As you may have noticed, a number of our products contain essential oils. Sure, they smell great, but what is the real reason they are in our products? This guide was created to showcase the specific essential oils we use in our products, and how they may benefit you.
Lavender is the most commonly used essential oil in the world! This purple plant is best known for its calming effects, but actually has many more uses than meets the eye. The use of lavender oil dates back to 2,500 years ago and is still being studied for its benefits. A 2014 study showed lavender has the potential to naturally reverse diabetes and similar symptoms. This oil has been used as an antibacterial and as an aid in digestive issues. Did you know that it can even restore your skin complexion and reduce acne? This must-have essential oil can be found in our Lavender Lip Balm & Lavender Bath Bomb.
Headaches, nausea, fever, sinus problems, sore joints, itchiness, and allergies can all be turned around by peppermint oil. Peppermint is a hybrid between spearmint and water mint, and naturally contains high levels of menthol, making it a favored oil by those with sore joints. Peppermint is even used for natural energy! This versatile essential oil can be found in our Peppermint Lip Balm & Peppermint Bath Balm.
Lemongrass contains antioxidants and is used as an anti-septic. This citrusy plant is used to treat infections such as ring worms and urinary tract infections. Those of us with oily skin can actually use this oil as an effective cleanser. Lemongrass is also used as a stimulant to the mind and can help combat disorders such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease, so this oil can benefit your whole body, just like lavender and peppermint. Lemongrass oil can be found in our Lemongrass Lip Balm!
Greeks, Romans, Hebrews, and Egyptians all considered the rosemary plant to be sacred. In the modern world, the herb is used in many popular dishes, but what can rosemary oil do? On its own, rosemary oil is known to help aid with pain, making it a wonderful addition to any topical. A little known fact is the oil can make your hair thicker, and in some cases is used to help improve memory! We fell in love with rosemary oil, and you can too by using our Active CBD Oil Super Strength Salve.
