>practical_applications_of_essential_oils

Essential oils are diverse and concentrated; they provide a natural, practical method to help prevent illness and alleviate common symptoms. An essential oil on its own can provide a multitude of practical uses.

Lavender can be used in first aid to calm a burn and begin the skin's healing process right away - and lavender can also be used as a natural insect deterrent - place a few drops on windowsills to discourage mosquitoes and moths. Seeking restful sleep? Place a couple drops of lavender on your pillowcase before going to bed.
