What's all the buzz about Essential Oils? We are seeing them everywhere now and for good reason. Most are are high in antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Each has its own wonderful properties, for example scientific studies have shown that rosemary essential oil helps your brain perform and Clary sage helps with PMS.
Do you know the difference in fragrance oils and essential oils? I have been using essential oils (EOs) in homemade spa products and in blends for their healing properties and aromatheraphy benefits.
I am still learning as there is a lot to learn. But this site from crunchybetty.com is a good place to start for the basics. They offer some really good advice. Did you know there is simple test you can do to test your essential oil to see how “pure” it is? They tell us to, "put a single drop of it on a piece of construction paper. If it evaporates quickly and leaves no noticeable ring, it is pure. If you have a ring left, then it is likely diluted by the manufacturer with an oil of some sort (this test will not work for myrrh, patchouli, and absolutes)." Now that's a good thing to know.
