Spinal Application of essential oils is just one way you can use dōTERRA essential oils topically. When I started to really research essential oils after I joined dōTERRA, I got immediately interested in the ways to apply these oils for the most benefits. We know essential oils are useful for reducing the appearance of skin imperfections, soothing irritated skin, cleansing oily skin, calming wrinkles and fine lines, promoting a healthy complexion, reducing the appearance of blemishes, and more. But did you know that applying essential oils to your spine can be beneficial as well? I started using several different oils on my spine, and on others when I did an AromaTouch massage, and we all felt revived and refreshed afterwards. This feeling lingers and only gets stronger over time.
Spinal Application of Essential Oils as a Topical Application
The advantages of using essential oils on the spine are numerous and people all over the world are benefitting from this type of application. Because the spine acts like the freeway into the body, pure essential oils can deliver benefits to the parts of the body that need this natural support.
Recommended Essential Oils for Spinal Application Are:
- Roman Chamomile
You Can Also Use dōTERRA Blends Such As:
- AromaTouch blend
- OnGuard blend
- Deep Blue
The Benefits of Spinal Application With Essential Oils
Along the spine we have a higher concentration of neurological and arterial activity. This concentrated activity supports greater blood flow and absorption capabilities, which allow for greater distribution and heightened function of the essential oils. Gently massaging or using warmth when applying essential oils on the spine is a great way to take advantage of the sensitivity of the neurological structures and cellular functions of the body and can enhance the absorption of essential oils topically. It is known to support the immune system, relieves inflammation while it reduces body toxins from tension, and it can support in balancing the autonomic nervous system within the person. Applying essential oils on the spine is a positive way for both adults and children to benefit from many of our pure oils.
Topical Application Provides Aromatherapy Benefits
Certain essential oils have warming, energizing, or uplifting properties, while other oils have chemical components that make them calming, soothing, cooling, or renewing. When an essential oil is applied topically and absorbed into the skin, the user begins to experience the benefits that the chemical properties of each specific oil have to offer.
In addition to the benefits that essential oils hold for the skin and the body, applying essential oils topically allows the user to enjoy the aromatic benefits of each oil. After applying an oil topically, the aroma will linger on the skin, and the user can breathe in the aroma for up to a few hours. Even if you are using an essential oil for its topical benefits, you can also experience the relaxing, calming, uplifting, or invigorating aroma as the oil absorbs into your skin and you inhale it in.
“Hi, I have just been introduced to these pure essential oils and I did buy several, mostly because I am a chef and I wanted to use them in cooking. One of my health issues is frequent head tension. I will not take anything unnatural so I have learned to suffer through them. I read somewhere that Rosemary had been used for centuries for head tension and since that was one of the oils I had, I started rubbing it on my forehead and all along the back of my neck. It helped ease the tension almost immediately so I wanted to share this information on here. I have been following this blog for a while and I see that a lot of people will order oils specifically for their own issues at first, but then they realize each oil has so many uses. I love the testimonials about the Lemon oil, this oil has a thousand uses and everyone should have it in their home. Anyway, Head Tension = Rosemary. It’s helped me, maybe it can help you.”
“I have been practicing meditation for years and have always diffused Eucalyptus essential oil because I just love the scent of it. A friend of mine who is a consultant with this essential oil company told me I should try using Frankincense, she said it just puts you in a real calm place mentally. She also told me to try rubbing some of the oil along my upper spine. This oil is one that is being researched for it’s many helpful properties and spinal application is highly recommended. I did what she said and now I am hooked on this scent. And after I meditate I feel awake and open, like I am just waking up from a perfect nights sleep. It’s a wonderful feeling!”
