Essential oils are substances found in different plant tissues that contain a large variety of natural chemical compounds. These compounds are used as home remedies for many types of ailments.
Essential oils penetrate deep and provide their wellness properties to each little corner of the body.
Each essential oil offers specific properties from the plant it is extracted from; for example, one particular essential oil can be sedating, anti-bacterial or analgesic. However, all essential oils are antibiotic, regenerating, and antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, blood circulation stimulating, emotional balancing, immuno-stimulating and antiviral.
Despite the various means of administration, HERBI FEET recommends our essential oils for use on the skin. As they penetrate the different layers of the skin, they also access the bloodstream and spread throughout the body. Yet in spite of the general effect on the body, the epidermis receives the greatest benefit with their habitual use as they moisturise, nourish, regenerate and stimulate it.
Some of the most commonly used essential oils include tea tree oil, because of its antibacterial and disinfectant power, sweet almond oil, due to the moisturizing and curative action, and rose hip oil, to fight wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.
In short, they are a wonderful option for many everyday health and beauty problems, and we should all have them in our houses.
