Essential oils come in all kinds of scents and each scent is said to do different things. Also remember a little goes a long way! You don’t want to over do it either! One drop should do it! But add more as needed. Most will need to be diluted with water.

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it’s called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.
