The use of essential oils is becoming increasingly popular in massage therapy, aromatherapy, and home remedies, but they have been used for their natural health benefits for at least 5,000 years. Sacred Indian texts from 2,000 BCE record the use of many kinds of oils for remedial and religious purposes. The ancient Egyptians were also among the first to use essential oils as cosmetics, as medicines, and even in their mummification and burial processes. Their botanical knowledge spread to the rest of the world after Egypt was conquered by the Romans, who began using olive oil to cleanse their skin in their bathhouses.

Today, essential oils are still believed to be natural remedies to a host of ailments. Peppermint oil in particular gives a cooling sensation, which can relieve sore muscles. Its scent is very energizing, so taking a few whiffs will perk you right up. The strong scent also provides relief for clogged sinuses. In addition, the oil is a natural antimicrobial, which means it kills microorganisms such as the ones that cause bad breath. This is why toothpastes are usually minty fresh!

The luxurious scent of rose oil is well known for being used in perfumes, but it is also a natural antidepressant, believed to bring positive thoughts and relaxtion. It can even be used as an antiseptic for minor cuts. It is increasingly being used in beauty products because it has been shown to clear up acne and prevent wrinkles. Rose oil is also one of the most expensive essential oils out there—it takes 60 roses to create a single drop!
