The lavender oil and rosemary oil are two notable oils that are used quite often in aromatherapy. Lavender oil is used in aromatherapy for treating insomnia, relieve pain, dementia and in their treatment.
Many people choose to apply the essential oils topically (directly on the skin) to treat diseases, infections and injuries. For example, emu oil has several benefits for pain relief and the uses include relief of sore muscles, joint pain or inflammation, carpal tunnel syndrome, gout, shin splints, ulcer, haemorrhoids, insect bites, ear infections, eye irritation, and the bite gel.
