Many essential oils are not as well known or highly recognized as others - but their benefits and positive attributes are just as strong and healing. Artemisia pallens, its botanical name, is one of those oils. In our current climate, it's typically referred to as Davana essential oil. As a member of the daisy family, it has amazing restorative and corrective properties. The oil is usually a burnt orange hue with a very thick consistency. It smells pleasant and not too intense or overwhelming. It's wide array of uses is downright impressive.
This essential oil is known to be a great natural remedy for depression and anxiety. It promotes natural relaxation in the body by lowering blood pressure and dissipating stress hormones. It promotes positive energy, mental clarity, peace and even helps those experiencing the severe effects of a trauma. Some mental rehabilitation centers, which focus on healing not strictly through prescription medication, use this oil to help alleviate depression and anxiety in its patients.
Antiseptic And Disinfectant
The oil naturally cleans wounds and can be used to dress them after they are tended to. The oil is powerful enough to fight off any infections that may threaten the weakened or injured area. This can be used for a simple cut, insect bite, or a serious abrasion. It fights off any type of bacteria, microbe, fungi or virus that may have already found its way to the wound.
If you suffer from any type of respiratory issue, such as asthma, seasonal allergies or a tough cough, this is a perfect natural aid. The components in the artemisia pallens plant help to loosen the phlegm that gets lodged in the respiratory system. This allows you to breathe better and to grasp fuller, deeper breaths. It helps to dissipate the congestion that can build, get caught in the chest, and cause a series of serious issues. Put a couple of drops in a diffuser or humidifier and allow it to fill the room. You'll be breathing better in no time.
Due to its natural propensity to promote relaxation, this essential oil is known to help women through their painful menstrual cycles. It does this by helping to normalize blood flow in the uterus and pelvis to promote normal menstruation. Those who have irregular periods, or no period at all, will benefit greatly from this oil as it will correct their cycle. Try rubbing a few drops of the oil on the lower abdomen to help relief menstrual cramps, bloating, nausea and mood swings.
One of the issues many have when switching to all natural products is the inability to find good fragrances and perfumes that don't have harmful chemicals and additives. This oil can be used as a natural, long-lasting perfume. Its smell is unique, yet enticing. A couple of drops go a long way and the staying power is pretty impressive. You're guaranteed to smell unlike anyone else in the room.
