4 Most Common Uses of Essential Oils
What most people know about essential oils is that they can be used in oil diffusers for aromatherapy purposes, but did you know that they can also be used in several others awesome fashions? Here are the 4 most common uses of essential oils:
MASSAGES: Add up to 15 drops into at least 1 ounce of carrier oil to dilute properly. This way, the blend will be safe to use directly on the skin and will provide you with the health benefits of each oil.
COMPRESSES: There’s nothing more annoying than getting a headache after being focused on a task for a while. Get rid of it by adding up to 10 drops into a bowl filled with 1-2 cups of water. Soak a compress in it, wring it out so no water drips from it and apply to the head or neck.
WARM BATHS: It’s simple; warm water opens up your pores which lets the oils penetrate the skin. Add up to 20 drops in a warm bath to enjoy all the aromatherapy benefits.
DIFFUSERS: Fill the tank with water and add 10-15 drops of essential oil. Then put the tank on the diffuser and hit the start button. Most models can diffuse for 6 to 8 hours, and you can smell the aroma of the oils almost as soon as you turn them on.
