Essential oils are believed to have a beneficial effect on the mind, body, and spirit. Many essential oils are used to treat specific ailments or complaints.
Like herbs and minerals, the FDA does not regulate essential oils. Most medical doctors do not consider them a valid treatment for what ails you, although those who use them are believers. But check with your doctor first. If you have allergies or anaphylaxis, you’ll probably want to avoid most essential oils.
