Why use Essential Oils daily?

Why you should use Essential Oils daily and what I use almost every single day!
While essential oils can (and should) be used for occasional health issues, perhaps their most useful application is for that of maintaining your health. Think of oils as you would a dietary supplement; when you use supplements you are doing so to give your body the nutrients it needs to function properly. While there are differences from person to person in usage preference, it is generally accepted that using the oils consistently is important to getting your desired results.

Using the Spice Essential Oils
If you remember from our using the herbal oil post, spices are from the root, stem, seed, fruit, or bark of the plant. This means that Black Pepper, Cardamom, Cassia, Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Coriander, Cumin, Dill, Fennel, Ginger, and Juniper Berry all fall under the spice category.

Like the herb essential oils, the spice essential oils are all steam distilled. The part of the plant that each oil comes from varies, however, which is why we included the plant part in individual descriptions of the oil.

All of the spice oils’ most obvious use is in cooking—these are potent oils however, so all that is needed in most instances is a toothpick's worth, that is, when you dip a clean toothpick in the oil and swirl that in your recipe, repeating if necessary.

Cooking with these oils helps enhance the flavors in the dish, and also carries over some of the benefits of the spice oil—for example, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Cassia, Coriander, and Cumin, Dill, Fennel…
