Ever since the evolution of life on our planet, diseases and disorders have always come to one and all. Since ancient times, humans have relied on medicines of various kinds to overcome such conditions. With the development of science and research, we have a plethora of medicines today which make us ‘going’. I personally believe that we use and rely on allopathic, anti-biotic and anti-dote medicines much in excess than we really should.
You can easily find a ‘gulp-a-pill’ for anything and everything – yes, literally everything! Right from cuts and wounds to pre and post surgery recuperation, from aching muscles to emotional draining, upset stomach to loss of libido – there is ‘pill’ recommended. Have you ever given it a thought on how this excessive consumption of ‘unnatural’ things is causing ‘destruction within our body? A little dose is what they are meant for, I think and believe. So adopting a ‘Natural’ way of healthy living would be a bright idea! What say, eh?
When I talk about going ‘Natural’, it obviously means benefits to be derived from various plants and trees that have been existing on Earth since billions of years and are best known ‘Natural’ sources of ‘Healing’. The first thing which comes to my mind is the most vital and important part of the plants and trees – their ‘lifeline’. You are spot-on if you said essential oils!
We all know how natural and pure essential oils are useful for us as for their innumerable health benefits. Here is a list of some more of my favorite essential oils that you may consider and choose for various health benefits!
Frankincense essential oil
The 100% pure and organic Frankincense essential oil emits a sweet, pleasing and warm scent that both stimulates and elevates the mind. It is famed for its comforting properties that assist the mind to focus better and more and overcome the negativity, stress and despair. It is very useful for visualizing and centering of thoughts and hence connecting with spirituality and one meditates easily. The essential oil of Frankincense is considered as the ‘Holy Anointing Oil’ in the Middle East countries, where it has been integral to religious ceremonies for thousands of years.
