Essential Oils – Household Use

Essential oils, sourced from plants, are used worldwide for the purpose of uplifting mood plus cognitive, psychological or physical wellbeing. Essential oils are now considered both a complementary therapy and an alternative medicine

Aromatherapists, who specialise in the practice of aromatherapy, utilise blends of therapeutic essential oils that can be issued through topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to stimulate a desired response

Some essential oils, such as tea tree, have demonstrated anti-microbial effects as well as the anti-bacterial / fungal / viral properties and are excellent for cleaning, disinfecting and neutralising smells  around the home

You do not have to be ill or in need of therapy to use these highly concentrated aromatic plant essences for positive effect – either in or on your body or within your household

Always look for 100% PURE oils
