I previously posted this in one of my facebook educational groups.
I liked it so much, I wanted to share here:
Scientific studies have shown that trees like pine, fir, cedar and cypress contain phytoncides such as alpha-pinene and beta-pinene (which make up the essential oils of many trees) and these were found to decrease levels of the cortisol stress hormone.
With that in mind, let me share what are my favorite 5 tree oils and why 🌲 🌳 🌲
🌲 Cypress: This oil is not only wonderful for releasing stored emotions, but it helps ease feelings of loss and creates a sense of security. I use in the diffuser because it has helped me to heal emotional trauma in the past. Currently it calms me emotionally, relieves anger and just helps life flow better.
🌲 Cedarwood: This oil’s powerful scent creates a relaxing, calming and comforting environment by stimulating the limbic region of the brain. It is my “Go To” each night for deep restful sleep 😴 I use sometimes in the diffuser with lavender and other times apply by itself neat to my wrists. I also use in my eyelash serum. If you want to do some light reading, google “Cedarwood and pineal gland” 😉
🌲 Northern Lights Black Spruce: This oil is grounding yet uplifting at the same time. I use this in the diffuser at night to relax and unwind. There’s is something very comforting about NLBS and orange for me.
🌲 Sacred Frankincense: This oil promotes confidence and purpose as the feelings of negativity disappear and stimulates the body’s immune system. I use Sacred Frank when I’m studying and meditating to keep my mental focus and allow for a deeper connection.
🌲 Sacred Sandalwood: The deep “woody” Sacred Sandalwood is intoxicating to me. I love the aroma and because of all it’s Oxygenated Sesquiterpenes, it will linger on the skin ALL day. I put a drop behind my ears when I feel I need a little extra clarity. I notice when I turn my head throughout the day, I get light whiffs which help me maintain my focus and vision.
So these are my Favorite 5! Are any of these in your list of faves?
