Where Is the Best Place on the Body to Apply Essential Oils?
There is no single perfect place on the body to apply essential oils.
- If it’s a localized issue like stomachache or sore muscles, then apply the essential oils directly to the part of the body where the issue is occurring.
- However, if it’s a more generalized issue like lack of focus, trouble sleeping, or anxiety, then apply essential oils at your pulse points: wrists, temples, behind the ears, neck, chest, or inner elbow.
- Pulse points are the parts of the body where major arteries run closest to the skin.
- Applying essential oils at pulse points gets the essential oils into the bloodstream the fastest, and you start feeling the benefits of the essential oils sooner.

BERGAMOT ESSENTIAL OILS
What is Bergamot Good for?
Bergamot is particularly good for relieving stress and anxiety, both due to its aroma and the qualities that the oil has. It can be used in massages and rubbed into the temples to relieve headaches; some people choose to put a few drops in their tea to enjoy the relaxing effects. Bergamot oil is also good for lowering depression and bringing an uplifting aura to the air, which is why it is so popular in diffusers.
Improves Blood Circulation
The components of bergamot oil, like alpha-pinene and limonene, are antidepressant and stimulating in nature. By improving the circulation of the blood, they create a feeling of freshness, joy, and energy in cases of sadness and depression. They also stimulate hormonal secretions, thereby helping to maintain proper metabolic rates. This stimulating effect also increases the secretion of digestive juices, bile, and insulin. This aids in digestion, proper absorption of nutrients, assimilation, and decomposition of sugar and the resultant lowering of blood sugar. The hormonal impact of this essential oil is part of the reason that it is so powerful on these neurological and mental conditions
Bergamot essential oil reduces the feeling of pain in the body. It stimulates the secretion of certain hormones which lessen the sensitivity of nerves to pain. Therefore, it is very helpful in case of headaches, sprains, muscle aches or any other symptoms/ailments which require a heavy dosage of analgesic pills. This means that you can avoid the dangerous side effects of many over-the-counter pain medicines, which often have adverse side effects and can damage your liver and kidneys, as well as cause blood thinning and insomnia.
