The importance of essential oils
Essential oils provide us with great benefits used with caution and knowledge of them.
The oils are available over the counter in herbalists, dietetics and pharmacies, but an essential oil is a complex combination of aromatic molecules and some of them can be toxic or irritating, for this reason it is necessary to learn to know essential oils to be able to use them in a proper way and know how to dose them correctly.
It is convenient to be able to take an initiation course to aromatherapy, to have a true knowledge of how and when to use essential oils.
In the rooms, an electric vaporizer is recommended for safety.
Using essential oils at home
At home we can use them in the living room or dining room, with a vaporizer that depending on the climate we want to create we will use different combinations
- Essential oil to give the house aroma and remove odors: To clean the environment and neutralize odors, we will make a combination of 3 drops of tea tree essential oil and 3 drops of lemon essential oil.
For Christmas we can make the following mixture 3 drops of mandarin essential oil and 3 drops of nutmeg essential oil.
- Essential oil for better sleep: In order to fall asleep, the combination would be 3 drops of orange essential oil, 3 drops of lavender essential oil and if there are respiratory problems add 3 drops of eucalyptus essential oil.
- Essential oil to avoid falling asleep in the car: When we travel, to stay awake, a mixture of 3 drops of peppermint essential oil and 3 drops of rosemary essential oil will go very well. (You can impregnate a handkerchief and put it in the air outlet of the car).
