Mode of Usage

Like I mentioned in the article of introduction to essential oils, these essential oils can be used topically, internally or aromatically.

Topically- Apply it on the site of the concerned area. For example if you have a dark spot that you want to get rid of, you could apply Lemon essential oil on the spot and leave it in. Certain essential oils may require carrier oils. The most commonly used carrier oils are Coconut oil and Olive Oil.

Internally- The essential oil may be consumed by adding a couple of drops in water, coffee or any of your favorite drinks. You could also consume them in the form of capsules. Essential oils are very concentrated. Aromatically:

You can use a diffuser and add a couple of drops in there apply the product in your palms or wrist and sniff them.  Who wouldn’t love to smell these lovely fragrances?

So we now have a gist of all the essential oils we need for the most common skin and hair concerns.  Get your essential oil, it’s certainly worth a try.

Stay beautiful!
