Lately, if you’ve come in for a chiropractic adjustment and/or functional rehabilitation with Dr. Garnecki, you may have had the benefit of experiencing therapeutic-grade essential oils to ease tension, reduce pain, or prolong the benefits of an adjustment.
Each month, we’ll share with you the benefits of different therapeutic-grade essential oils that haven’t been diluted with grain alcohol or other fillers in the process. Learn how to use inexpensive and preventative essential oils to keep you and your family healthy and well throughout the year.
These oils from the citrus family are extracted from the potent and aromatic rind of the fruits–often discarded and unused when eaten, yet, it is the rind that has the most beneficial properties for health and wellness.
Grapefruit: Grapefruit complements any healthy diet plan, and its uplifting, refreshing essential oil can help take your weight-management efforts to the next level! The scent of grapefruit may help create feelings of satiety and boost metabolism, while topical application may help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Lemon: Are you afraid of the toll that toxic household cleaners could take on you and your family? Clean your home’s surfaces with lemon essential oil, one of the most powerful cleaning agents nature has to offer! Lemon essential oil also leaves a pleasant scent that may help alleviate occasional feelings of sadness and improve cognition. It’s safe for use on infants and children to help boost the immune system at the first sign of cough or sniffle.
Orange: Looking for a natural way to freshen dull, tired skin? Orange oil makes an uplifting, complexion-brightening addition to any skin-care regimen, while its bright, citrus scent can aid relaxation and help lift feelings of unhappiness. Orange is a natural “tranquilizer” and a few drops on the pillow can often help even the most energetic fall asleep peacefully.
Tangerine: Do you occasionally struggle with digestive problems? Tangerine oil has traditionally been used to facilitate digestive health. This d-limonene-rich oil is also helpful, like other citrus oils, in creating an environment of wellness, relaxation, and joy.
