Benefits of These 7 Essential Oils
Sage | Tea Tree | Grapefruit | Peppermint | Rosemary | Frankincense | Lemon
Essential oils have been a big part of my wellness journey during the past few years. At the root of it, the role of essential oils is to preserve the natural scent and aroma of plants. This is accomplished by extracting the plant's aromatic chemicals and mixing it with a carrier oil.
I use essential oils for aromatherapy as well as a topical on my skin. At the beginning of summer 2019, I bought myself my very first diffuser as I wanted to finally use these 7 essential oils that were gifted to me by Alo Yoga NY. Whenever I feel like it, I put my diffuser on to help me decrease stress and sleep better. During the daytime, however, I like to apply the sage essential oil lightly over my arms and collarbone so that it moisturizes my skin and provides me with a soothing scent.
