What Are Herb-Infused Oils & How Do They Support Us?
Whole plant herb-infused oils are a natural and effective way to support the body. Our herb-infused oils are made by solar infusing (yes, harnessing the energy of the sun!) wild harvested and/or organic whole plant parts, such as leaves, flowers, and roots, in organic carrier oils such as olive, avocado, or jojoba. This process extracts the plant's medicinal properties and transfers them to the oil, creating a powerful herbal remedy. Herb-infused oils offer a gentle way to address a variety of health concerns, and can be used alone or in combination with other remedies for optimal health and wellness.
When you engage in the act of body oiling, you are receiving the physical benefits of touch & massage while also benefiting from the medicinal actions of the plants.
Here are some examples of how herb-infused oils can support you:
Skin health: Herbal infused oils can be used topically to nourish and protect the skin. For example, yarrow-infused oil can help soothe and heal injured skin, and lavender-infused oil can be used to reduce inflammation due to rashes, bites, acne, burns, & more all while promoting healing.
Respiratory health: Certain herbal infused oils can be used to support the respiratory system. Eucalyptus-infused oil, for example, can be used in a steam inhalation to help clear the sinuses and support healthy breathing.
Musculoskeletal health: Herbal infused oils can be used to support healthy muscles and joints. Evergreen-infused oil, for example, can be used topically to reduce pain and inflammation, while comfrey-infused oil can be used to support healthy bone and tissue growth.
Immune & lymphatic health: The immune system is responsible for defending the body against foreign invaders like viruses, bacteria, and parasites. The lymphatic system, on the other hand, plays a crucial role in circulating and filtering lymph, a fluid that carries immune cells and other waste products. Herbal infused oils contain bioactive compounds that can help boost the immune system and support lymphatic function. Massaging herbal oil into the skin helps promote circulation of lymphatic fluid and as a result, supports the health of the immune system. Calendula-infused oil can be used topically to support the lymphatic system, reduce swelling, and promote healing.
Overall, whole plant herbal infused oils can be a natural and effective way to support the body in a variety of ways. By incorporating these oils into a daily wellness routine, individuals can help support optimal immune function and overall health.
