Essential Oils and their Uses


Here is a list of most of the essential oils I have in my collection. They are useful for anointing (anything from the self to candles to poppets to charms), drawing shapes, dropping on incense coals, and can be added to crafts such as candles, clay, etc. They tend to last longer than herbs, have wider application and stronger scents. Be careful if you plan to use them as some may cause allergic reactions.
