Mankind has benefited from the use of essential oils for centuries but the term aromatherapy was not developed until the 1920’s in France. These oils are drawn from plants and flowers by the process of distillation which results in a  fragrant and highly potent essential oil. Essential oils can be a skin irritant and should be diluted in a carrier oil for use on the skin. However, there are many different ways to enjoy aromatherapy essential oils.

  • Sprinkle a few drops in your hot tub, jacuzzi, trash cans, drains, or toilet bowls to fight bacteria and odors
  • Place a few drops on the filter pad of your vacuum cleaner to spread freshness throughout the room
  • Add a few drops on the edge of your toilet paper roll before placing on the holder
  • Mix from 15 – 30 drops of essential oils with 2 cups of purified water in a spray bottle and use as an air freshener

Remember, essential oils are highly concentrated and must be used with extreme respect and care. Always use caution when experimenting with essential oils.
