How floral oils can boost your wellbeing

Discover the benefits of the oils extracted from these six flowering plants.

Floral scents have multiple benefits for our bodies and minds.

Floral oils are generally calming, stress-relieving and sleep-promoting, helping us to feel well and rested. They often have pain-relieving properties, being used to calm muscle pain and relieve hormonal pain and cramping.

Floral oils are also incredibly popular in skincare thanks to their gentle cleansing and soothing abilities. These six oils all have multiple benefits for your mental health, physical wellness, and home hygiene.

Clary sage oil

Often known as the ‘women’s oil’, clary sage is known to reduce anxiety and pain surrounding birth. It is commonly used to ease menstrual cramps and relax the body in times of distress.

The oil’s soothing properties can relieve muscle pain and soreness and increase circulation, whilst its antibacterial properties make it a wonderful skin cleanser.

Clary sage is also able to decrease blood pressure, protecting internal health.

Geranium oil

A highly anti-inflammatory oil, geranium soothes swollen muscles and joints and reduces sensations of pain, as well as relieving stress and anxiety.

Geranium is also known as a natural deodorant, able to absorb through skin and circulate to be released through perspiration and mask unpleasant body odour.

In addition, geranium can help to detoxify the body by promoting urination and reducing water retention.

Hyssop oil

Hyssop is a wonderful natural remedy for coughs and colds.

An antispasmodic oil, it is said to prevent muscle spasms in the chest, thereby inhibiting coughing fits, whilst its decongestant abilities allow it to loosen phlegm in the respiratory tract and open up airways.

It can also attack the cause of illnesses, fighting infections and killing bacteria. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it a great treatment for sore muscles, as well as a soothing skin tonic.

Lavender oil is also an antioxidant, preventing the oxidising damage caused by free radicals.
