Benefits of Essential Oils
What are essential oils?
Essential oils (EO) are highly concentrated scented oils extracted from plants. Historically, they’ve been used in medicine, cosmetics, perfumes, food, and aromatherapy. Essential oils are “essential” because they contain the “essence” of the plant, meaning the taste or odor.
A wonderful benefit of using essential oils is that they have few, if any, side effects.
Some amazing uses for EO are:
- Improve your mood and mental state, also enhancing memory
- Reduce a headache or feelings of nausea
- Alleviate stiff, sore muscles and joints
- Topical applications
- DIY beauty products
