Essential Oils

by Lexi Cowan

Essential Oils are the fragrances of the world. Every time you smell a flower or inhale the new arriving seasons, you’re smelling the delightful oils of Earth. Many of these scents help with multiple annoyances. Both physical and mental stress can be helped through application of this product. You can use different methods to get results. The first thing you can do is set atop a burning flame and let the air become engulfed. This is known as Aromatic. The second method, and most common, is to apply on the skin. Just a few drops either on the palms, wrists, or neck. This is known as Topical. The third method is to use them in your recipes. Many oils have dietary benefits and are used as flavoring or for nutritious aid. This is called the Internal Method.
