Guide to Essential Oils
Many essential oils have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibiotic properties. Many are also high in antioxidants. Because they penetrate the skin more easily, they act much faster than other medicines.
Each essential oil has a list of ailments it can help with. For example, lavender helps with burns, bug bites, rashes, and can act as a disinfectant all while providing a calming scent. Tea tree oil is great for acne, cold sores, and warts.
Not only are there a lot of oils to choose from, but you can use them in various ways as well. They can be diluted in lotion or a carrier oil, like olive oil or jojoba oil, and used in massage. You can add a few drops into bath water, or into a vaporizer. Alternatively, you can add some to warm water and inhale the steam, or put it directly onto a tissue and breathe in.
