Evergreen Essential Oils
One of the highlights of Thanksgiving weekend in New York City is the overnight appearance of Christmas trees lining the streets, generously bestowing their exhilarating fragrance to every person who passes down their aisle. Although evergreens evoke a spirit of good will and togetherness for their nostalgic association with Christmas and the excitement of the winter season, there is more to know about their alluring aroma and their positive effects on the mind, body and spirit. As we walk though the “forest” of trees, we enhance our immune systems and prevent the spread of germs. We gain “community immunity” as the trees imbue us with their antimicrobial, antiseptic and cleansing properties.
If you feel more alert and focused when you're breathing in the scent of evergreen, it's because the uplifting aroma lifts “brain fog” by opening up the sinus cavity and increasing oxygen to the brain, giving a sense of well-being from increased mental clarity. It's no wonder that the respiratory tract is, in fact, the upside down mirror image of the shape of a tree! An effective way to obtain these respiratory benefits at home is to diffuse conifer and evergreen essential oils into the air. You will have peace of mind when friends and family who might be harboring colds enter your living space...and you'll be making your home smell holiday-ready without the use of synthetic scents.
As the winter season progresses and we tend to feel more tired and stressed from all the busy-ness, evergreen scents can also help by grounding and calming the emotions, providing energy and motivation to pull us through the holidays. Here are some new products that bring the evergreen forest to you with Siberian Fir and Canadian Spruce essential oils. You can add them to your self-care routine or give them as a gift to someone who appreciates the beauty and healing properties of nature.
