Peppermint oil is often used to alleviate headaches, nausea, gas, indigestion, stomach aches, and anxiety. It’s able to soothe discomfort with irritated bowel syndrome (IBS), and encapsulated peppermint oil contains something called menthol which stops involuntary contractions by interfering with the movement of electrolytes across cell membranes.
Tea Tree Oil
Another oil with antimicrobial properties, tea tree oil (melaleuca oil) is produced from “tea” or “paperbark” trees. In Australia, Bundjalung aborigines crushed up leaves from this tree and inhaled it in order to relieve coughs and used it to help heal wounds.
Blue Chamomile Oil
Extracted from German chamomile, blue chamomile oil is a vibrant blue color due to the steam extraction process that’s used. When stored, however, it fades to a dark yellow color. This oil is great for it’s anti-inflammatory effects. According to some studies, it prevents a chemical process that causes inflammation to occur and inhibits the effects of helicobacter pylori, a stomach ulcer-provoking bacteria.
This oil is derived from jojoba shrubs, a woody desert plant found in Arizona, California, and northwestern Mexico. Native Americans used to put this type of oil on wounds to help them heal quicker. Although jojoba oil is not an essential oil, it still offers a lot of benefits, especially to the skin. Researchers have found that this oil can help with the closure of wounds at a cellular level and provides many other benefits to the skin.
