Essential oils are used across beauty, skin care, new age health, massage, and different spiritual practices, but how much do you really know about their uses? What would you use to calm down? Which can be used on the skin, which can be ingested, and which should never be ingested? Some can clear your skin, some can help you sleep, others can help heal bug bites, and some are even disinfectants. While essential oils have many positive benefits, it is crucial to know when and how to use them. Some can have side effects if you are sensitive to them, or can even cause different skin or health conditions.
This is why you should know all you can about the different oils before you put them on your skin or hair or use them in your home. Just throwing a bunch of random oils at a problem definitely won't solve it, and may even make things worse. Always do your research before using any essential oil for any purpose.
