Essential Oils smell great and there is some clinical evidence that some can help us in a variety of ways. Botanical medicine uses are not new and have been used historically. Most of our medicines originated from plants. Common sense must come first. If you have a symptom or illness, please see your health practitioner. Do not use alternative medicine, be it essential oils or anything else without due diligence. We must all take responsibility for our own bodies. Essential oils, like all alternatives can be lovely adjuncts to health care.
