The list of health benefits of essential oils could go on and on but the most common health benefits you can get when cleaning with essential oils are:

And a few drops from the same bottle of essential oil can also be used in your diffuser or add to your favorite carrier oil or cream to enjoy the aroma and health benefits to your body. The bottom line is that a 10 ml bottle of essential oil goes a long way. It could even last for months!
