Aromatherapy Oils

Some of us look forward to winter – preferring cold weather to the scorching heat of the summer. Winter means thick wool coats, a mug of chocolate, your favorite book, hibernating until your body’s had enough sleep. There are a lot of things you can only enjoy during winter. But studies show that winter affects some people in a negative way.

There are some of us who suffer from seasonal affective disorder and tend to feel depressed during winter. Feeling stressed and lonely affects how you look especially if it affects your rest. If you are one of these people, here are some aromatherapy oils you can keep beside your bed for a relaxing and warm night.

Juniper Berry Oil

This oil comes with a crisp and earthy scent. Its woody aroma is perfect for winter, where the flora and the usual liveliness are covered with snow or the gray clouds. Recover from feelings of stress and anxiety with its comforting fragrance.

Myrrh Essential Oil

This oil has a woody scent with a slight hint of balsamic. It helps stabilize the immune system to get you through the cold days. Another perk of using this oil for aromatherapy is that it warms the body up. It soothes the user from the inside and even keeps signs of depression away.

Topical Oils

Essential oils are not far behind when it comes to skin and hair care. What you need during the long stretch of winter are natural essential oils that moisturize. Your number one enemy during winter is the lack of humidity. It robs your skin off of its natural moisture which leads to drying and dullness. It often causes worse skin conditions such as flaking and cracking.

The same goes for your hair. You suffer from the lack of moisture and more. The strands tend to get frizzy and wiry which is hard to manage. Avoid these hair and skin care concerns by having these topical oils at hand.

Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is not only famous for its soothing aroma. It is also a great skin oil which provides heavy moisture to keep the skin hydrated. It is also anti-inflammatory and prevents puffiness.

Sandalwood Essential Oil

Popular not only for its therapeutic effects for the mind, sandalwood oil also works as a natural skin tonic. It is safe to use on skin that is dry or suffering from other conditions such as acne.

Coconut Oil

Probably one of the most well-known oils in the world, coconut oil is a common moisturizer. Your thick hair that gets hard to manage will transform into shiny and soft locks once you apply some coconut oil.

Cedarwood Oil

Dry and dullness are possible to chase away with cedarwood oil. This extract has great moisturizing ability. It soothes dryness away and is even perfect for oily skin.

Olive Oil

Keep your hair shiny and bouncy even during a dreary day. For thin hair, using olive oil helps protect hair from the risks of breakage and hair fall. The abundance of omega 3 that it contains will improve the health of your hair and make it look and feel thicker.
