Essential oils are naturally occurring oils, the essence of the plants they originate from. They are chemicals naturally made by the plants and are derived from the leaves, herbs, barks, and rinds. Essential oils have many benefits, some essential oils are used to promote calmness and relaxation while others are known to have anti-bacterial properties. Essential oils are concentrated and contain allergens, therefore they must be used diluted in a carrier oil to prevent possible skin sensitisation. Do an allergy skin test patch on a small area of your body especially if you know you’re sensitive to essential oils.
