From Ancient India, Egypt, Persia to European countries, essential or aromatic oils have been used for thousands of years for their physical, mental and emotionally- elevating properties. Extracted through cold pressing or a careful steam distillation process, essential oils are powerful healers. Each fragrance works uniquely on different parts of the physical and emotional body.

Since direct application may cause irritation, a few drops of any essential oil must be diluted with a carrier oil for application. Carrier oils are organic vegetable oils derived from the fatty parts of particular plants, seeds and nuts whereas essential oils are distilled from bark, root, leaves of a botanical. You can use them in your bath, as incense, for massages or for direct application on cuts and bruises. Here is a list of the top 8 most healing essential oils:
