Essential Oils for Winter Health

Jessica Graves

As we’ve recently discussed, winter can be a hard time for your health and your heart. It’s easy to start feeling down when your nose drips constantly, your throat itches in a place you can’t reach, and your toes exist in a perpetual state of cold. Luckily for you we’ve compiled a list of a few of our favorite essential oils to combat the maladies of this seemingly never-ending winter.

What we think makes a good essential oil for the winter, is an oil that can aid in congestion and offer protection against nasty phlegm loving bacteria, as well as boosting the immune system and circulation to help you melt your frozen extremities. But equally important is an essential oil’s ability to aid the brain when dealing with the often inevitable winter blues.  To use any of these essentials add a few drops to your diffuser, take a few whiffs with your head distanced several inches from the bottle, or dilute your essentials in a liquid oil of your choosing by mixing 2 drops of essential oils per teaspoon of carrier oil. Do not put undiluted essential oils on your skin.

Clove Essential Oil (Syzygium aromaticum) has a spicy smell, though it is cooling on the throat. Clove buds were traditionally chewed to soothe the pain of a sore throat while offering anti-inflammatory properties. It has the most antioxidants of any other essential oil and is rich in vitamins and minerals. This is a very immune healthy oil! It even boosts circulation. Some other great things about clove oil is that it aids brain function and helps you out with mental fatigue and depression. It can even help induce sleep in insomniacs. All that and it smells so dang good!

Ginger Essential Oil (Zingiber officinale) is an energizing oil characterized by its spicy and sweet aroma. Most reknown for its relief of stomach aches, ginger oil also boosts the circulation, and provides a warming effect. It is commonly used to help arthritis for this reason. Ginger is stimulating and helps with depression. 

Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia) is freshly floral, reminiscent of a time when things were blooming rather than draped in snow. Known most for its relaxing properties, lavender is an adaptogen, helping the body cope and adapt to stress and change. Lavender oil also helps to balance the left and right sides of your brain. This oil is also healing and soothing on the skin, good for that winter-induced dryness.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Eucalyptus globulus) is a very distinctive smelling oil from a plant that is native to Australia. It is reknown for its decongestant properties, providing a cooling sensation comparable to menthol. However, it’s abilities go beyond that as Eucalyptus oil can be used to stimulate and rejuvenate, helping you to combat fatigue. Eucalyptus increases blood flow and because of this, more blood flows to your brain to wake you up. Fortunately, this increase in blood flow also applies to your frozen extremities!

Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon) is an immune booster! High in vitamins, especially vitamin C, lemon can help you fight off and prevent diseases that spread during the cold months. You can inhale lemon oil to clean the sinuses, or use the diluted oil to naturally increases circulation. Lemon oil calms and rejuvenates, helping with fatigue and increasing your concentration to help you stay focused on those icy roads.

Where is Peppermint Essential Oil on this list, you ask? Right over here silly-see Pep Up with Peppermint

Essential Oils for a Flawless Face

Jessica Graves

Essential Oils have been used throughout history for a wide variety of health concerns. They were man's first form of medicine and are gaining popularity and recognition once again as people search for organic, natural alternatives to the harsh chemicals we are faced with everyday.

There are some wonderful essential oils out there for your skincare concerns. Time and time again stubborn blemishes and acne are defeated by oils with natural antiseptic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Here are some of the top essential oils to help erase those spots!

  • Tea Tree- has disinfecting and soothing properties. It is anti-microbial and kills bacteria known to cause pimples and clog pores. Unlike other acne treatments, it will not strip your skin of its natural oils.
  • Lavender-  is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It has a balancing and regenerative effect on the skin, helps minimize the appearance of acne scars, and can be used on all skin types.
  • Rosemary- stimulates cell renewal, clears blemishes, and helps dull dry skin by fighting bacteria and regulating oil secretions.
  • Lemon- has antiseptic like properties, can kill several strains of bacteria within hours, and improves circulation on the surface of the skin.

Luckily, Una has taken the spot fighting power of these and other essential oils to create a new product sure to beat the most stubborn of blemishes! Blemish Buster-acne reducing serum will be released next week! This amazing blemish roll-on includes: 

  • Yarrow essential oil for inflammation and deep cleansing without clogging pores
  • Juniper essential oil for its powerful astringent properties and  popularity as a troubled skin companion
  • Witch hazel essential oil for its ability to gently clean deep within the pores and condition aggravated skin
  • Eucalyptus essential oil due to its toxicity to a wide range of active bacteria including the primary bacteria in acne infections
  • Calendula  extract serves as our universal skin healer
  • Tea Tree, Lavender, Rosemary, and Lemon essential oils for their previously mentioned pimple eliminating popularity 

You don't want to miss out on the release of our amazing Blemish Buster! The Una ladies have a mighty Research and Development stage for each new product. If it passes with flying colors they test on themselves as one last step to ensure perfection. Thank goodness I had the opportunity to try out this product because my clogged, red, acne infested chin was getting out of control! Not to mention, the red marks and scars from a year long battle with recurring pimples has gotten the best of me. Well, this is the first time in almost 12 months that new zits are not flaring! The bright red glow is now a barely there pink, and the pores are definitely breathing again. No more white heads. I deem this a success! But then again,  our amazing customers know we wouldn't release anything that isn't absolutely lovely and nourishing for your skin!
