Odacité’s love for essential oils goes deep. Essential oils are undoubtedly sensual, distilling alchemy, mysticism, wellness into plant-based healing. Ancient Ayurvedic healers have been using essential oils, otherwise known as plant essences, to heal the body, mind, and spirit for centuries. These highly concentrated plant extracts are highly aromatic and provide a high-vibe experience across several senses.
Senses, after all, are how we experience the world. Our enjoyment of life is correlated with staying in touch with our senses. What we smell triggers hormonal reactions, so each scent we smell triggers an emotion or memory. This is why a whiff of your high-school boyfriend’s cologne can take you back many years. Or why a yoga studio filled with Ylang Ylang can feel immediately uplifting. In a time when we tend to overthink and be overstimulated, it can be glorious to stop and just breathe.
And make no mistake, essential oils have lasted the test of time for good reason. Perhaps the original beauty secret, essential oils have extraordinary skin-healing benefits and promote wellness. Chamomile soothes, juniper eradicates bad vibes, and vanilla is known to be an aphrodisiac— the list goes on! Below, we are highlighting a few of our favorite essential oils to help you achieve a holistic glow.
