Using essential oils can add natural fragrance while also giving you the therapeutic benefits of the oil. Essential oils can form an integral part of holistic living and healing. These oils are very concentrated, so only a very small amount is needed for most applications.
Essential oils can be used to treat a myriad of symptoms. Since essential oils are so concentrated, care must be taken in their use. Too much of a good thing can also cause additional problems, or perhaps give an allergic reaction.
Essential oils can be used as topical antiseptics for minor cuts and insect bites. Muscle pain can be alleviated by using essential oils when massaging sore muscles. Fungal infections can also be treated effectively using essential oils.
Essential oils can be used in shampoos and conditioners, toothpastes and bath soaks. They are in perfumes and air fresheners. Once you are aware of the many uses of essential oils, you will start finding uses for them almost everywhere.
