Essential oils are concentrated extracts of various plants. Practitioners use them in natural and alternative health practices, such as aromatherapy and naturopathy. These oils can be used to make natural beauty, health and cleaning products that are free from dangerous chemicals.
Essential Oils can be used in the following ways:
Aromatically – diffuse the oil throughout your home using an oil diffuser. You can also directly inhale the oil by sniffing it right out of the bottle.
Topically – these oils can be applied to the skin topically, but you should always dilute it with a carrier oil (like coconut oil) in a 1:1 ratio before applying it.
