What is a warm essential oil?
An essential oil is called "warm" when it invigorates blood and lymphatic microcirculation, while providing a diffused warm feeling when applied. This type of oil is perfect for a warming rub after an outdoor activity or during a cold spell. Here are four essential oils to warm you up:
- Balsam Fir
Nothing beats the gentle warmth of Balsam Fir essential oil to relieve sore muscles after any winter sport. An emblematic coniferous tree of Québec forests, balsam fir is also the most popular Christmas tree. Its woody and slightly spicy fragrance brings instant well-being.
Peace and relaxation have a best friend: Cedar essential oil. Ancient texts refer to the spiritual attributes of cedar essential oil, and its soft and subtly woody aroma promotes blissful quiescence, making it the ideal essential oil for meditation.
Cinnamon essential oil has been used since the 5th century BC. Its sweet, warm aroma is most comforting. As cinnamon is often used in cooking, its fragrance sometimes bring us back to our childhood's favourite dishes.
Orange essential oil is a true spirit booster guaranteed to brighten up any gray and cold day! Plus, its soothing action will help you fall asleep. And its sweet, fruity bouquet is nothing short of irresistible!
