Using Seventh Sojourn Essential Oils in Aromatherapy and Skincare
I’ve known Owners Melissa and Bryan Penney for over 20 years - There’s ALWAYS a method to their madness and that madness has created products that I will use for the rest of my life. So, as I researched the essential oils they use in depth, I started to realize how deliberate they have been with each product’s “recipes.”
If you look at these products from just a skincare perspective, they are really incredible. But it’s downright staggering to think of all the different complications and ailments that can be drastically improved with using essential oils in aromatherapy. As our society continually becomes more aware of what we put on and inside our bodies, all natural, organic essential oils continue to boom in popularity. The result has been some fascinating evidence of their holistic healing capabilities.
Without further adieu, let’s take a look at these essential oils and find out what makes them so special!
Lavender Essential Oil
Aromatherapy: The most well-known for aromatherapy, Lavender provides the best relaxation of all essential oils. Rub a little Lavender on your pillow at night and drastically improve your chances of getting a good night sleep!
Skincare: Lavender essential oil is known to be an antiseptic that is used to heal skin faster and prevent further infection. Lavender essential oil products can also be helpful in reducing redness, blotchy patches and acne scarring.
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Aromatherapy: Known for it’s calming nature, Tea Tree essential oil is said to increase your ability to fight off infections by diminishing stress, a leading cause of immune system issues.
Skincare: Tea Tree essential oil is also known as an antibacterial, commonly used to treat acne, athlete’s foot, lice, nail fungus, and insect bites.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Aromatherapy: Known as “Mint Condition” by Seventh Sojourn, peppermint essential oil is best described as “refreshing.” Its potent nature is said to be helpful with nausea and congestion. Some also use it for digestive system health.
Peppermint is also very popular for its magical relief of muscle tension. Ever wonder what makes Spicy Ice and SuperMint so effective with sore muscles and headaches? Peppermint is likely the short answer.
Skincare: If you’re feeling consistently dry, try Peppermint essential oil products to improve oil secretion. Peppermint essential oil can also be used to “cool” sunburn areas.
Patchouli Essential Oil
Aromatherapy: Although I field an occasional joke about hippies and Patchouli, it doesn’t hinder me from using this essential oil one bit. Patchouli essential oil is said to provide antidepressant, aphrodisiac, diuretic, febrifuge (fever reducing), sedative and tonic (vigor, well-being) qualities.
Skincare: Primarily used as an antifungal, Patchouli essential oil can also be used as an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, deodorant, fungicide, cicatrisant (skin healing), or cytophylactic (skin cell regeneration).
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Aromatherapy: Eucalyptus essential oil is regularly used to treat congestion from the common cold or blockage. Another important function of this oil is to reduce fever and inflammation of sore muscles and joints. Lastly, some folks have reported a great reduction of blood sugar, in turn increasing its popularity with those who suffer from diabetes.
Skin: Another great option for acne treatment, you may also find great relief to wounds, burns, cold sores and ulcers.
Sandalwood Essential Oil
Aromatherapy: Likely due to its rustic nature, Sandalwood essential oil is often described as “soothing” to both the skin and the mind. There is little by way of proven facts to the specific benefits it provides in aromatherapy, but some believe that Sandalwood is effective in treating both physical and mental disorders, including anxiety, bronchitis, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, gallbladder problems, high blood pressure, indigestion, insomnia, liver problems, low libido, sore throat, and urinary tract infections.
Skincare: Sandalwood essential oil is relied upon for improving complexion and reducing redness and skin imperfections.
Whether you are looking to reduce skin imperfections, reduce discomfort related to injuries, or maybe to treat mental health related issues, Seventh Sojourn’s essential oil products just might be the important piece missing in your personal care efforts. Using any of our essential oil products can often provide you with relief in multiple aspects of personal health, providing many “bonus benefits” along the way.
