Essential Oils for Overall Well-Being

Since I’ve been in the spa and beauty/wellness related business for quite a while, I am very familiar with aromatherapy and how it can be beneficial in many everyday situations.

I constantly have friends and family asking me about various essential oils and their aromatherapy properties, so I decided to interview the expert, Kayla Fioravanti, ARC Registered & Certified Aromatherapist and Co-founder & Chief Cosmetic Formulator for Essential Wholesale (www.essentialwholesale.com). Here is her advice about incorporating aromatherapy into your world - It’s much easier than you might think.


Q.  Which aromatherapy scents are most multitasking?

A.  The number one multitasking essential oil is lavender.  Lavender can be used for everything from burns, blemishes, and sleeplessness to tantrums.  There is no other essential oil with as many topical aromatherapy applications as lavender.  It is one of the only essential oils that can be applied "neat" (directly on the skin undiluted) and it is useful for any skin issue. It is also incredibly versatile for inhalation aromatherapy. Lavender is a relaxing essential oil that can be used to calm, soothe and sedate. Lavender makes the top of the list for every nervous condition.  Lavender is especially good when it is used in a spray for bed linens.  Not only is it relaxing but it combats dust mites and bed bugs.  I never travel without lavender.


 Q.  If a person is buying essential oils for home use which ones are best and how can they incorporate them into their everyday life for stress relief, to bring about a joyous environment, to combat sickness and for overall well-being?


A.  Stress Relief:  Lavender is the best choice for stress relief.  It is one of the easiest essential oils to incorporate into your life without hassle.  Since lavender can be applied “neat” to the skin it is handy to simply carry a bottle of lavender essential oil in your purse.  I apply lavender essential oil to every band-aid just before sticking it to any of my children’s bumps, bruises and owies.  If I’m stressed out I apply a little bit of lavender to my finger tips and run my hands through my hair (works on kids too) to bring the subtle aroma to my environment.

Joyous Environment:  There are two essential oils that are known for causing euphoria; clary sage and ylang ylang, but they are not the most universally liked aroma in the aromatherapy world.  It is best to blend these essential oils with other more appealing aromas.  Other essential oils that are uplifting include:  lemon, peppermint, grapefruit and bergamot.  Clary sage and ylang ylang are very powerful essential oils in both their aroma and their therapeutic properties.  When blending just a little bit goes a very long way and one drop of either should be blended with 5-10 drops of another essential oil. A couple drops of essential oil can be added to a cotton ball and place near an output vent for your heater or air conditioner.  Another way to quickly diffuse aroma is to boil some water in a pot, turn the heat down to medium, and add a few drops of essential oil to the simmering water. 

Combat Sickness: 
Laurel leaf, lemon and orange essential oils are the best tools for combating sickness.  Laurel leaf is another of the few essential oils that can be applied directly to the skin.  When you feel yourself coming down with something apply a few drops of laurel leaf to your finger tips and rub onto the skin above your lymph nodes in your neck.  Also take several deep breathes of the laurel leaf by cupping your hands around your nose and mouth and inhaling.  Repeat several times per day.  Before going to bed add a few drops of laurel leaf to a hot bath and soak for 30 minutes. 

Lemon essential oils can be used to combat the spread of airborne germs.  Find an empty spray bottle and add 10 drops of lemon essential oil per 1 ounce of water, shake vigorously and spray thorough your environment. 
Orange essential oil can be used to combat germs on contact surfaces.  Find an empty spray bottle and add 20 drops of sweet orange essential oil per 1 ounce of rubbing alcohol, shake vigorously and spray onto to hard surfaces, door knobs and other commonly touched surfaces. 

Overall Well Being:  Grapefruit and peppermint are the first essential oils to come to mind when thinking of overall well being.  They are the most universally appealing essential oils for both men and women.  Grapefruit brings a smile to everyone’s face when inhaled.  The smile is unconscious, automatic and universal. 

Grapefruit is great for mental exhaustion, disinfecting airborne germs and useful for oily congested skin.  Peppermint is perfect for headaches, migraines, nausea, fatigue, apathy, coughs, mental tiredness and is stimulating, and strengthening.

Once you begin to use aromatherapy on a regular basis, you will wonder how you got along without it. The soothing scents are a welcome, calming ritual you can always count on to bring relief that is pure and natural. Start with one scent and build your own aromatherapy collection. Your mind, body and soul will thank you.
