An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Commonly used for aromatherapy purposes, essential oils can also be used to remove sticker gunk, make your room smell nice while vacuuming, concoct DIY toothpaste, deter rodents from hanging out in your house, and more.
Though essential oils are extremely versatile in their uses for around the home and for health, take precaution when using them. They should not be used on infants, children and pregnant women, and should be diluted with a carrier oil (such as jojoba oil or coconut oil) before applying externally.
