There are many reasons why people use essential oils, but one of the most common reasons is to improve mental health and clarity. Some of issues that can benefit from the use of essential oils include anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia and emotional exhaustion.

Using pure and natural essential oils

Essential oils have been used to treat both physical and mental illnesses for centuries. As the plant-based essential oil molecules are absorbed through the skin or inhaled, they enter the bloodstream and are carried to the brain where stimulation can occur. When used in an essential oil diffuser, or absorbed through a massage, essential oils can help people find peace in their troubled situation.

The severity of disorders can vary from person to person, and situation to situation. One thing that most sufferers have in common, however, is the way that these issues can cause a change to their daily lives and routines. Medication and other therapeutic interventions can help, but in a time when people are trying to avoid chemical solutions, essential oils offer an alternative.

    It’s so crazy how I’m reading this post today, I just bought a humidifier last night with essential oils! I currently have Lavender, Tea Tree, and Hibiscus oils and have only tried tea tree oil so far. I first bought it to have it on when I do yoga at home, but I wasn’t aware that they treat physical and mental illness.

    Great post! and thank you for the helpful information! xx
