Peppermint, lavender or sage essential oils can provide you with some amazing curative effects, especially when it comes for menstrual pain, digestive problems, mood swings, depression, insomnia, acne and many more.
But, there are some common mistakes that people make when it comes to buying and using essential oils. Here are three common mistakes when using essential oils, which you must avoid:
Applying essential oils near your eyes
On the Internet there are some rumors that lavender oil can improve the growth of your eyelashes. However one thing you need to know is that you must not apply lavender oil near your eye. The same applies for any essential oil. Namely what we are trying to say is that if the oil gets into your eye it will be very difficult to get out of it, and it will lead you to a lot of pain.
Spraying essential oil around your pets
There are many reports, according to which, cats and dogs are dying because of essential oils. The tea tree oil, for example, turned out to be toxic to dogs, who after being in contact with this oil are brought to the vet with tremors, lack of coordination, weakness and vomiting.
Overuse of essential oils
Essential oils are highly concentrated substances. Therefore the use of essential oils is like using any other drug. That is why you need to use essential oils moderately and only when necessary.
