Each oil has its own medicinal or other properties, these are used for a wide range of therapeutic purposes including external application, inhalation, oral ingestion etc.  

Inhalation is achieved using a diffuser, room spray or vaporisers.

Many traditional medicines from around the world have recognized the healing properties of essential oils for generations.

Here are some facts about essential oils to introduce you to their benefits.

  • Essential oils are stored in dark bottles (normally those made of amber glass) because the oils can turn rancid if not kept properly in this manner.
  • One of the most popular essential oils is peppermint oil, which may help to relieve constipation, diarrhoea, heartburn, depression, stress, brain fog, memory, pain, sleepiness, headaches, indigestion, coughs, muscle fatigue, and more.
  • Essential oils can be derived from many parts of a plant — they can be made from bark, leaves, stems, and even flowers or blossoms (chamomile and lavender are two examples). Some oils are made from the rind of fruit, such as orange and lemon.
  • Essential oils are safer to use to clean your house than chemicals with artificial scents, which can cause allergic reactions and exposure to harmful toxins. Clove oil, for example, has been shown to kill bacteria and parasites; it also adds a nice, calming, warming scent to your home. Lemon, with its potent antiseptic properties, is a wonderful essential oil to use for cleaning purposes.
  • Like spices, essential oils have a limited shelf life — their therapeutic benefits lose potency over time. If you wait too long or store them improperly, they may oxidize and turn rancid.
  • Essential oils should not be refrigerated. It is recommended to store essential oils in a cool, dark place, (away from any heat sources), or in a bathroom cupboard (but not one near a shower, where steam can cause the oils to overheat and oxidize).
  • Some essential oils help to improve cold symptoms when used in a diffuser. Oils such as rosemary, eucalyptus, cinnamon, spearmint, and peppermint are effective for this purpose.
