pine needle, cedarwood & sage
Bring the outside, inside!
Pine needle oil has a warming effect on sore joints and muscles and helps to unblock your sinuses and ease breathing. It’s also a very grounding oil to revitalise the mind and spirit by reliving tension, exhaustion and stress.
Cedarwood shares some of the same qualities as pine needle oil, as it also relieves tension and stress in the body. It is also said to help with focus and concentration and can combat feelings of negativity.
Sage is used in the process of ‘smudging’, where the leaves of the Sage plant are burned, and the smoke is directed into and onto areas that are in need of clearing and protection.
Pine Needle Oil Benefits
The health benefits of pine oil also include some emotional benefits. It creates an energized feeling and is effective for removing mental stress from any number of sources. It is also used medicinally for removing adrenal fatigue and refreshing your spirits since it is an excellent mood elevator. Getting regularly massaged with pine essential oil can give you mental clarity, and it relieves anxiety and nervous tension. Finally, it has been shown to be quite useful for people suffering from weakened concentration and memory loss.
Pine essential oil is very helpful for curing respiratory problems and is commonly used as a remedy for cold and cough. This is due to its abilities as an expectorant, meaning that it loosens phlegm and mucus from the respiratory tracts and makes it easier to eliminate them.
Cedarwood Oil Benefits
The scent can induce the release of serotonin, which is converted into melatonin in the brain. Melatonin induces a calm and restorative sleep. For this reason, cedarwood aromatherapy is recommended for people with chronic anxiety, stress, and depression.
In its function as a sedative, cedarwood essential oil can also induce total body relaxation while gently ridding your mind of intrusive thoughts—in short, a perfect recipe for getting some snooze. When used as your oil of choice for aromatherapy, cedarwood may also facilitate the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that’s converted by your brain into melatonin to promote uninterrupted and restorative sleep.
Whenever you feel like the worries of the world are weighing you down, give cedarwood oil a nice long whiff, or put some on your diffuser and bask in its fragrance. Doing this could help promote the production of serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that’s also responsible for improving and stabilizing mood, and the more of it the body releases, the better it will be able to stave off symptoms of depression.
Sage Oil Benefits
The most-used types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay.
Tradition suggests that smudging can literally lift one’s spirits to banish negativity. Some research supports this.
Ridding the body, objects, and spaces of bad energy can help welcome in newer, fresher, and more positive energies. In a way, this could have an energising effect and help with fatigue.
