If you are looking for how to use essential oils for aromatherapy, then you’ve come to the right place because that is what this post is all about!
I love essential oils because they are a great option for those looking to live a healthier life using natural methods.
Knowing the different essential oil application methods is important if you want to take advantage of the health benefits of these EOs.
So here are the different ways you can use essential oils.
The most popular method of use for essential oil is diffusion. Diffusing means spreading or dispersing the EO so you can inhale the aroma.
You can use a diffuser at home or office to scent the room, prevent he spread of germs and infections, relieve stress, aid sleep among many others.

When we hear “diffusion” of essential oils, a lot of us tend to think of just using mechanical or electrical devises.
However, you can also use simple and easy to get things like issue paper or cotton balls.
Even though I have a diffuser, I still use cotton balls to diffuse essential oils some times.
There are also hand crated essential oil diffuser jewelries out there you can use. I love these jewelries because they helps you make fashion statement even while enjoying the benefits of essential oils.

Warm bath is another effective method of using essential oils. We all know that warm bath can be very soothing.
So imagine the effect you will get by adding a few drops of EOs to your bath water and soaking yourself in it for 20-30 minutes.
