5 Best Essential Oils to Use in the Winter
Posted on December 09 2016
Cold and flu season has officially arrived and while the winter months can be very busy and stressful for the majority of us, we have put together a list of the best essential oils to use during the winter to help with your energy, to kill germs and boost your immune system. There's a few ways that you can use essential oils: diffusing them to get the aromatherapy benefits or topically (with a carrier oil).
1 • PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL - peppermint is like breathing in a fluffy white snow cloud and when combined with eucalyptus it can do wonders for your respiratory system. It's one of the world's oldest medicinal herbs and also one of the most versatile.
I love to use peppermint when I travel, especially when on a long plane or car ride. It's invigorating, anti bacterial and also great for combatting nausea. We created Breathe Deeply for an easy to use travel blend. It contains a blend of pure, therapeutic grade essential oils that work wonders when you're on the go and feeling a little stressed holiday season.
2 • ORANGE ESSENTIAL OIL - citrus essential oils are known for their uplifting and energizing properties and this is my go to for fighting off the winter blues. Orange is great to use throughout the day when you are feeling low of energy, skip the coffee and go for our Good Morning Beautiful Spritz. A couple of sprays of this and you will be happy + ready to go!
3 • EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL - this oil does wonders in the winter for anything relating to cold and flu. It really works to open your respiratory system when you're all stuffed up. I like to put a few drops on my chest if I come down with a cold and I also add a few drops to a wash cloth and bring it in the shower or add a few drops to a bath.
4 • CLOVE ESSENTIAL OIL - the aroma from clove essential oil helps the mind respond to stress but there is more to this oil than the great holiday smell. It is also antibacterial and great for fighting germs! We like to disused clove cinnamon and nutmeg which helps to kill the bacteria in the air.
We have created the perfect holiday blend, 'Tis the Season. You can use this Spritz to clean + freshen your air space or naturally clean any surface. Gently spray your face and body for the added benefits. This Happy Spritz blend is only available until Christmas and in very limited quantities.
5 • LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL - lemon is a great natural disinfectant. It can be used topically for its mood boosting properties or on any surface that you want naturally clean.
