Benefits of Using Essential Oils

Essential Oils are becoming more common place in the home since the resurgence of natural remedies. From homeopathic to a transdermal application, these oils are made and used for benefits specific to each herb. This is a quick list of the top 5 essential oils to keep around the house for a myriad of uses. In addition to keeping these around the house, these five essential oils can also be found in our products. Our MagneSoothe Body Balm contains Lavender, and our MagneSport Balms have peppermint, eucalyptus, clove, lemon, cinnamon and rosemary.

1. Lavender

Lavender has been used for medicinal and home care purposes for thousands of years and is one of the most versatile oils you can buy. When it comes to therapeutic uses, lavender can be applied topically (directly to the skin) to alleviate:

  • Skin rashes

  • Acne

  • Insect bites

  • Minor burns

It’s also an effective disinfectant for cuts and scrapes.

A few drops of lavender oil in a bath can help to soothe frayed nerves and help you get a good night’s sleep and rubbing the oil into your temples and forehead can relieve headaches. In the home, sachets of dried lavender with some extra oils dribbled in can keep moths and adding a few drops to your laundry’s rinse cycle can eliminate odors from stinky socks and sweaty gym clothes. Add lavender oil to the water you use to wash the floor to freshen up your living space as well.
