Yes, there sure are healing benefits with essential oils. Inside our store in the back work room, we had 100’s of bottles of essential oils and carrier oils. Plus all the other bottles of fragrance oils, soap making oils, and packages of clays, salts, waxes, and on and on. Once you get started with making natural products, you won’t want to stop. Fact is, I’ve been treating my headaches for years with essential oils – because yes, they really do work.
We created synergistic blends for specific purposes. I have not added the exact amount of each essential oil as you will want to experiment with blending yourself. Generally, we used equal amounts of each essential oil. All of these blends would be created then added to a carrier oil such as coconut or sweet almond.

Generally, the carrier oil choice for most therapeutic essential oils blends is jojoba. This is a skin friendly, hypo-allergenic, quickly absorbing oil. It is one of the oils I use undiluted on my face. You could also use any of these blends in a therapeutic bath salt, recipes and more info here.
Essential oils do need to be stored in glass bottles and not plastic. Essential oils can degrade plastic and cause an unfriendly smell to your product, more here.
