Essential Oils + How They Enhance Wellness + Beauty

Updated: Apr 5, 2023





What exactly are essential oils?


Essential oils are bottled plant extracts, what could be better, right? Plants are steamed and pressed extracting the compounds that hold their beautiful aromas, then bottled up for us to enjoy and reap the benefits.


So how do they work?


Do you ever notice that certain aromas bring on emotions or maybe remind you of a certain place and time or a specific person? Well, there is actually a science behind that. For me, the most refreshing, uplifting aroma that makes me feel the happiest is anything citrus. So, now you know a little more about our name.


One way you can incorporate essential oils is through your sense of smell.

By inhaling the aroma of essential oils, the scent molecules make their way from the olfactory nerve and travels to our brain, interacting with our limbic system. Our limbic system is the part of our brains that is responsible for our emotional reactions, hormone levels, and our memory.


Another way essential oils work is through absorption.

Once diluted into a carrier oil, essential oils can be applied to the skin and absorbed into the blood steam, reaping specific benefits from each plant. From relieving stress, improving sleep, and boosting energy and focus, there are ways essential oils can be beneficial to your wellness.


Below, I created a short guide to help you choose the right oils for your specific needs.
