How do essential oils work?
 When applied topically, essential oils penetrate the skin and distribute their beneficial effects to the surrounding tissues. They are also capable of absorbing into the blood stream and having wide spread effects. The aroma of essential oils are shown to have direct therapeutic effects on the mind and body, this is called aroma therapy.

Are these products safe?
There is always a risk of allergic reaction, so it is recommended to perform a patch test before using any product. Place a tiny dab of the product on your forearm and wait one hour for reactions. If the skin is unchanged, continue using the oil. If there is a reaction, consult your physician. The pain relief oil contains natural salicylates similar to aspirin, this makes it dangerous if used by someone allergic to or currently taking aspirin. Always carefully follow each products directions and warnings.
