While most essential oils tend to have a more universally understood name attributed to them, that's not the case for Sugandha Kokila oil. This oil, which is indigenous to India, is extracted from the dried berries of the plant by the same name. The aroma is musky, dark and spicy. The therapeutic aspects of the oil are expansive as it has carminative, relaxant, antimicrobial, astringent, digestive and anti-arthritic properties, just to name a few.
Many of the ancient doctors and healers state that any type of illness was the opportunity for Ayurveda, which is the perception that the process of healing is both restorative and spiritual. So in a way, sickness is an opportunity to get to the root of the issue and find out how to better obtain overall health, which is vital to wellness. Some would argue that this is a stance that many people in our Western culture should adopt. We are so inundated with media, our own responsibilities and the ubiquitous pressure that a harmful, toxic medication and a quick fix is all we search for. However, there are other, better, more long-lasting methods out there.
Natural Analgesic Properties
Sugandha Kokila helps to ease pain and lessen inflammation. The natural analgesic properties makes it a great pain-killer. It does this by enhancing the circulation of blood and increasing the contraction of blood vessels. This allows pain to be lessened and the affected skin to calm down. This makes the oil an amazing remedy in treating sprains, muscular pain, rheumatism, arthritis and inflamed joints. Try massaging the area that hurts with a few drops of the oil and another base oil like olive or coconut oil. It will help to relieve the tension and increase blood circulation.
The oil is also known to be a great stress reliever. Just inhaling the scent will provide relief from tension headaches, fear, nervousness, anxiety and the inability to concentrate. Try soaking in a bath with a few drops of Sugandha Kokila and lavender for a sense of renewed peace and restorative mental clarity. This oil will help clear your mind and provide you with a sense of tranquility.
Natural Immune System Booster
Also quite the immune system booster, this oil has stunning properties that can also help you ward off common viruses, bacteria and medical conditions. Compromised immune systems are what lead to many of the health issues that are experienced at a high rate in our society. If we took better care of our bodies and our health, through preventative, natural measures, the occurrences of these issues would surely decrease. The antiseptic and antimicrobial properties of the oil help ward off infections and naturally strengthen the system. The expectorant and decongestant help the respiratory system when you are suffering from heightened levels of mucus production, coughs and allergies.
Though the name is a bit of a tongue twister, this oils abilities are deeply impressive and should be praised. Why search for other methods of relief or healing when the best option is likely something as simple and as readily available as an essential oil? Invest in your health!
