I was kindly contacted by Eden’s Semilla, a brand who sells essential oils on Amazon here, to trial their new range after previously working with them before. I have to say I am thoroughly impressed by their products and love them just as much as the previous!
I don’t feel like there’s much coverage on how to use all the oils so I thought I’d just sum up some of their uses for you, although there are so many ways!!
The best oils to use are tea tree, peppermint, rosemary and jojoba oil as they all combat dryness, particularly on the scalp. They’re best mixed with a teaspoon of coconut oil and left in for 5 minutes before washing out. You shouldn’t be finding those frizzy bits anymore after using this method!
Tea tree is probably one of the most commonly known products for skincare, due to The Body Shop’s big releases with it. It can be used by itself in small quantities but is better mixed into your face wash, in order to dry out spots and hopefully get rid of them faster! Rosemary and Bergamot will work in a similar way. Lemongrass works as an insect repellent, which will be particularly handy on those hot summer days! Sandalwood works as an antiseptic, although I haven’t tried this one out before! Lavender is my most used. When you’ve burnt from the sun, mix it with some aloe vera gel and it should take the pain, redness and swelling down a lot!
All of these can be burnt along with water in the special holder or added to the bath. My favourite scents for this are cinnamon, lavender, pine tree, sweet orange, rosemary and frankincense. Lavender also works really well on your pillow to help you fall asleep.
This post was a bit different so I really hoped you liked it. If you have any other uses for these oils, please let me know as I would love to try them out.
