benefits for your skin:
1. promotes relaxation
vanilla is widely credited as a calming substance that creates positive associations and evokes feelings of warmth and happiness. that’s one of the primary reasons that it is used in so many bath and body products: it evokes such a relaxing sensation.
the sloan-kettering cancer center in new york has used vanilla aromatherapy during patient MRI scans for nearly 30 years based on the premise that the scent calms feelings of anxiety and claustrophobia.
2. defends against disease
vanilla has been shown to significantly reduce the presence of harmful bacteria. it has also been shown to stop bacteria from spreading and joining with other kinds of bacteria. these properties have been attributed to the action of the eugenol and vanillin hydroxybenzaldehyde found in vanilla essential oil.
3. boosts skin and hair health
the vanilla essential oil contains b vitamins that are important for healthy and shiny hair. the niacin, thiamin, and pantothenic acid found in vanilla essential oil help promote skin health, keeping skin clear of acne and fending off free radical damage. it can also help prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
