Essential Oil Uses and Benefits

There are a variety of essential oils on the market that can have many uses and benefits. They are often used for aromatherapy, cleaning solutions, sleep aids, immunity boosters, personal care, beauty treatments, and food. Each oil has its specific benefits, but many can be paired together. This gives you the ability to customize your scent for whatever you choose to use it for. For example, when using it as a cleaning solution, you can mix different combinations of oils into water within a spray bottle. It then becomes a natural air freshener or surface cleaner. It can also be used to freshen linens and other laundry along with furniture. Oils great as cleaning agents are lemon, tea tree, lavender, and eucalyptus, among others.

Many oils overlap in benefits. Lavender is commonly used to relieve stress as is sandalwood, and bergamot. Peppermint is used to boost energy and assist with digestion. It's also great for headaches as is chamomile.
