Essential oils make some of the most powerful antibacterial products around. While there are a number of essential oils which are perfect for keeping bacteria at bay, there are seven of them which stand head and shoulders above the rest. It is these that we will be taking a look at on this page.

Number One: Eucalyptus

In addition to this, you can actually find eucalyptus in a variety of different dental products. This is because it is brilliant at fighting cavities and keeping various dental conditions at bay.

This can help fight off bacteria in a number of different situations. For example, lemongrass is known for its ability to combat body odor, malaria, and bacteria which causes food poisoning.

Safety while using essential oils

Safety while using essential oils – Organicisbeautiful.com

Essential oils can be much more powerful than you anticipate. Personally I had many trouble using essential oils, also I have heard from many getting in trouble by not properly using essential oil. Safety should be first priority, while dealing with such hazardous substances. I’ve created this safety guide in order to help you deal with essential oils.

Including myself many have incorporated essential oil in the daily life. They are highly concentrated liquid; it is not carefully used can cause great harm. The essential oil with respect and follow me on this guide on how to safely use essential oils.

  1. Never use any essential oil undiluted.
    Many experts believe that, you should only use undiluted essential oil once you have gained enough knowledge on what you’re dealing with. Many people use lavender oil, tea tree oil or any other essential oil without any prior precaution, most of them use undiluted. If abused this can be very harmful for your skin and even may leave a permanent damage, you may not see any damage to soon but in the long run there can be. So just avoid that risk.
  2. Some essential oil may have an allergic reaction to your skin.
    So before you try essential oil on your face or your hands, just test it on a small patch of skin. Most preferably on your thighs. Years of dealing with essential oils, I’ve heard many allergic reactions and inflammation to certain oils. Should definitely be sure before you start using it.
  3. Do a proper research before you start using essential oil.
    Some essential oils need to be totally avoided by pregnant women and those with problems skin is. Patients suffering from diseases like asthma, epilepsy or other similar condition should also choose essential oils carefully. The proper research and consult with your doctor before you start incorporating essential oil in your daily life.

  4. Do not use essential oils in excess, when it comes to using it the less is more.
    Essential oils are extremely concentrated liquid only one or two drops is what all you need. When I started using essential oil, I was using it to much and in no time I was facing the consequences. So using essential oils in excess is a big no!!
  5. Never allow children to use essential oils without their parents knowledge.
    As mentioned above if abused essential oil can be quite dangerous. Make sure to keep essential oil from unsafe hands. There have been many cases where children consumed essential oil, you definitely don’t want to end up in such a situation.
  6. Never take essential oils internally without any prior knowledge.
    Consult and do a research before you take them internally. Essential oils are highly concentrated is and should not be taken in without any proper understanding of it. Essential oils may be derived from direct from various food products like black pepper, lemon, clove, orange etc but it doesn’t mean that there must be taken internally. I am not saying that you shouldn’t, but you definitely need to do a proper research.
  7. Essential oils can be extremely flammable keep them away from any fire hazards
