The use of natural essential oils for aromatherapy is an ancient and time-honored tradition that’s been enhancing moods and lifting spirits for thousands of years. Essential oils are liquid plant essences that are genuine reflections of the botanicals from which they’re born. These popular essential oils are ideal for aromatherapy and homeopathic treatments. A few drops of oil poured into a diffuser can fill a room with the lush, relaxing scent of lavender, or the smell of eucalyptus, which is linked to aiding decongestion. To use the oils as a personal fragrance or as massage oils, these scents should be mixed with a carrier oil to make it safe for contact with the skin.
