Three Ways To Use Essential Oils

Essential oils can be used in one of three ways—

1) Topical application including massage, warm packs, cold packs, compress, bath, shower, and direct application (the most common way).

2) Aromatherapy—diffusion of oils into the air aids in mental and emotional wellness and also reduces fungus, bacteria, mold, and unpleasant odors.

3) Internal and oral use as a dietary supplement—Many essential oils are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) or certified as Food Additives (FA) by the FDA and may be taken as dietary supplements. Direction from a knowledgeable health professional is recommended for all dietary supplementation.
