Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants which are thought to capture the essence of nature. Essential oils are highly aromatic, and some commonly used types include eucalyptus oil, lavender oil and tea tree oil, although there are more than 90 types of oils available on the market today.

Essential oils are often used in aromatherapy to treat minor ailments such as stress, anxiety, headaches and migraines. They are applied topically to the body or added to carrier oils to be applied through massage.

Make your own products

You can use essential oils in combination with other natural ingredients to make your own beauty supplies, make-up or household cleaning products. Just add carrier oils or water which can then be added to roller bottles to apply as a perfume, to spray bottles to create room deodorisers, or to be used in addition with soap to create a natural hand wash, body wash or shampoo.


A popular way to use essential oils in the home is by adding them to a diffuser which disperses the oil into the air. There a range of different diffusers available on the market. They often come with built-in nightlights and different mist modes to suit your needs. Use one type of oil or mix oils together to create your own custom fragrance which will leave your house smelling like a day spa.
