Essential oils can be bought at most stores selling natural products. Essential oils are categorized according to their healing properties. Top note, middle note, and base note are the three categories.
Top note essential oils can be used in bath water, tonics, steam inhalation, and in bug repellents and ointments. Some examples of top note essential oils are lemon oil, tea tree oil, basil, eucalyptus, and peppermint.
