Smile Essential Oils, Tinctures and Tea - oh my

Does anyone use essential oils internally? Or, topically? There's some good stuff about eo --

I have read some med info that there is evidence Frankincense EO (boswellia) have been shown to have anti cancer activity:

Frankincense oil derived from Boswellia carteri induces tumor cell specific cytotoxicity --https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2664784/

Then there is: Boswellia sacra essential oil induces tumor cell-specific apoptosis and suppresses tumor aggressiveness in cultured human breast cancer cells.---https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22171782

I use some more common EO for help with sinus headaches (peppermint, lavender) and insect bites (tea tree). I'm not a connoisseur though...

It really gets involved !
I am just learning. And I think it's gonna be awhile before I really know what I am doing... or why!

Do you use a diffuser?

Yes. I do. I love the floral oils. I also love the rosemary and lavendar!
I use a blend of oils and homeopathy for headaches that I found online. Then, I purchased a sleep oil and use it on the pups!

I think I went a tad overboard - as usual.
I like to add the anti-aging wrinkle smoother ones to my facial lotions.
My dog even has his own

How about you?

I don't use a diffuser because other family members don't like the smell. Every so often, if I get a bad enough headache, I'll add EO to water in a pot and boil it on my stove (leaning in to the steam), or use it in a facial steamer I have.

I mostly use EO mixed with a carrier oil or, like you, with my facial lotions. I have recently purchased a sleep blend which I am considering mixing in a spray bottle and squirting on our pillows at night. DH and I don't have trouble sleeping though, so I'm not sure I need it. LOL.

But tell me more about the anti-aging, wrinkle smoothing oils! I didn't know those existed!
