By Elliot Caleira

Chances are, you have a friend that is crazy about essential oils. They seem to be taking the media by storm, and there are stories about them everywhere you go. So, what are they you may ask? They are a lot more than just smell good scents in a bottle. They have so many benefits that will help improve your everyday life.

Help Balance Hormones

If you find yourself taking pills every day in order to balance your hormone levels, there are some essential oils you may want to check out. There are a few oils that could potentially help balance your estrogen, progesterone, thyroid and even testosterone levels. Other oils, including clary sage, geranium, and thyme, could help to balance out a woman’s estrogen and progesterone levels. Doing this could help fix conditions like infertility and PCOS. When suffering from infertility, anything is worth a shot. It can also help relieve period pains and menopause symptoms. No more period cramps? Sign me up!

For men, there are even certain oils that can help lower cortisol levels. Doing so can increase mood, as well as testosterone levels. This can also help increase a man’s libido.

Fight Germs

If you feel like you are constantly catching something all the time, it may be time to look into essential oils. Not only can certain oils boost your immunity, but it can kill germs right in their tracks. There are multiple oils out there such as lemon, thyme, and cinnamon can help stop the spread of germs.

Many oils can be diluted with water and sprayed throughout the house. This homemade and natural creation is just as strong as many cleaners that you can buy at the store. They also smell a lot better as well! You won’t have to wonder if what you’re spraying throughout your entire home is child or pet safe.

Make sure you are buying them from a reputable source, like Young Living Essential Oils, because not all oils are created equally! With increased popularity, comes increased interest in trying to break into the market. Always read labels to ensure they are pure and natural.

Increase Your Energy

Running on very little sleep is unfortunately a reality that many people face. Between crazy work schedules, and kids that are revolting against bedtime, adults don’t get enough sleep. A constant and large intake is not good for the body, so essential oils are a great way to help you make it through the day without a nap.

There are oils on the market that are said to increase oxygen levels to the brain, which can help you feel energized, happy, and focused. One oil that is said to help someone wake up and start their day is peppermint oil. It has been reported to even help increase athletic performance as well. If you aren’t a peppermint fan, grapefruit and lemon oil are two other great options to look into.

Soothe Sore Muscles

Many athletes and active people often find themselves having to stock up on strong smelling creams and ointments to help relieve muscle pain. That scent is not for everyone and can be very off-putting. Luckily, there are oils that work just as well and smell way better!

Oils can be applied directly to the skin and massaged in. A couple of great options include frankincense, thyme, peppermint, and ginger. But, another cool thing about these oils that even just breathing them in and diffusing them can help your muscles. Wild right?

As you can see, there are multiple uses for the same oils. How many products out there can help fight germs, as well as soothe your sore muscles? Essential oils are truly groundbreaking and life-changing. They are also all natural, and not full of manmade chemicals. Pick up a few different kinds and I promise you won’t regret it for a second. You will be wondering how you have spent your entire life without them.
