young 10


Essential oils have become a part of many people’s personal care routine. From skincare to mental wellness, most of us have begun appreciating the benefits of using essential oils.

You see them in your “Tita Must-Haves,” celebrities’ “What’s in My Bag,” and even as part of basic household items. Incorporating essential oils may have started as a trend but now, it has become part of our day-to-day kit.

So what is the fuss all about?

Read on to know more about what essential oils are and their health benefits. We will also be sharing how to use them properly and where you can find the best essential oils out there.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are concentrated extracts that come from plants, herbs, and trees. They usually are extracted from a plant’s fruit, flower, leaves, or even barks.

Essential oils are either distilled or cold pressed, capturing the aroma or “essence” of the plants that they are harvested from. In terms of health benefits, these oils come out to be more potent and concentrated than the actual flowers and leaves.  

How To Use Essential Oils

There are a number of ways on how to use essential oils. You can explore any of them depending on your lifestyle and your day-to-day routine. 

Basically, there are just three simple, no-fuss ways you can play around with your essences:

  1. Topically

Essential oils can be applied to the skin using different techniques. Others may be able to tolerate using them undiluted and dab the oil directly onto their neck or temples. However, essential oils are highly concentrated and doing so may result in irritation and burns, especially to those with sensitive skin.

One of the best ways to apply essential oil topically is to dilute it in a carrier oil. Carrier oils are derived from vegetarian sources and have a neutral smell unlike essential oils which carry a strong aroma. Also, carrier oils do not evaporate easily making them a good medium for dilution.

To avoid any adverse skin reaction, it is always best to perform a skin patch test before slathering essential oils on your body.

Once you find that your skin can tolerate the oils, you can use them as a massage oil, or even as part of your skincare arsenal.

  1. Aromatically

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy and essential oils usually go hand in hand. Ever entered a spa and your mood changes almost instantly upon smelling the incredible scent? That’s aromatherapy. 

Inhaling essential oils can be therapeutic. Breathing in the aroma makes the scent molecules of the essential oil travel to and affect the emotion center of our brain, the amygdala.

This is why essential oils are almost always sold with and used in diffusers. Different oils usually have different intended effects. For example, you can use a lemon oil blend to boost your mood or a lavender one for a soothing calm.

No diffuser? No problem. Put a couple of drops of your chosen oil to a cotton ball and place it around your house. You’ll be amazed how this simple trick can revitalize your spaces!

3. Internally

Did you know that you can actually consume essential oils? Yes, you can — but be careful: not all essential oils can be ingested.

If you’re wondering which essential oils are safe to ingest, make sure to look for the purest available and that they come from plants that are safe for human consumption. Bottomline: always read the manufacturer’s label. 

Some companies formulate essential oils specifically for internal use. These oils can be added to your water to add flavor and help in keeping you hydrated. A drop of certain essential oils can also add kick to your cooking, too!

Remember that essential oils are highly concentrated and are very potent. We cannot stress enough the importance of reading the label and instructions before using an essential oil, especially when consuming them.
