I Thought that Was a Tree!

Posted by Mary Olinger on

Sometimes when it comes to essential oils, the focus can be on floral and citrus varieties. In the spring, this is especially true as we shift our attention to the beautiful blossoms and green plants. However, there are several oils that are extracted from trees. Here are some of the benefits of some of the most common tree essential oils.

 Spruce Oil

If you haven’t yet tried spruce oil, you’ve been missing out. It can be used in household cleaners as it is antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral. If you have respiratory problems, diffuse it to help open up your airways. Mixed with a pure carrier oil, it can be applied to wounds to aid in healing. It can also be used as a rub to help relieve muscle aches and pains.

Sandalwood Oil

Sandalwood oil is therapeutic in nature and can be diffused to help bring about clarity and calmness. Combined with a carrier oil and rubbed on the skin, sandalwood can help bring about a calm feeling without the drowsiness of lavender. Used as an astringent, it can help soothe skin. It can be used in aftershave products or as a facial toner.

Myrrh Oil

Myrrh has been around for centuries and is just now getting some of the credit it deserves. Many scientific studies have been done to ascertain the properties of this essential oil. Just a few of the properties science has confirmed include its antiseptic, anesthetic, antiparasitic, antioxidant and wound healing effects. It is often used in skin care products and can be diffused to provide a calming aroma. Adding a few drops to shampoo can provide extra moisture.

Balsam Fir Oil

If you want a distinctly earthy or woodsy aroma, balsam fir essential oil is the perfect choice. It has a unique effect in that it is both uplifting and soothing. Diluting and applying it to the joints and muscles can offer some relief after a good workout or intense day at work. When it is diffused, or diluted and applied topically to the chest, it can offer support for the respiratory system. Many use it because it can help balance out emotions.

Birch Oil

Birch essential oil is commonly used in massage therapy for use on muscles and joints. It can help support circulatory and respiratory health and can be helpful to reduce oily skin. The aroma helps promote feelings of vitality, warmth, and strength. If you have a smelly gym bag, you can add a couple drops of birch oil to a cotton ball for relief.

Cedarwood Oil

Diffuse cedarwood essential oil at the end of a difficult, long day to help you relax and balance out your emotions. Soothe and smooth your skin by adding a few drops of cedarwood to skin care and lotion products or put a few drops in our shampoo or conditioner to help your hair look shinier.

Copaiba Oil

Copaiba oil can be used in aromatherapy as it tends to lighten and improve moods. It has a pleasant, yet rich aroma that can be calming to the emotions. It can be used as a topical analgesic to help reduce pain as well as loosen the muscles. Some say it helps relieve headaches and migraines. Diffuse it to help relieve respiratory problems.

Cypress Oil

Fill the air with fresh, invigorating scents using cypress in a diffuser. Used topically in lotions and oils it can have a cleansing and calming effect. Diffuse it at night while you are asleep to help with restlessness, diffuse it in the daytime to relieve anxiety. It also works well as a vapor rub if it is diluted with a carrier oil and applied to the chest.

Juniper Oil

Juniper essential oil has long been used topically as a remedy for skin problems like acne. The carrier oil works to moisturize and juniper oil fights fungus and treats blemishes. Put a few drops in a bath with Epsom salt and alleviate muscle pain and inflammation of the joints.  Juniper oil can also help you relax and relieve tension. You can diffuse it before bedtime or mix it with a carrier oil and massage it into your feet, neck, and chest.
