Essential Oils can be used therapeutically in our everyday lives by adding them to our Electric Vaporizer / candle burner, rings or bath. They can be massaged into the skin after diluting them in a carrier oil such as grapeseed. Certain essential oils such as tea tree and lavender can be applied undiluted to the skin in certain cases such as insect bites, but dilution with a carrier oil is recommended. They can be added to creams to assist with certain skin conditions and a few drops added to a bowl of boiling water will act as an inhaler – allow the water to cool slightly, or the oils will be too strong.
They can be made into room sprays either to simply freshen a room or to kill bacterial infections such as flu. Certain essential oils affect the Respiratory System when they are inhaled because they contain antispasmodic, expectorant and antiseptic properties which benefit sufferers of bronchitis, flu and hay fever.
Certain Essential Oils benefit the respiratory Muscular System as they are easily absorbed by the skin into the bloodstream. Application of these oils assist in removing toxins via the tissues, relieve inflammation and reduce swelling, in so doing help with sprains, cramp, arthritis, rheumatism and stiffness.
