Essential Oils: Lavender, Rose, Jasmine, and Lemongrass

The first thing you need to know about essential oils is that they do not contain fatty acids. Therefore, they are not really oils. Essential oils, which are natural aromatic compounds extracted from some parts of plants and trees, have been enhancing lives of people for thousands of years. People from different centuries apply essential oils for physical and emotional wellness. Some people use essential oils for cosmetic purposes, others for dietary. Some religious folks even use essential oils to communicate to the Gods.

As of the time being, experts have identified more than 3,000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds. The nature of essential oils differs from plant to plant. Below are some of most well-known essential oils used in the perfume industry:

Lavender oil

Referred to as spikenard (or simply nard) more than 2 millennia ago, lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) is the most used essential oil in the world today. Aside from perfume-making, Ancient Egyptians used the said essential oil in mummifying the dead. On the other hand, the lavender oil was used for bathing, cooking, and scenting the air in Ancient Rome. Lavender is perfect in reducing emotional stress, healing some burns and open wounds, inducing sleep, restoring skin complexion, and getting rid of headaches. Lavender is also a well-known bug repellent.

Rose Oil

Studies show that the Rose Oil has some therapeutic compounds that promotes healing. Some of those are Citronellol (a good mosquito repellent but only at short distances), Citral (used in the synthesis of Vitamin A), Carvone (aids in the relaxation of the digestive system), Eugenol (a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant), and more.

Jasmine Oil

If you want to bust a bad mood, overcome anxiety and stress, and balance your hormones, Jasmine Oil is for you. The said essential oil is perfect for massage therapy (especially in the circulation and respiration functions of the body) and in promoting feelings of strength, warmth, and vitality.

Lemongrass Oil

Also called Cymbopogon, Lemongrass Oil is a great source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and C. Aside from those vitamins, Lemongrass Oil is also a rich source of minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, manganese, and many more. This is the reason why lemongrass is used in cooking, especially in Asian cuisine.
