Essentials oils are used in a variety of ways, both for physical healing, as well as for practicing magic.
Physically, essential oils are often natural alternatives to over the counter medication. Essentials oils are concentrated dilutions of oil distilled from a plant or herb’s roots, stems or leaves. These concentrated dilutions are very powerful. Essential oils have a highly effective dispersion rate, allowing them to filter throughout the entire body within minutes of contact. Essential oils can be administered in a variety of ways, depending on the oil. Some can be applied topically to the skin, some can be ingested in food or drink, and others are meant only for smelling. Carefully learn about the oil you plan to use to make sure it’s safe before applying it to your skin or consuming it.
Essential oils offer a variety of anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and antibiotic remedies for a host of issues. They can also be used for aromatherapy to regulate mood. Of course, essential oils also have magical uses.
