Several readers wanted to have a list of recommended essential oils for each season. As you can imagine, the choice was not easy! But we managed to make a small selection to make your task easier. We only noted the main reasons why each one is part of our selection for each season.... Read our selection and have fun!
Lemon: excellent for detox but be careful with the sun (including if you drink it) because it is photosensitizing.
Carrot: another essential oil very often used for detox but which is also very
Recommended in skincare.
Tarragon: a must-have in case of high fever and other seasonal allergies.
Ginger: helps improve mood and promote better concentration.
Lavender: to treat sunburn, have good time relaxation or prevent
insects of all kinds, it is amazing!
Chamomile: another flower that smells like summer. The essential oil brings back memories of sitting outside with family and friends on a wonderful meal fresh from the grill or a long summer walk in the park.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon is warming and invigorating. Inhaling cinnamon oil can be both grounding and energizing. Make sure to dilute cinnamon as it can create a burning sensation if you put it directly onto your skin.
Orange: this oil is sweet and light. Inhaling orange oil can be energizing and can boost your mood.
Peppermint: Peppermint is an oil that is wonderful year-round, but definitely belongs in a list of winter “essentials” too. It has so many uses, but you want to be sure to buy a high-quality oil for the best results.
Black Pepper: Black Pepper Essential Oil has one major advantage: it doesn't irritate your eyes or make you sneeze like ground peppercorns can, in addition to many other benefits.
Coriander Seed: an invigorating, stimulating oil. It is often noted for its use in aiding digestion and in assisting with aches, pains, and arthritis.
Although natural, essential oils must be used with great care due to their concentration of inactive ingredients. They are not without risk and are not suitable for everyone. Thus, pregnant and breastfeeding women, children, and people with a history of epilepsy or asthma must be particularly careful and always seek advice from a doctor or pharmacist before using essential oils. In all cases, it is essential to respect the contra-indications, the dosage, and the proportions in order to take advantage of the benefits of the oils in complete safety.
