Essential oils for monsoon
Essential oils are pure in nature and it makes a very potent formula to work on your skin, hair or even health. Here are some of my favourite essential oils for the monsoon. And listed are 3 ways to use them in the most effective ways.
Eucalyptus oil also known as nilgiri tel is an oil that is packed with loads of healing properties for skin, hair and your health.
For health : Eucalyptus oil is extremely beneficial in alleviating conditions like colds, cough and congestion. Eucalyptus oil helps to loosen the congestion and provide immediate relief. Add a few drops of peppermint & eucalyptus essential oils to boiling water and inhale as a steam to get rid of a cough and cold.
For hair : It is common for the hair to not dry naturally in the rainy season and give rise to an itchy scalp. Mix two drops of Eucalyptus essential oil with 1 tbsp of pure coconut oil and apply on scalp. Let it stay for an hour before you wash your hair with warm water.
For skin : Aching muscles? Make your own sore scrub by mixing 3 tbsp of pure coconut oil with 1 heaped spoon of brown sugar and 5 drops each of lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils. Use as a scrub on the sore parts and wash off with warm water.
Teatree oil is one of the essential oils that can be applied topically as it gives wonderful results!
For health : Take a pail of hot water (as hot as you can) and add to it a fistful of sea salt and 9-10 drop of tea tree essential oil and soak your feet in it. This will help to flush out the toxins and provide relaxation to your feet.
For hair : Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with pure olive oil and massage on your scalp. Let it stay for an hour before you wash your hair with warm water. This will reduce the intensity of dandruff that normally occurs in the rainy season.
For skin : Oily skin and acne is a part and parcel of monsoon. Dab a drop or two of this essential oil on a cotton swab dipped in warm water and use it to cleanse your skin. If you have excess acne, mix it with your regular facewash and use.
Lemon Grass Oil
Lemongrass oil is known for its cleansing properties and it is one of the oils that you really should be stocking on in monsoon.
