Sourced from the Ocimum basilicum plant, basil essential oil is said to offer a variety of health benefits.
Basil essential oil contains a number of compounds thought to enhance health. These compounds include linalool, a substance also found in lavender that’s been shown to reduce stress in several scientific studies.
Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils used in aromatherapy. Distilled from the plant Lavandula angustifolia, the oil promotes relaxation and believed to treat anxiety, fungal infections, allergies, depression, insomnia, eczema, nausea, and menstrual cramps.
Add a few drops of amber oil to your diffuser just before bedtime. Get comfortable and breathe in the woodsy scent as you fall asleep. The fragrance will remain in the room all night, enabling a deep and restful sleep. Combine with avender or bergamot essential oils to increase relaxation.
Similar to lavender, cedarwood is thought to be good for detoxifying and clearing negative emotions. Because inhaling cedarwood triggers the release of serotonin in the brain which converts to melatonin, the essential oil is known for its sedative qualities and usefulness in treating insomnia.
