How to use essential oils
Smelling essential oils through gentle inhalations is the fastest way to change your state of mind and stress levels, who recommends setting an intention before placing a drop of artisan natural oils in the center of your palms.

Then rub your hands and lift them to your face, slowly inhaling through your nose. Other options, he notes, include the topical application of essential oils to keep the cocoons fragrant, add a few drops of the relaxation mix to your bath or spice up the entire room with an essential oil diffuser.
What to Know Before Buying Essential Oils
In such a crowded market, understanding which essential oils to invest in can be difficult – which is why Guillerman stresses the importance of buying essential oils directly from an aromatherapist or certified organic.
Don't look for bargains, look for quality, he says, noting that many essential oils are fake, diluted, or over-processed which can decrease efficiency and irritate the skin and respiratory tract.
He also advises against gathering overcrowded collections. Instead, start with the most important things: cleaning citrus fruits; mood-boosting flowers like lavender; soothing resins or roots (think frankincense, cedarwood, or vetiver); and stimulating scents, such as basil or rosemary.
