something I’ve been absolutely obsessed with doing is 1) getting more into meditation/yoga and aligning my chakras (hello crystals and oils ) 2) experimenting with different oils applied topically.
we all know the basics of the mystical plant juice we call essential oils right? Like how within 20 minutes of applying an essential oil, the molecules from said oil can be found in every. cell. in. our. bodies. essential oils can also pass the blood brain barrier-this is good because it means that we can fully reap the therapeutic benefits from the plant oils we love the smell of. aromatherapy has a ton of benefits but until you start applying (high quality) oils directly to your skin, your seriously missing out 🤪
I’ve been (attempting) to apply essential oils in many ways recently and really soak in/notice the benefits as well as be more consistent with it. I use various rollers daily but one thing I’ve added is dropping a couple drops of oil onto the crown of my head, over my heart or third eye chakras. peppermint is one of my absolute favs for doing this with.
1️⃣it helps me focus and stay calm (I can literally feel myself relaxing as I type this)
2️⃣ can help with seasonal support as well as headaches 🏻
3️⃣helps me reduce brain fog aka “mom brain”
4️⃣ it just smells so good
I apply this little bad boy to the crown of my head most often, before I study, do chores and like tonight, sometimes before bed. some people feel really invigorating by peppermint so that might not be the best for you, try lavender or cedarwood instead. but for me, the scent of peppermint helps me unwind, focus on my nightly reading and feels tingly (in a good way )
so my question to you is, if you don’t use eo’s topically, what’s holding you back? *disclaimer* I’ve been using oils for long enough now, that I feel comfortable applying some neat (no carrier oil) but all of my rollers are diluted-which helps them last longer and stay on your skin (neat tends to evaporate quickly). However, if you are new to topical application please thoroughly dilute while you learn what’s works for you and how your body reacts ️ - 1 hour ago
