We all know the power of scent: how a perfume reminds you of your mother, or the smell of a certain restaurant reminds you of your first date. But did you know that some scents can improve your health and well-being? Essential oils have the power to help you sleep or relax, improve your mental state, and even improve your skin or digestion.
Essential oils can have a healing effect mentally, physically, and emotionally, and are best used by either inhaling directly, or through using a diffuser or humidifier, or applied directly to the skin when mixed with a carrier oil, like almond or jojoba.
Technically speaking, essential oils aren’t oils at all, as they lack fatty acids. In fact, they’re highly-concentrated plant components. It can take an incredible amount of a plant to extract a small portion of essential oil – 4,000 pounds of Bulgarian roses are needed for just one pound of oil, for example. Other plants like lavender only require 100 pounds of plant material to produce a pound of essential oil.
Humidew’s essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted oils, meaning you’re not paying for a carrier oil or additives. Harness the power and benefits of scent and essential oil for you and your home.
