How to get the most out of the natural power of essential oils?


Aromatic lamp/ Diffuser


These small and beautiful lamps are sold in home and decoration shops. They have a small basin that pours hot water, put a few drops of essential oil in it and light a small candle to heat the water. So the aromatic vapors surround the entire room in which the lamp is on.



Inhalations are great therapy during the winter days. Inhaling of aromatic vapors will help relieve sinuses in cold, reduce tension and headaches.




Massage in combination with essential oils is one of the most recommended stress therapies. This will help you to relax the whole body. You can trust a masseur or a loved one. Also add a few drops of oil to your daily body lotion. You can apply a few drops to both your wrists and the back of your neck.




Different essential oils are great for combining with bath salts. Make a therapeutic hot tub, in which, besides salts, add one, two or more flavors of oils.


Hair and skin products


Essential oils do wonders with your hair and skin, and at the same time keep you in good mood for hours. Add them to shampoos, hair masks, face and body creams.

Be sure to add more aroma to your home for positive energy.
