How To Prepare Your Holidays with EOs Reading Best Essential Oils For Winter 3 minutes Next GIFT GUIDE 2022

Throughout the winter months, there are times when we can all feel a little low. The drop in temperature and reduced daylight hours can make us feel flat and lacking in energy. We naturally feel the need to stay indoors, keep warm and reserve our energy.

 

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is thought to be the result of a lack of exposure to natural light during the dark winter months. This can change our hormone levels, causing low moods, craving comfort food, interruptions in sleep patterns and depleted energy.

Essential Oils are valuable during the colder months not only for their scents, especially those with bright, cheerful, invigorating, and warming fragrances, but also for the anti-bacterial property that many are reputed to exhibit, which helps to facilitate recovery from seasonal illnesses. Furthermore, many of them are known to help ease stiffness and body aches that may arise from shoveling snow or simply from long-term exposure to cold air.

 

Popular Essential Oils for cold weather include the floral and citrus oils, such as Lemon, Lavender, Grapefruit, and Ylang Ylang – which have uplifting and calming scents that are said to have mood-boosting and uplifting effects on the mind. Oils with cooling qualities, such as Eucalyptus and Peppermint, are commonly used to address symptoms of colds, as they have clarifying and energizing qualities that are reputed to reduce the discomforts of congestion and body aches.

Essential oils can awaken your dulled senses and lift your spirits during the gloomy weather, and since many of them are antibacterial and antiviral they can help fight off winter ailments too. This is where aromatherapy becomes the perfect tonic for the winter season.

PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL

Peppermint is like breathing in a fluffy white snow cloud and when combined with eucalyptus it can do wonders for your respiratory system. It's one of the world's oldest medicinal herbs and also one of the most versatile.

You could use peppermint when you travel, especially when on a long plane or car ride. It's invigorating, anti-bacterial, and also great for combatting nausea. It works wonders when you're on the go and feeling a little stressed holiday season.

Lemon essential oils are known for their uplifting and energizing properties and this is my go to for fighting off the winter blues. Lemon is great to use throughout the day when you are feeling low of energy, skip the coffee and go for our Lemon Essential Oil. A couple of drops of this and you will be happy + ready to go!

 

EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL

This oil does wonders in the winter for anything relating to cold and flu. It really works to open your respiratory system when you're all stuffed up. I like to put a few drops on my chest if I come down with a cold and I also add a few drops to a wash cloth and bring it in the shower or add a few drops to a bath.
