The Best Essential Oils for Healing and Relaxation
If you are new to using essential oils, you may be wondering - what are the unique benefits of daily use? What are the most positive effects which essential oils could possibly have on my life? How do I seamlessly incorporate them into my day-to-today routine? In this article, I will be discussing Nityalife’s best products for healing and relaxation, and exactly how to use them for the best results. The following oils that I am about to review are considered to have powerful healing qualities for both mind and body.
Nitya Manuka Essential Oil
Manuka oil is sourced from New Zealand and is extracted by steaming, from the leaves of the Myrtaceae tree family, which just so happens to be the same variation of plants that tea tree comes from. Historically, Manuka oil and manuka honey have been used since ancient times for their medicinal benefits such as antibacterial and anti-inflammation.
The Main Benefits
Manuka oil is amazing for supporting a healthy immune system, soothing allergies, balancing hormones, fighting joint pain, and can even aid in respiratory problems. This is due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
This magical essential oil also has many beauty benefits such as naturally healing acne prone skin, due to the fact that manuka encourages cell regrowth and regeneration. These properties also apply to anti-aging and overall, allows your skin to look bright, youthful and flawless if used consistently.
Manuka has a rich and spicey scent much like incense which is super relaxing and induces restfulness. These qualities also make it a fantastic oil for using while meditating, doing yoga, or just before you go to bed.
Directions for Use
To use efficiently, add 3-4 drops into your diffuser and allow the oil to disperse throughout the room. Try to find time to relax, meditate, or read a book while the is inhaled and absorbed by the body and skin. Use for around 30 – 60 minutes, between one and three times per day. For acne, blemishes, or cuts and scratches, simply add one drop to the affected area and gently rub into the skin to allow it to absorb.
Nitya Myrtle Essential Oil
Myrtle was first discovered all the way back in ancient Greek times, where it was considered a luxury and was only reserved for the most noble and wealthiest citizens. It was also with the Goddess of love and peace herself, Aphrodite, so it is easy to see how important this plant was to people even thousands of years ago. The plant itself is sourced from the Mediterranean and western Asia, and is extracted from the leaves, flower, and stem of the Myrus Communis tree.
The Main Benefits
Myrtle oil has an array of healing properties that make it utterly unique and highly sought after. This includes reducing the risk of infection to wounds and alleviating respiratory problems as asthma. Due to it containing the compound myricetins, it is known to help balance blood sugar levels and therefore prevent early symptoms of diabetes.
It is also a very relaxing oil to use when you are stressed, suffering from anxiety or depression, this is once again because of the compound myricetin which can be found in myrtle, which helps to clear the mind and uplift the spirits.
The scent of this oil is fresh, natural with a slight sweetness which awakens the senses so it is lovely to use while getting ready in the morning.
Directions for use
There are many ways to use myrtle oil in your daily routine, and all are equally as beneficial. For example, you could directly apply it to the effected areas of the skin where you feel tension or muscle pain, or add a few drops to your diffuser. Why not have an ultra-relaxing bath by adding 5-10 drops into the water and deeply inhaling the steam, as this will benefit your skin, your mind, and your body internally.
Many people have also found benefit in making other products infused with the oil, such as candles and soaps. The possibilities are truly endless.
Self-care is so important, especially this year when life has been a little stressful for everyone. Essential oils will help you to relax, unwind, and restore, without costing you an arm and a leg! The Manuka oil is available for only $20.99 and the myrtle oil is only $17.99 from our Nitya range, and as you can see, you truly get your money’s worth with such a vast list of health benefits both inside and out.
