Essential oils are becoming something that everyone is interested in trying with the growth in popularity of day spas around the world. And Thai essential oils are becoming a trend as they provide exotic scents and offer something different from the ordinary.
Essential oils are made of plant extracts. The quality of the oils may differ between brands in the concentration of the extracts used. You want to use oils made by a reputable brand that makes high-quality products and packages them responsibly in dark-colored glass containers. Essential oils can dissolve plastic containers. Most reputable brands package their oils in blue or brown small glass containers that also prevent sunlight from damaging the oil.
Therapeutic value of Essential Oils
People buy essential oils for their therapeutic value as well as the pleasant scents they deliver. Certain oils are known to provide certain health benefits. Tea Tree oil is also called melaleuca. It’s known to be an effective treatment for acne, insect bites and athlete’s foot fungus.
Peppermint oil, when applied directly to the temples and scalp, can relieve the pain of a tension headache. And lavender oil is often used to help relieve anxiety and stress and to help people sleep better.
There are instances when people have had reactions to allergies triggered by the use of essential oils. People who have sensitive skin and a history of reactions to topical products should be careful about using the oils directly on the skin. Some of the more problematic oils include:
- Bergamot Oil
- Cinnamon Bark Oil
- Chamomile Oil
- Jasmine Oil
- Lemongrass Oil
- Oregano Oil
- Ylang-ylang Oil
The high concentrations of quality oils can make them more likely to trigger an allergic reaction if used near their full strength. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before applying it to the skin to help avoid these reactions.
Safest Use of Essential Oils
There are three completely safe ways to enjoy essential oils. Try all three and see which ones work best for your needs. Two of them feature essential oils in aromatherapy use, and the other is for applying the oils directly to the body.
There are aroma essential oil inhalers that are also called aroma sticks. These are portable plastic sticks that have an interior absorbent wick that can be infused with essential oils. They come with a cap that’s used to keep the wick from drying out. There are also bracelets, keychains, and necklaces that have wicks in them as well. Just apply some essential oil to them, carry them with you throughout the day and sniff them from time to time.
To absorb the benefits of essential oils directly through your skin, dilute them with a carrier oil such as coconut, jojoba or olive oil. These are popular features of massage spas worldwide.
