As beautiful and magical this time of year is, it is hard to ignore that this is the iconic season of runny noses and congestion. In fact, respiratory issues and sicknesses are so common right now that you may have already stocked up with over the counter remediations to have on hand for preparation. Now, you could have all the top and leading brands on the commercial market in your cabinets. However, if you did not invest in Mastic Essential oil as part of your decongestant combating efforts, then you are cutting yourself very short when it comes to being coaxed back to prime health.
Mastic, also known as Pistacia Lentiscus, is a dioecious evergreen shrub/small tree that is cultivated to produce Mastic Essential oil. This particular essential oil is referred to as a "diamond in the rough" because the Mastic tree oozes diamond-like droplets from its trunk, which hardens and falls to the ground. Those said drops offer a fresh yet intense aroma (a mixture of pine and licorice) and used widely in perfume blends, homemade dental products, and skincare products. But in a therapeutic sense, this essential oil is pedestaled.
For those who are familiar with Mastic Essential oil, then you may have seen or heard about how wonderful this solution is. This all-natural resource holds strong anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent, circulatory, and even repellent features that all collectively improve one's quality of life. And though all aspects are divine in their own way, the decongestant properties that stem from this essential oil are second to none, and worth highlighting all on its own.
Why is Mastic Essential oil such a key resource for decongestant? The underlying reason is due to its potent vasoconstriction, elevated levels of monoterpenes, and anti-oxidant features. Since Mother Nature packed Mastic Essential oil with these elements, it is a well-known venous and lymphatic decongestant. The oil can remediate even the most substantial varicose veins and can even be massaged into the skin to help with ecchymosis, heavy and bruised feet. Furthermore, because of the profound number of monoterpenes it contains, Mastic Essential oil is a perfect anti-inflammatory, leveraged as a decongestant to both protect and decongest the respiratory tract in those who use it.
Now, this next point is for the males, and that is the fact that Mastic Essential oil is a fantastic prostate decongestant as well. Those of you who are facing prostate problems can take advantage of this natural resource to reduce congestion, swelling, and increase the elasticity/tonicity of the prostate, all while maintaining your integrity.
Tip: Because Mastic Essential oil does contain linalool and limonene, before applying it fully, do a test patch on your skin first to rule out potential skin reactions
When it comes to Mastic Essential oil, there are a couple of different ways you can use it. The first one is mixing about 5 drops of Mastic Essential oil with your preferred carrier oil (like almond or coconut oil) and massaging it into your skin. Doing this will treat poor circulation, improve lymph flow, and clear airways. For respiratory and congestive issues, in particular, rub the mixture on your chest for the best results.
Another way you can use it is through aromatherapy. Add about 3 drops to your oil burner or diffuser and soak in the therapeutic properties that protrude into the air. Not only will it deodorize your space, but it will relieve you from respiratory problems to help you breathe much better.
Fun Fact: For some more insight, Mastic Essential oil blends very well with Allspice, Cassie, Bay Laurel, Rose, Beeswax, Benzoin, Frankincense, Bergamot, Lemon, Carrot Seed, Cedarwood, Cassia, Clary Sage, Clove Bud, Balsam, Cinnamon, Coriander Seed, Fir, Galbanum, Guaiacwood, Sandalwood, Hay, Lavender, Lime, Nutmeg, Oakmoss, Orange, Rosewood, Vanilla, Vetiver, Violet Leaf, and Ylang-ylang.
Dealing with any type of decongestant issue is never a pleasant experience, but one that everyone faces at some point or another. And with so many medications on the market that also come with many unpleasant side effects, know that you have much better, quality-rich options available to you like Mastic Essential oil. Whether it be from allergies, sickness, to even prostate congestion, Mastic Essential oil is an ideal solution to ease people back to quality health and get them back up on their feet fast.
Overall, the benefits of Mastic Essential oil are seemingly endless, making this a fundamental natural resource to have in your cabinet for when such life challenges arise. Remember, preparing for congestion of any kind may be wise, but what is even wiser is going with a natural product that is actually proven to work in more ways than one.
