In yesterday’s post I gave you a wealth of essential oils research listed by ailment. For those who may be curious about particular oils, I thought it might also be a good idea to create a post that shows you the amazing benefits of essential oils listed by oil rather than the ailment it can help.
Please note that essential oils are not regulated by the FDA. Because they are not evaluated by the FDA, essential oils are not regulated to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any illness. I cannot and do not claim that essential oils can treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any illnesses. (And as you can probably tell, clearly the FDA frowns upon any such notion.) I can, however, present you with the essential oils research, the science of it all. With that said, here are some of the results of scientific studies regarding individual essential oils, listed in alphabetical order. The links to the studies are all highlighted in green.
