From familiar soothing lavender, to mind-zinging lemon and the glorious “mmm…” of rose absolute, essential oils have always done it for me. But what to use for what? What to mix with what? And how to use them for whom? This chart provides some answers. “The 16 Essential Oils for home use” is a really comprehensive at a glance chart, more of a book on one page. Enjoy using oils – I really am!
Essential oils have been used for medicine and therapeutic treatments for thousands of years and can be used as a blended massage oil, in the bath, as a wash, as a cold compress, in a cream or lotion, in an oil burner or simply as a gorgeous personalised perfume.
