Essential oils list and benefits

Categories

 

 

I am sure by now you’ve heard about essential oils from someone, somewhere, but do you know what all the fuss is about?  Essential oils ,I believe ,are one of natures best kept secrets. They are extremely versatile, one single oil has about 100 different uses. From emotional and spiritual well being to  health to cleaning. There is nothing these oils can’t do. I personally use essential oils everyday and in my recipes you’ll notice I add them often. 

Very important to remember Essential  oils are at the plants purest form, which means they are very strong and can cause adverse affects if not used correctly. They must always be diluted into a carrier oil. 10 drops of Essential oil per 1 tablespoon of carrier oil is all you need. A little goes a long way!

I have created a list of essential oils from A-Z , explaining their uses and benefits.
