OrgHive Copywriter, Somrita, tried to find the answers and wrote this down. 

Are you into essential oils? Or have you wondered whether including it in your daily routine is necessary? If you feel that you have started hearing a lot about essential oils in the last few years, then that's not the case. Essential oils have existed since ancient times. It is worth noting that essential oils have existed across the globe for centuries for various uses: aromatherapy, personal care, healthcare practices, religious ceremonies, beauty treatments, food preparation, etc.  

Now coming to the burning question: do we need it today?  

Research indicates that essential oils have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-spasmodic properties.  

There's no clear-cut answer, so let's break it down.  

What are essential oils? 


Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the ground that has been distilled and prepared so that you can bring the power of nature into your house. Carefully tucked inside roots, seeds, flowers, bark, and the other insides of many plants, these plant extracts are highly potent chemical compounds.

Why should you use essential oils?  

Each essential oil has its own healing properties, and it is essential to read up on the essential oil you're interested in trying. Here are some of the benefits:  

  Oral hygiene: Yes, you read it right. If you want to fight that bad breath, this can be a very beneficial natural trick. Overall, it helps maintain oral health.  

  Towards Skin perfection: 
If you're seeking natural skincare solutions, looking into this can be worth it. But we suggest you dilute them in a carrier oil such as Argan oil for safe application. Lavender oil and rosehip seed oil are some of the popular choices.  

  Handle stress & anxiety:
Do you get pangs of anxiety? Well, breathing or rubbing some of these essential oils – lavender, chamomile, and rosewater – may help you keep calm 

 Happy Tummy:
Essential oils may also help you with digestion. Many people use ginger oil to relieve digestive issues



  Purify that air: Uplift the atmosphere! Remember the refreshingly soothing aroma in spas that instantly uplifts your mood. Well, that's because of essential oils — a powerful mood enhancer.  

 Sleep well:
Yeah, you can improve your sleep quality with lavender oil. Smell this oil before going to bed, and let it take care of your sleep.
