How to use essential oils the right ways

Be careful

I found the list below years ago when I first began dabbling with essential oils.  There is so much information available in books and on the internet.  Just be careful and do your research, especially if you are pregnant or have medical conditions.

The list

Here are the recipes list:
  1. For Scent-Sational smelling towels, sheets, clothes, etc., place a few drops of your favorite essential oil onto a small piece of terry cloth and toss into the clothes dryer while drying. Add 5 drops of essential oil to ¼ cup fabric softener or water and place in the center cup of the wash.
  2. Potpourri which has lost its scent can be revived by adding a few drops of essential oil.
  3. Add a few drops of essential oil to water in a spray bottle and use as an air freshener.
  4. Another easy air freshener is to add a few drops of essential oil to a pan of water and simmer on a stove or in a potpourri pot.
  5. To enjoy a scented candle, place a drop or two of oil into the hot melted wax as the candle burns.

  8. Ease headache pain by rubbing a drop of Rosemary/Lavender oil onto the back of your neck.
