Four Essential Oils that Detoxify the Body

Four Essential Oils that Detoxify the Body

Every day we are exposed to a range of elements that can be toxic for the body: pollution, stress, processed foods, air- and food-borne chemicals, and more.

If you live in a place free of cars and factories, you live a life free of stress, and you make all your food from scratch – you are a lucky minority in today’s urbanized world. For the rest of us, we need to think about the best ways to keep out body in balance through regular detoxification.

Detoxification is comprised of ridding your body of toxic chemicals and components, stress, negative thoughts, anxiety, and organisms that can make you sick. There is still much clinical research to be carried out to demonstrate the positive effects of essential oils in these areas, but those who have used essential oils swear by their effectiveness.

Here are some essential oils that help detoxify the body:

  1. Juniper oil:
    Juniper oil comes from juniper berries and needles, and it has a wide range of detoxifying uses due to its antioxidant and relaxing properties. It is a “depurative”, meaning that it is believed to help clean toxifying elements from the blood, including heavy metals and pollutants.

  2. Peppermint oil:
    Peppermint oil has a very strong smell, and very potent effects regarding muscular relaxation, while at the same time improving concentration.

  3. Spearmint oil:
    For many people, peppermint oil is much too strong, and may cause irritation when used topically. Spearmint oil is a much less potent option.

  4. Grapefruit oil:
    Grapefruit oil is one of the less known essential oils, but it may be effective for staving off bacteria and viruses, while relieving muscle pain, menstrual cramps, and even mental fatigue when used topically.


Integrate these essential oils into your regular health routine to stay healthy, reduce pain, and eliminate stress.
