few examples of the types of benefits that essential oils can provide: EUCALYPTUS Eucalyptus has been used across many cultures and is often used in over-the-counter medications. When placed near the sinuses or on the chest it helps with congestion and sore muscles. Eucalyptus is particularly useful for diffusers like the ones we are testing — especially when used for congestion. LAVENDER Lavender is typically used for bruises, cuts, and skin irritation. Studies also show that the scent can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Application on the skin has its uses, however lavender is popular for diffusers because it can create a soothing, relaxing scent in a room. PEPPERMINT Used in many OTC remedies, peppermint can also be used as an essential oil in tea or other beverages, and also as a way to soothe the stomach. Studies show that peppermint increases oxygen levels in the blood, and can help a person be more aware. TEA TREE Tea tree oil is commonly used directly on the skin, and can be used for everything from acne to fungal infections. LOTS OF OTHERS There are literally hundreds of essential oils to choose from, some more useful than others. We recommend you do some research to find a few essential oils that will work best for you. In our article researching and testing essential oils, we discovered quality can greatly vary by brands. Proper use and selection are required to maintain safety and to properly enjoy the benefits of these oils.

Essential Oils & Diffusers! 

Do you need an essential oil diffuser?

A surprisingly small number of people actually know what an essential oil diffuser is. When we conducted a poll, only about half knew what an essential oil diffuser was.

That said, essential oil diffusers are quickly gaining popularity due to a growing interest in the health benefits of essential oils, as well as the fact that scented candles are not as safe as many once thought.

Research on the dangers of scented candles

There is a growing body of research which indicates that scented candles are not as safe as many think. In fact, many candles release harmful metals and compounds into the air — including lead, acetaldehyde, and formaldehyde.

While there are scented candles that do not release these harmful chemicals, a significant number do. This issue has underscored the value and importance of finding alternatives to candles.

If you currently use scented candles for anything from aromatherapy to ambiance, it is imperative that you research your brand of candle to ensure it does not contain chemicals that could be harmful to you or your family.

A better option would be to switch over to an essential oil diffuser, which provides the same benefits as a scented candle, but uses natural ingredients — many of which have been proven over thousands of years.

The health benefits of essential oil diffusers

For many essential oils, there are different benefits attributed to applying them directly on the skin, versus having them diffused into the air. Some essential oils shouldn’t be placed directly on the skin at all.

Essential oils serve a number of purposes, including the following:

AROMATHERAPY

Essential oils are used for everything from relaxation (lavender) to pain relief (rosemary) to decongestants (peppermint and eucalyptus). By diffusing these oils into the air, you can gain the benefits for hours without needing to reapply the oils onto your skin.

AMBIANCE

There’s a reason why many spas have a distinctive smell — they’re using essential oils! Oils such as tea tree oil have been used for centuries to create the ambiance of a calm, safe place.

INSECT REPELLANT

Many people are already familiar with the fact that citronella is a useful mosquito repellant. However, there are lots of other essential oils that work as well — which is a good thing if you’re not a fan of the citronella scent!

Essential oils that act as insect repellants include:

Cedarwood and eucalyptus for fleas

Thyme, juniper, and rose geranium for ticks

Citronella and peppermint for mosquitos

Once again, it’s worth mentioning that while there are candles that can perform many of the same functions as the oils listed, essential oils (especially 100% pure oils) contain none of the harmful chemicals found in many scented candles currently on the market.

DECEMBER HERB OF THE MONTH: BAY LEAF

FUN FACTS ABOUT THE BAY LEAF!

Bay – Laurus nobilis 

• Also known as sweet bay, laurel, sweet laurel, Grecian bay, Grecian laurel or Turkish bay.

• California bay leaves are a different plant (Umbellularia californica) and don’t confuse bay with Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia) which is an evergreen shrub with poisonous leaves.

• It is a broadleaf evergreen tree, pyramidal in shape and hardy to USDA Zones 8, though it may be grown in a container as a houseplant.

• The tree is dioecious (male and female flowers are on separate trees) and purplish-black berries form on the female tree if pollinated.

• In Greek mythology, the woodland nymph Daphne was turned into a bay tree by her father to save her from the sun god Apollo who had fallen in love with her.

• Ancient Greeks believed their dreams would come true after sleeping on a bed of laurel twigs and inhaling the spicy fragrance.

• Crowns of bay leaves were awarded to the victors of the first Olympic games in Greece. • Baccalaureate degrees received by college students comes from the Latin bacca lauri, meaning “laurel berries”. In Greece and Rome, exceptional scholars were honored with wreaths of bay. This is also where the term “Poet Laureate” comes from.

• Bay leaves are added to many different kinds of sweet and savory dishes, from cultures around the world. They are removed before serving due to their leathery texture.

• Most recipes listing bay leaf in the ingredients are referring to Laurus nobilis
