I am not, like, a witch or a dirty hippie, but I use essential oils. They smell nice, they calm me down, and unlike perfume they don't seem to assault the nostrils of people around me. Here's how you too can use essential oils in cool, sophisticated, only slightly witchy ways.

Use peppermint essential oil to get rid of headaches.

Peppermint essential oil was my gateway essential oil, because it is actually extremely useful! Peppermint contains large quantities of menthol, a strong analgesic, and applied topically it's great for temporarily getting rid of headaches. As a migraine sufferer, I always carry this one around.
