Using Essential Oils on the Skin and In the Mouth
Essential Oils for Oral Health
There is more to oral health than brushing and flossing. In addition to tongue-scraping and oral probiotics, changing your oral health products could make a huge difference in the quality of your oral (and overall) health!
Some of the best oils that can be used in DIY natural kinds of toothpaste or mouthwashes are clove, peppermint, and tea tree, for example. Be sure to read the recommendations for such usages, such as diluting with carrier oils before applying to the gums and sensitive oral cavity.
Essential Oils for Topical (On the Skin) Use
Many essential oils are not good for neat (undiluted) use on the skin or in the mouth. Never add undiluted essential oils to bath water as they can injure or burn the skin. There are, of course, gentle essential oils that are great for the skin. Neroli oil, for example, promotes circulation and soothes irritation. Rose oil moisturizes the skin and is used as a gentle toner. Chamomile is used for acne and other skin conditions. There is an essential oil for any beauty concern you might have from head to toe!
