Some Essential oils that are used for massage, bath and application for skin therapy purposes:

  1. Jasmine is used as an aphrodisiac. Jasmine essential oil is in common use and its flowers are either extracted by the labour-intensive method chemical extraction. It is expensive due to the large number of flowers needed to produce a small amount of oil. The flowers have to be gathered at night because the odour of jasmine is more powerful after dark. The flowers are laid out on cotton cloths soaked in olive oil for several days and then extracted leaving the true jasmine essence.
  2. Lavender oil is used as an antiseptic, to soothe minor cuts and burns, to calm and relax, for insomnia and to soothe headaches and migraines as well.
