The suggested essential oils are readily available online and at some health food stores. While the French would beg to differ, essential oils are not for consumption. This holds true for western use of essential oils, however, the French have consumed essential oils for centuries. The consumption of essential oils is to be done under the supervision of a trained professional who understands the use of essential oils. They must always be diluted in a carrier (such as Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba oil, etc. also available at health food stores) before use. Add 2 to 3 drops of essential oil to approximately 1/8 cup of carrier oil. Mix gently. Keep tightly covered and use as required, preferably at bedtime. Keep out of direct light.
