Healing power of essential oils (infographic)

Dec. 23, 2015

Have you ever noticed how the scent of a freshly cut lemon can make you feel instantly refreshed and uplifted? That's the power of essential oils: potent plant extracts that can help enhance your emotional well-being, improve your mental state and treat common health conditions.

Victoria Risovanny, licensed acupuncturist at Sharp Coronado Hospital's Sewall Healthy Living Center, practices Aroma Acupoint Therapy, where she applies essential oils to acupuncture points to treat a wide range of physical and emotional ailments.

"By alleviating pain, reducing nausea, promoting relaxation and improving sleep, essential oils can help a person's overall health as well as a patient's recovery," says Risovanny.

You can use essential oils at home in a diffuser, in the bath or directly on the skin when mixed with carrier oils such as sweet almond, coconut or olive oil. To help you get started, we outline 9 of the most common essential oils.
