Essential Oils - From Personal Care to Home Cleaning
Since the first recorded essential oil blend was recorded in Egypt in 1,500 BC, people around the world have been using essential oils for their perceived medicinal properties. Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural smell and flavor, or “essence,” of their source. They can be inhaled, diluted or applied to the skin. They may stimulate your sense of smell or have medicinal effects when absorbed.

Apart from providing a pleasant smell, aromatherapy oils can provide respiratory disinfection, decongestant, and psychological benefits. Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell, including the nose and the brain. So next time when your mood needs lifting, raise it with just a whiff of an essential oil fragrance.
Keep in mind that essential oils are strong and often require dilution.
