The linaloe berry - an essential oil that is fairly unknown - has many positive aspects to its natural composition that are helpful. It has soothing and relaxing properties that make it a hit in the aromatherapy world. It has a fresh scent that often resembles citrus, floral, sweet and soft - nothing too overpowering and a nice scent to enjoy in various parts of your home. You can even use it on your wrists as a substitute for fragrance if you'd like, as it's very gentle and subtle. Here are some of the most explored and studied ways that this oil can help.
Since it is similar to lavender and bergamot essential oil, linaloe oil can be used to increase your mental clarity and liven your mood. This is because it has naturally calming effects on the brain. If you find that sometimes you suffer with negative moods or can't concentrate, or have a hard time staying focused, you may want to add this relatively unknown oil to your aromatherapy staples. It is known to be emotionally uplifting. Add a couple of drops to your oil lamp or diffuser.
This oil is a powerful antispasmodic, which means that it helps to relieve pain from various parts of the body including pain caused by muscle spasms, injury or soreness from excessive exercise. We've all been there. You work extra hard at the gym or you run a bit longer than your body is used to and you feel the pain start to localize a couple of hours later. Don't worry. This oil will help to lessen that pain and discomfort as it's a natural anti-inflammatory. Add a couple of drops to a carrier oil such as coconut or jojoba oil and then massage the mixture into the affected parts of your body.
If you notice your sinuses acting up when the seasons change, you are probably susceptible to seasonal allergies. When the weather changes, you notice that your nose gets a bit stuffed up, you sneeze much more and it becomes harder to breathe. Due to the anti-inflammatory properties of this oil, it will help to alleviate and calm down the sneezing. It will also help your congestion and eliminate the phlegm that tends to build up as a result. Try the inhalation method by adding a couple of drops of the oil to steaming hot water and breathing it in. Also works in a humidifier.
Whether you have oily, dry or combination skin, this is the type of oil that will work regardless of skin type. By adding this essential oil to your regular skincare cream, you'll be helping to rejuvenate your skin by activating the tissue there and helping to regenerate the cells. This helps to battle signs of premature aging, sagging skin or fine lines and wrinkles - an exceptional way to combat signs of aging, which we all want to curb as much as we can. Its also great for fading stretch marks and soothing irritated red skin.
