You might be familiar with the uses of essential oils particularly at spa treatments and massage parlours.

Essential oils commonly used by therapists promote relaxation because the aromatic compounds within those oils have a therapeutic effect on the body. They can induce relaxation or increase alertness, depending on the oil used. Aromatherapy works by stimulating the smell receptors in the nose, which then send messages to the limbic system (the part of the brain that controls emotions) via the nervous system.

But while aromatic diffusion is one of the most popular uses of essential oils, there are many other handy uses of essential oils in daily life and around the home. In the home care market, essential oils are on the rise as more brands and consumers grow aware of their benefits and versatility around the house.

From aromatic candles to antibacterial cleaners, there are plenty of reasons to keep a few bottles of essential oils at home. Here are a few ways you can use essential oils at home.
