Different Ways To Use Essential Oils

The most common uses for essential oils are inhalation (inhalation) and application to the skin (topically). Most of them are simple and easy to incorporate into your daily routine, whether you inhale the benefits, apply them topically to your skin, or use them in food preparation. Essential oils have been used not only for aromatherapy, but also for personal hygiene, cleaning, and even their natural healing properties. When it comes to essential oils, everyone knows how to place them in a diffuser to reap the benefits of aromatherapy.

The antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties of many oils make them an essential part of any good first aid kit, and some essential oils can also help us sleep better, ease digestion, soothe sore muscles, and heal skin problems. For many oils, there are special considerations here, as well as special instructions for use by children or those with sensitive skin. You will learn how to use essential oils by inhaling them through a diffuser, topically on the skin or inside. Aromatherapy baths are a common practice that can combine some features of the topical and diffuse application.

There are many different types of diffusers, from simple candles to those that plugin and spray an oil-rich mist. You will add a few drops of water and the oil of your choice to the diffuser, after which the device will create steam that will diffuse slightly around the room. Use lavender and chamomile oils in a diffuser or put a few drops on a tissue and inhale regularly. Clear your mind, then inhale directly from an open bottle or rub a drop of oil between your palms and inhale the fragrance.

Then add a few drops of the oil of your choice to a cup of whole milk or a few tablespoons of olive oil. Or you can add about 5 drops of your favourite oil to a towel and place it on the floor away from the full force of the water, or hold it close to your face for a more intense impact. Alternatively, mix the same oils in warm water and apply a sponge to feverish skin to reduce fever. You can also apply the oil in the morning, allowing the perfume to dry out a little before bed.

Consider creating a jasmine oil fragrance (mix three drops of jasmine oil with one ounce of jojoba oil) or simply apply some diluted lavender to areas of your body where you would normally wear perfume. If your skin loves lavender, you can use up to 50-50 mixtures of half lavender oil and half carrier oil in your DIY products. I find the scent of sweet orange oil so fragrant that you only need a small amount of oil if you are making your own.

A method is to use eucalyptus oil topically, mixing a few drops of the oil with sweet almond or coconut oil and applying it to the outside of your throat. If you’re using the oil topically, test them first by mixing a few drops with a barrier agent (such as coconut oil), applying it to a small area, and watching your skin react.

When using in the bathroom, it is more important to mix the oil with the barrier first, as oil and water do not mix. Mack also dismisses the idea that applying essential oils to the soles of the feet is the best way to absorb their properties. For most people, applying the oil to the insteps, hands, wrists, neck, and behind the ears generally produces better and more consistent results, Mack says. 

They also recommend using mint, eucalyptus or rosemary to remove stronger odours like cigarettes. When added to the feet, soothing oils like ylang-ylang or bergamot can create wonderful aromatherapy, and a drop of peppermint oil on the forehead can help relieve headaches.

If you’re looking for a safer way to get rid of bed bugs, you can try several methods, such as tea tree oil or lavender oil. To inhale aromatherapy oil, simply open the product bottle and take a few deep breaths. The aromatic uses of essential oils don’t always require a diffuser, as you can get the same health benefits by simply placing a few drops of the essential oil in the palm of your hand, then placing your hand on your nose and breathing deeply.

If you’re not sure which oil to use, lavender is a great snack that’s been proven to help you fall asleep. Typically, about six drops of oil are more than enough to scent a room, but you may need to add more if you prefer a stronger fragrance. Because ingestion is only recommended under a doctor’s supervision and with special oils intended for ingestion (ask a consultant or your doctor if you’re unsure), we’ll focus on the best ways to use essential oils by inhaling and applying to the skin.

With addiction to prescription opioids reaching alarming levels, many people with conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety are seeking to relieve symptoms through safer, more natural home remedies like essential oils. The use of aromatherapy or essential oils dates back thousands of years since the ancient Egyptians first lit incense made from fragrant woods, herbs and spices. When used properly, essential oils and aromatherapy can be part of a safe and successful strategy for treating symptoms such as insomnia, stress and anxiety, especially when symptoms including insomnia recur over weeks, months or even years. 

A Plus Size Woman was Refused to Try on XL Sweater by Walmart Employee

  • It was all caught on Camera

Recently, a Canadian women was in a state of shock when she was told that she was not allowed to try on any clothes or womens shoes at retail giant Walmart because the clothes were at risk of being stretched out of shape by her.

The plus size clothing blogger was Shiann Friesen who has a very successful Youtube channel called ShiCurves. Apparently she was taking part in something called vlogmas’ where vbloggers create a new video for every day in December. According to the Dailymail in the UK, she was carrying a handful of clothes to the change rooms when she was approached by an employee. All the clothing was in her size and not smaller. After being told she could not try on the clothes, as she would ruin them, she started recoding the conversation on her phone.

The conversation in part went:

‘Don’t try to put something on that’s obviously not going to fit, that’s all I’m asking,’ She then grabs the hangers out of Shiann’s hand.

‘Don’t stretch it. I’m not trying to be impertinent or anything,’ The Walmart employee then notices she is being recorded.

The older woman is seen in the resulting video stating: ‘Don’t try to push it.’

Shiann then puts her camera away so as to avoid being asked by the woman to delete the footage.

When she got back to her car under the street lighting, she recorded another clip where she explained how horrified she was at the woman’s behaviour. She said ‘I am honestly so taken aback right now, I am so shocked.’ She also claimed that the Walmart employee had also made some rude comments to her.

‘That was straight up discrimination!’ she went on to add.

In a follow-up video which she posted last week, she said that she told the woman that she planned on buying the sweater and womens boots anyway. That’s why she wanted to take it into the fitting room with her. Once she tried it on and told the employee that it actually fit, she was told that it was too small for her.

She then asked the employee to repeat her instructions about ‘not stretching’ the clothes with the intent on others hearing it. She told the employee that she was being discriminated against to which the employee replied that she was following company policy. ‘I asked management and it is NOT company policy at all!’ Shiann says in her follow-up video.

When it was all over, Shiann claims she went to customer service to lodge a complaint. Allegedly she was met with little action from the manager on duty.

‘All she said to me was: “Oh, I apologize, I will talk to her,” She later added in the video she later called Walmart customer service because she didn’t want to just ‘let it go’.

The story continues no doubt for this plus sized blogger……….
