How essential Oils brings heritage to modern-day living
The world is taking brave new steps towards a sustainable future. In other words, nature is taking over. Some might say that the essence of today’s modern-day living finds its heritage in essential oils. In our contemporary living rooms decorated in elegant themes and fancy furniture, essential oils are the traditions that bring us closer to our roots and to ourselves.
As we know, the first records of essential oils come from Persia, Greece, Egypt, Rome, and of course, India. While we and the Egyptians, Greeks, and Chinese used these oils for ritual and healing purposes, aromatherapy using these magical potions was first used in Cleopatra’s land, Egypt.
Eoils brings a slice of royalty with them in today’s modern-day living:
In India, essential oils have played a special role. In the kitchens of royal households was the secret weapon of the healers of that time - pure essential oils. Ayurveda has a 3000-year-old history that would tell you about the goodness of eoils in healing.
According to Ayurveda, essential oils have the power to balance our emotional states and ultimately lead to our overall well-being. Rose, for instance, has been a favorite ingredient of the royal kitchen for ages. Earlier, people used to take aromatic rose baths to feel rejuvenated. Not to forget it was Queen Cleopatra’s favorite. Rose has also been a forever favorite amongst aromatherapists. The oil stimulates the release of the chemical Dopamine. The chemical that can lower depression levels. Rose oil has antibacterial properties. When inhaled, it regenerates the skin and rejuvenates tired muscles. Essential oils like Rose bridge the gap between traditional and modern and give us a path for a better lifestyle. Rose gardens were more than a scenic view, they were royal secrets. This is also true for oils like Sandalwood. What we at Wikka do is take that traditional wisdom and fuse it with modern techniques and ways for better skin health and overall give a sense of healing all around.
Where should you start as a beginner:
The quest for finding the perfect essential oil is never-ending. It is especially overwhelming for beginners. So if you are new at this, there are a few tricks that will help you understand aromatherapy better and use it well to liven up your spaces.
1. Essential Oils need carrier oils - Essential oils are heavy. Diffusing or applying them directly are never the best options. Always use a carrier oil.
2. Buy only pure essential oils - As I said, Rose has been a part of our traditions but it is difficult to get pure extracts today simply because it is expensive and you can get all kinds of adulterated versions. Choose only trusted brands for your essential oil needs. People who are dealing exclusively in essential oils and natural products will give you the purest concoctions. At Wikka, we are constantly improving the beauty game by bringing natural products under the spotlight. Essential Oils are the products on which we built our legacy.
3. Don’t start mixing right away - An experienced aromatherapist can help you mix the best blends for your home and suit your style. However, it is difficult to do it on your own. Always consult before mixing essential oils.
