One of the properties of the essential oils is their ability to assist detoxification of the body. They assist the body’s natural eliminatory response by stimulating the systems such as lymphatic and circulation. These essential oils are sometimes called detoxifiers and used in the treatment of inflammatory conditions. They are juniper berry, carrot seed, lemon, and sweet fennel.

Many essential oils help in elimination of excess waste products and make the job of lymphatic system easier. They are carrot seed, cypress, grapefruit, fennel, geranium, juniper berry, lemon, mandarin, and rosemary.

25% of the body waste products are eliminated via the skin. If organs of elimination such as the kidneys, lungs, and bowels are not functioning efficiently, the skin may react and look congested and irritated.

The following essential oils are known as lymphatic stimulants: grapefruit, sweet orange, peppermint, rosemary, and carrot seed. They can assist the skin to clarify.

When our body has high levels of toxins, we may feel congested, bloated and experience nausea.

Sometimes, all it takes to settle your nausea is a few deep, steadying breaths. Try warm, spicy Black Pepper essential oil with herbal, anise-like Sweet Basil essential oil. Inhale from the bottle or add a few drops to a diffuser.

If your children (5-year-old and older) feel uncomfortable in their stomach you may try this mix for a massage: a spoon of jojoba and 2drops sweet orange essential oil and 1drop Roman chamomile essential oil. Massage their bellies and lower backs.

Castor oil contains over 90% ricinoleic acid, which has impressive inflammation-calming effects, and readily absorbs into the skin. Castor oils helps loosen things up so the body’s natural detox process can flush toxins out. It’s often used for massage as a carrier.

As you can see a simple massage with a mix of pure essential oils diluted in a carrier oil such as jojoba or castor can assist a detoxification of your body.
