How to Use Essential Oils
You can use essential oils in multiple ways. The most popular method is to use them with a diffuser. Diffusers work by breaking down the oils into molecules and then dispersing them into the air. From here, you can enjoy a nice, calming scent permeating throughout your living space that isn't too powerful or overbearing.
Another popular method is to use an oil burner. Oil burners work a little differently than diffusers. There is a small bowl in which you place water and a few drops of your essential oil. You then place a lighted tea light underneath the bowl and heat it so the oil-water mixture begins to evaporate. This disperses the mixture into the air.
The third method of using essential oils is with reed diffusers. Reed diffusers work by putting long wooden sticks, or "reeds", into a narrow-necked bottle. The essential oil is poured into the bottle and the reeds absorb the liquid and naturally disperse it into the air. These provide a more continuous scent throughout your home.
You can also use a few drops of Freshkin essential oil in your skincare routine and with your laundry.
