How can essential oils help us to destress? Starting back during ancient Egyptian times, essential oils were used to treat conditions as well as for body preservation after death. The use of essential oils is also known as aromatherapy and can be administered directly to the skin, in a carrier oil or by a diffuser. Some essential oils are also safe for consumption.
