Perhaps one of the most commonly used oils to clean and detox is Lemon.

It awakens the sense and clarifies the mind. Peppermint also has cooling properties that help relax and soothe muscle tension and pain.

This oil is a definite must-have when it comes to enhancing health and wellness.
The use of Ginger is so versatile and widespread; people should buy stock in it! This fantastic oil helps support healthy digestion and even helps with symptoms of nausea or upset stomach. So next time you have an upset stomach, or some mild nausea put a couple drops of ginger essential oil in your favorite drink!
Spikenard may be a little less well known than its fellow oils, lemon, peppermint, and ginger, but don’t let its “under the radar” presence fool you into thinking its health benefits are any less impactful. This oil should not be overlooked. Some of its many benefits are that it stimulates the immune system and digestive system by relaxing both body and mind. It can also promote hair growth and acts as an antioxidant to help fight against free radicals. Spikenard has also been used since biblical times, as a form of medicine for both inside and outside of the body. It’s been used to help treat skin and fight against infections and funguses, especially on the feet and toenails. This is one powerful oil!
Frankincense, Myrrh, Tea Tree
Similarly to Spikenard, Frankincense, Myrrh, and Tea Tree oil have been used for ages to boost immunity, support hormone health, promote healthy skin and nails, and also assist the body in fighting against infections and funguses. Tea Tree also packs a mean punch in the fight against the dreaded dandruff battle. Just add several drops of tea tree oil in your favorite shampoo and gently massage into roots and voila! No more flaky hair!
Star Anise oil promotes relaxation and the release of tension within the body. It also helps stimulate blood circulation and digestion. Helping to support a more natural functioning body. As if we need more than that, star anise is also commonly used as a cleansing agent, both on the body and other surfaces as well. So it’s great to use to help clean cuts, scrapes or scratches. Make sure to keep a bottle of this magic oil in your first-aid kit!
Rich in antioxidants, Oregano and Thyme provide the body with numerous health benefits to support a robust immune system. These two oils may not be obvious choices for massage oils, but they actually can provide a great deal of support to your body when applied topically. With their calming, refreshing, and mentally stimulating properties, your body enters into a more relaxed state, allowing it to function in a more natural and stress-free way.
