What are some of the ways you use essential oils?
I am just starting to explore the uses of essential oils. I love the way a diffuser makes a room smell. Now I want to learn more about the oils as an alternative to western medicine.

Thanks Denis! I am just learning about them and trying to find recipes and usages. I was surprised that some of these oils are actually ingested. I am first going to try mixing them and putting in the little roller ball vials for perfume and mood.
Similarly, I am also starting to use essential oils. I am doing research on it. I learned that some essential oils have multi-uses both medicinal and for pleasure. There are some essential oils that can be use in and about the house as cleanser, treatment and/or preservation, and polisher for furniture and other house fixtures, and prevent pests and insects.
I went on some sites to help me learn and purchase the essential oils I need:
Thanks for the websites. I checked out doTerra so far...pretty pricey. I bought my first nine oils at a local whole foods store. I am going to try to mix the with a carrier oil and make fragrances. I also want to make shampoo and soap.
Yes, doTerra is expensive. I like their site because I can click on the oil and a pop-up thought would say the uses of it.
Do you have to join doTerra to use this site? I am going to check.
No you don't have to be a member. Just click on the PRODUCTS page and go to the Single Oils. Put your mouse on the essential oil you like and click and a pop up thought will open.
Whatever you do, essential oils are NOT for consumption, not even if you try to dilute them with water - it won't be enough. Like one drop needs more then 8 gallons to be made relatively non-toxic, and even then you'll have digestive problems. So yeah.....
If you want to use them for baths, don't add drops directly to the water, trying mixing a drop or two with epsom salts first so that they'll dilute and not just sit on top of the bath water.
Most importantly, less is more.

I have increased the word count of this hub. It has quality pictures and relevant video, it is not overly promotional--so why is it considered "low quality"? I have longer hubs, for sure, but I also have...
