22 Top naturally disinfecting essential oils

Friday, September 26th, 2014

essential oilsWhen it comes to staying clean and killing germs, there are two main types of cleansing products you can use: those formulated with synthetic detergents, and those that are formulated with naturally disinfecting essential oils. Though detergent-based soaps and cleansers tend to dominate the market today, choosing cleansers that achieve their disinfectant properties with pure essential oils may be the better choice for you in the long run.

The essential oils of lemon, lavender, and eucalyptus, in particular, all have strong antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, and antifungal properties.

While synthetic detergents do effectively kill germs, they also spread their chemical-derived ingredients all over the area you’re trying to clean. This becomes a particularly problematic side effect when the area you’re trying to clean is your body, as almost all synthetic detergents are quite drying to skin, and can also induce allergic reactions in some people with sensitivities to their chemical ingredients.

Naturally disinfectant essential oils, on the other hand, can be just as effective at removing harmful bacteria and other grime from your skin without drying it out or causing you to experience allergies. In fact, many disinfecting essential oils also help replenish your skin’s natural moisture and oil as an added bonus.

Essential Oils for Greater Healing and Beauty

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

If you’re interested in aromatherapy, you likely already know that long before the days of mass-marketed pharmaceuticals, essential oils played a vital role not only in the fragrance industry, but also in healing – as they were used as natural, herbal remedies for many common ailments.  A fact of which you may not yet be aware, however, is that almost all of the folk traditions surrounding the use of essential oils for healing purposes have scientific evidence to support their herbal claims.

essential oil peppermintIn fact, many essential oils serve as the active ingredient (under a different name) in many over-the-counter and prescription medications. For example, the essential oil of peppermint is used in the prescription digestive aid Colperin, and many other drugs intended to treat indigestion (ever wonder why Peptol Bismol tastes minty?)

Though industry regulation prohibits anyone from claiming that essential oils can cure, prevent, or treat any injury or illness completely, there are many oils in addition to peppermint oil that have been shown to have beneficial effects on the human mind and body when applied topically or through steam inhalation. If you are interested in experimenting with essential oils for folk remedies, this chart of common essential oils for folk medicine should help you decide which ones you may wish to try.

One of the many reasons so many essential oils have been shown to be beneficial to health is that nearly all of them have disinfectant properties. So the next time you want to eliminate a foul-smelling odor from your home, instead of reaching for that aerosol can of chemical-based air freshener, you may wish to try making your own natural spray with one or more of these disinfecting essential oils.

Essential oils also make great natural skin care solutions. When used topically, they can help normalize troubled skin, help reduce the appearance of cellulite or wrinkles, and give your skin a golden glow unmatched by any synthetic body moisturizer. Additionally, essential oils will not linger in your skin’s deep layers and/or clog your pores as synthetic cosmetics so often do  (and if they do remain in your system to some degree after accomplishing their aromatherapy purpose, there’s no harm to you, as they are infusing your body with natural vitamins and moisture – not chemicals.)

If you are interested in learning more about the healing powers of essential oils, consider scheduling an aromatherapy massage with a local aromatherapist. Not only will it feel great, but it will give you the opportunity to discuss your aromatherapy goals with a professional and discover which oils you should try using at home. Who knows? He or she may even recommend you purchase your essential oils from Castle Baths!
