Essential Oils

Posted on Updated on


I love essential oils and use them on a daily basis for a variety of things; in my vaporiser, when having a bath, in massage oils and even when I cook.

Essential oils are so easy to use. You can wear them, diffuse them at home or at work, you can use them when massaging and even when you cook etc.
The oils penetrate the skin and cell membranes. They can actually diffuse throughout the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds! Oils cross the brain-blood barrier and reach the amygdala and other limbic parts of the brain that control our mood, emotions and behavior. This means that you can use oils to help you with stress, anxiety, anger and other emotions we are dealing with.

Essential Oils help the body come back into balance without side effects of chemical based products. They are natural anti inflammatory and can act as pain relief i.e. they are perfect for torn muscles and bone fractures.

Essential Oils are high in antioxidants which means they protect us from  free radicals which can be causing disease.
The oils have also got oxygenating properties which means that they can transport nutrients to cells that are nutrient and/or oxygen deprived.


You can Now purchase Essential Oils and skin Care by visiting Aspire Wellbeing’s DoTerra Essential Oil store.
