In recent years, it has become trendier to use essential oils and other types of oil serums to improve your health in one way or another. Since there is such a large range of oils, there is also a large range of ways to use them, as well as a large range of ways they can benefit your health. Below are some commonly used oils and their benefits.
Up first is CBD oil. This oil often gets a bad rep because it is associated with marijuana. People worry that they will get “high” from using this oil. However, not all CBD oil contains THC, which is the naturally-occurring chemical in marijuana that causes the “high” feeling. So, if you don’t want to get high, simply buy CBD oil that does not contain THC.
Whether the cbd oil you choose contains thc or not, it will have many great health benefits. One of the best health benefits comes in the form of natural pain relief. If you are using the oil for this benefit, you can mix the oil with a base oil or cream. Rub this mixture (or buy cream or oil serums that already contain cbd oil) onto any afflicted areas to get pain relief. It works especially well on sore joints and muscles.
Vitamin E Oil
If you are looking to make your skin look younger and your hair and nails look healthier, then look no further than vitamin E oil! This oil is so popular that there are many easily available options to pick from when taking it. If you are trying to treat your skin, you may benefit best from using a topical serum. You can buy serums that include vitamin E or break open a vitamin E capsule and use the oil inside as a serum. Either way, rub this on any skin areas you want to improve the appearance of.
If you want to improve your hair, then try buying shampoo that already contains vitamin E oil. This can help to make your hair both stronger and shinier! If you want to improve your nails, hair, and skin all at once, consider ingesting vitamin E capsules or taking vitamins that contain vitamin E. Even eating more foods that naturally contain vitamin E, like nuts, seeds, and dark leafy greens, can help.
Mint Essential Oil
One essential oil that is loaded with health benefits is mint (or peppermint) essential oil. Two of the health benefits that stand out with mint essential oil include helping to treat and prevent dandruff and clearing a stuffy nose. Funnily enough, both of these home remedies can be done in the shower!
If you are struggling with dandruff or an itchy scalp, then mix two to three drops of mint essential oil into the usual amount of shampoo that you use. Then just use this as shampoo mixture as you would use any other kind of shampoo. It should be noted that whenever you use essential oils, it is important to dilute the oil. In this case, the oil is naturally diluted in the shampoo. If you skip this step, then the oil will be more likely to burn your scalp than help it. As a bonus, if you use this home remedy, it can also help to clear up a stuffy nose. If you don’t need to cure dandruff, just keep an essential oil bottle open in your shower so you can smell it while showering to open up your nose.
If you are looking to improve your health in one way or another– the natural way– then consider trying out one or all of these oil serums, capsules, or diluted oils. Of course, make sure to talk to your doctor before changing up your routine by taking oils. Taking too many of certain oils can affect medication, so it’s better to ask beforehand. Otherwise, you should be in for a world of health improvements!
