When walking into any female friend’s home, it is likely that you will hear: “Look at my oil diffuser! Isn’t it great?!” If you aren’t familiar with oil diffusers and essential oils in general, this “diffuser” is most likely going to look like a strange, egg-shaped structure shooting out a disconcerting looking mist into the air. Although the concept may be a bit foreign to many of us, oils have become a new trendy health craze amongst the young female crowd—so let’s take a look into what all of our oily friends are buzzing about.
Essential oils are exactly what they sound like. They are an extremely concentrated liquid (oil) extracted through the process of distillation from a plant, usually containing a very strong and distinct aroma. These oils are naturally occurring and have been found to provide an all-natural remedy for many everyday physical needs. They are chemical free, and in the midst of a phase when many are trying to steer clear of chemicals and GMO’s, essential oils fit right in.
Oils can be used for various purposes, one of the most common being diffusion. Oil diffusers take the oils combined with water vapor and diffuse them into the air, creating a pleasant aroma within the room. Another purpose for oils is using them as a remedy for physical ailments such as headaches and stomachaches. They can be rubbed directly on the skin in the affected area. Depending on the oil being used, it is crucial to dilute it with a carrier oil like coconut or olive, so that the highly concentrated oil doesn’t irritate the skin. Some essential oils can also be used as an ingredient in foods, or can be used to replace scents in household cleaners and deodorants.
Some of the most popular essential oils include lavender, peppermint and tea tree oil. Lavender is known to be calming and relaxing. It is commonly diffuse and creates a desired tranquil aroma. Peppermint is known to help headaches and clear sinuses. As most already know, it can also be diffused as a festive scent during the holidays. Tea tree oil is known as an anti-inflammatory and anti-septic. When diluted properly, it helps treat many skin irritations.
There is a large variety of brands and types of essential oils, and it's ultimately up to the user to decide which one is best. Health supermarkets, such as Whole Foods and Lucky’s Market, sell their own unique brands of oils, as well as offering a variety of others. There are some brands, such as Young Living and dōTERRA, that you can only order from online or through specific sellers. These brands are part of multi-level marketing companies in which you can become a member and have an option to sell the products, while gaining some of the profit and receiving discounts.
It’s up to you whether or not you want to hop onto this oily trend, but it never hurts to give it a try and see what you may find!
