Rejuvenate Your Skin with Helichrysum Oil!

doTERRA-Helichrysum-Essential-Oil-Uses

Helichrysum Oil is known as one of the best essential oils for skin. Helichrysum oil holds rejuvenating benefits that can help to promote a healthy-looking complexion. We all want that don’t we? With chemical components that can help improve the appearance of skin, Helichrysum oil is a wonderfully smart addition to any skin care regimen. One of the greatest benefits of Helichrysum oil is that it provides a safe, natural way to improve your skin. So many commercial cleansers and moisturizers on the market contain harmful toxins, but using a pure essential oil like Helichrysum to improve the skin allows you to keep your skin clean and protected.

Here are some ways that you can use Helichrysum to improve your skin:

- Dilute and rub helichrysum with myrrh onto wrinkles and stretch marks.
- Apply topically to scars and wounds to support the renewal of the skin.

Helichrysum is a go-to oil for wounds as well! Keep it in your Home First Aid or Travel First Aid Kits. Apply it topically to scrapes or cuts to help blood coagulate.

There are so many uses for Helichrysum Oil. It really is one of your skin’s best friends. Combine it with myrrh for anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial, and antifungal effects. Combine it with lavender for antibacterial, regenerative, soothing, analgesic, antihistamine, and astringent effects. Helichrysum blends beautifully with both of these essential oils as a lovely remedy for many skin issues.

Melaleuca Essential Oil: Great for Hair and Skin!

Melaleuca

Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has range of applications. What I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. I often put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. Do you have a pimple popping up? Dab a drop of melaleuca right on the area in the morning and at night and leave it alone…it will disappear! I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo. You can also give yourself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Fractionated Coconut Oil! I haven’t tried that one yet, but I’d like to.

BONUS!!!
Here’s another amazing benefit of Melaleuca…especially during this season. If you’re suffering from a scratchy or sore throat, add a drop or two of Melaleuca to a glass of warm water and gargle. Your throat will INSTANTLY feel better- I promise. Do that 2-3 times per day until you are feeling back to normal. I have tried and tested this many times and have never been disappointed.

Melaleuca plant

Melaleuca oil has so many cleansing and purifying properties. It really is an oil that you need to have in your home at all times.

Rest Well with Essential Oils.

Essential oils for peaceful sleep

In our family we use essential oils for just about any challenge that comes up, whether it be a stuffy nose, tummy upset, occasional muscle soreness, or needing to energize during a busy day. One of the health issues that I hear about a lot as I talk to people about wellness is the need for better rest. This is not a surprise to me. We live fast-paced lives, don’t we? Our days are often scheduled from the moment we wake up until the minute our heads hit the pillow. Sometimes it’s hard for us to turn our brains off. We aren’t the only ones who deal with this issue! Our children are dealing with it too. Did you know that people who sleep less are almost three times more likely to get a cold compared to those who get at least eight hours of sleep?

Here are some ways to encourage your body to get the rest that it needs so that you and your family can wake up refreshed and ready for your day:

*Exercise in the morning or afternoon rather than the evening.
*Turn off your T.V., tablet, laptop, or phone at least one hour before bedtime. According to one study, using your device one hour before bedtime reduces your melatonin by at least 20%! Kids can benefit from this rule too.
*Take a calming bath before bedtime. A couple of my favorite calming bath oils are lavender and Serenity Calming blend. Add a couple of drops to some Epsom salts before adding the salts to the bath water OR add a drop or two to a capful of milk, swirl to mix, and add it to your bath water. *Oils will sit on top of the water if they are not combined with an emulsifier and could cause skin irritation.
*Read or journal before bed. Getting your thoughts down on paper can help quiet the chatter in your head and reading can calm you before drifting off to sleep.
*Diffuse a calming oil in an essential oil diffuser, such as the Petal Diffuser. Vetiver is wonderful when combined with Lavender. Serenity is always a winner too.
*Use a noisemaker to cancel out sounds that might keep you from falling asleep. I love the soft trickling sound of the Petal Diffuser next to my bed. I find it very relaxing!

Do you find yourself waking during the night? Try applying a combination of dōTERRA’s Restful blend and the Restful Complex softgels before you lay down and see what happens. I think you’ll find that you will have one of the best sleeps that you’ve had in a long time, completely naturally and without any fogginess in the morning. That sounds amazing, doesn’t it?
