Up until a few years ago, when I needed something, I ran to the store for it. When I had a headache or muscle ache, my first thought was to take an over the counter medication. Sometimes this is necessary but I’ve started thinking about other alternatives first.

8 Easy Essential Oil Crafts

Easy Essential Oil Crafts

Essential oils have many different healing properties.  They are oils extracted from plants that in many cases our ancestors used successfully to cure problems they were having.  While we’re used to heading to the store to deal with our problems, there are many different essential oils and natural herbs and plants that will do the same thing.

These eight easy essential oil crafts are a great place to start if you’re curious about using essential oils for your health and beauty needs.  Please make sure that you purchase essential oils and NOT fragrance oils. They are not the same thing. Fragrance oils have no healing properties.  I always try to find organic essential oils when possible so that they are as pure as possible.

Here are a few basic definitions to get you started:

  • Essential Oil – a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.
  • Fragrance Oil – also known as aroma oils, aromatic oils, and flavor oils, are blended synthetic aroma compounds or natural essential oils that are diluted with a carrier like propylene glycol, vegetable oil or mineral oil.
  • Aromatherapy -the use of aromatic plant extracts and essential oils in massage, baths or other uses to promote well being.

Here are the easy essential oil crafts to get you started:
