What can you do with Essential Oils Back to Top

Essential oils can be used in your home in a variety of ways, the smell alone will give you pleasure, not to mention the therapeutic properties. You don't need any special equipment it  can be as simple as unscrewing a bottle and sniffing it. We have listed below some popular methods of use.

Essential oils are highly valued for their many benefits gained by inhalation, skin absorption, and aesthetic use in natural skin preparations.

Using a single essential oil or a blend of essential oils to create high quality massage blends, herbal ointments, therapy baths and saunas, body wraps, compresses, scalp treatments, air fresheners, and natural fragrances.

Take an aromatherapy Bath to calm your nerves, soothe your aching muscles, and clear your mind. This is truly one of the most effective methods of gaining the powerful benefits of essential oils. To your fully drawn bath add 8 to 10 drops of pure essential oil along with 1 teaspoon of carrier oil (such as Sweet Almond Oil or use your bath/shower gel). Gently stir bath water just before you enter. Relax in the tub for 20 minutes and then rest for at least 1/2 hour.

Enjoy your own Custom Lotion by making an aromatherapy Body Balm. For a full body lotion add 15 to 20 drops essential oil to each ounce of body Lotion.. Shake well.

A simple and convenient method for Inhalation is to place 2 to 5 drops of pure essential oil on a clean tissue, then inhale. Another quick method is to rub a few drops of essential oil in the palms of your hands, then inhale. Try this with Rosemary to revive your senses.

Aromatherapy is often associated with body massage and pleasant fragrances only. Essential oils are versatile and there are many application variations which may be used effectively to benefit from the therapeutic properties of these oils. As with massage, knowledge and caution need to be exercised as harm may result if not used accurately.
